Fan Mail Friday #139 | Weed on the Tweed

Time for Fan Mail Friday, where we’ll be answering your questions and dropping some knowledge and feedback to help you kick the weekend off right.

If you’re new to The Art of Charm Podcast, this isn’t a great place to start. Most of our content is more in-depth and longer format. Listen to recent guests Bob Sutton and Aubrey Marcus for a better idea of our regular programming.

Also make sure to check out our Best Of picks or the Fundamentals Toolbox episodes. There, we’ve got the fundamentals of body language and nonverbal communication, attraction, negotiation, networking, and everything else we teach here at The Art of Charm.

Let’s cut to it! In this episode:

  • So you’re having a challenge with a new relationship — your soon-to-be mother-in-law. How can you make it right before the big day?
  • How do you deal with a person who is constantly asking for favors but has yet to provide any real value in return?
  • If you’re doing everything you’re meant to be doing and your life has improved since giving up alcohol, is there a problem with the vice you’ve chosen to replace it?
  • Some listener advice for the Lost Corpsman from FMF #135 — specifically for his struggles with PTSD, depression, and self-treatment with alcohol.
  • How much eye contact is too much eye contact?
  • Quick shoutout to Jeremy, The Self-Improvement Forester!
  • Have any questions, comments, or stories you’d like to share with us? Drop us a line at [email protected]!
  • Connect with Jordan on Twitter at @TheArtofCharm, and check out Jason’s (@jpdefother show: Grumpy Old Geeks.

Jordan Harbinger - author of 952 posts on The Art of Charm

Jordan Harbinger has spent several years abroad in Europe and the developing world, including South America, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East, and speaks several languages. He has also worked for various governments and NGOs overseas, traveled through war zones, and been kidnapped -- twice. He’ll tell you the only reason he’s still alive and kicking is because of his ability to talk his way into (and out of) just about any type of situation. Here at The Art of Charm, Jordan shares that experience, and the system borne as a result, with students and clients.
