Unique Workshops

I was really impressed with your intro story to the B.R.A.K.E.S. workshop. It was a great hook with a tantalizing intro to the content without giving it all away in the first moments. I took notes on the structure of your outline, lady! :)

Letting us know to expect a sales pitch at the end prevents anyone from feeling like the whole thing was a set up for a bait and switch.

And then of course the content was really good.
