"The NACCE Entrepreneurship Specialist online course was the best training I have ever done. I took it right into my classroom directly after learning it myself. It's extremely effective, and it's totally the way my students think." - Ida Ponder, Columbia College, California


"[This] course was the best experience I’ve had with a comprehensive course. I learned so much in this course. I have infused many of my lessons in my teachings and have gotten positive feedback, I have emails to prove it. I have begun my Entrepreneur campaign on campus. I have launched our Entrepreneur club for the students, I have begun dialogue with the foundation, all because of this great 'Take action' course. The ideas and strategies used simply pulls what you already have in you 'Out' and take you to the next level. Thank you for this much needed course." - Laura H. Manyweather, Los Angeles Southwest College
