I received a wealth of information. Coming into the class with no idea how to streamline an art that i have practiced for years was priceless, giving me a new starting point.

I honestly can say everything about this course was helpful. my trips from DC to New York every week was well worth it. Looking forward to next workshop.

A major difference I now have a better idea of where and how to start.

I liked how open and honest the instructor was with the pros and cons. He was very “stating the facts” - and we could make our own choices.
