Blanca Cobb: Body Language Expert
Blanca and I met almost 5 years ago after she had started a trendy little t-shirt company and was looking for help with her marketing and social media. It was also that same summer when the John Edwards trial was happening and Blanca found herself in the center of it all being interviewed about John’s body language. And the rest, as they say, is history and Blanca now is sought out to speak on all things body language and other communication skills, has appeared on Dr. Oz, the Today Show, published articles in Cosmo, Real Simple and is found several times a week on WFMY as a contributing editor for them. If that’s not enough, she’s a mom to two and she’s also one of my closest friends and whenever she’s around you can bet there will be plenty of laughs.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, no I don’t get unnerved thinking she’s reading my body language… first of all, I have nothing to hide and everyone needs a day off, right?!
What is one thing that you can’t start your day without?
Gratitude – a quick reminder that I have a lot to be grateful for no matter what I gotta face in the day. Helps me focus on the positive and see solutions that I didn’t see before.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?
Italy. I’d travel to Italy. Italy is a country of romance. And I want to be surrounded by love. Love of people, culture, music, lifestyle, food. I want more love in my life and so do you.
What is your strongest personal quality?
I’m intuitive. And this means I pick up on subtleties in how people are feeling.
What is your profession and why did you choose it?
I’m all about relationships. Relationships with yourself and others. Relationships drive your quality of life. As a body language expert, behavior analyst and media personality, I talk about what matters in relationships – what you say, how you say it and the ways you show it.
