He’s expanded on the topics covered in his book into a series of two online business courses taught on CreativeLive, which combined are called The Personal MBA. The two courses are The Personal MBA: Foundations and The Personal MBA: Getting Results. His first online business course teaches you the fundamentals of building your own business. It aims to help you master the building blocks of what it takes to create a strong foundation for a modern online business.
