Barry Edwards has been a friend of mine for nearly 30 years. He has also been the graphic designer and marketing resource for JP HORIZONS, helping with our first logo and updates through the years. He has created websites, branding for many of our our events and programs, and he has been involved with the creation of all of our book covers starting with the original FIVE IMPORTANT THINGS cover in 1996. Through those years, there have been periods where we talked every day, laughed, fought, not talked for a year or two, and then connected again and started off on another project. His cover design for THE DEPRESSED MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER was insightful and valued, yet what was most helpful was his belief and understanding of what we set out to accomplish with the book. This was obvious to me when I sat down with him as a guest on his podcast OVER FIFTY STARTING OVER, and the conversation took us to topics we had not touched on in the prior 30 years.
When the podcast finished, we both realized that THE DEPRESSED MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER had done what I intended it to do and what Barry knew it had the potential to do: help people have an honest and open conversation on the topic of depression.
