“Jacob did a great job of making the course interesting, fun, and engaging. He has a wealth of knowledge, and I appreciate him sharing it with us. Our course moved online due to lockdown, which was a better experience than I’d expected.”

I just completed the PSM course with Jacob Creech, and it was excellent. I didn't know what it would be like via ZOOM, but Jacob created a lovely vibe, and we all bonded and had a great experience while learning lots. I also appreciate all the resources Jacob provided after the course. A wonderful experience!
