Since our launch in 2008, we’ve been amazed by the outpouring of generosity and hope from the ever-growing SU2C community. You’ve shared your stories. You’ve launched stars in honor of loved ones. You’ve sent letters to Congress. You’ve spread the word to friends and family. You joined us for our second, commercial-free telecast on September 10, 2010 and, most importantly, pledged over $80 million to accelerate ground-breaking research and bring new treatments to patients as quickly as possible.

We’ve all come together — from patients to clinicians, from advocates to lawmakers, from children to teenagers to parents and parents of parents — in support of one cause: finding a cure for cancer. We can’t thank you enough for making Stand Up To Cancer what it is today. This is where the end of cancer begins

NicodermCQ / Nicorette Introduce Pledge to Quit Smoking Program

NicodermCQ / Nicorette Introduce New Pledge To Quit Program at GBK Luxury Gifting Suite to Help Support TabaccoFreeKids.org

NicodermCQs Jason Andre explains their new pledge program and how they are helping GBK Gifting Suites help people and kids, quit smoking.

As someone that has recently stopped smoking, I can attest to how tough it can be.

I quit with every other puff and finally it took. I really should have tried NicodermCQ or Nicorette, but I was too stubborn and it cost me so much quality time with my lungs.

Since quitting I have gotten rid of my smokers cough, I feel better, taste more, am in better shape and have lost over 15 pounds. Yes that is right lost pounds! I quit to save my health so I am eating healthier also.

If you are still smoking, make a pledge to stop. I know it is tough, but it is worth it and I believe that the patch and gum might just be what you need to be successful – JW

NicodermCQ

What is a nicotine patch?

To some people, the toughest part of quitting is dealing with the nicotine cravings that come with it. One way to overcome the need for nicotine is to stop smoking but partially replace

the nicotine that you would have had from smoking. As your body adapts to having less, you will experience the urge to smoke less often. Eventually, you can completely stop supplying your body with nicotine. This is the idea behind Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT).

Patches like NicoDerm CQ are just one form of Nicotine Replacement Therapy. They look like large adhesive bandages and stick onto the skin in the same way. The sticky side of the patch contains a layer of nicotine. While you wear the patch, nicotine passes through the skin into your blood. This delivers nicotine in a steady stream, helps reduce the nicotine cravings that come from quitting and making it easier for you to use your willpower to quit smoking.

Unlike other patches, NicoDerm CQ features Time Release SmartControl Technology so it acts fast and lasts long to help control your cravings and double your chances of quitting*. And since it’s a thin, clear patch, it’s easy to wear discreetly.

Nicorette Gum

How Nicorette® Gum Works

It is difficult when you’re quitting and all you can think about is your next
cigarette. Nicorette Gum® helps calm your withdrawal symptoms when you’re
trying to quit. That’s because, when you stop smoking, the sudden removal of
nicotine from your system lowers your dopamine levels, making you feel
moody and irritable.

Nicorette Gum provides a controlled amount of nicotine to your system at a slower, less intense pace than cigarettes and without the toxins in cigarette

smoke. It’s a temporary therapeutic aid that reduces withdrawal symptoms and helps you quit smoking.

Your body gradually adjusts to having less nicotine until you no longer need any. By helping to relieve cravings, Nicorette lets you focus on disrupting the patterns that link cigarettes to so many of your daily activities.

Winning the Fight Against the World’s Leading Cause
of Preventable Death

The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids is a leading force in the fight to reduce tobacco use and its deadly toll in the United States and around the world. Our vision: A future free of the death and disease caused by tobacco.

We work to save lives by advocating for public policies that prevent kids from smoking, help smokers quit and protect everyone from secondhand smoke.

How We Fight Tobacco

To achieve our mission, we:

  • Promote public policies proven to reduce tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke. These include higher tobacco taxes, comprehensive smoke-free laws, well-funded tobacco prevention and stop-smoking programs, and tough regulation of tobacco products and marketing.
  • Expose and counter tobacco industry efforts to market to children and mislead the public.
  • Strengthen tobacco control efforts in the United States and worldwide by providing support and information to our many partners.
  • Mobilize organizations and individuals to join the fight against tobacco.
  • Empower a tobacco-free generation by fostering youth leadership and activism.
  • Inform the public, policy makers and the media about tobacco’s devastating consequences and the effectiveness of the policies we support.

Saving Lives in the U.S. and Around the World

In the United States, we advocate at the national, state and local levels for the proven policies that reduce tobacco use and save lives.

Internationally, the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids supports governments and non-governmental organizations in promoting and implementing these policies. We are a partner in the Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use, which focuses on low- and middle-income countries where more than 80 percent of tobacco-related deaths will occur in the coming decades.

While we have made enormous progress in the United States, tobacco still kills more than 400,000 Americans every year. The worldwide death toll is at more than five million a year and climbing. With your support, we can win the fight against the world’s leading cause of preventable death.

Created in 1996, the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that accepts no government or tobacco industry funding. We rely on contributions from individuals, philanthropic foundations, corporations and other non-profit organizations.

Danielle Rios brings Interior Design From the Runway to GBK Oscar Gift Suite

Danielle Rios brings Interior Design From the Runway to GBK Academy Awards Gifting Suite

DanielleRiosImageSm

Interior Designer Danielle Rios takes inspiration from Alexander McQueen, worn by Jessica Chastain and Nicole Kidman and Anne Hathaway’s Valentino for the design of GBK’s 2013 Oscar Luxury Lounge.

Going to the many gifting suites in Los Angeles you will find that many are held in the some of the hottest and best known hotels in Hollywood and Beverly Hills. GBK is no different, except that GBK always goes one step further and does a complete design concept for each event.

