From Vision to Victory!
The journey begins with knowing what you want, your vision, and then confidently taking steps toward achieving it. It can be exciting or worrisome whether it’s a business or your personal life. Focusing on creating a vision is challenging, there are so many interesting distractions available. But “biting the bullet,” and “hunkering down,” you can get it done.
Jo Condrill Stacked the Deck with Immigration Lawyers, an International Affairs Consultant, and 12 Immigrants for her new book, Immigrants Coming to America
Just released in eBook format on Amazon.com in the Kindle bookstore, Immigrants Coming to America, is also available in print from IngramSpark.com and Amazon.com.
D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review writes:
Immigration has always been an intrinsic part of American history, beginning with the Puritans who fled England and continuing to modern times; yet the current state of social and political affairs, tempered by worries of terrorism and overcrowding, have led to its premises being questioned by those who would close many doors currently open to new immigrants.
That’s why Immigrants Coming to America, written by an author who interviews two immigration law experts in the course of her examination, provides some clear and remarkable insights at an especially troubling moment (and possible pivot point) in American history. Its special blend of history and social and legal analysis clarifies many potentially murky areas of immigration law which all Americans should understand; from the differences between green card bearers and citizens to fact-based, history-backed discussions of America’s immigration process and its pros and cons.
The collection of revelations from twelve immigrants from various parts of the world, each with very different perspectives on and experiences of the immigration process, is recommended reading for those interested in modern immigration stories and the different roots and perceptions of newcomers to America. Anyone who wants insights on both the legal and personal processes involved will find this absorbing.
In addition to the “mini-course” on immigration law, there are many reference links to official sites, nonprofit organizations, and special interest groups to shore up your knowledge. Jo’s interviews with the immigration law professors included frequently asked questions.
Twelve immigrants tell exciting, real-life stories about coming to America and making a new life for themselves. Immigrants from Pakistan, Syria, Germany, Sri Lanka, Norway, Georgia, Vietnam, and Mexico share their challenges and triumphs.
One immigrant who spoke no English became able to speak, read, and write English in 6 months by teaching herself! She shares her secret in this book. Beatrice Davis is a very successful businesswoman in Chicago today.
Paul E. White, an International Affairs Consultant, who served in the U.S. Agency for International Development and Embassy of the United States positions in Asia and Mexico, wrote the Foreword to this new book. Paul is also a Distinguished Toastmaster and a Magician.

Self-confidence takes courage. Courage comes with stretching. Failure is a fact of life. Trying to avoid failure leads us to thoughts like “I’m just not good enough.” So we stop trying. We forget about self-growth, personal development. We accept the way things are, the amount of money we make, or the educational level we accomplish.
Whether your current focus is personal development or professional development you can take charge of your life—reinvent yourself if necessary—and achieve whatever you want. I know this is true because it is the story of my life.
Any time is a great time to stop and think of where we have been in life and where we want to go. You will find an excellent tool for doing just that with a lifeline exercise. A discussion of the usefulness of the exercise and guidance in using it are on the lifeline page. This tool will help you look at “the gap” as author Dan Sullivan refers to your past. It is an excellent aid in forming the vision of your future and from there you can begin to set those long term and short term goals.
At the end of the exercise, you will be encouraged to consider what will be your legacy as you leave this world. This point has caused serious consideration by past seminar participants and users of the lifeline.
It’s easy to take the first step in building self-confidence and living a happier life than you may think. Begin with your communication skills. Once you have a starting point, the idea of self-improvement is easier to accept. Almost everyone can improve their verbal communication skills.
