  • Got it. Thanks so much for your response. Much appreciated.

    Sent you an email Paula! I was on my phone when I saw this and couldn’t get it to reply.

  • Thanks, Chris. I was also interested in the advertising copy writing book that Brian mentioned as I didn’t that that title. I don’t know where the show notes are located. Oh, sorry. I see it now. All set! You do great shows and I always look forward to them.

    Hi Paula! The FB group URL was in the show notes but I’ll post it here as well: https://www.facebook.com/groups/407283052948198/. Part of the commitment to being in the group is buying and reading the book. I don’t think you have to read it before you join. But reading the book eliminates a lot of the common questions that get asked in the group. It’s way worth the 9.99

  • I didn’t get that Facebook address, can you post here? Also, if you haven’t read the Brian’s book yet, can we still join the FB group?
