1. HOST JACKIE TANTILLO - "It was As Though She Waved Her Magic Wand" With Guest Etiquette Consultant Kristi Spencer 29:35

Family dinners and treating each other with respect was always the family motto.  Both Kristi and her mother, Carla grew up in Kansas on a farm in a very small town. 

Kristi was so inspired by the work of Emily Post, that she founded “the Polite Company” where she enjoys helping people of all ages become aware of the impression they make on coworkers, friends and family. For Kristi, it’s inspiring to see  her clients/students feel more confident once they have a few tools to help them in professional and personal settings.  Many of her students are first generation college attendees seeking to accomplish what’s never been attainable in their family’s history.

Emily Post wrote her very first book on etiquette in 1922 as a 5o year old divorced mother. Her guidelines incorporate the belief that “etiquette has nothing to do with your last name, it has nothing to do with where you’re from, it has nothing to do with how much money you have , it has everything to do with how you treat other people.  And learning manners and etiquette costs $0.00.”

They’ve released  the 100th Centennial version of Ms. Post’s book on etiquette  with the inclusion of technology and social media.

Kristi shares many wonderful stories of her relationship with her mother and all that her mother has taught her throughout her life. 

And some advice Kristi gives is “being polite doesn’t mean you have to be a door mat!

Hope you enjoy the listen.
