NWP Welcomes David Wertheimer. Mr. Wertheirmer oversees the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on family homelessness. David is also the board chair for @funderstogether and he joins us today on behalf of the Gates Foundation to discuss this issue and what we can do to make a difference. http://www.gatesfoundation.org
Our friend and co-trustee Warren Buffett once gave us some great advice about philanthropy: “Don’t just go for safe projects,” he said. “Take on the really tough problems.”
We couldn’t agree more. Our foundation is teaming up with partners around the world to take on some tough challenges: extreme poverty and poor health in developing countries, and the failures of America’s education system. We focus on only a few issues because we think that’s the best way to have great impact, and we focus on these issues in particular because we think they are the biggest barriers that prevent people from making the most of their lives.
We’re both optimists. We believe by doing these things—focusing on a few big goals and working with our partners on innovative solutions—we can help every person get the chance to live a healthy, productive life.

The purpose of a gate is to control acess in and out of some place. In the Bible, gates represent many things and were therefore very important. Consequently, they were built strong and were heavily defended. They were open during the day and closed at night. They were important to the civic and economic life life of the city. The city's elders sat there to administer judicial matters and kings use that location to meet with their subjects. Often the reading of the law and proclamations were made at the gate.

in Self Help
New York, NY – The journey to realize our truth and actualize our potential takes time, awareness, self-knowledge and courage. It is a life-long process of learning to accept and express ourselves. As a self-actualization expert, motivator, coach, author and thought leader, Nomi Bachar has dedicated the last 26 years to the art and craft of human growth and transformation.
“I have learned that what gives us the most fulfillment and happiness is the ability to be who we are and grow into our true power,” says Bachar.
Ms. Bachar is the director of The White Cedar Institute located in Manhattan and creator of the Gates of Power method, a practical, comprehensive and revolutionary method for self-transformation designed to unleash one’s potential and optimize every facet of one’s life.
“Self-actualization means to take your potential and make it real,” says Bachar. “We all have amazing greatness inside of us, but we need to actualize it.”
The Gates of Power method provides clear, step-by-step instruction to create inner strength, balance, fulfillment, success, wholeness and total well-being. It offers a detailed map leading you towards your highest potential and performance. The book, Gates of Power: Actualize Your True Self, presents the basic principles of the method, featuring many personal stories, case studies, and exercises all based on the curriculum.
“To me the journey of transformation is an act of great creativity,” says Bachar. “We are creating ourselves and thus the world around us. My passion is to guide others to find inner freedom and inner strength."
