This podcast answers some of life's most challenging and awkward communication questions. We cover everything from diffusing a jerk to asking for a raise. We'll talk about how to start a conversation at a networking event, and what to do if your nose starts running in the middle of a presentation. You'll learn how to handle these situations with ease. These episodes are based on actual questions from my clients every day and come with practical tips you can start using immediately. I've kept these episodes short, so you get just what you need, when you need it, without having to listen through long, drawn-out interviews. Listen, whether you're talking at work, home, or just hanging out with your friends, there isn't an aspect of your life that isn't impacted by your communication, so why not be the absolute best you can be?

Your words shape your success, the ones you say aloud and those you don't. How do I know?

Confirmation bias. Defined as "the tendency to process information by looking for, or
interpreting, information that is consistent with one's existing beliefs." Britannica.

In my words, what we think about, we bring about.
My friend, how many times have you heard someone say...
"This is never going to work." and then it doesn't?
"Who's going to care anyway?" and no one does.
"Why bother?" and no one bothers.

Their words confirm their beliefs, their beliefs shape their behaviors, and the results are what
they predicted.

Now, think about someone you know who says...
"I am doing this!" and they do.
"I care." and others do too.
"I am investing in this." and they do.

Their words confirm their beliefs, their beliefs shape their behaviors, and the results are what
they predicted. Your words shape your success, and success starts in your mind.

Whatever you do today, make sure what you're saying to yourself matches what you're working
for. Make sure the words you say to yourself empower, inspire and motivate you.
What you think about you bring about.
Make sure you bring out your best.
