I wanted to send a note to let you know how much I enjoyed
Running a One-Person Business, and Mindfulness and Meaningful Work. I refer to these books often in my work.

Running a One-Person Business is wonderfully practical and easy to read. I have recommended it to other people. The advice you and Ms. Rasberry provide is simple and to the point. The respective backgrounds which you both brought to this book reflected a sense of competence. I have read several other books which you referenced. I figured if you referenced them, they are likely very good also.

Mindfulness and Meaningful Work is very inspirational. I reread several of the essays. This must have been a very rewarding project. Thanks for doing it!!

Michael Riley, San Francisco
