WHY BPD ASSOCIATES CREATED THE ENTREPRENEURS BUSINESS BUILDER

We met many entrepreneurs who thought they were in business, but instead of achieving their version of freedom, were really struggling and several failing!

One of the main reasons for this is that they were selling a product or service and thought they were running a business and not truly understanding the difference!

So we decided to design a programme that would not only give them the blueprint for a profitable business, but also the knowledge, tools, support and access to the expertise and resources needed to create a sustainable business.

And that is when the Entrepreneurs Business Builder Programme (EBB) was born!!!

Our 4-month self-paced online learning programme assists women entrepreneurs in business for 2 years or more to know what it takes to run a successful business.

This programme is all about IMPLEMENTATION!
