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 Dr. Angela Lauria as she interviews Janeen Latini on the publishing of Love to Lead. Lead to Love.: The Overworked Leader's Guide to Career Growth & Personal Happiness.
Meditation was pivotal for Janeen in writing this book. It allowed her to focus on what she really wanted the book to be and what symbols to use to be able to deliver her message across to her readers. She only wrote when she felt it was right which allowed her to dive wholeheartedly into the role of author. This same dedication is what she applies to her role as a management coach.
Janeen's professional specialization working with leaders and managers in the corporate setting during times of change is what gives the book authenticity, having contents that came right out of her heart.

Join Dr. Angela Lauria as she interviews Jenn McRobbie on the publishing of her book, Why is She Acting So Weird? A Guide to Cultivating Closeness When a Friend is in Crisis.
Jenn was inspired to write her book on friendship when she thought about starting a memoir. To begin, she created a timeline of stories of her life and realized that the stories dealt more about her friendships rather than herself. When she realized that her book would be about friends, her focus became clear and she was able to write it in only three months.

THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
Western music is not to be confused with Country music. Western music is a form of American folk music composed by and about the people who settled and worked throughout the Western United States and Western Canada. The Mexican folk music of the American Southwest also influenced the development of this genre. With the Traditional Western being a genre of various arts, such as comics, fiction, film, games, radio, television and music, getting "westerns" published and in the hands of fans can also be confusing and a challenge to understand. Tonight we learn about today's contemporary western music and about how today's publishing experts get the western genre to market.
