Since releasing it, my bookings have increased dramatically and I booked the majority of them in just the first month it was posted!!! He is such a wonderful guy to work with. I can see that he truly cares and loves what he does. He is genuine, honest, and has amazing integrity. I’m definitely going to be doing another video with him!
