I Am Humbled To Know I Had This Sort of Impact On A Person’s Life

I'm HumbleYesterday my Music Biz Weekly cohost Brian Thompson showed me a link to a article written by Chelsea J. that he came across. I am not sure what to say about this article other than I am humbled to know I had this sort of impact on a person’s life that I have never met. Believe me when I say I just started doing what I believed in and always hoped others would also find value in my articles, but this just makes me smile and feel good inside. Thank you Chelsea J.

Brian Thompson, Chris Guillebeau, as well as Michael Brandvold (another marketing genius), have all become pivotal figures in my life. From the day I began following their blogs, I have gained the confidence and motivation that I once lacked, not just in my music career, but also within my life at home as a mother, daughter, sister, friend, and employee.

I’d like to send a sincere THANK YOU to Brian Thompson, Chris Guillebeau, and Michael Brandvold. You’ve truly opened my eyes!
