Starting a business can be very daunting for newbie entrepreneurs who are putting their planning and execution skills to the test. Quite often, a lot of aspiring entrepreneurs also hesitate to pursue their business ideas for fear of making mistakes or because they feel unequipped to launch something on their own. This is where online business courses and training such as the ones offered by Entrepreneurs Academy 101 come in very handy.

It is designed to prepare them to jump-start their businesses in a strategic way through well-designed courses that will empower them to avoid common business pitfalls, create fail-proof plans, and develop effective systems that will ensure smooth operations.
Since the beginning of Covid 19, the way we earn a living has changed. During the pandemic, many companies allowed their employees to work from home. As a result of this, people are choosing to leave their current jobs in search of an alternative way to earn an income in lieu of going back into the workplace. They are realizing that working from home, having a home-based business and becoming an entrepreneur is more appealing. Millions of people walked away from their jobs, and because of this, “The Great Resignation” was coined. So where does one go to learn how to become a successful entrepreneur?
