So last night I went to the orientation class for the FirstStep FastTrack program. It's a GREAT program for micro/small-business. My sister took the course about two years ago and she has never stopped raving about. They pretty much teach you how to start your business and at the end of the course you have developed (for the most part) your business plan. My sister said that this course really helped her when she got her business loan, but even more importantly it took her to the next level with her business.
Anyway, I am excited! This is a huge step for me! Wish me luck!!!
That's awesome! Good luck with the class and your future business. Let us know how it goes!
Sounds like a great step. Could you tell me how long the class is? weeks, or months? Good Luck and enjoy it.
That classe are 12 weeks, 3 hrs each week, once a week. She explained to us at the orientation that the Kauffman Foundation owes the curriculum, but different organizations carry them out. So, in theory wherever you go, you are learning the same curriculum.
Sounds good. Good luck and keep us posted how things go.
Congratulations on the classes! I was curious what school this is through? Or is it an online program?
thank you for the link. I searched and there is a class near my home. I e-mailed them for more info. Thanks and Good luck to you!!!
48 hours of class and you have everything you need? Why am I spending 16 hours a week for the next two years to get my small business/entrepreneurship degree? good luck to you, I hope it works out!
@kitty122000 We're talking two totally different things! . It's there to help give you the FIRST STEP (thus the name into starting a business. One of my siblings has BSBA and another is working on his and I would never compare their degrees to this course. The program is great, but no degree.
And thanks everyone for the congratulations! I'm excited.
