All due respect, Reliable, but taking some select business courses CAN be a game changer for running a business. Enrolling at a local community college gives you the option of choosing which classes you take. Micro/Macro economics is not one of them.... Business Mgt, Sales, or even Marketing are all good areas to gain some knowledge for running your business.
With knowledge comes power. And in this case, the power to make educated decisions that can only help you grow your business.