It is always exciting to walk in to see what wonderful design concept they have come up with for each event and this year for the Academy Awards I was lucky enough to find out who was designing.

The following was my conversation with Danielle Rios designer and Nadine Jolson part of GBK PR all about the show and the incredible designs based on exquisite gowns from Valentino and Alexander McQueen, for this year.JW

pic daneille rios design conceptsThe Design

From Runways to Red Carpets to Oscar Lounges, Rios will showcase fashion-influenced vignettes, styled with an elegant, edgy display of furnishings and decorative touches at the lounge for Nominees and Presenters.  The celebrity-gifting event will be held at the Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles on Friday February 21st and Saturday February 22nd from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“I believe that there is always the possibility for style and unexpected glamour,” says Rios, “I am thrilled and honored to be working with the leader in luxury gift lounges, GBK.” – Danielle Rios

Rios, a former Tadashi model, takes her experience from the runway to interior design for high-end residential, hospitality and commercial designs. By infusing her knowledge and expertise from both worlds, Rios established a unique trademark in creating fashionable interiors. The mixing of fashion sensibilities and interior design is a collective approach that she takes with every job.

“Time-honored style and fresh avant-garde elements create dynamic groupings and spaces,” Rios says.  A modernist at heart, Rios adds a traditional twist into her designs.

Contributing manufactures and contractors are: Elitis wall coverings and Bergamo and Rubelli fabric by Donghia Inc., Gaetano fabric by Elan Collections, Leather by Moore & Giles Inc., Nolita Sofa from the Magni Collection, Kailash Table by Chista, Grand Facet by Gary Hutton, Sophia Floor Lamp by Fuse Lighting, Reborn Antiques, Ryan Gallery, and John Jory LLC. s

Rios received her Bachelors of Science for Architectural Interior Design from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. She is a registered Interior Designer and Associate for AIA in the state of Nevada and has offices in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

Danielle Rios 02 shDanielle Rios

Danielle’s high expectations and personal drive have launched her into an exciting venture of design and construction development. Working on multi-million dollar estates, commercial properties and collaborating with Clientele has proven to be a successful endeavor. Since the commencement of her business, the focus has been on predominately high-end residential, hospitality and commercial design. This past year however, Danielle has expanded her creativity to antique furniture importation and renovation. Creating unique pieces into timeless furniture with an updated style and sense of elegance has expanded her savvy expertise in design.

Prior to Danielle creating her own business, her formative years were rooted in hospitality design. She worked and cultivated her skill for two leading design firms in Las Vegas for six years. Soon after, those connections led to a joint design venture that launched luxury international hospitality projects. It was during those formative years that she realized that her enthusiasm for design was geared around creating alluring, exciting spaces and adjusting with an ever-changing world.

Danielle Rios was born in Puerto Rico. She received her Bachelors of Science for Architectural Interior Design from the University of Nevada Las Vegas and is a registered Interior Designer in the state of Nevada. Danielle is currently operating out of Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

Devon Blaine Audio Interview on her life, career, PR, promotion, winning publicist of the year and crisis management ►Right Click and “Save Link As” to Download File◄

NOTE: There was one question, on the recording that was asked,but somehow did not get recorded. The question was about women having to work harder to build a business. Devon answered that she did not believe that to be true….. Listen to the audio to hear her full answer.

One of the things I like about what I do is meeting and working with public relations professionals. I have been blessed to work with some big names and many smaller companies.

The other side of that coin is that I have also worked with many companies that call themselves professionals, but only seem to be playing at it. Public relations, I have found, can rarely be faked. They say even a blind squirrel can occasionally find a nut or two, but I have rarely seen a bad PR firm pull off a successful event or project.

What I have seen is that promotion is a tricky game and that you can never be sure that any effort will deliver a result, but you can be assured that no action or a half hearted stab at it will result in failure .

So when I get to work with firms like The Blaine Group, it just makes my day and my life easier. They are professionals that do what they say and say what they do and they work at under-promising and over-delivering, not the other way around.

I believe I have been blessed to know and work with people like Devon and her amazing staff and believe that if you are serious about your product, project, service or business, that you should seriously consider The Blaine Group or a firm that can and will deliver. – JW

Juliet Wright – Everything is My Fault – A Journey Through Co-Dependency

Juliet Wright Everything is My FaultJuliet Wright Everything is My Fault – A Journey Through Co-Dependency

Juliet Wright is a speaker, author, musician, teacher and long sufferer of the pain of the disease of codependency.

Juliet’s journey with codependency began as a young child when addiction invaded her family. In this book, she observes her codependency as it weaves its way through her relationships and behavior patterns. Join us as she shares her story, as well as the program of recovery that is helping so many heal.

Disclaimer: Juliet and I have known each other for over 15 years. She came to my wedding. I have kept up with her over the years here and there, and I bust out her music from time to time, as besides, now being a new author, she has two music albums she produced. So I am biased because I love and care for Juliet.

On the other hand, I see a lot of books, as you might imagine and many are not good. This one is one of the good ones.

I met Juliet through my wife as they are good friends. My wife used to hang out with Juliet’s husband’s top 40 band and they were all very close, good friends. We still get together and watch some of the spin off bands occasionally.

Juliet and her husband lived in the Hollywood hills and had played just about every venue in Hollywood and southern California. They were busy and popular and striving hard to have success in the very tough, music industry that is Hollywood. They lived in a house that I was told was the practice pad for a band called Journey in the early days.

Juliet and her husband were well liked and a favorite couple amongst the group, but we did not know the turmoil that was happening with Juliet. A family history of mental and substance abuse was leading Juliet in directions, thoughts and patterns that were not good for her.

