When and where will this class be held?
The class is held in a private Facebook group on March 15 – 17th. At 9:00 pm EST, I will go live and discuss and teach. You’ll be able to ask questions live. You’ll even be able to go back and re-watch the recorded class videos for three months. This is not a DIY course.
