Click here for Jane’s 2 minute video.“As l listened to you speak I welled up thinking that over the last ten years I have allowed my life to be influenced by to many negative (tomato throwing) people. It was not until I received your message of “never give up” and “everything is possible” that I realized that playing it safe with a less than satisfying job was exactly what I had done. At 51 I will start making “Ketchup and Salsa” out of tomatoes as soon as I get to work tomorrow.” Wesley H.For more information visit her web site: www.janeherlong.com and check out Jane’s funny YouTube Channel! http://www.youtube.com/user/janeherl
