Ep. 169 - Why reality TV is the best communications teacher

Sam and Juliette from Siesta Key teach me more about communication than my Bachelor's Degree in the same field. Shep from Southern Charm shows me how using high-level vocabulary is a way to exert dominance in a conversation, but he does so in the douchiest way possible.

Why am I referencing reality TV? Because it taught me SO MUCH about non-verbal and verbal cues, making connections, and resolving conflict - all components of strong communication.

When you know how to communicate effectively, you've scored the golden ticket to life.

Communication skills will help you:

  • Meet strangers while traveling (imagine clinking glasses of sangria after a random cooking class and then grabbing drinks later - I'll tell you the story of this happening to me!)
  • Date confidently (the world is opening up and IRL dates are back - communication is key)
  • Negotiate your salary like a San Fransisco tech bro (aka get paid without questioning your skill set)
  • Resolving a conflict with a family member (I share how blowing up on a sibling via text was not my finest moment)
  • Interviewing someone for your show (a skill that transcends the airwaves - this will get you VERY far in life. I share specific examples)
