Halloween treat -- Bram Stoker, author of Dracula, perhaps the most acclaimed horror novel ever. Born in Dublin in 1847, Bram Stoker published his masterpiece, Dracula, in 1897. The book was a success, and its popularity has grown for over a century. A classic horror novel, Dracula inspired the creation of adaptations such as the 1931 film Dracula, starring Bela Lugosi. Stoker introduced the vampire character of Count Dracula and tells the story of Dracula's attempt to move from Transylvania to England and the battle between Dracula and a group of men and women led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing. Written in the Victorian era, the novel touches on familiar issues: reason and science vs. religion and superstition, the rise of feminism, race, world domination, and breaking sexual taboos. Stoker did not invent the vampire, but he defined its modern form. Dracula has many supernatural abilities. He has superhuman strength equivalent to 20 men. Like all undead, he is immortal, but he can be killed by traditional vampire methods of wooden stakes, iron and/or steel weapons, wild rose, or holy water. The definitive way to kill him is by decapitating him preceded by impalement through the heart. The Count can defy gravity and has superhuman agility; he can climb upside down vertical surfaces in a reptilian manner. He has powerful hypnotic and telepathic abilities and is able to command animals such as bats and rats. Dracula can manipulate the weather, creating mists to mask his presence. He can take the form of bat, wolf, large dog, or fog. He can vanish and reappear somewhere else. He requires nothing but fresh blood, which rejuvenates him. “The blood is the life!” Dracula has not been out of print since it was published in 1897.

Impacting The Lives of Women Entrepreneurs with Amy Pearson
The Approval Trap: The Secret Reason You Can’t Raise Your Rates Attract Your Ideal Client, or Create Kick Ass Results in Your Biz and Life (And How to Fix It Right Now)
As of 2012 there were 7.8 million women owned businesses in the U.S and they are growing at twice the rate of men owned businesses. Most women, however, don't understand that failure is an essential part of the entrepreneurial journey. In fact, Judy Robinett, a top advisor to the film "She Means Business" shares that entrepreneurial ventures typically fail three times before hitting success.
My guest, Amy Pearson, is a former "approval addict" (with the occasional relapse). She is now addicted to success. Her mission is nothing short of world peace by empowering every woman on a mission to attract their ideal clients (tribe), make great money, and have an epic impact while doing their unique work in the world.
We will be discussing
How the Approval Trap prevents women in business from making more money Why women in business are so risk averse and what they can do about it How perfectionism fits in to all this Amy's interesting take on tribe building ... and her -step process to live brazen
Nationally syndicated advice columnist Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio -- "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in therapy and research.
There have been two major schools on negotiating -- Ury, Fisher and Patton's "win-win"/"relationships are everything" approach and Roger Cohen's "nail 'em to the wall" hardball approach.
Harvard Business School professor Michael Wheeler finds that these rigid, one-size-fits-all strategies often clash with the real-world realities of negotiating. Drawing on his and his colleagues' research, he finds that the most successful negotiating techniques are born of an ability to adapt while negotiating, and use agility, creativity, and wise preparation.
He'll advise us all on how to adapt (and do all the rest) in order to win in negotiation, the subject of his book we'll be discussing on the show, "The Art of Negotiation: How to Improvise Agreement in a Chaotic World."
