Recession Inspiration? The Ultimate Reverse Commute: Think Outside the Border!
By Marian Cook
Sometimes I'll meet a person with a wonderful idea, and, after I smack my head, I'll say, "Why didn't I think of that?" That was certainly the case when I heard what Dr. Debi Yohn and Winton Churchill (yes, he is related to Sir Winston) are up to. Their basic premise: create income anywhere in the world from your home, and, to reduce your costs of living, make that home somewhere beautiful, exotic and cheaper than the US. As much as I love Chicago, the thought of an affordable luxury lifestyle on the beach sounds intriguing. How could that work?
WITI Teleclasses & Webinars
Participants in these teleclasses and webinars have made major changes in their lives, after just the first class!
"Selling has Nothing to Do with Selling! "
Begins August 11, 3-4pm ET (12-1pm PT)
The underlining theme of this presentation is that sales people should stop selling, presenting, answering objections and closing and should instead play the role of a "change agent." Join WITI and Richard P. Farrell as we explore this transformative process.
This class is INCLUDED in WITI membership... Click here for details!

Join WITI @ Disney Keys to Excellence in Columbus and Honolulu!
Disney Keys to Excellence
September 9, 2009 • Columbus, OH
Disney Keys to Excellence &
Disney Keys to Inspiring Creativity
September 15 & 16, 2009 • Honolulu, HI
WITI Welcomes the Disney Institute to Columbus, Ohio and Honolulu, Hawaii in September
It doesn't take any training to recognize that the world's economy has taken a significant downturn. It does take effective and proven professional development training to guide impacted organizations back to the summit.
The Disney Keys to Excellence program and the Disney Keys to Inspiring Creativity program are rare and affordable opportunities to learn best business practices from Disney insiders, and discover ways to easily and immediately adapt and apply those best practices to pick up the pace in these slow economic times.
Organizations from across the nation and around the world have learned proven philosophies, adapted critical lessons, and implemented effective processes to reap the rewards of improvements in leadership, management, service, and brand loyalty.
Professional development doesn't cost - it pays. It pays by creating a framework of focused energy in a vacuum of uncertainty. It pays by helping an organization gain share in a slow economy. It pays because it has been proven to strengthen employee morale and retention, which will be critical to emerge from tough times.
IMPORTANT: Please use promotional code WITIMNE to receive $50 OFF PER GUEST when registering. Additional group discounts are available. DOUBLE THE MAGIC: Register for both Honolulu events and receive an extra savings of $35 per event.
TO LEARN MORE AND REGISTER GO TO: www.KeysColumbus.com or www.KeysHawaii.com
No prerequisite training required.
