Brokers are often smothered by one motivational speaker after another at industry conferences. But at your next conference, be careful - even the best in the business can leave you burnt.
21 people were recently treated for second and third-degree burns after being encouraged to walk across hot coals to encourage motivation.
It was part of speaker Tony Robbins's 'Unleash the Power Within' seminar, in which 12 lanes of hot coals were laid out on the grass at a nearby park.
The San Jose Mercury reported witnesses heard 'screams of agony'.
Meanwhile, the Best Headline of the Week award goes to the Sydney Morning Herald for calling the story Burning Ambition.
