Kevin Price, Publisher and Editor in Chief of USDR hosts the Price of Business on Business Talk 1110 AM KTEK on Bloomberg’s home in Houston. Recently Price interviewed Jesse Carter, author of, “Got a Bad Picker?” (Outskirts Press).
According to the publisher: “Do you ever feel constrained or dissatisfied by life or your relationships, like you’re living in a straitjacket? Are you frustrated trying to make sense of love or all of the chaos around you? The search for the meaning of it all has given Philosophers nightmares throughout the ages. In reality, the meaning of life is what you give it. In other words, we as humans have the choice to decide what’s important to us. Accepting and take responsibility for these choices is the ultimate freedom and the beginnings of contentment. In this book, we explore potential root causes and consequences of making poor relationship choices. Then, most importantly, how to enhance and fix a bad picker. And lastly, how by becoming your own match maker, by using objective data, rules, and strategies you can make the best choices for your happiness. The strategy is to act as if you were match making for your very best friend, but in reality you’re gaining self awareness and making more objective and intuitive decisions for yourself. Although this book was written for dissatisfied relationship minded women. There are universal themes explored which has utility for satisfied couples, and men as well. In this book, I draw upon the wealth of positive psychology research along with practically tested clinical experience to offer a wide array of innovative holistic exercises designed to assist and improve your well-being and that of your family/relationships. The goals are to restore balance to your life by: utilizing new strategies, finding your rhythm and flow, improve self esteem, confidence, and assisting you in taking charge of your life.”
