After participating in countless promo courses and webinars over the years, BBU stands out as among the best. Kirby’s content is in depth and relevant to every-day life in the promo world and most importantly, it is self-paced so that you can learn on your own schedule. This old dog learned some new tricks!

BBU was AMAZING! The content was informative and easy to digest. 10/10 recommend!
Shannon Laredo

Our industry doesn’t stop when you learn about a new promotional product or a new decoration for those items. Continued education is key and BBU certainly filled me with outside my normal day information but VERY impactful knowledge that helps me be a better rep to my client partners every single day!!!
Nadav Raviv

Kirby is a wealth of knowledge and I consider him a trusted advisor in all business matters. The BBU is going to be a fantastic resource for anyone who wants to build knowledge in business. Kirby’s experience lends itself to the content he provides. It is helpful to talk to someone who has learned the ins and outs of business and is willing to listen and coach with the heart of a teacher. I am honored and privileged to work with him and continue to learn from him.
