    Ready for a makeover?

    We all dream of transforming ourselves. But there’s no need to spend a lot of money on a wardrobe that will be dated next season. Invest in your communication skills instead, and you’ll experience a lasting increase in your personal power.   

    It’s a connection that the English language itself recognizes. Originally, the word grammar referred not just to skill with words but also to general knowledge, including knowledge of the occult: The old French grammaire meant both grammarian and magician. Those who knew their grammar were considered magicians by those who didn’t.

    A close cousin of grammar was glamour – Scottish for an enchantment, a spell of the sort that wizards cast on unsuspecting princes. Today, of course, glamour is the quality of celebrity, that extraordinary charm that bids cameras to flash and red carpets to unroll.   

    Become more articulate and your confidence will grow as well – and that makes for a double-whammy that audiences can’t resist. With a little effort, you’ll become a writer and speaker whom others find spellbinding.

    Lee Rambo? Just look at her surname. She is tough, she will make you work, she will challenge you, she will test your limits and, just like Rambo, she will win. Lucky for you, hew means your results.

    I’ve never met another teacher so focused on individual needs. It is not just a teaching methodology; it’s the way she lives and breathes. Try her and, if you don’t like it, I will refund your money.
