“Boy did it hit the spot with Carrie's first two videos alone! Summing up what we do at The Cohive Collective has always been difficult - as I'm sure most business-owning women feel the same - we encompass so many amazing offerings it's hard to put them into a concise & captivating pitch. I am so excited to be part of this course and can't wait to meet up for our zoom session later this week.”
Founder of Cohive Collective
“I do suffer from imposter syndrome and pitching is something I really need to get much more comfortable about. Talking about my business/ solution is great when I can do it fluidly. I really think Carrie did a great job, especially for new founders who haven't had any exposure to pitches, decks etc.”
