Meet Cathy... My Wife and Business Partner

   
 Many of you have already met or interacted with Cathy, but I would be remiss if I neglected to share with you that she is my greatest supporter of all, as well as my wife,and business partner. Back in 2014, As my business increased, I came to the point that I could not teach daily, create new art, prepare lessons, schedule seminars, travel to destinations, write books or other instructional products without finding some help.  So I asked Cathy to leave a job she enjoyed and join me in our enterprise.  Cathy is the one who answers most of our emails,  fills your orders and schedules and executes our events.   She is the most organized, efficient person I have ever known, and has the friendliest and professional telephone voice. People connect with her as if they were acquainted for years. I am humbled by her dedication, innovation, and hard work. It would be impossible to operate with out her irreplaceable contribution.
