Thank you Warren, I now have good karma and people find it easier to relate to me far better than before because of a genuine smile and greeting. Thank you for the workshop you facilitated in Cradock three years ago, it helped me get out of my cocoon. I now run a small business and employ in excess of 20 people. Thank you Warren and My Arms Wide Open.
