I introduce readers to Amicus…the greatest possibility teacher of all time
Marina Del Rey, CA (Vocus) July 20, 2010
Motivational speaker, success coach, and writer Shawn Anderson has released a two-book personal development training program which provides 21 success secrets to increase employee performance and professional productivity. Geared for employees, entrepreneurs, and students who are looking for a tool to reach greater success, Anderson seeks to inspire readers to take a closer look at their life and what they are producing. Claudette Jaswa, Vice President of Sales & Marketing , eEmpACT Software comments, “I love this program! Every staffing company and career assistance center in the United States should give Amicus 101 to their candidates. It just flat-out has the ability to make prospective and current employees not only more job-ready, but more poised to impact a company’s bottom line.”
Amicus 101 and its companion workbook, Lessons From A. Friend, are different than most professional development books. Instead of a list of how-to-succeed do’s and don’ts, Amicus 101 takes a fresh and unique approach by sharing success secrets through the eyes of a fictional teacher named Amicus. “I introduce readers to Amicus…the greatest possibility teacher of all time,” Anderson says. “Amicus’ perspective…and his style of teaching…bring out our individual passions at a deeper level than typical motivational books. The power of Amicus’ lessons seems different because he is different.”
Daisy Larios, a Senior Sales Manager for Marriott Hotels, attests. “My sales numbers had been okay, but what I was lacking was a clear self-vision and passion. The personal development course revitalized and transformed my thinking, and my results over the last six months have never been better. It has even led to a new sales management position.”
Amicus 101 seeks to energize individuals who have become stagnant in their performance or who want to give a jolt to their personal productivity. “Sometimes it is easy to loose our mojo, and it becomes difficult to step outside our comfort zone when we let the acceptance of mediocrity or negativity rule our thinking.” Anderson says. “When that happens, the thought of personal growth can be completely unappealing. Amicus 101 charges up a person’s battery in a very entertaining way.” Anderson continues, “Amicus 101 reminds us of what we are capable of achieving. It triggers a magic switch that allows us to step forward and produce big-time results!”
In Amicus 101, each unique lesson highlights deeper insight into what it takes to not only find a more inspired level of career passion, but to ultimately catapult to a higher level of performance and success. “I think this training program is authentic power. These books helped some professional goals really take off by cementing a desire within me. The program is brilliant,” remarks Dr. Jinx Kennedy, a high school administrator. John Ireland of Los Angeles’ KCAL9 Sports Team believes, "Amicus 101 is a story that will give hope and inspiration—no matter what your circumstances.”
“My juice in life is helping other people win. We all need a small nudge to remind us that the quality of our lives…and our individual success…is always determined by our own efforts.” Anderson finishes, “That’s what Amicus 101 does. It reminds us that if we want a great life, it starts with the person in the mirror.”
Anderson, referred to by media outlets as the Extra Mile Man, began motivating people by motivating himself. Soon after graduating from University of California @ Berkeley with only $300 dollars, Anderson developed a success accountability system called S.O.A.R. (Seeing, Organizing, Acting, and Rejecting) while working the graveyard shift at a 7-11. Years later, he parlayed his success formula in his first book, SOAR to the Top! Together, Anderson’s books have sold 65,000 copies. Additionally, he reaches an international audience through the M.A.P. to Success Circle!, his free motivational newsletter that encourages people to take action on their dreams and to make them a reality.
Shawn Anderson is available for motivational speaking, corporate training, and individual success coaching.
