    Hello Everyone,

    My Name Is John Dow new/novice level to game design and game production. Might of seen my post for Dragon Arc Studio. Anyway since I'm starting out I've been looking for ways to maximize my abilities as an indie developer for game designs, mechanics, programming, artistic works, PR, marketing and audio. Then through my searching I ran across this program.

    It looks compelling and looks like it would help a lot for starting out. But I'm uncertain and was hoping that you guys might know about this program to recommend it or not. Because if I cant find anyone to join the team I'm still going to make my game even if its solo. So I've search for ways to help with that. Is this program any good?

    I found a little info on Rick here:
    https://geekandprosper.com/what-entrepreneurs-wish-theyd-known-online-business/

    And he seems to have quite a bit of entrepreneurial spirit on his FB page:
    https://www.facebook.com/rickdavidsonaction/

    And he has a bunch of connections in Linkedin with some very good experience:
    https://www.linkedin.com/in/davidsonrick

    So Id say he looks like a trusted source. :) But, no, Ive never done business with him. I mean you are basically hiring a consultant which can typically be around $50+ an hour and he supposedly has a secret FB page where you can ask him questions directly. His 12 hours of videos already surpasses that. I suppose a really good question to ask him would be what can his 12 hours of videos offer you that isnt already offered in his public videos.
