In business, there is one "superhero power" that rules them all.
The fact is, you could have the best product in the world, but if you don't know how to market it, no one will buy it.
The flip side is that you could have the most worthless product in the world (think of the "Pet Rock" from the 80s) and millions would buy it if the marketing is right.
The science of "copywriting" is the art of using persuasive language to get people to say "YES!" to your product or service...Read the rest of this article »
Over 40 years ago, the founders of NLP discovered that all of our experience of “reality” is dictated by the pictures, sounds and feelings that run like movies in our mind. Not so much what they are, but how they're stored.

I remember when first started to learn NLP, one of the first things I discovered was that the unconscious mind does not process negatives. It literally doesn't understand concepts like no, don't, won't, shouldn't, can't, mustn't, stop. I took this knowledge home and began telling my kids what to do, instead of what not to do. People were always exclaiming how amazing my children were, and how great a dad I must be because they always listened!
And that's just one example! Using principles like this has allowed me to connect with, influence, lead and to help empower tens of thousands of people.
