Taking an online course: Part II

The hardest thing to do when you are taking an online course and working is finding the time to take the course. The course of Self-Employment with a Minimal Investment through The Hadley School. This is one of my passions; to assist blind clients to start their own business.

The main thing that I have learned so far is to pull up the course online and bring up Microsoft Word I need to close all other programs so I am not distracted by email.

I use the alt + tab to switch between programs so I can take notes. So far that is working for me. If there is a sentence that I like and want to use I do a shift control arrow and high light. Then control + C to copy. Then  switch to the Word document with and alt + tab  and then control + V to paste. I have set up a folder in Word to keep my notes in.  From my experience and what I have learned from the course so far is: 

  1. Starting your own business is usually harder than going to work for someone else.
  2. A true entrepreneur has to be a self-starter and willing to take some chances.
  3. It is not for everyone.
