The following 3 Paragraphs are paraphrased from JOE’s Opening Statement about THE REVOLUTION found at:
“Join The Revolution – sign up today and spin out your stories, and, create your own media group just like this group and tell the world about your book, your project, your music, or your ambition, and add your own blogs, book link, pictures, videos and promotional links. It really is that simple. You will be in charge of all administration!
Technology has given us the power to make our voices heard, but as the old saying goes, “with great power comes great responsibility.” It is our pledge to you, our readers, writers and artists that our journalists will honor that responsibility to bring you objective, fact-based news as well as editorials that span a wide spectrum of viewpoints. We welcome everyone into the dialogue, from all ends of all spectrums- the left, the right, the moderate, the religious, the non-religious, the liberal, the conservative, and everyone in between. Our nation was founded on a similar platform. While our forefathers may have engaged in passionate shouting at each other when trying to give birth to the United States, one thing they all agreed upon was that everyone had the right to speak.
This is an exciting time for us. We have come a long way in a short period of time and we are about to challenge the ‘establishment’ publications for a place at the apex of news and opinion journalism. We sincerely hope that you will join us on this journey. You will not be disappointed. The truth about everything that affects you is about to be available in one place.”

One never knows WHAT GOES WITH JOE - that's Part of the FUN in being part of his Big Adventure that I always look forward (to).

Immortalizing ASK's EVENTOLOGY's Twenty-Third Milestone Year: July 25, 2013.


“Today, Thursday, July 25, 2013 @ 9:45 PM marks my 23RD Year Anniversary of the Creation of the Literary Genre I introduced to the World called:

The Art of Event-Making
Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith's
Campaigns For Humanity ©1990

that now contains well over 1,900 'Holidates to Celebrate' in 34 precise Categories. Enjoying the Concept of HOW EVENTS AFFECT US that has subsequently spanned across so many Topics is what I find so fascinating about the entire Process that Eventology has produced and hopefully, will continue to provide in the Days, Times and Decades ahead. That spells out as ‘Intrigue’ to me. And, of course, many of the Topics have lent themselves to my Books & Movie Scripts. After all the Seed of anything does begin with a Thought that takes place and grows from that point on. Twenty-three years encompasses over One-Third of my Lifetime in Points (alone).”

Quote of: ASK: Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith

He’s a TV Star – He’s Nick Podany and he’s in Evanston!

ALL IN A DAY’S WORK:  My Work is never ‘Work.’  I sit and write all day long.  What could be more FUN than that.  And, pursuing a Career that you feel is FUN is what really matters. It’s what drives a person to be(come) a success while keeping that passion alive. 

So here I was sitting @ Northwestern University when a young man approaches me asking about how to print a script.  I helped him as I’m good @ things like that.  We start to chat and he tells me he’s from LA where my Kid Sister, Linda Koopersmith (d/b/a:  The Beverly Hills Organizer) has resided and worked for decades now.  When you're conversing, it's a general Rule to always find some sort of ‘common ground’ when you’re networking and making new Friends.  That's just the Nature of (Beauty and) The Beast. It helps melt away that 6 Degrees of Separation that Kevin Bacon made famous which was followed by Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook that has that quotient down to probably between 1.5-2 (@ the most).

After some small but  not trivial talk about the printing process and how his latest Script will print on 2 Sides instead of 1; is it hard to memorize lines and Shakespearean Theatre, it turns out he is none other than:

Nicholas Podany,
an up-and-coming Actor

who’s here LIVE at NorthWestern University for 5 weeks this summer, taking relevant Acting Courses that he finds of interest.  He tells me he’s done some TV.  I kiddingly ask him if he knows Tom Hanks, who is, has been and may always be my favorite Actor.  Nick tells me he attended an Event in which Tom’s Charity was highlighted. Tom was not able to appear. I then told Nick about the time I was to meet Richard Branson in order to attend the Opening of his Virgin Store in Chicago (on Michigan & Ohio Streets) in the 1990s, but Sir Richard had an unforeseen previous engagement. Branson's staffers did personally fax, then email me, relaying the news that he would not be in attendance.  Was I crushed?  I was crushed.  Things like this (unexpected Events) happen when you're a Serial Hot Shot.  I should have asked Nick if he knows Johnny Depp. 

