I recently attended a SCORE seminar on how to price services. Carolyn was enthusiastic and well spoken. Her impressive experience provided great examples that complimented the content of the work shop. She was very attentive to each attendee's questions and even offered to provide some business advice after the seminar. I definitely want to attend more of her workshops, so much so that I'm even considering one of her leadership talks!
