Absolutely amazing

I have been following Rick for years and just gleaning. After a really challenging time, listening and watching Rick Barker and know that I have prepared myself to get to applying what I’ve learned as well as am determined to continue my music biz education.

That was a run on sentence yet you get my point. Thanks, Music Industry Blueprint.
