People are checking in with each other on how their enrollments are doing, what creative strategies they are using to boost enrollment, and learning how they can support their business partners. Our enrollments are tracking at the same pace as last year. We have highlighted our money-back guarantee on our brochure and web site. Perhaps that is helping those who are uncertain.
