Our History ... BusinessAcademy.com

A Woman-owned Business

West Coast Business Academy was started in San Francisco, California in 1997 by entrepreneur, marketing specialist and graphic designer Linda Chappo and her business partner, public speaker, personal coach and sales professional, Tom Marcoux. Together they made a commitment to help new entrepreneurs excel in sales and marketing for their small businesses.


Tom and Linda taught classes, wrote books, coached entrepreneurs and spoke at events around the United States. They shared relevant business information from their own personal experiences. Eventually, the domain name BusinessAcademy.com was acquired and the program went online. Linda coded a 50 page website, loaded it with entrepreneurial information, and BusinessAcademy.com became a pioneer in the internet realm.


BusinessAcademy.com has gone through many transitions over the years, but some things never change and BusinessAcademy.com still inspires and motivates entrepreneurs to educate themselves, be open-minded and stay courageous for their vision/dream. BusinessAcademy.com is currently located in Northern California, near San Francisco.

Our New Vision for 2020

We are happy to provide this online educational resource for small business owners and entrepreneurs who desire a less formal, yet still significant business education! You'll get the best and most up-to-date business education available through our own teaching staff and our affiliates (who assist us in offering a more expanded class schedule). A certificate is offered to students who complete our BusinessAcademy program.


We are currently reaching out to teachers who have real world business experience to teach online courses in the realm of their passion. Contact us for more information: businessacademy10@aol.com


We are also excited to announce that we are expanding our publishing program. We are currently accepting queries for business and personal development manuscripts under our book series title, PINNACLE OF SUCCESS Book Series. Contact us for more information: businessacademy10@aol.com


BusinessAcademy.com is on track to be one of the best educational resources on the internet. 


Thank you!
