Over the course of twelve "milestones" and accompanyingexercises, you'll learn what you want and why, create your customexceptional living plan based on your ultimate goals, use that planas an everyday guide to living, and learn how to maintain yourmomentum and stay on track. You'll take stock of your mostimportant "clients," gather feedback on your actions, set goals andpriorities, and implement plans for change and constantimprovement. Rather than float through life, you'll take control,be your own boss, and steer You, Inc. into the black.

    Boring!

    The first hour or two of this CD set is just the author telling you about how great Me Inc is and what it is going to do for you. He repeats it on and on and on.

    I've bought tons of audio CDs and Me Inc is one of the few CD programs that I stopped half-way with. If you're thinking about getting this program, first look at the book to see if it's right for you.
