  1. Hi Aaron,
    I love seeing your videos. However, this one has no sound, after the introduction. It doesn’t seem to be my computer, so I thought I should send you a note about it. Do I have to subscribe to hear it?
    Keep up the great work,

    1. Hi Larry,

      I work with Aaron on his site. We just tested this issue on multiple computers and it seems to be working properly for us. I just wanted to pass that along to you in case there was either something we are missing or to notify you that the issue might be on your end.
