"I'm one of your email newsletter recipients & have been for some time now - around 18 months (I think).
I just wanted to send a quick note of thanks, I always enjoy the common sense advice immensely and am left with plenty to think about once I've read each issue.
Thank you so much! and keep them coming!"
"After reading your article in your Sept newsletter "Is there a perfect job?", this assisted me in determining what role I wanted to attract based on my values that were very important to me.
I have done quite a bit of values work around different aspects of my life and career and your article really helped me determine more specifically how to attract the role that was important to me.
So thank you, thank you for your informative, realistic and easy to put in practice articles that you offer in your newsletters."
"When Ingrid’s newsletter pops up in my emails I always make the time to read it. She fills the newsletter with wonderful, interesting, thought provoking and often very topical information.
I often go and check out the business she mentions, such as the Cardboard Box Company in today’s newsletter. I have added the business to my favourites list as I will have a job that will need their expertise soon.
Recently I did a cleanout and unsubscribed to at least five other newsletters because they were just trying to sell something and often did not have any other information that was useful. Ingrid’s newsletter always has some useful anecdote, story or report and it’s a pleasure to read.
I always learn something new when I read it.
Thanks Ingrid for a terrific newsletter."
