I am glad I found this class. Obviously I got new perspectives regarding managing my time, meetings, and stress when it comes to achieving my goals. The instructor was very knowledgeable and experienced. The interactive class was great. Most of the topics were covered well.

I really enjoyed the engagement, instructor and content - not necessarily in that order :) This class allowed for a lot of learning interaction, which never left me feeling bored or detached, which is what I would normally think of a web-based session. This session was definitely not that. Well with the money and time.

I was able to take away a number to things and apply them to my life. It was refreshing to see others struggling with the same; sometimes I wonder if I'm the only one, so it is comforting to know that I am not alone.
