Awaken that part of your brain that performs mathematical calculations.
Gaining an intuitive understanding of mathematics and the ability to think quantitatively is of enormous benefit, personally and in business. Not just because you can solve math problems, but because you develop a very potent way of thinking and of solving all kinds of problems--even if they aren't math problems.
And, of course, you need the math skills anyhow.
Ten more reasons to buy this course and know this material:
10. Most people are uncomfortable with math--you want to be able to do math easily.
9. Math incompetence is a major source of stress.
8. Having this knowledge allows you to focus what you really want to
do--rather than cope with math-related stress.
7. This course is a lot quicker than sitting through a semester of
6. This course focuses on what you really need to know, in a way you
5. Poor time math performance can haunt you for life. Good math
performance can provide life-long benefits by allowing you to get the best deal,
manage your finances, and so on.
4. This knowledge helps you make the right decisions.
3. The right approach to math saves time and energy.
2. By taking this course, you gain insight into specifics of making
math easy for you to do.
and the number one reason to buy this course and learn
1. You owe it to yourself to know this
information. Why limit yourself to a continual state of math-related dependence
on others, when this knowledge can put you in charge?
This looks really interesting but I can't figure out what you are sending or how you are sending it.
These are downloadable files. In other words, you get download instructions as soon as the buying part is done and you get the files right away.
What is it that I'm going to get and how? Is it a file that I’ll download? Is it mailed?
As soon as your purchase is complete, you will receive download instructions both on screen and via e-mail. You download self-extracting zip file that contains the course material. Depending on the course, the individual files will be in the rich text format or in the e-book format. Most materials are in the easier-to-handle rich text format.
Are we talking about a lot of pages for me to read?
Here's something that pleasantly surprises most people about these.
If you look at a typical $99 professional book, most of it is filler. These courses don't have the filler. Ditto for $995 seminars covering the same information. Our courses get right to the meat, saving you the effort of wading through pages of nonsense. We don't mass up the high overhead of generating the filler, and we pass the savings on to our customers.
Do your courses on project management prepare me for the various certification routes of the Project Management Institute?
No. The material does not focus on exam preparation. It focuses on improving your real-world skills. However, what you learn will not impede certification.
Are you one of the approved (by PMI) course providers?
No. We are not affiliated with the Project Management Institute, although we may consider going that direction. Our goal is not to make you spend a lot
of money learning how to answer test questions. Our goal is to teach you how to do your job better.
How long does each of your courses take?
It depends on the student. These courses are essentially white papers with exercises to help you relate the information to what you are doing now. You can read the material in each course in under an hour. But, how long it takes to digest it and apply it is up to you.
Do I have to buy books in addition to your course material? Will those books have to be bought from you?
To both questions, no. You don't have to buy anything else. Each course stands on its own.
What if your course material is not clear? Are your course writers available for clarification? Since it is not possible to read all material at one shot, and collect all questions at the same time, will the course writers be available as needed or on a one time basis?
a. It will be clear.
c. Your success is important. If you have a question that is germane to the material, and not a probe for free consulting services, we will help you understand the material. We have kept the prices low, because not everyone can afford $995 for a two-day seminar that amounts to little more than a book promo. This is not a book promo.
What if I have other questions?
We'll answer to whatever extent is reasonable. It may be possible that you will ask questions that require developing a new course--some aspect of successful project management we didn't cover and that is not part of the normal project management training regimen. In that case, you would get the new course for free.
Do you have other courses?
Yes, and we are developing more. You can always write to us with specific needs, and we will adjust our product development accordingly. Also, it's a good idea to check Mindconnection on a regular basis, just to see what is new.
Who writes these courses?
That depends on the subject. For example, Dr. Jay Prince wrote the behavior courses based on his experience as a licensed therapist.
All of the courses are well-researched and devoid of pseudoscience. Most are written by a subject matter expert. All are reviewed by a professional editor for clarity and succinctness.
Do your courses qualify for employer reimbursement?
Possibly not, because they are not accredited. Then again, our cost is very low. So, you must ask yourself if that small amount is worth investing into the skills you need to keep yourself employed and employable.
The goal here is not to pile up paper credits. The goal is to get the information you would ordinarily get only from a lifetime of working in project management--if even then. We save you "classroom time" in the "school of hard knocks." You will recover your investment (and then some), simply because you will be that much better at what you do.
How much time can I reasonably expect to save, once I use the principles in your time management course?
That depends on how you presently approach your work. The typical student can expect to increase productivity by 50%. If you look at the way most people do their work, and then work your way through the course, you'll see why this is so. The author of that course works three full-time jobs and is Chair for one non-profit and acting Chair for another. Yet, he manages to excel in all of these roles while still maintaining outstanding health and enjoyment of life.
