This is what Faye, an attendee from the June airing of this webinar, had to say:
"This was by far one of the most engaging and comprehensive webinars I have seen today. Miranda, your presentation was seamless and well done. And your cinematographer did an excellent job as well. I am looking forward to incorporating some of your positioning techniques that I have yet to try or have abandoned over the years. I will be looking for more seminars presented by you in the future! ... THANKS!!!"
