Sorry, I haven’t posted in awhile. I’ve been caught in some other areas of my life.

I wanted to let you know of a great review that I just read in “America’s Best” Magazine for my e-manuals “How Your Business Can Survive And Prosper In A Recession.” (If you haven’t heard of it, they serve as “the #1 resource for the small business owner.”)

It’s a VERY positive review except that Charles was distracted by some punctuation mistakes that my editor and I missed. 🙂

I appreciate that Charles took 5 paragraph’s to really give a full review of all that my e-manuals contain.

He ends with this conclusion on my e-manuals…

“Survive and Prosper in a Recession is both educational and inspirational. The advice is practical; based on real world experience. Unfortunately, that credibility is dinged just a bit by the mechanical issues that can be found throughout. Business advice books should have a professional cast to them and that is hard to achieve when there are distracting mistakes in punctuation. That sole complaint aside, Survive and Prosper in a Recession is an excellent read and well worth the price, at $57 for both of the volumes. For more information, visit”
