    I have got through lots of it and I LOVE it. You start from absolute basics, including telling people to try and realise what your own business means and that it is not for everyone. You are really amazing honestly. I can feel how much wisdom and experience you have through the course and how you sometimes start episodes with " how did you go with this and that". I love the pace you're talking so it is not too fast or too slow.
