Telling Isn’t Selling

I read a rather plaintiff and disturbing newspaper article recently which eloquently describes the financial and emotional impact that redundancy can have on a family. Entitled ‘Jane’s husband doesn’t have a job any more…..and she can barely live with the [Read More]

A valuable lesson from Iran

Recently I read an article by Wolfgang Riebe who is a motivational speaker from Germany.    (Yes….came as a big surprise to me too!) . He talked about a visit he had made to Iran and how impressed he was by the many kind and pleasant Iranians he met while he was [Read More]

Two…Four…Six…Eight…
