    Roots & Reasons Storytelling

    November 2016

    It's my opinion that Creative Live as an obligation to their paying customers to vet a class and ensure there is more time spent on the purchased content and less on presenter's solicitation of their personal business. Too often in this class, Dumas sped through course content only to give the time to promote his business. Business promotion should NOT be embarrassingly apparent in these courses. It is why I have purchased less and less from Creative Live and subscribe to other content-heavy sources like Lynda.com. Creative Live - I have some remaining loyalty since I began online education with you but you have to do something about this quickly to keep me.

    I think this is a great course for a beginner to start off strong. I really appreciated that there wasn't too much repetition, each presenter had his own perspective. I was disappointed with the lack of diversity in the presenters - all four teachers were white men. That said, they had magical information, great energy, and generosity for sharing tips! This course is worth watching and worth the investment.

    Well I am so glad that this was on air for free to get a good impression. But well this has NOTHING to do with a good class. i mean hey...a selfie? Come on... I am not paying for this shit. Creative live was once so much better...
