What Graduates Say About SII:

  • I was missing direction and had no real foresight as to where I was going, as far as a respectable career. I was concerned, stressed and struggling to get by and make ends meet to be able to provide a substantial quality of life for my family. And that’s when Jarrus intervened and told me he wanted to help. That’s effectively what he did.

    I’m happy to say that with Jarrus’ help I’ve been able to set my life on course. He’s helped to give me a foundation from which I’ve been able to build upon to support my family and, that to me, means the most.
