How can you experience healthy growth and greater revenue?

The market is flooded with self-help online courses, bloated training platforms, and personality-driven hype. Some of the same platforms that will teach you to manage your money will also teach you to play the banjo.

But what do you and your people actually need to learn to create a stronger business? Business Made Simple is all about helping you master the key areas of business. If you and your team understand the basics of leadership, sales, marketing, product creation, overhead, and cash flow, your business will thrive.

The on-demand courses in the Business Made Simple platform will give you the fundamentals of uniting a team, telling customers about your products, winning more deals for your business, and creating a healthy culture. We’ll regularly release new courses to equip you for every aspect of your business. Soon, you’ll have a plan to communicate more effectively with your team, be more productive, negotiate better deals, and much more. Even better, the Business Made Simple platform is actually gamified. The more you and your team engage the platform, the more points you get. And the more points you get, the higher you move on the scoreboard. The whole system is designed to make learning fun and engaging. Don’t settle for information overload and overpriced trainings that don’t move the needle for your business. Get access to Business Made Simple and watch your business grow.



Below is a message from Michelle and how to apply for the grant! (must have been in business 1 year or more to qualify.)

Greetings from the Montana Department of Labor & Industry’s Incumbent Worker Training (IWT) program.

We have approximately 3 weeks remaining for the fiscal year, FY 21, IWT, funding opportunity. Access to the funding platform will end on close of business June 20th .

We will launch the new fiscal year, FY 22, on July 1st.

Please join me in encouraging local, eligible, businesses to apply for funding to help finish out this fiscal year. There is still ample funding available!

Key things to keep in mind:

  • Training must START before June 30, 2021.

  • Training can end up to a year from the start date, but cannot exceed a calendar year (364 days).

    • This means they can start in this fiscal year and end in the next fiscal year. The important thing is to have a start date before June 30th.

  • We request a 20-day lead on application submissions so timing is everything.

  • Refer folks to to view the guidelines and instructional videos.

  • Any training that starts July 1 or after, must be applied for in the next fiscal year funding cycle (FY22)

    • Applications may NOT be remitted in FY21 for FY22 – this is a common question.

      • Reassure prospective applicants the funding cycle is one of a few that is open nearly year-round so we recommend folks look for training with dates starting after July 21 (to ensure they stay in the recommended submission timeframe).

If you get questions you don’t know the answers to, please feel free to refer folks to me. Email is the easiest communication tool. I can arrange times to call applicants who need a little extra reassurance.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

I’m here to help,

Michelle Robinson
