B.L.A.S.T. Student Testimony: Steve & Holly Holladay

"We attended B.L.A.S.T. so Steve could learn how to develop Ultimate Escape as an organization. Holly saw it as a monthly “date” with Steve. We received MUCH more than we envisioned! Presentation enhancement, writing skills, book development, marketing strategies, industry insight, and LOTS of encouragement; Shannon equipped us thoroughly to better carry out God’s calling on our lives. The dividends of our B.L.AS.T. investment have been well worth our while. Our territory has expanded globally and Holly is preparing her first book proposal. We frequently utilize the skills and information we received through B.L.A.S.T., and Shannon continues to be a resource for us."
