Going Behind the Scenes on Why Men Really Cheat


For decades, we have heard many reasons for why men cheat.  In most cases, it has been the woman’s point of view about why men cheat.  Unfortunately, society has accepted those points of view as the truth.  Now the media promotes the woman’s perspective.  What’s worse is that

Do Women Understand Men?


Friends & Family: Thank you for your support.  The radio show, Straight Talk with Ted Santos and Blair Nash, had a very successful debut.  From calls and private messages I received after the show, there were quite a few listeners who gave very positive feedback. 

One of the major points that came from the show is

Straight Talk


Straight Talk is a live call-in radio show that airs every Sunday from 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm on www.blogtalkradio.com.  Click the icon that looks like the photo.  

To join the conversation, call: 323 642-1387.  

‘Straight Talk’ is the place where men discuss life and relationships from a man’s point of view. 

Don’t miss it, even if you’re a woman.

For decades, women have had many platforms to discuss important issues concerning love, money, education, career, health, relationships, marriage and divorce.  During this time, there have been absolutely no platforms for men.  Conversations have been one sided and dictated by what women want.  As a result, men have been silenced.  This has had consequences.   

More than ever men are experiencing frustrations with women.  The rules of yesterday have quickly changed, and men are unsure how to approach or establish happiness in love relationships with women.  Unfortunately, there is no platform for men to come together to discuss these challenges.  

Ted Santos and Blair Nash have created a platform to fill that void in society. 

It’s rare for men to have a platform that allows them to discuss life challenges – love, work, and family.  Instead, as it’s a learned behavior, most men keep many of their concerns bottled inside. 

By creating a live call-in radio show through the Internet, ‘Straight Talk’ is a place where men can openly speak about their personal concerns and receive feedback from two professionals – Ted and Blair.  Ted Santos is an executive coach and advisor to CEOs of middle market companies.  He also has expertise transforming corporate culture (behavior).

Blair is a certified life coach and author of three relationship books.  He counsels husbands and wives, dating couples, and individuals.  

While the show is designed for men, it’s an opportunity for women to hear what men really think.  Though the focus is towards men, women are strongly encouraged to call in.   

‘Straight Talk’ will be broadcast every Sunday from 7:00pm-8:00pm.  Because it’s a live show, callers will have the opportunity, if appropriate, to be coached or receive feedback to find real time solutions to meeting women, dating, relationship challenges or problems in the workplace. 

Some of the topics the program will cover are the following:

  1. Staying out of the friend zone
  2. What do you want from a woman?
  3. Why men cheat/Why women cheat
  4. The family man
  5. How do you choose the right woman?
  6. Negotiating with your woman
  7. Dealing with the career woman
  8. Getting what you want from your woman
  9. Career women vs. stay at home mom
  10. The stay at home dad
  11. Is marriage beneficial to men?
  12. Are you educated?
  13. What’s your next career move?
  14. Is entrepreneurship in your DNA?
  15. What are your transferable skills for a better career?
  16. Corporate life vs. trade or skilled
  17. Child support
  18. Are there good women out there?
  19. Finding love overseas
  20. Love in the workplace

We look forward to your participation.  Let's break the silence.

Guess Who’s Making a Major Change?


Friends & Family: Many of you are aware that I am aboutto make a major change in my life.  I have created a platform that takes me from working with executives to working with anyone who wants success.  My experience advising executives helped me to become more insightful into the challenges that cause people to achieve their most important desires as well as the ones that stop them.  As an advisor, I have seen some of the smartest and most successful people sabotage great plans.  That experience showed me that everyone has

I’m Moving on Up!


Friends & Family: If you’ve noticed, for the past several weeks, I have not written articles.  There is a reason for that.  I am about to make a monumental move in my life.  Up to now, I have been known for writing leadership articles and running businesses as a senior executive.  As many of you know, I expanded that part of my career by advising CEOs and other executives on creating disruptive strategies to create quantum growth.  In that capacity, I also had a focus on transforming corporate culture.  

I am preparing to transfer those skills and competencies to a very different part of life.  I will keep you posted on this new platform and when it will launch.  Some of you will be very surprised.  Others may say: what took you so long?  

I will appreciate your support and look forward to sharing something valuable.

Talk to you soon.

Is It True That Racism Died?


This may be the most controversial article you’ve ever read.  At the same time, controversial conversations can alter your perspective of reality.  Altered perspectives can usher in new actions. 

I wish this were an easy conversation.  It’s not.  It really is analogous to telling

Who Is Responsible for Your Choices?


While the answer may seem obvious, it’s not for many.  You get one life and it’s yours.  Whether it’s your major in college, career, spouse or prison, you have encountered everything in your life because of your choices.  While it’s true your environment shaped your thoughts and belief systems, it is

Will Courage Make You a Great Leader?


If you lack courage, does it mean you will never be a great leader?  In the US, it appears that common sense says courage is a profound part of being a great leader.  As a result, aspiring leaders go about their day to demonstrate their courage to the world.  However, when you look at many of the most effective leaders, perhaps it is

Should Leaders Send Themselves to the Timeout Room?


