7 Udemy Classes Every Entrepreneur Must Take01. September 2017
With the cost of continuing education on the rise, I realized there had to be a better option for my self-education. I stumbled across Udemy. For those of you who don’t know what Udemy is, it’s an online learning platform where instructors teach you courses. It’d be the same as taking a college course online but less expensive.
There are classes on anything you want to learn. As a new entrepreneur, you will need to be versed in the different aspects of entrepreneurship. You need to save money to invest in your company. Why pay over $1,000 for a college class when you pay between $100 – $200 for a Udemy class?
Each class you take comes with a certificate of completion. Most classes are between five to ten hours. The average college class per semester is fifty – sixty hours.
If you haven’t any Udemy classes yet, you’re falling behind.
As an entrepreneur, there are seven essential Udemy classes you need to take.
Grant Cardone is a master salesman. He’s created an empire from his sales career. He’s one of the few people you should get sales advice from.
Selling is a part of any successful business. If you don’t learn to sell prepare to fail. Sales are essential, without them you don’t have a company.
In the course, you will learn sales basics, techniques and strategies that will allow you to sell anything. Wouldn’t it be nice to create revenue on demand?
Until you learn how to sell, your future will always be unpredictable. With the course, you’ll be able to see predictable results. Because once you master selling, you will never be broke.
It can be fearful when you approach someone when you’re selling them something. Grant will give you the confidence you need to sell anything. Selling doesn’t have to be terrifying, it can become enjoyable.
