“I met Team LUCID shortly after publishing my first book The 15 Minute Heart Cure. I was impressed by their creativity and the caliber of media placements they were able to secure locally and nationally. The work I did with them still benefits me nearly 2 years later. The talented LUCID team is extraordinarily professional, current, creative and innovative, which are all essential for modern day messaging.”
