The LAB is a fantastic experience to learn about myself and my business since Iʻve been given the tools to grow. The most helpful aspects of having a coach is being kept accountable and being reminded of my overall goal. Chris is the BOMB!

Having encouragement at all times has been most helpful. As a result of participating in the Life and Biz program, the most significant change has been to discover about myself and fear that I have inside and that I can do this and it is never too late to start a business.

I believe a key strength of the Life and Biz by Design program is putting personal life and business together. The most significant change that took place is that I put my goals and action steps into paper and I started journaling and using technology in my biz. Thus far, I would describe the LAB as fun and informative!
