I am writing on behalf of Doug Herald in regards to possibly guest Speaking. Doug is one of those people that you walk away from feeling motivated, encouraged, and inspired every time you meet. He talks weekly on WOBO FM out of Ohio and is currently in the process of releasing his first book entitled, "In Hope for Time and Eternity." He has started Time & Eternity, which is a personal, professional, and organizational development company that desires to help people live a continuously improving life full of purpose and contentment. I fully believe Doug would be a great guest to have on your station. A man of integrity who has lived success and dealt with life struggle along the way. He works as the Vice President of Manufacturing at Wornick Foods and has had a very successful career. Thanks and I hope you have a wonderful day
