My name is Jean and my business is Jeanious Design.
I have taken several of the courses offered by CBDC and I feel they have helped me crack out of the shell I was in.
Nervous to approach people, nervous to put myself out there in the business world and succeed or fail.
Being in class with other fresh and seasoned business people and seeing that I was not alone in my quest for business knowledge, helped me a lot.
I still have along way to go but every day that goes by I become more confident with my learning and business approach.
I am looking forward to the new classes!
