  1. Quite the cliffhanger! I thought that maybe she was getting ready to name the representative companies. Could they be the 5 or 6 that are advertising constantly online? Or are they another group known to industry insiders?

  2. Chuck, you mean the companies Mary mentions at the end of the interview? I’m confident she didn’t mean anything “private” and secret here, there are dozens of licensing websites out there! Hit me up and I will share the list I have (I’m not affiliated with any of these websites and don’t want to come as I’m advertising someone by posting it here) 🙂
