The Best Yet
I am reluctant to say a course is the best on Udemy because there are so many different courses covering many different subjects approaches etc. OK. Well for this course i am going to put discernment before my principle ! This course is probably the best course on Udemy..phew there i said it ! why? Because it covers the fundamentals of life of growth in very simple step by step way. A lot of common sense here..but don't sniff at that...commons sense is not very common. And to find a teacher of this calibre who has a way of making you sweat: (and smile) Truly a gift what a heaven sent course this is - by Paul Soffe,
