Were you aware that in just a 10 year period, over 700 people died as a result of violent crime while working in residences? That doesn't include the statistics on the thousands of people that survived their attacks or were victims of non-violent offenses such as theft.
Personal safety is not a subject most people enjoy thinking about because it makes us feel vulnerable. If you only hear or think about the nasty possibilities, it would be very frightening. This book doesn?t just give you the possibilities; it gives you real solutions you can use to get yourself out of dangerous situations so that you do not become a victim.
Would you be able to recognize the subtle warning signals given by someone who plans to do you harm?
Have you thought about how vulnerable you are when you are inside a client?s home?
Do you wish you could feel much safer just by reading a book?
Would you like information you can use today to keep you much safer without having to learn how to physically fight someone?
