Wealth journal

Are you waiting until you have lots of money to feel wealthy? Feel wealthy now… and then you’ll have lots of money! Paradoxical, isn’t it!

Here's how to play ball with a powerful and direct communicator.

Have you ever had to work with a Tyrant? Someone who is so overpowering they just push everyone else aside?  If you have ever worked with this style you would know it!  They don’t mean to be like they are – to them it is normal. Based on my Communication DNA model these are what […]
