    The Power To Persuade

    in Religion

    When we are dealing with those who are not yet Christians, we need the ability to persuade them that the way of Christ is the right way. To do that we need the power of persuasion that God offers to us. Join us as this week as Pastor Bill leads us in Acts, Chapter 9, and we take a look at what that involves.

    How To Persuade Anyone in 10 Seconds

    in Business

    You’re on the most important elevator ride of your life. You have ten seconds to make the classic “elevator pitch”.

    There are books about this. But don’t waste your time. They are all garbage.

    I’ve been on both sides of this equation. I’ve had people pitching me.

    But mostly, I’ve been scared and desperate and afraid to ask someone to give me, want me, love me, all in the space of an elevator ride or in the time it takes one to ride an elevator.

    The ideas below have worked for me in the hundreds of times I’ve had to be persuasive. Either in writing, or in person. In business and in friendships and in love. I hope variations on it can work for you. You decide.

    A) Who Are You?



    B) Relax


    C) Uhhh. Yeah. Uhhh. Mmmm-Hmmm. Uh-Huh


    D) The Four U’s



    1. Urgency


    2. Unique

    3. Useful??
    4. Ultra-Specific
    5. User-friendly
    6. Unquestionable Proof?

    E) Desire

    F) Objections

    The Don S. McClure Show Live - The problem with being CONFIDENT

    in Lifestyle


    Tonight’s Topic: The problem with being confident:

    Being confident has always been one word that most people find hard to understand.

    Most of the time it is confused with the word arrogance or it’s meaning.

    Especially when men of value use and display this quality in the conquest of their dreams. For women men who lake this trait or have a hard time displaying it in their daily lives seem to be thought of as being intimidated by their beauty or intelligence.

    Which is never the case, for men who are confident.

    The men and shall I say those who lead or feel they must meet their life’s destiny are never imitated because they are true craftsmen’s of the very word confidence, using its power to persuade or guide others to the very ends of what they want to achieve.

    Featured Film: Princes of Foxes: Staring Tyrone Power, Orsen Wells, and Everet Sloan

    Film produced December 23, 1949

    In August 1500, Andrea Orsini (Tyrone Power), an artistic minor nobleman who is equally skilled with the brush, the sword, words, and women, serves the Machiavellian Prince Cesare Borgia (Orson Welles) as a soldier.

    Valerie Kote-Tawia, Author, Playwright, Director, and Producer

    in Writing

    Valerie Kote-Tawia has been writing captivating stories since she discovered her gift early in her youth. A former Alternative School teacher, she walked away from the security of that job to pursue her true passion: writing. Valerie has managed to merge the expression of her gift with the burden on her heart for youth; creating compelling work that entertains and transforms lives. 

    The success of her first self-produced and directed teen stage play, Would You Be Left, propelled her on the journey of creating the teen book series, Set Apart. Set Apart chronicles the drama-filled lives of five friends as their experiences inspire them to reset the "norm" and persuade others to live as they were created and called...set apart. It is a series about tough decisions, mistakes, second chances and forgiveness. It’s a series that keeps it real (and right). There is no topic off-limits.

    Valerie's vision is to revolutionize the entertainment industry by captivating young audiences with books, magazines, TV and film that promotes virtuous lifestyles of high self-respect, self-worth and moral integrity. This series launches the next step in the fulfilling of her mission to create clean, clever and stirring work that compels youth to live set apart and inspire others to follow. She hopes to use the book series to fund and propel teen centered stage and film projects as well as create a platform to encourage youth to break away from the crowd and LIVE SET APART!

    Spingola and Friends

    in Politics

    Deanna talks about how the Allies prepared for Nuremberg and some of the "evidence" that they used. After World War I, the Executive Committee of the American Jewish Congress (AJC), founded in 1918, composed of Jacob H. Schiff, Louis Marshall, Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, Julian Mack and Abram Elkus, unsuccessfully attempted to convene a World Tribunal to impose war guilt on Germany. They failed after World War I but were successful after World War II because now they could persuade people, with the help of the media and compromised politicians, that Germany had perpetrated a holocaust against the jews.

    Tell Stories to Make an Impact

    in Motivation

    Telling stories is a powerful way to get your message across so that it is compelling and memorable. The best stories grab and hold the audience's attention and build vivid mind pictures. Stories appeal to our emotional side and even overide our logical or analytical side. Stories are a way to reach an audience's hearts through their ears. Stories are the lens through which we view our world or a world in which we want to live. Use stories to engage and inspire your audience. Storytelling is also a great way to teach others. People learn more from stories than they do from facts and statistics.

    Today we will share ways in which to share stories for maximum impact. Learn how a simple tale can become a simple message.

    I'm an Angry Atheist

    in Education

    Quite often, religious people declare that all atheists are "angry atheists."  Is this an accurate statement, and what place does anger have in the battle against superstition?  What are the stories behind those who have been genuinely hurt by religion, and how does anger help and/or harm our ability to persuade others to embrace an evidence-based, dogma-free life?

    This podcast is about the angry atheist.
