Q & A

Duration: 4 hours

Running a micro/small business often requires that you become a jack-of-all-trades. It is therefore important to know early on the skills that you have and those that you will either have to learn or delegate to others (Small Business BC). The key business skills to consider include (1) business and strategic planning, (2) basic accounting, (3) financial management, (4) people management, (5) marketing, (6) sales, and (7) operations managements. The class will go over these fundamentals. Practically, all businesses operate around certain business cycles. A business cycle refers to various stages of growth or contractions within a business, industry, or economy. Certainly, real estate is no exception. Timing the real estate cycle is crucial to achieving big returns on investment. This class is to provide the overview of the impact of business cycles and financial market condition on the availability of funds for the real estate industry.
