"I joined the Transition Challenge and am so happy did because it got me hired into a top industry role making $152,000 per year with a $70,000 bonus and stock options! I was amazed at what I learned during each session and it directly led to me getting a position that I initially thought a was out of my league. I became a challenge VIP too and I'm glad I did because I was able to ask Isaiah questions personally in between sessions. Get your Challenge ticket and show up every day! It's free and will change your life!"
