Sam,

I so admire you and love the fact that you share your talents and wisdom.  I try and watch your videos every week.  Keeps me so inspired.  As an "older" stylist who finally went off on her own, I never want to stagnate!  Thank you for keeping me motivated!  I hope someday I get to see you in person for a class!
