from our grads

"I found so much value in Ashley's GI-MAP mentorship program. I really needed extra guidance on best business practices and processes and walked away with a clear road map of things I needed to update in my business. Not to mention the binder I filled with GI-MAP insights and case studies for future reference. If you are on the fence about the program, it is 100% worth your time and money."
