Sam's workshop is inspiring and packed with practical information that you can implement in your practice/work. Plus there is added value in joining his slack group and staying engaged with business practices and sharing information. Whether you are starting your own business or established and growing - this workshop is applicable.

Sam was full of great information. 2 hours just the tip of the iceberg for this subject matter. I wish he had a one-day or two-day intensive.

Sam was awesome to deal with throughout - very responsive to all my queries, since I hadnt used several of the pieces of equipment before, and very efficient and flexible for pickup and dropoff. He even gave me a carrying case for all the gear, which made things very easy to manage. Would love to rent from him again. Thanks Sam!

Sam made the rental experience easy, professional, and brisk. He was knowledgeable and responsive. His gear was in perfect order and was easily picked up and returned at whatever hour served my needs. Sam has it totally dialed in.
