“Words can't express the hidden hurt, pain, and heartache which enveloped my life for nearly 20 years until a divine connection was made with Jo Lena Johnson. I had been living a stoic life, bottling up my feelings. She sat with me, got deep in thought and listened to my stories; I remember her saying, ‘Anyone can write. I need to know what’s inside of you and why you feel the need to write it.’ Well, she got the story out of me and that day my healing began. Now I can feel and cry when I need to. Jo Lena provided impeccable services and guidance with writing my book!” - Beverly Dotson, MSW

“Jo Lena Johnson went out of her way to help me publish “My Life’s Lemonade, The Bitter and The Sweet.” She traveled to my home in Illinois from Missouri sometimes 3 times a week to ensure I met the deadline I had set. She provided much feedback to pages I wrote in between her visits. She never complained if I had not written very much since her last visit. I had just had 3 major surgeries and was going through cancer treatment. She understood my deadline and opened her heart to understand my struggle. She walked me through what it takes to write a book knowing I had never done that before. She not only taught me about writing a book and what it takes to publish the book she encouraged me every day that I would beat my beast. I finished my book by the deadline I set and it sold over 1,000 copies. As for my deadline --- well I am 5 years cancer free. I made so many friends that continued encouraging me because of the time my publisher was willing to spend with me. I am writing another book now with no deadlines to think about.” - JoAnn S. Martin, Author

"Becoming a published author helped increase respect from fellow aspiring authors and fellow entrepreneurs. By showing that I could produce and publicly present a finished product, whether that product was good or bad, it inclined others to perceive me in a different light. Sometimes that perception was favorable and sometimes it revealed jealousy which benefited me in learning who and who not to collaborate with on future business endeavors. It also increased my confidence in and favorable perception of myself and my abilities, which greatly affects my interactions with others and my actions in my writing career and within other business ventures.
Jo Lena helped me by providing an unbiased sounding/reflective board from which I was able to see myself and my direction from multiple views. This enabled me to correct errors, learn from them, increase my understanding of my course, and get closer to perfecting my path to reaching my goals. The overall experience of working with Jo Lena was extremely informative and essential to me becoming a world-renowned published author." - Steven Combs
