Prepare for Your Billion Dollar Business by Taking the Course in Creating 2,000 Percent Solutions

Good morning, Billion Dollar Business Creators!

Are you feeling motivated this morning? I certainly hope so. I know that I am!

Many people ask me how they can afford the time and money to learn how to make their entrepreneurial efforts more successful.

My response is to suggest that they take a course in creating 2,000 percent solutions.

Let me suggest two 2,000 percent solutions to making that possible:

1. Pick some time-consuming activity which has enormous value to your customers and other stakeholders. Most people will begin to see ways to accomplish more and spend less time within ten hours.

2. Pursue the course when your mind is fresh and your energy is high. You won't need as much time if you do.

These 2,000 percent solutions have a great advantage for you: The time and resources each solution frees up will expand your capacity to pursue all of your opportunities.

Before taking on such a task, most people want more information. To make that easier, I've included below the course instructions and some comments made by those who have taken the course. I can also send you copies of papers that others have written for this course to show you what's possible.

Here are the directions:

I am delighted that you will be taking my course on creating 2,000 percent solutions.

If you will send me some background about yourself, I will be better able to work with you on the course.

You should plan to read and use both The 2,000 Percent Solution and The 2,000 Percent Solution Worb0ok in the course.

If you want to refer other people to this subject who might help you with the project, let them know about the free on-line resources.

They can read all but two chapters of The 2,000 Percent Solution by going to and clicking on the "excerpts" button on the left hand column. That will take them to the table of contents and start with the beginning material.

They can also order an inexpensive hard copy or an e-book download from

Excerpts from The 2,000 Percent Solution Workbook can be found at Inexpensive hard copies and e-books can also be ordered from

As you work on the course, keep a journal of how you spend your time each day and how much time you spend. You should submit the journal to me along with your paper. That will give me a flavor of any problems you have had.

Your paper should have two parts. In the first part, you should identify some stalls that have been or are a problem now for an organization you know well or for you personally. Next, identify how those stalls were overcome or could be overcome. This material is covered in the first part of The 2,000 Percent Solution.

In the second part of the paper, you should create your own 2,000 percent solution (a way to do something 20 times more effectively with the same or fewer resources or effort or get the same results in 1/20 the time or effort). When you are ready to pick the area you want to work on, e-mail me and tell me about it and I will give you further suggestions. This part of the paper relates to the 8 step process in part two of The 2,000 Percent Solution. You should discuss how each part of the 8 step process applies to your development of a 2,000 percent solution and explain why your solution is or will become a 2,000 percent solution.

If you pick some issue that's strategic to you or an organization, you will get more benefit than if you pick some trivial area.

Don't worry about page limits. Most people need to write more words than they expect. I'm happy to review longer papers.

I will also be glad to review drafts of your paper and give you suggestions as you go.

When you are satisfied with the paper, send it to me for final comments and review.

If you have any questions as you go, please let me know.

Here are some descriptions of experiences that others have had with the course:

“Professor Donald Mitchell brought me to a whole new world. I used the course based on The 2,000 Percent Solution and The 2,000 Percent Solution Workbook to establish a strikingly promising business strategy for my company, which other business courses failed to help me provide. Now I am doubling my company’s business and profit very rapidly and realizing my dream: Exponential Business Success.”

–Hiroshi Fukushi

President, FD Green Co., Ltd., Thailand; Managing Director, AET Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Thailand; and Director, Ajinomoto Co. Ltd., Thailand

“This course obliterated my complacency. Our business has turned the corner due to application of the 2,000 percent solution principle. No more 6% interest on medium risk financial investments – 40% in 9 months, an annualized 755% improvement. The blinkers have gone.”

–William Kempen

Partner, Impact Human Resources, South Africa

“Donald Mitchell’s on-line tutorial alerted me to company stalls that must be avoided. It was very instructive to learn how not to do something. The creation of a 2,000 percent solution showed me that there are always better, cheaper and more effective ways to organize any business activity.”

–Neil R. McGrath

CEO, Application Developers Pty. Ltd., Australia

The ‘Exponential Business Success’ course is quite ideal for small entrepreneurs and those working for reputable organisations to create solutions to the many snags that retard an enterprise’s exponential growth. The course is a powerful tool for those who are keen to bring significant change in their personal lives and organizations they work for.

“I am one of many students who have benefited greatly from this course. I am not only an effective member of my family and the organisation I work for but a visionary affiliate of my society as well.

“The author of the books The 2,000 Percent Solution and The 2,000 Percent Solution Workbook, Professor Donald Mitchell uses both resources to mentor his students in a more practical way. The first book takes the learner through stalls, stall busters commonly found in any organisation and the eight steps towards creating a valuable business solution … while The 2,000 Percent Solution Workbook guides the learner through a series of practical applications of the 2,000 Percent Solution process You do not need to go to class for the course is offered on-line.”

–Jacob V. Yesaya

Senior Lecturer in Vocational Education, Department of Vocational Education and Training, Botswana

“This course enabled me to explore comprehensively all aspects of my organisation, ranging from the traditions we follow blindly, the complacency which had set in the way we serve our customers, the unnecessary bureaucracy and the blind spots in me and in my organization. This course helped me immensely in learning and acquiring expertise and know-how on how to manage and discipline my thinking, to be more creative, and build my self-confidence in my ability to make a big positive difference in other peoples’ lives.”

–Elijah Chingosho

Associate Professor, Rushmore University, Africa

“Under the wonderful guidance of my advisor, Professor Donald Mitchell, I developed goals, new habits and skills to achieve professional as well as personal success to lead a happy life.”

–Burra Ramulu

Supervisor, SAFCO-3, Saudi Arabia

“When our effectiveness suffers because of stalled mind-sets, when our productivity is low, because we are stuck in bad habits that disfavour our projects, 2,000 percent solutions are effective answers. In his courses, Donald Mitchell shows students how to identify stalls and break through them by creating 2,000 percent solutions. I have found this idea of creating stall busters that supply exponential success highly useful in my professional and private life. Once people identify the main problems and create the ‘right’ solution to tackle them, not only do you solve the problem that you had in the first place, but you might also find yourself solving problems that you didn’t think that you even had and get results that you never even thought you could achieve. Donald Mitchell’s courses on the 2,000 percent solution are a highly beneficial lesson to any students who want to get things right and reach goals beyond their expectations.”

–Oliver Haggenmuller

Executive, Switzerland

“I found Don Mitchell’s 8-step process an excellent practical tool to demolish all hindering forces and barriers in my work. The 2,000 Percent Solution gave me insight to look far beyond the limitations of my present reality. His feedback was very precise in a way that pinpointed the key areas where the performance of my business could be dramatically improved.”

–Roy Rissanen

MBA, Missionary Pilot, Africa

"The 2,000 Percent Solution course under the guidance and the kindness of author Professor Donald Mitchell has been a delightful experience. Easy and fun, I studied chapter after chapter with facility. The logical process and the selected examples make this book accessible to everyone."

- Alain Pierre Mignon

Executive, Indonesia
