Online course learning is convenient and easy!

Like any profession, mastering the work to find the most efficient, easiest, and cost effective way is what leads to success. Our instructors are sharing from their years of first-hand experiences of building and running businesses.

School course registration is only open once a year and for a short period of time. Schools content is rolled out over six weeks of classes, see individual School courses for details. School courses include weekly Live Q&A sessions with the instructor during school.

You’ll love learning from online courses. It’s much like an in-person class but even better because you can watch at any time and for as many times as you want because you have forever access. It’s like purchasing a book, but instead of reaching for the book, reach for a device with internet access and log in to your course library to access your purchased courses.

Frequently Asked Questions


I scratched my head wondering “Why is this course so cheap while others are more than twice the expensive?” My intuition told me “Take the plunge!”
By far the BEST investment I have ever made as a new flower farmer.


I am a very visual person and feared that the videos would not hold my attention….I could not of been more wrong. I took a class last year, which was more than double the price. I assumed, since the other class was more expensive, it would have more information. Not the case….. this class is way more informative and I finally feel I knowledge to start a flower farm. 


Having lifetime access to your courses is absolutely a life saver! All winter and spring I have been referring back. I love that everything is so clearly labeled and easy to find and you can just pop back and find just what you need!
