Running my own business has definitely taught me things that cannot be taught through school. Prior to my business career I was in the Marine Corps, and learned a totally different skill set. With the different experiences in life that I have encountered it is refreshing to find a school/ program I can use all my experiences.

The SPS program has encouraged me, challenged me, and pushed me to want to be better in my business life, as well as my faith. The program really has opened my eyes to a different side of education that I have never had before. I would 100% recommend this program to anyone out there.
