BYRD IS THE WORD. I was just singing Eric Byrd's praises in a Facebook group for virtual assistants, and I realized that I don't express my appreciation for him TO him nearly often enough. Every meeting with Eric leaves me energized, focused, and thoughtful. I can never thank him enough for what he's done to help me with my business.
