    Thanks so much for the nice article. We love to help people become entrepreneurs, so it is great to be featured in a wonderful entrepreneurial publication like The American Genius.

    It was a great article from our perspective. I would like to make one addition/correction. You state towards the end of the article, “and some classes come with money back guarantees.” Actually, all of our courses come with a no-risk 30-day money-back guarantee.
