SORT BY Relevancy
Due to technical issues, my scheduled guest, Luaren Solomon, will not be with us this morning. Look for Lauren next week. In the meantime, you'll love this encore presentation:
My guest this week is Dan Vega. He's one of those people we hear about who came from humble beginnings and made themselves into millionaires. Dan learned the business world so well, he now guides companies to 7-figure revenue streams or whatever their goal is.
Entrepreneur, business coach, investor, speaker, writer, and television talk show host, Dan started his first business at age nineteen and just kept going. And in a twist on the story we don't hear too often, he is the host of his own ABC Gulf Region late nite talk shows, Tuesdays With Dan, now in its 6th season and retitled The Dan Vega Show.
He business boot camps and business coaching have earned him the moniker "America's #1 Results Guy."
In this episode of GaptoothDiva Radio, we discuss the serious issue of domestic violence with the home. However, tonight’s conversation isn’t about between man, woman, lover, spouse, or partner, like many of the conversations we hear about often. Tonight’s DV conversation centers on Mother and Daughter. With so many stories surfacing about daughters killing their mothers, mother being arrested for assault, we wanted to allow space for honest dialogue about this issue on our platform. We know firsthand that the mother daughter dynamic can often be challenging and tumultuous at times, unlike the fairy tale friendships that we used to see on television. Tonight we chat about this issue and how we can potentially make a change.
Listen in as we come back with more of the off the cuff entertainment but with real and honest conversation surrounding topics related to you. Using Fashion, Music, Culture, Entertainment, and Lifestyle, I’esha GaptoothDiva holds no punches in an effort to inspire you to be as phenomenal as you were born to be.

The majority of these children being sold for sex are girls between the ages of 7 years and 14. They are girls abducted or lured by traffickers and then routinely raped, beaten into submission, and sometimes even branded. When the girls try to run away, their traffickers torture and or gang rape them.
The ugly truth is that it is less risky and more profitable to sell a girl than crack cocaine or meth. The U.S. government spends 300 times more money each year to fight drug trafficking than it does to fight human trafficking. And the criminal penalties for drug trafficking are generally greater than the ones usually levied against those who traffic in girls. Traffickers, and especially the politely termed “Johns,” are rarely arrested and prosecuted. Which explains the growing demand for vey young girls— at the click of a mouse, a “John” can purchase a girl online on legitimate websites like Backpage.com, with minimal fear of punishment.
Many of these girls who are bought and sold for sex come out of a broken foster care system. “Of the trafficking victims in Alameda County, California, 55 percent were from foster youth group homes. In New York, 85 percent of trafficking victims had prior child welfare involvement. And in Florida, the head of the state’s trafficking task force estimates that 70 percent of victims are foster youth.
” born into the foster care system and trafficked at the age of 10, sold to men all over California, Washington, Oregon and Nevada. She recently shared her own observation at a Congressional briefing on how foster care rendered her vulnerable to being exploited. “In most of my 14 different placements in foster care homes, I was raped, and attached to a check. I understood very early that I could be raped, cared for, and connected to money. It was therefore easy to go from that to a pimp, and at least the pimp told me that he loved me.”
