IMPORTANT NOTE on CLOSED Classes: All the online classes and many of the on-campus classes close quickly. You should register ASAP if you are interested in any class. If you change your mind, please drop the class immediately so others can enroll. If the class is closed, consider the Wait List procedures; be aware of the rules and the limitations. Otherwise, consider these options: 1) register for another section if available; 2) register for another class; 3) consider registering in a future semester; 4) show up for the first day of an on-campus class and discuss with the instructor; or 5) forget about it and move on. The instructor will not intervene with the wait list procedure.

Please be aware that, once a class reaches maximum enrollment and “closes,” on or after the first day of the semester, even if “available” spaces appear on SURF due to drops, it is within the instructor's complete discretion on whether to add more students at that time. Drops after the first day are normal attrition and are factored in when setting the maximum enrollment. The class has started and important assignments and subject matter have already been covered. Please do not email the instructor. Thank you for your understanding.

Teaching Philosophy/Style and Class Management/Activities

I feel very fortunate to have the chance to teach Entrepreneurship at MiraCosta College. As an entrepreneur and small business owner, I have a great deal of passion for the subject and learn as much from my students as they learn from me. I like to tell my students that my class is a bit different than some of the others they may take, because in addition to teaching you about how to start a small business, I also consider myself your small business consultant while you are formulating your business concept. It gives me a lot of satisfaction to know that other businesses are starting because of my influence. This is absolutely, one of my goals as I teach the class: to help as many individuals as I can to start successful businesses. To this end, I am putting into place a new local non-profit that will help those in our inner cities, who may have limited financial resources, start businesses as well. The organization is called Urban Entrepreneurs and can be found online at http://www.urbanentrepreneurs.org/  

In terms of my teaching philosophy, I am informal and encourage a constant dialogue with my students, while class is in session. My classes are not simply lectures. They are interactive, conversational, lab like experiences where we all help each other learn. My passion and enthusiasm are contagious in the classroom. My students know I love this stuff! I have hundreds of stories and real life small business experiences that I share during every class. Students find me approachable, knowledgeable and someone who will go above and beyond to foster learning (but it a fun way). My students are engaged because they like how they feel in my classroom. I wouldn't have it any other way.
