What past participant say about the program: 

The Thrive workshop and Nancy’s coaching has helped me grow my business. I gained too many tools to name just a few.  I would recommend THRIVE to anyone thinking of starting a business or who owns a business. The skills & tools I learned have helped me to promote my business AND I’ve been able to apply some tools to my aid my clients. Thank you Nancy (Crain Burns and Associates) and Judy Hale (Hale Associates Center)!

                                                             Rhonda Anderson.  Owner Silver Cricket Designs

All the information, stories, examples, and group members were very beneficial and insightful. The time at the sessions and the workbook materials helped renew my excitement for why I started my own business and help me see with fresh eyes what I offer my clients and prospective clients.   Rhonda Anderson, Silver Cricket Designs

If you're starting a consulting/contracting business or simply want to ensure your enterprise is on the right path, the Thrive webinar is a very worthy experience. It gives the necessary foundation and enhancements to being successful as an entrepreneur, pretty much in any industry.  Bob Mansur, Managing Partner, Credit Employee Performance Solutions
