This podcast is the first ever Q and A session! The questions came from emails that I received. In the near future there will be a 800 number set up for questions that from what i understand will record the voicemail on my computer so I can actually play the questions. I don’t have this set up yet but am looking into the different companies that offer it and trying to get it all figured out so hopefully that will be an option soon. In the meantime, email me anytime with any questions.
