As a social media trainer and consultant, I have been so blessed to be able to guide some of the most amazing people in starting their businesses — and then marketing their businesses, and I LOVE every bit of it!
Something that I see repeatedly though, are people who keep coming to my classes (some for the last almost ten years). Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate repeat attendees, but the people I am speaking of are those that come back only with a different business or business idea each time.
