Better Business Systems is a new school that is being formed and will be a 501(c)3 nonprofit. It addresses the issues that many businesses have. Dun & Bradstreet recently reported that approximately 90 percent of businesses fail as a result of lack of knowledge.
The school is dedicated to helping owners understand more about their business and what actions can be taken to help the business succeed.
“All of the instructors are working professionals, not your typical professors. Our lessons are based on experience in the real world,” says Eric when asked about the teaching experience. “All of the instructors that we have at the school have something unique to bring to the table and that is why we already have a number of business owners interested in attending the school.”
Eric Gilbert is one of the primary teachers for the new school. He has been in the marketing and business management industry for more than 20 years and has been self-employed as well as worked with franchises and large corporations. “I believe that the business process is more about understanding people as well as their needs, not about closing techniques,”
The new school is designed to show business owners and managers how to function in today’s world. The courses speak about profits, operations, and what needs to be done to help a business flourish. Better Business Systems is a school that provides hands-on guidance and education to so that businesses can learn how to start-up with greater success and how to fix a business that is already showing signs of struggle.
“If I can learn how to turn my business around,” says a restaurant owner in Sarasota, “this will be the best education I have ever gotten.”
The school has opened its doors to improve the small business economy and the local economy throughout the Tampa Bay community. Students can enroll quickly and courses are taught at the Palmetto location.
