  • Selling in a Skirt - The Chief Marketing Officer & The Market Psychologist

    in Women

    Selling in a Skirt with Judy Hoberman with her Guest Sheryl Adkins-Green & DJ Swinyar:


    Since Sheryl joined Mary Kay Inc. in January 2009, she has been instrumental in leading the development of a product portfolio strategy that is generating a sustainable stream of innovative skin care, color and fragrance products. She is driving the development of strategic digital marketing and social media initiatives that are building brand loyalty and enabling independent beauty consultants to successfully sell Mary Kay products anytime and anywhere. Sheryl brings a wealth of knowledge to the Chief Marketing Officer role not only from her Mary Kay experience, but also from her tenure as an executive for several notable Fortune 500 companies including Alberto-Culver, Cadbury-Schweppes, Kraft Foods, and Citigroup where she was a Regional President in Retail Banking.


    DJ Swinyar - In speaking I am able to talk about strategies I used to climb up and out from the bottom. In high school I was voted most likely to live at home with my parents forever and most likely to be a stay at home dad. Since then I have learned about how to shift the psychology of an under achiever and the necessary habits to overcome natural laziness. After teaching myself, I now teach others how to be motivated even when they don't feel like it! In investing, I use a unique approach. I hold a BS in Psychology and the way I analyze the stock market is based on the belief that the stock market is ALL psychology. I even call myself the Market Psychologist. One humorous example of the market's psychology is that after the crash of 2008, the S&P 500 bottomed out at $666. It is interesting that once this point was hit, people didn't dare go any lower.

    Chief Jane Castor:Community Policing And Innovative Approaches To Reducing Crime

    in Current Events

    Join us on Monday, April 27, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. for a very special interview with the retiring Chief of the Tampa Police Department.    Jane Castor’s decisive leadership is evident in all aspects of her 31 year career. She was elected the first
    female president of a police academy class and 26 years later, she became the first woman to lead the
    Tampa Police Department. Chief Castor has redefined community policing in her hometown and driven
    down the crime rate with her innovative approach to fighting crime.
    Over the course of her career, Chief Jane Castor built a reputation for working side by side with
    residents, community leaders, business owners and neighboring law enforcement agencies to reduce
    crime and improve the quality of life in Tampa. Those community partnerships are the foundation of
    TPD’s dynamic crime reduction strategy, “Focus on Four.” Since its induction in 2003, the plan has
    reduced violent and property crime by 70%.    


    Jane’s strong leadership style is balanced with her efforts to help Tampa’s most disadvantaged children.She recently opened the doors of a multi-million dollar gymnasium for the Police Athletic League. The new facility is now serving more than 300 at-risk children. The department also opened a brand new safe haven for children called the RICH House. It’s the second of its kind offering a safe environment for children to thrive and for parents to connect with social services. Chief Castor’s commitment to at-risk kids is exemplified in her new Young Adult Police Academy. It targets kids on the verge of becoming involved in crime.


    Join us as we say farewell to Chief Jane Castor and commend her for serving the City of Tampa and it's diverse communities with distinction.

    Officer Michael T Slager

    in Current Events

    In the three-minute video, Slager can be seen approaching Walter Scott after shooting him, yelling at him to “put your hands behind your back.” Scott is motionless, face down on the ground. Slager then handcuffs Scott as another officer comes to help Slager.


    “It’s not about race. It’s about power,” attorney L. Chris Stewart, the Scott’s attorney told the Los Angeles Times. “That officer thought he could just shoot this man. He thought Mr. Scott was expendable.”


    At a press conference Tuesday night, Stewart said Slager “just casually shot a man in the back that many times. It speaks to the value of human life, which is a bigger issue than trying to just make this a small issue of race. This is a bigger issue of human life and the value of it. And when people start respecting that more, it won’t matter what color you are.”


    Stewart, the Scott family’s attorney, said anyone who watches the video can clearly see it was murder. He said he is “disappointed that the initial reports were totally on the side of the officer. The spokesperson for the police reported that ‘the man tried to grab the Taser’ and once again if we’d just took the initial newspaper reports, it would have been ‘why’d that guy grab the Taser, he shouldn’t have tried to hurt a cop.’ But that wasn’t what happened. And the truth came out.”


    State Rep. Justin Bamberg, an attorney, said at the press conference, “Regardless of what may have happened leading up to this shooting, at the moment (Scott) turned and ran, and was no longer a threat to the officer or anybody else, that officer was completely and wholeheartedly unjustified in gunning down Mr. Scott. He did not shoot once. He shot seven times, paused, and then fired an eighth round.”

    APS Cheating Scandal Verdict/SC Police Officer Guns Down Unarmed Man

    in Current Events

    Tonight it's realer than ever on "It's Real Talk Radio" as we have 2 major topics we're covering. On the first half of the show we'll be discussing the "Atlanta Public School Cheating Scandal" which has been a nationally recognized case that has just about come to an end as a jury has found all but 1 of the accused staff guilty of Count 1: Conspiracy to violate the racketeering influence and corrupt organizations act. Some were found guilty of other crimes but Count 1 was the most serious. Upon sentencing, these ex-staff members of the APS System could be facing a lot of time behind bars and the question we're asking our listeners is do you agree with the outcome, or do you think sending them to jail was too harsh of a penalty considering the crime? One thing's for sure, you know we're gonna keep it real with our perspectives.


    On the second half of tonight's show, we'll be discussing Officer Michael Slager's fatal shooting of Walter Scott. Officer Slager, a South Carolina Law Enforcement officer, gunned down an unarmed man by the name of Walter Scott after he tried to flee from being severely Tasered . The footage that was recorded by Fayden Santana, a man who happened to be in the area with a camera phone, doesn't show what took place before Walter Scott took off running and was ultimately gunned down in the process, but what it does show is he didn't at the time of fleeing oppose a threat and as a result was shot 5 times including 4 shots to his back.


    How do you feel about Officer Slager's decision? Was it bad judgement, was it cruel intent and ultimately murder in cold blood, or do you actually agree with Officer Slager's use of deadly force? You can believe we're gonna keep it real with our opinions on what went down so make sure you don't miss out! Call in # 347-838-9540
