I am but a mindful haberdasher. My words are stifled and whimsical whilst my thoughts run plenty and strong. I'll give you a hearty handshake if you look me in the eye. Please teach me thorough for I am slow of study. I've shared all I've ever learned, and learned everything from the act of sharing. But please, keep your words small, for I am but a mindful haberdasher...

Very helpful advice. Liked it that your video was informal and parts of it were not TOO intimidating in production values as I'm a newbie. Makes me think I can create something, too. Nice to have planning all laid out so simply. Am inspired to think about what I might teach! Thanks!

L. Ron Hubbard eat your heart out, this reminded me of the Dianetics commercials in the 90's. Humor is a great way to entertain while you inform. This will (and should be) a popular lesson for some time to come. Awesome. :)
