Hal, can’t WAIT to see that written up in the questionnaire! You have made my day! (Everyone else, see the response to yesterday’s blog entry.)
That’s the BEST kind of evangelizing there is, the EXAMPLE kind. Just do what you do, and people will ask–no lectures or persuasion needed. I was just writing in my book about how Victoria Boutenko used to run people down in the Safeway and tell them they needed to eat a raw-food diet. It’s a funny image. That is Never. Gonna. Work.
But there is no shortage of miserable, ill people, and they are looking for a prophet–anyone who knows more than they do, anyone experiencing good health, anyone willing to help. I know that a lot of you are helping others, many of you helping LOTS of others, and I want to hear about that in the questionnaire. Because my new book challenges readers to not stop at just changing their own health, but at influencing others you care about (who in turn influence more people, and more people, and it never ends–it becomes quantum). It’s RADICAL. Not like the teenagers use the word, but like the original definition.
I got a call this morning from a man who has lost 80 lbs. and bought a Total Blender on GreenSmoothieGirl.com, asking the usual questions about how much to feed the kids, how long it keeps in the fridge, etc. He said he got an email blast from his doctor, an M.D., saying,
“Here’s a link to something that will absolutely change your life, that has the power to help you lose 100 lbs. or more, with no other lifestyle change. DO IT.”
And what was that “something?” It was a link to my goofy little 3-min. home-video green smoothie demo on YouTube that has now had 50,000 hits. Green smoothies rock.
