Thank you for nurturing our development by providing EVERYTHING you do, including the "Talk With A Pro" series. I am so grateful to have my wonderful stable of internal coaches (David Guzzone, Jay Snyder, Carolee Goodgold, Kristin Price, Linda Jones, YOU, and on) whispering in my ear whenever I approach copy and step into my closet to work or practice.
Having Dan Lenard on with us last night was genius! ... took a webinar with him a couple of months ago that was hugely valuable and, as you said, he's an all around great guy! I sent "a specimen" (my Scholastic audition) to him after the tele session and he got right back to me about making some adjustments in my set up!
The word in my head in light of all of this is .... PROFESSIONALISM. You and the entire staff at Edge continuously demonstrate it and encourage it to develop in us. As I see it, professionalism from some of last night's participants was missing. Conversely, and playing "devil's advocate," maybe being home in one's fuzzy slippers causes us to forget that we're actually in a class and should respect and listen to the "teacher" who has something important to provide for us all.
