Jade completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
Leon is inspiring and give some great points. Worth a look at even if you are an Advanced entrepreneur due to his points, planning and attention to how to retire when it comes time. I know some people who were whizzes that really could have done with thinking about this aspect. Its tough to watch your business crumble once you have left.
