I don't believe in Bad News. Instead, there is News, Good News and Great News - So, let me define them one at a time:
News. News is any sort of information that I need to process. That's just part of living and something we can't escape from. And if it happens to be information that negatively affects me directly or indirectly, then I have no other choice but to muster up the courage, strength and fortitude to deal with it. In that sense, I mentally prepare myself to deal with life's adversities at any moment's notice whenever it decides to make a grand entrance. No time for self-pity or life examination.
Good News. Good News is any sort of information that puts a bright smile on my face.
Great News. Great News is any information that makes me smile from ear to ear and causes me to jump up and down. And while we're on that subject, let me start with the great news that I have for you if you are a Forbes Global 2000 or other large global enterprise.

News for Forbes Global 2000 and Other Large Enterprises
The End of an Amazing Era. Well, just in case you miss the December 31, 2016 deadline date, here is the news that I have for you and your organization. Effective January 1, 2017, VOMI will no longer offer a license for the Virtual Organization Leadership Executive Training, Assessment, and Certification solution.
However, that being said, your organization will still be able to purchase the Virtual Organization Leadership Executive Training, Assessment, and Certification solution directly offered by our business partner Virtual Organization Recruiter at their current retail price of USD $15,000 per executive instead of our current effective licensing price of $5,000 per executive (or $10,000 per executive after August 31, 2016).
Why We Are Discontinuing the Licensing Solution
We are discontinuing the Licensing solution for this reason only: VOMI has launched quite a number of New and Major Virtual Organization Initiatives this year which are focused on the actual development of the infrastructure of The New Virtual Organization World :: and which require our full and undivided attention.
These major initiatives include, however are not limited to, the following: The League of Extraordinary Virtual Organization Executives :: The New Virtual Organization World Consortium :: Virtual Residential Community Consortium :: and Virtual Campus Dormitory Consortium.
Therefore, it's time for us to move on!
As well, since the Virtual Organization Leadership Executive Training, Assessment, and Certification solution is currently being offered by our business partner Virtual Organization Recruiter :: this means that organizations who are genuinely interested in this solution after December 31, 2016 will continue to have access to it - albeit at Virtual Organization Recruiter's current retail price of $15,000 per executive.
So if your organization has been sitting on the fence or postponing making a decision, NOW IS YOUR TIME TO ACT because your window of opportunity is closing up real fast.
1/1/2017 Postscript: Due to popular demand, VOMI made the decision to continue to offer the Internal Providers License, however, at full price. The benefit of this license is that it offers a 10-Year Price Protection Guarantee.
