One big Infomercial. They touch on a lot of good points, but there is No Depth. But if you call 1 800 Art of Charm, you can "apply" to learn more. Apply? Really? And no prices anywhere.

Seek the emotion. When they ask a question. Don't just say "yeah" State the positive, and ask what is it about the topic they enjoy. This way they will feel excited and talk about that emotional bits
