I've learned a lot over the years.  I've made mistakes that I didn't think I could recover from.  All of it has humbled me and made me appreciate this journey.

 Life is a journey with problems to solve, choices to make and things to learn.  

I want to share my experiences, wisdom and challenges with you.  

I'm an American griot. I am also internationally known as the Black Man with a Gun (TM).  Thanks for listening, downloading and subscribing to this show.  I'm hoping to entertain, inspire and make you smarter from the things I've done and still trying to do. 

I'm into fishing, motorcycles, cigars, family, music, guitars, guns and typical "man stuff."  If you are, come join me here. 

It's not all old stuff either.  I'm here to learn and grow.

Your Key To Success: Conversation

Why is Communication so hard? Asked of a single woman I know. The topic prompted me to share this with you so you can do better.

Two Game Changing Points:

1. An open-ended question is a question that cannot be answered with a "yes" or "no" response, or with a static response.

2. Active listening.

There are three levels of safe topics to talk about.

More tips:

* Be attentive and give eye contact.

* Make active and engaged expressions.

* Repeat back what you’ve heard, and follow up with questions.

* If you notice something you want to say, don’t say it. Challenge it and go back to listening.

* For bonus points, wait an hour to bring up that thing you didn’t say earlier.

Communicate for intimacy.

Good Luck. New Facebook page @kbgamechangers
