Excellent Program! I learned a lot about everything from accounting to writing a business plan. I would highly recommend this class to anyone thinking about opening their own business or already own their own business. -Jeffery Matthews This class has informed me of more information then I was taught in college from my business administration degree. I am excited and thank the instructors.

This is an interesting program. There are a lot of topics discussed that are not taught in a classroom. I believe the class is very important to anybody that wants to start their own business. -Yaisa Mosquera
