Rather than a traditional lecture format, courses are offered within a global online learning community in which learners collaborate and learn by doing. Instructors are industry leaders who share their skills with anyone who wants to learn. No credits are offered. Founded by online entrepreneurs Michael Karnjanaprakorn and Malcolm Ong, Skillshare’s online “campus” was launched in April 2011. Its catalog has grown from 15 to more than 250 online courses that cover creative arts, entrepreneurship, branding and marketing, lifestyle and technology. The School of MakeOurMark, with courses in photography, illustration and tattooing, was launched in October 2013, and the School of Design went live the following month. Among the instructors who have taught courses are Seth Godin, founder of online marketing firm Yoyodyne, who teaches a class on entrepreneurship; DJ Young Guru, who leads a course on mixing and recording; and actor, writer and director James Franco, whose course focuses on screenwriting for short films. You can begin a Skillshare collaboration by taking an introductory course in a particular area to learn, for example, the fundamentals of Photoshop and expand your knowledge with a five-part, in-depth Photoshop series.

    *****************  THE HIGHEST RATED SKILLSHARE CLASS  *****************

Do you have a business idea or current business that you want to set up for success? 

If so, this class is for YOU. 

You will learn the proven 3-step process to set up your business for long-term success.

In fact, let's get going right now. (why wait!)

Here are 3 steps we'll talk through in detail.

Ready?

  1. Model success after those who have gone before you 

    You class project is to identify 5 aspects from successful businesses similar to yours that you want to model after. Then plug those aspects into what I call your Frankenbiz. Don't worry, I'll talk you through the entire process. 

  2. Add more value than anyone else  
  3. Be consistent with results & deliver unexpected joy 

That’s it. You create a business with that 3-step process and it can’t fail.

Well, almost.

There’s some other stuff we’ll talk about like:

  • Knowing your WHY 
  • A couple easy ways to test (this was my mistake on the first biz)
  • The 5 making mad-money questions you MUST ask yourself 
  • The scarcity advantage

You even get a step-by-step Biz Model Builder PDF to print and fill out as you go through the videos. Each video corresponds to a section in the Biz Model Builder. 

That way, by the end of the videos, you'll have your own NO FAIL biz model! 

Let’s make things happen for you. Questions about class? Ask away.

- Joe 

One more thing, I'm donating a portion of profits from this class to Pencils of Promise, a non-profit dedicated to bringing education to underserved communities.

I can't believe how informative a class that took be 2 days to finish could be. The insight from this class is honestly amazing and necessary. I also love that he provided materials and resources for the class. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who is thinking about taking it, totally worth it!

This was a pretty simple class that can realistically be completed in 1 to 2 sittings. A lot of the information is not necessarily original, but it's nice to have someone pushing you to actually do the work, which is always good. Additionally, Joe is super generous in offering a half-hour personal call with all students. He was really attentive and gave good suggestions on the call, and that alone is worth taking the class!

This class was a fantastic way to learn more and think hard about how to design my business and marketing plan! I'm completely new to running my own business, and this class walks you through the hard steps of defining your goals and conducting market research in a really accessible way. This class left me with a good sense of what my next steps should be to push my business forward, and also gave me a lot of big-picture ideas to think about for the future. Also, Joe was by far the most involved instructor I've had in any Skillshare class, and provided really useful and personalized feedback on my class project. Thanks so much for all the help and ideas!

Really great class. I like that he got down to business and told us the steps. I worked out my business plan and came up with some more efficient ideas. I have been in business for years and have never done a business plan. This helps me realize why I haven't succeeded at the level that I could have. It isn't talent, it is lack of preparation. This course is preparing me. I would recommend this class.

First, Joe is awesome. You should totally take this class. The step-by-step model in the course was invaluable to helping me think through some things that I was missing on my business idea. I also received a bonus call with Joe and it was wonderful to have a chance to verbalize some of the questions that I had as I put my plan together. I still have a lot of work to do before my idea comes to fruition, but Joe helped me gain focus and find direction.

This course has been a very helpful starting point to understand the essentials of setting up a business. By setting out a number of key questions and considerations, Joe helped me to really define and clarify my business strategy. I also had a follow up call and now feel inspired to take on the world. Thanks Joe!

Joe's class is very clear and easy to work on. His one on one meeting with you is priceless. It's important to get an "outside" look at your business model and Joe is very thoughtful and gives some great advice.

Just started the class but can see already from the No Fail Biz Model PDF that this will help me in my business! Also, got to speak with Joe on a 30 minute 1 on 1 coaching call and had a few 'Ah ha' moments as we discussed the day-to- day of running my design business. Joe pinpointed what I was struggling with and gave me great information to move ahead. Thanks Joe for all your help!

Truly one of the best courses on SkillShare. Joe goes into great detail and provides excellent guidance on getting a business plan in place - nothing abstract - just really easy to follow and perfectly clear on direction. Joe has provided me with the final piece of the puzzle in getting something moving for myself. This course is worth it's weight in gold! Thanks Joe.

Hi Joe! Great class. It was easy to get through in a couple of hours, while taking enough time to do the research and complete the No Fail Biz Playbook. I thought the playbook was excellent and I had some ah ha moments that will definitely influence how I run my business. Thanks so much!

This class has great information for someone who is just starting a new business. I am still in the beginning of the class but watched all the videos so that I know all the steps and I will go back and complete each step. I really like the added value of the 30 minute consult, he helps to personalize your plan.
