"The way the class was structured as far as dealing with the pandemic and the crisis management that followed was very impactful. This year has been a fast year for me and I knew I needed to scale and Proof coached me on how to scale properly."

"So many things in the industry that come up are unexpected, but I knew with Proof, I had someone to call to say 'hey, this is what I’m experiencing' and ask if it’s normal and if they can help me. It’s given me a great sense of confidence, because now when I’m making decisions for the restaurant, I have an opinion from someone who is experienced and gone through what I am now."