The notion of time out is generally seen as punishment for children who misbehave.  In the context of this article, it has a much more profound meaning.  In sports, teams call time out when they are running out of time, overwhelmed or need to thoroughly think through the next play.  In life, regardless of how well you manage time, it eventually runs out.  As a result, some people are

How Do Leaders Handle Breakdowns?


In your personal or professional life, breakdowns occur.  When I say breakdowns, it includes problems, disruptions, challenges, chaos, misfortune, disaster, etc.  When it comes to business, in many cases, the larger the goal the larger the breakdown.  If you’re a leader, the way you handle those problems can

What Happens When Leadership Does Not Create a Corporate Culture?


I have worked as an executive and advisor to CEOs in variousindustries.  In either capacity, I have noticed a pattern.  One pattern is that high performing companies have a culture of high accountability.  Low performing organizations tend to have toxic cultures and confusion.  Nevertheless, effective leaders can always

What Is Leadership?


Perhaps the shortest and easiest answer to “what is leadership?” is: there is no leadership.  At least there is no such thing as the archetypal leader who, as the dictionary says, “is the action of leading a group of people or an organization”.  Or it is said to be “a state or position of being the leader”.  What’s odd about the definitions is they are both

What Does Your Intimate Life Have to Do with Your Professional Life?


On the surface, it would seem your professional and intimate lives are worlds apart.  However, when you peel back the layers, you find patterns that are mirrored in both.  For example, whatever upsets you in your personal life will upset you in the workplace, even if you are taught to suppress it at work.  Eventually those upsets will

Here’s Why Leadership Books Will Never Make You a Great Leader


If you want to read about leadership, go into any bookstore.  Or search the Internet.  You’ll find millions of entries online and thousands of copies in bookstores.  And every book has the answer. They tell you to be a situational leader, primal leader, emotionally intelligent leader, servant leader and the list goes on.  Yet, many, many people still struggle with being an effective leader.  And even more people are

Here’s Why Your Words Have No Power


When you learn your first language, it is to ensure you are able to communicate with others.  Before you learn a language, you cry to be fed or to have your diaper changed.  Language allows you to speak instead of cry.  Once language is acquired, most people use it to communicate what they want or don’t want.  Therefore, it is a tool.  However, it is one of the most

Are Leaders Really Needed in Organizations?


Leadership.  Is it really essential to have leaders in an organization?  For the past few decades, there have been companies that have eliminated titles.  There are no CEOs, presidents or managers.  In some cases, there are no individual owners.  The employees own the company.  In today’s business model, some call it a

Great Leaders Don’t Tell You What to Do


In many cases, people become managers because they solve problems better than others.  And problems solvers can be rather proud about telling others about how to implement solutions they have discovered.  While being a problem solver may be a normal path to management, it is a trap.  For those managers who move to senior management, being the best problem solver can become

Here’s Why You Are Inadvertently a Huge Trump Supporter


Perhaps there has never been such disdain for a president of the US as there has been for President Trump.  While the majority of the US population voted for his opponent, Hilary Clinton, the electorate votes made Trump the winner.  Therefore, more than half of the US citizens opposed President Trump from the beginning.  Yet, in their desire to invalidate him, they will ensure he

Here’s Why Knowledge Transfer from One Generation to the Next Is Rarely Effective

Knowledge transfer is critical for the survival of mankind.  However, as each generation eliminates threats, the knowledge that is transferred has to account for that.  In previous articles, I wrote about the unintentional knowledge transfer that sabotages the best efforts of any person or society.  That happens because people still have the mindset that was necessary when the threat existed.  In this article, I will outline one of the most

Can You Unlearn the Addictive Behaviors You Learned?


Everyone with a healthy brain is influenced by their environment.  Everything in your environment that you see, hear and touch is recorded in your brain.  Those recordings become part of your memory and shape what you think, say and do.  Therefore, it’s imperative to expose your brain to that which makes you smarter and more effective.  Except, in the human paradigm, you unknowingly

Interview with Ted Santos: Corporate consultant motivational speaker


Ted Santos: Corporate consultant motivational speaker: Ted Santos advises executive teams to create disruptive strategies. He then works side by side with key personnel to transform corporate culture in a way it supports those disruptive strategies. Through his work with midsize to large corporations, businesses have created quantum leaps in top line growth. He helps them identify and exploit untapped markets …

Are You Passing Your Addictive Behaviors to the Next Generation?


In the past, I wrote an article about second chances.  In the article, I talked about the need to coach, guide or train people before you give them a second chance.  Otherwise, they will most likely repeat the same mistake.  They may repeat the same mistake because they may have retained the same mindset they had for the first chance.  This first chance mindset is not only possessed by the individual it is

In the Words of Yoda: The Counterintuitive Path Take, If You Wish, From Breakdown to Breakthrough Go You Will


The way is the problem you want.  The problem is the way.  To avoid the problem is to avoid the way.  In other words, problems are not theproblem.  Believing problems are problems is the beginning of your problems.  It is not chaos or problems that are problems.  It is how you think about them.  And it is how you think about
