“I threw myself into learning. I threw myself into business. And I threw myself into the idea of working for myself and owning businesses.
Fast forward seven years...I've bought companies, I've invested in businesses, I've raised money, I've sold them...It is the most rewarding thing I've done in my life...And now I've got holdings in several businesses, as well as property investments and stock investments."
"Something that I really enjoyed about my ActionCOACH experience was having the opportunity to meet new people from around the world during the fortnightly zoom sessions with our very own action coach. I also enjoyed creating my Vision Board- a board in which you can include your goals over the next few years through pictures and quotes."
--Morven Webb (age 14, Scotland)

Becoming an Entrepreneur...

A student 2 weeks into the YESS Business Basics beta class says…
“I’ve got through about 11 videos, and I’m really enjoying it. It’s teaching me so much. Even (my dad) was saying he goes through that sort of stuff in his business everyday, particularly the accountability, responsibility and the ownership aspects that Brad Sugars was talking about...I’ve been watching my brother in business, and I can see that people are not taking ownership. They’re trying to blame other people, and they’re the management. I really feel it’s helping me…So far I don’t have any questions. I am understanding all of it, and it’s going well.”
--Caden Coetsee(age 18, South Africa)
