I have been working in the field of entrepreneurial mindset development for 20 years and this is the first time that I feel like I’ve come home – I’ve found a team of like-minded people who are walking their talk and who have taken the time and effort to research, define and develop accessible materials and processes that can be easily utilized by others.