I heard about the book and I know Juliet as the creative type so I was not surprised that she wrote a book, but when I read the title, I got it right away. This is a great look into what causes codependency, enabling and how we sabotage ourselves as we look outside ourselves for answers that can only come from within us. I saw myself in this book many times.

Listen in to this interview where I get a chance to sit down with an old friend and dig into her healing, how her problems came about and how by using some proven techniques and C0-Dependents Anonymous (CoDa) her life was changed to one of gratitude and fulfillment. 

Juliet went on to get her Masters and is now a teacher. I am very happy for her and the new journey she is on and I know, KNOW this book will help many, many people get on the right path in their own lives – JW

Juliet A. Wright

Juliet is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, author, and teacher who was born and raised in Central Vermont.

Juliet spent much of her young life as an equestrian and was always active in music and theatre. She attended Interlochen Arts Academy from 1979-1982, where she studied piano, music composition, theatre, and dance.

Juliet graduated from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida, in 1986 with a degree in Studio Music and Jazz Guitar Performance.

After leaving Miami, Juliet moved to Burlington, Vermont, to pursue her career as a jazz guitarist. She moved to Los Angeles in 1987, where she pursued her career as a guitarist and performer of pop and rock music. For the next 13 years, she made her living singing, and playing the guitar, piano, and saxophone in clubs and at private functions all over California.

In 1997, a year after she was married to an old friend and fellow mucian, she began teaching general vocal music for the Los Angeles Unified School District. Juliet divorced in 2004 and moved back to Vermont, in 2007, where she currently lives.

Juliete writes books and composes and records her own music. She also teaches stringed instruments to elementary school students in a nearby Massachusetts school district. Her hobbies include writing and recording music, oil painting, knitting, and nurturing all the baby trees she has planted on her property.

Juliet is a devout Quaker and is active in her Quaker Meeting. Codependency recovery is very important to Juliet, and she donates much of her time giving back to CoDA.

book juliet wright everything is my faultEverything is my fault

One Woman’s Journey Through Codependency

Juliet Wright has spent her whole life living wth the disease of Codependency.

She has been actively working the Recovery Program which is documented in her first book Everything is My Fault. Seven years of work that has lead her to a much happier life.

This book is her fearless moral inventory, step 4 of the 12 step process, which she originally wrote as part of her journey to heal herself from debilitating and confining behaviors.

She then went through the 12 step program and along with her sponsor and therapist she developed processes and recovery tools using many proven techniques that changed her life.

This book is Juliet sharing her story, but more importantly, the sharing of the processes, tools, programs and techniques that helped her dig into her own past, see past the hurt, anger and fear and then take the steps toward recovery, gratitude, self awareness, self esteem and the inner tranquility that we all deserve. – JW

From Amazon

Through her personal journey, Juliet has illustrated in a most meaningful way, the pervasive nature of codependency, her healing through the 12 Step program of CoDa, and her implementation of those teachings into her life. This is a must read for anyone who has discovered how codependency has detrimentally affected their relationships and their lives. This book can serve as a guide for those seeking their own healing process with the wonderful result of discovering themselves in ways which could not have been imagined.

Caroll Fowler, M.A., MFT, previous Director of the Family Program at Sequoia Center and CoFounder of the drug/alcohol residential program in Kenya, ViFukoFuko Recovery Center.

I am so moved to be able to write a response to Juliet A. Wright’s searing self-help memoir, Everything is my Fault: One Woman’s Journey through Codependency. Reading her story, I found myself repeating, she has such courage and insight: this book represents an intimate act of healing for her and potentially, for so many other readers, including myself. Surely, this is a profound testament about how a former Miss Perfect (and a wonderful composer and singer and guitarist) has learned to love herself. Join Juliet in this profound inner journey of hope and healing.

Juliet Wright’s Music

Fearless Moral Inventory

This Album is a companion CD to my Book, “Everything Is My Fault.” The lyrics are sprinkled throughout the book. I wrote this music to help me heal. I hope that anyone who hears it will find comfort and healing. May it inspire the listener to write some songs of their own for their own recovery.

Juliet Wright BelovedBeloved

Juliet played professionally in Top 40 and casuals bands for several years before hitting the coffee house scene with her duo White River and their self titled cd. After the break up of her duo, Juliet ventured into the wonderful world of teaching.

She teaches music to elementary age students in the San Fernando Valley. Although she finds teaching very rewarding, her first love is writing and performing her own music. Her background is in jazz, but her love of rock, folk, pop and religious music has influenced her songwriting that has resulted in the creation, evolution and birth of her new cd Beloved.

Her poetic lyrics, beautiful melodies and tasty chord changes lead the listener through her most recent and very personal journeys, the destination being this intriguing, thought provoking music.

Duke Long on Using Social Media in Commercial Real Estate

Takes some time to chat with us about the CRE industry and social media’s role now and in the future.

Duke Long Audio Interview Use of Social Media in the CRE Industry – To hear this interview [CLICK HERE]

I have been following Duke Long and his blog for a few years now. I was Googling Commercial Real Estate sites and found a list of the top 25 social media people in the industry.

I looked up and down the list and searched it for my name. I found my co-partner on my CREPIG site and many of my site members, but not my name.

I was disappointed and made a mental note to make sure that this Duke guy recognized me and put me on the list. Well the list was done so I put myself on it in the comments section.

Duke wrote back saying essentially cool man… No prob. I kept a keen eye on his lists since then and I have rarely made any of them.

Duke and I have spoken several times over the years and we finally got to meet each other and hang out at NAR together. We actually had a great time hanging out and got to talk at length about many subjects.

