Entrepreneurship is not for everyone.

Today, it seems like everybody and their dog wants to start their own company, yet not everyone who starts an online business will succeed.

How do you have any chance of standing out and being one that does succeed?

I’ll tell you–you’ve got to get educated.

Business majors to high school dropouts know that true entrepreneurs need to always be learning.

It’s what keeps you competitive! And lucky for you, the online education industry has never been better. From universities like MIT and NYU to sites like Udemy and Saylor Academy, the internet is ripe with resources to help you exercise your entrepreneurial mind.

I’ve put together a list that highlights six essential areas that you need to learn about in order to be a great entrepreneur: finances, sales, productivity, writing, interpersonal skills, and online marketing. Each link here is a course or resource to help you master entrepreneur skills. Those with the ($) next to them cost money to participate in – all the rest are completely free! Enjoy.

Entrepreneur Education and Training List of Resources

Finances

If you’re going to be a smart entrepreneur, you’ll need to know finances inside and out.

Sales

Like it or not, a good entrepreneur is an even better salesperson. There’s no way around it!

Productivity

It may seem a bit wishy-washy, but productivity truly is a skill that can be learned.

Writing

Learning how to write well is absolutely essential to your success as a businessperson.

Interpersonal Skills

You need to know how to deal with clients, employees, partners, and investors. Strong interpersonal skills help you do just that.

Online Marketing

There are thousands of blogs out there that can help you with online marketing. In addition, check out these resources.

 

Scheduled Courses

In addition to the links listed above, consider checking out courses provided on Coursera and edX. These classes are scheduled so that everyone completes the work at the same time. While this may not be the most convenient, it can be invaluable to have access to peers and a teacher in real-time.

Check the sites often to see when new courses are starting.

Good luck with your online entrepreneurial adventure!

    This looks like a great list. I’m going to start with the Angel Investors Support course. My daughter has thoroughly investigated a yoga system that only needs financial support to get started. I’ve visited another studio of the same 26 & 2 in 40/40 (40 degrees Celsius, with 40% humidity) and it was well attended and I loved the practice.

    I’ve done several copywriting and marketing courses and will never stop learning. I’m a lifelong learner and I’m also a business management teacher. I’ve often equated sales and teaching.

    Thanks for the great list. I’ll be bookmarking this page.

    Hey Matthew,

    This was a really great post that Adam shared. Sorry that I missed this one last month but since most people coming online today obviously are NOT aware of everything involved, this is a brilliant resource.

    I’ll be sure to share this one of course because off the top of my head, I know a handful that need to go back to the drawing board so this will come in very handy for them.

    Really appreciate you both sharing these resources with us and great job.

    Enjoy what’s left of this week.
