America’s economic slowdown continues, and more Americans are without work. Lower spending is threatening small businesses, even for Americans who are employed.

However, with some training, many people can not only survive but thrive in today’s tough economic environment.

Kevin Andrews, a Trump University student in real estate investing, knew that an economic downturn would result in lower housing prices.

Andrews, a Arizona-based businessman, learned quickly about a homeowner who was overwhelmed by medical bills, and had a high mortgage. Andrews purchased the house for enough money to pay off his debts and avoid foreclosure while still making a profit. Andrews sold his home for a 20% profit.

Andrews stated that homeowners should “be able to get out of a foreclosure and walk away from the sale with some money to pay off bills or have in their pocket.”

Others continue their education in order to enhance their job performance. John Hancock, a financial advisor based in Idaho, completed a course that taught him how to invest property. Hancock was able to evaluate properties and research markets. Hancock also learned how to contact agents and interview them.

“When John came to us, he was already a savvy financial planner,”Josef Katz is the Vice President of Trump University. After his course, “John knew exactly what to look for when he went to Boise to investigate the commercial real estate market and was able to orchestrate a financially sound deal.”

Trump University offers online business education. The university’s faculty includes graduates from top business schools and ex-executives of Fortune 500 companies. It offers programs in marketing and real estate as well as entrepreneurship.

Trump courses can be a time-saver for business people who want to improve their education. When navigating the market is difficult in a hard economy, continuing education can help you save big on your expenses while also maximizing your profits.
