What Other Students Say...


Colin Kirts

"I think this is great! Most importantly, people need this. People need REAL tools for resilience. People need REAL and you are real, and that is GREAT!"

Idea Champions

Mitch Ditkoff -- Author of Storytelling for the Revolution and Storytelling at Work

"Hats off to Joel Metzger for creating Piece We Need – about one of the most important topics: how we can tap the inner strength we have, but all-too-rarely access. Piece We Need is a living, breathing example of the power and resilience of the human spirit and a great reminder about our extraordinary potential."

The Marriage Mediator

Max Rivers -- Author of Loving Conflict

“We all know we should make lemonade out of lemons. In this book by Joel Metzger [Piece We Need], we learn what to do when the whole damn lemon tree falls on us and we end up in a coma. The result is a delicious brew of wisdom, practical advice, and lighthearted fun.”

Fighting my challenges!

Eleanor Sopia

"When I face a lot of problems over and over again, I know that I need to build inner strength. Piece We Need helps me to fight my challenges. Now I know how to face up to challenges that come my way. When I use these tools, I'm a happy lady."

Talking Stories!

Louis Angles

"Talking Stories is a series of videos by Piece We Need. Each has a unique perspective and is filled with inspiration. These videos range from specific topics to random thoughts by Joel Metzger, and they are all really interesting."
