" Just wanted to thank you again for the talk on Saturday. It was SO on-target for me, since I'm writing web copy for a neurosurgery practice—as we speak!

I have raw text from them that is similar to your exercise material, and I need to make it web-worthy. Your workshop got me focused and answered a lot of questions."
