While it may be my name on the cover, this book was a collaborative effort. The entire Ovation Communication team support was palpable during the process, and I will be forever grateful. This would not have been possible without the time, talent, humor, and energy of Richard Arseneault, Nick Verina, Tom Frey, and especially Bridget Beirne. Thank you to John Woods of CWL Publishing for trusting me with this project. It has been a joy and a fantastic learning experience. Many thanks to the calming influence of Eric Bergeron, whose belief in me and Ovation Communication has never faltered. Dedicated to Sydney Faye—look, Mama wrote a book!
