This course is very good value for money. be aware that it concentrates on the business side of the business, not the operational side. there are many useful tips here that you won’t find on the many YouTubes out there that focus mainly on operations.

This course was very informative and guiding. It cleans plenty of information to get a solid starting point even if you are unsure of what exactly you’d like to do.
