Description: This program has two modules:
•Interior Decorating and Design
•Start Your Own Business

Interior design and decorating touches the lives of all of us in a very direct way we all live in interiors, and most of us work, study, shop, and travel inside buildings, vehicles, and other enclosures. At one time or another, almost everyone has been an interior designer or decorator on a limited scale, when choosing a painting color or a rug, when buying furniture, or when arranging furniture in a new living place. For these reasons, interior design and decorating is -- or should be -- of interest to everyone

This course helps you understand the basic principles of interior design and decorating to both improve your life, and set you in a new direction for your career!

After completing this course, you should be able to:

• Define history and principles of the interior design profession
• Identify the steps making up the design process
• Comprehend the use of various mediums in interior design
• Identify various technical issues that the interior designer must consider
• Comprehend project management and the business of interior design

Have you ever eaten a Mrs. Fields cookie? Used an Apple computer? Listened to a hip-hop CD? Entrepreneurs brought these products to your world. People that start their own businesses and work for themselves are called entrepreneurs. For an entrepreneur the sky is the limit as far as earnings are concerned. An entrepreneur is someone who's recognized an opportunity to start a business that other people may not have noticed -- and jumps at it skillfully. Entrepreneurs can shape and create an opportunity where others see little or nothing -- or see it too early or too late.

This “Start Your Own Business” class will help you create the business you want. Throughout this course you will be working on your business plan and creating a quick comprehensive overview of the elements you want in your new business.

After completing this course, you should be able to:

• Comprehend entrepreneurship and opportunity
• Identify the steps for developing a business plan and marketing strategy
• Identify methods for managing costs and forming a financing strategy
• Comprehend commercial law and the importance of contracts
• Identify strategies for growing your business and eventually selling it
