    Hello Stephen,

    I was reading your blog and wanted to thank you for sharing your ideas.
    Your article reminded me of a conference I attended for “Women In
    Technology” (WITI) in Los Angeles, CA last year. At that conference I had
    the awesome opportunity to meet Marcia Wieder.

    She and I spoke about overcoming fears to achieve our dreams.
    Although my time with her was brief, I learned from “America’s Dream Coach”
    about the importance of stepping out of my comfort zone so I could achieve
    my dreams. At that time I really did not know who this precious woman was
    but later learned she had been on Oprah and PBS-TV.

    Marcia’s brief touch on my life made a great impact on me. Recently I
    discovered her blog at http://www.dreamcoachdirect.com/ and
    a Maui Dream Retreat she is giving away!!! The Maui Dream
    Retreat includes a week in Maui with Marcia, roundtrip airfare, and accomodations!!
    I thought you might be interested in what she had to say as well.

    May all of our dreams come true!!

    Gina

    Marcia is a good friend of mine…now. I met her during my Creative America tour back in 2003 when I interviewed people for the book. She is a wonderful, generous, and dynamic woman.

    I visited your site. I love what you are doing. Keep up the good work!!
