Hello Ms. Hendey, I am excited about your webinar. It will be my first ever! I have been involved in a moms group for about 10 years. I find myself in the leadership position and thirsty for some new ideas. However, I must say, my first question would be...Why is the MOMS webinar scheduled for 3-4pm??? I am a mother of five and that is my busiest hour of the day!!! Still, I am looking forward to it :) Peace and Blessings, Mrs. Alyssa Touey
