Workshop: As an author and national speaker, Beth attended workshops and read articles and books about building her platform.

Beth's book, Baby Changes Everything: Embracing and Preparing for Motherhood after 35, came out in 2007. She'll share the one thing she wishes she'd known before her book was published, as well as the top three things she learned during her mentorship that helped her establish a strong author/speaker platform for her Mommy-Come-Lately® brand.
