    Navigating CONFLICTS in Communication- Episode 93

    Navigating CONFLICTS in Communication- Episode 93

    One of my favorite quotes is, "We have two ears and one mouth for a reason, to listen twice as much as we speak." This quote hints at a powerful truth. Communication is a give and take, a reciprocation, an openness to learn and think and process another's ideas. But sadly, that respectful spirit is missing from many people's lives, and not enough people make effective communication a priority. Join Richard Blank and I as we discuss this important success principle.
    1. What does communication mean to you? What makes it effective?
    2. Conversely what causes conflicts or hinders communication? What made you focus on communication in your career?
    3. How do you deal with conflicts in communication? How do you keep your cool in the midst of conflict?
    5. Are role models, accountability partners or mentors a part of your pursuit of improving communication?
    6. Why a call center?
    7. services
    8. Background

    Guidance- Follow Your First Mind- Chapter 7

    Guidance- Follow Your First Mind- Chapter 7

    One reviewer called this book , "An interesting read that is not merely about dating and relationships, but about many facets of life. Zen's talents and creativity are apparent in her mix of poetry and prose as well as her combination of storytelling and self-help."
    Audio Chapter 7 of Plenty of Guppies.
    Chapter 1 audio is in the exclusive content. Click the link for the whole ebook or paperback. Chapters 2-6 audios are past episodes. Blurb below. 5***** on Goodreads 4.2 **** on Amazon
    Day 172 on the best seller's list; currently #49 in Kindle- Native American Poetry
    Zen Ase, a newly divorced 43 year old Southern woman wanted a fresh start. She'd heard there were plenty of fish to choose from in the modern dating pond. What she discovered were plenty of guppies. Exactly 101 of them!
     
    The result? A provocative, transparent, raw and delightfully uncensored account of her experiences with the 101 men she encountered on her journey to find "the one". In Plenty of Guppies, Zen spills all the tea on dating psychology, relationships, and self-discovery, while giving readers a rare glimpse into the life of an award-winning artist and best-selling author. The book is an enlightening narrative that explores gender roles and identity outside of societal expectations.
     
    Zen has written a refreshingly mature modern day epic of online dating, layering her personal story with erotic poetic verses and passionate prose that frame her journey toward rebuilding a life as a single woman and adjusting to both an empty nest and boomeranging children.
     
    Zen Ase’s story is alternately poignant, hysterical, uplifting, shocking, and (at its heart), a real life example of the old adage "truth is stranger (and can be harder to believe) than fiction".
     
    Plenty of Guppies is the book every adult who has loved, lost and lived to try again didn't know they needed and will effortlessly respond and relate to.
     The full book can be found on Amazon at the link below.

    Blue Water, Green Tree- spoken word by Zen Ase

    Blue Water, Green Tree- spoken word by Zen Ase

    Spoken word poetry with original music by Rodney Smith, the featured guest on episode 70, my fourth most popular episode- Dedication. If you like this poem, it's part of my poetry/prose memoir Plenty of Guppies along with 95 other poems and the story of the last 7 years of my life. The book is free on Kindle unlimited and the link is here. Https://linktr.ee/zenase
    The conversation before and after the poem includes the voices of Fiiire and Niecee Perkins @shesmisunderstood.20 .Those two women are featured on Episode 11 Aligned, Aware and Unstoppable!
    The show notes of that episode are below. Listen, share, review the podcast. Thank you.
    Dedication is a word people throw around, but haven't often defined. It's a compliment we give others. But it's also something that comes with consequences, sacrifices that some don't often recognize and are unprepared for. Join me as Rodney Smith and I discuss this important success principle.
    1. What does dedication mean to you?
    2. Were you always dedicated? If not, how did you develop it?
    3. How do you deal with motivation, laziness, procrastination or do you acknowledge any of these at all?
    5. How does dedication tie to goal setting and success?
    6. Are role models, accountability partners or mentors a part of your dedication?
    7. What has dedication done for you?
    8. Your music

He didn't want to be a starving artist, but he always wanted to play music. He found out the local police department, Prince George's County in Maryland had a 20 year retirement plan. So, he said to himself, "If I can manage to not get killed for 20 years, I can get back to my music. I managed to survive, and I've been happily retired for 14 years. I retired when I was 42. I played in a band with a high school friend for almost 10 years until Covid showed up and put us out of business. Now I work with an artist. My life shows dedication to a dream, and the process to achieve that dream."

    Autonomy- Episode 88

    Autonomy- Episode 88

    Freedom. It's important. It means many things to many people. People of all races, creeds, languages and national origins have bled and died for it. But keeping freedom isn't free. It must be protected by laws, through votes and through protesting the unjust uses of those laws or the heavy handedness of those who are supposed to serve we the people, but serve they the lobbyists or they the factions.
    There is no self empowerment without autonomy. And since that is the entire purpose of this podcast to enhance each individual life so each individual can positively impact his or her circle, it's a great day to release this podcast discussion.
