Let me know what you think!
Yes, I agree with you about these templates. I wasn’t going to buy them. But I purchased shortly after the Tuesday nights coaching call using the link you shared. I appreciate the heads up on a good
product. Especially the tips to create the swipe files of the different animations and such. Good ideas.
I already have some plans on how to use them. I really appreciate the enhanced information you provide on these products with your videos and sharing tips. That part is really helpful.
