    The course has a sobering effect on how a business should be run vs how we currently run it. i have always known that for my business to grow , i have to work outside the business. taking the course confirmed why we are stagnant in our growth. i would recommend the course to any business leader who is looking to turnaround their business and improve on the leadership skills. the material is so useful because you can save it to later reflect with your team. for the first time in years of entrepreneurship i must admit i felt blank even on the most obvious questions because the perspective has completely changed and the outlook much better after taking the lessons. its a 5/5 for me.

    I have learned fundamentals of how to navigate the existing business that has the potential to grow. I appreciate the tools provided, particularly the Business Growth Plan, especially because I will be able to utilise and share them freely. They will be my compass and motivator as I pursue the entrepreneurship journey. I appreciate this opportunity and I am looking forward to learning further.

    This was very helpful for me, so much that I recommended to other women.

    It helped me clarify my expansion plans to see that my third option should actually be the first, as rhe business is not ready for option one yet. I was able to also see how I could grow that area of my business without a huge capital requirement, for now.

    I totally recommend.

    The course is really organized and it gives you everything that you need, questions that you need to think about when it comes to your business oppportunity and its feasibility. I like the exercises as it helps you really think about your own business and make you realize a lot of things about what you do and the direction that you want to go.

    A very interesting and enlightening course. I felt very fulfilled when I finished this course. It is so relevant to a business owner and should be a course that should be repeated as often as possible to instil a culture of continuous review to ensure one is in line with the changing times in most of the industries.

    This so far has been a great course. I have learned and shifted my mindset with the first course. This has helped me more than working with some mentors did! I realized what I've been looking for in order to shift my business. I am truly happy that I stared this journey now. I believe it will definitely help my business grow.

The additional reports generated at the end of the course is also a good yardstick to see where my business needs to improve and where it is confident at.
