"The Greater Good Academy introduced me to processes, ideas and people to encourage me, guide me, and assist me in creating a successful business with integrity, clarity, and respect for our planet and its inhabitants. The step-by-step process provided me with answers to questions from the big picture to the smallest details, and the scariest parts of managing a business".
