Give Me The Green Stuff

Monday’s class will focus on financial issues — how can you make money with your journalistic skills and how does this financial ability link to your business plan.

Prior to Monday’s class be sure to:

  1. Check out Briggs Chapter 3: Make Your Money Plan
  2. Read Paul Graham’s Ramen Profitable post
  3. Review The Business Plan assignment

We’ll have a hands-on activity to help you get started with the financial decision-making process for your startup.

Deadline Changes & Homework Notes

From our last class session:

  • Homework 3: is not due until Monday, Sept. 30. Today,  you should be close to finalizing your research plan and your product sketch, while starting to reach out to your potential market.
  • Homework 4: all you need to have ready for Monday is an idea regarding who you would like to target for this task. Just basics — why this person, how does she/he connect to your interests in startups or being an entrepreneur. Don’t worry about the rest of the tasks listed in the assignment.
  • Tomorrow’s Blog: is about product naming. Bring to class ideas for your product’s name and we’ll do a short critique.

I will be around tomorrow if you need assistance or access to the Mac Lab. Otherwise, have a fabulous weekend and best of luck with your market research.
