Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

Writing a book is a monumental task. Without the support and understanding of those close to me, my dreams for this book would have never come to fruition. Special thanks go to the following special people who helped to make this book possible:

Dan Balter (My Incredible Husband) for his ongoing support, love, encouragement, friendship, and for staying up many nights proofreading this book. Dan, words cannot adequately express the love and appreciation that I feel for all that you are and all that you do for me. Thank you for being the phenomenal person that you are. I enjoy sharing not only our career successes, but even more I enjoy sharing the life of our beautiful child, Alexis. There is no one I'd rather spend forever with than you.

Alexis Balter (My Precious Daughter) for giving life a special meaning. Alexis, you make all of my hard work worth it. No matter how bad my day, when I look at you, sunshine fills my life. You are the most special gift that anyone has ever given me.

Charlotte and Bob Roman (Mom & Dad) for believing in me and sharing in both the good times and the bad. Mom and Dad, without your special love and support, I never would have become who I am today. Without all of your help, I could never get everything done. Words can never express how much I appreciate all that you do!

Maureen and Herb Balter (Mom- & Dad-in-law) for their willingness to be the mother- and father-in-law that I missed for so long and, most of all, for accepting and appreciating me for who I am! Mom and Dad, your appreciation for my success and accomplishments makes them more meaningful to me. I am glad that I could help to give you a grandchild that you can love and cherish forever.

Roz, Ron, and Charlie Carriere for supporting my endeavors and for encouraging me to pursue my writing. It means a lot to know that you guys are proud of me for what I do.

Steven Chait for being a special brother. I want you to know how much you mean to me. When I was a little girl, I was told about your gift to write. You might not know this, but my desire to write was started as a little girl wanting to be like her big brother.

John Hawkins, Jeanne Banfield, Mike Groh, Geri Bahr, Dana Gardner, and all of the rest of Advisor Publications' wonderful staff for giving me a chance as an author. I enjoy both the professional and personal relationships that I have developed with all of you. Thanks for believing in me!

Greggory Peck, Clint Argle, and the Folks at Keystone Learning Systems for their contribution to my success in this industry. I believe that the opportunities you have given me have helped me reach a level in this industry that would have been much more difficult for me to reach on my own.

Paul Sheriff for inspiring and encouraging me to reach my potential as a trainer and developer. Paul, you are a special friend. I appreciate all that you have taught me as a friend rather than a competitor.

Grace Buechlein for doing her best to get through both the good times and the trying times. Grace, I know you always do your best to smooth the rough edges. You take your job as an acquisitions editor quite seriously and help to produce the best book possible.

Janet Reyes for being the person responsible for getting me started with computers. Janet, you were a tough boss, but now you are an incredible friend. I credit my beginnings as a computer nerd to you. Thanks for believing in me and pushing me to reach my potential.
