Sean’s Birthday Surprise

Sean D\'Souza Baby Picture

Hi, this is Renuka. And if you’re reading this post you’re more than likely to have received an email from me. (I’ve posted the email below, if you haven’t already read it).

But if you have, then here’s what I’d like you to do:

1) Wish Sean for his upcoming 40th birthday by posting a comment.
2) Let him know how he’s helped you/inspired you (or anything else you wish to say).
3) Remember to post your name, city and country as well as part of the comments.

Note: Your comment won’t be visible right away, and no, Sean won’t get to see the comments too, until his birthday. All comments will go directly to my email address. Sean already knows I’m doing this, and the ‘surprise’ is him getting to read your comments on Nov. 2.  So be sure to post right away :)

The original email was as follows:

Sean’s turning 40 on November 2. :)
And I’d like to surprise him–with your help, of course.

So here’s what I did. I set up a blog post at

And here’s what I’d like you to do:
1) If you’d like to write something to Sean and wish him, it would be great.
2) He particularly likes to know about things that have worked for you, so if
you have a great story as a result of reading an article, or using a product,
please post your story.

Now admittedly it’s impossible to keep the blog post a surprise from Sean,
because he’s always answering posts etc. But since it’s my idea, he’s promised
he won’t read any of the comments till his birthday on Nov 2.

I’ve even changed the comments approval password on the blog to my
email address, so that he can’t sneak in and check the comments.

So if you’d like to say something to Sean go to:

(And do remember to put in your name and your city/country on the post,
so Sean knows who’s posted when he does get down to reading the posts.
If you know Sean well, he’ll read every single post).

Thanks again.

    Hey le jeune! Bonne fête … 40 ans ça s’arrose alors vas pour un autre tour à l’eau ou … une autre margarita!

    Of everyone I’ve read of a bit or better, you’re the one I come back to with pleasure and serenity. Simplicity, clarity, deviousness (call it a ‘grin’), honesty, etc. you’ve played this with your cards on the table and with a total readiness to help.

    I’ve been reading, along with others, for ‘a while’ now (make that better than 5 years) and never get disappointed or pressured, no ‘last minute’, ‘server down’ (though it has happened to everyone’s chagrin) tactics and always with this smile at the end … including the bug crawling the bottom of the page.

    So have a really great day today/tomorrow (grrrr time zones), enjoy everything life (or Renuka) brings you and come back with your laugh ready and rested!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope you have the best day possible. And many more to follow.

    You’ve been a big help to me and I appreciate all your generosity. I’m very glad to have stumbled upon your work. And to have someone like you to guide me along.

    Thanks from all of us here in Brooklyn.

    Hi Sean,

    Happy B-Day!

    Welcome to the 5th Decade :-)

    Remember what Jack Benny said once…”Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”

    Given what a mind you have … I guess you shall be Okay ;-)

    Sean, I wish you joy and abundance.
    You are brilliant and talented.
    We are all meant to shine, as children do and you unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

    Happy Birthday!

    Hi Sean,

    Three years ago, I stumbled across your website at a time when I was almost completely bankrupt.

    Financially and emotionally. It’s not something I talk about.

    When I started to apply what I learned from The Brain Audit though, my business turned around. And that gave me the hope I needed to stay the course.

    I’m really not sure what would have happened had we not crossed paths.

    Thanks for all the hard work you put into making your information and insights available.

    Happy 40th Birthday Sean!

    All my best.

    Happy belated Birthday! You’re the best: not only do I look forward to reading your newsletter, but I deeply treasure every bit of correspondence and personal interaction I’ve had with you. What a treat to read how many people’s lives you have touched through your consulting and friendship. Thanks for including me in this group.
