I Want To Thank Everyone!

Thank you everyone! Because of the good advice I received here on the boards, my business The Diabetic Pastry Chef is becoming wildly successful! Per your advice, I started a blog less than a year ago and implemented some of your other suggestions, but I never got around to monetizing it. I just from time to time would add some new posts and recipes. Well about a month ago, a large well known international pharmaceutical company happened upon my blog and offered to sponsor me to do baking demonstrations for them. Then I was contacted by a Food Network chef who wants me to devise recipes and write a newsletter and articles for his website. I signed up to give classes at a community college and I'm getting new offers everyday! I've also begun to write a cookbook. So thank you! thank you! thank you! I also want to give special thanks to Soni , who graciously gave me tons of free advice and to Barbara Sher for this website and all the books she's written over the years that have kept me motivated.

Hi, Stacey! I'm so thrilled to read about your stellar success! All of the books that I read say that it happens this way. Even Thoreau's famous quote applies here: I have learned, that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. Your amazing story inspires all of us to keep advancing confidently toward our own dreams! Congratulations, and best wishes for your continued success!

Stacey, Congratulations on all your success. This is a marvelous example of the power involved in 'getting yourself out there!' By making something tangible out of your ideas, you gave them life and let other people find them... and by extension, you! To anyone out there who is thinking starting a blog 'someday' to write about your passions, re-read Stacey's post and soak up some inspiration, then go start your blog now!!! Thanks again for sharing this success story. Andrew Seltz The Go-To Guy! www.GoToGuyEnterprises.com/blog/
