Knowledge is Power. Woman's Compass Course
We had our final class in the inaugural Woman’s Compass Forum. The feedback and results were amazing and we heard over “KNOWLEDGE IS POWER”. The testimonials are here but I wanted to share more specific results and progress the women made. Learn from them and join us for the next Woman’s Compass Forum starting 9/8! Early bird fee until Aug 11! Classes were held at 12pm EST and participants said it was the best part of the week to learn more and expand knowledge.
