Praise for The One Philosophy

4.5 out of 5 stars

Cyrus Webb, Top 100 Amazon Reviewer

"The One Philosophy reminds us that everyone has the chance to be "The One" through what they do for themselves and others."

Sharon Lechter, Author & Businesswoman

"This little book surely does hold a big message...the secret to a fulfilled and purposeful life is to focus on serving others first."

Vicki Ibaugh, Cerfified Kolbe Consultant

"The One Philosophy has inspired me to expand how I show up for others - to be of service with no expectation of anything in return. And yet, the more I am of service to others, the more goodness I receive in my own life."

Don Green, The Napoleon Hill Foundation

"Conventional wisdom tells us not to judge a book by its cover. By reading this book you will realize how so much wisdom can be imparted in a small book."

Mikal Haney, Coach & Minister

"Before you reach the end of this book, you begin to realize your inner power and spirit to truly be "The One" for others and that by doing simple things for someone else, you open the vision for your life."

Jana Danielson, MBA, entreprenuer

"After reading this book and applying the principles, my team is flourishing. It is resonating through them to our clients and patients and I love it!"
