I also think it was invaluable meeting other women business owners who faced similar challenges. I have remained close with my class members, and I think we will continue to call on each other in the future for support, encouragement, and ideas. Angelina  Sutcliffe, GF Squared

The program was very valuable to me.  I learned many concepts further in depth than I previously knew and the cash flow lessons we had were something I definitely needed and will be using in my business.  The class helped me prepare to open and to have confidence in my plan and its likelihood of success. – Stacy Foster, Mineral and Matter

 Just wanted to let you know that I am LOVING the Banking on Women course.  It has been inspiring and extremely helpful.  This course has really helped to keep me on track of starting my business this fall/winter.    I highly recommend this class.  It has been invaluable! –  Aubrey Leong
