"It's not survival of the fittest; it's survival of the most adaptable." - Robert Patrick Lewis

Posted by Jordan, 01 Sep 15

When you’re doing whatever it is you do to put food on the table and a roof over your head, do you consider yourself more of a team player or a lone wolf? Either way, if you feel like you’re in crisis mode at work most of the time but you’re too overwhelmed to do anything that would improve the situation, you could do with a new perspective — and a new strategy.

Former guest and US Army Green Beret-turned author, entrepreneur, podcast host, and public speaker Robert Patrick Lewis returns to The Art of Charm to tell us how his unique experiences in active duty translate to the civilian business world. After all, who knows more about teamwork, communication, and planning for — and reacting to — an emergency than a Green Beret?

The Cheat Sheet:

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

  • The worst time to plan for an emergency is after it's already happened.
  • Understand the importance of teamwork, but be prepared to rely on your own strengths and adapt to a situation for those times when teamwork falls through.
  • How much could you write if you never had writer's block?

  • Why is there a disconnect between veterans and the HR departments of companies that want to hire them?
  • How can military and combat experience be used in the business world?
  • And so much more...

Listen to this episode of The Art of Charm in its entirety to learn Robert’s extremely methodical process for writing books — both fiction and non-fiction, how strategy applies to everyday life (not just work), how making your ambitions known on the job can get you flagged (in a good way) for promotion opportunities, why you’re missing out on leads if you’re not using LinkedIn properly, and lots more.

    How come y'all don't have a white women benefiting from a black man section? Don't have a double standard thing going on now it is plenty of good black men on this site and in this country who will make good husbands to black women.I don't like the way yall trying to make it sound like the only way a black woman will be happy is with a white man is b.s.ya'll need to change up the way yall wording things when it comes to talking about black men now.White men don't know but it does take a lot to deal with a black woman and they will soon find that out but, that's not to say that we don't love em who not all black women are like this but who wants a woman who want support what he's doing or always criticizing something or complaining? You see y'all white men are fascinated with the thought of being with a black woman but it takes a lot to keep one and I'm not talking about just financially either, I'm talking about, physically, spiritually and not to mention emotionally damn their going to wish they kept a white woman trust me that's why I'm here Lol because alot of black woman are rediculous when it comes to what they expect a man to do and what they want in relationships.Don't get me wrong they look damn good alot of them but wait until they start shopping and demanding you to do things y'all white men are not expecting to do y'all all of y'all are going to be like all fucking a man Michelle keeps hitting me up for cash and I don't have enough money to do shit else where's my white woman at? Fuck Lol I'm just telling you what's real don't think y'all got it all in the bag because you've got a long way to go trust me before all said and done you're going to want to call it quits with her and you know what that means don't you? I know you know Lol just leave it like this until it's time.It is emotionally draining to deal with a black woman today and alot of you will find out you see right now y'all are fascinated with the idea of having a black woman and should have literally asked some black men on what it takes to date one let alone keep one happy.Now don't be trying to do no Hollywood shit with her once you find out what time it is because it's not even worth the jail time just handle your legal business with her give her half you're shit and keep moving.

      You don't know how ridiculous you sound. Half your paragraph states that there are good black men out there to date black women and the other half is spent running black women down, planting seeds of doubt us. You black men are always trying to make out we are hard work, well guess what you don't work hard enough period to keep us. Make up your mind. You see if you want to be with a white women. Guess what? WE DON'T CARE. Do what you like and let us date who WE LIKE. You know what the shame of it is. Judging by your photo, your mother is BLACK. Does all the above apply to her, the woman who raise your nonsensical ass? White men love us. We love ourselves. It's about time black people started loving each other. However, in your case. As Robin said in Waiting to Exhale. ' A white woman can have your sorry ass'
