Shawn – Thanks so much for being there for NAWIC last night. You are so awesome and inspiring.” Your new friend, Diana

“Your story really hit me and therefore thought you would be excellent as one of the panel members for our upcoming national meeting.” Kathleen

“We received great feedback regarding the State Meeting and specifically about you and your discussion and the book!” Thanks for everything. Sherry, President

“Shawn entertained and educated us as she walked us through what made her decide to write her book and the trials and tribulations of writing it and getting it published (for all you writers out there, she says writing the book is 10% of the work involved, the remaining 90% is finding the right publisher, editing and promoting). Shawn’s book has taken off and was one of the SWAG items given out at the Oscars this year. We were entertained with a few stories about her experience at the Oscars and finally were able to purchase the book and Shawn kindly signed them all.

“If you have kids, you need this book! Even if you don’t have kids, you need this book. Texting is here to stay and has become a valuable communication tool; don’t get left in the dust. Shawn will guide you through! “ Rae Lynn

“Hi Shawn … so pleased to meet you last Saturday at the Valley of the Sun Insurance national meeting. You’re terrific insight and book really identified with me.” Donna, Social Media Architect & Co-Founder
