"Thank you, WCWB, for the chance to give a big shout-out to the professional, knowledgeable, encouraging coaches who have helped create my solo-preneural journey. I would not have wanted to walk this road without them. They have been accessible and supportive during times when I have felt especially vulnerable; feeling like I should know all of this already. They build me up with information, resources, expertise, and cheers to KEEP GOING. You have my gratitude, WCWB. Your work empowers women in deeply impactful ways. <3" - Sherrie Homer

“The ScaleUp TuneUp training has given me the tools to create a more efficient business. For years my business has consumed my life – I worked every position, 7 days a week 24 hours a day and rarely had time off. TuneUp has shown me how to implement systems and put together a team. I have now taken the role of the CEO and our company practically runs itself.” – Marty Marstrom, Meridian Care Home
