“CJ, I wanted to let you know that after my kidney transplant last November, I used Metal Motivation to get past a few recovery rough spots.

“CJ, your work just reaches me on such a deep level. Genuinely inspires me to work harder, enjoy life more, and rock harder than ever before. I’m nearly blind in both eyes, and it would be easy for that to get me down, to keep me down and away from my potential. But for my perceived limitations, I have only derisive laughter as metal motivates me to greater heights. To that end, Metal Motivation is really helpful, as it puts into words that which I feel and know to be true and tells me I’m not limited by what others may think I can and can’t do. (Ever seen a blind man rise through the ranks of a Marine Corps JROTC course, out-shooting all but one cadet? Neither have I. I’ve been that blind guy.) Rock on!” ~ Michael Dead-Eye Espinoza
