    Do people have to have a success coach to be able to attend this skill building/financial success program?

    Thanks for your help.

      Thanks for your question! I don’t know if you were contacted directly with a reply to this, but I’ll answer it here for other people too. No! You don’t need to have a Success Coach or be enrolled in a program at ESR to participate. There is no fee for the workshop, and the public is welcome to attend. Just be sure to call ESR on the day of the class to make sure there have been no schedule changes.
