They will also gain some practical ideas on how to blog or social media can be used. Supplies needed – bring a highlighter, paper, pen/pencil, laptop (full battery).

Additional Services offered by Carol: Up to 6 private consultations after the event. This consultation will allow an author to bring their record keeping or tax return (or questions and/or other related business paperwork) and receive tips and advice from a professional. This consultation will allow for “more” private questions on taxes and record keeping that one may not want to discuss or ask in a Q & A session. Each consultation will be 20 minutes.
