“Hi Slim,

I just finished watching your style and strategy segment on respecting the trend. I have to say, you couldn’t have better tailored a segment to address what’s ailing me. This segment alone would be worth the cost of a year’s subscription (if not more). Fantastic advice! Thank you so much,”
