Someone atrepparttar 149504 Power Point presentation she delivered heard her speak and asked for her to become an instructor at their school.

As for my opportunities from conferences, I’ve written for Final Call, an International magazine, and garnered national attention through radio interviews on shows such as Tom Pope’s and Dr. Jeff Gardere’s. Furthermore, I have been able to conduct workshops nationally, and speak at large conferences. I not only have sold books atrepparttar 149505 back ofrepparttar 149506 room, I have gained new clients for my literary services or my literary agency at conferences.
