The Humor Advantage Philosophy and Commitment
We believe that life is a never-ending process of growth. Each person is infinitely valuable and possesses vast untapped resources for greater success, contribution, joy and personal satisfaction. We believe people can live abundant fulfilling lives if they accept personal responsibility, learn and apply timeless principles, practice wellness producing habits, discover their dreams, set life goals, and have a challenging career or viable business vehicle for creating financial abundance, along with the time and freedom to enjoy it. We believe true success is experienced when our lives are balanced. All of our programs, products and services are designed to guide you towards that balance.
We are committed to making a difference by giving
back to the community. We offer The Humor
Advantage each year at no charge to all
Club Members to help them cope with
illness by understanding how powerful humor is to
healing. Yvonne is involved in her church and community
and encourages others to do the same. "Being
able to give is the greatest gift of all."
"Training can be beneficial or a waste of time, depending on your approach to it and the attitudes you have towards self-improvement!"
