“I met Don Phin as a student in the Money and You program presented by Excellerated Business Schools. I was immediately struck by his focus, pragmatism, love and compassion. Don is the prototype of the new professional for the twenty-first century. He understands that his professional success, as well as the success of those around him, has as much to do with people’s feelings as with his technical skills or anything else. Don’s unique ability to bridge various disciplines and take a common-sense approach toward workplace relationships is destined to make a significant contribution for years to come.”
–DC Cordova, CEO of Excellerated Business Schools
