    HELP!- I Am Shy but People Think I am ‘Stuck-Up’ and a ‘Snob!’ What should I do?

    in Business

    In our HELP! SITUATION SPOTLIGHT™ series, we shine the light on challenges that community members have shared with me. This episode is, “I Am Shy but People Think I Am ‘Stuck-Up’ and a ‘Snob!’ What should I do?”


    Some people feel very comfortable sharing a lot of personal information about themselves, with large amounts of people very soon after meeting them. That is great! Other people may calculate what what personal information they share, how much they share, how many people they share it with and how long it will take for them to share. That is also great!


    The challenge is that some cultures and settings have expectations that are not met by individuals. What that occurs, there may be a resulting negative outcome to the non-conforming individuals. If someone exceeds the expected quantity and quality of expected personal information, they may accused of “TMI” (too much information) or being “crude” or “having a big mouth.” If someone does not meet the minimum expected quantity and quality of expected personal information, they may be accused of being “stuck-up”, a “snob” or “thinking they are better than other people.” For shy individuals it is more often the latter situation that takes place.


    The shy person is warm, friendly and engaging! They just calculate how much personal information to share, when to share and whom to share it with differently than others. They are more conservative with their feelings and expressing private information and beliefs (full disclosure, I am very shy).


    My suggested tips are: 1) Active listening (eye contact, body language turned toward the speaker, supportive vocalizations, etc.), 2) Ask multiple follow-up questions of the speaker and 3) In some instances it may be helpful to explicitly state to people, “I am shy.”

    Brian Smith: How Devotion, Spirituality & Tenacity Created The UGG Brand

    in Spirituality

    This week we are interviewing the fun, entertaining and extraordinary Brian Smith. Brian was born in Australia, where he developed his love of surfing. A chartered accountant, he studied at the UCLA Graduate School of Management, and with $500 of start-up money, he founded UGG Imports to bring sheepskin footwear to America. After seventeen years, as sales reached $15 million, he sold the business to Deckers Outdoor Corporation. The UGG brand has since exceeded $1 billion of international sales several times over. 


    A passionate innovator and entrepreneur, Brian is also deeply spiritual, purpose driven, values oriented, and totally committed to God. He is one of the most sought after business leaders in the country today. As a media guest and inspiring speaker, he is committed to teaching his breakthrough business strategies to entrepreneurs and translating personal vision and spirituality into company culture. 


    From the shores of Malibu to Mount Kilimanjaro, Brian Smith tells his story of founding the world-renowned UGG Australia brand and reveals the secret to its mega-success. This book is written for anyone who wants to learn how-to succeed in business but also for those seeking the deeper truths they don't teach you about in business school.


    On Brian’s journey he stumbled and fell, but he put his heart and soul into every sole and sale. He overcame all odds and found ultimate success. He will enlighten us with his decades of experience and wis­dom about the sale of a lifetime, and the making of a legend.


    Brian's experience with UGG can certainly provide practical advice and tips to help kick-start an entrepreneurial revolution. But even if you are not an entrepreneur, it will inspire you to work hard, persevere, believe in yourself, watch the signs along the way, learn the lessons, and never give up!

    Ep 20: Shamanic Journeying with guest Langston Kahn

    in Spirituality

    Langston Kahn is a brown queer spirit­worker specializing in emotional healing. He stands firmly at the crossroads, his practice informed by Inner Relationship Focusing, African American Folk Magic and British Traditional Witchcraft with a foundation in the contemporary shamanic cosmology of the Last Mask Community and the guidance of his helping spirits and ancestors.


    He joyfully endeavors to bring spirituality out of the dark dusty recesses of esotericism and into our daily existence, where it can aid us in re­aligning with the ecstatic energy of our soul’s purpose and opening our hearts to create real lasting change in ourselves and in the world. He can be contacted at his website: http://shamanbomb.com/.


    Shamanic journeying is a question driven practice that occurs within the dreamlike space where your cosmology, own symbolic language and spirit world intersect. Shamanic journeying can be a powerful form of divination that allows you to reach beyond your assumptions and what you already know in a way that some other forms of divination are not able to. How does one use shamanic journeying as an effective form of divination? What distinguishes shamanic journeying from other forms of divination? How do you craft questions that provide actionable information? How do you discern truth when your only tools are your body and a drum? How can you tell if you're reading has been hijacked by intrusive spirits or personal bias and what are some techniques for maintaining good signal clarity?

    Black Thoughts and Theory: The Radio Show - Walter Scott & More Police Brutality

    in Culture

    I'M DONE LISTENING TO FAKE CHRISTIANS AND BLEEDING-HEART LIBERALS ... WE NEED TO ADDRESS THE MURDER OF OUR BROTHERS!

    We lost another Melanated brother a few days back. A man that served his country and was in the struggle. Laid low during a common traffic stop. Just think about that. An unarmed man, was shot at least 4 times in the back and 1 in the ear for running away from the police. No warning shot. No waiting for backup. Just a barrage of bullets.

    Join Asha Zuri, Alex Primo and our panel of concerned brothers and sisters Thursday at 9 pm EST as we dissect this tragic event and explain why we should not be surprised. We will explore police brutality and vigilante style crimes that have plagued the Black man since we became captives of this vile system of oppression and subjugation.

    It's time to discuss awareness, preparedness, and solutions my friends. We can no longer sit back and expect the passage of time to cure our ailments. Because as we see that's not happening. We need to be proactive if we are going to put an end to this prelude to a mass culling(on American soil).

    We welcome your calls and your comments. So don't be shy, call-in and share your opinions.

    You can reach us at (917)889-2830(Thursday between 9-11 pm EST ONLY)

    OR 

    You may log on and listen.

    And as always, keep it on point and keep it clean. #One
