This was a great class!! Brian Asher was insanely knowledgable and a really engaging instructor. I wish I had taken a course like this 20 years ago, I would have made far better decisions with my money. I think the instructor really makes a difference in a course like this. He made the information come alive. I would not hesitate to take more courses with him. Plus he’s hilarious!
