Welcome Develop your mental efficacy in the fields of personal development, investment, management and public policy. For too long, individuals have been subordinated to dubious utilitarian imperatives. Not only have people become ambivalent and apathetic; they have diminished the role of their minds as tools for personal improvement. Success today is considered to come from subordination and mindless execution. We are expected to renounce our self-importance for the corporation, the state, the poor or the environment. The political system has undermined people's capacity to find personal validation. We act as advocates for readers by offering content publications and web-solutions so clients can reclaim their pride of place in their communities and vocational endeavours. If you like the blogs, please share with your family, friends and business associates.
