Teach Adults To Get Results

Deep Dive Master Class

Think of the dashboard as your home base as well as “library” for all digital files related to your Deep Dive Master Class. The dashboard will also house session audio files and notes.

The dashboard is not interactive, therefore, if you have questions, want to share a resource, or are looking for “tribe” support, please use our FaceBook group.

Here is the ZOOM link that we'll use across all four session: https://zoom.us/j/3303101040
