"I would highly recommend this program to others working their way up through distribution. I loved the self-based timeline and bi-weekly check in discussions. I met new people that I can learn from outside of the program and feel confident in sharing my new knowledge with others. This program is worthwhile and I learned so much."

Don't just take our word for it

Hear what learners have to say


It has been an incredible learning experience for me. The comprehensive curriculum, expert instructors and the very interactive format have transformed my approach to management. 

I really enjoyed the approach to creating a management style. This program provided so many great tools that I shouldn't have any issues finding many new and great ideas to further my sales management career. 

The program's flexibility allowed me to balance learning with my busy schedule. The practical exercises allowed me to learn in real world scenarios. Thanks to this program I have grown both personally and professionally!

I highly recommend it to anyone seeking to elevate their managerial skills and make a lasting impact in their organization. "


The resources provided in this course are well developed and explained. I will begin using them immediately and will put into practice this new way of setting and reaching goals for our office.

 I have been in business for many years and have learned on the job. This course has provided me the tools with which to measure and manage based on industry standards.

My goal in taking the course was to be able to better understand and use our financial statements to understand and manage the business. I will continue to put in the work and become more comfortable with the process. 


The program was a great personal development opportunity.

I loved the scenarios and stories. The training gave me the opportunity to think about our organization, how things currently are and how we can grow as a company.

I would definitely recommend the class and look forward to more educational training!


"My objective with taking the course was really to dive deeper into the financials and metrics. However, the goal setting and management side of the course really caught my attention in the way it was presented.

It was much more practical than your standard "management style". It really focused on being dynamic and how to adapt to the changes that occur in the real world and not what some textbook says should happen. The financial tools were also great because it gave me the resources to really dive in deep and understand my numbers in relation to industry benchmarks.

I thoroughly enjoyed connecting with others during the live sessions because you could have real conversations with other people in your exact situation to help each other solve problems. This program was not just some textbook/pie in the sky management course. It really focused on the real world and more importantly, how to adapt to the changing world we face and how to manage those changes."


In all my years working in sales or management, I have never experienced a session that taught me as much as this one.

I strongly believe that it is absolutely essential for anyone entering the business world or getting involved in the sales aspect.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching both John's and Jeremy's videos, and the virtual conversations we had were equally enriching.
