Academy Preparation Questionnaire

This is the beginning of several weeks of exciting preparation for a fast, intense, and rewarding class in faceting, and related disciplines and issues. During the class, the spirit is MOMENTUM, so we’re going to begin building that right now.

It’s important for newer faceters to let go of any trepidation or intimidation they may have, realizing that faceting isn’t really any more complicated than driving a car. So, you’re going to do just fine!

Likewise, it’s important for experienced faceters to let go of what they’ve been doing in the past. I do things in very systematic ways because they’re easy to learn, reliable, and efficient – just like the martial arts I teach. Your progress will be very fast when you try my methods for a week…

Experience has shown that care and completeness in this survey correlates strongly with overall success at the Academy. Please invest in your success by doing this carefully and completely.
