THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
Do you communicate with clarity and confidence, when you pick up the telephone? Are you routinely asked to repeat what you are asking? How long does it take for you to write down your thoughts or compose an important message? How confident are you that others are able to understand you when you speak? Many of us are unable to communicate with clarity and confidence even though we have outstanding business and life skills. Whether it’s telling a good story, writing a winning proposal or explaining to your teenager why life requires a series of good decisions, your ability to communicate with confidence and clarity plays an important role in your level of success. The good thing is that both written and verbal communications skills can be developed and improved. The key is learning how you can consistently communicate with confidence.
Join Angela Lauria of The Author Incubator as she interviews Jill Angie, author of the book, Running with Curves.
Writing Running with Curves turned into something pivotal for Jill. She wrote the book that she wished had existed when she started running almost 20 years ago, which was when she did everything through trial and error. She wanted to help others in the same boat as she was to avoid all of the experimentation and just get right to enjoying being a runner regardless of size.
She said that if she had known how life- and career-changing it would be, she would have started earlier. "I thought I just wanted to be someone that had written a book - but along the way, I became much more in tune with where I wanted to take my career," she said.

Join Dr. Angela Lauria of The Author Incubator as the interviews author Julia Roberts on the publishing of her book, Sex, Lies, and Creativity, which is her third book. It's actually an easy-to-read version of her Masters research, stripped of its academic opacity and made to sing, as she put it, For Roberts, it's more important to move the reader than to create an unassailable argument in a labored defensive style of writing. "It just flowed," she said about the writing of the book. "I knew the material and was writing it for the reader."
The best thing to come out of having this book, according to Roberts, was being on Bestseller status ontwo different lists: Creativity & Genius and Women's Studies.
