Personal/Business Reference 1

To Whom It May Concern,
I am writing regarding Mr. Jerome (Jay) L. Danzie whom I have known as a co-worker and personal friend for twenty-seven years. In that time Jay has shown himself to be a standout. He is a loyal, honest, considerate, and a supportive individual who has the ability to see and understand things from another person’s perspective. He is a great direct communicator and knows how to raise and discuss common day to day issues in a non-threatening manner. He is hyper-sensitive and is always tuned into how another person might “feel” in a given situation.
I first met Jay, when we were both starting our work careers. We were just high school students and I knew then that there was something extraordinary about him. He came to work when scheduled and always played his part on the team. He is the type of person that will help anybody. He likes to have loads of fun too and boy can he dance. A thought provoking conversationalist along with being a motivator. I am so glad I have had the pleasure of knowing this great guy all these years. If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact me.
Best Regards,

How to Travel the World on a Shoestring was an awesome, resourceful and informative book. This book has shown to have value in my life. I recently had car trouble where I needed to rent a vehicle. After reading How to Travel the World on a Shoestring I realized I could get crazy discounts by going to and or The book had stated that enterprise weekend specials starts from Wednesday-Monday and with you can (bid)quote your own price on rental cars. 
Knowing this one piece of information from "How to Travel the World on a Shoestring" has saved me hundreds of dollars. There are many other tips & resources listed as well that I'm eager to implement.

Mr. Danzie is a unique individual that thinks outside the box.  He has superb communication skills and is confident in his professionalism. During his Marketing tenure at Achievable Visions I found him to be intelligent with decision making on projects he implemented.  Jay was consistently pleasant even under pressure.  He illustrated dedication in handling all his responsibilities.  He was always gratifying to work with because he always smiled no matter what.  His persistence and leadership role has always been inspiring and motivating to others. He is and would make a great attribute to any organization that he manages.

"I am Robert E. Harris, Jr., attorney at law and author. To date, with 20+ years of experience, I have had no convictions where any of my Federal criminal clients were sentenced to more than 1 day of jail time. Jay was a volunteer in my campaign for Circuit Court Judge and as a result, he became my personal friend. 
I recommend Jay Danzie as a high caliber networker, classy dressing, innovative thinker, with great resources and salesmanship. In addition, he is a real go-getter, personable, talented, and a motivational speaker."

Character/ professional reference

To Whom It May Concern:
It is my great pleasure to know Jay Danzie and I wholeheartedly vouch for his character and commitment.
It is said that character is what one is and reputation is what one is thought to be by others.  Jay’s responsible and amiable character is synonymous with his reputation.  I have served on a non-profit board and as proofreader of one of his books for more than 6 years.  Over that period I have come to know and anticipate the valuable qualities that Jay brings to projects.  
His creative thought process, follow through, and discipline add value to the planning, administration and execution of many projects that go on to become successful business ventures.  He has actively worked over the years to serve his community by eliminating blight, mentoring youth and supporting the political process, just to name a few.  In every activity, Jay can be counted on to be timely, responsive and effective.  In addition to his dedication to achieving results, Jay is very constructive in the planning process.  He is able to bring calm and reason to debates, ensuring that a team’s goals are ultimately met.  
Jay is intelligent, professional and a joy with which to work.  I highly recommend him as an asset to future projects, and I am happy to furnish more details, if requested.
