    Amazing presentation! I love your energy and I agree with you that it is important to repeat some of the great tools as sometimes we put them away . It is nice to remember them and take them out and put it in our tool box again! Thank you! I personally know Valentina Gonzalez and she is amazing! I encourage everyone to follow her in twitter and read her latest book as well. Thank you I didn't feel the hour!
