Happy April! Tomorrow at 3pm EST is the next Heart-To-Heart with dM!
In case you don't know, Heart-To-Heart is my complimentary monthly call -- a chance for you to ask me anything you want about small business success. I am a straight shooter, so you can count on me to give you the hard answers to tough questions, or to refer you to someone who can.
Register for tomorrow's Heart-To-Heart here so you can get the call info. Join us -- the chat room will be open, as always!
And don't forget to mark your calendar for my next exclusive IBN member and Protege webinar event on April 10 -- designed to answer your questions about Pinterest and whether it can be useful for your business. Here are the details!
