"The entrepreneur training was a great investment. We are entrepreneurs starting our own business and we wanted the inside scoop on what to do. The 10-week training program had a very knowledgeable instructor and guest speakers each week - attorneys, accountants, and loan officers - who gave us a great idea of what to expect and what to do to get our business started. We recommend the training for anyone who is thinking about starting a business."
