TESTIMONIALS

I am writing to tell you Thank You!  I attended your workshop last December and am excited to inform you that I have successfully launched my solo practice this past April.  You have really inspired me to bring my dream to fruition. - Angela Solis, LCPC, CADC / Crossroads Counseling Services, LLC

Your program was so informative that since this time I have found a partner and I'm working in my own private practice.  At 27 years old, I am my own BOSS! Thank you so much for your program and insight. - Jodi Province MA, LPC, NCC / Lenoir, NC

I cannot overstate how invaluable the body of work has been to me over the years. After attending one of their workshops, I began to believe that I could open my own practice. After following Norm’s advice and incorporating their methods, I began to thrive.  Recommend is too weak a word.  – Michael K. Pecosh
