“Lanny Bassham’s company, Mental Management Systems, has been making champions for years!  Sports and business professionals have been gaining the competitive edge by following Lanny’s proven system for improving performance under pressure.


Now Heather Sumlin, Mental Management Director and coach, has taken Lanny’s successful system and tailored it to specifically support the stage performer. Whether you sing, dance or speak on the stage for your profession or simply for competitive outlet, Heather’s new CD, “Mental Management for Stage Performance”, will help you control those stage nerves and improve your mental stamina while in front of an audience. Paired with Lanny’s book (“With Winning in Mind”) or on its own, “Mental Management for Stage Performance” helps us understand the helpful and harmful thought patterns we bring with us into the spotlight, our fear of audience rejection, how our self-image determines our performance and why “over-trying” is the worst thing you can do in competition.


Heather easily incorporates the “technical” science behind the conscious and sub-conscious thought process into this easy, conversational CD and interjects her own experience as singer, recording artist and stage performer. You can tell Heather understands the desire to deliver our best to the audience, and to experience those winning performance moments!  Add this new CD, as well as other products from Mental Management Systems, to your performance “tool-kit” and perform up to your potential under pressure – every time!” . . .
