Smile Pretty Excited! (Seminar)

My continuing ed group is hosting a seminar next month with Mike Holt, on Grounding and Bonding. I'm pretty excited. 8hrs, and his new book on G&B is included. Hopefully I can walk away with some worthwhile knowledge.

I can assure you that you will learn alot. Mike Holt is excellent at this and I have heard very positive things about his grounding and bonding seminars.

I was thinking about one of those life alert things so that when I get a life, it would alert me.

This would be such an amazing thing to go to, Its sort of a big world out there so I'm assuming its not going to be in Houston Texas though? I'd love to go to it, you've got me excited. Is it going to be streamed, how can I join in on this seminar?

Just my opinion.

if you gain true understanding ?
not just rote learning !
you will have a real advantage when it comes to solving tricky problems
if you don't understand how it works when it does !
then you will never know why it doesnt work when it don't !

Well, the seminar was this past Saturday, and I have to tell you, it was great! I really picked up a good bit of knowledge. Well worth my time and money.

Mike is a good guy. He was funny, he was engaging, and really broke things down to simple terms.

If you guys have a chance to see him, I would recommend signing up.

Thats the way I felt the first time going to a Charlie Greer seminar.

I am proud of you.
I would rather get genital warts than attend a G&B seminar.

I look at it as investing in myself.

I know lots of sparkies who are just glorified parts installers. I don't want to be that guy. I'm trying to soak up as much as I can.

I'm all for that. Charlie Greer's seminars were always held in Fort Myers . That is where my family lived. God Bless America and I hope you guys get what I am saying here without being too damn obvious.. Nyuck, Nyuck......

Education - You pay for it once, you use it for a lifetime, and nobody can ever take it away from you.
