Your best business education probably won’t come from a university. Instead, it’ll come from working closely with a business owner OR starting and growing a business of your own.

But what kind of business should you start?

According to Omar Zenhom from The $100 MBA Show, you should consider a service-based business when you’re just getting started.

Advantages include:

  • Low startup costs
  • Quick to validate
  • Easy to pivot if necessary
  • and more

Plus, Omar gives his take on why live courses are so hot right now.
