Utilizing both written and online course materials you will complete weekly modules independently. Then, your entire class will meet with our team of dynamic facilitators and business coaches one night each week to discuss the content and dive deeper. This is a powerful component of the course! Lastly, you will be invited to network and share in our private Facebook Group with other course attendees 24 hours a day/7 days a week.

By the end of the 8-week session you will be equipped with the tools necessary to overcome your fears, build community, create your personal brand, become a life-long learner, develop grit, tap into internal motivation, define personal and professional goals, manage limited resources, and truly understand the problems you are solving for others.
