11/26/17: The webinar course I recently completed with LIFT Economy was excellent, and every session inspired me and influenced the way I am thinking about my enterprise. My team here probably got tired about hearing about the webinars all the time. ~Jake Ifshin | Executive Director, Everybody Grows | Washington DC
11/15/17: I am happy to share my experience with the online courses our Farm Manager and I took with LIFT just recently. This was a series of Webinars (5) focused on preparing a small startup business for a successful growth phase. I am a career CFO and Human Resources professional in a nonprofit industry, recently turning my acquired professional skills toward our family, for-profit agricultural enterprise to build a sustainable life path for our family while feeding our community. I mention this because I found the Webinars helpful to someone like me, who is conversant with the business end of an enterprise but needs more industry-specific information to integrate into that knowledge base, as well as to our Farm Manager, who possesses a wide range of operational skills but needs a more solid grasp of the basic business skills required in a startup. The Webinars were comprehensive, very personal, and quite versatile. They contained enough old-school basics to satisfy generally accepted accounting principles and best practices in the C-Suite, and simultaneously offered an array of radical, visionary, next-gen tools that we all will be required to master in order to move sideways out of this dying, old economy with the scaffolding of a new one beneath us. I felt quite inspired by how thoughtfully the Webinars were designed to be both practical and inspirational, personal yet applicable to a wide range of business types and diverse levels of knowledge and experience. Personalized help was available throughout, and the Webinars built each upon the other. ... LIFT has been a source of support and inspiration far beyond their initial engagement with us. The website alone is loaded with helpful resources, and their very existence helps us feel that the next generation economy is an achievable reality. They have helped to make it so in our small corner, and its effects are reverberating through our community. ~Ellen Buechner | Managing Partner, Fortunate Farm, LLC | Caspar, CA
