  • If the idea didn’t go well with the champion, work with them to know what went wrong and how we can pivot the concept.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
