“I joined BRT because there are a lot of videos out there, some good, but also a lot of bad ones. I wanted a straight forward guide that explains in detail the procedures and products that would fit my situation best. BRT guided me from start to finish with no waste of time. And if I had questions I could get quick help on the Facebook Group.”
