I'm not going to kid you, when I read the word "guru" in your post, I flinched at the idea of a guru of any type writing to a broad audience. However, after sampling And Then I Met Margaret, I feel as though I can relate to the "scrambling for money" aspect that you were raised to believe. I've been there.

I have always believed humility is the key to success. The minute someone starts thinking they know it all, its a downhill journey from there. I completely agree with you thoughts on unassuming gurus. Such a motivational letter.

Dear Mr. Rob White, your words are so deep, I am impressed. I would have to read the book. I like your journey too, from being a high school teacher to an author. Keep the good work and inspire us as an unassuming guru.
