OTHER TESTIMONIALS

LeeAnne  also receives accolades for her online course, public speaking, and books: 


"At our 4 book signings at Barnes & Noble, I used many suggestions from Book Signings. Each manager said ours was one of the best signings they ever had and welcomed us to come back at the release of our next book."


"This is my second time taking your online course. After the first time, I had 22 articles, short stories and essays published."


"LeeAnne Krusemark was excellent. I enjoyed her personality and her ability to convey the material in an easy-going manner. I attended similar talks where the egos of the presenters overshadowed their message. LeeAnne was delightful."
