Really Life Changing Stuff

Hi Robin, Chris and Nikki!

I wanted to take a minute to send our thanks to you for coming out to share the First Things First clinic with us at the AMPOWER Women's Retreat. I was blown away by the impact that it had on the participants. Chris, you were just tremendous! The feedback that we received was very positive and a few said it was the one thing that meant the most to them overall. I have to say that one of my favorite quotes from the entire weekend was once one of the participants worked with Chris to get onto the floor, she said, "Wow! I haven't been down here in four years!"

Really life changing stuff. Thank you again for your time and talent!
