Business 101: Learn How to Create and Run Your Own Profitable Business

Instructor:  Anne Reith, Ph.D.


Learn the basic tools you will need to start your own profitable business in any field!

When Anne started her metaphysical business in 2002, she knew very little about being a small business owner.  As is true of many new business owners, she often had to learn “the hard way” about things like business licenses, income tax, and marketing (e.g., websites, email lists).

Anne always said that if she was ever in a position to do so, she would create and teach a class covering the nuts and bolts of starting your own business. This is that class! 

Overall, this workshop is intended to help save you time, energy, money, and headaches.  Dr. Anne wants you to be successful and even have fun!  She has been teaching this workshop since 2004, and many of her students are now running successful businesses.
