In Today’s Episode
Have you ever considered the importance of working out your mind, just like you do your body? Do you realize that the thoughts you continually think will become your core belief system, and ultimately control your mind and health? Today we are talking with a mind expert, Lee Lovett, about mind exercises to help you take control of your future.
Lee began his career as an attorney, and has authored several books on communications law. He also co-founded approximately 100 businesses (mostly related to telecommunications), nearly all of which were sold to public companies and are still operating today. Long retired, Lee is a devoted family man with a long marriage, four sons, and 13 grandchildren. In 2015-16, he released four books on Amazon: Happiness in Seven Steps; The Watergate Rhymes; Stuttering & Anxiety Self-Cures; and WORDS You Need to Know. He was also our guest on Vidal Speaks Episode 69: “How a Cure for Stuttering Can Help All of Us.”
Lee’s primary charity is helping fellow stutterers cure themselves, which he does by giving away his book and Skyping with stutterers, no charge. More info about Lee can be found at LeeGLovett.com and "No More Stuttering," by Lee Lovett.
