Q. Why a
DVD / video and not a book?
A. There are some good books out there on subjects like
'interviewing' or 'resume writing', but most of this
information is already available for free on many
job-related websites. In the seven years that we spent
researching and developing our programs, we couldn't
find a single book that covered all the material that
mattered to us (getting raises, promotions, bonuses,
advancement, recognition, challenging work assignments,
working less, etc.). Also, we concluded that writing a
book wouldn't be effective for our customers if it took
them two weeks (or two months) to read and consume all
the material. Our goal was to create a video that
condensed all of the various techniques into a short
period of time and in a DVD format so that our customers
could learn the "secret wisdom" in one sitting and put
the techniques into practice the next morning.
Q. Do I
have to watch & utilize all the material before the
techniques will work for me?
A. No. The beauty of our program is that it allows you
to pick the topics you choose and skip over those that
you're not ready to utilize. Each topic is brief,
allowing you to quickly watch and absorb the techniques
that are most appropriate for you at any given time.
the techniques 'culturally biased'? Are they only
applicable in the USA?
A. No. Our programs are designed to be 'international'
in their approach and appeal. Our programs are
currently only available in English, though we have
customers in many non-English speaking countries who
rave about their effectiveness. The authors have many
years of International career experience having worked
around the world for companies in the United States,
Canada, Japan, Israel, France and Latin America.
the techniques work for my non-office job?
A. Yes. The information and techniques in our programs
have been specifically designed to address all manner of
professions including; construction, retail, restaurant
and even representative jobs such Union workers.

and my home DVD player?

Q. Do the
techniques really work? Can they be implemented right
A. Yes. Our programs are designed to benefit everyone -
whether you're fresh out of school and entering the
workforce or if you've been working for 25+ years, you
will find the techniques can be implemented
immediately. We've had students and customers implement
the techniques the very next day after attending one of
our workshops or viewing our DVD programs and get
immediate results. It really works!
