As my regular readers know, my postings are usually heavy on topical information and quite light on self-promotion. But today I am declaring it to be “Stress Management Thursday” and am featuring a short (2 minute) video about me that I hope you will enjoy. Besides being informational, it is fun. Thanks for watching.

Call me to schedule a program for your group or an individual appointment.

I look forward to working with you soon to help you find your Ideal Performance State.

Remember to be good to you!

    • Tony, Thank You for your kind comment. Creating fun and laughter does indeed help with teaching. I forget who said this, but I think it is good advice for those who teach . . . “If you can get someone to laugh, you can teach them anything.” And it sure helps to relieve a lot of stress . . .
