Who Are You? An In-depth Personal Transformation Journey

Are you ready to become something better? Something more than you are now?

What I’m talking about here is embarking on a journey of self-discovery and self-transformation that will leave you smarter, more confident, calmer, more capable and better able to conquer and succeed in every aspect of your life.  Am I making too many grand statements?  I don’t think so!  If you finish this course, earnestly striving to include in your life the principles taught you can achieve all that I presented and possibly more.

But we’re not going to take the path that most self-improvement guides take. I am not interested in ‘five easy hacks’ or anything remotely related to that way of thinking. Instead, we’re going to be diving into neuroscience, into philosophy and into ancient tradition in order to look at powerful and useful tools that can turn you into something more than you are now.

We will take a hard look at what motivates you, how to stop procrastinating once and for all.  Learning how to deal with your fears and giving yourself a confidence boost.  You will learn how to develop good, productive habits and how to get rid of those that are holding you back.

Setting and keeping goals is a simple thing to do when you follow my simple step by step guide.

Finally, we will take all this new found wisdom and knowledge and use it to create a meaningful life.

Then, as sort of the cherry on top of the sundae you will take a journey with me through mindfulness.

Jump on board!  It’s a great journey!

 

The Expert in You! You Are Much More Than You Think You Are

A solid foundation is built with solid understanding.

Do you ever sit back in surprise at the success of other people and wonder how you could become more successful? Well, simply put, there are no miracles when it comes to being successful – just a series of plans that, if put to use, will ensure you get ahead of the game. Many people believe that it is luck that determines whether a person becomes successful or not. However, it’s amazing how much luckier you get the more you work your plan so perhaps luck has a far smaller part to play in success than you might think.

This course is specifically designed to help you become better by gaining an understanding of how great you already are. I use simple, down to earth concepts to teach fundamental principles that all good leaders possess because, after all, aren’t we all leaders somewhere in our lives and generally when we do a good job leading others, at work, at home, or socially we feel better about ourselves

I provide a ton of downloads to assist you in learning the concepts I am teaching.  They will become a resource to you thoughout your life.

 

The Importance of Self-Esteem, One Sure Way To Improve Yours

One of the surest and best ways to improve your self-esteem is to set a goal and then accomplish it and one of the most prevalent goals today is the idea of running your own business from your home.

I have written this course to aid you in doing just that by understanding social media and the web and how you can use the technology available today to launch and grow a successful business either online or brick and mortar.

Anyone can pick a business name, assemble a simple website and declare themselves a business owner, but to be successful requires a few more steps and that is what you will gain from this course.

A lot has been and will continue to be written and discussed about social media and how best to utilize the features it offers to benefit your business.

In writing and producing this course I have endeavored to look at the whole process in a different way.  Let me explain:

In the first module you will learn the basics of social media, why it works and how and why it will work to grow your business.

You will learn in the module on social media platforms how best to use facebook, linkedin, twitter Instagram, pinterest, snapchat, google+ and youtube by customizing your message to fit each social groups interests.

As I laid this course out in a mindmap it became clear that to get the most out of these 8 platforms some other marketing elements come into play.

Blogging is an integral part of social media so I have included a module on blogging; how to set up a good blogging website, how to appeal to your targeted audience and I even teach you how to monetize your blog if that is going to be your intent, and I give you even more information on how to make money from blogging in my download material.

To write good content for your blog requires and understanding of content writing, I have included a module on that also.

In blogging and on most of the social media sites you will gain a more loyal following when you help them gain an understanding of your company and what it is all about rather than just pitching a product.  That is called branding and I have included a complete module on how to brand your company as well.

The greatest benefit that social media provides for the marketer is the ability to segment the market so your efforts and money won’t be spent talking to the wrong audience.

To  better understand who your target audience is  requires spending time developing an avatar or persona that best represents your ideal customer.   In the module on avatars you will learn through the videos and hands on download how to construct an avatar and how to communicate with him or her or both.

We are discovering that in the 21st century when it comes to marketing, content is king and the preferred method  for customers to learn about your company and your product, in other words your content, is through images and videos.

With this course you will find and enormous amount of downloads including an ebook to use as a ready reference for most of the modules.   Included in the downloads is a tool book.  I refer often to a list of links etc in each module.  I have compiled these various links and other references into a tool book for your ready reference.

When you have completed this course you will have a greater understanding of how social media works for business and how to use it to grow your business, plus the added bonus of understanding branding, content writing and blogging.  All areas you must be familiar with to thrive in the 21st century.

Want to Show Confidence? Then Learn to Speak With Confidence

What You Say and How You Say It Makes All The Difference Whether In the Way You Speak and Write, or Sit, Stand and Smile.  You can do it with much more confidence and poise when you are sure you are doing it right.

