So far, the past two sessions have been a blast. I know I needed help, but was unsure of what exactly I needed. Paul identified the issue, and is not only guiding me in fixing it, but also helping me in understanding how I work and why it became an issue. He is passionate about his work, and a blessing to talk to every week.
