    I tuned in this week while I designed! Thanks for the shout out. And that book sounds pretty sweet; I might have to pick it up! :)

    Hi Eric –

    Thanks for taking the time to listen to us ramble on. Hope we made sense and thanks for writing a great book and sharing your stories and struggles. Your personality, stories, expertise and tone of writing makes the book memorable and motivating!

  • Hi Liz and Niki,

    I’m just listening in now–about half way through. It’s a real treat to hear you talk about the book and share what you got out of it!

    Thanks once again for taking the time to read the book, and even more so for creating the podcast.

    The book took an enormous amount of time to write. As a result, it makes talks like yours very rewarding to listen to!

    If you’re ever near smashLAB, please drop by and say “hi”!

    OK–now I have to get back to listening!

    All the best!

    Eric
