  1. Cole,

    Wish I could be there to hear you. You should have someone video your presentation so you can share it on your blog… Look forward to talking with you soon friend….

  2. Cole,

    I look forward to seeing you again and hearing your presentation! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to be of assistance to you.


  3. Hi Cole, are you ever coming to Australia, the land of crocodiles, kangaroos, koalas and really nice people.

  4. Hi Cole

    I’m seriously thinking about driving out from Georgia (USA). It would be a ten day road trip to see the West again (it’s been 45 years since I lived out that way), taking in some of the National Parks, etc. Hearing your talk would make for a great “purpose”!


  5. These are question which I constantly ask my self and try working on many other points
    Thanks for you input.

    Always Stop!
