“John’s book is written with insight from his personal experiences as a creative professional and business owner. The writing style is informal and direct. His success comes from listening, observing, interpreting and applying. An excellent blue-print for success for all business own ers in any category. This inspiring digest is useful for newcomers in the industry, as well as a refresher for all of us already well-established. It will be in my personal library as well as on my list of gifts of appreciation and inspiration when the occasion calls for it.”

“Most people have a dream and they either make it or they don’t. With the hit the economy took a few years ago I saw many companies say goodbye to their dreams. John Goolsby, however, chose to refocus his direction. With his new awareness John has completed the re-branding of his company and I cannot wait to read his book! I hope you will have the same eager anticipation.”

"As a veteran wedding planner it was almost impossible to narrow down who of the many vendors I had worked with over the years to use for my destination wedding in Mexico. When it came to the video, I did not have any issue. There was nobody else I could trust other than John Goolsby. John captured every moment and the video was almost better than the wedding. I could watch the video a million times. There is just no end to his talent and working with him is such a pleasure he feels like part of our family. Thanks John!"
