Mission Statement

CMA Communication Consultants seek to enhance the communication competencies of individuals interacting in various professional and social contexts to achieve goals for communicating. Two special areas are leadership and small groups. The company’s representative will provide professional consulting, coaching, and communication competency training as needed. 

CMA Communication Consultants’ mission statement highlights the premise that communication is a learned behavior. When human beings want to transmit information, ideas, values, and emotions, they use verbal symbols--words, and nonverbal cues-- such as eye contact. One is not born with the competencies to use words and nonverbal cues when interacting with others to reach goals for communicating.

Let’s face it, communication competencies can be learned through a variety of channels such as parents, academic settings, and consulting and training companies.  Whether one needs to enhance competencies as a leader or follower interacting (1) in one-on-one situations, (2) as a small group member, (3) as an organizational employee, and (4) as a voice in the mass communication and technology arenas, CMA Communication Consultants’ representatives are prepared to provide the consulting, coaching, and training opportunities.

Ted has a successful practice as a counselor. He’s physically attractive, cultured, and a caring soul. He’s also lonely and eager to find love. When blind dates fizzle out, he decides to give online dating a try.

Each new encounter creates excitement and hopefulness. Online dating is filled with sweet Geminis, adventurous Libras, and gorgeous Aries. Ted enjoys meeting these bright women. But behind the sunny online profiles, some of them reveal themselves as not a match for him by being distant, bitter, and hurt. But among the women who date for fun or to escape memories of past relationships, can he find the woman who can be that special one in his life?

Divided into a series of short chapters, 13 Zodiac Women is also a serious meditation on life, sexuality, relationships, and how flawed humans struggle to find a connection. Ted, like all of us, has to pick up the pieces and try again and again, holding fast to the belief that he will find his soulmate.

Signing on to an online dating service takes guts and determination. Women and men do it to break the cycle of loneliness, boredom, or hurt over a love gone astray. Sunset99 is lured by the hype of making new friends, finding romance, enjoying sex again, and even tying the marriage knot. She decided that an online dating service may fill the gap in her life. So, she paid the fee and filled in the psychological and physiological data describing herself, what she liked and disliked and uploaded a recent photo. There she was, out there in cyber land hoping to catch "the right fish in the sea of prospective fishes." Each chapter of the book tells the story of a man attracted to Sunset99. The Zodiac signs offer readers an understanding of the men's characteristics. With honesty, trust, and hopefulness, Sunset99 enters into these relational meetings. Through selfdisclosure, she comes to know who these men are.
