Dear Dr. Dani, I hope that you are doing well today both personally and professionally. I wanted to write you a personal letter thanking you again for everything that you have done for me. You have acted as my Sherpa Guide through the treacherous and rugged mountain passes, but now descending the mountain I can see the beautiful lands that wait for me. You have been very gracious with your time and your expertise and it is not possible for me to put into words what a huge difference you have made in my life professionally and personally. Whenever I see you on TV or watch the links you post on Facebook, you are very happy, cheery, bubbly and positive. Your positive charisma is contagious and has encouraged me to pursue what I really want to do in life; you have validated what I know to be true. How is it possible that you are positive all of the time? What is your secret? I mentioned in a previous email that I considered you a personal hero and inspiration and you asked me if I was serious. My answer now is the same as my answer then: YES! I have your autographed picture hanging on my wall over my desk next to the autographed pictures of: Michelle Bachman, Congresswoman, MN 6th District Bernard Kerik, former NYPD Commissioner Steven Pressfield, Author Terry Brooks, Author Joan Wolf, Author Dr. Joe Dobson, Professor of Management at Western Illinois University You are in the company of some very impressive people that are important to me and have inspired my life. I have enclosed a quote from Steven Pressfield that is by far my favorite quote from The Gates of Fire. It is perhaps the most perfect quote regarding leadership and the nature of great leadership. I have also enclosed some other information that I have previously discussed with you via email. I hope you have a great day and I hope to hear from you soon. Your friend,

Kevin Zook
