Here’s what Lily had to say about working with Effició:
“…first and foremost…realizing that I tend to over complicate things and working with Effició has really shown me how to simplify things and the fact that I don’t have to be present all the time to run a business. Sherese has shown me that there are all kinds of businesses and things that I can do but the internal infrastructure must be developed in order for me to explore as much as I want. I get to decide what kind of business I want and how much I want to put into it – it’s actually my business.”

Here’s what Don had to say about working with Effició:
In today’s world, everything is virtual and centered around technology. Business owners are communicating virtually instead of spending their budgets on traveling and meeting. CORE allows you to instantaneously interact with your strategist and the other participants. I really enjoyed the CORE technology used; there were times when I was under the gun but I was able to go home and call in while taking care of other responsibilities. Also, one of the benefits is that you’re not intimidated to say something and it’s more of an open sort of communication. You’re free to express ideas and your thought process flows much better. This program is a must for entrepreneurs who need a a great education program even though they are running a business and having hectic days. And it saves you money and helps you make money! I say sign up asap!!!”
