We live in times where it gets more and more important every single day to learn the basics of entrepreneurship.
So why don’t we teach these things? Why do we only have MBAs when even the name clearly states that you’ll only learn about administration and managing a company.
Why is there no such thing as an MBC, a Master of Business Creation, where you learn all the available tools and techniques you need to start a company.
And I’m talking about real world projects here. And not some imaginary business plan mumbo jumbo where you write a 30 pages long business plan with the goal of raising millions of dollars.
These days you can already start a side business with less than $100 in your pocket. Just join the Amazon Affiliate program or any other affiliate program out there and try to sell some of these things.
Then you’ll learn the basic metrics, how many customers you need to send to your site to be able to sell one product (a hell lot by the way), how to do real world marketing and all of this stuff.
And if you don’t know any of these things today, you’ll most likely also not know how to do these things when you work or start your “real” project.
All you really need these days is a website. And then you try to figure out how you can send traffic to that site and get people to buy the stuff on your site. And you get the stuff on your site through affiliate programs.
With zero risk. And zero cost to source any products. No storage space needed. No delivery. And no customer service. And that’s the stuff we really need to teach people.
That’s how you learn how to create a business instead of learning how to manage an already existing business...
P.S. While writing this I decided to put up a quick and dirty sign up form. So if you’re interested in how this might look like in the real world, sign up to The $100 Startup School. My version of the Master of Business Creation. If we get more than 100 subscribers I’ll launch it. So sign up, hit the recommend button, let everyone who might be interested in this know about it and we can go on from there and make it happen!
