Two Days To Build Your Practice

I haven’t written for the sake of promotion since last August when I went on my launch/promotional blitz and hated it. Those of you who hung in there with me through that, thanks!

I'm taking a few minutes out of my maternity leave (June is sleeping) to tell you about a super-fun and educational get together with Joe Sanok, Jane Carter, me, and hopefully you.

Something exciting is brewing…specifically, a possible “Brew Your Practice” event this September, if enough of you express interest!
