is a fascinating five week short course delivered by Charmaine Simpson.
This course aims to give you the knowledge, confidence and tools needed to accomplish your goals of achieving economic empowerment and business development through entrepreneurship.
There has never been a better time to take control of your economic situation. The economic recession means that there are a lot of problems in the world. The art of business is solving people's problems and meeting your customers needs. Hence, there has never been a better time to start to address your economic situation and plan to run your own business.
What stopping you?
Is it time to make a change in your life and your family's life?
Furthermore, with the vast number of technologies and free resources available that we have at our disposal, it has never been easier to change your economic situation or run your own business.
Class One: What is keeping us in economic hardship?
This class argues that if this question could be satisfactorily answered then we could address the specific issues keeping many in the community in economic hardship. We also address the economic trap, the challenges facing the Black worker, the challenges facing the Black consumer, the challenges facing the Black saver and existing Black businesses. We will also study historical and present day successful businesses with our community.
Class Two: The George Subira Model for Economic Empowerment
This class presents the empowerment ideas of George Subira. In particular we address the race factor and money making, positive and negative attitudes and behaviours in the community about business and the importance of preparing Black children to handle responsibility. We also tackle equity, money handling, developing a credit history, the necessity of property, and competing business theories.
Class Three: Starting Your Own Business and The Importance of Marketing
This class presents a guide on how to start a business from scratch and contains useful information, tips and advice. Marketing is an important part of economic empowerment. In this class, you will learn the fundamentals of marketing by identifying what marketing is, what it does and how to use it to generate income. We will look how to embrace the internet to replenish old ways of marketing such as website development, social media marketing and email marketing.
Class Four: Rich Dad's Lessons for Economic Empowerment
This class popularises the empowerment ideas of Robert Kiyosaki. In particular we explain the 'Six Lessons of Rich Dad,' the 'Cashflow Quadrant' and the concept of 'Leverage'. Finally we present a programme of action based on the Kiyosaki model.
Class Five: A Long Term Action Plan for Financial Freedom
The final class addresses some of the issues involved in making the transition from worker to business owner. In particular we anticipate some of the problems likely to be faced by Black women, and the importance of having mentors. Finally, we end by offering a combined Subira-Kiyosaki action plan for financial freedom.
All of the classes are highly visual two hour PowerPoint presentations with practical exercises.
