GoForth’s President and founder, Dr Leslie Roberts, was interviewed in the May/June issue of Mompreneur magazine.
Mompreneur is a magazine for Canadian women who “are balancing the role of motherhood with being an entrepreneur.” This month, Dr. Roberts was interviewed about GoForth Institute and issues facing entrepreneurs – the importance of small business education, access to online learning and what Canadian entrepreneurs told her they needed from the country’s first national small business training centre.
Mompreneur magazine is available at Chapters/Indigo now. Thanks to Mompreneur magazine for having us!
When it comes to getting well-rounded small business training, what best fits your lifestyle – business courses delivered in a classroom or via online video modules? Entrepreneurs lead busy lives, no matter what stage of entrepreneurship they’re in. Canadian small business courses have traditionally been taught in classrooms, but online learning is becoming more attractive each year.
Is online learning right for you?
A certain blog post by Clive Shepherd has been giving us food for thought lately. The post is titled Online learning is more efficient than face-to-face training – discuss. In it, Shepherd outlines the ways in which he feels online learning is more efficient: it uses fewer resources than face-to-face training, is more conducive to learning at one’s own pace and students don’t waste time or money traveling to a classroom.
At GoForth Institute, we’d heard similar feedback from entrepreneurs themselves. They told us their time and money were valuable to them. They wanted convenience and affordability without sacrificing quality. That’s why GoForth Institute offers online learning for entrepreneurs that can be accessed from any computer – anytime, anywhere. It’s engaging, comprehensive small business education that’s designed for the entrepreneurial lifestyle.
Online learning integrates technology with great education
Personally, we love the thought that something as convenient and inexpensive as online learning exists to make entrepreneurs’ lives easier. We know some people still prefer classroom learning, but for entrepreneurs who are starting a home-based business, live in rural areas or simply don’t want to change out of their pyjamas – we support you!
What do you think – do you prefer web-based training over classroom environments? Do you feel online learning is more efficient? As an entrepreneur, what specific things do you value in online learning? Tell us about your experiences!
