Starting her business in Spring 2020
Taryn Kett learned about Contact North | Contact Nord when she attended a free seminar by Huron County Economic Development for starting your own business. Contact North | Contact Nord staff also helped attendees explore online programs and courses for new entrepreneurs.
“It’s an awesome program,” exclaims Taryn. “A lot of different learning options.” Contact North | Contact Nord staff helped her register with LinkedIn Learning and created a playlist of 20 courses in Becoming a Small Business Owner. As she completed courses, she discovered new courses to add to her playlist. She found another 40 courses that interested her.
“I take notes while I am watching and sometimes, I take a screenshot,” she explains. She is comfortable with the discipline required to succeed with online learning since she completed her high school diploma through correspondence.
“Everything has been great, super easy to learn and Contact North | Contact Nord staff check in on me regularly to see how I am doing,” she shares.
Taryn completed the first 10 courses and plans to apply for a business start-up grant in the spring and continue taking online courses with LinkedIn Learning.
