A must for all aspiring and new entrepreneurs.
One of the hardest things starting out as an Entrepreneur is knowing what you need to do, and whether you are best positioned to do it yourself or invest in professional support. The BSI course cuts through the noise and provides the critical knowledge to establish your business, identify exactly what you need and provide you with the tools to succeed. The content and delivery of this course are so well done, I was able to complete in one day and get straight to work on my business. The best part is that you are learning from a pro. Gabby is not only super knowledgeable as a CPA, but she has also built her own business so she intimately understands the journey having successfully navigated for nearly two decades. I cannot recommend this course enough for anyone considering starting a business or taking their hobby or side hustle to the next level! — Lauryn
