Vicki’s information was very useful and even novel.  She suggested ideas that I had never thought of or heard before.

Great session, thank you! Practical, authentic, and honest.

Great information, very useful, very hands-on, very enlightening to the point of it also being a great kick in the butt and not a typical webinar to sell something!!

Thank you very much for such as great presentation and generous sharing!

Authentic, grounded presenter, practical information.  Cate kept the text-conversation connected with Vicki really well.

Absolutely.  Outstanding.  Sincere, honest, helpful, knowledgeable.  Thank you all for organizing, hosting and sharing.

Excellent class. Cate did an excellent job making sure all questions were fielded, while Vicki answered all questions with expertise and a great willingness to answer the tough ones.

I took notes the entire time. I am quite on my own here and this kind of help is so valuable to me. I love the way Vicky is not holding back. I find that some topics like strategies and fee structures are protected by others in the industry.
