    Hello, found you guys through an interview on with Johnny Fd. First let me say thank you for offering so much value! I was pleasantly surprised to see your very detailed case study. Anyhoo, I am viewing content from my phone and for some reason I can’t see your case study videos. Its just a black screen. However, I was able to see your welcome email video when I signed up for the 7 day course. I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 if that helps you. Thanks!!!

    • Hey Nina! Glad to have you on the Screw 🙂

      For the case study we don’t have any videos…we have weekly training videos, but nothing for the actual case study. Sorry about that!

  • Good video, i first saw it on youtube!
