Who has it worked for?

I truly have learned a lot from your Introduction. As you know, these teachings are absolutely crucial to someone involved in any aspect of book publishing. On a personal note, thank you for validating me as a human being every step of the way. Your demeanor, the sailor-esque portions of your vocabulary, and some of your stated opinions about life in general, are relatable and hilarious. Thank you for the opportunity to take your introductory class!
Bessie S., Intro Student
Thank God for this course! The final business lectures were a great reminder that I’ve come a long way and I can hold my head up high when I talk to prospects because I know I have the skills. I CAN deliver a great service that people should pay for.
