"Your genuine passion for helping business owners take control of finance inspires us to go forth and ‘flip’ Thanks for your honesty about your own experiences.

"Great workshop. Serena is an excellent coach and presenter. Very engaging, knowledgable and approachable. Learned lots that I will actually use."
