Acknowledgments
Diandra Macias

You’ve walked with me for
15 years and helped fashion
Duarte into what it is today.
Your friendship moves me
deeply and your commitment
to design excellence takes
my breath away.
Michaela Kastlova

You are my sweet angel sent
from Prague to make this book
a reality. Your design skills and
tenacity are just what I needed,
and I have loved every minute
working with you.

You talked me into writing this
and said people would buy it.
I hope you are right. Thanks for
helping with structure, content,
and word variety. It’s a way
better book.
Dan Post
VP of Account Services
You shouldered the business
so I could write. I sleep like a
baby knowing you’re at the
helm leading with wisdom
and insight. I never dreamed
I’d find someone like you.
Contributed significantly to book.
Paula Tesch
Marketing Assistant
What would we have done
without your humor, snacks,
photography, and bow
hunting skills?
