Goulet Q&A Episode 37, Open Forum

I'm sorry to say that you're stuck with just me this week for Goulet Q&A. The message was sent loud and clear that you love having Rachel with me in the video, but she just couldn't work it out in her schedule to be here with me this morning. This week's theme is an Open Forum, and I always enjoy the variety of questions I receive. I ended up getting so many, I could only answer about half of what I received. But I'll be saving the rest. Enjoy!
