    How to Captivate Your Audience

    in Legal

    Lackluster.  That's one of the common things that we hear non-lawyers say about lawyer presentations.  Learn how to stand out from the crowd and really CAPTIVATE your audience so that you can:
    be seen as an expert or leader
    attract more business
    command more respect
    On the premier episode of Esquire Coaching Radio, we will hear from Kimberly Fernandez, a passionate executive coach & founder of Kcaptivates, about the art of captivation. 
    Captivation is about being spell bound. It’s about showing vulnerability and your strength because that’s real. It’s taking your audience from 0 to 100 in a heartbeat. It’s about tapping into the full range of who you are instead of having a mono style. It’s a style that’s bewitching, alluring, and fascinating
    Kimberly coaches them find their sazon, their sofrito, their spice, their flavor within and transform this into a powerful ingredient in their lives.

    Cyrille Aimee Concert on SyndicatedNews for All BTR Hosts!

    in Music

    Cyrille Aimée was born in Fontainebleau, France. Her father is French and her mother is from the Dominican Republic. She's got all the basic makings of a good "sofrito" for cooking (she's tasty and spicey) and she scats better than Ella Fitzgerald.
    Every year in June, her village Samois-sur-Seine, welcomes gypsies who come from all over Europe to set up caravans in nearby meadows for the Django Reinhardt Festival, in honor of the legendary guitarist who also once lived in Samois-sur-Seine. As a child, Cyrille fell in love with gypsy music and way of life.  She spent evenings at their camps, learned their language and began to sing by the fire with Django's descendants.
    While Cyrille became adept at guitar, it was her voice that most struck her professor, who invited her to sing at the Django Festival in 2000—a decisive experience as Cyrille then decided to become a singer.  Intent to continue studying music by day and performing at night, Cyrille elected to not join her family when they moved to Singapore, and decided instead to attend the American School of Modern Music in Paris. This concert had no rhyme or reason. I threw it together because this young musician's voice is so delightful and unusual that I wanted others to enjoy it as well.

    Favoite foods

    in Food

    Hello beautiful people, this is cgalive with today’s special: Favorite foods
    Well I must say that I had a hard time with this topic since I have a variety of different dishes that I truly enjoy, but in having to pick only one; I decided to go with a native cuisine dish from Puerto Rico. You may be curious to know why I would pick a Puerto Rican cuisine, when there are so many other foods to choose from.  The truth is I am a Puerto Rican American both my parents are Puerto Rican and so I hold my culture and our foods close to my Heart. The Puerto Rican culture has a diversified menu of dishes and I do take pleasure in all of its different assortments, but there is one in particular that my mom makes that is so, so, good. That cuisine is arroz con pollo; translated is (Puerto Rican style chicken and rice). During family gatherings or special festive times my mom usually cooks and one of our favorites is her Puerto Rican style chicken and rice. She definitely has a way of putting lots T.L.C into her food. When she goes into that kitchen to begin rattling the pots, she makes sure she has all of those special ingredients and spices that make the dish taste so right. She begins seasoning the chicken with the right amount of Spanish spices, many of which are freshly made. Some of you may have heard of sofrito, it is one of those special ingredients that used in many Spanish dishes. She places the chicken in a big pot with olive oil and begins to sawtad it making sure the chicken is soaking up the flavors of the seasonings.She then adds her rice, olives and capers cooking that for about five ten minutes before adding the tomato sauce, beer and stock stirs it up, covers the pot, turns down the heat and simmers until it is fully cooked Along with a slice of avocado and you are ready for the delightful experience of savoring Mamas Puerto Rican Spanish chicken and rice. Bon probecho

  • Life's Issues with Lauren Jawno

    in Self Help

    Life's Issues with Lauren Jawno with special guest Karlton Meadows & Mary A. Perez:


    Karlton Meadows - Once a sickly, scrawny, last picked, bench-riding kid with little to no athleticism, Karlton dreamed of being a champion athlete & fitness model. Against seemingly unbeatable odds he not only became a sponsored athlete, an international Fitness Authority, published author and fitness model; he packaged his experience and specialized education into a method called Body Engineered which has helped him lead his clients from frustration to fruition regarding their health, fitness, wellness and quality of life goals. He uses the techniques himself as he prepares to Win the Gold at the 2016 Summer Olympic in Rio as the Best 800 meter runner of all time. Sounds impossible? Good, he has made the impossible possible for himself as well as for many of his clients.


    Mary A. Perez - I am a noted writer, author and blogger born in the Bronx to Puerto Rican parents. I grew up running the streets of Miami until my late teens. My award-winning essays have been featured in The Latino Author, La Respuesta Magazine and Sofrito for Your Soul. My debut memoir, Running in Heels: A Memoir of Grit and Grace (Chart House Press, 2015) has received rave reviews and the fans keep multiplying. I now reside in Houston, Texas where I am blessed to be the mother of four grown children, "Mimi" to a couple of gorgeous grandchildren, and happily married (the second time around) to a phenomenal man for twenty-one years.
