Feedback from previous Zoom Workshop!
One of my sisters in Hawaii wanted to attend, but is not tech-savvy. Are you going to make the recording available? for a limited time? for a fee? I'd like to send it to her in a format she can easily view on her phone. Just let me know what's possible.
Overall, think the Zoom experience went really well, and the more you do it, the easier it will flow.
could easily see your screen - - demonstration of sites / online resources - - as opposed to when in the library
being able to see it on MY computer screen reinforced the "I can do this" theme -
I liked being able to "chat" with folks individually, with everyone, and not disturb the workshop
I liked being able to "disappear" / turn off the camera as needed
I liked having participants from around the world, very cool!
the social aspect of it, missed seeing and talking with other participants face-to-face - - before, at break, after, getting to know them - - maybe next time you can have folks briefly introduce themselves at the beginning...? break the ice between participants...?

More Coaching & Collaboration Success Stories
"Look, your coaching techniques work! Thanks for giving me the kick in the pants to write the book. It has helped in giving me a lot of exposure. I am featured with my daughter in the September issue of Fortune Small Business Magazine. The article is called "Search and Prosper".
You can see an online excerpt of the article HERE
"Working with Walt on a business level was an amazing experience! His keen insight and passion while coaching me through the process was great. He knows when to push a little and give a little without you losing momentum. His recommendation on the [first edition] cover design as well as the professional set up of the website was right on point. Couple that with the timing of the subject matter, helped me to make two pre-order sales--one print copy and one e-book-- in less than 24 hours of launch--and the book [wasn't] even printed yet! That floored me. I can only imagine what the upcoming results will be!"
--Chief Warrant Officer Raymond, author of Rucksack to Briefcase: a civilian-side job-hunting guide for service members and their families
To Walt: "Man, I can't thank you enough for pulling more out from me than I thought I had!"
"I wrote and published THREE books and writing more. It was an impossible childhood dream but your workshop and coaching made it possible!"--Riza Ramos (www.rizaramosbooks.com)
"Thanks to you I did learn a lot about how to get published; and... dealing with what is basically laziness, what you said about time reminded me that it's really up to me to get it going. There's this old saying back home: 'if you want to do it, there are so many ways; if you don't want to do it, there are so many excuses.' The workshop was very helpful, and you were very informative. PS: Inspired by your workshop, I've returned again to my novel-in-progress, and this time I'm also coming up with a new plan that will, I hope, help me deal with the daily grind instead of just allowing it to sweep me away."--Zaldy Dandan, Editor of the Marianas Variety Newspaper
"Lots of good stuff...(eg. why we don't write, the courage & discipline angle, completion vs perfection, working from lists when the creative process actually takes place, the book-building exercise)"--Gary L.
"Hi Walt, I definitely enjoyed your workshop-in fact, I felt that (at 3 hours) it was way too short. I wanted more time! It definitely exceeded my expectations. You delivered an insightful and resourceful presentation, and were also entertaining (not boring). Thank you for sharing."--Della Angel
"I SO much enjoyed today's session and the way you presented it (and yourself). Very inspiring and encouraging to start learning new "stuff" and get started. I can't wait for your next workshop. KEEP GOING !!! :-) Kind Regards"-- Sarka
