Video Training Moving to Vimeo On Demand

Hi Everybody!

I’m posting this to inform that all my commercial video training is moving to Vimeo On Demand, exclusively. Thanks to some really terrible changes to how VAT is collected in Europa (even from outside of Europa), for a single person business that doesn’t make much money, I’d be spending more time and money on administrative rubbish than actually getting stuff done. Vimeo is not only a great resource for folks like me (and my customers IMHO), it’s the best of the bunch with high quality video and audio, no ads and no BS. So it’s a right proper fit.

Now, with that out of the way, the first re-release is Maneuvering Points Vol I. Click here for a direct link. Thanks everyone for your support, ideas and suggestions!
