A funny thing happened when I was on my way to Teach my Seminar at an ISS Trade Show.
I was standing in line and heard Balboa being discussed…what I heard was…“Balboa, they really know their Sh**t, but when you need to find it in a video later, it takes too much time…”  From that, the Balboa Bits were born!

Announcing In-depth, but short 3 to 7-minute concise tips, techniques, and Secrets. 30 years of Balboa’s techniques and tips separated into short videos that will instantly solve your problems. Just click on the video you need, Watch, Apply, and you are ready for production!  Or if you prefer. read the transcript, a step-by-step written instruction!
