EVA ZATRAK - THE PERSEVERING ENTREPRENEUR
Eva was born and raised in Slovakia where she graduated from nursing school and worked for six years as a registered nurse. After a few years, Eva traveled to Libya to work on a 3 year contract. This was one of the greatest experiences of her life. She was amazed one day when a patient came to the ER with a minor cut to his finger, accompanied by 15 others, who came to look at a white nurse!
In 1986, she met her husband who arrived in Libya from Slovakia as a gynecologist. Eva endured some difficult times as Communism was collapsing and the Austrian officials demanding proof of living or face deportation back home. Her final emigration was bitter sweet, her mother died in April 1990 from breast cancer and though only a few hundred kilometers away, she could not return home to be with her in her final days (she was 54 years old). Eva left for Canada alone in August of the same year, as her fiance was not accepted for sponsorship.
Eva arrived in Canada and was picked up from the airport by government sponsorship officials. She did not speak a word of English nor did she understand a word spoken to her. Within a year of her arrival to Canada, she withdrew from the sponsorship program, paid back her government sponsorship, moved to a bigger apartment and celebrated her fiance joining her in Canada. They were married later that year and moved to Toronto.
In 1995, Eva went back to school and earned her RN license in Canada. Eva and business partner Marion, launched Thornbrook Home Care, a private home care company for the elderly. In 2009, Eva launched BoomertoBoomer Online, providing family caregivers support and advice. In 2011, Eva opened a second company, Thistlecreek Health Care, she currently manages the administration in both companies.
Why do we bother going through the rejection process to get our books read? If we self-publish, there are other obstacles to overcome just to capture a part of the audience out there. As writers we are looking for validation, which pushes us to send query letters and get back rejections and join writing groups to plug into the creativity. The publishing process is torturous. If a writer is going the traditional publishing route, we have to stand out as THE manuscript to stand out from the 30,000 manuscripts that are received by the agent. Then they have to try to sell the manuscript to the publishing house who may not be looking for what you wrote. Then you have to catch the audience, right next to the self-published writer.

In this lesson Peter continues to discuss persecution. In the earlier chapter Peter deals with preparing for persecution 1Peter 3:13-18. In this setting he takes a quick slant that relates to persevering.
While we might not ever endure "physical" persecution, it is unlikely that we will escape occasional "verbal" or "social" persecution.
Therefore, this lesson can be of great benefit to help us persevere in such circumstances
Host Cyrus Webb welcomes Jesse Barton of The Persevering Promise to Conversations LIVE to discuss their love of music and new project.

Breaking Down the Walls: 50 Courageous & Successful Years at the Forefront of the Women's Movement by Norma Yaeger is a poignant and courageous memoir about a woman’s fight to find her purpose and overcome the barriers in a male-dominated society…and how she succeeded.
When Norma acquired her New York Stock Exchange license in 1962, she didn’t know of any other women in the industry. The Stock Exchange didn’t even allow women to step foot on its floor. But having just escaped poverty in NY’s Catskill Mountains, and determined to support her children, Norma wasn’t going to let the exclusionary traditions of the financial industry stop her from becoming a stockbroker.
During her long career she founded a mutual fund and two security brokerage firms that transacted millions of dollars of trades every day. She made fortunes and folded companies, all while raising five children. Persevering to achieve the work-home balance, Norma rose through the ranks and opened doors for young women.
The true story of a 20th century pioneer, Breaking Down the Walls is a window into the reality of being a woman, a wife and a mother in the middle of the century. Moreover, it is an inspiration to 21st century women who will realize viscerally just how far we’ve come—and be reminded of how far we have yet to go.
This is a version of the American Dream that is rarely told—one that includes aggressiveness and ethics, toughness and tenderness. It is a story integrity and of joy in fighting the good fight, a story of strength of character. And it is the story of a woman at the forefront of the women’s movement…before that movement even had a name.
Chicago's Anthony D. Collins, Author of "Life Is Outstanding", shares his thoughts on crime and murder in Chicago, the significance of networking, and the challenges of following one's dream. The rising star has used social media to grow his arsenal and his empire of helping empower others. He tells why Atlanta is one of his favorite cities and has become an integral part of his success. A can-do minded person, Collins speaks about facing one's fears and persevering anyway. I am personally proud of his tenacity and desire to succeed in all areas of life.
The Book of Hebrews challenges us to “run with endurance the race that is set before us.” The persevering obedience of faith in Christ, is the race set before the Hebrews and us. Therein we must win the crown of glory, or have everlasting misery and torment..
The Book of James is a "how to" instruction guide for Christians for their lives. It is one of the most practical books in the New Testament because it offers instruction and exhortation to Christians who are experiencing problems as we all do.
