“I got my previous training from (another organization). It was pretty good. BUT, the way that LifeAnswers’ training breaks down the Index UL – there’s nothing better in my book! In the past, I’ve had 4-6 people in my office, watching my computer screen as you give the training every week. They get it – courtesy of you. Thanks!”
