Startup Nation's Online Course Rave Reviews


Andrew Dobo, Psy D

I learned a lot! This training was the most enjoyable training I've ever been to. They limited talking “at us” but rather engaging us made time go quickly keeping us listening and thinking to participate in the process. I would recommend any courses you two talented women offer. 


Carolina Gavaria, LMHC

Kate and Katie made their medical errors webinar fun and easy to follow. It was informative and examples were on spot with current issues presented by clients. I highly recommend their courses to any new and seasoned practitioner wanting to watch from the comfort of their office or home.
