“Albert, Thank you for such a great introduction to some basics around Facebook and Fan Pages! Sometimes we just need to get our feet a little wet in order to dig in and create something AMAZING!  I have wanted to create a Fan page since they came about and would just get confused and never begin. I know several of us felt more Empowered when we finished the class.  So THANKS for giving me some simple tools to take those first tiny steps and perhaps we can have another class once I get the basics going well!!”

“I love how enthusiastic Albert is, and how he endlessly works to bring others into the causes he is passionate about. I love his innovative mind. I love how he values community, and frequently brings large groups together to share food, music, and each others’ company. I appreciate his guitar and singing abilities, and again, how he shares them with us all. I appreciate the complexity and depth of both his mind and his heart, and how he chooses his actions based on the truths he finds in both.” March 11, 2010

One response to “Recommendations

  1. I have known Albert from the sidelines for many years. I live over an hour from Portland, so I don’t have the opportunity of participating in many of his events, honoring the planet by not doing a lot of driving and coming to town only one day a week if possible. (I began giving up toxic chemicals in my food, in cleaning, my yard, on my body and animals, over 30 years ago. I still have to recycle everything myself with my car, since there is no recycling yet where I live! So I contribute in my own way.) Yet I have watched Albert be inspired again and again and actually GET THINGS DONE!! He helps create MIRACLES!! He is one of the few people I know, who does not just “talk about ideas”! He makes things happen!! He is a real role model and inspiration in my life that I can really make my weird dreams come true!! I know he inspires countless people. Just look at all the countless projects where he has inspired even hundreds of thousands of people to change their lives!! He is amazing!!

    I want to be honest here and say I do not always totally agree with him on everything. I believe I create my own reality and certain things do not always jive with my view on life. However, I have always remained impressed by Albert’s ability to put his visions into action, while mine often sit on the sideline …smile. I need his inspiring belief in himself and his tenacity!! I feel perhaps then I could go anywhere!! And I Celebrate Diversity!! I celebrate our many differing points of view!! That is why we were each created to be Unique and a one-of-a-kind Original!!

    I get way too many newsletters in my Inbox and have unsubscribed to most of them. Albert’s is one I continue to receive, because ….there is ALWAYS something of value in it for me. Something to inspire me, awaken me, guide me, remind me, and get me going again!! Our world would be so different without YOU in it!! Albert I LOVE having you as a friend in my life!! As they used to say in Star Trek I believe? May you live long and prosper!!!!!!

    Endless Love & Magic & Appreciation, Morgine
