So we're going to get into the details of that change, and what Laura has done with her business. But first, let me introduce my co-host for today, copywriter and launch strategist, Brittany McBean.

Rob: Yeah, right, if Kira decides not to come back, you can just stay. Brittany: I'm taking her spot, watch out. Rob: Exactly. You've been warned Kira.
