“I really have a lot to share with the ASPs/ASPMs about what has happened in the past year ever since I took your ASPM Course on Whidbey Island. Barb- it has been life changing for the positive... it has been so incredibly awesome- I have seen a lot of growth in my business, in both its structures and financially. I have personally grown so much in the past year... it was like taking your Master’s course was this diamond encrusted gold key that really helped provide me the focus I needed. I can share about how at year 6 I felt “stagnant” and seemed to get caught up in distraction. Since our Master’s course and refocusing, I have restructured my entire business and have seen the beginning of growth and stability. I am delivering solid Stagings with very good results.”
