"Four eyes are better two. A good editor is very, very, very, very important to a writer... Nikki brought her unique gifts to the mix [and] I learned to spot my weaknesses..."

Michel Godet, Freedom is Always There

"I am certain I have put my best foot forward and given myself the best opportunity... More importantly, I have learned things about myself and my goals in the process of working with Nikki. It was not just worth every penny but was priceless."
