I am a little biased here, but I am so proud of my amazing wife! She had a vision and attacked it with gusto. Her drive and focus during this whole process is incredible. Also, it’s a pretty good book ;-). All the feedback I have received from friends and family has been full of praise. I’m so proud of my Jenny!!! Hope you enjoy the book as well and may it lead you to that rare find in the wild!!!
