Participating in Saddleback’s Entrepreneurship Program gave us the backbone and confidence to step away from our 9-5 jobs to run Kreativ Alchemy full-time. In order to confidently make the leap into running our own business, we needed a foundation to organize our ideas, finances, and the steps to make it happen. We couldn’t have done that without Dr. Fredrickson and this program to drive us in the right direction.

Saddleback College helped me improve my existing business. I was already a restaurant owner before coming to the Entrepreneurship program. I decided to go back to school because even though I already had a business, I had no structure and my business was struggling. The program helped me realize opportunities that I did not see before. I was able to capitalize and build a catering concept from my existing business. Scott challenged us to work within our realistic means, expand our thinking and guide us in the right direction.

The Entrepreneurship Program was key to helping me successfully launch my business. Dr. Fredrickson asked the big question of what problem or need my business was trying to solve or fill for people. Without a problem or need, there is no business. He also taught how to scale down our huge business ideas and make them realistic and achievable. Dr. Fredrickson teaches from a vast amount of his own business experience and knowledge, and he does it with humor, making a serious and difficult class fun and approachable. I'm so grateful to the Entrepreneurship for giving me the essential tools to make my business a success.

Saddleback Entrepreneurship program offered me a new perspective to see the world; to see opportunities and expand my horizon. I learned running a creative design business is more than just offering a good service, it's about finding problems that require creative solutions, narrow my focus on the right type of service and product and offer those solutions and products to the right audience.

The Entrepreneurship class with Dr. Fredrickson changed everything for business for me. He tackled the big scary concepts that made starting a business sound too complicated. He explained concepts such as starting an LLC, or getting a name trademarked in ways that made it very easy to comprehend, and gave us the confidence to start a business. His knowledge, incredible personality and most importantly his experience having businesses was fantastic and I would recommend anyone that has any sort of interest in business to take his class.

The Entrepreneur Program at Saddleback College is phenomenal to say the least. When it comes to starting a new business it can feel like an impossible task but with Dr. Fredrickson’s class it is broken down into multiple small parts that you can accomplish. Dr. Fred guided me through several difficult hurdles as well as put me in contact with a few mentors to help me further along my journey. Really grateful for all the course has done for me.
