Professional Memberships

[Susan] opened our eyes to the communications issues we’ve had. Because we're old friends, we don't want to hurt each other's feelings. She's teaching us to focus on the business; to take criticism and know it’s not personal. All of that has greatly improved our business functioning as well as our relationships.
