Creativity was never my problem – it was the business side of things I needed help with. So I turned to BOLC and chose one of their home study courses, which I found to be brilliantly informative and amazingly flexible.
I’m so proud to have finally broken away on my own and started my own business. And to be honest, I probably would never have done it if I didn’t enrol on BOLC’s Diploma Course. Let’s just say, I’m glad I did!
