Episode 84: Finding your Authentic Voice, with Randall Kenneth Jones of MindZoo by Avocet Communications
Author, speaker, and creative Randall Kenneth Jones has built a marketing and public relations portfolio that includes such respected household names as TJMaxx, Pier 1, Walgreens, Carter’s, GEICO, Sears, The Washington Post & The Wall Street Journal.
After Jones’ 2010 move from Washington, D.C., to Naples, Florida, the award-winning writer & creative director approached the Naples Daily News and offered to write an independent newspaper column—a blend of personal & professional development. For the next few years, the Jones personally arranged to conduct over 100 best-practices interviews. His subjects included Pat Benatar, Brian Boitano, Carl Edwards, Jeffrey Hayzlett, Shirley Jones, Sonny Jurgensen, Sue Monk Kidd, Hoda Kotb, Colin Mochrie, Suze Orman, General Barry McCaffrey, Cynthia Rhodes, Tommy Tune, Vanessa Williams and many more.
With a Foreword by Peggy Post (The Emily Post Institute) and an Introduction by Erin Brockovich, Jones’ subsequent book, ‘Show Me: Celebrities, BusinessTycoons, Rock Stars, Journalists, Humanitarians, Attack Bunnies & More!’ was published in late 2016.
Having spent most of his life as an actor and improviser, Jones is happiest before an audience. His favorite stage roles include: The Monster/Young Frankenstein, Professor Callahan/Legally Blonde, Roger DeBris/The Producers, Bottom/A Midsummer Night’s Dream and a gender-bending Jane Hudson in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? For Jones, time on stage is a blissful extension of the creativity-fueled lifestyle he is so blessed to enjoy.
