Mean Lady Talking Podcast Episode 3 Show Notes

First of all –
My apologies for the quality of the audio. My recording software actually switched from my professional microphone to the laptop microphone….see the difference? My apologies. It was in distribution before I realized what happened. It almost happened again after this but now I check it. LEARNING!

Second of all, sorry for some of the moving around noise on the podcast. I normally don’t record videos or audio during the day because of landscapers and neighbors with dogs (if you’ve seen some of my videos, you’ve heard some of this)…I had appointments all night so I did the podcast during the day and when I would hear those dopey landscapers rev up or a barking dog, I would try to move away from the noise as best I could…so sorry for the moving around noises a few places on the podcast!

Mean Lady Talking Podcast Episode 3: 

Crisis as Opportunity or the Facebook Group Gets Really, Really Mean

When written in Chinese the word crisis is composed of two characters. One represents danger, and the other represents opportunity. ~ John F. Kennedy

Crisis is opportunity when played correctly. When faced with a crisis, recognize the opportunity to change your life and become everything you’ve always wanted to be. ~ Susan J. Elliott
