Happy New Year, Everyone!
Hope your 2020 is off to a great start!
There are a bunch of LA-based and online events planned for January in line with the release of Your Goal Guide, so there will not be a regular meeting this month. Still, plenty of opportunities to hang out and connect. See events below, as well as my Mango Author Page. And keep an eye on The D*E*B Method Facebook page for links and live streams throughout the month.
Please send items for the January Newsletter by Monday, January 6.
