Acquire Professional Skills Through Self-Exploration

"Your ideas were innovative and refreshing as the uniqueness caused me to remember various details about myself and my goals when conversating with people I meet and/or writing about myself. I recently had to use my resume in my autobiography for work.  It was a short bio and I was happy to have my information readily available and up to date.
If you are considering this class or working with Simon Vetter; the class is definitely worth taking! And results are sure to be impactful if working with him!"
