“For over 40 years, I have lectured in corporate offices and college classrooms, keynoted for audiences of 15,000 and facilitated teams of 30. But when I found myself saying “excuse me?” and “please repeat”, something was indeed going on. I had been to two different hearing offices but it was only when I found Ann and Amazing Hearing that my auditory ability improved. What I so value is her patience with me. I might have written eight books but when it comes to understanding technology and phone apps for my hearing aids, I am a simpleton. She fixes that— patiently. Bottom line: Helen Keller was right. “Blindness cuts us off from things. Deafness cuts us off from people.”
