“The Founders' Readiness Express workshop was fantastic. The small group atmosphere was perfect for networking, expressing concerns, and asking questions. Jim Flowers is an excellent and knowledgeable speaker who was patient, kind, and encouraging to everyone who attended. The entire package has been so beneficial for our small start-up business and the cost-savings helped our small-to-nothing company budget. We would be lost without Jim, Christine, and their network of experts!”
