Loved this video! Thank you for the advice!

The content was well worth an hour of my time, as I have several key takeaways. Thank you for sharing the knowledge you've gained through experience. The presentation was more intimate & engaging by Tracie moving around, even if that left her less than ideally lit.

Poorly lit, one camera angle, and waaaaaaay too long!
