Let's Start a Business

This set of slides is a lesson plan for ESL students to start a business. It is the first in a series.

  • I failed at two businesses so this article was a good refresher on turning my ideas into a side business or even making money on the side especially online. What I learnt was that it's important to find passionate clients who want to pay you. Especially if you are a creative entrepreneur, freelancer or designer, it's better to look for demand before creating a product. It sounds simple but most people first make and then try to convince someone to buy. Read this before you start a business. Thank me later. http://www.sidebusinessextraincome.com/startabusinessfirststep/ or http://www.growingstartup.com/getpaidmore/#sthash.RE1HDxUH.dpbs
