I am SO sad that our class is over! It was definitely one of the best investments of time and money that I have ever made.  You were a fabulous teacher - so professional and not one minute was wasted. 

And since taking your class, I've been getting such wonderful feedback from my clients.  I've seen a mixture of awe and respect in their faces. Seriously!  Some have even said that the resume I created for them made them feel empowered and full of potential as if I'd worked some magic on their psyche.  Isn't that great?

I can't thank you enough."
