Same Path Different View

As with most areas of my business life things tended to happen by accident. The main example being back in the late eighties early nineties I trained a couple of girls for a show. Two turned into three – three turned into thirty – before I knew it I had a hundred clients on my […]

Legs and Learning

You are certainly never old enough –or know it all to learn. Even after all these years –I learn something or re-learn something that has been gathering dust in the back of my mind. The points I am going to explain here are basic as hell –but non-the less soooo- valuable. Recently –as many of […]

#healthyhappystrongbasiclife
