What You Are Saying About Aboriginal BEST
I really enjoyed myself during the BEST program, and I decided to further my education by taking a horticulture operations and management program and continue to pursue my goals as a herb and vegetable farmer and hopefully expand in my business and promote good health and longevity.
I am very happy I participated in this course. It has helped me realize how much I need to know and do in order to start my business. I am definitely recommending this class to others.
The instructors were superb. They made us feel welcomed and encouraged us in our business endeavours and offered the support for the future. And as long as we want. They have really opened my eyes to where I can get funding, and the resources that I can tap into. I will never forget them or my new found classmates who we all bonded together.
This program helps our people become independent, working for themselves, starting their own business, and contributing to our community.

I enjoyed the course and found it informative. I thought Shauna did a great job of facilitating the course.
I really enjoyed Aboriginal BEST. I feel very confident in making a full business plan now. (Even the financial side of it). I really felt encouraged all the way through. L & J were always willing to listen to what everyone had to say. Oh, and their humour was the best!
I enjoyed the course! I definitely have a better understanding of what it takes to run a business. The most encouraging aspect was hearing from people who had actually started a business and gone through the process of writing a business plan. I appreciate you taking the time to break down the process of starting a business. To us non-business minded people, the thought of starting your own business is daunting. Thanks again for the encouragement.
This training session was perfect. I learned more about business than ever before. Thank you instructors for a job well done.
Perfect timing for this course as I just returned from travelling. This course allowed me to re-focus on my future career path. Jackie is a great facilitator, great to have a local from this area relate to the community and the participants. I look forward to utilizing further resources and finding my career path to entrepreneurship. Knowledge is empowerment.
