Deb Evans and the IFA were kind enough to host a TweetChat today, getting the 4-1-1 from the IFA on their social involvement. Next week is Fran Social Camp and we’re so excited to be a part of it this year. You can get more information at the FranSocialCamp website. Registration is still open and very inexpensive at $149!
