An Exclusive Interview with Noah St. John – Author, Motivator

[Listen and Profit Now™]

For way too many small business owners and entrepreneurs, a major obstacle they regularly encounter is listening to the wrong adviser: themselves.

What you say to yourself, ask yourself, and think DOES make a huge difference in how well you perform in business and life.  That is the premise behind AFFORMATIONS: The Miracle of Positive Self-Talk, a new book that author Noah St. John promises will help busy people “accelerate income, boost self-confidence, and make success automatic.”

Noah St. John - Monday Morning Radio

Noah St. John shares his own AFFORMATIONS with listeners on this week’s Monday Morning Radio.

This week on Monday Morning Radio, Noah shares with listeners his own Afformations. It’s kind of like a Vulcan mind meld, only you don’t need to be a Vulcan and have pointy ears to get inside Noah’s head.
