"A few months after BTUA, I was named acting CEO of our company when our CEO had to take a sudden temporary leave of absence. BTUA made an important difference in being able to accept this unexpected turn of events with confidence and calm. I don't know what the future holds but Bonnie and Vickie prepared me for whatever it is
~Deb F.., Acting CEO and EA
