I believe that the information presented was exactly what anyone would need to create the foundation for a successful business. I was really pleased to know that I would have access to many tools even AFTER the Boot Camp to help me learn more and practically implement what I learned. Worth every penny!

Making the leap from being medically minded to being "retail minded" is one of the greatest challenges facing clinical professionals. Boot Camp has provided me the initial training to see myself and my services differently, and create a medical spa wellness program that improves the health and self-esteem of my patients.
