"Training was very informative. The trainer was cheerful and helped to lighted the mood although this is a tough subject. I benefited greatly from hearing others experiences and listening to comments from the audience. I have two small children who I know are being affected by my situation. This presentation made me realize I have to make some changes on a professional and personal level." - Aida Garibay. Owner, Garibay & Associates, DBA Primerica.