Duke is going where most other CRE professionals do not dare with social media and blogging and he does have an attitude, which he share via his blog…. Listen in as we take a moment to chat about the industry and new media challenges. – JW

book zero to zillionaire chellie campbellZero To Zillionaire

Zero to Zillionaire is a scale. We are all on that scale somewhere-some of us are drowning near Zero and some of us are riding the crest of the Zillionaire wave. Why is that?

Why do some people sink to the bottom of the ocean, some people float to the peak at the top, and the majority tread water in the middle? After accident of birth places a person somewhere on the scale, what is it that makes some stay where they were born, and others rise on the scale? Or fall off the scale? Why do a lot of wealthy people have no spirit and why are a lot of spiritual people are broke?

This book will help you understand your place on the scale and how to move up the food chain. You will learn how to implement the 8 successful steps:

  • Daily routines change your mindset and your future
  • Figure out what you really want
  • Take action-how to bring home the zillions
  • Surround yourself with people who make you rich and happy
  • Keep score in the money game
  • Your zillionaire time frame starts now
  • Make success out of failure
  • Lighten up-the whole idea is to have a great life!

You can qualify for Zillionaire status, with wealth in your work, happiness in your home, and a balance between the two. Follow these principles and you will have a balanced checkbook, a balanced schedule, a balanced spirit, and a balanced life.

You can be a Zillionaire: someone who has a zillion dreams, is taking a zillion actions to make them come true, makes as many zillions of dollars as possible, has a zillion friends, is doing a zillion good deeds, taking a zillion naps and a zillion vacations, and having a zillion adventures in a long, fun-filled life!

book the wealthy spirit chellie campbellThe Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction

Many people spend their lives searching for the means to acquire tremendous financial wealth. They look to external resources to give them what they want, and are ultimately disappointed when their dreams don’t turn out the way they had planned. They either become incredibly wealthy at the expense of their spiritual well being, family, and friends, or they never acquire the riches they’ve aspired to, and in their disappointment, they discover they’ve lost all sense of self-worth.

The Wealthy Spirit is the only book that offers an approach to achieving both spiritual and financial wealth. Through a series of daily affirmations that focus on the reader’s internal strength and capacity for change, this book will set them on a path toward personal enlightenment and wealth in body, mind, and spirit.

Using a day-to-day approach, readers will learn six keys:

  1. Think positive. Like mind over matter, mind over money begins with believing you deserve it and can get it.
  2. Send out ships. You can wait for your ship to come in, but if you don’t send any out, it’s going to be a long wait.
  3. Count your money. Money is a game and you have to know the score. The money score will tell you how well you’re doing at steps one and two.
  4. Swim with dolphins. Being “in the swim” will depend largely on who you’re swimming with. Find “your people” and avoid sharks.
  5. Survive the storms. You must weather interior storms as well as exterior ones. Persistence is key.
  6. Seek balance and enlightenment. Only from their perspective will you know when you have “enough.”

The Wealthy Spirit offers readers peace of mind to help them build financial muscle and a successful, stress-free life.

Ray Carter CEO of StemTech on Their Success with Direct Sales

Ray C. Carter Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of StemTech International

Talks to us about their breakthrough product that increases your bodies natural release of the repairative adult stem cells and the business model they have chosen to allow everyone to share the product and financial rewards.

Ray Carter Audio Interview on Stem Cell Breakthrough and How they are using Direct Sales to Share and Promote their products ►Right Click and “Save Link As” to Download File◄

I am very lucky and grateful for the things I get to do. Interviewing celebrities, authors, thought leaders and professionals about all kinds of interesting subjects.

One of my favorite things is stuff. I love cool stuff and I started an Innovative Products page to highlight some of the great products I come across.

I see many types of products through traditional means of distribution and also direct sales channels of distribution. If I love a product I do not care how it is distributed, I just want to know how I can get it.

I have had some success at network marketing in the past and I happen to really love and embrace that channel of distribution. Given the right management, a solid compensation plan for distributors and a really great product and you have a solid way for manufacturers to get their product out into the market place with the best advertising available “Word of Mouth”.

It is also great for the client as they get to deal with real people not corporations when it comes to getting service also a client can, by sharing the product, they love, make some money.

There is also the opportunity to leverage others that want to build a business in order to make even more money and possible residual cashflow.

blah, blah, blah… I know many of you have heard this before and will take me to task about ponzi schemes. You will argue that only those at the top make money. I get it and you will find that ponsi schemes do exist and in a ponsi scheme scenario you would be right about the people at the top, but they are illegal.

There are thousands of legitimate network marketing companies and you can usually check them out by making sure they are members of groups like the Direct Selling Association (DSA) as these companies have proved their legitimacy.

OK so all that said, I wanted to introduce everyone to a product, I believe is incredibly innovative and, more importantly, relevant to everyone who cares about their health and quality of life.

StemTech makes a a product that has been proven, through studies, to support and increase naturally, the number of adult stem cells your body produces. I will not go into the science here, but if you know anything about stem cell research, you will know that stem cells have become one of the most significant and revolutionary health breakthrough technologies today and in the future.

Click here to listen to the Christian Drapeau the Chief Science Officer and Co-Founder, as he speaks to the incredible science behind this product and listen to the audio above to find out more about the history and business side of this story.

This story will probably change your life or the life of someone you love in more that one way. It can be your ticket to good health and to financial freedom.JW

Due to factors such as age, stress, pollution and poor diet, there is a reduction in the release and activity of adult stem cells, which may lead to a decline in the natural ability of your body to maintain optimal health. Stemtech’s clinically studied stem cell nutrition line of products is designed to help support three most important aspects of stem cell physiology: the release, circulation and migrations of stem cells.

