Free Vs. HomeGrown

Rather than "The Free MBA Project", perhaps "HomeGrown MBA". Free has certain connotations, free of effort, free of cost (opportunity costs to be precise), free of investment (your time).

No matter the name, the idea is what truly matters. The idea is simple: an unpretentious, and relevant business education with which you can do what you never thought you could.

The Greatest Barrier to Entry: Fear

Fear. We stay in jobs which make us miserable because we fear the unexplored. We fear doing the same job different ways because of what colleagues may say. We fear using our own ideas because they may not be good enough. Or we may expend the effort, and fail. But, may be if we try, we can learn and give our ideas the credence they deserve. And perhaps, make a living using our ideas. Rather than settling, doing something out of fear.
