Carol just completed the final conference call for a director in Singapore who needed to overcome some perceptions about being “out for himself”. The client profusely thanked Change Masters for making a huge difference in his life. He said it redefined how he wanted to be for the rest of his life at both work and home. His sponsor said his improvement was a “12” on a scale of 1 to 10. He now has lower stress, and so do those who work with, and for, him. It is great feedback like this that keeps us fully engaged. We are thankful for the opportunities to impact people’s lives.
This President’s Letter touches on happiness, power and politics, strategy, technology, and the context of humor.

$31,000 Per Month in Tips
A friend of mine was concerned about his son’s income potential with an English Literature degree from a small liberal arts college. His son was a junior at the time. The father knew his son was doing weekly video podcasts from his bedroom, and that he had received some fan mail. What he was surprised to learn was that his son was earning $120,000 that year from advertising. The son now has multiple podcast channels and is able to buy a nice house, get married, and live a comfortable financial life. That surprise came five years ago.
Seeing the Future is the Currency of Strategy
It is now 2017. Today, live-streaming is a way many musical groups and comedians are earning money.

Tech Tip: Overcoming one of the biggest fears just became easier.
A senior and experienced executive called with some uncharacteristic fear in his voice. It turned out that he had committed to speak to an industry conference with several thousand people in the audience. He would be using a teleprompter for his speech. He had only used a large teleprompter once before, and he remembered it not going well.
He wanted to practice his speech with the moving script of the teleprompter. Until now, that request would have required a teleprompter operator, and some computer software that most people do not possess.
A recent breakthrough is the [more …]