Stemtech’s products do not contain stem cells. They are composed of natural botanicals and other ingredients that have been clinically documented to support the performance of your own stem cells.

Stemtech’s line of adult stem cell nutrition products for humans includes SE2®, StemFlo®, StemSport®, ST-5 with MigraStem and DermaStem®. These products are designed synergistically, to provide you with the maximum results when taken together throughout your day. Don’t be fooled by imitators, Stemtech pioneered this exciting new supplement category, and is the only company with a full line of products that are clinically shown to support the body’s natural renewal system.

For animals, Stemtech has created StemPets® and StemEquine®. These products are created with the same high-quality standards as our products for humans.

Yoplait Greek 100 Yogurt Supports DreamCenter at GBK for the Emmys

Yoplait Greek 100 Yogurt Supports the Los Angeles DreamCenter at GBK Gifting Suites for the 2012 Emmys

Yoplait Greek 100 Yogurt helped The Los Angeles DreamCenter introduce their services that help the needy in Los Angeles to the celebrities at the GBK Gift Suites for the 2012 Emmys

The Los Angeles DreamCenter set up a booth along with Yoplait Greek Yogurt 100 calorie, to introduce their services to many of the Emmy celebrities.

I got a chance to speak with Yoplait Greek 100 Yogurt representative Ahsley Herendeen and Danny Slavens of Dream Center about the incredible work DreamCenter does for L.A.

Yoplait is helping the DreamCenter by giving a donation of $100 for each signature they got from Emmy Suite celebrities on a giant blow-up Greek 100 container. Yoplait believes that their affiliation with Dream Center is a great match since the DreamCenter feeds over 50,000 families a month.

Thank you to DreamCenter, Yoplait Yogurt and GBK Productions for everything they are doing to help the needy in Los Angeles. – JW

Yoplait greek 100 Yogurt

“New Greek 100 is everything you adore about Greek yogurt with 100 calories. It’s just one more way Yoplait helps you discover the SO good in everything.”

What is Greek Yogurt? It is usually a more dense yogurt with more butterfat and more protein.

Yoplait has cut the fat and doubled the protein (10 grams) to make this a 100 calorie great tasting alternative to traditional Greek Yogurt.

For more information and to check out the different flavors go to the:

Yoplait Greek 100 Yogurt Product Site

Yoplait Company

Yoplait believes Goodness is better than badness. And SO goodness is better than just plain goodness.

Yoplait is striving for so goodness. In themselves, the yogurts they make and in the way they behave.

Ultimately, we’re focused on making so good yogurt, and here’s how we see it: you can eat something that tastes amazing but isn’t that good for you. You can eat stuff that’s really good for you, but doesn’t always leave you yummed up. So good yogurt does both. All of you is happy, not just your tongue. And while so goodness will never be perfect, we’ll keep working on ways to make our yogurt more so good than it is today.

We also support causes that you care about. Like fighting breast cancer. We’re thinking we should do this in an even bigger way. We’re figuring that out and want your input.

People say life is really about the little moments of so goodness. There are big moments – we all know what those are – but since they don’t happen as often, we’ll stay focused on doing our part with the little moments. – Yoplait

DreamCenter

Pastor Matthew Barnett assumed the pastorate of Bethel Temple in 1994 at the age of twenty. After a life-changing encounter with God, he helped Bethel Temple transition from a traditional-style church to a servant driven ministry that grew into what is now known as The Dream Center.

Compelled by a vision to impact all of Los Angeles by addressing people’s physical and spiritual needs in unique and practical ways, The Dream Center has grown into a phenomenon that now reaches more than 40,000 people each week through its multiple church services and various need-centered outreach ministries.

Pastor Matthew is also the senior pastor of the historic Angelus Temple, which combined forces with The Dream Center in 2001 in a historic unification of flagship ministries from two different denominations (Foursquare and Assemblies of God).

ABC 7 News Video on DreamCenter [CLICK HERE TO WATCH]

The mission is to directly impact the issues that afflict Los Angeles communities by reconnecting isolated people to God and a community of support by providing free human services that address immediate and long-term needs in the areas of homelessness, hunger relief, medical care, mental health and education.

The vision is a community of resilient people whose lives have been redeemed by God’s love, who share that love with others to transform and restore broken lives to wholeness.

The DreamCenter Center

The Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Heart founded Queen of Angels Hospital in 1926. Father Wilhelm Berger, founder of the Franciscan Sisters, defined their ministries as ‘works of neighborly love’. With the establishment of the hospital, the sisters accepted the challenge to serve the poor, the sick, and the aging of Los Angeles for more than a half-century before closing their doors due to financial issues.

The growth of Los Angeles’ population throughout the mid-1920’s and into the 1940’s was directly reflected in the steady rise in admissions, births and patient day care at the hospital. This warranted major expansion projects to the facility in 1938 and 1945. The expanded 360,000 square foot campus now housed nine buildings and covered over eight acres. The distinction as the largest teaching hospital west of the Mississippi soon followed.

Despite enduring The Great Depression and World War II, the healing center fell victim to financial troubles in the early 1980′s, forcing a merger with neighboring Hollywood Clara Barton Memorial Hospital. The newer medical facility, located just three miles away, was renamed Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in 1989, at which time the fabled Queen of Angels Hospital in Echo Park closed its doors.

The site was mostly vacant but for a handful of loyal Franciscan Sisters that undertook caretaking duties. The property was also a popular location for commercial, film, music video and television productions.

The owner of the facility rejected lucrative offers from major entertainment companies in favor of Pastors Tommy and Matthew Barnett’s vision to convert the facility into a ‘spiritual healing center’, but the $10 million dollar asking price was still out of their range. Prayer and negotiations brought the asking price down to $3.9 million dollars and ‘The Church That Never Sleeps’ established its new home in 1996.