Back in LA, Nick will be a Senior in High School in the Fall. He says that although he is striving for a full-time career in Acting, he does have a solid interest in math and the sciences.  He then tells me that he is often cast on THE HART OF DIXIE SERIES.  So I google THE HART OF DIXIE SERIES as Nick is telling me about the series.  I felt badly I don’t watch it, but I bet I’ll start now. 

That's one of the good things about Networking.  Via Word of Tongue, you're reaching People -- even Generations and Decades older or younger thanyourself. It's a 2-way street.  In techno - geek circles this is known as:

Word of Mouse vs. Word of Mouth. 

Both are highly efficient means. 

THEN:  one click leads itself into another and a super(b) online Article pops up at:

that explains how a Local [Los Angeles] Guy is following his dream. AND, so young, too!  NIck possesses that young, laid back, heart-throb look. He's moldable and adjustable; flexible and this is what's needed.  They call that Cross-Over POW-tential.    

As the Larchmont Buzz (newspaper’s masthead) reads: “Buzzing with News from Larchmont Village, Hancock Park and the Greater Wilshire areas of Los Angeles,” columnist,  Julie Grist wrote and posted this Article back on Wednesday, November 30, 2011 when Nick was 15. 

She relays: 

"Norton Ave. native Nicholas Podany is only 15 years old, but his career in acting and music certainly seems to be taking off. In love with the stage since he was a child at St. James and Open Charter schools, Podany is currently playing a lead role in Hermetically Sealed a new play by Kathryn Graf at the Skylight Theater in Los Feliz.

Podany describes the show as a “psychological drama with an interesting twist” that he hopes will provide the audience with much to think about. He plays a teenage son, drawn to the sofa and video games, in a dysfunctional family who’s secrets begin to unravel them over the course of a day. The LA Times made the show a Critics Choice and called it “quietly haunting.” Hermetically Sealed runs Fri-Sat-Sun evenings from now through December 18th.

Besides doing the schoolwork required as a sophomore at Brentwood High School, Podany also finds the time to write and perform music. You can see him playing drums, guitar, keyboards, bass AND singing on his YouTube channel Across Coves. It’s worth a visit – not only to hear this nascent talent – but also to see his young face and clear voice change over the course of his five videos, and to see the family home and Windsor Square neighborhood featured as the backdrop in many of his productions.

Our bet is this local kid is going to go far."



Nick said he started out acting when he was really young.  Some parents do that so that their children get careers that will cast them into the Spotlight. Plus, it’s probably the greatest way in which to network as well.  So, it’s been SOME TIME that Nick has consistently been Acting and getting involved in every AE:  Acting  Endeavor that he can.  How cool is that.  No chip on his shoulder.  Just a nice kid printing out his next script. 

For instance, he will be in 2 productions here at Northwestern – next Friday on August 2 at 9 PM and the following Tuesday, but I can’t remember where he stated it would be held. This is a large campus (after all).  I did give him my card & told him to keep me posted. 

During out conversation at the part when he is telling me about THE HART OF DIXIE series, I googled his Name; flipped on the IMAGE button and voila:

pops up.  Little do you know who you are going to meet. Let that serve as Inspiration to all of you reading this, Grasshopper!

And darn, I should have asked him for his Autograph before he slipped away to an exciting life and game-plan that is unfolding before him. 
With the Moral being this:  if you can make your "WORK" not seem like "WORK" as Nick illustrated to me, you're on the right ('write' to us writers) Road to Success and Fulfilment. 

Guess what:  Nick Podany is not 'local' anymore.

Chicago's Very Own Shalom Klein & Andrea Storz discussing Today’s Employment Market in Illinois for the Older Employee.


Dateline:  Sunday, July 21, 2013 – 9 AM HOUR
Location: The WiFi Building / Skokie, IL

My Time  spent  with Shalom Klein and Andrea Storz:

Discussing Today’s Employment Market in Illinois for the Older Employee

Thank U William and Nasser. No, this Photo is not an Endorsement for Andrea's Dunkin Donuts Cup of Joe, although it most likely could be. We were in a heated discussion (Shalom was seated across from me and taking the Picture) about the Senior Job Market and how to best work it. And, Senior in this case is anyone over 40.

My Tweet that I wrote after our Meeting at the really cool WiFi Bldg located on McCormick in #Skokie follows:

@syklein On B-1/2 of 1000s, SK, thx 4 producg #Events makg ‘R Job Hunts’ better by utilizg the 3 Rs of: Reinventg, Re-Evaluatg & Reflecting.

