    Student Workbooks III

    Once your target audience views the enticing TREP$ Kickoff DVD, you’ll see firsthand the incredible level of interest that is generated.  You’ll need to purchase a TREP$ Student Workbook for each participant to have all of the resources they need to follow along in the Workshops and to be well-informed as they start their businesses.  Reasonably priced at $12 per book, the TREP$ Student Workbook is a critical component, and therefore REQUIRED for each participant each year to successfully implement the program.

    • includes basic business forms like a Loan Agreement, Partnership Agreement, Expense Worksheet, and Business Plan — useful tools to guide ‘treps from vision to venture; 
    • provides each participant with a take-home resource that they can use during TREP$ and long after, as they choose to continue their business or explore other entrepreneurial opportunities!
