In this interview your host, Tony D'Angelo, interviews Marc Allen the author & editor of As You Think, an updated and revised edition of the classic personal empowerment book As A Man Thinketh. In this episode Tony & Marc discuss the book and how it's classic wisdom can be used and embraced by today's college students & Higher Education Professionals.
In 1904, a relatively unknown Englishman named James Allen wrote a little book called As a Man Thinketh. The book has become one of the world’s greatest self-help books — “self-empowerment” is a better term — for it not only reveals to us that the keys to success are within our own minds, it shows us how to use these keys to unlock the greatest fulfillment we can imagine.
In this revised edition, author and publisher Marc Allen updates this classic, changing language that has become dated or obsolete, and honing the clarity of the message. He makes As You Think gender inclusive, showing how these principles are truly universal and apply to everyone, regardless of sex, age, race, beliefs, social class, or education.
As You Think is a simple yet powerful reminder that “all we achieve and all that we fail to achieve is the direct result of our own thoughts.” We are the masters of our destinies.
(Producer Note: This IS episode 114 and not episode 112 as Tony mistakenly states at the beginning of the show. Don't worry we made him eat ramen noodles for an entire week.)
Would you like to gain inside information on the pulse of American Higher Education when it comes to what are the biggest & hottest trends for entertainment & activities on campus today? If so then check out this episode in which your host, Tony D'Angelo, interviews Scott Talarico, the founder of Neon Entertainment.
President and founder of Neon Entertainment for twenty years, Scott Talarico has been operating the agency with continued success. A native of Utica, New York, Scott graduated from Alfred University and chose to base Neon in buffalo for its active entertainment scene.
Scott oversees as an agent to the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. Scott may be eternally busy with Neon's roster of 40 musicians and comedians, but he never forgets why it's so important to stay dedicated: he's helping artists create their own niche in the college entertainment market.
Scott brings a variety of skill and a high level of understanding of the business to his agency. A musician in his own right (he plays the drums), he's had experience in everything from radio sales to programming and concert production. At Alfred he served as President of his college entertainment board, a valuable commodity when considering Neon's main focus on colleges, developing relationships with student activity boards, and bringing students the type of entertainment they want onto their campus at an affordable cost.
The most rewarding part of working in this field for Scott is being a first-hand witness to intense artist growth. Neon gives new artists the chance to develop and widen their fan-base. "It is because of what Neon does that gives the artists the chance to play large-scale shows," Scott says. "These opportunities give them great experience so they can develop their own style and image."
Scott is also the manager to that adorable little guidette you might know as Snooki! All that press, photos, appearances, and world-wide recognition can be traced back to Scott and Neon Entertainment!
