IBM275-BreakthroughLast week, I cracked the $100/hour mark by holding a live workshop for about 20 business people in Tokyo on the topic of global communication. Previously, I had been at about $25-$50/hour for individual lessons so this was quite a mental breakthrough indeed. Just wanted to share here simply because I have no one else that will appreciate this achievement in my other circles. Cheers!
