UBOW: Working for You Isn't Working for Me

Hey everyone! It's been a minute because I've been on hiatus. The show, has been on hiatus too, and I've currently been working on other things; which you will see manifest shortly. So, I have just recently started a new job and I'm close to ten (10) months in and it has been a true roller coaster ride. I have learned that while you can be talented, smart and obtain a wealth of information as well as very resourceful, that doesn't necessarily mean that you're fit to lead or train. I also learned that everyone has a different way of communicating (or can't) at all. I will admit that the encounters on this job though I have met before, it hasn't, however been met in this way. This is the first job that I've met people who are very warn, tired and now in coasting mode along with many stresses that affect their everyday, and because of that, the office isn't what it should be. I can say that I'm blessed because out of all of the jobs I've h

UBOW: Shame Proof Parenting

Hey Yall!!! It's Until........  You know, with Until's Book of the Week. This is a "Special Editon" because it's about helping our parents feel better about parenting. This book is called "Shame Proof Parenting" by parenting coach Mercedes Samudio. How do you know you're getting the parenting thing right? You're questioning yourself because your preschooler is throwing tantrums, your tween receives a crushing text message from her friend or your teenager starts to act out in rebellion. What do you do? You worry your reaction is just going to make everything worse, drive a wedge between you and your child. And to add insult to injury your mother will call and say, "I told you so". You're finding that typical parenting advice doesn't help, either. You find that your child's behavior is still a problem, while you're sinking in self-doubt. Well, you're not alone. " Shame Proof Parenting" is

The Return: Until's Book of the Week

Y ou know  "Until's Book of the Week" as a radio segment  but did you know that it was a column in the California Crusader Newspaper? "Until's Book of the Week" has been around for more than three (3) years and though its had its trials, amazingly it's still here. History :   Until's Book of the Week's inception happened in late 2010 and from there until now with just a few hiccups, became a radio segment on more than a few radio shows. It started with Sunset and Gumbo , moved to  Until & Harmony Live and ended with  OMG Radio show . Later in 2011 is where Until received the opportunity to have a column which took place more than two years ago. However, for the first four months in the paper it was known as "The Book of the Week" and mistakenly thought of as a Book review.  But later do to people's interest and the response of people realizing it was Until from the radio segment and that was her column, sh
