Welcome to another #FreeformFriday where I share my random ramblings about what’s happening on the podcast, and what I’ll be talking about on today’s Facebook Live broadcast at 12pm EST. Last week I broadcasted at 4pm, but I’ll admit it was a bit late in the day and if you happened to join me, you may have noticed it was a bit noisy in my backyard! So today, I’m back on track at 12pm EST, talking about the book and giveaway I shared in episode 032 with Carol Sulcoski. Also, in this episode I ask you a question that I’d like you to answer in the comments today on my video. I hope you’ll chime in on today’s convo!
