The experience was one I’ll never forget I loved it want to stay for the other half but will definitely take it again and recommend it to others still practicing the techniques and using them in my business

Reviewed by Norma H. on 3/7/2019
I thoroughly enjoyed this class. Michael exudes excellence. His assistant, Josh was very efficient. They were organized and professional. The class was prompt and ran like a well oiled machine. Listen, I learned more in 4 hours and walked away with 3 arrangements. I took an 8 hour course in December and walked away angry! Michael also interjected humor, while still being firm. Kudos! I look forward to taking the 101.
