Our Most Unusual "Client" Story - Training a Cat

You know all those jokes about herding cats? Well, here is a true story about training a cat.

In only 15 minutes, Dr. Bourget trained a cat to go backward down a steep loft ladder, so he would stop going down forward and falling on his head. Even though he looked "cool", after he fell on his head, she could not take it and vowed to make this trip safer. After she trained him, he went down backward from that day forward, and never fell on his head again.

If she can do this, imagine what she can do for your company!

It reminds me of a favorite quote from Oliver Wendell Holmes, 'I would not give a fig for the simplicity this side of complexity, but I would lay my life down for the simplicity after complexity.' The applications...are very powerful."

I have had the opportunity to meet many famous and powerful "World Leaders" over the course of my life, and while that is always a special opportunity, it is even more rare to meet a true "World Changer".
