All right, next up, I want to say thank you so much for the creative live crew you guys have you tune in any time before we are a live on the air, you'll see the black and white overhead cam, there are people running around here and that means there are a lot of people making all those little moving pieces happen and that make this workshop come to fruition so that we can actually come live.

All right, this is the point where I finally feel like I need a stool I finally feel like I need somewhere to sit down but I'm not gonna do it I'm not gonna do it like man first remember the first day there was a table in a chair and they say you know you can feel free to sit down on like this I really my style to sit down to much I did wear some rather uncomfortable shoes today I figured I'd make something look a little bit but that was not really a good idea didn't prove to be a good idea so I've left I got rid of a lot of this stuff that was on the table before and I added a lot of new stuff even out of this fancy bottle of water here excuse me let me say this through the staff here have they really have blown my expectations when I first came in I thought creative live is I mean it's a conglomerate is a big company is huge and they do these do these things every day all over the place and I said when I first walked in I said man, am I gonna fit in here because I'm just a little guy from north carolina? You know my eyes this really going to be something that's going to be fun for me and I have to say from the moment I walked through the door it has been the most amazing teaching experience I've ever had they take great care of you and I can really tell that whoever's running this show in here they've got it down pat they've got it down pat and there they kind of get rid of all the fluff all the stuff that all the fillers and everything, they take that out and everyone here is very organic and that's. Why I feel so at home here and why I have been so enthusiastic over the past few days because I feel like that it's a good match. I feel like they stand for the same things that I do so that's, why this has been so enjoyable for me and again thank you to you guys and you've actually inspired me is equally as hopefully have inspired you by sitting here and asking such good question and answering some good questions. And we've learned a lot about personalities this week, and I love just seeing how everyone comes from a different walk of life. But more importantly, I love seeing how through diverse products and reinventing yourself, how we can all come to a common ground. So it doesn't matter where you come from. But it only it only matters where you're headed, and it matters about the people that you interact with along the way.
