      Thank you Mark.

      Success lies with in all of us.

      It is those little activities and habits that Success is created.

      Printing a blog post is a simple thing to do but… I guarantee most never do it.

      Keeping the post next to your computer to remind you to review this info weekly will enhance your knowledge but… most won’t be consistent with that activity.

      Focus is one powerful step toward success. You must take action if you expect to succeed in anything.

      Thanks for your leadership and professional example Mark.

      Best of Success!

    Aloha Terry,

    Just came to your site thought Joanathan Budd.

    Saw all the wonderfull information sites,you have done your homework. Feel bless that your site came to me today. I am feeling a little over whelmed since I am not a computer person “yet” even writing this e-mail is a BIG setp for me and I sure hope it goes though since some time it dose not. So you can see I am vary green at all this web stuff and lets say feeling like a fish out of water. So my question to you is for a rookie where would be a good place to start. Remember I know ZERO about the web.
    LOve any positive step to more forward and learn something NEW!!!
    P.S. Love your web site and hope to learn how to create one soon.
    Maholo for your time!

    Autumn
