What are past participants saying about PowerUP™?

(formerly called Quantum Progressions)

"I had the pleasure of taking numerous classes with Sandra Holtzman. She inspires discussions based on real life business situations and suggests ways to overcome obstacles. She uses expertise from her corporate consulting and entrepreneurial background to share knowledge from her personal business experiences. She helped me gain a new perspective in my business. Sandy is a very successful entrepreneur, trainer, and facilitator, and I look forward to participating in her next program." - . Robin Berg Tabakin, Technoforce, LLC

“Sandy is an unusual teacher. She combines the serious information of business with a sense of humor and an important urgency that converted me from overlooking some aspects of my business to embracing proven behavior. My business expanded 104% in the first six months after graduating from her program. I’m walking the walk thanks to Sandy’s in-depth explanations and genuine encouragement” - Laurel Bernstein, Laurel Bernstein and Associates
