2016 Professional Diary

How do you get to a million dollars in the stock market?     Start with ten million.

How might you one day practice hypnotherapy the way Dr. Kweethai does?     Be born a genius.


Seriously, the way to achieve success in the stock market is to not just work hard, but work smart. And the way to achieve success in hypnotherapy is not just to be smart, but to also work hard.


This blog post was supposed to be continuously updated throughout 2016. But I (Steve) had other priorities. Then there is the fact that Dr. Kweethai reads so many books I eventually lost track.


I originally suggested...It will serve as an unofficial record of the ways that Dr. Kweethai stays on top of her game. Perhaps more accurately, it will log her continuing education. Not that she needs any more education, but she persists in learning more and new things because that is 1) her nature and 2) how she is able to relate to such a wide variety of clients and their issues.


I might finish this at some point, but even keeping up through the beginning of September, you can see we are letting moss grow between our toes...
