"Within a month of being certified, I was contacted about a job opportunity that hadn't been advertised - it was all through word of mouth within my ANFP network - and was able to earn more than I had previously! Since becoming certified, I became a board member for my state's Chapter and immediately got to be involved in the decision-making process regarding our upcoming meeting(s). Not only has the grant positively impacted my career, but my confidence and self-esteem."
