"Lots of great information for a minimal investment. The professors find numerous ways to relate the material to your specific industry." 
-MARK JOHNSON, FARM BUREAU FINANCIAL SERVICES, EL DORADO

 

"I highly recommend this class because of the scope of information, the quality and knowledge of the presenters and the networking opportunity with other class members. The classes spur a reaction to think outside the box and look at your business analytically instead of emotionally."  
-WANDA WALDECK, GROUSE VALLEY GRILL, DEXTER

 

"This is a game changing opportunity if you are motivated to apply the thoughts and curriculum that is taught. If you are a business person with experience or thinking of starting a business, this class will make you better." 
-CHAD GILLILAND, NEXT TO NATURE FARM, LEAVENWORTH
