Basic Real Estate Investing (REA510)

Learn how to use real estate investing to build personal wealth. Explore techniques for locating bargain properties and motivated sellers, acquiring property with creative financing, locating sources of cash, fixing up properties, handling tenants and selling properties.

Starting an Import/Export Business (SBA960)

In today’s economy, an import/export business could be your ideal choice for a small business. A small company can profitably sell abroad what it markets, and goods imported from overseas can be offered for sale in the U.S. for a substantial markup. Unlike manufacturing or a storefront, an import/export business offers an inexpensive entry into owning your own business. There may even be the advantage of international travel. Students will determine what products to offer, learn where to locate suppliers and outlets for their product, and will be introduced to government regulations concerning import/export.

Virtual Assistant Online Business (SBA961)

Learn how to establish and successfully grow a virtual assistant business including how to locate customers, set fees and develop client contracts. A virtual assistant works from his/her own home offering administrative support services to other companies over the Internet. Virtual assistants can make from $25-$50 per hour performing tasks such as word processing, database management, desktop publishing, and email services. Moreover, because virtual assistants work from their homes, for customers they often never meet, they do not need to be located in the same city or even the same state.