How many times have you looked at a math problem and felt your stomach churn? Do you make mistakes filing your taxes? Do car salesmen and other hard pressure people work you over with voodoo math you feel defenseless to counter? Help is here.
Do you feel better math skills will help you do better on your job? Would better math skills improve the way you invest your money? Spend your money? Do you encounter everyday situations where you just wish you could "do the math?" Do you have difficulty sifting through election promises? Help is here.
Do you fear your kids will grow up math-illiterate, instead of being able to shine on their SATs? Would you like to set an example for your kids, help them win a scholarship, and feel competent in this basic life skill? Help is here.
This practical math course takes you from basic addition through algebra and trig. No, you won't encounter a bunch of mysterious symbols or mathematical jargon to memorize. You will learn how to do the math. Without getting a headache from it.
The first thing we must do to overcome math phobia is to recognize that math is orderly, predictable, and logical. There’s really nothing mysterious about it.
Mathematics is, after all, the study of relationships between
quantities--numbers. In its essence, it’s a way of counting things.
Two will always be two, and four will always be four. The rules of math are far simpler than the rules of English, yet most of us speak and write with far more comfort than we feel when doing math. Put another way, math should be easy for you because you have already shown competence in something much more complicated and confusing than math will ever be.
The leaders of our public schools decided at some point that children in third grade would understand math quickly, if the textbooks explained math by using words the children did not understand. That makes about as much sense as trying to teach kids by saying, “You know that feeling you get after running a major international corporation for a few years? That’s the basis for today’s math lesson.”
This despicably stupid approach to teaching has made millions of American children feel stupid as they study math. This is how I felt, decades ago. You may have felt the same way. It’s clear to me now what distribution means and what associating means, and so you could explain to me math concepts in terms of “distributive” or "associative" properties, but attempting that with kids whose ages are in the single digits is preposterous.
This is what has set the stage for poor math performance in adults who would otherwise be adept at mathematical calculations. If math is hard for you, it's not your fault. But you can do something about it, thanks to this course.
In this course, we don’t use big words in some misguided attempt to impress administrators while leaving the student to twist in the breeze.
Nor do we even consider the complex gyrations that pass for methods of solving math problems. Those gyrations just about require a PhD in astrophysics to understand, and applying them to four-digit addition and subtraction is completely irrational. Using an irrational approach to teach the logic of math may fit well with the government way of doing things, but it’s not a way of accomplishing the goal of teaching math. Many of us have suffered math phobia as a result of such a mismatch, but that doesn't mean you have to suffer now. Help is here.
This course gives you the knowledge to correct that mismatch, overcome that phobia, and enjoy the power of being able to do practical math with ease.
Clearest explanation of math I have ever seen, 8.22.2012
Reviewer: Tim Clark (Virginia Beach, VA)
Why can't school textbooks make math this easy? Not to mention, it's actually fun now. I add stuff up in my head while other people are pecking away on their calculator app and just grin when they say "How did you do that?" My main reason for buying this was so I could stop having trouble with multiplication (fumble fingers and I get the wrong answer on my computer). But now I'm doing algebra without so much as a paper and pen! And it's easy!
I no longer fear math, 1.26.2012
Reviewer: Tina Rampel (Cedar Rapids, IA)
I bought this course out of desperation and due to some bad things that happened due to my poor math skills. I was really afraid of math, but after taking this course I don't find it intimidating or difficult.
The material was very clear, but I would also have liked audio to go with it.
Very helpful math course, 12.9.2011
Reviewer: Renee Connelly (Arlingto, TX)
I've always hated math and have not been very good at it. But earlier this year our operations manager announced he'd be retiring. I really wanted that job and had dinner with the ops man to discuss my chances of being promoted. My lack of math jumped out as a deal killer, but the ops man encouraged me to self-study and gain those skills.
This didn't seem possible, but like I said I really wanted that job so with his confidence in me helping I bought a couple of math books. And promptly got frustrated. When my son asked me what I was upset about, that led to looking online and I found this course. It actually cost less than the books I'd bought. And I had ZERO frustration.
So now I actually have that job. It's tougher than I thought it would be, but I love it. The math is absolutely not a problem, and that means I can focus on other issues. What's really funny is I pop out numbers at people without using any paper and they think I've always been this good at math!

I hated math in school, and this caused me a lot of problems in life. I finally decided enough was enough and to do something about my math phobia and lack of math skills. This math course was surprisingly easy. No jargon or mysterious concepts. Just good explanations and enough sample problems for me to see I was learning the material.
