Recent student feedback

5.0 stars Juana is a very good and passionate teacher. I enjoyed her personalization of the class and the fact that the class was more interactive and not just a rehearsed reading of a PowerPoint presentation. I was expecting this to be more "work" related but it turned out to be more "life" related and I feel that will be more helpful in the long run. I will be looking into other programs that she teaches as well. Thank you! Scott Diussa

The class showed how we can be more productive both in our work and private life by setting short and long term goals and following, action plan, and rewarding ourselves for attaining goals.Jeff McGill
