Back when I was about to conduct my second solo program, I received an email from someone requesting to be a Dale Carnegie instructor. He wrote to me explaining that he had done some technical course development in the past and he was looking to branch out from his software background to do something new.

‘How To Stop Worrying and Start Living’ is a fabulous book by Dale Carnegie which gave me a whole new perspective on life and  some wonderful techniques to quiet my worried mind.
