I attended this workshop last year. Rick and his assistants do an awesome job! Not only did I learn a lot from this workshop... but Rick always made the most of every situation and I felt like I could ask any question at any time (in regards to the workshop). If you haven't been there... then I highly recommend it.

Have taken 2 of Rick's workshops/seminars in the past and may well attend in the future. No question too big or too small for Rick. Always provides helpful guidance whether complex or simple without making you feel like you shouldn't have asked. Informative and fun!!!
