Entrepreneurship 101 is a 7-session, 7 hour class that was created for individuals who desire to control their destiny by becoming entrepreneurs and generating passive income.
As young boy who grew up in the inner city ghetto with seven siblings, I never imaged that I would one day own a thriving consulting firm. The idea of becoming an entrepreneur and generating passive income was foreign to me. I was raised to pursue a good education so that I could get a good job. Securing a good job and working hard for others was commonplace and highly valued among those who nurtured me.
Personally, I do not believe that there is anything wrong with securing a good job and working hard, but I am mindful that working hard for others will not propel my lifestyle or my loved-ones' lifestyles to the next level. In my short-time on this earth, I have never met anyone who has acquired wealth by solely working hard for others. Given this revelation, I launched my consulting firm in 2006 and have reaped unbelievable financial benefits in a very short time span.
As a successful entrepreneur and philanthropist who believe in giving back, I created Entrepreneurship 101 to help you build a prosperous business that will enable you to generate passive income and become financially independent in the twentieth-first century.
