Who Even Is An Entrepreneur?: Crash Course Business - Entrepreneurship #1

You've probably heard the word "Entrepreneur" thrown around a lot in business. It conjures images of Elon Musk, Bill Gates, or Oprah Winfrey. But, it goes way beyond that. In this episode of Crash Course Business: Entrepreneurship, Anna helps us to figure out who Entrepreneurs are, and what that title actually means.

Value Proposition and Customer Segments: Crash Course Business - Entrepreneurship #3

Value is the core of any business, and it directs all future decisions, innovations, and customers that get targeted. Even if we’ve thought about the big picture, if we can’t explain how an idea makes someone’s life better, then why should anyone pay attention? In this episode of Entrepreneurship, Anna helps us ask the questions: "What value do I deliver?" and "Who are my customers?"

What Can You Learn from Your Competition?: Crash Course Business Entrepreneurship #4

We’re used to competitions with clear winners and losers: baseball games, math olympiads, pie-eating contests, and games involving thrones. We crown a victor and everyone else goes home empty-handed!

In business, though, there isn’t just one winner. So as entrepreneurs, we have to take stock in the middle of the competition, and ask the question: “how competitive am I?”

Legal Basics and Business Entity Formation: Crash Course Business Entrepreneurship #5

It can be daunting to move from the abstract idea stage to the realm of bank accounts, taxes, and liability. Sometimes, it can feel like you’re making arbitrary decisions, but we’re going to wade through the legalese together. Things are about to get legit.

Minimum Viable Product and Pivoting: Crash Course Business Entrepreneurship #6

Imagine if the only videos on YouTube were people looking for love. That could have been the world we lived in! Before it had 1.9 billion users per day, YouTube started as a video-based dating service, complete with the truly excellent catchphrase: “Tune in, Hook Up.”

The reason they didn’t flop is because they were willing to listen and fundamentally change their business when their original idea didn’t meet the needs of their market. They were clever observers and nimble enough to pivot.

Testing Your Product and Getting Feedback: Crash Course Business Entrepreneurship #7

To figure out if an idea is as good as we think it is, we have to talk to our customers. We’ve said it over and over again. We have to ask them what they like, dislike, want, or need, and we want honest feedback about our product or service. But… how?

The Core of a Business - Key Activities & Resources: Crash Course Business Entrepreneurship #8

When someone says they’re “studying business” or they “work in business,” they could mean so many different things. They could be in marketing, sales, finance or human resources. So much goes into keeping a company running smoothly.

How to Seek Help and Find Key Partners: Crash Course Entrepreneurship #9

Entrepreneurs do have to wear a lot of hats, but we need to understand where we fall short and where other people or products could help get the job done. We can’t be an expert in everything or have time to do everything. But some people or some software can help! It’s time to figure out where we could use some help and find our people.
