Now more than ever, building your own family economy is extremely important. In this age of uncertainty, wouldn’t it be worth the investment to help your children (and you!) learn how to start a small business that will enable them to work from home?

The Family Economy Video Course Semester I is an 8-week video course with author and entrepreneur Dana Susan Beasley. Using her curriculum, Your Guidebook to Growing Your Family Economy, students will begin their journey of starting their own businesses.

This course includes weekly PDF lessons as well as videos that will be released lesson by lesson each week. Be sure to go to the Materials tab and download your digital manual and workbook of the Your Guidebook to Growing a Family Economy.

Be sure to download the workbook as it is interactive. You can type directly in the document with a software program such as Adobe Acrobat. But it has to be downloaded first.

The course includes quizzes and tests. A certificate will be given at the end of the semester if 80% of the questions are correct.

Are you an adult wanting to earn a certification in the Family Economy system so you have a license to teach it? Stay tuned for a special class! As well as my announcement of an affiliate program I’m creating.

There will be a reading assignment in the digital books at the end of each lesson and the quiz will have questions from there so students need to study.

What’s the advantage of the digital books? They include much more detail and are more in-depth and are far more comprehensive. You as their teacher can use the extra time to read for credit hours and there are expanded study possibilities that can count, too. You can use the digital books for extra credit or however you decide to grade in addition to the quizzes in this Learning Management System. The quizzes will include material from the digital books.

There is a suggested 1-2 hours of homework per module for students to complete. Each week there will also be a PDF worksheet with the lesson.

I have no objection if you have multiple family members who want to take the course and use both the PDF worksheet and the digital workbook. But only one student can go through this Learning Management System (LMS) and take the quizzes as well as use the digital workbook. You may make multiple copies of the digital workbook for each family member.

If you want more family members to be users, then you can pay an additional $10 each. I will add your family members as users to the program. Just email me at and you can pay me via PayPal at I will need a username and email for each registration.
