Thanks for the recap Erin. I'm glad your first salon event was successful and hope you will do many more in the future (different parts of the country too!).
Have you considered capping the number of people for an event like this at maybe 10 or 15 people instead of 20 - 30? Might allow for a few more specific questions per person, and maybe you could do them more often for fewer people at a time.
But whatever works. Just glad you're doing them!