Communication is the process of exchanging information and ideas and there are many ways to communicate.  There are also many ways to miscommunicate. To be an effective and valuable leader it is important that you become skilled in all the different methods of communication that are appropriate. In this course, you will learn how to be a better communicator at work and in your private life. I will take you through the different types of communication, help you asses your communication skill level and teach you techniques to become a better communicator.

Think how often you communicate with people during your day. You can spend almost Your entire day communicating.  So, why is it very often you find others didn’t get the message, didn’t understand what you were trying to accomplish or misunderstood altogether what the plan was.

In this course, you will learn how to use the 7c’s in all your communication whether written, spoken or even body language.

You will learn good verbal communication skills and I teach you simple tricks to make it easier. Good verbal skills are more than just the words we use; you will learn about tone and intonation.  I even address the dreaded sentence upending that is plaguing the business world, why it doesn’t work for you and how to defeat the habit.  Believe me, if you are an upender you can’t imagine how you are being judged by your peers, your subordinates and your superiors and it ain’t good.  I can use the slang word ain’t here because it is being used to prove a point.

You will learn good written communication skills as well.  Skills such as how to write a professional looking and sounding business letter, the do’s and don’ts of writing business emails.  You will learn proper techniques for preparing a written business meeting agenda and how to produce an office memo correctly.  I provide downloadable material for you to use as a guide.

You will learn how to read body-language and more importantly how to interpret what you are seeing and you will learn how to improve your own body language so that the signals you send agree with the words you are using.

You will learn how to delegate properly so that results can be obtained when and how you want them.  I go over the good, the bad, and that not so pretty when it comes to delegation and help you understand how to differentiate between them.

If you are in the workplace you are now or will be responsible for conducting meetings.  Both team meetings and one-on-one meetings.  Most people dread attending meetings and if asked why, their responses will usually fall into one of two categories and often fall into both: the meeting always starts late and runs long, and the second reason, nothing ever gets accomplished.

I will teach you how to organize a meeting and then conduct it so those three elements, starts late, runs long, and nothing gets accomplished, will never come up when talking about the meetings you hold.

If you are not conducting then you need to know how to attend a meeting and I will teach you that, too.

Now, no self-respecting course on communication would be complete without a discussion on grammar.  This course just covers those areas that keep cropping up as I communicate with others.  The information is basic but the fact that I keep running into it suggests to me we need to talk about it.

Finally, now that we have covered the areas of communication I think are the most essential we move into the section I call “Beyond the Basics”.  This is where I will, if you are not already familiar with it, introduce you to the DISC system of identifying how various personality types interpret what you are saying to them.  It’s a complex subject but I break it down into the basics and help you see how you can take all of what you learned in this course and tailor it to fit the needs of the individual personality types so that true communication will take place.

So, if you are ready, let’s get you registered and then jump right into this essential subject of communication. You will be amazed at how differently you will be treated by those around you as your communication skills improve.  And That Is A Great Confidence Boost!

 

Smarter Brain, Better Life: Brain Training and More

image of brain power

It’s Time For You To Learn How To Train Your Brain and Increase Your IQ, Focus and Creativity!

  • Are you having trouble concentrating? There are ways to increase your IQ and your focus.
  • Do you need to work faster but you try and try without seeing results? You can do it by following the right training.
  • There really are ways that you can boost your intelligence and your brain power to accomplish almost anything.

If you could increase your brain power, then theoretically you could accomplish almost anything.

While having a healthy and strong body is highly important as well, most of us would probably agree that our activities are more reliant on our cognitive abilities rather than our physical ones.

Many people have computer-based jobs for instance, and this means that we need to use our brains to handle data, to manipulate software, or to come up with business strategies.

Much of our success comes down to our ability to interact with others…

Which of course is very much dependent on our intelligence and our brain power.

Whether you’re giving a presentation and choosing the best words to communicate your message, or whether you’re in an interview or date setting and trying to quickly find the wittiest or funniest response to a question.

And even when an activity seems ‘physical’ on the surface, it is in fact very often just as much cognitive.

Take sports for example, which require you to be aware of the positions of your team mates and opponents and to use your body efficiently and accurately through space.

In this course we will cover:

Becoming Limitless. The Neuroscience of Intelligence and How it Works.  Neurotransmitters, why we need them and how they work.  Brain Plasticity, why it’s important and how to enhance yours.  We discuss Nootropics, the whys and hows and do they really work.  Nutrution plays an important part in your physical health so it stands to reason that nutrition place an important part in a healthy brain as well.  We will spend an entire sectin on brain nutrition.  Just like the rest of your body your brain can be trained and section five will teach you how to train your brain.  You will learn memory training excercises and a plan to upgrade your brain.  And then finally, a section on mindfulness to help you keep that new, fully upgraded brain at ease when it needs to be.
