Pranary has a great way of planning events that speak to me as an individual in my entrepreneurial journey. Today’s event changed my life and my thoughts about google ads. I have been equipped with digital knowledge which is something that everyone wants and talks about but do not know the right path to follow. I am grateful for Pranary.
