How fun! I can't wait to try it.
In this day and age, people are tired of dry sales pitches. They want to read / watch / listen to things that allow them to experience emotions, that inspire them to take action.

Yes, it turned to spring at 12:57 p.m. early this morning. It’s a good time to do a little spring cleaning. Clear out the mistakes and the old stuff that’s no longer working for you.
