MEET THE GRADUATES

"I personally took the course because we knew we needed to move to another level from where we have been these past 2 years in our business. The greatest help to me, is I am more confident in my numbers, when to make certain changes, delegating tasks and outsourcing when needed - knowledge in my overall business. Thank you again!” 
"I signed up on a whim, not knowing what to fully expect. I'm glad I did because this program, forced me to look at myself and my business differently. After having a failed restaurant, I am now ready to dig back in with the knowledge I gained from the Streetwise MBA.”
