Graduate’s reflections
Jeffrey Chon
“As a small business owner, sometimes we do things for the business without understanding 'why.' During every class I would say to myself, 'That’s what I do!' and I began re-applying what I’ve been already doing, but with a deeper understanding of the fundamentals. Within two weeks, I was able to bring nine new students to my business.”
