Participant feedback: “I liked the small size. It felt like everyone got the chance to say what they wanted to say during the sessions, and we all became familiar with each other’s work. It didn’t feel like we were required to do any “busywork” we didn’t want or need to do. I enjoyed the tone of the webinar sessions a lot. I always felt calm and relaxed during and after them.
And all of the information was really useful! Especially the parts about rates and
finding the right clients.”  – Nina
