"I LOVE this book Never Quit on a Bad Day. It inspires and reminds me of my favourite quote by Vivian Green, "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain." Each story shows no matter how tough things got they never quit, just kept moving forward. This book is great reminder of what has happened to me when I have struck tough times, I'm just about to give up, but then I remember how far I have come and to keep moving forward. We all have an inner strength that gets stronger with each challenge we face. Dig deep and take that next step, then the next on. Keep moving forward."

This book will undoubtedly have a positive impact on your life and those around you."

"Phebe!! Just finished your book in my after workout daily morning sauna time. (Sorry it took me this long, I had 3 books in the queue) I loved your book and all the personal stories! I wrote down different quotes as I read and have already used a couple on my son DJ. I read 100% true stories about people/athletes/history and I always love a book that makes me stop reading to think about the message and really understand it. And then sometimes reread it for memory. Yours did that! Great job my friend! Keep grinding!! "

"When we are feeling particularly low and without steam in our boats of life, it can be quite enlightening to hear from others' experiences.

This book does that and it does that in spades. There were several deep moments in the book where I just knew that this book was speaking to me. The challenges in the chapters also serve to bring the message of this book more to home for the reader.

This book hit home for me. There are times where we feel stuck on 1st, 2nd, or 3rd and don't know when to run home or if we still can. This book reminded me I still have so much to run for. Thanks so much for putting this together and sharing your dynamite thoughts, Phebe! This book is a gleaming treasure.
