Controversial and Thought-Provoking

One way to:

  • broaden your horizons,
  • expose yourself to alternative viewpoints,
  • reinforce your own positions,
  • enhance your conversations, and
  • explore that which feeds the language of success

is to seek out other people’s commentary, viewpoints, and research.

The following links—an ever-expanding list as I learn of more material related to the topic of “talking white” and its related principles of success—are for you to explore as you see fit. I neither endorse nor support any of these links. They are items I find interesting and/or controversial and I think you will, too.

Please let me know if any of these links are no longer active. I check periodically, yet cannot keep track of everything all the time.


(Print this page and check-off the sites as you visit them. As the list grows longer, you need a way to keep track of what you’ve visited.)
