Yay! Another Monday, another dancing segment. Today is the last Ellie Goulding repeat of my iPod playlist. Let's dance and enjoy what is left. I want you boogying to the wonderful music she makes.
Let's not forget, though. I also give you a quick update of how my weekend went. What a turn around; what tragic! I can't believe all that happened.
Compromise has cost many great people countless time, effort, resources, talent, and so much more. Can you afford to lose any more ground in your life? Can you afford to lose blessings? Can you afford to forfeit your inheritance? Re-evaluate who you're dancing with. It may just be time to switch partners!
This week please join Frankie Picasso on The Good Radio Network this Thursday, January 22 at 1:00 pm est.when her guest is Mauricio Laniado, Founder of Juntos Shoes, a social fashion company whose motto is Look Good, Do Good!
Mauricio is a young social entrepreneur who has reached back to his heritage and taken the lowly El Zapato de Lona, the Ecuadorian street shoe , worn by the working class in cities like Guayaquil, Ecuador ( where he was born) and turned it into a fashion statement for all. This shoe is an iconic part of the Ecuadoran landscape - part functional necessity, part social signifier.
Juntos embraces this heritage and brings it to you, refining and repurposing the design while preserving everything that makes the shoe, the shoe.
That’s why there is a map of Ecuador on the inside of every pair, so one never forgets where they came from.
It’s also why for every pair sold, Juntos donates an education pack filled with crucial school supplies to a local child in Ecuador –as a small way of giving back to the places wherehe found inspiration. So far 1000 packs have been given out to students. The bright yellow bag with the Juntos logo is also funtional as well as beautiful.
I don't think we have anything to worry about if our future includes young Entrepreneuers like Mauricio Lanidades.
For Mauricio and his company..that is what they call- a real ethical footprint.

THIS WEEK, after having William "Mickey" Stevenson on KINGS IN THE MORNING, I was thoroughly impressed of what that man brought to MOTOWN Records. Mickey Stevenson put Motown Records on the map with his writings, with his producing, with his organization. I saw his name on records, but I never knew how valuable William "MICKEY" Stevenson was the the Motown foundation. With a great foundation like MOTOWN has become, where do you think, the Commodores, Rick James, The Jackson 5, the many many MANY artists that Berry Gordy Jr & the MOTOWN company created, exposed, manufactured and more would have been had there not been a Motown Music Empire? Today, you will hear his words, his works and learn some information on a piece of Motown. Thank you for joining us!

Today's special guest is Quikiks Founder Steve Kaufman.
So, what exactly is Quikiks? For people with arthritis or anyone who struggles with a task as simple as putting on shoes, the Quikiks Step-in-Go Shoe System offers a hands-free solution. The shoes easily open and close using hinges and magnets. Simply step into the shoes for a secure fit and strike the back of your heel to remove. No need to bother with laces or Velcro. How easy is that?!
Listen in to our conversation with Steve about Quikiks.
A portion of this show was recorded earlier this week. I was asked to talk about how a person can stay joyful and in the light when so many negative energies seem to be bombarding us from many angles. I was blessed to have the universal oracle Pythia come through and share a wonderfully inspiring message on how to dance with the light in the darkness. Listen in, I am certain you will agree she is very inspiring and her message will bring you hope.
