  • Headshot of Omolara Odupitan

    Being someone who has an existing business, I actually needed a business plan and this course gave me the push I needed. I have been putting it off because I wasn’t quite sure how to go about making one. The instructions and layout/guideline handout was extremely helpful. I now know what to look out for when it comes to things in the business industry that I had no idea about before.”
