Hi Sam, my name is Maria Cabseedas and I am from Washington, DC, and I'm here now just really quickly. I love your program it's been quite an eye opener and it actually came to me at a time when I was completely fatigued with the company that I had started nine years ago and it was just sort of hitting a wall and I saw your video and I thought, this is an amazing program.
It just sort of stayed with me for a couple of weeks so I ended up purchasing it and going through it and absolutely loving everything about it. The organizational structure is great, I don't have to do all the research, which is super helpful with the kind of schedule that I have. I currently have 15 employees, opening a second store, it's a recreational culinary school called Cookology.
Getting your program made me take stock of the skills that I had so that I could look. It's hard to explain because you would think someone who was so busy and an entrepreneur running this business, no time for anything else that they wouldn't want to start something else, but I think that's the definition of an entrepreneur. I come up with a business once a day. I come up with ideas, things that I want to sell, things that I want to do or retreats. I came up with two ideas yesterday.
Having your program really helped me to stay focused and put a business behind all of my ideas. So I've been using your Facebook ads and the way that you do it and seeing success just with my own company. I've helped a couple of people strike out on their business, because I'm really good at starting businesses, getting people off the ground, doing a lot of ground up marketing and just looking at the numbers, profit and loss, and doing financials, negotiating leases and really just kind of helping them think through their next step for starting their own business.
Just thank you so much, and I'm really happy to be a part of your accelerator program and I look forward to getting into more and more information and keep up the good work, you're an awesome guy, and thank you very much. Bye.
