    I enjoyed hearing Linda's career story how things have connected for her. She gave some great tips amongst her story that was full of useful information and good humor. I do want to go up to Montreal and visit her studio if anyone else is interested in taking her up on her offer. I have been inspired...and have been out the past two nights! Thank you!

    Linda is a wonderfully engaging speaker, and her stories about how she came to this project and how she carried it out were both entertaining and educational!

    Her work is incredible! An amazing concept was born in her photography to capture gardens in the evening. She was a delight to listen to as well. I learned a lot about the commitment to work on a book and to stay focused on a project. I'm so glad that she kept her vision to create such amazing images.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