Christian Drapeau Increasing Your Bodies Natural Release of Adult Stem Cells

Christian Drapeau Author of “Cracking the Stem Cell Code” and Chief Science Officer for StemTech International

Talks to us about their breakthrough product that increases your bodies natural release of the reparative adult stem cells.

OMG not another health breakthrough! I avoid these things as I get so many request for me to try someones product so I can help promote them.

OK so I show up at the W Hotel, in Hollywood and while sitting down and checking my emails in the lobby, an old friend Lisa Hill walks up and gives me a big hug and says she is glad to see me there. I was glad to see her also as between celebrity interviews Lisa and I have hung out and she is wonderful.

She asked me to stop by and check out their booth at the Emmy event and of course I did. Only to see a health product… Oh noooo.

Then I found out what it was. A nutritional product that naturally makes the body increase its creation of natural adult stem cells. OMG I was just reading on the astounding health breakthroughs were happening and will be happening in the future based on stem cell treatments. 

I was hooked and wanted to know more. They said there were studies. Not about stem cells… We know they work. The studies were about product. OK I love studies… Not to hep on testimonials. Anyway I had the Christian Drapeau call me at home to talk about the real science and studies. I didn’t want to report on another product that did not have proof that it worked.

I was astounded by the thought that I could increase the amount of stems cells in my body, for a fraction of the cost of injections, and that by taking this supplement every day, I could keep large amounts of stem cells in my body for much longer periods than the expensive injection.

I am trying out the SE2 product and DermaStem right now. I am not one to look for a product experience. If your diet sucks and you start taking supplements that give you nutrients you are not getting via the typical burger and fries than you will probably feel better and there is always the placebo effect. I do have to say I do feel better just knowing that I am allowing my body to do a better job at naturally healing itself.

I spend almost an hour on the phone with Christian and if you listen to this interview you will see why. This might be the most important breakthrough in personal health since we discovered antioxidants… I would actually dare to say that this would be more important

If you know anyone suffering health issues or you are yourself, you need to listen to this interview. Remember that your future health concerns are based on things you are doing right now. – JW

The Stem Cell Theory of Renewal

Demystifying the Most Dramatic Scientific Breakthrough of Our Time

Are the functions of Adult Stem Cells really the most dramatic scientific breakthrough of our times?

Visionary Stem Cell Scientist and Stem Cell Nutrition expert Christian Drapeau says “Absolutely Yes” as he explains the science and implications behind the body’s natural renewal system.

Adult Stem Cells in your bone marrow constitute the natural healing system of your body. Wherever there is an injury or damage to any organ, stem cells are released from the bone marrow. They migrate to that organ and become healthy cells of that organ, literally repairing the damaged tissue.

The implications of new developments in Adult Stem Cell science for health and wellness are mind boggling.

Kaya Redford Using NLP and Timeline Therapy to Change Your Life

Kaya Redford NLP Expert Talks About Using NLP and Timeline Therapy to Drastically Change Your Life.

Kaya Redford has spent his life studying NLP from the Masters and he shares what he has learned with thousands to help them get rid of fear, anger, anxiety, self sabotage and all the emotions that hold you back from having a fully realized and happy life.

I first met Kaya about four or five years ago at an event he produced with Bob Proctor, to help people learn about the concepts of Napoleon Hill’s great book “Think and Grow Rich”.

I was invited to some of his classes to sit in and check them out and I was impressed with the depth of his teaching. He brought his classes through line after line of the book, not stopping till the class thoroughly understood what was being said and how it related to each of them in their own journeys to build a full, successful and better life.

Later on I heard Kaya, who had learned from the top NLP Masters, was teaching a course in NLP and how to use the science to help them in sales, business and again, in fulfilling their greatest potential.

I asked Kaya to let me into the class, which he always keeps small so he can give individual attention. He welcomed me in as that is the kind of person Kaya is. The class was, once again, amazingly full of great information and tools that he had everyone work out in class. Kaya never just speaks, he gets his classes fully involved. I learned a lot that day about the good of NLP as I was one of those that only thought that NLP was used to convince people to buy stuff they really didn’t want.

I have wanted to get Kaya to do an interview with me for the longest time, but we have never been able to get the two of us in sync with schedules so I am so happy that we finally got him to give us some of his very precious time.

The call quality is not what I would have liked, but I did not want to reschedule this one because I believe what Kaya has to say will help a lot of people.

Kaya thanks for your time and the wisdom you shared that made this a great call.  – JW

Neuro linguistic Programming (NLP)

From Wikipedia

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created in the 1970s. The title refers to a stated connection between the neurological processes (“neuro”), language (“linguistic”), and behavioral patterns that have been learned through experience (“programming”) and can be organized to achieve specific goals in life.[1][2]

The founders of NLP, Richard Bandler and John Grinder, say that NLP is capable of addressing problems such as phobias, depression, habit disorder, psychosomatic illnesses, and learning disorders.[citation needed] Their stated aim was in “finding ways to help people have better, fuller and richer lives.”[8][9] Bandler and Grinder claimed that if the effective patterns of behaviour of exceptional people could be modeled then these patterns could be acquired by others. NLP has been adopted by private therapists, including hypnotherapists, and in management workshops and seminars marketed to business and government.[10][11]

From Kaya’s Site:

WHAT EXACTLY IS N.L.P.? (Neuro Linguistic Programming) A way of thinking and a set of skills that’s easy to understand, which gives you more focus, self confidence, power to make good decisions, directions, ability to create wealth, productivity, less procrastination, faster progress and success in any area of your life.

