||Moving right along now...!
A young woman who has interviewed some of the greatest achievers of our time for her new book, has just highlighted Martin and his book on her blog, "Real People. Really Remarkable Lives".
I thought you would enjoy seeing this...
I love her first sentence:
"Have you ever read a book that makes you think bigger?"
Here are excerpts from a letter she sent to Martin and which she will soon post on Amazon.com as a testimonial:
Thank you so much for gifting me with your wonderful book "Slice of Heaven"...I had no idea what a treasure this book would be to me or my husband...
My life has been moving so fast since the book conference that it wasn’t until last weekend when my husband and I were returning from Los Cabos, Mexico celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary that I finally got a chance to crack open the book. My husband and I decided to read your book out loud to one another as we flew home to Santa Barbara.
The result of reading your book has been a total inspiration to us both. Not only was reading it an enjoyable experience but it was more than that...it captured our hearts. Few things in life reach out and grab you in your heart but this book certainly did it for us. It exposed us to a whole new way of thinking about family, travel and freedom (three areas that are very important to us).
I never heard of another family that was so free despite the fact that you had 5 children. The way you enjoyed your children helped me realize that family life can really be what you make it.
I must admit that though my husband and I are living a dream life (I am interviewing the world’s greatest achievers and my husband purchasing commercial investment properties through his company...both of us only 26 years old and living in an ocean-view Santa Barbara home)...the idea of fleeing to an exotic country, working hand & hand with one another and raising a family filled us with wonder and amazement.
The way you seemingly live your life with such trust and lack of anxiety is also stimulating.
We finished your book in one day and one evening. We couldn’t put it down and we were sad when it was over. I have already recommended your book to several family and friends and certainly want to help you spread your story. In fact, I plan on purchasing your book as a Christmas present for some of my loved ones.
I am about to leave to NY in a matter of weeks to pitch my book to major publishers and to William Morris and so I know for certain that this is not the right time for us to "pack up and go" but I do believe that in the next 7 years we will follow in the Thomas family footsteps and purchase an exotic property abroad with our own to-be future family.
The book gave us insight and wonder for a whole new adventure but it also gave us a million more questions and left us longing for more...
I am delighted to have you listed you on my blog...
Please also know if there is any way I can help you. We would be would be very open to supporting you in any way we could. If you develop a website for your book, I would be happy to provide that as a link on my blog.
If there are any books or other information resources that may help my husband and I create something like this for our family or better understand how you did it, we would be very appreciate in learning more. We are open to any advice or guidance you might be able to lend us.
Thank you again to you Martin, Jennifer, Lily, Maximilian, Indiarose, Casper and Michelangelo for living your life in such a way that it inspires others.
For the benefit of the world, keep following your dreams and authentically living the life you desire.
Keep in touch and thank you again,
P.S. Where is the Thomas family living now? We live in Santa Barbara and it would be a pleasure to connect with you if you ever came this way.
