“I got so much out of the course and it was worth every penny. Not only did it teach me how to start my business but it also gives you a lot of hands-on experience. Not to mention a lot of behind-the-scenes advice on your business and important forms to get your brand started. Since graduating and receiving my certificate, I started my event planning business and the most exciting part [is] I’m booking weddings and other events.”
