Eight Lunches Update

Folks… WOW.  I asked for help and you came through, thank you!

I closed the comments from the original post because feedback is coming in and I need to digest it all and take time to rework the book.  This will be the third draft… and then I’ll send it out for another round of review.  Anyone who leaves a comment on THIS post will get an email with that draft, hopefully in the next few weeks.

I’ll share some feedback that I’ve gotten as soon as I get permission from the people who have given feedback.

    I loved your presentation last evening @ NSA Mountainwest. It was clear, concise and engaging. It reminded me of one of my favorite philosopies. Less is more. I would love to read your work so far on eight lunches. I mentioned your project to Russell Lookadoo as well.

    My experience as an entepenuer has taught me many things “Not To DO” when you own your own business. I am certain this new project will be a smashing success for you!
