  1. For God's sake you really have trouble making yourself heard, especialy for someone who gives advice on marketing. Make the noise lower. PLS.

  2. Appreciate Video! Apologies for butting in, I would love your opinion. Have you tried – Miyatalie Social Saccade (do a search on google)? It is a great one of a kind product for discovering how a newbie student made over 60k in just 60 days minus the normal expense. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my best friend Jordan got cool results with it.
