“I’d like to tell you why I think Elizabeth Cottrell is the perfect person to have written this book. It was over a decade ago when I first met Elizabeth in person. I was a new speaker at an event in Atlanta and she and I sat at the same table for lunch. I soon realized my good fortune. During this brief encounter, Elizabeth put me at ease and my nervousness and fear dissipated. Her smile and words landed on me in a way that would connect us forever. In her natural manner, she comforted, encouraged, and inspired me to allow my spirit to shine. As I took the stage to speak the following day, I found her in the audience and pretended I was only speaking to her.
“Thank you, Elizabeth, and I am forever grateful to be connected with you.”
