HELLO DELIGHTED GUESTS at VIRTUALCafe WIM, I am delightful, just SO happy to have contact with you to-day. MANNERS POWER sounds on the tough, overpowering side. Yet, I prove it from the rich side in society.

Yes Wim we know what you said earlier that you want to pass-on from your rich Mother a thing or two that would be good to know for everyone. Fine. Why not keep this advice for yourself?  Live happily?

I can answer with two reasons. Making money is a discipline like a school course. Once you gathered it all you find the best way to teach, to pass it on. Not all rich people pay back. They are isolationists.

Yes that is sad. Still, if people get money that they are not used to they live in a 5-star hotel for a week and it is back to hardship. So what is the second reason?

YOU are my Cafe Guests from the golden 80th and 90th. I can see that you too aged a bit. When I look around you are now in your 40th and 50th, right? Just in time to mold your little happinesses.

That will be our grandchildren, Wim

Yes, the younger the better. Late high school and early university may understand my Mothers' finger pointing at me when she said in a gentle but raised voice, "good manners are for no other reason than...a way to make money. Even when the aristocracy frowned upon 'making-money' as something commoners do.

Don't mind us telling you that it has a sharp edge.

Oke, follow this

Winning accords, dealmaking, agreements on any terrain of endeavour are based on manners. Full-blown arrangements can be made to go forward far into the future on a trusting handshake that hold understanding and an excellent manner.

The success of the presentation you want to have accepted is based on what the examiners see. Just that: HOW YOU LOOK. Richard Nixon lost from J.F.Kennedy because his look and manner were not the man people wanted at the time. 

The skin CONDITION not the colour of the skin will show how healthy you are. Drink high quality water. 

One way of staying in control of your diet is by checking your STOOL:  no smell, 8"X3', sepia, floating.

Really, that? You must be kidding.

Serious. Read and copied from a medical journal. You quickly look at the result in the bathroom anyway. Everyone does. Just do not mention it at a dinner table

Add to your height with somewhat elevated shoes. The examiner looks at height because a straight upright tall figure can be taught how to lead.

Eye contact. If the job-seeker can look the examiner straight in the eye and talks without too many " eh's "; best is NO "eh's" at all.  Now you have two poits in your favour.

A suit that is clearly of a fresh and new look lets the examiner know that you highly respect the examiner and the importance of the workplace.

Speak clearly, even slowly with hand gestures that go with the things you say. Always well-appreciated. The examiner may be a bit hearing-impaired.

Good crop of hair plus homework: knowledge of the business is really interesting, so in case of lesser hair... bring more knowledge to the table. (Kennedy's hair: straight winner.)

Never hurts to read. Knowledge equals confidence. A confident manner is the last point I suggest and you have enough 'yes-nods' to pass the exam.

That is a bit of a lecture Wim. So far no questions. That is a bad sign actually because talks with a fresh view should be followed by questions. No questions means that no-one here knows what you are taking about. We will have a coffee refill and think it over. Does that still come with a free windmill cookie?

It's a virtual cafe now, fellows. If you have coffee and a cookie in front of you, enjoy. If you like to help me come to the purpose and core of MANNERS, we'll flutter back around this virtual Cafe WIM table to see if the ideas will fly. I am delightful. See you in a few days.

We are delighted with all this. Just the old Cafe WIM sphere. We'll send you a quick e-line, Wim

Hello. I too would love a copy of the book. I spent many a happy afternoon and evening at Wim in my teens. It was a home away from home.
