Develop Your Sense of Humor
Want to decrease your stress and increase your fun? Learn how to think like a comedian. They do it all the time.

Ever notice how people respond to humorists, comedians, and class clowns? People like to be near them don't they?

Do you ever marvel at a comedian's ability to take even our worst tragedies and turn them into something we can all laugh at?

And doesn't it feel good to laugh when you've been stressed out at work or at home?

Wouldn't it feel good to be able to do that even when times are tough?

Now you can!

For the last seven years, I have been using the science of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to reverse engineer how comedians think. And I discovered a few simple secrets that separate the comic mind from yours or mine.

During that time, I've also had the good fortune to work with Karyn Ruth White, a standup comedian and speaker, with over 20 years experience. Together, Karyn and I have done comedy workshops to test out my findings.

Using her experience with comedy and my research into the comic mind, we've created a 192 page book to help you learn how to think like a comedian.

Wouldn't it be great to "channel" your favorite comedian when you're dealing with an especially difficult customer or family member? You can! There's an exercise I call: "Channelling Robin Williams" because I used Robin to help me deal with my teenaged step-daughter.

And, if you want to step up to becoming a standup comedian, you'll find a step-by-step guide to creating and developing humor. There are three main steps:

Prospecting for Humor
Mining the Humor
Refining the Humor
