Courses On How To Start Your Own Business
I offer two courses for people who are looking to earn their livelihood from self-employment or develop a side business to complement their wages.
Birth Your Business is designed to help you clarify your business idea and introduce you to the foundations of starting your business.
Boost Your Business is a course for those who have either done my foundation course or have an existing business which they wish to grow.
The majority of people realise that the old paradigm of business as usual only leads to the wholesale destruction of our species.

The documentary “The New Corporation” is an inspiring work replete with stories of resistance and change from around the world.

After taking part in the Writes of passage 'Birth your Business' retreat in the lovely setting of Katoomba in the Blue Mountains, I can't speak highly enough of Marcus and his program. I was so impressed and grateful to Marcus for his thorough mentorship as he offers a fountain of experience and information about getting your business off the ground and into the digital world. If you have a business idea that you would like to share with the world but are confused about how to get started than this is the program you need to take. - Anthony M
