Hi Everyone! Hope you all are doing well, and finding ways to stay productive and connected. Need a dose of community? Stop by the Write On Online Facebook Group to participate in daily threads. Plus, keep an eye on The D*E*B Method Facebook page for announcements, as well as live-streams, links, and inspiration.
Speaking of live streams … in April, I added a cousin to the #GoalChat family. Now, every Monday at 4pm PT, #GoalChat Live broadcasts from the Mango Publishing Facebook page. Watch the #GoalChat live replays on virtual events, staying healthy, and most recently video with guest Steve Dotto of Dotto Tech. Enjoy the conversation in real time or catch up later.
