Quote from attendees:
“I have read Donna Cardillo’s nursing articles. This is my first conference I’m attending of Donnas’. This conference was excellent … it over exceeded my expectations. The conference was tremendously helpful and informative. Donna was superior! Her genuine and real approach to teaching the concepts were excellent. She was able to breakdown the anatomy of starting a business with simplicity, joy, reality, beloved with her expertise. She shared great, thought-provoking easy ideas to get your business started. I highly, highly recommend Donna’s course of How to Start Your Own Business or Consulting Practice. I feel increased confidence after this course to positively move forward in further establishing my own business and success.”
