I’m Nicole Gabriel, the host of the show. And, I’m happy you joined me here today! I’ve worked in the publishing industry for awhile now and I’ve seen many things over the years. I began my career in the advertising business back in the early 90’s. I’ve worked for all the top ad agencies. I began my career at McCann Erickson, then worked my way into J. Walter Thompson, Young & Rubicam, and then went over to the client side and did my time in executive management in all the American auto companies - General Motors, Ford, and (at the time) Daimler Chrysler. I was in the business back in the days of George magazine. I was there at the birth of the internet. I was on a few teams that built the very first websites for many in the automotive business. Some days it feels like it was another lifetime ago, but the basics of the advertising and marketing business are the same no matter the media used. I surrounded myself with brand management...
Wow Guys! What a week it was last week!
So much happening in the world right now! It’s an amazing (and challenging) time to be here!
I’m Nicole Gabriel, the host of the show. And, I’m happy you joined me here today!
I’m on a roll with the truth bombs, now it’s time I let you know that most people really don’t care to hear them! The publishing industry is a funny world. People have this idea of fortune and fame the other side of a written book. But, the success, like in many fields, is in the hustle.
There’s a wonderful quote by Mark Twain that says:
“It’s easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled.
There is another quote that says:
“If you repeat a lie often enough it becomes truth.”
There is another that say:
“Silence is the best reply to a fool.”
But…when you run a podcast and write books this last one stands no chance! In fact, as a self-published...
Hey Guys! Nicole Gabriel here!
How many times in life do we get to fulfill a desire? How many times do we ever even get asked what fires us up or fulfills a passion? It’s perhaps never been asked to some of us and for others it seems to be a question we may only ask early on as we enter college or later on as we pass through some major life turning point. I can even bet that many of us don’t even know what our passion is.
If you were asked - what do you feel called to do? Or, how do you wish to serve humanity? Would you even be able to answer that? Is the thing that you are doing now for your career the thing you always wished to do or did you just fall into it over time?
I, personally, have asked myself this question many times at several stages of my life. My answer has been numerous things, and at certain crossroads I have also based my answer on where I’m currently sitting. But, what if you could dive deep into your soul to determine and know without a...
Hey Guys! Nicole Gabriel here. I’ve been so busy during the lockdown as it seems everyone now has the time to write and publish a book. I don’t often talk on my podcasts about the new books that have launched from one episode to the next. My Angel Dog Productions social media pages will generally showcase these books. The latest to go into production are:
Let me tell you a little about these books: Robert has dreamt about writing his baseball story for years and finally pushed into home plate. Amanda amazes me as she is blind and still pushed forward and wrote her book, when many seeing people have yet to accomplish this feat. Rob lost his wife to cancer and is living her legacy through his...
Hey Guys! Nicole Gabriel here!
I want to talk about the idea of discerning the narrative and the deception of truth on today's episode. What I mean by this in particular is how we know our truth and how we stand within it when we are surrounded by the manipulation of a particular narrative…whether this is by that of the media or the people that surround us in our day-to-day lives. There is either a manipulative agenda we fall into as a result of the toxicity around us and the collective beliefs or storylines therein…or we break free…perhaps into the idea of dreaming our world into being… by understanding the story that must play out to awaken humanity.
There are gifts and pains in awareness. The gifts are knowing how things will play out, but the pains are in waiting for others to awaken. I suppose it would be much like raising a child. They are either not mature or experienced enough to see or they simply cannot see into the corruption of life...
Hey Guys! Nicole here!
So have you heard all this talk about the United States being a corporation and not a republic? Whoa! OK, so this kind of stuff has never been my specialty, but I’m going to do my best to explain this to you in the simplest of ways…because, after all, we have been talking about the truth around here lately.
So, in 1871 Congress passed an act that formed a corporation known as THE UNITED STATES. The original Constitution drafted by the Founding Fathers read: ‘The Constitution for the united states of America.’ Something also to note is that neither the words ‘united’ nor ‘states’ began with capital letters! But the ‘CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA’ is a corporate constitution, which is absolutely NOT the same document you think it is. First of all, it ended all our rights of sovereignty (or power).
Under the corporation it can be said that we the people are more or less a...
Hey Guys! Nicole here!
I’m gonna get a little “woo-hoo” today. I’m taking this topic of truth a bit deeper as it seems I’ve opened up my intuitive nature once again. I do believe this all relates to book writing, as so much of the journey an author goes through is a battle of mind and presence. So, without further adieu, lets get into todays show about the vibrational resonance of truth…
Science, through Quantum Physics, is showing us that everything in our universe is energy—it has its own vibrational frequency.
Perhaps you have heard of the Law of Attraction? There is also the The Law of Vibration. Everything has its own vibrational frequency - the table, the cup, the vase - even our thoughts and feelings. It is all governed by The Law of Vibration.
I began to wonder if truth could be measured in some way and as I was meditating I heard my inner voice speak to me loud and clear that truth has a vibrational resonance. I know enough...
Hey Guys Nicole Gabriel here!
A book makes an opinion fact…have you ever thought about this? I mean really thought about this? When something is written it seems to be accepted in mainstream culture as fact. Something gets debated and well…so-and-so said it was true…see, it is written here. A quote seems to be gospel for truth, even though it’s simply a personal thought captured and repurposed. We all toss around these meme’s on social media like some kind of gospel for inspiration, motivation, or to provoke deep thought. But, how many of us are original thinkers with original thoughts and opinions?
Those that really take the time to get to know me know that I’m not the fun-time girl some would like to make my out to be. I’m blonde so I guess that comes with the territory. It’s been a battle I’ve fought my whole life…people that want to make you into the likeness that fits for them. I know from a more advanced and...
Hey guys! Nicole Gabriel here. As some of you know, my first book is titled Finding Your Inner Truth and in my book I share what became true for me during a period of time in my life. Throughout the book I tell my stories and ask the reader “what is true for you?”
The concept of truth I believe is based on our personal experiences…what is true for you may vary from someone else. These days it seems we are all asking what is true. For me (many years ago when I wrote my first book) when something was outside of the norm and different from what I was expecting or used to I began seeking answers. In many cases, especially early on, I went seeking outside of myself for these answers.
Why did this happen? Who is to blame? Why didn’t I know? Who’s responsibility was it to tell me? Do other people know this? If so, where are they and how do I find and unite with them? And what code of ethics or system can I apply my new found truth to? And, once I...
Since my platform is all about self publishing… the freedom of the press and the ability to have free speech is something I’m watching these days. I thought this to be a very apropos subject for discussion on today’s podcast given the state of our lockdown and messy political system we are all wrapped up in.
I’m tired of being censored and shut down on social media and I’m tired of the biased propaganda in the mainstream media! How about you?
Hi Guys! Nicole Gabriel here.
The First Amendment guarantees the right to express ideas and information. People can express an opinion (whether popular or unpopular) without government censoring. All forms of communication are protected.
I wanted to understand if the first amendment had limits, so I did some research to understand it some more. We are allowed to speak our mind and stand up for what we believe in as long as we are not harming others to get what we want. We are not allowed to use speech to...
