"Good news. I reworked my book idea using your approach. I not only sold that book to a publisher, but another, as well! Bruce, without my work with you, learning to break down goals by vision, current reality and action steps, I don't think I could have done it. This is a big boost for me, one that opens up my career in an exciting new direction. Thank you for that."
