Phoenix resident, Ashley, recently completed the course and said:  

"I was going through a career transition at the time and just starting to develop my own business. I had always worked for large companies and never myself, so there were many things that I didn't know about running a business that I needed to understand. BYOB came in just at the right time to assist me on my journey.  

I learnt so much in a short space of time; things like registering my business, where to access funding, apps to use for social media content, how to create a business plan, how the tax system works, pricing, promotion and sales techniques, advertising and so much more.”
