Quote of the Month

"If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten." -- Tony Robbins

Tip of the Month

When speaking, don’t be afraid to take an unpopular position if you are able to support your arguments with credible facts. You won’t always be “preaching to the choir,” so realize you must know the arguments for and against your position and that it can be very useful in your speech to recognize and deal with any counterarguments to your position. It tells your audience you know there is more than one side to the story and that your side is the most credible and worthy of their attention.
