“The Neuropsychology of Self-Discipline”
Self-discipline is a subject that has always fascinated us and remains the lynchpin for business and personal success. Too frequently, however, individuals have viewed it solely in terms of sacrifice. This program which only requires minutes a day examines how you can focus on both strategic and tactic strategies to gain desired outcomes. We utilized this program over 20 years ago, and the principals hold true to this day. Similar to many self-improvement programs, the subheadings can be kind of corny, but nevertheless, we give this presentation our highest recommendation.

Not too long ago a fascinating piece of writing appeared in Forbes Magazine with the premise being that litigation is actually a much greater threat to American wealth than taxes. According to the article, this is due to American citizens being exposed to an infinite amount of liability through an overworked system of litigation. Thus, high-net worth individuals are putting “unlimited assets” at risk.

Spirits & Cuisine
For 28 bucks plus shipping, their “Burnt Almond Travel Torte” may just be the best pastry you have ever ordered. All we can say is … WOW! Light, fluffy and yet crunchy, this torte blew us away, and we do not have a big sweet tooth. Prantl’s German Bakery has been located in the Shadyside section of Pittsburgh for over 100 years. It is not cheap but in our opinion very worth it. With Mother’s day this weekend we thought it an excellent time to bring it to your attention.
