The litmus test of the quality of a business course is what our students are saying. Here is a testimonial by Debbie Johnson, one of our students.
"Being a business owner or a solopreneur, many times you get so wrapped up in “doing the thing” that you lose sight of all the pieces of that puzzle. I’ve been in business for five years and I’m definitely guilty. Taking the Launch WF course from Steve has been such an eye opening experience! Steve has written and developed a system of systems that, if followed, gives you a complete and well rounded overview of how to build a solid business in all aspects. Steve does an excellent job of explaining how it all works together, as well as how to implement the program into your business. This program will make you a better leader, better marketer, better person. I would absolutely recommend this program to anyone who has an established business, is brand new in business, or thinking of starting a business. 10/10 can’t recommend strongly enough!"
