    Thank you for a very imformative chat. Meagan had many tips and ideas which I can’t wait to implement. It’s obvious she really knows her stuff. I found myself reading the comments and thinking, “great idea” or “why didn’t I think of that before?” My friends were reading them with me and were very excited, also. Great questions by a lot of people. Thank you for posting the transcript so that I can refer back to it often.
    When’s the next chat? Can’t wait!
