      I got to tell you, I admire Stephanie's spunk.  I love her ability to stand for what she believes in and works hard to market her shows here on the JKN.  She does not take any gruff or funky stuff.  And she will admit when she is wrong, which is rare for a lot of people, male or female.  She is a motivated and determined woman, who is out to get the job done, and get the job done she does.  You will find no bigger fan for the LAKERS than THE LAKER GURL.  I pull for the CLIPPERS when it comes to L.A., but Stephanie won't have it, she is LAKERS all the way, so get ready! 347-205-9366 - Call her up. #WWLG4L #JKN

    Joy Keys chats with Actress Essence Atkins

    in Current Events

    In My Other Mother, Candace “Candy” Meyers (Essence Atkins) is a successful anchor on a top-rated national magazine show.  Fiercely independent and committed to her job, Candy doesn’t make many friends with her demanding, gruff nature.  In fact, her only true friend might be her long-time manager Lewis (Kendrick Cross).  Candy discovers that an anonymous fan she’s had for years has passed way – and he was her biological father Freddy Nelson!  Content with the love and support of her adoptive family, Candy has never been curious about her biological parents.  That all changes when she travels back for her father’s funeral, meets the Nelson family – including biological uncle Abner (GregAlan Williams), Freddy’s wife Delores (Angie Stone) and her two step-brothers – and discovers that her reclusive, angry and stubborn birth mother, Mary Jo (Lynn Whitfield) is going to be a challenge.  The journey these two surprisingly similar women take getting to know each other will break down walls and open them up to a life they never knew was possible.

    Episode 27: Interview with Author Mike McNeff

    in Writing

    Here's what awesome about Mike McNeff -- not only is he a retired cop and lawyer, he's totally open and fun to talk to. Put aside any worries about him being too gruff or unreachable. Instead, he's open, funny, and straightforward. His latest book Hard Justice: The Legend of Jasper Lee is an action-packed western, but his Robin Marlette series -- loosely based on some of his own experience while in law enforcement -- is also not to be missed. McNeff stopped by the show to share with us his own take on this wild writing world.

    Compassionate HR Interviews The Recruiting Animal!

    in Business

    The Recruiting Animal had the first blogtalkradioshow in his industry. As an early adopter of this medium, and of Twitter, he learned how to captivate his audience in a way that few others have rivaled.  How does he does he do this week after week, year after year?  How does he consistently engage the ears of such a daunting audience?  You'll have to tune in to find out.  This episode will be like "The True Hollywood Story" of the man behind the mask, or the puppet avatar.  On Twitter, and on his show, he never reveals his real name, or image.
    Who is The Recruiting Animal in real life? That's a story that only he can tell.  Let me tell you this, he's one of the smartest, funniest, crankiest people I know. 
    He happens to not just be a recruiter himself, he's also knows a great deal about LinkedIn, Twitter, and how to leverage online networks to source top notch talent for organizations in Canada, and The US.
    Known, and even loved for "screaming" at his guests, and callers, he keeps people coming back in droves.  He's like the Howard Stern of the recruiting industry.
    So, why would I have such a tough guy on Compassionate HR? Because, behind the gruff exterior is perhaps one of the most helpful people I know.
    Many people don't realize just how much @Animal does behind the scenes to help people improve their online profiles (both his colleagues, and job seekers alike).
    That's why I like The Recruiting Animal, and it's why I want to share his story with you.
    Even though this is an interview format, the phone lines will be open, and we will gladly welcome your questions, and comments!
    Let's "Occupy" The Recruiting Animal Show. His show can be heard every Wednesday at Noon Eastern Time.  
    This promises to be perhaps the most unusual episodes of Compassionate HR ever!
