Only One Polar Bear With Teeth Inuit Sculpture Left

It turns out that a local customer did in fact take one of the polar bear Inuit sculptures featuring teeth yesterday. This leaves only one (and very rare) polar bear with teeth left in our Inuit sculpture collection from our gallery. It is pictured below and more details on it are available by clicking on the image.

American College Students Agree With Canadians

Well, it seems that American college students agree with Canadian students when it comes to what they thought and learned at the college diversity program by diversity speaker Clint Cora.  You can see many video clips of students from both the US and Canada talking about diversity at the college students video webpage.  Student leaders from both countries are mixed throughout the page.

Rare Polar Bear Carvings With Teeth Will Go

For quite some time, we've had two rare polar bear carvings in our gallery with teeth.  Most Inuit art carvings do not feature teeth on polar bears so the two we have from Pangnirtung are indeed quite rare.  It turns out that by this afternoon, most likely one of them will be gone as a local customer needs a polar bear as a business gift.  So at the end of today, there will be only one of these polar bears left.  If you have your eye to acquire a polar bear carving with teeth, you better keep an eye at our gallery website to see which one is left.

Gallery Owner Motivational Speaker Available For Radio Interviews

Motivational speaker, author, karate world champion and gallery owner Clint Cora is available for radio interviews.  Here's one testimonial from a station where he did a radio interview this year.

"In May of this year, we at 93.5 CHMR-FM had the pleasure of interviewing Clint Cora. The interview gave our listeners a good insight the capabilities of Clint as an entertaining and informative motivational speaker.  Clint drew from his personal experience to support his belief that we have within us the potential to become true champions."

"Clint shared the entertaining self-effacing story of his lack of athletic ability as a school boy, and how he made his way to become a Karate World Champion.  Then he shared the story of his mother’s untimely death when he was a teenager and his determination to avoid being a victim of that tragedy."

"Finally, Clint shared some of the message of his new book, “The Life Champion in You” urging us to be totally committed to what we want and to continually take action to expand our comfort zones."

"I recommend Clint Cora to other radio stations as an entertaining and valuable addition to their programming."

Nami Ohara, DJ, 93.5 CHMR-FM, St. John’s, Newfoundland

New Videos Of College Students Talking About Diversity Program

Just came back with a whole bunch of new video clips of college students talking about diversity on campus .  Their 'performances' were quite good with just single takes.  It's nice to see that the US college students are pretty well saying the same things as their Canadian counterparts which suggest that the acceptance of diversity is getting quite universal among college students.  This is a great thing since it means that the new generations are very receptive to other cultures in society.

Motivational Audio CD Book Package A Big Hit

Clint Cora was keynote speaker at a Toronto business association dinner and he briefly mentioned the diversity in today's work environment particularly in Canada which included native Canadian and Inuit people.  The real surprise was how popular his new motivational audio CD and book was to attendees.  Clint had offered his book The Life Champion In You as a separate item or the book together with his new 2.75 hour audio CD as a package.  About 75% of buyers took the motivational audio CD and book package.  This might suggest that there is definitely a trend towards using listening in addition to just reading as the way to learn about concepts and principles.

Personal Development With Adventure Travel

I just got the latest brochure from Adventure Canada which features very exclusive travel trips to the Arctic and other places in the world.  Their trips look great with lots of Arctic wildlife, Inuit communities and their Inuit art and scenery.  This type of adventure travel of course is great for personal development.  Travel to unique places in the world and getting exposed to things that one would not normally see at home can all contribute to one's personal development as a better appreciation of the world is achieved.  Indeed, travel was actually discussed as one way to contribute to personal development in Clint Cora's book, The Life Champion In You.

Arctic National Wildlife Refuge Documentary

I saw a National Geographic documentary on tv last night about the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in Alaska and the debate about oil drilling there.  It was a very interesting program outlining a very real issue with no obvious solutions at this point.  On one hand, people want to preserve the ANWR habitat as it is but on the other hand, America desperately needs another domestic source of oil of which our society has become so dependent on.

Then there are the native Alaskan people up there who need to preserve their land but at the same time, would love to make some much needed money so they can send their kids to college.

I was surprised about just how many products were in fact made from oil in our daily lives.  Again, there's no easy answers on what to do.

Motivation and Inspiration Blog

As a motivational speaker and author of The Life Champion In You, I often come across observations in my daily life that inspire me and rather than waiting to compile them in another book which could take years, I would rather make them available to everyone immediately.  This is why I also have a motivation and inspiration blog which is posted to several times per week.  So the latest on motivation and inspiration that I come across which I feel will be helpful to others, will be on this blog so make sure you check it out.

Take The Time During Recession To Learn

If one finds that life is tougher during the recession and that extra time is available due to a layoff or shorter working hours, there still is a way to benefit.  Take the time to learn extra skills by either enrolling in a course or simply by reading in the public library for free.  Even learn more about art and other topics of interest.

Also, take the time to reconnect with important people in your life as well as yourself.  I really don't think that people have taken the time to do this and recession periods will be ideal to do so.  
I discuss these very points about how to best utilize extra time during this recession with Susan Lamb during a radio podcast interview that you can listen in on anytime.  It's a 24 minute podcast and worth listening to in order to get perhaps a different and healthy perspective on this recession.

The personal growth motivational audio version of Clint Cora's book, The Life Champion In You, is now available as a CD as well as a digital download.  This audio will be great for those who prefer to listen rather than read.  Listening as well as reading will maximize the absorption of important concepts for achieving success and personal growth as presented in this book.  Clint Cora, who also wrote two ebooks on native art, also came out with an audio version of his other book, How To Get A Dream Job In Pharmaceutical Sales - Direct Inside Advice and Guidance From A Sales Manager.

Clint Cora Clickbank Affiliates Hoplink Has Changed

For those Clickbank affiliates who promote Clint Cora ebooks and audio books like How To Get A Dream Job In Pharmaceutical Sales and The Life Champion In You, the Clickbank target hoplink has changed.  This change was required since the pharmaceutical and Life Champion digital books are at two separate websites.  The Clickbank target hoplink now goes to a single webpage that allows visitors to click on the field of their interest which then redirects them to the right website.  Clickbank affiliates still earn 50% on all Clint Cora ebook and audio programs.
