"Hi Dr. Lisk! 30 years ago I took your two day seminar. Fast forward 30 years. I want you to know how instrumental you have been in my business career. I kept the book you provided on my desk--it has traveled with me all over the USA! What I learned from you in those two days with you, literally changed my life for the better, and built a solid foundation for my sales and management life. I now am based in Chicago and also have a home in Florida on the 14th tee of a golf course... thanks to you--Thom Lisk. I had little success before I met you,
Dr. Lisk, and I truthfully can say your Blueprints for Success program changed the course of my life for the better. I know your programs are great now too!"
