Episode Description

In today’s world, there are so many sources for news-read a newspaper, watch t.v., or scroll through online sites. No matter how you receive your news, I’m sure you’ll agree that it can often be depressing or demoralizing. Studies have shown that much of today’s news reporting causes a general malaise and sense of helplessness. It doesn’t have to be this way! You can start getting your news from Girl Talk HQ, a daily news site whose mission is to inspire and to empower. It is different from other news sources because it ONLY focuses on positive news. This week, we are lucky to have Girl Talk HQ founder and Editor-in-Chief, Asha Dahya. Asha truly knows about empowerment because she has created a site that empowers women. Whether you dream of starting your own business inspiring others as Asha has done, or whether you are just tired of depressing news and want to be empowered and inspired on a daily basis, join me as we go beyond the boardroom and the bedroom and step into Girl Talk HQ.

From the Boardroom to the Bedroom: The Protocol Praxis

Archives Available on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel

People in leadership positions deny that emotions play any role in their decision making. A Caveat is that leading neuroscientists concur that 95 percent of all thoughts, emotions and learning occurs before an individual is even aware. From the Boardroom to the Bedroom masters an arsenal of neuro-behavioral skills on how to appeal to others’ subconscious motivations. Tired of mediocrity? Break free! Arm yourself with influence, power, and persuasion, faster and successfully in all facets of your life. The data speaks for itself. So don’t be delusional. If you want to get ahead of the competition regardless if it’s in the office, boardroom, or bedroom, discover that the natural attraction to a colleague or mate is propelled by unconscious emotions that happens at a deeper unconscious level. From the Boardroom to the Bedroom unleashes your synergistic energy to influence others with your ultimate power and persuasion for business success and personal finesse.
