The Owl and The Beetle
I have recently been preparing a portfolio of workshops for release in the coming months, and I was excited by the response to my request for help on LinkedIn in exchange for a free 90-minute session with me.
I value your opinion and would like to offer you an offer. If you are interested, reply to this newsletter with a few lines, and I will send you an email with my drafts and four to five quick questions. This should take 30 minutes at most. In exchange, when my workshops become available, I will provide you with a 90-minute one-on-one session on any workshop of your choice, free of charge. Please consider this offer; it's a deal!
