I have read the eBook, “How To Find, Interact and Work with Manufacturers Who License Art,” and it was so helpful.  In fact, I am ready to do my first submission to a manufacturer.  I can safely say I couldn’t have done it without your help – especially when it came to writing the “tell us about yourself” section.  My mind was blank (what could I possibly say?) until I reviewed your section on how to “help them get to know you.”  The advice was invaluable.  It broke my writer’s block and I found I actually did have things to say that they would want to know.  Thanks for writing these books.  They are just what I needed to get started!

The book has been great!  I have made a couple of calls using your advice by asking questions, finding how they work, etc., and have had a positive response from one company who maybe considering my art for the Spring!  Whoo!  I will continue to carry on calling and will not be phased or put off thanks to your advice.

I am truly motivated and excited about taking control of my own business.  Your sales and marketing section was a huge help.  That was an unfamiliar area for me, but you gave me the confidence I needed to move forward.
