"Communicating for Results!"


Vitalia Bryn-Pundyk, M.Ed/DTM/DPP

PowerTalk Power Club President

Greeting Power Pals & Visiting Guests!

September is here and that means "back to school for all of us!"

Whether it's heading back to college (maybe sending your kids back to college), signing up for some on-line courses, getting new skills training and/or certified in our various areas of expertise, it seems that there is something always new we can learn every day.

I'm a firm believer in life-long education for both professional development and personal growth.  Continuing our education helps us to hone our crafts, stay current within our fields, and become masters at what we do.

Our PowerTalk Power Club is designed to support you in your growth:

  • It provides a great small business networking environment for future referrals, resource sharing, and exciting collaborations.
  • It provides plenty of opportunities to practice your presentations and receive positive assuring feedback for a job well done and suggestions for areas that can be improved.
  • It provides a platform to promote your own programs, products, and services.
  • and for those who are not necessarily professional speakers, authors, or small business owners, but still believe in the value of continuing their education, our club is a wonderful place to hear great speakers on a variety of topics and learn something new!

This month, I hope you will fully embrace and  take advantage of all that our PowerTalk Power Club offers.  We conduct our early morning meetings via Zoom and will be meeting at Frankie's Chicago Style Pizza in New Hope for the Pizza Panel Program Presentations!

Additionally, the PowerTalk Power Club Fall Festival & Mini-Conference Retreat  & September Speech-a-thon Speech Contest will take place the end of this month at the Sugar Lake Lodge in Grand Rapids, MN. - We look forward to seeing all those of you who can join us!

                             Power Idioms

Some idioms originated as colloquialisms (informal speech) or slang (casual, playful, nonstandard language).  Some were well-known proverbs and adges (short sayings that express practical, basic truths).  Some popular idioms began as folksy sayings used in particular regions of the country and spoken in local dialects.  Many came from other countries, although most of the idioms in this newsletter are Americanisms.  Some idioms go back in time to ancient Greeks and Romans, thousands of years ago.  Others are more recent.

      PowerTalk Punch Lines

                              A Cup of Tea

One day my Grandma was out, and my Grandpa was in charge of me.  I was maybe 2 1/2 years old.  Someone had given me a little 'tea set' as a gift, and it was one of my favorite toys.

Grandpa was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought him a little cup of 'tea', which was just water.  After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Grandma came home.

My Grandpa made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!' 

Grandma waited, and sure enough, here I came down the hall with a cup of tea for Grandpa, and she watched him drink it up.

Then she said, (as only a grandma would know) "'Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water is the toilet?"

                            The Hair Cut

A teenage boy had just passed his driving test and inquired of his father as to when they could discuss his use of the car.

His father said he'd make a deal with his son, "You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little, and get your hair cut.  Then we'll talk about the car."

The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he'd settle for the offer, and they agreed on it.   After about six weeks his father said, "Son, you've brought your grades up and I've observed that you have been studying your Bible, but I'm disappointed you haven't had your hair cut."

The boy said, "You know, Dad, I've been thinking about that, and I've noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair, and there's even strong evidence that Jesus had long hair."

Love the Dad's reply! "Did you also notice that they all walked everywhere they went?"

                                                               Easy Gruyère Bites

If you like cheese, you’re going to love this easy appetizer!  Simply wrap up cubes of Gruyère cheese in thin strips of Serrano ham and serve with honey mustard sauce for dipping.  Gruyère, named after the Swiss town of Gruyères, is a crumbly yet creamy cheese with a pleasantly sweet and nutty flavor that goes perfectly with salty, dry-cured Serrano ham.  Delicious paired with a chilled glass of Inama Soave Classico, a dry white Italian wine.
