This class is an exciting overview of all the basics of how to start and grow a business. It covers topics like creating a business plan, customer relationships, human resources, operations and so much more! I’m looking forward to connecting with each of you as we navigate this course together over the next couple of months. While the online format is not my personal favorite way of instruction, I am confident there are many things you can learn both about entrepreneurship and a little about yourself as well! Communication Apart from teaching, I have a full-time job in management. I attempt to check daily, if not more, and I will be sending communication to the class each Monday to recap what is being posted and any critical announcements. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO COMMUNICATE WITH ME VIA BLACKBOARD. I DO NOT CHECK THAT REGULARLY. Course Description (UH Catalog) Planning and organizing a single proprietorship with emphasis on technical assistance, marketing strategy, location, financing, legal issues, management of human resources, promotion, business records, and credit.
Time Management One of the most important skills needed to be a successful business owner and manager is time management. As you continue to move towards graduation, you will eventually be thrust into the real world where time is truly everything. It is so easy to get derailed and push priorities aside with the distractions of today. You have a full 16 weeks to complete the assigned coursework. TED Discussions, the Business Plan and Book Discussion Papers all have specific due dates. The quizzes are completely up to you. Having said that, your ability to manage YOUR time through this course is imperative. Apart from approved, serious medical issues with documentation submitted through proper university channels, late work will not be accepted under any circumstances. If you do not feel you have the time management skills to successfully complete this course – drop it. EVERY semester, at least one student contacts me discussing their individual need for extensions in the 11 th hour. Your grades are submitted as if you are a graduating senior. I like to get them completed and in early to honor that process.
