  • Excellent presentation. The best I've seen on this topic. You should publish your work for fee or free even-and add affiliate links of other products and resources you use and recommend to monetize it. Your work is just that good! Plus your presentation was jazzy...it had rhythm and flow. I don't know who is the king on this topic, but I say you are the queen. And perhaps there is no king-like the queen of England. Great presentation, Julie.
