    I registered last week, got notice for 1st webinar and enjoyed it, but not for following webinars. When I try to register for each individual webinar above it says I am already registered, but need new webinar link for each webinar and not getting them.

    Are the webinars recorded so I can play catch-up with those I had no access to, including today’s? If so, what is the link to them?

    The first webinar was great and very informative.

    Thanx, Boots
