Testimonial for Social Butterfly Club:
"Hi Alice! Love the new email!"
"Dear Alice: Thank you for your newsletter. I admire the way you write."
~Brad Kasselman, Coast Mountain Photography / Texas Creek Ranch
"Your opening regarding Dr. Sun Yat Sen reminded me that in another life I was able to spend time at his birth place visiting their local Jr. High school. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Build a fine weekend."
~Bill Murphy, UPS
"Many thanks for the wonderful Christmas greeting/surprise, Alice!
Happy Holiday season to you, Dear!
I'm intrigued that you've been "cocooning" and look forward to your metamorphosis.
Thank you for the gingerbread men! I certainly appreciate your brand of humor! I chuckled aloud when I saw that! Then I studied them!
That's a great message about being generous with love. I am trying. This year has been quite challenging for me in that department and I just trying to hang on to a bit of sanity."
"Wow! The Stanley Jone story is powerful, awesome and sounds amazingly like mine. I experienced growing up Black in America and it has forever coloured my world. The great news is I survived and the bad news is so many other did not and are now either victims of self-loathing or dead. Thank you for passing this story to me and making my day."
"Thank you for keeping me in the loop"
"Thanks for the newsletters every month, I do enjoy them."
"Thank you sweet Alice, for your generous mention of my upcoming event!
You are wonder-full :-))"

“Back in 2006, I had just graduated from University and landed a job in the recycling industry as a business development manager. My CEO asked me to join certain networking groups and attend events where I could promote our business. One of the groups I found online was the Social Butterfly Club. I joined the mailing list and started to receive the newsletter. I soon realized that this job wasn’t for me but I really didn’t know what I wanted to do. In a leap of faith, I contacted Alice and reached out to her for help. At that time there were approximately 2500 people in her distribution list and I asked if she knew anyone looking for someone. Out of her good will, she responded and put me in touch with a business contact that was looking for someone to help them in their online marketing business. I started working with an online lead generation company and gained experience in a field I rather enjoyed. That experience landed me a job as a Project Manager in a leading Digital marketing company here in the lower mainland and I finally found a career that I enjoy. I am extremely grateful that she took the time to put me in touch with such great people that help launch my career. Thank you Alice!”
“your emails are very entertaining. The way you write and what you reveal about yourself is almost like getting an email from a friend--very different from other industry letters!”

"Hi Alice, Your latest memberspotlight issue was a blast, and you did a brilliant job interviewing Michael O'Shea."
"Dear Alice! We've only met briefly, once or twice, but I do enjoy your letters and the energy that flows from them. But this April's monthly newsletter is the best yet: a WONDERFUL, thoughtful, honest, introspective essay. Much beyond just a newsletter. You have a real talent for writing and for ideas, not just for hard work. My prescription: work hard , but work smart.
Best wishes, Alice, for love and life"

"Alice, It was a great event, at a very cool venue.
I ought to hang out in Gastown more often.
The bar, the pianists, the artwork, the people: well done."
It was a pleasure to meet you again at the David Suzuki Foundation event this morning. We last met two or three years ago at a networking event, and surprise, surprise, you put me on your mailing list (barry@ barrysharp.com).
Your Social Butterfly newsletter is the only one I actually read all the way through. I'm a generation or two removed from you, however I really enjoy…and appreciate…your take on life. My business helps companies succeed and I wish I could take one tiny piece of credit for your success, however it's your attitude that determines your altitude, and you've got it spades. Go, girl."
