Comments From Readers:
I would like to say that I recently purchased your "Economy
Proofing Rural Business" book and have found it to be very, very
helpful. I wish I had this book many years ago!!"
"I just wanted to let you know that
hardly a day has passed during this past year that we have not
read from one of these books. Your writing is easy to understand
and your suggestions (*advice) is awesome. I'm not just being nice
Ellie.. Your books are very informative and have helped these two
ol' gals more than we can say. Thank
you so much for making our life better via your knowledge and
writings. We appreciate all of your efforts to help us raise our
Kiko Goats to the best of our ability."
"Thank you, Ellie for trying to help people who are shooting
themselves in the foot."
"I'm a book owner, newsletter reader, and big fan of your
marketing advice. I'm already seeing results."
"You have no idea how good you are! As an educator I stayed
in class and earned a B.S., M.A. a fist full of professional
designations and all of the PhD except the final dissertation -
but I can’t write anywhere nearly as well as you do! ! YOU ARE
TERRIFIC! Those of us who love country living (and use a few
acres profitably) read BeyondTheSidewalk.com to help keep up
with profit making ideas. Beyond that, it’s fun! Please excuse
me now while I head to town and the bank. We sold more animals
this week and I’ve got to make a deposit!"
"The first thing I noticed is that you KNOW HOW TO WRITE and you
do it well....which spoke volumes to me about your
professionalism. Crisp, clear information that doesn't veer from
your purpose--selling your products and services."
"I'm really impressed with how she tailors universal marketing
skills to work specifically for small farmers and their farm
products. If you are interested in picking up some good tips on
how to market your sheep and sheep products, I can recommend her."
"Besides having great marketing advice, you have a wonderful
gift with language : you state things clearly, and are gently
inspiring with everything you write."
"I think following this material has been a gentle way to
re-motivate for the more active selling season. I have already
gotten two of the books, but this always hits home and really has
an impact. I think the work you are doing goes way beyond teaching
folks how to market, you are teaching them (or reminding the them)
how to live happy effective lives."