It has been studied and used by the world’s top leaders including Former Presidents: Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, President Barack Obama as well as Real Estate & Business Tycoons: Donald Trump, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey and Richard Branson. Fortune 500 Companies: Bank of America, New York Life, Century 21, Keller Williams, ACN, Xerox, British Telecom (HDI-IT) as well as many private firms and law firms have received our Quantum Leap NOW N.L.P. Trainings and have achieved outstanding success as a result. It is a very powerful tool to create change in others whether in business, professional sports, as a parent or as a coach.

Timeline Therapy

I know nothing about Timeline Therapy, but I do know the power of the reactive mind and if Timeline Therapy techniques can help change the reactive mind, then I am interested. – JW

From About.com

The therapeutic process called Time Line Therapy is a methodology in which a series of techniques are used to bring about changes on an unconscious level and alter behavior. The intention of this therapy is to help individuals refrain from being reactive to present situations based on past experiences. Time Line Therapy is a reprogramming process that releases the effects of negative experiences and helps a person let go of past influences.

From Kaya’s Site:

Time Line Therapy allows you to go back to the “root” cause of a problem and heal an issue which is blocking you. Imagine for a moment that you had inside you a time machine that allows you to go backg, revisit & heal stuff from the past. When you heal the past through Time Line Therapy, you release all anger, sadness, fear, hurt, guilt, shame, resentment, jealousy, rage, irritation and any other negative emotions. All the while, you clear a path to go forward in your timeline & set goals that you’ll achieve in your future.

Also releasing issues from the past with Time Line Therapy allows you to change your limiting beliefs in the present moment to empowering ones that launch you to QUANTUM LEAP NOW IN YOUR SUCCESS! GREAT NEWS!!

The Prince of Wales, The English Royal Family and England is endorsing Neuro Linguistic Programing (NLP) & Time Line Therapy (the same techniques I use & teach) as the methods to heal soldiers returning from Afghanistan in emotional pain including including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Personal Note from the interviewer:

There are many who challenge NLP as pseudoscience and I would not argue with many of the findings of the studies which have been done, but I always believe the often there is no black and white. The truth is often somewhere in the middle.

What I do know is that the masters of marketing are using and have used NLP for many years. I have been to many many conferences with some of the greatest speakers and sales people in the world and they care about the numbers they sell to. They are continually testing techniques to sell more or to build better rapport with their audiences and they throw out what does not work, but these speakers and marketers continually use NLP concepts and techniques over and over again so, to me, this points to the probability that there are NLP techniques that work and can be very powerful.

There is no mysticism about NLP and not all the techniques will work with everyone in every situation. It is a tool that systematizes our responses in order to better communicate to your audience, clients or relationships.

I am no expert so that is my opinion. I have used a few NLP techniques to help clients get to a comfort level with me very quickly. I use mirroring and have found that it works extremely well. I have also used the anchoring technique and found that it worked, but I do not use it as it is not a technique that feels natural to me though I know many that love that technique.

Kaya’s NLP course went so much farther into how people react to different situations and how you can use these reactions to open up communications to their fullest potential.

With all things, check out the facts, not the hype and try things for yourself. Do not let the noise of other’s opinions drown out who you are. Remember it isn’t alsways about what we know or about what we do not know, but more about what we do not know that we do not know. – JW

An American watch company with a European sounding name, but they are all American. One of their watches (Model JG6500), given as a gift, is worn by President Elect Barack Obama.

I got the chance to speak with Mark Gurdus, the VP of International sales for Jorg Gray (pronounced Your Gray), about their their beautiful and wonderfully unique timepieces, which are worn by many celebrities and clients that enjoy wearing quality timepieces. 

These watches are well made with casual, sports and luxury designs for all tastes and almost all are water resistant to over 300ft. These are good watches and run from around $250 to $1000 Their signature watch is the JG6500, but don’t forget to check out the Limited Edition watches…Very Nice!

I had a real great time with Mark and he allowed me to feel presidential for one minute as I got to wear the model Obama wears for the interview. Thanks Mark – JW

Randy Gage – Risky is the New Safe – Book Release

Randy Gage,  the Millionaire Messiah, Releases His Ninth Book and Most Controversial Ever!

Randy Gage - Risky is the New Safe 3d

Randy’s Rants, His Blog, his speaches… Randy does not shy away from controversial conversations about religion, politics or especially about prosperity as Randy feels it is a sin to be Poor. His 9th Book Risky is the New Safe is his boldest yet and will surely be a classic for a new age.

I have been following Randy for many years, since I first heard him speak to around a thousand people at a conference. He is a great speaker, funny, inspiring, smart and wise.

I especially love his no fear, straight talk, sense of humor and his lessons in how to build sales, teams, community….. and about what it takes to have a successful and prosperous life.

I am elated to have been chosen by Randy to be one of a small few that got a chance to receive a gallery copy (pre-release copy) of his new book which is not being released till October 30th. This book is really what we need right now. I cannot say I agree with it all, but I am a Randy Gage believer and this book did not change my mind. It actually helped me clarify a few things I need to do and it put a real fire under my ass to do some things I was not doing.

The book, “Risky is the New Safe”, is the Randy Gage I so loved so much from his book “Why You’re Dumb Sick and Broke and How to Get Smart Healthy and Rich”.  The advance buzz on this book is ridiculous and amazingly huge. I believe this is a book you will be buying for your friends and family.

Many may describe this book as irreverent and very way out there,  and it is meant to be. Not for shock value, but because Randy believes the playing field has changed so much that we need to get real and be able to change our “out of date” thinking now or possibly peril. 

