I've looked at the File Manager recently for other issues and never did anything with it. You know, worrying I might really mess something up... Anyway, thanks to you, I did it!!! Nice looking blog and family too. I'll come back and read some more later. I like where you are coming from with Attraction Marketing etc. Peace, Steve Miller,

Here is what people say about working with Carolin:

"Timing is so crucial. If you want catch a train that is heading for Success Town, hook up with Carolin Hauser NOW. She is a rising star in the industry, and like many other stars I have worked with, there will come a time when she will no longer be looking for new people in her "inner circle." Carpe Diem. Carolin has that rare combination of competency, leadership, creativity, and is simply FUN to work with. You won't be let down or disappointed.

" When you decide to take a course, you hope its not boring and that you will learn something beneficial. If its a good course, everyone, not just you, will have learned something beneficial. However, when its a great course, not only will everyone have learned something but they will have been touched and/or changed in some way by the experience. This course was the latter. Not only did it help me to make a major decision in the direction I wanted to pursue my business but each of the other course members voiced similar decisions. These decisions, we agreed, were firm, take action decisions and not just shallow hopes and dreams. It is rare and indeed special when this happens. Carolin has constructed what appears to be a simple, run-of-the-mill class. In actuality, she has crafted a thought provoking look at yourself and how you relate to and run your business. The old adage applies, "You can't judge a book by its cover!"
