BONUS Episode: Man School with Jordan Harbinger, “I was kidnapped…TWICE!”

This is an episode where I, Jordan Harbinger am the guest rather than the host. In this show, I talk about how I got kidnapped not once, but TWICE, and why I’m here to tell the story. I’ll let Caleb describe his own show… — Thanks to everyone who checked out Jordan Harbinger’s amazing stories on Class #2 “I Was Kidnapped… Twice!” Here’s some of the unusual stuff that Jordan talked about… Class Takeaways: Kidnapping advice: If you are being held against your will, fight against going to a secondary location. “The place where no one can hear you scream.” Knowing the local language helps. Having some self-defense skills can give you an advantage. The police in another country may play by very different rules than they do where you’re from. Come up with an edge. (At one point, Jordan pretended he was sleeping.) “You live and die by your people skills.” A friend with a big mouth can get you in a whole lot of trouble.

Guest Bio: Although Holiday dropped out of college at the age of 19, he spent years training under Robert Greene, author of the nationally known book, “The 48 Laws of Power.” It is through this training period that Holiday learned how to be a master media manipulator. He spent years coaching various musicians and authors on how to sell themselves as a brand name, and worked as a marketing strategist for people like Dov Charney and Tucker Max. Companies such as Twitter, Google and YouTube have used his marketing campaign strategies, and he has caught the attention of top media outlets including the New York Times, Gawker and AdAge. He also served as the Director of Marketing for American Apparel, where as he explains in the book, he felt the real consequences of media manipulation. He is still a blogger living in New Orleans, and posts regularly on his own website

Episode #190: Lt. Col. Jason LeDuc, United States Air Force

We’ve all heard Networking is a very powerful skill, and that it’s not WHAT you know, but WHO you know.  However, in the military, a lot of this game is played while the majority of the participants are unaware, or sitting on the sideline. We at The Art of Charm crew first decided to do this show after hearing from a LOT of our military clients that “networking isn’t important in the armed forces” -something we just could not believe.  In this episode, AoC program graduate Lt. Col. LeDuc shatters this myth, and gives some seriously helpful (and simple!) tips for networking in the military, obtaining coveted assignments, and  garnering support for your career on your way to the top. Guest Bio: Lieutenant Colonel Jason LeDuc is currently assigned to the Air War College Distance Learning Program at Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama. He has served on active duty in the US Air Force for almost 18 years including assignments at Edwards Air Force Base, California; Hanscom Air Force Base, Massachusetts; and Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado. He has worked a variety of assignments from basic research and development at the Air Force Research Laboratory Rocket Propulsion Site; as a project engineer and flight test director for radar and electronic warfare systems; as well rapid development and test of systems for Air Force Space Command. He has deployed to the Combined Air and Space Operations Center, Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar as an operations planner and to the Office of Security Cooperation – Iraq in Baghdad as a Foreign Military Sales case manager. He has a Bachelors of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering from Boston University and a Masters of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Northeastern University. He is also a graduate of the US Air Force Air War College Distance Learning program.

Episode #182: Erin, former CIA operative

Erin emailed me out of the blue one day telling me that what we do and talk about at AoC is “remarkably similar” to what’s taught by the CIA at “The Farm”. Obviously, my curiosity was piqued, and after verifying that she was the real deal, we decided to do a show together. From 2000 to 2010, Erin served as an Operations officer with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), with seven years experience in managing overseas collection operations and counterterrorism activities for the intelligence community. She served as an operations officer in several critical posts in the Middle East as well as extensive travel in Africa, Eastern Europe, and Southeast Asia, and is experienced in Arab and South Asian issues and cultures. Erin has extensive experience in recruiting appropriate personnel to work within the intelligence community, and has been recognized by senior Agency management for her leadership, planning, organizational abilities and excellent interpersonal skills. In this episode of the show, we take a look at: -Establishing rapport, and why it’s the “gateway” to achieve what you are looking for. -Giving-to-get -Confidence vs. Arrogance -Eliciting information Of course, I also picked Erin’s brain about whether or not she’d had any close calls while on duty, how she got her job (the answer WILL surprise you), and about which CIA skills she uses every day.

Synopsis: Sure, Top Secret cleared staff and employees have ‘protocol’ and rules to follow regarding internet use and social media -but what if they don’t (or won’t) follow them? What if they’re looking to jump ship and no longer care about policy?

Let’s get a few things straight:

  1. You’re going to get rejected. Deal with it, and go approach anyway.
  2. The only way you can get better is by approaching and practicing.

Now that that’s out of the way, check out the rest of AJ & Jordan’s tips on opening.