We have seen technology change things for the better and the worse in a very short time and Randy believes that, not only do we need to embrace the change, but we have to get extremely creative and change our way of thinking and looking at the world, if we want to be successful in it.

This book will be called many things. A game changer, a look at the future or even crazy talk, but whatever you believe you will be changed by this book as once a mind is stretched, it is hard to put back.

One thing I know for sure is that Randy Gage doesn’t say things he does not mean and he explains in great detail why he believes what he is predicting and what you need to do to take advantage of the incredible changes yet to come.

Get ready to Zig while others continue to Zag.

I can only imagine Randy’s schedule for this book release, so I so thank him for giving me some of his personal time to give me this interview. Randy tells it like it is, in his new book and in this interview. Thank You Randy – JW

Randy Gage - Risky is the New Safe 3dRisky is the New Safe

Is…. Brash, Controversial, Thought-Provoking

This is a different kind of book for a different kind of thinking.  It’s a thought-provoking manifesto for risk takers.  Disruptive technology, accelerating speed of change and economic upheaval are changing the game.  The same tired, old conventional thinking won’t get you to success today.

Risky Is the New Safe will change the way you look at everything!  You’ll view challenges – and the corresponding opportunities they provide – in entirely new and exciting ways.  You’ll recognize powerful new gateways you can walk through to create wealth.

In this mind-bending book you’ll discover:

  • How mavericks like Steve Jobs, Richard Branson and Mark Cuban, think differently – and what you can learn from them;
  • The six-month online course that could allow you to earn more than a Ph.D.;
  • How social media changes branding and marketing forever, and what that means for you;
  • What happens when holo-suites and virtual-reality sex come about, and how you need to prepare;
  • The New Religion of Ideas:  How to become an “idea generator” and declare as a free agent; and,
  • What will cause the Euro, precious metals, and oceanfront real estate to collapse – and how that can make you rich!

I’ll warn you up front, the book will be controversial to some.  Randy attacks anything that holds you back from success, including government propaganda, conventional wisdom, and other limiting beliefs.  He didn’t write Risky Is the New Safe to tell you what to think.  He wrote it to cause you to think.

I don’t expect you to agree with everything you read in there – and would be surprised if you did. It’s for people who love intellectual discourse, challenging ideas, opposing viewpoints and honest and respectful discussion of the issues surrounding what it takes to be successful today.

Here is what others that received a pre-release  are saying!

“Holy crap, I love this book! It’s smart, entertaining and best of all, made me re-think my life and my business.  That’s a winning combination I find irresistible.  Don’t hesitate to buy this book and put it to use in every aspect of your life.”
— Larry Winget

Global Business Celebrity,
Bestselling Author, Sometime Cowboy

Read this book. But, before you do, suspend what you already believe is true about the way the world is and operates. You are about to learn what ‘critical thinking’ is all about, why risky indeed is the new (and perhaps, only) safe, and how it can make you wiser and more prosperous. The good news is that – in typical Randy Gage style – it will be fun, entertaining, and just sarcastic enough to keep you riveted to every page. Get out your pen and highlighter…you’re gonna’ need it!”
— Bob Burg
Co-author of The Go-Giver
and author of Endless Referrals

Couldn’t take my eyes off this, great freaking book!  Risky is the New Safe is a combination of Buffet, Springsteen, Rand, and Patton. Randy Gage is the ranking intellect of prosperity in our time, and only Luddites will ignore him. He has, yet again, written of the promise of abundance, the appeal of change, and the vast value of new and emerging relationships. There’s nothing risky about buying this book except forgetting to do anything else while you’re engrossed in it.” — Alan Weiss, Ph.D.
Author, The Consulting Bible and Thrive: Stop Wishing Your Life Away!

Relevant, challenging and thought-provoking.  This book is a must-read for entrepreneurs.”
— Ken Dychtwald, Ph.D.
Author of A New Purpose: Redefining Money, Family, Work, Retirement
and Success

I think I held my breath through the entire first chapter. Randy paints a vivid picture of an exhilarating future if we heed his warnings and a terrifying one if we don’t. Reading this book is the safest bet you’ve got.” — Kyle Maynard
2-time ESPY Award winner and author of NY Times bestseller No Excuses

Riveting! A homerun! Gripped me from the first pages and expanded my mind while entertaining me too. I love this gem!” — Joe Vitale
Author, Attract Money Now
and Hypnotic Writing

I couldn’t put it down! In fact, I found myself racing through each page because I couldn’t wait to find out what was coming next.  My next reading will include a highlighter and my journal so I can incorporate Randy’s life changing thoughts into my life on a daily basis.  This book inspired me, challenged me and motivated me to think differently and take my mission to a much bigger level.  I will be sharing it with all of my peers.” — JJ Virgin

Once you read – and more importantly apply  – the ideas contained in Risky is the New Safe, it will be impossible to go back to your old ways of thinking. Randy Gage will free your mind from the shackles of outdated thinking and give you tools that will enable you to navigate the greatest paradigm shift we are now in with the deftness of a Jedi Master. This is an outstanding work.”

Randy GageRandy Gage

“I believe you were born to be rich, people are meant to be inspired, and conventions should rock.

I believe a blog can change the world and a speech can change a life.

I believe safe is the new risky, boring is criminal, and pitchers should hit.

Call me a philosopher, a Jedi Knight or the millionaire messiah, just don’t call me late for dinner. I like hot cars, warm beaches and cold Dr. Pepper. Quiet confidence and loud ideas are sexy. When I’m not prowling the podium or locked in my lonely writer’s garret, you’ll find me playing 3rd base for a softball team somewhere.

I believe in my work, because I believe in you.”
