Yes Ma’am. No Ma’am.

by Bernie Dixon

Anyone serving in the military recognizes that there are only three acceptable responses to a superior officer’s directive or question: “Yes Ma’am. No, Ma’am. Ma’am I do not understand.” The last response is seen as a request for more information before responding with “Yes, Ma’am” or “No, Ma’am.” It is basic military training. It works in the military environment where officers are trained in effective decision making and rehearsed in making decisions under extreme pressure.

Decision making is considered one of the key

Applying to the Launchpad2X program was one of the best decisions I've made for my personal development and for my business.  The inside-out approach of the program builds a solid and powerful foundation for success.  Graduating from the program solidified my commitment to continuing my entrepreneurial journey with confidence due to the valuable information shared, relationships built, and connections to resources for building my business.

Bernie Dixon's Launchpad 2x program tells the unflinching truth about what it takes to be an effective CEO. It's an ongoing master class that would be helpful to any leader of an emerging growing organization looking to grow. But the fact that it focuses on women entrepreneurs provides an invaluable boost. It's the private club of fellow entrepreneurs you never knew you needed.

There was a dramatic difference in my business performance pre & post the LaunchPad2X program. Today, my tech communications agency is National Small Agency of the year and one of the fastest growing tech PR firms in the country. I started LP2X with less than a quarter million in revenue - a number that has more than quadrupled in three years. As an LP2X alumni, I look forward to the monthly Masters classes as I continue to gain professional development and acquire the business acumen that's critical to scaling a business. Bernie has cracked the code on female entrepreneurial education and I am grateful for the skills and networking that the program has provided me.

Having an excellent MBA education was not enough to give me the ways and means to become an entrepreneur. LaunchPad2X Program provided me with opportunity, empowering network and relevant expertise to become a confident and successful women CEO.  The Master’s program provides graduates with on-going relevant training, accountability, and a supporting community.  I highly recommend the negotiation course offered by Bernie Dixon, which is uniquely tailored to empower women entrepreneur!
