New Complimentary Meeting for Your Office – Start Reading Smart
by On September 22, 2008

When was the last time you had any training to develop or polish your reading skills?

For most people, the answer is grade school. With the mass amounts of information available today from the internet, books, emails and magazines, many people feel overloaded with the material they have to read.

What would you do if you could read 2x or 3x faster than you do now?

Imagine the impact on your life, business and growth if you had the time to read more books, industry journals, newspapers or simply get through your email inbox!

Freedom Personal Development is excited to introduce the free Start Reading Smart meeting in Chicago, IL and New Hampshire.

If you enjoyed the complimentary Discovering Your Memory Power meeting, you will love Start Reading Smart!

During this complimentary meeting, you and your group will learn how to improve productivity, reduce stress, and most importantly, increase the bottom line with time saving strategies for reading faster and remembering more.

During the Start Reading Smart meeting, you will discover:

  • Techniques to improve your reading immediately
  • How the Myths of Reading are holding you back (and what the truths about reading are)
  • How to reduce your reading time.
  • What your current reading speed and comprehension level
  • How reading impacts every aspect of your life.

Benefits of Becoming a Faster Reader Include:

  • Reading More in Less Time
    You will double or even triple the amount you read in the same amount of time.  Cut the time you spend reading emails, your “To-Read’ pile, fiction or nonfiction books, web pages, technical material, newspapers and magazines.
  • Drastically Increasing Your Concentration
    The faster you read the more you pay attention and focus on what you are doing.
  • Understanding Material with Greater Depth and Accuracy
    Whether you are reading for work or pleasure, as your concentration improves, your
    understanding of the material will improve.
  • Retaining More Information
    Remember information more efficiently as your concentration and focus increase.
  • Enjoying Your Reading More
    Enjoy reading more as you build confidence and competence in your reading skills.

Rev up your reading speed, comprehension and enjoyment with this interactive, informative and exciting meeting!

Freedom Personal Development One of America
by On September 18, 2008

Inc.com ranked Madison, WI based Freedom Personal Development company number 4,633 on its annual ranking of the 5000 fastest-growing private companies in the country.

The list is the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy and list reports aggregate revenue of $185 billion.

“Our second annual Inc. 5000 continues the most ambitious project in business journalism,” said Inc. 5000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. “The Inc. 5000 gives an unrivalled portrait of young, underreported companies across all industries doing fascinating things with cutting-edge business models, as well as older companies that are still showing impressive growth.”

Freedom Personal Development (www.deliverfreedom.com) was started in Madison by Eric Plantenberg and Roger Seip in 1996. The company organizes and offers live workshops and home study courses in the areas of memory training, speed reading, goal setting, time management, attitude management and sales skills for CEOs, entrepreneurs and sales professionals in 23 cities nation wide.

Growth is an important part of the Freedom Personal Development culture. In fact, recently, when asked how the organization would approach the recent downturn in the economy, co-founder Roger Seip replied, “As a company, we’ve decided not to participate.”

In all aspects of the business, whether it’s adding trainers in new cities or expanding the variety of course offerings, growth is a number one priority, for the company, for the team members and for their clients.

The 5000 companies that made the list reported aggregate revenue of $185 billion and median three-year growth of 147 percent. Most important, the 2008 Inc. 5000 companies were engines of job growth, having created more than 826,033 jobs since those companies were founded. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and a list of the fastest-growing companies that can be sorted by industry and region can be found at www.inc5000.com

Hottest Industries for Fastest-Growing Businesses
The most notable median growth categories among the Inc. 5000 fastest-growing businesses are in the Energy category (which grew by 298%), followed by Government Services (which grew by 220%), Security (200% growth), IT Services and Software (both grew by 187%), and Consulting (which grew by 182% on average).

Industries reporting the highest median revenue are Travel ($38.8 million), Financial Services ($16.3 million), Logistics ($15.4 million) Government Services ($14.2 million), and Energy ($14.2 million).

Methodology
The 2008 Inc. 5000 list measures revenue growth from 2004 through 2007. To qualify, companies must be U.S.-based and privately held, independent – not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies – as of December 31, 2007, and have had at least $200,000 in revenue in 2004, and $2 million in 2007.
