“My experience with Joanne Shwed has been delightful on all levels. I appreciate her eye for details along with her creative influence. As an author many times, the information will be downloaded through me so quickly I do not focus on details. Joanne has a remarkable ability to recognize order and flow, making the reading experience enjoyable and inspirational. She is quick and precise. I was very impressed at the speed at which she responded and worked side by side with me on my fourth book. I am grateful for her presence and gift in this world.”—Lauren E. Miller, Author of 5 Minutes to Stress Relief

She is a resource that I will continuously use.”—Kenetia Lee
