We are excited and honored to welcome you to your first day of the Authentic Business Course at The Equine Natural Movement School. As we work together via online classes and/or in-person training, we hope you find the value of being authentic and honest both with yourselves and in your business.
This Business Course is where you’re going to find your grateful audience and develop a thriving business, all while being completely authentic to the person you are. I’m sure you’ll be really, really happy about the results on the other end, and I hope you have a wonderful and enlightening time as we go through the next few months together.
The lessons are grouped together into three modules. Module 1 contains lessons 1-3, Module 2 contains lessons 4-6 and Module 3 contains lessons 7-10. While you work through the lessons, it is okay to move to the next module if you’ve completed all the lessons in the previous one and would like to pick up your pace.
These classes may task you a bit to stretch into new areas so hang onto your hat and let’s dive in.
Before you get started with the Modules below, let’s cover a little housekeeping to get you going.
1. WHAT WE’RE DOING
In each section we have exercises and written homework. Upload your homework directly to our Google Group by clicking on this Group Share Link. For instructions on HOW to get your Google Account all set up (you don’t need a gmail!), click Google Group Share Site Instructions for a quick tutorial. You can also email it directly to the group at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s what our topics and goals are —
2. LET ME PUT YOUR MIND AT EASE
If you are thinking this looks complicated, you are not alone. Over the years, many students have faced and mastered this learning curve. I have no expectations that any of you know this ahead of time so don’t worry, we’re on a business-building team and we’re all here to help and support each other succeeding at this.
There, feel better?
3. THE FIRST LESSON
Please read the 12 Principles of Authentic Promotion pdf before class. Consider printing it and keeping it in your binder.
The first lesson starts under Module 1 below!
If you would like to print any or all of the lesson information to refer back to offline, here is the link: (LINK to Lesson Printouts)
We also recommend keeping your homework in a 3-ring binder so you can refer back to these steps once you are starting your practice. You’ll be surprised how much use you will get out of these lessons in the real world.
4. COMPLETED HOMEWORK
Please complete your homework and drop it in the Group Shared Site. YOU DO NOT NEED A GMAIL ACCOUNT TO USE THIS SITE! Here is a quick tutorial on how to access/set up your Google Account for the Google Group site:
You can also check out this document Google Group Share Site Instructions. PDF files are preferred as homework uploads (super easy to do from any platform, just “save as pdf” or “export as pdf”, though you can also upload MS Word, Apple Pages and Google Docs.
Please use this format for the file:
Biz# _ Topic _ Your name (Example: Biz3_Client_BetsyRoss)
Our intention is that you complete the first three lessons before the start of MODULE TWO. Please send in your homework as you complete it. Please stay up to date so we don’t lose anyone along the way. If you need more time, email me we can work through it together. For most assignments you will have 2 weeks to complete them and upload them. That gives us a few days to go over everyone’s homework to provide you with really great feedback.
Sharing is good! Please share completed homework with fellow students via the Group Shared Site. Sometimes I will post responses to other students, too, so you can benefit from other students’ work. Smart students we have — it benefits everyone when we share homework.
We want this to be a seamless experience both online and in person with a lot of learning and growing. Please DO complete the homework assignments in order from lessons 1-10. If you want to work ahead, you are more than welcome to! Remember, post your homework to the Google Group Shared Site (Group Share Link). You can also email your documents directly to the site via email@example.com.
