so far

so far,it is really great.

I feel like so far he isn't covering entrepreneurial ideas for businesses like restaurants or hospitality.

To soon in the learning proses to fully appreciate the content and give a true assessment - other wise maybe be a five full stars once I have had the opportunity to see more of the course (only 6 lectures) viewed so far.

I will put in practice Guy's teaching - simple and practical So far, my favorite course on Udemy & I’ve done several.

So far so good!

El material de ayuda aporta valor para practicar sobre lo expuesto So far this information has been covered in his books and youtube videos, but it's nice to have it in all one location and organized and indexed for easy reference to come back to.

So far I've only gone through the first part and have benefited from the mantra idea & the types of business models and which one to narrow down & build my business on.


So far better and better!

Gives you a realistic view of what to expect as an entrepreneur Very high level so far, but a great start.

business models

From a previous Business model bootcamp, I noted 3 easy perspectives of looking at business models: Direct B-Models e.g SAAS products, Photographers, supermarkets, restaurant; Multisided B-models e.g Facebook, Twitter,..; Marketplace e.g Amazon, Uber ,where you earn intermediation fees.

I especially liked the chapters about the business models and social media.

So pleasant to listen to him he explains difficult complex business ideas business models into simple words that anyone can understand Guy Kawasaki is an authority in the world of entrepreneurship.

I have never seen business models broken down this way, and also the overall scope of an idea but having something that can be turned into a profit base is the only way it works.

The part of business models was very helpful for me at this time that I just stating my startup.

Very informative and presenter is very knowledgeable the business models part was extremely helpful in guiding my thoughts It's definitely going back to the basics of business but it's still early in the course to tell.

The business models lesson and the simple approach on how to produce a realistic initial forecast are to be kept in every aspiring entrepreneur's toolbox.

If you are an entrepreneur you can't go wrong taking this course (and picking up any of his books).

I'v read 2 of his books, I'v seen him Live at a Wobi event, and now with this Guide, I've been overwelmed with the amount of detail that sometimes we forget to re-check.

Great insight, Guy is just a great speaker, Why haven't I read his books yet?

feel like

And I feel like I am just having a conversation with a cocky friend of my dad's who is trying to impress me with his casual knowledge of business, but I still don't feel like I'm learning much about entrepreneurship in general.

I don't feel like it's all theoretical with him.

I feel like near the end I had just spent a lot of time listening someone read blog posts to me (which, would save me time in a lot of ways from having to click and read them myself, so, that's kind of good), and had been given a few book recommendations, but there's nothing here that is just groundbreaking legendary genius.

Guy's an expert, for sure (major understatement) – but, his course makes me feel like there's just a few of us sitting around a table.

I also feel like I am saving time by getting to the point.

He really know what he is talking about.

Ad esempio qualcosa sull'idea generation oppure un maggior dettaglio su alcuni step succesivi In-depth description and He knows what he talking about.

He is so calm and peaceful and at the same time knows what he is talking about.
