What people say about us!

How could anybody take a dry topic with more acronyms than Carter has pills and keep me engaged for a full day?  Elyse did it…engaging, practical, humorous, illustrative, even during the harsh “hour of hell” after lunch.  The structure/content was well thought out with each section building upon the previous one. The workbook is very thorough and a resource we will keep on our shipping desk. Highly informative seminar in a digestible, enjoyable format.  Thank you, BettySue!

The Riddle of the Exporter™ should be mandatory for every U.S. small business regardless of product or service.

“Prior to attending The Riddle of the Exporter Seminar, I had a very general understanding of the Import/Export world.  Elyse Eriksson did an incredible job, not only teaching the material, but she also made it unbelievably fun and easy to understand!  I walked away from her seminar with much more valuable information than I expected.  As a Business Banker, I can now confidently speak to Import/Export transactions and help my clients succeed financially.  I would highly recommend The Riddle of the Exporter Seminar to any new or existing Business Bankers, as well as any Business Owners that are interested in entering the Import/Export arena.”

Betty Sue…it works!  I hired Elyse to present the Riddle of the ExporterTM sight-unseen.  We hosted 55 exporters of varying levels of experience and the real miracle–they ALL came back after lunch and participated even more enthusiastically.  We received an unprecedented number of thank you emails for bringing Betty Sue to Montana to teach them a complicated topic in such a fun way.  I cannot recommend it highly enough!
