Non-Profit Professional

The challenges of many non-profit organizations are significant even as they try to continue to provide much-needed services to their communities. Funding and lack of resources are two of the culprits in creating the challenges. Our courses focus on the development, sustainability, fiscal viability, fundraising, and growth of non-profit organizations, professionals, and directors.


Writing can be rewarding and therapeutic, but if the intention is to write to publish, developing a solidly written piece of literature is essential. Our courses are designed to enhance the skillsets of aspiring writers of novels.

Small Business/ Entrepreneurs

Our Business and Entrepreneurship courses are designed for small businesses of all sizes, including solopreneurs, home-based, and the gig culture entrepreneur. Our courses focus on building a solid business model, customer retention, brand awareness, and social media presence.


Correctly preparing a manuscript for publishing is an essential aspect of being a publisher. If the process is not conducted thoroughly, the finished product could be disappointing for you (the publisher) and the author. Our courses provide the essential components and steps needed to turn a completed manuscript into a published book.
