“I switched my advertising to Inspiration and was surprised by the number of calls I started to receive as soon as the magazine came out. After advertising for two years in another periodical offering Kaua’i alternative health options, I was not used to getting so many calls and so rapidly.” Virgina Beck, NP, CPT, Kalaheo, Kaua’i

“Inspiration turned out to be much more that I expected. I’ve been asked to advertise in many publications, but few have netted any results. Inspiration has been the exception. It is an excellent magazine to read and a great one to connect with new clients.” Cindie K. Jones, CFP, Waddell and Reed, Muskegon, MI
