Write your own business commandment

About the Class

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:

  • Management skills
  • Enabling ideas
  • Refining your personal brand 

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. 

**A winner has been selected to recieve a $5,000 endowment for submitting the most compelling business commandments. Skillshare is no longer distributing promotional codes in exchange for proof of purchase of "Unlabel".**
