Dorothy Leeds was my guest on today's show. She's really a interesting woman who gave you some great tips on how to avoid communication mistakes that women of make - a lot of those "good girl" responses to questions, like rushing to answer a question without thinking through the answer (deliberate and purposeful), answering your own questions (giving the other person an open door to withhold information and avoid telling a lie), and not being persistent in questions - easily being put off about asking more questions).
Dorothy has a special gift for you: Visit the "Books and More" section on her website for books, audio CDs, and more. Mention “Happy Hour with Annmarie Kelly” to receive a special 20% discount on all audio sets.
Also, here's the trailer for Good Lessons from Bad Women. Dorothy tours the United States with "Good Lessons" throughout the year.
I talked about seeing the movie, Heave Is For Real last weekend. I loved it - and I don't care if it's real or not. If it's real, it's hope-inspiring. If it isn't real, it's a heartwarming story - along the lines of Pay It Forward and similar movies. You can make up your own mind. Here are a couple articles and video clips.
I also mentioned Jane Pauley's latest book. I just finished Your Life Calling: Reimagining the Rest of Your Life and I think it's pretty good. At the very least, if you're ready for a reinvention, it will give you some ideas of things other people have done.
