“I’ve heard you say some of these but in every case, when I read them I hear your voice. And what I really love about this is the fact that you actually live these out, these are not just words on a page but in working with you over the years I know these to be genuine. With so many phony people in life pretending to be something they are not, you are the real deal.”
Jeff Fedorchak, TRUGREEN

“A personal story: Last weekend, we had a couple from Heber City via Mexico and have worked for the Park City Resort for some years and have had a rather hard time getting accepted in the community. Your book is on our living room table and when Jose opened it and saw the inscription it led to a great conversation about opportunity and what you would need to do to become successful. You, my friend are touching other people like Jose and many others through this fantastic book on what it takes to be a success.”

“Lily’s fav is “it’s nice to be important, but important to be nice.” She’s said it about 5 times on her own. I always loved patience + persistence = success, but inspired by your positive people tip. So true positive people always get noticed!”
“One of the tips that really resonated with me was to always “Dream Big”. It is true, many of our limitations are self-imposed; sometimes I am guilty for limiting myself do to my past experiences and internalizing the low expectations society has for me. That is why I love that you encourage others to share their personal stories. It shows our strength, resilience, and perseverance that unite us. I have a new “I can do it” attitude.”
