"Nothing Replaces Face-to-Face"
I don't know if you noticed, but of late, more and more emails have those smiley faces showing up in the message. Maybe those symbols are okay on a handwritten note, but if you're depending on them to make a statement in business or to resolve any kind of dispute, "forget it". Let's just say it: "conveying emotions through e-mail sucks." Never engage in disagreements -- personal or business -- electronically. And, if possible, not even by phone. Nothing replaces face-to-face. Younger folks, who have grown up with email and Text, may think I'm nuts. But email allows misunderstandings to ratchet up. In person, you can see how someone is reacting. You can pause, re-assess and adapt. You can even say, "I'm sorry", eyeball to eyeball.

More about "Getting Your Money's Worth"

As the title of the show, "Getting your Money's Worth" implies, the show concerns itself with gaining value as a consumer of education, health services or, indeed, as a tax payer. Everyday consumer spending will be included. The dialogue may not present solutions, but certainly will present alternatives in an entertaining and colorful way with experts in their respective fields.

Ms. West, a former educator, is president of Westco, her own privately held company. Westco designs and manufactures fixtures for such blue chip companies as Disney, Universal Studios, the NBC Experience Store and many others. Business people, authors and journalists, educators, politicians and actors will be interviewed in 15-minute segments with civility and dignity. "I don't care what your politics are, if you have a point of view and have a story to tell that is timely, you'll get a chance to freely air your opinion," says the attractive New Yorker.
