Greetings,


Section: From Author Donna Jodhan:

Stop! Take a deep breath! Then take a few seconds to read on! My name is Donna Jill Jodhan and I am the author of the Crime Crusher Audio Series with Detective DJ. Since 2010 I have been helping others to find new and unique ways to do such things as stimulate their creative juices, develop their imaginations, and inspire and motivate them to turn their dreams into reality. It's all about taking the time to relax and recharge, and it's both easier and far more inexpensive than you think. In fact, it's all about being able to think outside the box, think well, and think far ahead!

My method has proven to be extremely effective and I would like to invite you to try it. All you need to do is take a few seconds to listen and allow yourself to think, dream, and reach for the stars! Listening is one of the very few things in life that costs nothing, and you would be amazed to learn how listening can go a long way in helping you to become a lot better at what you do. I call this my technique for more powerful thinking and it is working!

So why not give me a chance to help you improve your imagination and follow your dreams? Visit me at www.donnajodhan.com, and please feel free to share my newsletters with your family and friends.

With very best wishes,
Donna J. Jodhan AKA Detective DJ
