    Awake 2 Oneness Radio with Worldwide Coordinating Director for Humanity’s Team Steve Farrell, Friday April 17, 2015 at 7:00 PM EDT.  


    I first made a connection with Steve Farrell in October 2014 when I created a video in honor of Global Oneness Day on October 24, 2014.  Humanity’s Team sponsors Global Oneness Day annually bringing together dozens of inspirational speakers whose commitment and insight into Oneness have inspired millions. 


    Steve Farrell is the Worldwide Coordinating Director for Humanity’s Team. Humanity’s Team is an International Spiritual organization whose purpose is to communicate and demonstrate the timeless truth that We Are All One. 


    Humanity’s Team was created by the spiritual author Neale Donald Walsch, author of the Conversations with God series of books, in 2003 in response to the inspiration he received in the producing of those books regarding the crisis that the human race was facing following the events of September 11th, 2001. 


    In early 2004, Steve Farrell became the Worldwide Coordinating Director.  Together with a small team he formed a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and created a governance structure and programs focused on Awakening the world to Oneness.

    Cora Jakes-Coleman - Children's Ministry Director

    in Radio

    Cora Coleman is 27 years old. She is a wife to her wonderful husband Brandon Coleman and is the mother to her beautiful daughter Amauri Coleman. She’s the daughter to world renown Bishop Jakes, and First Lady Serita Jakes. She is working as the children’s ministry director of The Potter’s House of Dallas. She loves life, and enjoys writing. She began writing in her blog Fertility Faith at the age of 24 because at the age of 22 the doctors diagnosed her with infertility. She went to the web looking for young women her age that were going through infertility, and could be a support to her, and found nothing for her age group. At the age of 24 Cora went through her first IVF cycle, and it failed. She was heartbroken, lost, and confused. She was able to find wonderful women through her sister’s blog sarahdjakes.com that had fought infertility and won. When she began to find these women they became her support and her push. Having these women encouraged her to continue to push forward, and pushed her to speak about her struggle to help someone else. She was able to find what she calls her community she calls her support community her fertility sisters, and without them she would have been lost. Cora Coleman now post in her blog weekly, and speaks out about her battle with infertility in the hopes of building a group of support for all people who are fighting for not just a baby but for their ultimate promise that the Lord has spoken over them. She is now a minister in training under the Potter’s House school of Ministry. She plans to continue to encourage people through her blog, writing books, and speaking out about continuing to fight for your dream no matter what obstacle you are facing. She does not just have a heart for young women battling infertility, but she has a heart for people who are trying to get and reach their promise.

    Author and Film Director William Dickerson

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview William Dickerson.


    William Dickerson is a writer and director whose debut feature film, "Detour," was hailed as an “underground hit” by The Village Voice, an “emotional and psychological roller-coaster ride” by The Examiner, and nothing short of “authentic” by The New York Times. He self-released his metafictional satire, "The Mirror," which opened YoFi Fest’s inaugural film festival in 2013 and he alsoe recently completed his third feature film, "Don’t Look Back," for MarVista Entertainment. His award-winning work has been recognized by film festivals across the country. His first book, "No Alternative," was declared, “a sympathetic coming-of-age story deeply embedded in ‘90s music” by Kirkus Reviews. He currently serves on AFI’s Alumni Executive Board and is a Faculty Member at the New York Film Academy.

    Based on his challenges while making his debut “microbudget” film, Detour, Dickerson walks the reader through every aspect of making a film in Hollywood. From style direction to financial obstacles, it’s a detailed guide of the experiences of up and coming filmmakers in Los Angeles. 

    Kirkus Reviews said Detour: Hollywood is “A breezy guide that takes readers inside the sometimes-hair-raising world of do-it-yourself filmmaking, capturing its many frustrations and challenges.”

  • 2015 Vision Casting: Back to Balance with Cynthia Enns

    in Business

    “We wanted to stay true to our ideal and that was quality.”


    Cynthia is the co-owner of Laughing Stock Vineyard with her husband David Enns. She is also the owner of Credo Consulting Inc. 


     


    Cynthia shares 3 keys:



    On beginning your entrepreneurial journey: “Write down that vision. So keep a goal of what you want to be working with because it's no fun to compromise if you have to compromise because of financial restraints or anything. In those situations you have to be creative in how to keep your own ideal about whatever your vision is and your quality parameter. Maybe you do have to make less wine at the beginning. You do want to become a 5,000 case winery but start slow so that you can build to that and maintain those quality parameters that you're thinking of.”


     



    On branding your product: “. . . it's not always easy; but to not compromise the quality. And when I mean quality I'm not just talking about the wine product. I'm talking about the quality of your staff, the quality of your suppliers.”


     



    On staying small vs. building an empire: "The term I use for myself is you can get kind of caught up in empire building, and just because we could sell 15,000 cases – we’d chosen personally not to. So right now we’re plateaued and have been for about 3 years at 6500 cases, which means our building is really full. And it’s as full as we want to go and you can stay hands-on still.”
