Believe. Forgive. Recieve.



unnamed (2)

So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.” (Mark 11:22-26 NKJV)

I felt lead to share this for such a time as this when we are all believing God for the miraculous, unexpected, unprecedented and seemingly impossible thing

How to Determine the Right Legal Entity For Your Business



which-business-entity

When you are starting a business, one of the most important decisions to be made is determining your business entity. As an example, when I started, I was a sole proprietor. And honestly, it was because I didn’t know what I didn’t know. I really thought it was a good idea to start a business, get an EIN number and start taking money. And this mistake, which is made by more than 50% of new business owners each year, can be costly. Today, we are an LLC and considering becoming an S-Corp.

Today, I teach my clients and students to consider three things in determining their business entity:

  1. Tax implications – what will your chosen entity mean when you file your taxes?
  2. Costs to form and maintain – what will it cost you to establish and maintain your chosen entity?
  3. Legal liability – what protec

Dr. Sanders on CCTV Discussing Ebola Links to Food Security & Lessons Learned



Ambassador Sanders on CCTV (China Cable Television) discusses current Ebola crisis and next steps that need to be addressed and focused on to stop the spread in the U.S. and West Africa. Sanders served as U.S. Ambassador in the Republic of Congo during its three Ebola outbreaks and notes lessons learned.

She stresses that in addition to the epidemiology issues, it is important for international agencies also to look simultaneously at food security issues as in the past Ebola is linked to a species jump from a carrier animal to human usually through consumption of a carrier animal :

Long Distance Over The Short Sprint



We currently live in a microwave society where most people want what they want right now.  This is partly due to a technologically advanced system driven by just pushing a button and having what you want accessible to you right now.  In the midst of this system we have become trapped in the mindset of getting from one thing to the next as quickly as possible and once the novelty of that thing wears off we are then off running to the next big then.

The paradox is that we actually miss life in this process.  Yes, life passes us right by and we don’t even realize we’re missing it.  We’re moving at such a fast pace to get to the next thing or event, to keep up with everyone else, that we end up missing the journey itself.  You could probably use the analogy “not seeing the forest for the trees

Why Are Cops So Frightened?



man in handcuffs

There is a pandemic.

The black motoring public needs to stop scaring white police officers. Incidents are being reported nationwide; white police officers are saying, “I was in fear for my safety”; code talk for, “I need to justify the excessive/deadly force I just used.”

As a retired Los Angeles Police Department sergeant, responsible for investigating allegations of police misconduct, I am familiar with the “canned responses” an officer can use when trying to justify an action that is unjustifiable. Phrases like, “I couldn’t see his hands”; The suspect was reaching for his waistband” or “The suspect was acting suspiciously” have been spoken in an attempt to avoid administrative discipline.

Whatever happened to police officers enforcing the “spirit of the law” rather than “the letter of

This Is It



Logo(ol)

I recently came upon this poem by James Broughton…

This is it, this is really it, this is all there is, and it’s perfect as it is. There’s nowhere to go but here.  There’s nothing here but now, there’s nothing now but this.  And this is it.  This is REALLY it.  This is all there is and it’s perfect as it is.

…and it started me to think about how often I hear people worry about things they can’t control, things that in the big scheme of things don’t really matter.  This is especially true for the parents of 12-and-under girls’ softball teams.  These parents seem to worry about everything they can think of- even things that have no bearing on their children’s play or play time.  Parents worry about what other parents are saying, whether or not other parents are happy being on the team, and

A Tale of Two Police Departments



Jody Westerby

See what happened when a white woman “interfered with an officer’s investigation”. No use of force. No Teaser. No arrest.

As a retired veteran sergeant of the Los Angeles Police Department, I have been a participant/observer in the “tale of two police departments”. That is, the way officers treat affluent community members versus citizens who are less fortunate. And believe me, it’s no secret among the rank and file; police officers’ act very differently when patrolling in West Los Angeles than they do in 77th division (south central L.A.). Much like the Washington D.C. story of Jody Westby and Dennis Stucky.

Jody Westby, an attorney who lives in an upscale neighborhood, recently came to the aid of a disabled, black man who was being racially profiled by police officers in Washington D..C

5 Tips for Experiencing Abundance in Your Life Because of Your Business



Two businessmen jumping and celebrating on the beach

With the statistics being what they are (89.70% of all non employer entities — solo-entrepreneurs and/or micro-business owners — earning less than $100,000 a year in their businesses) it’s no wonder why people are struggling with my mission:

To help uncompromising entrepreneurs and business owners experience financial and spiritual abundance in their lives because of their businesses.

Honestly, it’s a big mission and I am more committed to it than ever. But that doesn’t stop people who want more in their businesses from struggling with understanding exactly what this really looks like.

And, I get it. There was a time when I felt the same way. If you can imagine having more month than money, being tired, frustrated, unfocused, full of fear and complaining about any and everything, that was

Negativity Kills More Dreams Than Any Other Disease



ebola

In recent weeks the reality of Ebola has swept the globe. From the coasts of Africa to the great state of Texas, millions of people are on high alert for this deadly disease. While the threat is serious, there is something far more dangerous leaking in our midst. The air borne disease of negativity will kill million more dreams this year than Ebola will affect Americans.

A couple of years ago Hollywood studios released a blockbuster film that is currently up for several awards called Contagion. With heavy hitters like Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow and Laurence Fishburne as the main cast, they attempt to follow a web of infected individuals as a pandemic erupts across the world. This incredibly strong strand of flu virus that seems to originate from an animal spreads like wild-fire from Hong

referrals

Having been a business coach and consultant for more than 10 years, I’ve seen my share of marketing strategies. I have helped my clients and students to creatively configure the ones that will work best for them of the more than 60 ways you could be marketing your business at any time.

Despite all the ways you could be marketing, I believe that there are a few ways that are among the greatest of marketing strategies. The greatest ones in my opinion are the ones that come the most easy for you. In doing them, you don’t feel put out or out of your comfort zone.

Domestic Violence Can Happen to Anyone



Domestic-Violence-Awareness month

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. We sadly begin this October with the fatal shooting of the Mayor of the City of Bell Gardens, California, Daniel Crespo as a result of a purported domestic violence incident. Shock, sadness and disbelief were just a few of the emotions expressed when it was reported that Mayor Daniel Crespo, had been shot and killed by his wife and high school sweetheart, Lynette Crespo. As a retired Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) sergeant, I know the devastation domestic violence can bring to a family. As a first responder to these types of radio calls, I have witnessed families torn apart, sides chosen and victim denials. As a victim of domestic violence, at the hands of my [then] police officer [now] ex-husband, I know that anyone can become a victim.
