Summary: Too many of us live with our inner voices reinforcing the feeling that we are "not good enough." Squelched is living testimony that we need not succumb to the negative messages life may serve up to thwart our aspirations and best efforts. We can be more than the expectations of others, with conviction, effort and hard work we can overcome and move towards personal strength and happiness.
Reviews for Squelched:
“Socrates taught us that the ‘unexamined life is not worth living.’ Terry Beard’s profoundly honest examination of his own life offers valuable lessons for all those seeking to find their personal voice.“ —Michael Miller, CEO of Goodwill Industries, Columbia - Willamette Chapter
“At some point in our lives we’ve all felt controlled and emotionally blackmailed by fear, intimidation, and guilt.

It is terrific!” —Carol Gardner, Creator of the brands Zelda Wisdom Inc. and MaxDaddy Inc. Author and entrepreneur.
“Terry tells not just a superficial story but a story that cuts right to the heart of his inner thoughts and how difficult life can be, yet how success can be achieved by overcoming those life’s obstacles. Rarely can you read an honest account like this, so don’t miss that chance!!!“ —Bill Stoller, CEO Express Personnel and Owner of Stoller Vineyards
“Squelched took me on a journey of reflection and self-discovery. Terry provided an emotional rollercoaster ride that kept me turning pages to the very end. Many times the words “me too” flitted through my mind, reminding me that “never being good enough” is a familiar societal demon. Words of wisdom and lessons learned were shared against a backdrop of personal struggle and success. For me, Squelched! was a love story - a journey of finding self-love and then sharing that love with the world. Well done!” —Phyllis Harmon, Creating Community Connections Past District Director Toastmasters International, Portland, OR, USA
