My employer (and friend, Amanda C of Gift Wrapped and Gorgeous) recently leant me your book to read... I just wanted to email you and tell you how inspired I feel after reading it.
I have always felt compelled to invent something, and although I had a 'lightbulb moment' a few months ago, I had let my enthusiasm fade due to a severe lack of confidence, and finances.
After reading your book, I now feel compelled to follow my idea through, as you have truely inspired me! Like most young people, I really lack confidence in myself and my ideas, but your story has shown me that anything is possible if I put my mind to it. Deep down, I am a really determined person and if I put my mind to something, I strive to achieve my goal to the best of my ability.
To cut a very long story short, I suffer from severe anxiety, and often have panic attacks when I am stressed, or confronted with food. Although I am only 23, I have experienced various episodes of emotional trauma in my life, and it has caught up with me over the past 4 years. This has really held me back, but I am determined to fight my way through this difficult time and deal with the issues from my past that are haunting me.
I wish you and your businesses the best of luck for the future...you are truely inspirational, and deserve every success!
Best Wishes, Leanne
Your book does have the power to inspire people...Ive read some testimonials from other people and they obviously feel the same way that I do about it! Words are really powerful when they are written from the heart.

Following our brief meeting at Business Scene in York a couple of months ago, your book has been on my "to read list" for a few weeks. Finally, during the past few days I opened and read it. An inspirational story told from the heart and I congratulate you on your achievements, tenacity and ability to overcome what life has thrown at you.
Now I have read it I am sending it to my Daughter who is about to give birth to her first child in a few weeks and who has a business idea she wishes to develop. I perceive and know she has a goodly measure of your tenacity and passion to make things happen! I also believe reading your book will add significant encouragement to her ideas. I thank you for sharing your thoughts with so many people via "Mother of Invention" and wish you every future success
