Few business owners begin with a formal education in business management. You have a passion for a product, or a talent for service, and the hardiness (or naiveté) to take off on our own. Initially, you may focus on product quality and delivery, which can sustain business for years—or at least create the illusion that business is okay. But ultimately, success requires learning how to work on the business, not just in it.
Missouri Bank's Small Business Course teaches you how to focus on your business in areas most critical for building the creatively and financially rewarding business you envision.
Consultant and entrepreneur Dodie Jacobi facilitates this 6-week course, combining proven and practical information with actionable tasks that improve how you do business. Guest experts speak from a variety of fields, while homework and reading assignments reinforce their presentations. Course size is limited to 12 participants to allow the course to respond to each owner’s unique position. The confidential environment also provides a weekly forum for learning from peers by sharing challenges and success.
To get the most out of this course, plan to commit to each week’s course attendance and allow an average of two additional hours for homework assignments and weekly readings from the mini-library of five books you'll receive.
The cost of the course is $595, though mobank customers receive a $100 scholarship. This fee includes all costs associated with the course, including parking, the mini-library of books, and brain-focusing snacks. The course fee may be paid by check payable to instructor Dodie Jacobi, transfer from your mobank account, or credit card (a 3% service fee will be added.)
