Are You on a Shoestring Budget?
Let’s grow your small business without spending a lot of money.
Affordable small business training
The average MBA costs over $160,000.
That’s why we started Shoestring Small Business. We teach small business owners, who are on a shoestring budget, how to build a profitable business.
Basically, we help real people get a plan for their small business, simply and affordably.
Practical, hands-on learning activities
We give you the tools to apply what you’ve learned to your own small business.
Our online lessons are custom-made for small business owners on a shoestring budget. There’s no fluff or jargon, just simple business strategies that really work.
It’s not enough to just restate what you’ve learned. We show you how to take your new business strategy and use it with your particular small business.
We give you step-by-step action plans and fun business challenges to help you apply what you’ve learned to your own small business.
Feedback from real instructors
When you become part of our community, you’re never alone.
Our Shoestring Business Classrooms allow you to personally connect with Shoestring Instructors and other small business owners.
