Asa conducted a personalized company regulatory training for LifeSeasons

Having seen Asa’s online presence, I felt sure that our team would receive thorough and expert training. Even coming in with high expectations, I was still amazed by how much we all learned, how engaged everyone was, and how quickly the time flew by as the team had lightbulb after lightbulb go off in their heads! It takes a special skill to connect with a group with such varying levels of understanding—from new hires who heard the word DSHEA for the first time today, to industry veterans with 35+ years of supplement experience, and all of the team found value in the workshop today. Highly, highly recommended!
