  1. Love this video! Thank you for answering such a great question, it can be intimidating asking a CD questions in a room full of peers. Great free tips, keep em’ coming.

  2. I love this advice!Thank you for reminding us that an opinion is just that–An Opinion. I never thought to ask if the CD would clarify, if I do receive negative feedback. You’ve given me some great questions to ask in my next workshop. So helpful!
