personal growth. They were founded by Dr. Joseph Mancuso in 1977 as he left the
chairmanship of the management Department of WPI in Worcester, Ma. Joe believed
there should be a better way to learn than sitting in classrooms reading books
and taking notes and exams..
We say we
help one another grow our businesses by "Making money and having fun, while we are learning."
