We’re trying something new for tomorrow’s webinar: instead of a PDF, we’re turning our “Link Bank” into a Blog Post! That way, we can edit the list and add resources that are brought up during the webinar! We can also use this as a place to post webinar follow-ups.
It’s just a “test run”; but we hope that it makes finding the resources easier for everyone!
