"Just to let you know, my phone has not stopped ringing this week. My website is drawing visitors like flies. I put the site up before I started the business and now I am reaping the benefits, getting prospects and contacts. Thanks again for the great class. I signed up two food broker/distributors this week and have demos on the North Shore all weekend. I am also booked all next weekend. Your class is number one in my book."

- Peter V. Bella
