I was very impressed with the amount of valuable information I received in this course. Mr. Coffey is incredibly knowledgeable and the right person to teach this course. He is relatable, prepared, and paces the class ideally to pertinent and important topics. Having explored a couple of my own, small attempts at running businesses over the years, I was surprised at how much information I lacked - and was oblivious to - prior to taking this class. Please continue to offer this course for others to benefit.
