Motivation speakers in 1980s did not have much ground to gain because it is not even possible to have one financially wealthy person for every 10. A financially wealthy person will need the services of so many people even he does not run a corporation. Bank employees, carpenter, mason, electrician, painter, garbage collector, street cleaners, clothes sewers, livestock tenders, farmers, postman, fireman, policeman, etcetera.
My experience being an associate of a motivational speaker and how I came to realize all these can be read on my lengthier article at HubPages. Please click on the title above should you want to read about it. Thanks!
