My Dad and I poured a lot of time and effort into making these in-depth and educational videos for you. When making these videos, we strived to fit the needs of someone just starting out. Whether that is you who’s just looking for a worthwhile career, a side hustle, or a means to start and finish that project that you’ve been threatening to do. Our aim in these videos is to give you the skills that you will need to fulfill your goal! To do this we made the videos as in-depth and naturally paced as possible, filling them with techniques, which you can apply to other projects. We’re here to breakdown, not water-down our methods that took years to learn so that you have the know-how and confidence to take on any project that comes your way.
