2021 SBM Office Hour Calls

Here are your 2021 SBM Program Office Hour Calls. These recordings expand a great deal on the teachings that were presented in class and will vastly add to your sacred business knowledge.  You should start by downloading the materials from this page (then you’ll have them forever and you can view them offline). 

Downloading the video and watching it offline is often a good solution for those with slower internet speeds as it allows you to play the video without any playback interruptions caused by a slow connection. The audio file is a good way to refresh your memory (you can play it on your iPod while doing laundry or dishes, etc. or you can listen to the class while you’re on the go).
