“I finished your book Secrets of Self-Starters last night. The stories were incredibly inspiring and the exercises so thought-provoking. I really, really enjoyed it.

Between your book and your encouragement when we met in person, I have pretty much decided to go back to school to finish my Bachelor’s Degree. For some reason, I never allowed myself to think about it—it seemed rather pointless and selfish at this time in my life. But now that I have decided to do so, I’m so excited I can hardly wait! Thank you for being so inspirational!!”
