Getting yourself up to speed and beyond
In the world of education, more and more students are completing their coursework online. Many universities offer accredited classes over the internet, which students can complete to work towards their degree. Other websites, notably Coursera, offer free classes for people who aren’t necessarily in school, but who just want to learn from top college professors.
Headquartered in Austin, Amazing.com, offers an opportunity for entrepreneurs to take “results-focused” online classes that will teach them skills and strategies for starting or improving their business. The interactive courses are taught by seasoned entrepreneurs eager to share what they have learned from their successes and mistakes.
Amazing.com promises to teach “the principles, strategies, and tactics that get people real, measurable business results.” The classes often include online video lectures, access to software and templates, and private coaching sessions. By signing up for a class, you will also be able to network with a large online community of entrepreneurs; the site boasts 13,622 students from 102 countries.
Amazing.com is built for entrepreneurs
The site is especially targeted towards the entrepreneur who is eager to start her own business so that she can be their own boss, make her own schedule, and experience a higher degree of financial freedom.
Founder Matt Clark started his career in an investment banking firm before taking the dive into entrepreneurship. He wants to assure potential business owners that entrepreneurship “doesn’t have to be scary or reckless,” and says that he named the site Amazing.com because people are amazed to realize that “employment and unemployment aren’t your only options.”
