After reviewing countless video submissions, the selections for the coveted spots in the second annual Synthesis Mentor Project were awarded to a group of instructors who come from varied training, and varied studio settings but who each possess a strong commitment to growing their business acumen, and strategies in a focused and determined manner. I am so proud to be working with each of these wonderful Teachers and Studio owners.
