    WOW, I feel really blessedd to have found your site and I thank you for all the advise in the blogs. I have been speaking for a few years, but it has always been with me not charging. So now I am looking at setting my fees on a slidding scale as well as presenting the information about me differently.

    Thanks and I look forward to reading your blogs and using some of your services

    You are God’s gift to me Sheila. Thanks to your articles I have started my own blog. I started posting this week. I live in West Africa. I have some challenges to overcome but I am up to the task. With you as mentor, I am sure to go a long way.
