"You have a real skill for delivering from-the-gut/heart wisdom to the business world. You are a kind of minister for sick companies and their employees. Not sick in the physical sense, but sick spiritually and emotionally, and thus ultimately financially. Your messages are needed now more than ever!" - Melanie M., public relations director for a leading international manufacturer
