Review of the week:
My 10 seconds of courage will be to go Live!
I just finished listening to episode #20 - Learning to love going live, and I wanted to thank Bonnie for sharing her fears and how she overcame going face to face and live. Great encouragement and inspiration! I appreciate the accompanying free download live call planner. One thing I plan to do in 2023 is to take my 19 seconds of courage and go face to face with my subscribers.
