Testimonials

“The best part about WSBP is empowerment. The constant reminder of all the possibilities that exist for all of us and that we can and should take the time to figure out what our priorities are and how to make it happen."

 

Start Up Student

“I didn’t know how to make a budget or work with the small amount of money I had. It’s such an emotional thing, and a terrifying feeling. There is a way out. There’s long-term hope."

"The biggest take away for me was to have the confidence to just do it.  My husband and I are currently scheming another endeavor and I am able to transfer the skills I learned thru WSBP to roll with the beginnings of a bigger venture.  That was my goal and it arrived sooner than I could have expected.  I am now comfortable with the uncertainty and fluidity that comes with the beginning stages of creating a business, which I hadn't been before WSBP. "

 

Start Up Student

“With your professional knowledge, support and wisdom--I was able to pull a dream together--into a business that I pray takes off and I can not wait to do full time!"

 

Start Up Student

"I wanted to thank you so much for the course and particularly for the exercise where we numerically crosswalked our values with our different business ideas inspired by our talents and strengths.  It was an incredibly illuminating activity for me."
