Welcome to Business 101 – How to Start / Plan a Successful Business for Teens – FLEX Class
This class is one of our most popular classes which we have just overhauled, re-filmed and made NEW for 2023!
Pre-Recorded Online Course – allows your learners to watch the pre-recorded videos and do them at a time that is FUN for them! You can also spend extra time on the topics your child is most interested in. Since this is a flex class with no live meetings, students can log in at a convenient time to complete the week’s lesson. We will be going through each week as a group and I will post the lesson weekly (depending on which day you started).
No experience is required to take this class.
Students will be provided with four separate videos to watch for each topic. These are outlined below.
The videos will contain the information required to give students a good understanding of each topic, and each one will include homework for the students to undertake during the week. Homework assignments will include writing a list of topics, interests, and areas of expertise in which the students might be interested in developing a business. There will also be research assignments into how to choose a business name, the importance of color when selecting a logo, the difference between product and service companies, and the different forms of business funding available.
After watching each video and completing the homework assignments, students will be provided with feedback and the specific next steps to make their business vision a reality, including how to write a business plan.
Timeframe for the Week:
Mondays – The teacher will post the information needed for the week.
Tuesdays-Wednesday – The teacher can answer any questions pertaining to the topic of the week. The students will need to complete any homework assignments and answer any questions in the class.
