"You made it easy for me to get my certificate. Not that the course was easy, but the reading was just right and you had me laughing at some of your examples. Never thought a class would be so fun, especially doing it on my own. Thanks"


"After I talked to you in person, I knew I would like your course, and that’s true. It was one of the best decisions I made while going through my devastating divorce and custody battle. I want to thank you for all the support you and your course gave me."
