This class isn't for hedge fund managers, capital investors, or bankers. This is a class designed for the musician who is ready to start a business.
Are you ready to get started? Do you have an idea, and want to start with the basics? In this course, we will focus on the first steps any business venture: Startup. We will use the real-world experiences of the award-winning instructor and university professor Dr. Jason Allen. But don't be worried - Dr. Allen is best known around campus for keeping things simple, accessible, and useful.
Dr. Allen is the founder of a number of successful businesses, and is a top-rated Udemy instructor. In 2017 Star Tribune Business featured him as a "Mover and a Shaker," and he is recognized by the Grammy Foundation for his music education classes.
While a lot of business courses focus on getting rich quick, this is a course for those interested in starting and building a long-term business with a firm foundation. You won't find "get rich quick" schemes here - everything we will learn in this class is practical, useable steps to monetize your music career.
This is the first part of a multiple-course series.
In this course, we will focus the entire course on the steps to start a business. First, we will focus on the advantages and concerns of new businesses, specifically in the arts. Next, we will walk through the different types of businesses - from corporations, to family businesses, to nonprofit organizations. Most importantly, we will learn what is best for your business, and walk through the step-by-step process to setup and register your business.
