"As an artist with limited business sense, this was the perfect course for me to take. Kris took a lot of the mystery out of starting a small business. Her teaching style was very friendly and easy to comprehend. Thank you!"

"Excellent instructor - excellent course! I thoroughly enjoyed taking this class and can't wait to use the information I learned to start setting up my own small business. Thanks for the opportunity for me to be able to take this class. It was very little effort on my part to complete it, but what I learned will stay with me a lifetime."

"Great course! This was my first on-line course and I was very skeptical about it. I was surprised how much information was given and the ease of doing everything on the internet. With a family and a full-time job, the flexibility of doing your course work, when it fit your schedule was so very sweet! I thought the discussion pages were going to be a waste of time and space, but once again I was surprised at the information you could gather reading and corresponding with the professor and other classmates. Last, but certainly not least... Professor Kristin made the class. She made it a point to work with EVERYONE in our class. She supplied ideas, tips, and gave us direction in reaching our goals. I can't even imagine the hours she most have put in on her computer answering each and every one of us. Great job, Professor Kris! Thank you so much for all your information and guidance."

"I enjoyed the course and although I own a small business already, I learned some very important tips."

"I enjoyed this class very much, the Professor was extremely knowledgeable and professional. I would definitely recommend it to someone with this particular interest."

"I feel this class has helped me gain a greater insight into my own goals and provided support that will be useful going forward in the development of my next career."

"I found the instructor to be knowledgeable, approachable, supportive and helpful. She has a very creative side and was very personable as well. I learned a lot in this course and it will all be very useful and applicable in my future business endeavors. I am glad I took this course and will recommend it to others."

"I have enjoyed this course so much. Professor Kristin made it fun to learn. Not only have I learned much that I didn't know, but I also gained a different perspective in the more familiar areas of business. The lessons were very informative and I especially like the discussion areas to "eavesdrop"! The Professorís quick responses and encouragement kept my attention and I looked forward to each new lesson. Thank you for the great class. I am glad I tuned in."
