FOR HELPFUL SITE-SEEING
Here’s a list of Web sites that I visit again and again. As you can
guess, I have earmarked these sites as "Favorites," so I can return
to them easily. My guess is that some of them will become your favorites as
well, once you have used them.
AUDIO & VIDEO
1998—one year after I launched Championship Communication—I started relying
on Mike Stewart of Soundpages to teach me audio production and, several
years later, video production. And Mike will tell you that I am not
technically oriented by nature.
With Mike’s help, I have produced numerous audio CDs, along with 40 videos
that appear on You Tube and in my blog.
So whether Mike is directing a seminar or coaching an individual, he is the
“go-to guy” for audio and video training.
I encourage you to use the link below to view my brief video about Mike’s S3
Media Player, and then watch his short video explaining how you can order
this incredible device.

Sometimes we cannot communicate clearly because we are
surrounded by clutter. We didn’t let our home or workplace get that way
intentionally--it just happened, as we said repeatedly, “I’ll straighten up
someday.” Recently, I admitted that I wasn’t going to overcome these
problems alone. I hired Monica Ricci, an active member of the National
Association of Professional Organizers, to assess my office setup, and then make
recommendations for rearranging my information, supplies, and procedures.
Monica was indescribably helpful. We designed a plan that fit my time and
budget. Immediately, I located important items that had been missing, and
acted on them. Equally important, Monica and I devised a plan to maintain
an orderly system. I recommend Monica very highly. Her company is Catalyst
Organizing Solutions, based in Alpharetta, Georgia.

As a team leader, you may be
thinking: “No need to put any more time or money into training my
people. No matter how much they talk about what they learned in a
seminar, their enthusiasm wears off within a week, and they revert
back to their old habits. Hasn’t anybody thought of a way to make
training really last?”
