Here Are your Weekly Tips:

Tip #1 – Tip Video!


Tip #2 – Some Patience Required!

One of the most ironic things I run into as a teacher is the question from children and adults alike – “How long before…” fill in the rest!

The best answer I’ve heard is: “How long did the doctor give you?”  But seriously, it takes a true commitment to master anything.  whether you want to be a medical doctor, a top attorney, an athlete, a musician, a painter, an actor – anything!  It all takes dedication and patience.  As long as you stay true to your dreams, you can’t fail!

“The difficulty lies, not in the new ideas, but in escaping the old ones, which ramify, for those brought up as most of us have been, into every corner of our minds.”

John Maynard Keynes
1883-1946, Economist
