Kind words...testimonials

"I was privileged to be one of the authors on Lisa’s Knocked Up Abroad Again and was completely blown away with her professionalism from start to finish.  She worked tirelessly on the Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, getting in front of as many people as possible, reaching out personally pulling favors, emailing, posting in online communities, constantly updating so that investors were always aware of how the campaign was doing and how much their efforts were appreciated."
 
~Rosemary Gillan, contributor to Knocked Up Abroad Again and Once Upon an Expat
 
"I was incredibly impressed with Lisa's organizational and managerial skills when she sought to fund the second volume of the Knocked Up Abroad book series.
 
Through her leadership, flexibility, and innovation, she was able to quickly change plans to go with what works for raising money.
 
~Vanessa Jencks, rue Run Media (theBeijinger | beijingkids | JingKids)
 
 
"It was an absolute pleasure working with Lisa on the Knocked Up Abroad Series and Kickstarter campaign. As contributors, Lisa kept us fully informed and engaged throughout the whole process, which I really appreciated.
 
Her commitment to getting this project more than fully funded was unswerving, and her passion nothing less than inspiring."
