Innovative Course for Aspiring Entrepreneurs
Have you or teen been wanting to start a business? Are your children budding entrepreneurs? Would you like to learn, too? Then join our new online course available now!
Are You worried….
Do you wonder what your teen’s future will be like? Do you have a gap year student that needs some direction? Perhaps a college student or young adult considering career options… Are they struggling to answer the question, “What do I want to be when I grow up?” Are you worried that your children might not be successful because they are not able to get a job or because let’s face it, we live in a scary world?! Do you feel in these uncertain times that your child and your family will not make it?
Maybe your child has wanted to start a business and they don’t know how and you have no idea how to start teaching them. Maybe YOU”RE the one who wants to start a business.
Perhaps your teen or young adult child lacks clarity, purpose, and meaning. Perhaps you do and you’re looking for a way to turn your dreams into reality… especially in these days where so many are losing jobs or forced to work remotely.
Maybe you have a college student or a young adult who lacks direction or is passionate about becoming an entrepreneur but doesn’t know how to get started. You may even have a gap year student. This is the perfect program for them! Or the special needs youth who has a talent and amazing skill and just needs to know how to channel that into a life-sustaining career.
I hear you and you don’t have to be in this situation!
It’s no easy task being a homeschool mother, that’s for sure. I’m right there with you as my son is 21 and he needs to start getting serious about his future. As a matter of fact, he took this course I’m about to share with you and he’s now my apprentice!
It’s because of him that I started my own business long ago and it’s because of him that I am passionate about helping families discover their passions and callings so that they can create wildly successful businesses.
I believe strongly that God has gifted each person with unique abilities. A job and/or college is not necessarily a path for everyone. That’s why becoming an entrepreneur is an important idea to consider. And it’s even more important in these times when life is so uncertain and so many families are losing jobs. Now is the time to learn how to work at home!
Whether you have a teen, a gap year student, college student, young adult–or even YOU as parents want to transition to full-time self-employment, this course is for ALL of you!
Hi I am….
Dana Susan Beasley and I am a homeschooling mom and entrepreneur. I am passionate about helping homeschooling families and teens create their own businesses based on their passions and callings. A graphic designer for over 25 years, I have expertise in branding, digital marketing, and publishing. I am the owner of AngelArts and one of our functions is to publish homeschooling curriculum, offer courses, and run enrichment programs. I am also the author of entrepreneurial curriculum called Your Guidebook to Growing a Family Economy.
Introducing the Family Economy Video Course: Your Business Building Success BluePrint
So I wanted a way to bring excitement to the homeschooling community about entrepreneurialism. I wanted to “come out from behind the curtain” and give some direct inspiration to families. Frankly, I want my son to take this course so he is inspired to take the next step! And he has made so much progress that now he’s my apprentice and he’s completed his first design job!
This course will help you and your teen and indeed your whole family as aspiring entrepreneurs discover your why, identify your passions and callings, get a business concept, and create a name. Semester I thoroughly addresses marketing and branding fundamentals. The video course will also guide you through the best software (including free options) that will help build a brand. The second semester advanced class will continue the process, teaching graphic design fundamentals including a graphic design tutorial. You and/or your teens will end the class with a logo, Web banner, and marketing strategy.
And the course is self-paced and delivered in a way that you will not be overwhelmed. You can fit it into your schedule. If you want to go deeper, you can do that, too! I will explain that later if you decide to join me on this journey.
This class includes three components: 1) Online video on demand, 2) Audio options, and 3) PDF Lessons and Worksheets with assignments.
It also includes several bonuses, including semi-weekly Q&A sessions and an encouragement group.

What People Are Saying
“[The Family Economy Curriculum] is chock-full of powerful ideas based on sound financial and marketing principles that your family can follow step-by-step to experience success, make a mark, AND leave a legacy. You’d be wise to take advantage of this rich resource!”
“What I like about this resource is that it is broken down into realistic, manageable, and reasonably attainable steps that anyone can follow. I also like how much Dana shows how she’s used the principles of entrepreneurship that she’s teaching in her own life. “
“My fifteen-year-old daughter Allie has a little applique business making shirts for kids and babies. She started making them for her little sister Kate (pictured below) when she was born, and it has grown from there. Last year she took Mrs. Beasley’s Internet Entrepreneurship class on the Schoolhouse Teachers website. We both learned a lot! She has now set up an Etsy shop.”
“Before others will believe in you and invest in you and your business, you need to believe and invest in yourself.”
Dana Susan Beasley, Creator of Family Economy Video Course and Curriculum
Dana has a great business sense and writes for her audience. She knows her topic and covers questions and concerns that every business owner and self-schooling parent has. Her insight is brilliant and her support is priceless. I’ve used many of her products and highly recommend her for your business needs or self-schooling products. I’m blessed to know her and have found her for my business.
This All Sounds Great But…
I can't afford it
Can you afford a high college bill where your student is not able to decide what they want to do in life? What if they could discover their passions and callings, learning how to run a profitable business BEFORE they even get to college? Would that be worth the investment? Comparable programs cost hundreds and thousands of dollars. This course will SAVE you and your student money in the long run.
We don't have time
Does your teen, college student, gap year student, or even YOU have two hours per week? If your student is to have a viable future, isn’t it worth prioritizing? After all, you get out what you put in. Maybe NOW is the time to dig in!
And also, this course is designed to fit into your busy life! If starting a business is overwhelming, you will have plenty of time to get it done! Work at your own pace. If you want to go into a deeper dive and even work ahead in the course, you can also do that buy purchasing one of the curriculum options, either digital books or physical books.
What if I can't make the live videos?
These videos are available only ON DEMAND every other week so you can schedule the videos anytime you like. The videos take 15 to one hour to watch. You can get started immediately with the first two modules.
How do I credit this toward school?
You can count this as an elective and economic class. Usually 125 hours counts as a half credit. Track their hours spent and it will count toward the subject. You can put as much or little time into it as you want to. The course also has quizzes so that can count as part of the grade. At the end of the course, you will get a certificate of completion.
But I want to go faster!
You can also purchase the curriculum and dive even deeper, going as fast or slow as you want. The curriculum includes the tutorial and lessons on how to create a design strategy, brand strategy, logo, and Web banner.
How do I grade?
You can grade based on effort, engagement, and following instructions of assignments, as well as the quizzes in the course.
I have a special needs student
Special needs students have talents, too! Everyone does! Maybe your student is unable to get a job, but they probably have a talent or gift, even if it is hidden. This course will help uncover it so they can figure out how to turn their passions into a profitable business that will sustain them for years to come.
My student has a hard time writing
That’s ok. My son has dysgraphia and it’s hard for him to process, so I get it. You can be the scribe. That’s perfectly fine.
What if it doesn't work for us?
There is a 30 day trial period so if you are not thrilled with the program, you are free to cancel anytime before that. But we think you will love it so why not give it a shot? What do you have to lose?
