In just a few hours these guys de-mystified much of what has had me frozen in fear and overwhelm about publicity and social media marketing for most of my on-line life.  Now I feel confident to continue expanding my internet presence as well as to reach out to larger networks, client bases, and allies on the world wide web.  All of a sudden marketing has become a lot more fun!  My business is poised for continued success.  Thanks Chris and Michael! – Claire Noelle, Bay Area California, www.YourSensualWisdom.com
