Business Planning is an Art

In the Art of Planning, we are challenged to imagine our future, and the future of those who will benefit from our ideas, our research, our thoughtfulness, our passions, and pursuits…our business…

I invite you to consider, as we go through this course, the businesses you have loved, and those that you have sought to improve and consider how you would creatively and artfully plan your venture or set out to improve the plans and systems of others. Small Business Management is fun, creative, challenging, and ultimately, what you make it. Seek to learn from the lessons of others, and your own, take many notes, ask numerous ‘ridiculous’ questions. This is the way of creative learning, and it will take you to great places in work, life, and business.

Satisfied Clients are saying:

The Business Management Fundamentals course has given me a good understanding of the essential elements of a Strategic Plan, together with the detail and scope of content required. I will certainly be able to use this in my future business planning, and submission of Business Plans and Funding applications for loans etc. It will also feed into ongoing analysis of the success of the business!


Really enjoyed Tara's friendly and informal style; she gave great feedback, and lots of good examples to draw inspiration from.

Business Management Fundamentals is a very practical complement to the [Digital Design] program at NIC. I will be utilizing the information as I move forward with my venture. Five weeks is a skim, but Tara makes [Business and Strategic Planning} approachable. A feat in itself!


Thank you, Tara, for helping me make some decisions about my business and future!

As a pragmatic person this has helped with the Gordian knot that has been sitting in my brain for too long.
