  • Welcome to week one of How To Be In Business Forever. Each week, I'll post a lesson for this class on my blog. Check out this week's post here
     
    Project: You will either have a business or you will invent a business and then you will map out your Business Model Canvas with the goal of sustainability as you go. You can do this by yourself or in Groups. It doesn't matter at all. The goal is to do the project and learn by doing. Share your first version here for feedback. 
     
     
    The thing I want you to focus on the most is the decisions you make as you fill out the canvas and which ones you were forced to compromise on some goal in order to maximize the sustainability of the business. Those are the magic decisions and the ones we want to document and discuss as we go through this course.
