Powerhouse of One: How to Be Super Successful MSP (or Solo Entrepreneur)

Course 5W18 - Living the Dream - Instructor: Lori Hardtke

- Five Tuesdays - November 19 - December 17, 2019

- All classes start a 9:00 AM Pacific

You hear it all the time, you need to work "on" your business not "in" your business. You need to hire staff and delegate in order to grow. But what if you could grow your business to $300K or more without any additional full-time staff on your payroll?

Tired of sitting in traffic to make that meeting across town and filling up at the pump every few days? What if you could master running your MSP practice remotely nearly 100% of the time?

Ever dream of having no monthly A/R and no debt?

Then this class is for you!

The class Lori did was simply awesome.  I learned so much.  She is what I want to be when I grow up!
