Small Business e-School



To provide an online, practical business learning option where small business owners/managers are able to select from a series of individual business practice topics.  These topics are deemed to be of either of general commercial interest to the individual or are seen by the individual as having specific relevance to their business operation.



This learning system is not designed to be a complete course in total business competency, nor is it an attempt or desire to provide any type of recognized certification for the individual.

It is specifically designed and targeted by The Business Solutions Shop to allow the individual small-business owner or manager to be able to up-skill their business knowledge, over a range of practical and relevant subjects ... subjects selected by them as being either necessary and/or helpful to them in improving their knowledge and skill in what they do run a business.

The e-school system is not intended by the authors to be an exhaustive or complete treatise on all commercial problems, issues or principles found in the business world today.

The system is, however, designed to provide ready access to low-cost, commercially relevant and practical solutions to many of the common problems and issues all small businesses faces on a daily basis.  The broad issue addressed here is that small business owners and managers often have nowhere easy to turn to improve their business knowledge and the practical application to their business operation that the new knowledge allows.

The programme is designed to be entirely self-motivating and self-evaluating, and therefore self-assessing as to progress and value.
