“I love the live stream events. For me its the best way to watch, learn and be inspired. I can’t ever get enough, so for me if they are a tad longer, that’s great, there are always so many good questions!" It's great that you are so forthcoming with info as well. Your generosity and the way you teach are your secrets to your success.“
