I would recommend all the classes to others. ‘I Gave You Money, Now What’ was very hands-on with local examples and discussion.

I felt I got quite a bit out of the 2-hour class [‘What Funders Want to See] and the exercise really made me think.

-Terri in Petersburg, AK

Thank you for all you did for us, Cynthia! It was really helpful for us to sit down and really detail out what we want for our business and in what direction we want to take things. You were very good at listening to our thoughts and feelings and then rephrasing it into a concrete plan with specific direction. You are a great listener, and obviously thoughtfully considered all that we had to say and used your skills to help us create a sustainable plan for our small, growing business. Your advice will help our small business achieve economic success while still holding true to our values and ideals. We’d recommend a session with you to any small business or non-profit organization as a great way to clarify their goals and objectives and strategies for success.Marja, Farragut Farm
