It Takes More Than A Great Haircut

Through vast life experiences, voracious reading, trial and error and the school of hard knocks, I've learned what works and what doesn't work when it comes to connecting with others.  My books, videos, coaching and programs provide practical connectors, based on a lifetime of learning.  They've immeasurably changed my life and the lives of many with whom I've been privileged to share my message.  They can do the same for you. 
Let me help you today!
