A change in attitude boosted my business

In her own words…

Immaculate marvels at the numerous benefits she has attained during her 10 days of training with the Kyusa Program “Having a poor attitude towards my customers almost cost me my business mostly because I was rude, not truthful to them. This attitude gap was bridged by the lessons I learned about being mindful of the customer’s values. I Have since then managed to attract a few other customers to my business. From the training, I was empowered to come up with a vision board which I believe is very important in guiding me towards achieving my bigger dream. I am very thankful for the program and my prayer is that it be extended to other regions as well”
