How to Start a Business on a Shoestring Budget

The U.S. Small Business Administration and Trump University have developed, under a co-sponsorship agreement, a new FREE online business course.  The self-paced course, Start a Business on a Shoestring, is designed to help individuals understand how to create a small business on a very limited budget.  The “bootstrapping” exercise is easy to follow and filled with helpful business tips.  Four different business situations are profiled.  Instructors and SBA experts are used to guide students through the maze of starting a business.
