E-mail a Friend

So-so or Great? Communicate!

What did you think about the selections in Doers and Dreamers? What did they teach you about making dreams come true? Did your reading help inspire you to follow your own dreams? Use your e-mail program to send an e-mail to a friend, describing what you learned in this theme. Share one of your dreams or goals with your friend, and then ask him or her to share one in return! Remember to use the e-mail tips on this page when you write your message.


  1. Type a title in the subject line.
  2. Keep your paragraphs short so they're easy to read. Skip a line between them.
  3. Don't use all capital letters. In e-mail, this is like shouting at someone!
  4. Follow the rules of good writing.
  5. Proofread your e-mail before sending it.
