The mission of the company is to deliver quality training at reasonable prices in the areas of project, IT, business, and strategic planning.
Project Management Professional (PMP) certification is a globally sought after certification, which requires 35 hours of training. Most classes are $2100-2400. The certification can raise a person's salary by over 35%. The test is very hard and passing it is tough, with a 60%pass rate. Blindside Solutions uses a licensed training product, which has been shown to increase the chances of passing to 80% or higher.
There are over 750,000 PMPs and the numbers are growing due to Global studies, which show that the success rate improves by 35% when a PMP is leading the project.
Blindsidesolutions is my dream of a better way of life for my family, which will allow me to spend more time with them. Having gotten my PMP in 2009 and with over 25 years of experience, I am the main PMP trainer and owner. My husband is in construction project management and my father in architectural project management. My years of volunteering with Project Management Institute (PMI) Baltimore as Vice President of Programs and now President, have allowed me to develop several friends. I've recently found that two of my friends are without work. One was forced retirement and the other had been looking for a while. Given the fact that I already have a full time job, I'm hoping to increase the number of courses that I offer to bring them on as trainers. Both have decades of experience and would be perfect for the job. To increase the number of classes, will take investment in deposits for locations and marketing, as well as additional instructor teaching packages. $15,000 will provide the needed increase of my $10,000, which will allow me to bring them on. This growth will also allow for faster profitability, as each class breaks even at 8 participants and (from research of other PMP Prep classes) an average of 15 is typical. My goal is to build this into multiple trainers, types of classes, and expand into consulting.
My degree in Business Administration with minor in Strategic and Entrepreneurial Management taught me good planning skills. According to plan, this small increase should set off a chain reaction of improvements, which will allow me to make this my full-time passion within 3-4 years instead of the current plan on 6-7 years.
I cannot say enough how much your support means to me. You are helping not just me, but the two friends, in need of work, and a community of people looking for quality training at more reasonable prices.
