About Author Rick Polson


 Rick  Polson


Communications is an art that I have taken to heart since high school. After helping to set up and participate in an on-campus radio station, I went on to study broadcast communications, receiving a Bachelor’s degree from Curry College. Since then, I have held a wide range of positions in the fields of Marketing, Advertising and Public Relations.

I was an Account Executive at several broadcast facilities in Ann Arbor, Michigan; Boston, Massachusetts; and Tampa Bay, Florida – selling, writing, and producing ads for numerous industries. I also was an on-air participant in some locations. As a Public Relations Manager for an international computer product manufacturer and distributor, I was deeply involved in branding global product lines. I also have advertising agency experience, involved with all aspects of client relations and placement of marketing programs.

Throughout my career, I have held high expectations for my staff and myself. It is important that everyone is properly trained in their focuses, whether sales, customer service, advertising or marketing. Communication is also important to encourage a continual flow of information to build confidence in the company and staff.

I mastered several computer programs, including Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher), Sales Tools (ACT, Goldmine), and social media applications (Facebook, Twitter).

So, you just started a business

    This compelling new book by Rick Polson – ”Making a Superstar Company” – gives new business owners a way to understand the different types of marketing and advertising vehicles available to them. It is written in a style where “you’re sharing a cup of coffee or meal” with the author while he tells you how these things work. There are many historic references and examples to give the reader an understanding of newspaper, radio, cable/TV and the Internet just to name a few.

            As the author says, ”Most small business owners are experts in retail, restaurants, service companies like air conditioning or plumbing, but most have no real grasp on how to gain a customer base and build a business. That’s why I wrote the book. To help them grow and be successful.”

            He goes on to tell us that there are plenty of examples in each chapter that the reader can put into place immediately and grow their business successfully. If read a chapter or two at a time, the new business owner can build their organization in steps and be successful. It is also a benefit for business owners of any current business as a review of new ideas.

            The book is available at many eBook channels like Amazon, BarnesandNoble.com, ebookstore.sony.com, Smashwords.com and many more. You can also contact Rick at bigrickbook@yahoo.com. It will be a paperback in the spring.

The Nancy Ferrari Show features Dr. Michael Nuccitelli to discuss Cleveland Kidnapping Suspect, Dark Psychology and Profile of the Malignant Sociopath

The Nancy Ferrari Show, airing live on Monday, 9:00 am PT/12:00 pm ET will dedicate its show to the three young women rescued in Cleveland, Ohio.  On May 6, 2013, the Dark Psychology and news of Cleveland kidnapping suspect, Ariel Castro, and his three captive victims being rescued shocked the nation. It is now one week later and the brave women are reunited with their family after being held captive and tortured for over a decade.    As many of Americans try to make sense of such a horrific crime, I have called upon my expert, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli, who is a New York State licensed psychologist, certified forensic consultant and author of the Information Age Forensics construct, iPredator & theoretical criminology construct, Dark Psychology.  Dr. Nuccitelli will discuss the profile and motivations of the alleged kidnapper, as well as discuss a sub tenet of his criminological construct he has termed the Malignant Sociopath and suspects the alleged kidnapping may fit this profile.

As a forensic psychologist, Dr. Nuccitelli is author of the new theoretical criminology construct called Dark Psychology along with its sub-tenet termed, Malignant Sociopath. A brief definition of each is as follows:

Malignant Sociopathy: A sub-tenet of Dark Psychology, Malignant Sociopathy is defined as a rare and extreme form of the classic definition of the Sociopath. A Malignant Sociopath is a male or female who exhibits the extreme form of Sociopathy, does not suffer from an acute psychiatric mental illness, is predominantly driven by the need for absolute power and control and views the enslavement of their victim(s) as a priori as opposed to taking their life, engaging in sexual and/or violent victimization, stealing their valuables or causing them psychological distress.

The current accepted definition of a Sociopath is a personality disordered person that exhibits patterned behavior similar Antisocial Personality Disorder, often criminal or deviant, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience. The Sociopath also exhibits amoral behavior, fails to learn from his/her experiences, lacks the ability to establish meaningful personal relationships, extremely egocentric and narcissistic and frequently engages in fantasizing about wanting to victimize, torture and enslave a targeted victim(s). The Malignant Sociopath is the severe form of the sociopathy, extremely rare and is fixated upon absolute domination, control and enslavement of their victim(s).

Note to Reader: For purposes of fully understanding the Dark Psychology and sub-tenet of Malignant Sociopathy, Dr. Nuccitelli views the profiles of the Psychopath and Sociopath as synonymous with slight variation in modus operandi and subjective processing systems. Under his interpretation, the Psychopath tends to be more isolative, a loner and less likely to intrinsically value social relationships.

The Psychopath can either be isolative, a loner and less likely to intrinsically value social relationships or behave in the opposite manner, but still have these internal perceptions. The other variation different from the Sociopath is that the Psychopath experiences a delusional, dissociative or severely disturbed worldview that fuels his/her victimization pursuits.

Dark Psychology is the study of the human condition as it relates to the psychological nature of people to prey upon others. All of humanity has this potential to victimize other humans & living creatures. While many restrain or sublimate this tendency, some act upon these impulses. Dark Psychology seeks to understand those thoughts, feelings and perceptions that lead to human predatory behavior. Dark Psychology assumes that this production is purposive and has some rational, goal-oriented motivation 99% of the time. The remaining 1%, under Dark Psychology, is the brutal victimization of others without purposive intent or reasonably defined by evolutionary science or religious dogma.
