    I had a great time in this class. I have taken business classes and was looking for something to refresh my ideas of a business plan. The class did that and much more. I am now confident that I will be able to get my business plan on the go. She also gave use resources to help us network which was great because I am new to Chicago.

    Very informative and encouraging. Moreover, the atmosphere she provides is very casual and she's open to any and all questions.
    Awesome teacher.

    Nancy has done an excellent job of creating a concise but extremely helpful and informative course about Fashion Business Planning. I left the class with much needed focus and direction to develop and market my business and usable tools that could be implemented immediately. While it's a 'fashion business' focused course, the tools and information she provided could be applied to anyone considering starting their own business. My only regret is because of some confusion on the exact room location, I missed out on more time with Nancy.

    This class provided wonderful, concrete ideas for developing my business. I left with a rough draft of a mission statement and the beginnings of a simple business plan. Nancy asked great questions that helped me define my vision, anticipate challenges, and prepare to overcome them. She also had many useful tips for marketing and networking. I left feeling motivated and energized!
