FOR DUMMIES: The Podcast

Apr 20, 2020

Since everyone’s doing their part by staying at home, it’s giving us all time to work on ourselves and our relationships.  So, we here at “For Dummies: The Podcast” thought it would be a good idea to revisit some of the episodes that can help us do just that.  In times like these – especially if you’ve experienced a job loss – our self-esteem can really take a hit.  We’ve got you covered with this episode of “Self-esteem For Dummies.”  

Having healthy self-esteem means liking yourself, holding yourself in high regard. You might be saying to yourself “What's the big deal, that’s easy,” but if you are, you’re fooling yourself.  Self-esteem is a big problem, especially among younger people, and especially in the social media age. This week host, Eric Martsolf, is diving into “Self-Esteem For Dummies” by Vivian Harte and S. Renee Smith. Both women are experts in assertiveness and maximizing human performance.

With over 3500 episodes of television under his belt, Mr. Martsolf has been providing "love in the afternoon" for NBC Daytime for the last 17 years. His portrayals of Ethan Winthrop on "Passions" and currently Brady Black on "Days of our Lives" have resulted in numerous industry accolades. He made daytime history in 2014 by being the first actor ever to win an Emmy in the Best Supporting Actor category for "Days of our Lives." His television credits expand into primetime (Extant, NCIS, Rizzoli & Isles), and his musical theatre repertoire consists of over 40 productions, including his critically acclaimed role as the Pharaoh in the Osmond Broadway Tour of "Joseph." Fans of the DC Universe will most notably recognize him as Justice League member and futuristic hero Booster Goldfrom the series Smallville.
