“I’m impressed! This book deserves to be read and re-read. Most books I’m asked to review rehash old ideas, often taking away rather than adding value. Your book is a shining exception to that rule. I honestly don’t know how you packed so much solid value in such a tiny package.

“What I love most is that you don’t oversimplify the skills and attitudes it takes to create results. AND you make those skills and attitudes appealing and accessible. I’m honored to know you, my friend.”

Molly Gordon, Marketing Coach for Accidental Entrepreneurs

“Bruce’s Life Design coaching approach goes beyond coping with hard times. He helps you embrace life’s complexity, and use it as raw material to create results. If life gives you lemons, you don’t just make lemonade — you make a delicious lemon soufflé. I use some of Bruce’s tools and can testify to their power.”

Vicki Robin, Million-Selling Coauthor of Your Money Or Your Life

“Bruce’s personal coaching approach is great for creators. When I dream up a project, I must not only think through the steps I need to take, but actually take them – even those I dread or resist. I also focus on everyday and work-related communication so that it does what I really want it to do.”

Rey Carr, Editor, Peer Bulletin

Elkin points out that challenging times offer great opportunity. Many know that, but still get stuck. This ebook provides practical advice for getting going – and knowing where to go!”

Bob Stilger, Author: “Healthy and Resilient Communities” blog, resilient

“I really love this book — it is about how real people can deal with the mess and complexity of real life. It is about resilience and personal action — helping you to reframe things so that you can do something about them.

“Thrive! gives practical examples, simple models and is written from an appreciative perspective — What is good about me (and my situation)? What do I do well? What gives me joy? What really matters to me?

“Bruce introduces skills you need in order to rise above “wicked” problems (messy, complex problems we all occasionally face). He helps you set up a structure for creating real results. And case studies that show how others have done this, so you see how you do it, too.

“Bruce is an accomplished personal coach and this comes across in his writing. His ‘why‘ is enabling others to bloom.”
