For generations a common piece of advice that we’ve all heard from teachers to parents to mentors is, “knowledge is power”. However, as we all navigate our busy lives as small business owners, it can be incredibly challenging to put that age old adage into practice.
When we don’t put “knowledge is power” into practice as hard working entrepreneurs, we can miss out on a number of advantages such as:
- Being behind on the latest tech tools and software to run our businesses more efficiently
- Losing out on major government contracts or six-figure long-term client proposals
- Spending more hours trading our time for money versus creating passive income streams
The list could go on but I’m sure even those three are unsettling enough to get you thinking about how to pour more knowledge into your small business owner tool kit in order to scale up and gain more financial independence and time freedom.
At Synture, our primary goal is to empower small business owners to make the strategic decisions that are going to help them meet their goals sooner than later.
With that idea in mind, we created a savvy and informative online business academy. Our academy is jam-packed with over three hours of content that teaches small business owners how to launch (or relaunch), manage, and grow their businesses.
Specifically, it provides deep dives into business management and business finances. We are currently in the process of adding lessons on digital marketing for small businesses.
When we take a bird’s eye view of our entire online business academy there are three lessons that will be extremely impactful for small business owners to make sure they take.
These three picks are ideal for those that have just started their business as well as for those that have been in business for a while. Mainly because the small business world moves fast. What you may have learned in even 2020, looks slightly different and in some cases dramatically different in 2022.
Here are the three courses to start diving into with the Synture Online Business Academy:
Registering Your Business
This lesson walks you through the steps it takes to legally register your business in your state.
Did you know that 86% of small businesses are registered as sole proprietorships? (Small Business Administration)
When your business is properly registered in your state, you can open a business bank account, pay taxes, receive capital (loans and credit), and hire employees.
10 Questions To Ask Before Borrowing (a loan)
This lesson provides a checklist of questions to ask yourself to determine your creditworthiness before applying for a business loan.
Did you know that 16.5% of small businesses are funded by business loans? (Small Business Administration)
Access to capital is the one opportunity gap that Synture is working hard to close for small business owners, and we’re starting this initiative by teaching solid knowledge around business credit.
Accounting Software for Small Businesses
This lesson walks you through the top software programs that you can use in order to have organized bookkeeping and payroll.
Did you know that 61% of employees in the US are employed at a small business? (Small Business Administration)
Without a solid software program for your business you could miss important payments, experience tax issues, and overlook ways you can save money.
Overall, these three lessons serve as the heartbeat for our online business academy. Without thoroughly understanding and putting into practice these lessons, the rest of the lessons will feel incomplete.
As Small Business Experts, it is crucial for us to share the most up to date knowledge and resources with you. There has never been a better time to thrive as a small business owner as it is now. Yes, competition in every niche is fierce but with the right strategy in place and knowledge in the palm of your hands, there is no way you can’t blow past the competition.
