Marina Simon studied and applied the Hubbard Management System and, as she states, “The results are unbelievable.” Having a MBA from Columbia University, Marina thought she was fully prepared in the area of Management.  However, after studying the Hubbard Management System for a short period, Marina knew “this was it.”

“You take a piece of information – apply it – and boom – IT WORKS!!! The results are unbelievable.

“I want to share with you the success that my husband and I had with the application of this technology in our business, which became one of the biggest health care practices in the area applying this simple but powerful technology.

“My husband started his practice in 1987 with little management skills.  He was looking for help and in the same year he attended a Hubbard Management System seminar and was awed by the reality that the speaker had with his business challenges.

“At the time he joined WISE, he was working as a solo practitioner with one office and one staff member.  Since that time the practice has grown every year.  We now have six locations and over 65 employees. And he has even turned over the running of the business to his staff, and is now fulfilling his dream of being an artist full-time.”
