Here is what some of our program participants have to say

"The MNP Self Employment Program delivered more than I expected. From the information sessions to the in-person classes, which later switched to virtual classes, all the team members were approachable, helpful, and highly supportive."

- Funke Fasunon
Gramoire Writers and Clerks

"The MNP Self-Employment Program educated and equipped me to take my business from concept to cash flow positive. The comprehensive courses helped me develop a business plan that doubles as a playbook and navigate the perils of startup stage. Without the MNP Program, my business wouldn’t be where it is today - employing four people and supporting other small businesses with my patronage – accountants, lawn care, property managers and more."

- Todd Curran
HomeServ Property Services

"I can't recommend the MNP Self Employment Program enough. They helped me build a business plan, which I would have never done on my own, even though that business plan (and 3-year revenue forecasts) all came true. Sensible Marketer couldn't have grown from a solopreneur start-up to a business supporting four full-time team members without the MNP Self Employment Program. Thank you for helping small businesses grow."

- Katherine Lesperance
Sensible Marketer Inc.
