What else can I say - Thank You for the support we get from my Vendor Buddies and the nearly $2000 in door prizes we gave away last week. WOW it sure adds to the excitement and is a real kick for the class. I said it during the class, and I'll say it again - I love recommending these products and services from the vendors that support the class. These are the same vendors that I use in my own business and have helped me become successful in this profession over the years. My relationship with many of them spans several years. I am always happy to recommend and promote the best of the best.
My thanks to:
