"There are several reasons that I love My eCoach. The largest one is that it has a locker where I can store what I have created and find it later. I have made a whole bunch of things online and then forgotten where they are and sometimes even that they exist. In My eCoach I can go to the Locker and find the projects that I made in the past and am sometimes surprised at what I find!

I have also met long-term friends through My eCoach who I communicate with in other ways. I know I have not used most of My eCoach to its capacity and it is really amazing the options that it does give you."
