The 5 week, 10-session program covers such relevant topics as Establishing a Business, Developing a Business Plan & Projections, Understanding Financial Statements, Basic Accounting, Market Analytics, Marketing Plan & Branding, Digital Marketing, Policies & Procedures, Leveraging Amazon, Business Resources, and Accessing Capital.

“The training was the best gift to my business. It motivated me; it gave me the resources I needed – and those I didn’t know even existed! The atmosphere was kind, compassionate, and productive.”

“The MBF Business Training is essential to any executive that is serious about becoming and remaining viable.”
