"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 probably got tired about hearing about the webinars all the time."

"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.

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 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."

"The Next Economy MBA has been hugely empowering for me. I now have the analytic framework to understand the key dimensions of business, the best practices that lead to success, and the hidden dangers that can lead to failure. 

I’ve used the course material to increase my organization’s profitability and to shift our operations and culture toward real care and equitability. I’ve been invited into more leadership and am blessed to receive my colleagues’ gratitude and support.

I feel I’ve leapfrogged years and years of learning in just a few months in this course. I have come to see, too, where I can continue to deepen the skills and attitudes I will continue to cultivate to better serve people and planet.

I am SO grateful to the LIFT team for their experience and guidance. I would heartily recommend this course to anyone serious about extending their impact. "
