What You'll Learn
In this class you will learn my tips, tricks and mantras for running a business, inspired by Biggie's Crack Commandments . These include:
One of the most important lessons I have learned through two decades of building my own businesses is that wisdom and guidance can be found in the most unlikely of places. As a result, I've structured this Skillshare class on my principles of business around the legendary hip-hop track "Ten Crack Commandments" by Biggie Smalls. On the surface it would appear that Biggie is rapping about illegal drug sales, but the knowledge dropped in this song actually applies to all businesses no matter the industry.
This class is for anyone from a young entrepreneur venturing into your first business endeavor to an experienced CEO running a company with thousands of employees. Trust me, you will all take away some information that will improve your business.
Class $5,000 Endowment
This class is project-based which means you will also take part in the teaching by writing your own business commandement. You'll reappropriate a lyric, line or saying from pop culture that inspires you and share it a as a business commandment. Keep the commandement 15 words or less and include an image that represents it and a short paragraph explaining the inspiration behind it. I encourage you to get as creative as possible in going above and beyond here!
To encourage this communal learning initiative, I will be giving a $5,000 endowment to the student who submits the most compelling business commandement, as judged by myself and my team, between the date the class starts and November 15, 2013.

Marc recently published "Unlabel: Selling You Without Selling Out"
"With Unlabel, you will learn how to discover your own voice by overcoming fear and taking action, what it means to deliver on your promises, why failure is essential, how to understand how your product or service makes people feel, and how to recognize if your nostalgia for the past is hampering your ability to envision your future.
Unlabel is a bold and honest approach to building an authentic personal brand, growing a bootstrap start-up into a sustainable business."
Ecko continues to innovate as he strives to provide tools for the creative class to build their own businesses and brands in fashions that go against the corporate norms.
