* Module Notes
* 36 Biz Tips Delivered to your inbox 3 times a week for the 12 weeks
* A group follow up call one month after the program ends (May)

We will be covering a range of topics pertinent to business owners and their success, including visioning, identifying your leverage points, marketing strategy and budget, and much more.
