New Class :: Make ‘em Love You :: Begins MONDAY!
We are lucky enough to have Janie Hewson, marketing expert, teach a four week class entitled, “Make ‘em Love You.” This class covers the steps you can take today to make sure that you know how to find and keep the right clients for you. If you are not being sold, you don’t have a job, so come and learn with Janie and Eclipse as she changes the way you look at your business and the industry.

Lesson #1 :: Who Are You?
Lesson #2 :: Who Are They?
