I find this vey confusing because how do you teach a business idea- sure if they are looking to be farmers you can teach them to plant this or that, if they are looking to be engineers or mechanics you teach them to build or maintain this or that but to 'idea', seems bizarre to me...

It was excellent. The videos could have been longer with more examples. The style of delivery was excellent. It gave real life experience on how a practitioner needs to use
