Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

To My Friends, Colleagues, Teammates, etc…

I first wanted to say thank you in a very public way to my mom for her example and the inspiration she still gives me everyday, to my mentors who over the years have coached me even when I thought I knew better, to my professional colleagues and fellow entrepreneurs who inspire me every day to push through the tough times, to my clients and customers who believed in me – especially in the early years – to give me a chance and especially to my team at Pursuit of Excellence who really does all the work every day. I would not be who I am today or where I am without all of you!

With God’s grace and mercy on my life, I hope to give back with this book, my story and lessons learned the same way you all have given to me so selflessly. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I love all of you!

Marie

    Marie…

    Birthdays are always a time of reflection – on what the past has been and what we intend the future to be. Today is no different. As you celebrate another year of life, I know you live with a sense of urgency to complete everything you believe God wants you to do.

    You know that at the end of your life, it won’t matter how many years you lived. What will matter is how you lived your years. Congratulations as you near completion of your book – it will be a blessing to many for sure. Surprise and Happy Birthday as you see this complete site for the first time. May this be a reminder to you that you have blessed me and so many others beyond what you realize, beyond anything previously expressed and beyond what you imagine.

    So do not grow weary in doing good and keep doing good as if you knew you could not fail!

    Marie,
    Where to begin… 7 years ago I began a career at POE. You began mentoring me, showing me new possibilities, new opportunities and pushing me towards success. We have become good friends. Family. Thank you for that, I am a better me, a smarter business person and have a stronger faith for it.
    Truer words were never spoken, “Success doesn’t come to you, you go to it.”
    With Love,
    Myla

    This is so awesome. I absolutely love the title of your book “IF You Knew You Could Not Fail, What Would You Do?” I can’t stop thinking about all of the things I have done in my life. The things I did and I have failed and all the things I have succeeded. I will do all these things over again if I was certain I will not fail. I would have started to follow Jesus as a teen, I would have more children with my husband Alan, I would lead a major consumer product company successfully and I would run for President of Columbia Township, OH. I can’t wait to get a copy of the book.
