Do You Hate the Sound of Your Voice? (Airs on Work with Marty Nemko, 9/30/12)

Ever hear a recording of your voice? If you're like many people, you don't love the way you sound. 

Sometimes, that's simply because you're not used to hearing your voice externally but sometimes it reflects deserved unhappiness with your tone, your articulateness, etc.

On Sep 30, 2012, my  guest on Work with Marty Nemko will help us out. She is Dr. Carol Fleming, a speech consultant and author of the books, The Sound of Your Voice and It's the Way You Say It: Becoming Articulate, Well-Spoken and Clear.

How to Become More Reslient. (Work with Marty Nemko, 7/15/12)

On July 15 at 11 am my guest was Rick Newman, author of Rebounders: How winners pivot from setbacks to success.  We had a realistic, not pop-psych discussion of how regular people (not just those who got on Oprah) can rebound from failures.

At 11;40, I invited listeners to call in for a Three-Minute Workover, in which I try to help them take at least a baby step forward in solving their work/career problem.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 am to noon on KALW 9`.7FM, a National Public Radio affiliate in San Francisco.
