Southeast Asian coastal sovereign state
In late August, China's Ministry of Natural Resources released its new “standard map,” which includes not only Taiwan, but also parts of the maritime zones of the Philippines, Vietnam, Brunei, Indonesia, and Malaysia. It also includes land that China disputes with India—and even some Russian territory. To publicize the map and China's claims, Beijing launched a “national map awareness publicity week,” as it has for map releases in recent years. China's map release is an annual event, which can happen at any time. So why now? And what does the map tell us about Chinese foreign policy under Xi Jinping? To discuss this topic, host Bonnie Glaser is joined by Dr. Collin Koh who is Senior Fellow at the Institute of Defense and Strategic Studies at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, based in Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He has research interests on naval affairs in the Indo-Pacific, focusing on Southeast Asia.

Season 4 is here! Oral traditions are an important part of the cultural identity of many Southeast Asian countries, but their ephemeral state leaves them vulnerable for future generations. Malaysian artist-researcher duo Ambi Sun and Sha Roose join us to talk about the oracle deck they are creating “Tales & Oracles of Eleven - Mythology from Southeast Asia”. The oracle deck features 44 legends from 11 Southeast Asian countries including Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, East Timor (Timor Leste), and Vietnam. By turning the folktales we grew up hearing from our parents, grandparents, and cultural elders, the duo hopes to ensure these tales are not lost or forgotten over time. Sun tells us about the biases she has faced as an Asian female artist, while Sha talks about her experience living with Spinal Muscular Atrophy.

Being specific and targeting your ideal audience can promise you better and higher ticket sales. Terence Tam is a former University Lecturer who now has a Marketing Agency that specializes in generating leads for gurus and coaches to sell high-ticket offers. Keep your ears open and listen to Terence's magic as he talks about how you can generate high ticket sales without losing more money and stressing out yourself. He also shares the promising effects of ‘less is more' by focusing more on your target audience. Check out these episode highlights: 01:42 - Terence's ideal client: I do claim high-level coaches with high ticket offers, and they normally sell using a one-to-many platform like webinars, challenges, workshops, and the like. 02:05 - The problem he helps solve: The main problem I solve for them is that most of the events right now are not scalable, right? They can't get enough people to their events. 02:37 - The symptoms of the problem: Getting not enough numbers, or they're actually losing money from their events, which is really sucky, right? Or they're getting people who are not the right fit for their events, and they are trying so hard to sell them that, "Hey, this is right for you." 04:25 - Clients' common mistakes before consulting Terence: They think they need to do more ads, videos, courses, and events. But when you take a strategic approach, you actually can do less and achieve more. 06:03 - Terence's Valuable Free Action (VFA): A top tip I would give them is that they need to just focus on stripping away stuff, like I just mentioned, and focusing on really the ideal customer that they really want to target. 07:07 - Terence's Valuable Free Resource (VFR): Want to learn how to authentically and confidently scale up your business?
