What do former students say about this class?

"I highly, HIGHLY recommend attending this class.  I attended the class in Houston and it was excellent. 
Doug is very knowledgeable and has an informal style of instruction that keeps the class interesting and encourages interaction with the students, and is not simply a 16 hour lecture. 
I also met many interesting people and made some new contacts. All in all, if this class comes anywhere near me again ... I'll be going if I have to host a bake sale to get there."
-- Jake Sallee