For those who are looking for meaningful employment &/or ‘just a job’ to make ends meet which is what tens of thousands (if not more) across the world are currently doing, Andrea stated that it is necessary to stay organized; schedule your day; network; focus on your computer work; make those phone calls whereby your time-management skills are called into play. She also suggested that looking at the Smaller Companies is a wise idea, as well as approaching companies YOU want to work (at). Develop a plan after you’ve spent some time reflecting about your prior accomplishments.

Thinking creatively and asserting yourself with a firm and professional Identity of WHO YOU ARE will open those doors that will take you on to your next journey in life. And, it may be in a profession that you previously did not do, but one that can be developed once a resume is rewritten.

If you remain focused, by developing conversations with other (especially via the Social Media Network of LinkedIn), your approach will be much more fruitful. Remain flexible as the Competition to find, get and retain “WORK” is extreme, but let ‘the/your Potential Employer’ know that you bring a comprehensive package to ‘the table.’ Once you know what the Culture of the Company is, then a beneficial match may be made. Every day should be one in which you keep a Written List of Contacts that can be recontacted after a 2-3 month period.

And, what I like to do is a Year-End in Review, where I cite what I did; what my Accomplishments is/are/were and then post it on my Blog as well as send to Digest, Newspapers/Magazines that would/could appreciate the Topics (my Specialties). This way with CONTENT BEING KING, I then present myself as an expert/authority in the Field and can later be called upon for a comment, quote or v.o.: valued opinion.

A very interesting Point Andrea made concerned Networking with ‘The Unemployed. ‘ The example being this: You go to a Job Fair, armed in new business attire, hair cut or ‘do,’ business cards and a resume. Over 5,000 people alone attended Shalom Klein’s June, 2013 Annual Job Fair that was held at Evanston Township High School. That number alone boggles one’s mind. And, this is a Microcosm of THE PEOPLE across the USA alone who are looking for a job; a new job; an additional job or their first job. Keeping positive against these odds take a ‘Man or Woman of Steel Mentality.’

Everyone there is decked out hoping to impress that one employer who will MAKE THAT DIFFERENCE. “Are you not in contention with everyone there in that room for that ever-fleeting job?” I asked Andrea.

To which Andrea Storz, the Employment Director at Ark/Chicago stated: “There’s no one more sympathetic than another unemployed person. He or she may have just had an interview that was not exactly right for them, but it MIGHT be the best fit for you.”

Funny (but then it’s not funny in the comical sense, of course), I never thought of that mindset, ever.

IN CLOSING: Summing up this wonderful opportunity that Shalom Klein & Andrea Storz presented for me today as I was able to attain their counsel for an entire hour is this: Your ‘Qualification Brief’ that lists your Core Strengths combined with the Social Media Network of LinkedIn along with a Realistic View of where you stand in today’s Job Market, will land that job for you.

Shalom Klein is someone to familiarize yourself with. He is the Founder of: Jewish B-2-B Networking and you do not have to be a ‘Member of the Tribe’ to participate in his Employment Workshops and Seminars that he hosts in Chicago/Skokie, neighboring Suburbs as well as in Milwaukee, St. Louis & Detroit.

Two upcoming Events include:

An Engaging Evening of Speed Networking

Where: The Metropolitan Club - Willis Tower

233 S. Wacker, Chicago

When: Thursday, July 25, 2013 - 5:30pm

Shalom Klein Networking - JB2B HOP 2 Networkers
The inaugural meeting will be Thursday August 1, 2013 from 7:30 – 9:00am. The meeting will be held is Skokie.

Hour of Power Networkers - August Meeting
Where: Details on joining are available by invitation only
When: Wednesday, August 14, 2013 - 7:30am

Visit Mr. Klein at: where the LATEST JOB POSTS are found (lower right hand corner in Turquoise Ink).

As an Employment Professional for many years, Andrea Storz of Ark/Chicago also blogs about the ever-changing Job Scene, thus providing a current and perpetually updated Resource of Knowledge that you may wish to sign up for by merely emailing her at:


I cannot thank these two people enough for taking time out of their day to share ‘The(ir) Knowledge.’ Thank you, Andrea – Thank you Shalom. And, if Dunkin Donuts wants to sponsor their next event, I think something can be ‘worked ‘out.

“Having it all @ 60 & Beyond.”

