  1. Jenni,

    thanks for following here and on twitter. I am looking for a good Pumpkin Pie recipe.

    I do have you on my radar since I know a Jen Fields in Cincinnati area.

    Your name always stands out on Twitter for that reason.

    I will spend some more time on your site and hope to test some of the recipes out over the holidays.

    Hi. I follow you on Twitter (I’m, and I’ve read a couple of your posts. Best to you with this site–it is very well put together–and with the new baby. I will be coming back frequently for a shot of motivation. I know what you mean about the “brick wall!” Stick with it; that’s what I keep telling myself:)

    Hi Brian,

    Count me in as a regular! I come and go depending on my schedule, but every time I read your blog, I’m reminded why I keep coming back. :)

    Congratulations to the proud papa!!


  4. WhenIGroUpCoach,

    I spent some time on your site as well but will need to check back with your site again. I had a baby girl this week and life has been hectic. Blogging has taken a back seat to twitter follows and such.

    I offered the shameless plug and I am glad you accepted. I look forward to keeping in touch once the dust settles here (if it ever does.)

    Thanks for the read and comment.


  5. Hey there,

    I’m a new reader (I think we’re twiends) & while I’ve only read a post or two, I’ve bookmarked to read more. So keep at it!

    And because you encouraged shameless self-promotion, here’s my share:

  6. Brian,

    You are truly inspiring and I love how we can talk about anything and you love me no matter what.

    You deserve, to have all your dreams come true and I will support you and love you through the ups and downs of pursuing your dreams.

    You’ve given me so much motivation over the past couple of months as I’ve tried to switch over from life at the “day-job” to running my own show! I keep coming back to your blog because your writing is really good and you have a lot of great information from your days as a personal coach that I rely on to keep me going. Glad to be one of your loyal fans! Keep up the good work!
