Left handers have been very succesful in music over the years and our natural “right-brain” thinking may give us an advantage in this area. Set against that is the difficulty of finding left-handed instruments and the challenge of finding a teacher who can help you to play them in your natural way!
We have been talking recently with fellow lefty Jon Engel who is the author of “Uncommon Sound – The left handed guitar players that changed music”.
This set of 2 beautifully designed and printed books is the ultimate reference guide to left-handed guitars and the people who have played them. These oversized books are 14 by 10 inches by 2 inches this, each, and weigh in at nearly 20 lbs! With over 2,500 photographs and more than 1,500 album covers it covers everything to do with the history of left-handed guitarists and the left handed guitars they have played. An absolute delight to dip into at random or to work through section by section, it will be something you will want to leave on the coffee table!
Do left handers do business differently?
We have found over the years that left-handers in business do think differently and tackle problems in different ways. Our own surveys and the results of various research projects do seem to indicate that there are more successful left-handed entrepreneurs and business people than the percentage of lefthanders in the population would suggest.
Keith was contacted recently by best selling left handed business author Robert Ashton to see if we had any common interests and if we could be of any help to fellow left-handed business people. We arranged a meeting and were amazed at how fast we got on the same wavelength – we even both use mind maps to record our ideas and plans.
We are planning to start a Left Handed Business Club where we can share resources and provide a forum for lefties in business around the world to help and support each other. We are keen to hear from fellow lefties who can contribute any resources or expertise or from people in a business at any level who would be interested in participating.
August 13th has been and gone again and, as usual, we had a great interest from Club members and the media with record numbers of visits to the Left-Handers Day website and downloads of Left Zone posters.
That’s all for this month – we will be in touch again soon
