    Thanks, Pat. You’ve been doing an awesome job of getting the word out there–an inspiration to many of my newsletter readers who see you on another radio or tv show every week!

    Hi Lisa, great information today. I read the article on networking. I totally agree with giving your book away for free. I have been doing just that and cultivating wonderful friendships and they in turn tell so many others about you and your book.

    Look forward to the rest of the week, Blessings Pat
