    It was great. Nick & Don were great. They were very helpful, good information, patient. I was a little concerned that the class would be too big but they handled it really well. I was able to get all my questioned answered and learned a lot.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
