“Great instructor. He personalized the class by his delightful personality. Loved his humor. I'm leaving having felt like I learned a lot. Very knowledgeable and insightful. (probably asked too many questions but he was very patient and kind).”

, August 2017

“Sean was very easy to listen to. He was specific about each of us filling out the workbook and devoted time during class for us to do each section as we worked through the subject. As a business owner, I recognized the importance of writing these things down, and it's still easy to make it a low priority, yet with Sean's guidance each of us made a positive step forward in accomplishing our goals.”
