Fan Mail Friday #142 | Bits of Cod

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 Kevin Rose and Corbin Payne 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:

  • How do you make sure you’re not wasting the opportunity of a good introduction?
  • Why don’t we read positive reviews on the show?
  • Some great listener feedback for the child with ADHD from FMF #140 who blames himself for his mother’s issues.
  • How does someone who’s visually impaired network effectively without being able to read body language?
  • Is your writing style too verbose for most? If so, how can you clarify your message without feeling like you’re “dumbing it down?”
  • What’s one of the meanest things Jordan has done?
  • How Jordan got a peek into the world of being a woman online.
  • Out of curiosity, if you were going to rename The Art of Charm podcast, what would you call it? Drop Jordan a line at [email protected] if you have ideas!
  • Documentary of the Week: Hunting the KGB Killers
  • Quick shoutouts to Melanie Pipkens out of Lansing, Michigan, and Susie and Jojo!
  • 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 Instagram at @jordanharbinger, 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.
