"I’ve been a part of panels for years. I’ve been an attendee listening to panels. I know BS when I see it and when I hear it. There was no BS on this panel. Kimberly, you did a fine, fine job of attracting people who could speak intelligently and clearly on their subject area; I was honored to be a part of it. I believe you covered the full scope of what topics creatives need to think about in their businesses."
