I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for your investments in Lange on my behalf. This morning I gave a presentation at the State OPCMIA conference. It was the first time in a while where I’ve presented standing alone at the front of a large room full of people with a mic. It was the MOST comfortable I’ve EVER felt in that position. I walked out of there after my 45 minute presentation with a high I’ve never experienced. I’ve never, in my opinion, been a strong public speaker, but after today I really saw all of that training come through. I was calm, confident and most importantly I had fun! So…thank you, very much, it was awesome!
