The mission of Mainly Speaking is to assist people that are “one of a million” into becoming “one in a million”. There are many people in the world today with intelligence, motivation and drive. Many will become lost stars. In a world full of electronic uniformity, your words and actions will be what sets you apart. Those who best shine are discovered, taught, directed, nurtured and become “One in a million”. Teaching, directing and nurturing are what we call "Personal Training". However, success comes from strong basic skills. Mainly Speaking assists you where assistance is needed.
No generic Apps and no one lesson fits all mentality.
