    Hi Micky,

    I sent you a comment before and you e-mailed me back very quickly, unfortunately I must have deleted it by mistake. Please forgive me ( iphones can be a hassle). I have another question for you about setting up a Fan Page. I started and got lost then the receptionist tried but it keeps defaulting back to our regular page. Is that because you can only have one or the other in a business name? Please help as we are lost.

    Sincerely,

    Micky,
    Great actionable ideas. I’ll be reviewing with my business partner to determine what we’ll use. Have you considered putting this into a pdf for easy download and printing options? I’d do it in a heartbeat.

    BTW…it looks like you know Alejandro Reyes. He’s a good friend of mine…amazing guy, right?!

    Thanks for sharing,
    Shawn
