Innovative Course for Aspiring Entrepreneurs
–This Class No Longer Available. Check back next semester–
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 class starting September 24!
Do you wonder what your teen’s future will be like? 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?!
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 lacks clarity, purpose, and meaning. Perhaps you do and you’re looking for a way to turn your dreams into reality…
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 18 and he needs to start getting serious about his future.
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.
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 20 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
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!
This course will help you and your teen 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 tutorial. You and/or your teens will end the class with a logo, Web banner, and marketing strategy.
There are two choices when it comes to purchasing the video course. You can choose the option with the Your Guidebook to Growing a Family Economy Manual and Workbook, or you can receive the PDF lessons weekly in the membership portal.
Live video classes are Tuesdays from 3-4 pm MST.

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!”Dr. Laurette Willis
“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. “Tammie Polk
“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.”Melissa
“Before others will believe in you and invest in you and your business, you need to believe and invest in yourself.”

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?
We don't have time
Does your teen 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!
What if I can't make the live videos?
No worries! I will make the replay available 24 hours after the live class.
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.
But I want to go faster!
You can purchase the video course with 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?
Grade based on effort, engagement, and following instructions of assignments.
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.
