"Communicating for Results!"


Vitalia Bryn-Pundyk, M.Ed/DTM

PowerTalk Power Club President

Greeting Power Pals & Visiting Guests!

From Paddle Boat Cruises out on Lake Minnetonka, to Potluck Picnic Parties at the Pundyks, to even Live Stream TV Spot promoting the PowerTalk Power Club ( read that correctly!).... there are so many exciting events happening for all our Power Pal Members!

Last month, Roman & Vitalia hosted and sponsored the annual PowerTalk Power Club Member Appreciation Celebration for all the Power Pals & their Guests.  This month, the PowerTalk Potluck Picnic Party at the Pundyk's takes place on Saturday June 5th...... and the TV Spot???? ....... (drum roll).....

Vitalia's good friend Carla Beaurline (TV Show producer) has offered to "Live Stream" the PowerTalk Pizza Panel Program on her highly popular and engaging "Around Town" TV Show on Facebook and other media platforms! - So excited about this!!!

From social events to social media and live Stream TV advertising, lots of great activity is happening here!

Additional exciting news?  - PowerTalk Pizza Panel Programs are returning to "live in-person meetings" starting THIS month! 

For those of you who still prefer Zoom meeting formats, please be assured that our early morning meetings will remain as Zoom meetings.  The Zoom meetings continue to give us all the practice we need to feel comfortable with online presentations and help us to connect with club members and visiting guests from all over the world, but we have heard from so many of you how much you long to meet again for the "in person face to face" settings, (trust me, Roman and I hear you and really miss those too) - slowly but surely, we are reintroducing "live in-person face to face" program meeting formats to you via the remaining Pizza Panel Programs this year.

For the remainder 2021 year, we will be supporting Frankie's Chicago Style Pizza and will be hosting our PowerTalk Pizza Panel Programs at their New Hope location.  So if you are a full - time VIP Power Talk Power Club Member or just have part-time Pizza Program Membership, please make note of the next upcoming meeting date and our new pizza program location.  Also, please keep in mind that while guests are always welcome, for planning purposes, we will need to be notified if you are bringing anyone to join you.  

Note:  Our next Pizza Panel Program will take place Tuesday, June 8th from 6:00pm-9:00pm.  Please be prepared to sign a TV release form when you arrive, (more details regarding this meeting will come out to our VIP Full time Club Members & part-time Pizza Members in a separate follow up email).

Carla Beaurline and I have been friends for well over 30 plus years!  (pageant days!)  :-)    We are so excited to have her "air" our program on her TV Show that day.  For those of you who are not full VIP Club Members or do not have part time Pizza membership, you will be able to watch it "live" on Facebook Tuesday, June 8th at 7:00pm.  Just go to any of these facebook page links:

Additionally, This is just a quick friendly reminder that we have another great event to look forward to -  our Fall Festival  Mini-Conference Retreat!!!  This is a professional development and networking opportunity to be shared with everyone! Toastmasters, BNI Members, Polka Dots, Savvy Women in Business, family, friends, and associates, etc...  ALL OUR WELCOME!

Please note, not only do we have a continuous "call for speakers" to fill meeting roles each month, but there is also a "call for speakers" for our upcoming Fall Festival to take place Wednesday, September 22nd - Sunday, September 26th at the Sugar Lake Lodge in Grand Rapids, MN.  We are looking for:

  •  3 Professional development workshop presenters (share your subject matter expertise - any topic)
  • 3 Small business growth workshop presenters (what's working for you - networking, marketing, etc....)
  • 3 personal enrichment workshop presenters (any fun topic)

As you can see, there are plenty of fun opportunities to collaborate and participate.  If interested in presenting a workshop at Fall Festival, please submit workshop proposal by June 15th. 

Here is our preliminary Fall Festival catalog with all the event details: Fall Festival

Hope you will ALL join us!

P.S. Early Bird Fall Festival Registration has been extended to July 1st (absolute deadline).

                             Power Idioms

What are idioms?  Idioms appear in every language and English has thousands of them.  They are often confusing because the meaning of the whole group of words taken together has little, often nothing, to do with the meanings of the words taken one by one.

For instance, to "let the cat out of the bag' means to reveal a secret.  Today, the phrase has nothing to do with a cat or a bag, but hundreds of years ago it actually did.

