Alex LIVE Monday

In today's environment, many of us have been asked to self-quarantine to defeat this vicious virus. We understand that as creatives, we all need to keep creating and Alex wants to help. Go to our Facebook page Monday at 10am Pacific Time (12 CST  1pm EST) 5pm London.

Alex will let you know about subjects and times at each LIVE event. If you miss it, we will post the video in the next newsletter. Let's all come together, keep safe, and keep creating. It's a great time to binge watch past shows you've missed. Alex will have some suggestions. It's all in fun and for learning and supporting each other.

If you don't have a current membership, try our new 6 month membership at a special price.  

If you are not on Facebook, you can see the LIVE on our channel on YouTube.
