Happy November!  I hope you’re all doing well, staying warm, and are cuddled up by the fire listening to this podcast.  I’m kicking off this episode with a celebration of my recent podcast milestone (300 episodes)! Thank you all so much for being engaged listeners, sending me your questions, and participating in this special community.


I’m also sharing some business updates, and then I’m reaching back into the mailbag.
