Talk tomorrow,



  1. It is lucky I saw your post! You’re a lifesaver! I didn’t get any ‘advance” email like I usually do! Yikes, my first choices were already gone. But it is too good to miss. 🙂 I will have to go back to re-select workshops because I got shunted to different sessions at checkout when things filled up while I was finishing the process and I wasn’t going to miss hitting finish and lose even more selections.


  2. Oh Wendy,

    I feel your pain. It takes a lot of time to register, so you have to keep going or you will lose what you chose. Better to go back afterwards and hope you can update to the things you want. So glad I helped remind you.

    See you there,

  3. Look forward to your session, Kathy, at the conference! The NJ conference is the best ever & happy to write that I’m in, with my top choices!
