Start Your Own E-Business in 5 Easy Steps


Published on

This Power Point was created during the Summer of May 2009 for my Business Presentation class at Berkeley College. We had to come up with our own idea for this presentation on what we wanted to talk about for our final project that was associated with business. Since I had experience with running my own E-Commerce business in the past, why not give some insight to people who are interested in how to get started and give them some tips. When viewing the presentation press on your mouse or space bar to continue onto the next slide. Enjoy!
