    5* because 10 was not available.
    I took this course because I like tools. I’ve taken A LOT of tool courses/seminars and Nick you were amazing.
    Knowledgeable, Easy to follow, thorough, and while you may have been offering a few items that are proprietary – I was not of the mindset that anything was being pushed.
    Overall – Nick should do All tool seminars as I truly found his and Groomhaus’ hands down the most informative.
    If you are wondering if its worth it – YES. Stop over thinking and sign up for this course.
