People Power Course

Should you hire, outsource or contract your next team member?

Business is a team sport, even if you’re a solopreneur (and plan to stay one). We believe that when you surround yourself with the right people, you fast-track your path to business success. If you’re ready to create a high performance team then this course will set you on your way to creating the ultimate team for your business.
