Short (<5 min) tutorials with actionable adviceCons:
Not enough videos yet - looking forward to more!
I've taken plenty of courses online on Udemy, Lynda etc but they usually take quite some time. I like this better. I don't want to spend hours learning how to do my taxes... I'd rather it take 5 minutes and go back to topics I enjoy more.Eva Reder has used this product for one week.
Info AND tools for creating proposals, contracts, managing cashflow, healthcare, taxes, and more. Takes about 30 min to watch everything.Cons:
None– it's free. If you're self employed or freelancing on the side while you bootstrap your startup... you'll want to check this out.
This looks like the start to an even bigger project of free training and resources for freelancers. Excited to see how it evolves moving forward.Juan Felipe Campos has used this product for one day.
Quick and easy to useCons:
Designed for Americans, no mobile app
I like it overall. However, it does seem to be designed for Americans only, especially in terms of healthcare, tax and legal videos. Also it appears there is an ulterior motive which is to promote partner company's brands, that's fine if they are relevant to me as "international".Ian has used this product for one day.
all of it is relevant for business ownersCons:
can't think of any, looking forward to more info
I've been using fiverr in general as a business owner so the expansion in product offerings to help educate me and automate more processes is definitely helpful!Eric Y Chen has used this product for one day.
Has the potential to be helpful in the futureCons:
Overly simplified videos which feel more like advertisments for third party services
Rather than teach users/startups, the courses feel like short advertisements aimed at promoting third-party premium services. This feels like the freemium version of teaching (enticing with a free hook and upselling the service) rather than teaching how to actually do something yourself. As a startup, saving costs is always more important than saving time, so pitching premium services rather than premium information to handle the tasks of a startup seems counter-intuitive.Adam Ratcliffe has used this product for one day.
Learn new skills at your own paceCons:
The tutorials are not longer
I'm loving this platform! Knowledge, refreshing a new skill or a quick tutorial is what the internet is all about for us entrepreneurs! I just wish they were a little longer with less "fluff".Kristin Riddle has used this product for one day.
