"I thoroughly enjoyed this class and have learned a LOT! Joi is very patient and thoroughly answers any questions. I watched the entire video and have gone back to the beginning to watch it again - I am about halfway through (the second round). I am finding that things are even clearer the second go-round. I would suggest watching the entire course at least twice, especially for those finding it difficult to follow. Her approach makes perfect sense! Thanks, Joi!"