Born on Saturday, August 9, 1952, ASK introduced:



to the Wþrld on Wednesday, July 25, 1990 at 9:45 PM.  Now consisting of over 1,900 HOLIDATES TO CELEBRATE falling into 34 precise Categories, INTERNATIONAL HAIR-ITAGE™ DAYS ©1994 stands on its own unique Merit and encapsulates by defining how (a) Day(s) should be lead and played out.  Natural Beauty’ for an Individual (either Female or Male) starts with CARE-ing for One’s Self, first & foremost and then by spreading The Genuine and Sincere Thoughtfulness & Joy that radiates via Original & Creative EVENTS to others, as the extensive Collection that  ASK has creatively culled, amassed and has systematically been producing for 23 years [now as of Thursday, July 25, 2013] attests (to). 

Continuing in this Altruistic Vein, ASK was selected from over 400 Participants at the October, 2008 Chicago Cattle Call for SHE's GOT THE LOOK spearheaded by Fashionista Robert Verdi of New York City.   Currently, another one of her HOLIDATES, NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994 (that was featured in the June, 2010 ‘100 Most Creative’  Issue of FAST COMPANY based in New York City) has GO-GO-GONE VIRAL. 

2014 marks NSD’s (NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994) 20TH Year Anniversary.  ADRiENNE’s Team is now approaching the Top Twenty (20) Fortune 500 Companies/Brands in order to gain their Sponsorship & Support for this most monumental HOLIDATE’s Celebration.  If you are interested in that once-in-a-lifetime Golden Opportunity to work with ASK: THE BRAND, to show (entice and reveal) others how ‘THE URGE TO SPLURGE ™’ is beneficially performed (as there is an explicit ASKIAN Technique at work here) via YOUR SPECIFIC PRODUCT LINE, contact her directly at:

THE PSYCHOLOGY BEHIND THE EVENT-FILLED HOLIDATES:  Working alongside MS. KOOPERSMITH who has single-handedly created this innovative Niche Marketing Profile known as EVENTOLOGY (where she reigns as ‘the only Person with this NAME RECOGNITION on our Green & Granite Planet’) secures FOR YOU that ‘every Day’ your Legion of Fans & Followers will visit your Website & Social Media Networks and ultimately Shops & Online Boutiques in order to fill-in their Days as best as possible with your Product Line.

That’s a Given.

That’s a Guarantee.

That’s WHO and WHAT they ‘ASK’ for.

WALKING THE WALK & TALKING THE TALK.  Knowing Health & Beauty run hand-in-hand on a Daily Basis, ADRiENNE is an avid Bicyclist that cycles (at least) 100 Miles a Week, even in the Bleakness of a Chicago Winter in order to stay trim and slim.  Additionally, although she is a BabyBoomer ‘Growing up Koopersmith’ in the turbulent 1960s, she chose not to drink; not to smoke; not to dye her hair and not to sunbathe.  Because she never over-indulged or was ‘tempted’ by what Psychologists call ‘Vices’ that have become unshakable Addictions to hundreds of millions across the Planet for generations, she has managed to retain her Youthfulness, Energy, Vigor  and Vitality, the Four Elements no Amount of Money cannot buy.  Four Hundred (400) of her 1,900 HOLIDATES help her achieve and maintain this Plateau. Called EAT-VENTS these are Edible Dates found throughout one’s very own Calendar that teaches how to eat healthily and wisely.  Exercise is included.

2015 is the 25TH Year Milestone of ATE:  All Things EVENTOLOGICAL.  And, of course, the Promotions have already begun as ASK also heads her own PRAM: Public Relations – Advertising – Marketing Group using the Social Media Networks of Twitter, LinkedIn & Facebook as her primary Means of Distribution.   

FURTHERMORE,  ADRiENNE knows first-hand that Aging is a Personal, Social, Familial & Economic Demographic that must be considered in every Aspect of Life.  AFSEE: ADVOCATES FOR SENIOR EQUALITY & ENRICHMENT ©2009 is ASK’s  Creative Composition Platform & Forum where she writes about the Issues facing those Fifty-Plus.3  Her decade-long Findings & Viewpoints are then placed on her Blog called KOOPERSMITHin’ at:

In rounding out her Lifestyle Decisions in a historical vein, she tells us: 

“Dove® Products have advanced throughout the Decades

and have attained a loyal & devoted Following secured.

Taking them through their Senior & Seniorita Years is the ‘EVENTOLOGICAL’ Road to take,”

  “It’s the logical Path to take, making each EVENT just that.’

As a Youth in the 1960s using Dove® Products to an active, personable and vivacious Senior,
