Strategic Thinking for Entrepreneurs

This course is a webinar replay where Shane Melaugh (CEO and co-founder of Thrive Themes) shares his favorite mental tools to make you a better entrepreneurial strategist.   Think about all the decisions you have to make, as an entrepreneur...   You have to constantly prioritize and allocate resources (whether that's time, money or manpower).   You have to objectively evaluate your market, your business ideas, and your marketing strategies.   In fact, the success of your business hinges on your ability to make good decisions.   That's what strategic thinking is all about. It's about going beyond gut feelings or winging it. It's about avoiding the HiPPO problem and having a solid system that increases your chances of making the right call.   That's what you'll learn in this course.