In order to understand a language, you must know what the idioms in that language mean.  if you try to figure out the meaning of an idiom literally, word by word, you will get befuddled.  You have to know its "hidden" meaning.

                                                     The Beauty of Difference

                                                   by Christine A. Ciccone

Business can be simplified, over-simplified, made too complicated, or sometimes made just too plain dreary to even look at!

Personally, I like a table that looks good!  Of course, there have been times, many times, that paper has had to suffice for cloth, but, in all reality, raising the bar does just that, it raises the bar.

What is this all about?  I was thinking about the napkins we set our table with on Sundays, special occasions, holidays…We have many children and grandchildren but, of course, it did not start that way!  In the beginning, everything matched.  Pale blue linen dinner napkins, pretty pinks, and beautiful ivories graced our table.  Then something happened.  Everyone started developing personalities that came out with the napkins!  Our daughters received the pretty pink, sons the blue, Mom the ivory, Dad the plaid, all nestled in wine goblets.  Change happened again as it does in lively households… Fancy ways of displaying the napkins developed, daughters wanting something other than pink, Great Grandma’s napkins with the fancy silver metallic threads woven through were brought out, Dad bought some new colors, neighbors made us some crafty ones …and I discovered that all this difference was good.  I taught my children how to set the table and I was always delighted at the outcome!  Their clever ways of making a table beautiful were way beyond me!

What does this have to do with business?  Everything!  If we live in a business world where everything needs to be the same, we will miss the beauty of difference.  Yes, the basics remain the same, but aside from that, let the creativity of people explode!

If someone was given a napkin that was too small, give them a larger one, one with more responsibility.  Are the metallic shiny threaded ones a bit too harsh, even though they are lovely to look at?  Skills on softening up, truly listening to people, hearing and feeling their needs will help.  Maybe Dad doesn’t want a plaid, perhaps something a bit less noisy.  Business does not have to be the clanging gong!  Easy going does it very well!  Mom does love the linens, but also likes a fun one here and there!  Fun!  Fun is so necessary for business!  Perhaps get together and work sometime.  Have fun!  Are your colors bold and proud, pale and wanting corners, lively, looking to be involved.  Use me?   We are a global community!  Does your table have an international feel?

We all need to take note of words, whether they come from humble, whimsical blogs or from very distinguished papers, words that will teach us a little more about ourselves.  So, let’s see, what kind of dinner napkin are you?  Am I?  Serviceable, but only serviceable?  Pleasing to look at, but that is all?  A paper one that will disappear in water?  One that with stains feels it is now no longer any good?  What colors, what textures?  OY!  Sometimes a pot holder is needed! …


I AM a wife, mom and a grandmom who lives in Minnesota, USA.  I love God, my family, and, unexpected as it may be, I love business.  I can see marketing in everything.  My children would not be able to tell you how many times I have told them, "Honey, that is so cool!  Sell those, you'll make a million!"  God, family, and business all intertwine for me.  One of these factors would not be able to be taken out and still explain, partially, who I am.  I am still so much more, just like everyone else is.  We are the sum of many parts, many interests, but we are also the sum of many, many prayers, prayed by ourselves, parents, grandparents, relatives, friends, children, grandchildren, and on and on and thankfully, on.  My business?  I hold out my hands, offering gold to everyone.  What kind?  I am an Independent Reliv Distributor for Reliv International, based out of Chesterfield, Missouri.  It is a company that offers excellence of health with it's nutritional supplements, being the home of epigenetic nutrition.  With that offer comes the extension of service to you, the opportunity of making a difference in your financial picture, of making such dear friendships, and discovering lifestyles with all kinds of possibilities.  The words Reliv, lunasin, and epigenetics are going to be household words, and soon.  They are a few golden nuggets that I love to share with everyone.  Another one, brand new, is Fit3.  As with God and family, I serve in business.

       PowerTalk Palate

                                      Appetizer Idea: Apple, Gouda & Turkey Skewers

This appetizer takes almost no time to put together – and it uses ingredients you may already have on hand.  On each skewer, add a chunk of apple, a thick slice of Gouda, and a folded slice of deli turkey.  The sweet crunchiness of the apples is a wonderful complement to the creamy cheese and savory meat.  Serve with Surly Furious. Cheers!
