    Great information. The point system was fixed, but something went awry this morning – no points for logging in or post to FB. Still, very useful tips. I’m really enjoying these vids as they are short, to the point and packed with info.

    • Jerome Espy says:

      I agree. I love the information, but I’m frustrated by the glitches in the recording and points system.

      • Infinitehi4 says:

        Several of us seems to have been shortened on our points and it’s sad but I take the information as a great substitute.  In setting up a non-profit I wondered about listening to these videos but now I am grateful I did.  It helped me to realized that an exempt organization is a business as well.  This same information is applicable for IHI.

        • Jerome Espy says:

          Great points. This is applicable for any company or non profit.

        • says:

          I run a non-profit as well and to not treat it as a business would be a HUGE mistake. Some of the biggest businesses are non-profits i.e. Blue Cross/Blue Shield, YMCA, and others.

    Melinda great tips. But if one’s business is suffering  — the model seen is not one that will make other jump in with both feet.
    I am also thinking that what I look at as success and be seen differently by others.
    I am somewhat an overachiever so I dream big but keep missing the mark.
    This forum is a great supplement to other sources of help I am getting.
    Here is a flower from my garden to get your week started.

  6. Elaine Jackson says:

    To take my training business internationally I may have to disclose the variations in income. Because of the behind whipping the economy has delivered to me — the books do not look good.In my industry even the huge trainers are dropping their prices.  Total madness.  Someone from another country offered PMP training for $30 — going cost for this training is about $1,200.  What was a shocking eyeopener for me.
    May family complains that I should hold firm and not change my prices.
    Well they had lobster last week and did not complain.Any suggestions.

    There is no video visible to allow me to watch today’s video. Wow. How have those people been able to get 15,000+points? I guess it is like life. No one said it was going to be fair. Just that it is going to be. I’m trying not to let his depress me. Maybe this is a social experiment
