“I really like the way Joseph presented the workshop. He really forced us to think on our feet rather than spoon-feeding us.
This workshop is a must for anyone thinking about starting the wood fired pizza business. It became evident that the staff was there to make this experience awesome. The excitement and passion that the staff exuded carried over to us and really made us all eager to learn and participate. I realized early on that the wealth of information they possessed was invaluable.
After the workshop I felt that I had made 25 friends and could contact any one of them to gather information and learn from their experiences. It was a workshop that you regret having to leave, but I now feel empowered by Joseph to move forward and make my dream come true.
Joseph brought out the concept of finding something that excites him and finding a medium through which he could transfer that excitement to others. I guess that was my “aha” moment. That and grabbing the pan handle after it came out of the oven.”
