But it's a curse too because
I lie awake nights thinking that there are thousands
of unhappy people out there who could be living
the life they love IF ONLY THEY KNEW HOW
TO GET ON A TEAM!
Ever since WISHCRAFT was
first published in 1979, I have been barraged by
requests for more information, more advice, more
tips on how to start and run a SUCCESS TEAM. The
mail and the phone messages started piling up, and
I just couldn't get to everyone. I wrote TEAMWORKS
in 1989 as an attempt to give people more specific
information on running teams.
However, many people still
had questions that were unanswered in either book,
and they were having difficulty making the transition
from the books...to a living room full of strangers
eager to help them achieve their most cherished
Then, I came up with the
idea of a workbook kit that would give you everything
you need to start and run a team, a magical package
that would come in the mail and contain exactly
what you need to find people to be on your team,
workbooks for every member that tell you what to
do every step of the way for the first 8 weeks,
and even an audio tape of me, encouraging you and
giving you easy-to-follow directions. The 8-WEEK
SUCCESS TEAMS WORKSHOP KIT was born.
Suddenly my small office
in my NYC apartment was piled high with bright red
and white notebooks, and UPS boxes. Soon they grew
and took up space in the bedroom, crowding into
my sons' rooms, and covering the dining room table...
We hadn't even done any advertising, but the orders
were coming in...and the reviews were gratifyingly
positive! People who had been reluctant to recruit
members were suddenly putting together multiple
teams! And people who were leaving the seminars
with stars in their eyes were going home with something
they could put into action the next day.
I am happy to say that the
entire Success Team kit with all original materials,
plus some great new stuff, is now completely online.
Look at it this way: if you
buy the 8-WEEK SUCCESS TEAMS WORKSHOP KIT, that's
6 fewer people I'll have to lie awake worrying about
