I've just read some excerpts on your site from your book, and I love the way you've crafted the stories. There's so much personality and such a strong point of view from each person, you've done an incredible job! Thanks for the compliment on Life History Books - I completely love my job (when it's not driving me crazy). Our work isn't so different... we're both listening in on other people trying to give us answers to all the big questions.
Bruce, Thanks for the friend request. Happy to connect with you here. I went to your page but could not locate any information about you, your work, your philosophy, etc. This is a great site for making some really valuable connetions.
Thanks for "friending" me, Bruce! And for your willingness to be on the show. Our special guests are nationally known speakers/personalities, best-selling authors, etc. If you send the specs about your book and your national notoriety to us, we'll happily consider it! Send to email@example.com.
