Welcome to Starstyle®-Be the Star You Are!® with your hosts Cynthia Brian and Heather Brittany on the Voice America Empowerment ChannelOur goal is to seed, stimulate, and support space for positive, meaningful conversations that will get you talking around the dinner table.

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” is a question frequently asked of children. Their responses are almost always ambitious – a business owner, an architect, a space engineer, a marine biologist. But what children don’t often learn from a young age are the principles and habits that will help lead them there. A new early chapter book series, The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob changes this.  A Journey Begins is the Winner in the Children's/Juvenile Fiction category of the 2015 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. As a lifelong student of achievement philosophies, Brooks Olbrys was inspired by his young son to make positive philosophies accessible to children through this storybook series. Dive into learning and fun with the newest book in the series, The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob, A Challenging Job.

Everyone makes mistakes, but not everyone knows how to effectively apologize. Apologizing proves competence because you admit what you did and how you will fix it. In T42, Cynthia Brian and Heather Brittany show ways to own our faults and pave the way to building better relationships.

Children are sadly exposed to an inordinate amount of violence in the media. Setting boundaries to external negative sources is crucial to maintain a sense of love and security for kids. Give the gift of love to your children by limiting their television, computer, print news, and radio access with the help of youth advocate, Cynthia Brian,
