Prime Mover Email Correspondence Course
$3.00

Entry into 40 day+ long Email Correspondence course on concepts in the book Prime Mover by bestselling author Barry Ivan Silber.

What is a Prime Mover? A Prime Mover is the person who gets things done. They have an idea, they figure out what they want to do, and then they take the necessary action to reach that objective. If they need to enlist the support of other people, they will do it, although they will learn, more or less according to their individual capability, to lead/organize others, depending on where their skills lay.
