I have received business training in Spanish and business counseling that helped me clarify my business idea and implement powerful marketing strategies. I want to especially thank my Business Advisors for providing me with their knowledge and experience so my dream of starting my own business WayLatino.com became true. Now, I am signing up client #17 and I am thrilled about that!”
