Barbara: I saw the fund raising program for KQED, Channel 9, last Sunday, and I really was very impressed with what you said. This is the first time I have every seen you on T.V. Do you have a regularly scheduled program on KQED?

Hi, Barbara: > > I was amused to see you on KTEH saying 'self improvement doesn't work' and, minutes later, to watch Wayne Dyer telling people how to improve themselves. I find your approach extremely refreshing. [This message has been edited by BarbaraSher (edited December 21, 2001).]

Dear Barbara: Thanks for your suggestion. Also for your inspiration. Until I flipped on KTEH the other night, I hadn't known about your work. You remind me of the Good Fairy in Cinderella! CA

I saw you for the first time on PBS and gravitated toward your message. I am a self-help junkie. Brian Tracy, Robbins, Carnegie, Napoleon Hill, I felt they were all missing something. Then I read some passages from Thoreau. I am thinking that most people who are great at what they do, probably do not force themselves to rewrite their goals every morning. They also probably do not consciously do positive chants etc. So I am thrilled that I found you and your refreshing way of thinking. I wish I had this info before I tried to force myself to change my life.

Dear Barbara, I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and last weekend I saw you on PBS. It was great. You are down to earth and speak to the basics. No doubt think you’ve heard this before, but you look like my mother. Not only that, but you seem to be the missing encouraging, and wise woman that I wish my mother had grown into. Much thanks.
