Quick Skills

Each title in the Quick Skills Series can be used as an individual learning tool in which learners work on their own, or in a directed learning setting with an instructor. You can expand your students’ career skills by combining several Quick Skills titles into a customized learning plan designed specifically for your classes. The short, 100-page Interactive E-Textbooks are effective as basic texts or as supplements to other materials.

Skills for the First-Time Entrepreneur

Entrepreneurship occurs from cyberspace to the corner deli and employs almost 50% of all U.S. workers. Small, owner-run companies propel the U.S. economy in new directions and create the majority of new jobs. The fast growing segment of entrepreneurship is women-owned business.

In response to surveys, students coming through schools today—Gen Z—identify themselves as future entrepreneurs. Your classroom is the beginning of their education about the opportunities, risks, rewards, characteristics and knowledge needed to become a success.

Each Workshop/Chapter of Skills for the First-Time Entrepreneur includes an opening story, instructional content regarding owning or working in a small business, several critical thinking and problem solving activities, a Wrap-Up of key points plus related websites. A Facilitator/Instructor Guide accompanies Skills for the First-Time Entrepreneur and each of the other Quick Skills Interactive E-Textbooks.
