Welcome to True Friends International Success System

True Friends International (TFI, or just 'True Friends') is simply an organisation of people (a community) seeking to live life to its fullest, and which acknowledges that to live life to its fullest requires operating from a higher level of understanding - an understanding that:

  1. Your life only gets better when you get better (i.e. through Growth); and
  2. Prosperity comes from creating value for others (i.e. through Contribution).

Today the chief sources of value are knowledge (... to grow) and the ability to apply that knowledge (... to contribute) in a timely and effective manner. In today's economy, knowledge is the raw material of production and value creation. There is no doubt that the new world of value creation is knowledge intensive and totally different from the model that started the Industrial Revolution. This means that, to survive and thrive in this new economy, everyone of us, regardless of what we do for a living, need to shift from one time learning to lifelong learning. Importantly, the opportunities for value creation are so rewarding that it justifies the effort required for ongoing learning. 'Know-how' is what will separate those who perform (and achieve extraordinary success) from those who don't.

Hence, True Friends is foremost a learning organisation where learning is experienced as a personal transformation. You don’t gather learnings as possessions, but you become a different person as a result of your learning – a fully-integrated person; a “leader” in your own right.

True Friends provides a comprehensive system - the True Friends International Success System - to help you achieve the success you deserve.

What is the Zend Optimizer?

The Zend Optimizer is one of the most popular PHP plugins for performance-improvement, and has been available without charge, since the early days of PHP 4. It improves performance by scanning PHP's intermediate code and passing it through multiple Optimization Passes to replace inefficient code patterns with more efficient code blocks. The replaced code blocks perform exactly the same operations as the original code, only faster.

In addition to improving performance, the Zend Optimizer also enables PHP to transparently load files encoded by the Zend Guard.

The Zend Optimizer is a free product available for download from Zend Technologies. Zend Technologies also developed the PHP scripting engine, known as the Zend Engine.
