Music is a Moral Law

Musices opusculum... Bologna: 1487

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything; It is the essence of order and lends to all that is good, just, and beautiful.”

Sacramento Speaker Program

I’m glad to call Jim Pelley a friend. Over the years he’s helped make our classes and workshops better. After 25 years of successfully speaking to INC 1000 businesses, Jim is offering a program to educate the rest of us. I liked what Jennifer Bourn had to say:

“…It is very rare that a successful, well paid, professional speaker shares their business strategies and secrets. Combining techniques on how to craft your presentation, get bookings, and connect with your audience, along with the ins and outs of the ‘mysterious’ speaking business makes this a must attend event for anyone who wants to grow their business with speaking or become a professional speaker.  I know I’ll be there!”
