INVESTING IN YOURSELF
What Inspires You
Where do you get your inspiration from? A conversation? A meeting? A class? An adventure? A book? A work of art? Dinner with a friend?
To inspire ourselves, we must invest in ourselves. When it comes to investing in ourselves - our mental agility and personal growth - we shouldn't put a price tag on that. Most of us do not have an inexhaustible supply of money, yet we should budget for personal development. What we invest in gaining knowledge, will come back ten-fold to us. I am a perfect example of this. I had years of OTJ experience and was considered to be an expert in body language and detecting deception. Eight years ago I invested thousands of dollars in those same subjects! It was one of the best investments I ever made. I grew in ways I hadn't thought of. I am continually seeking out knowledge from others and sharing my knowledge with others. If training inspires you, take it! If you want to push yourself to grow, personally and professionally, do it!
"There is no wealth like knowledge, no poverty like ignorance." ~ Buddha
Please contact me with any questions about the knowledge I can share with you.

INTERNATIONAL SPY MUSEUM
"Our team loved your session today. Thank you so much for volunteering and for taking the time to test our system and to conduct the virtual training. It’s not easy to talk to a screen and get no reaction but there was a great deal of engagement and note-taking going on. The content was excellent and one of our VP’s told me she used something she learned in a conversation with a team member after the session. You are a rock star and we loved hearing from you today."
"I didn't realize how effective elicitation was until you guys elicited information out of me and I had no idea what was happening."
