I really appreciated the business development modules.  The excercises and activities helped me obtain contracts with two schools and a non-profit organization the same week I became certified.

I became unemployed about 6 months ago and became certified to supplement my income.

Between the referrals I receive from The Etiquette Imperative Institute and the etiquette classes I provide for our local Park District, I'm doing this full time. 

My goal is to start a school within the next 12 months.  Thanks for giving me the tools to create a new career!
