  1. Good advice, Bett! Should I think we met for a chat once because I was in No. 2?

    On No. 3 when you say "Read five books on the subject" it is not clear on what subject.

    I've read only "The 4-hour.." book. I'm checking out now the other four on Amazon.

  2. Thanks for the concise advice. This is a lot to digest. I appreciate you sharing your wisdom so freely and simply.
