Small Business Leadership

Across the United States, students go deeper into debt to study from textbooks written by academics who have little, if any, real world experience in practicing what they teach.

Whether you’re young in years or young at heart, you realize that to survive and thrive in the “New Normal,” you’ll need your own business. And, so, you are ready to say to the world: I AM GENERATION SELF EMPLOYED!

Why Have a Business? Hi, My name is David Lantz. I’m an Author, Speaker and Teacher. Perhaps, like me, you’ve noticed that people are searching for a way to survive in our part time economy. I call this group of people Generation Self Employed, and have developed a set of small business courses built around this concept. Generation Self Employed’s mission is to help you understand what your passions are and how you are wired to best use the gifts and talents God has given you.

First, we must learn how to become Entrepreneurs. You see, our education system is broken. Colleges and universities present their courses to students as though it was some sort of giant jigsaw puzzle, expecting students to magically put the pieces together.

What if, instead of going thousands of dollars into debt, people spent only a few hundred dollars and invested their time in learning how to start and run their own business? Are you looking for curriculum and coaching that puts all the pieces of the gigantic jigsaw puzzle our education system has created together to help you create a business? If so, clcik Entrepreneurship: Complexity Simplified. I’ll give you the first course, Why Have a Business, for free just for completing our sign up form.
