Throughout her illustrious career, Charlotte Beers has been a CEO, a Chairman, an Undersecretary of State, and the first woman to appear on the cover of Fortune Magazine. But none of those titles compare to what Charlotte is called today: Teacher, addressing women across the United States and Europe about breaking into the inner circle of decision-making, in what she calls “the era of forging ahead for women.”
Based on wisdom Charlotte has gained on her journey from a brand management position at Uncle Ben's Rice, to Chairman of two worldwide advertising agencies, to Undersecretary of State, I’d Rather Be in Charge offers sophisticated guidance from an inside source who has been in the trenches. Part personal history, part pragmatic guide, her book gives women the tools they need to gain a level of self-belief that will help them succeed in the modern workplace.
Charlotte began her career at J. Walter Thompson Advertising, becoming the first female Senior Vice President in the firm's history. From there, Charlotte was called to bring her skills as a turnaround agent to Tatham-Laird & Kudner as CEO. Her success there led her to become Chairman/CEO of Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide advertising agency. From 2001 to 2003, she served as Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy & Public Affairs, taking on the task of bringing Brand America to the world.
Charlotte currently serves on the Board of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and conducts seminars throughout Europe and the United States called “The X Factor,” “X” representing the potential of women to lead.

SHOW NOTES: In our JOYFUL ART OF BUSINESS™ series we explore how to combine the positive benefits of our professional endeavors (“business”) with the overall positive emotional return on our efforts (“joy”). The act of engaging in professional endeavors, in any capacity (i.e., as an employee, employer, entrepreneur, contractor, volunteer, paid, full time, part time, intermittently, etc.) is an expression of our ideas and creative talents (“art”). All of this is in furtherance of our mission to surpass our goals! Our episode today is, “Would you rather be a pig happy or Socrates unhappy?” (i.e., is ignorance bliss?)
Where did the show topic come from?
From a book written by John Stuart Mill. The book is titled, “Utilitarianism” and was first published in 1861.
From Frostburg University, “Is the high-strung and hardworking intellectual superior to the relaxed and benevolent airhead? Considering that high culture requires so much attention and effort, and that it does not seem to pay off too well in terms of sociability and contentment, is it really worth the price it exacts? This is the question that John Stuart Mill tries to answer in the second chapter of his book Utilitarianism (first published in 1861). In that chapter Mill offers the famous judgment (in favor of the New Yorkers, as it were) that "it is better to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied; better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied." Basically Mill contends that a highly cultured person is a happier person, a person who gets more pleasure out of life than an airhead--even if such a person experiences a great deal of frustration and dissatisfaction as a result of being educated and cultured.” (http:

Join the Business Hippies, professional musician Earl and professional painter Hannah are a team that has to create opportunities for success daily! Lets face it, there are reasons why musicians and artists are the professions of dreamers and are left behind as choices as most people grow up. There is a reason for the old saying “starving artist”. We understand this to the fullest but we also understand why these professions do not “work out” for many. Musicians and Artists fail for the same reasons that any small business fail and we succeed because we understand that opportunities are abundant if we create them!
This is going to be a jam packed 30 minutes of discussion on how we are creating opportunities to thrive and how you, regardless of your business type, can do the same!
Call in, chat in, text in! We want to hear from you!
In today's radio show, we interview Mr. Mohammed Murad of IRIS ID, Vice President of Sales. As we all know, the eye is probably the most unique structure in the human body. For example, it consists of the Retina, as well as the Sclera. Iris Recognition involves scanning and extracting the unique features of the Iris, which is the colored region between the Pupil and the Sclera. Today, we ask Mr. Murad all of these questions and much more. For example, we find out how IRIS ID was started, and how it fares with the rest of its competitors. We will also find out more about the kinds and types of applications their products and solutions serve, as well as all of the Iris Recognition hardware and software that they manufacture. Finally, Iris Recognition has also started to being used in the very competitive wireless world, and we will find out how IRIS ID plans to stay ahead in this marketplace.

Dream killers are people who constantly shoot down your aspirations with harsh negativity. I learned that when people can’t see themselves reaching for the stars they can’t, or rather don’t, want to see you reaching them as well. These dream killers can be friends, family or acquaintances. When you share your goals with these people all they can do is tell you everything that could go wrong and how unattainable success really is. The sad thing is that some of the dream killers don’t really offer these words of “wisdom” with malice, but see themselves as just being “realistic.” They feel that dreams are not reality and therefore it is there job to bring you back down to earth with their cynicism. Others believe they are simply warning you that things don’t always go the way you want and that you should be prepared for disappointment. Then we have the regular old haters who realize that you have a great idea and admire your ambition, but they can’t fathom the idea of supporting you.
The way to avoid dream killers is by keeping your dreams to yourself. Let your work and eventual success speak for you. Others will be surprised when they discover how well you are doing and you will simply chuckle to yourself because this was part of your plan all the time.
We never really know what others think of u. In all actuality, the negativity is a sign of how they view themselves because they can’t offer encouragement for something that they can’t see themselves doing. They are complacent with being mediocre and can’t understand those who want to go beyond the status quo.
Sometimes it is best to keep your dreams to yourself and allow them to manifest in secret without being contaminated with poison from dream killers.

In this exciting edition, Johanna Carroll talks with author, and Near Death Experience expert Dr. PMH Atwater.
An international authority on near-death states, Dr. PMH Atwater, L.H.D. uses the culmination of her research to establish that the near-death phenomenon is not some kind of anomaly, but is rather part of the larger genre of transformations of consciousness. She combines her 33 years of near-death research with what she was doing in the 60s and 70s, experiencing, experimenting with, and researching altered states of consciousness, mysticism, psychic phenomena, and the transformational process, to reveal what transformations of consciousness really are, why we have them, and where they lead us.
We will be taking your calls during this facinating session, so we encourage you to call-in and join the discussion.
This weeks episode will be about the APD, MAYOR BERRY and our Police Chief GORDEN EDEN. They held a rather classless shooting contest last week in which police officers from all over the country come to Albuquerque to find out who is the better shooter. Many of these police officers have killed American citizens wrongfully and have never been brought to justice for their crime. The contest will award cash and other prices to the people that win. Its a shame that out mayor and Police Chief would allow such a contest to be held here in Albuquerque after the D.O.J. ruled that in many cases APD used excessive force on the public they swore to protect. So if you want to join the please call into the show which will be held 9/16/2014 12:00pm. Thanks
