Good course, great trainerMar 17, 2017

There's a lot of great information in this webinar. Most of it is geared toward completing and improving one's profile to increase visibility in directory search results and appeal to clients. That makes it very similar to the "small group profile review" webinar I had already attended, so I didn't get much new information from this one. Either webinar is well worth taking, though.

Thank you - course very well deliveredMar 17, 2017

Thank you Maria. You are a very good trainer. The webinar was an eye-opening exercise. I had watched the Joe video but, of course, with the practical examples you used to illustrate, the points were made really clear.
