    Hi Leslie, thanks for sharing the strategies. It sounds simple - but the strategies are just important. As you posted a video from your biology site I went to watch a few more *lol* because I thought: This guy knows what he is talking about! You really show that you put your strategies into action and they work! Great to know. I will work on the strategies one after the other and see what I can accomplish in 2012 :)

      Thanks for the feedback Andrea. So glad to know that you found value in it (and also that you like my biology stuff too, lol).

      As you work on the strategies in 2012, make sure to stop by and let me know how they are going.

      Here's to 2012 :D

    Helloooo :) I'm listening to your podcast :)

    • http://www.becomeablogger.com/ Leslie Samuel

      @Rochelle Hanson LOL, I love how you come on here to tell me that you're listening ;)

      • http://www.simplynaturalideas.com/ Rochelle Hanson

        @Leslie Samuel I think communication is important :) I'm just trying to do my part lolol ;) Once again, Awesome podcast!!! You make a lot of sense my friend. I think the most effective tip you mentioned is telling stories. STORIES ROCK. cause they allow others to see into your world, AND they allow you to be yourself all at the same time. Speaking of telling stories, I shall go and watch to the pat flynn vid you posted :) Have an awesome day!

    *singing* 888-835-2414..... :) I think I should call the hotline lol :) I have another comment.

    And since I've already left two... well, now three... I'm going to use a different media, just so I can really engage and interact with my fellow bloggers in this learning with leslie community. Let's just take it to a whole other level. You see, because you can't hear my voice as I type this. So you don't know that I sound "like this" lol. "Or that I'm waving my hands around like this," to quote the great Mr Samuel lol. Ok that's enough fooling around. As always, EXCELLENT advice. I will now call the hotline.
