Blunt talk is a foreign language that speaks of Good Inspiring News Only. Few people speak it because of the way it sounds – different. You won’t hear it very often in real-life because like most things that are different, people fear blunt talk until they’ve experienced it, lived it, and seen it. Blunt talk challenges conventional thinking to determine what is real and what is not, what is fiction or non-fiction, what works out and what doesn't work out. But its sole purpose is "Soul Purpose"… to help you achieve the purpose of your soul which is “To Lift.” We have all received the gift of lifting – of being lifted by other people and the potential to lift the world. We have an obligation to share our God-given gifts and talents instead of burying them alive. Blunt Talk will help you do just that by answering the questions you’ve asked for decades: How to get your dream job; how to get in top shape physically and mentally by losing fat in body, mind, and soul; how to get motivated. All the questions you’ve asked for decades. Blunt Talk Podcast doesn’t tell you what to do but it will inspire and direct you listen to host Gino Arcaro lead his guests through their "lifting," real-life stories of success.  #Peace
