    Catherine Lewis-Brown Stop Wasting Your $$$ Marketing to the Clients You Don’t W

    in Real Estate

    Shell Brodnax interviews Catherine Lewis-Brown.


    Catherine Lewis-Brown states: I can’t wait to share with you the tool that was shared with me – the tool that has made marketing my business an absolute pleasure; because now I know that whenever I answer the phone, the person on the other end is someone I choose to work with, someone I market to directly!


    I want you to love your business because you have figured out who that person is – your Ideal Client! Once you know who your ideal client is, you can market to them with the same three-step process I use. It’s time to stop wasting your hard earned dollars on real estate agents and sellers that you don’t want to work with and market directly to the people who you LOVE, who LOVE you and, most importantly, who PAY you what you deserve!.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1286

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Cheri Roberts from Lincoln City, Oregon. Cheri is a prolific journalist, who suffered many forms of (sexual, emotional and physical) abuse as a child and her series offers voices from other adult survivors supported by leading experts on the topic of pedophilia, incest and molestation. Cheri is a weekly talk-show host and producer for "Challenging the Rhetoric" (#CTR) every Wednesday. She also hosts a special First Thursdays series called, Sickness of Silence (#SOS) addressing childhood sexual abuse. The talk show description explains, "The culture of silence lives on in every generation molding each like the one that came before it. Silence enables abuse, but our words have always held the power to stop it. It is our inability to listen to and share uncomfortable truths that have allowed families to maintain their semblance of normalcy." Cheri suffered abuse as a child, but most notably was sexually abused by several uncle's and a couple of her mother's boyfriends. The sexual abuse began at the age of 3 when Cheri's uncle and aunt became her legal guardians amidst the drug-fueled backdrop of America's sexual revolution. Cheri has spoken openly on the topic of her abuse for decades and feels the shaming of the abuser is also the shaming of the child. As she says, "Shame is what keeps secrets." Outside of her personal life, Cheri is a much endorsed writer, investigative journalist, coach and marketer. As a freelance writer and prominent activist, Cheri lives her life “out-loud” challenging the system with her back turned against the status quo of the failed corporate media.

    I don’t condone the violence on our streets or in our homes or work places. I believe that anyone that commits a violent act against another except in saving his own life or the life of someone else, should be punished under the laws of their country. Violence in the Black community is the result of being put in a controlled environment and all necessities taken away and we are forced to survive.  Anger builds up as we are denied real jobs that can pay for food, clothing, shelter, and recreation.  This feeling of hopelessness is passed down to the younger generations.  Alcohol and drugs are introduced as a anesthesia to numb the effects of the reality of their present situation of being homeless, no money, no food, but everyone can put on for a cheap drink or a bag of reggie (weed).  Parents and children smoking and drinking alcohol creates a powder keg with a short fuse.  Generic food and medicine are introduced into this controlled environment and we become #1 in all health issues.  Then you flood the community with quick kill automatic weapons of mass destruction and make the readily accessible.  Distrust is at an all-time high.  You can’t trust the doctor, the police, politicians, justice system or each other.  You can’t relate to most of them because they don’t look like you and they can’t begin to image what you are going through.  and if they did look like you, you won’t trust them. Frustration, hopelessness, and fear mounts.....................

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 4 (and we'll include a bit about TRADITION 4) - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, author of the book "Trauma and Transformation: A 12-Step Guide." Bill founded the recently launched Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous (ASCAA). Together they will lead tonight's discussion on STEP 4: "Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves."Most survivors, unless they are in a crisis, do not put much thought into what happened; the people, places, things, and reactions to events that have long-shaped their life. But if you have not yet taken a look at what traumata shaped your personality, behaviors, fears, and ways of responding in life, Step Four is a good opportunity to stop and think about it. Perhaps you have reached the day when you realize that you are not living your life as you really want to. Perhaps you feel a deep inner longing for healthy, secure attachment, love and a more kind relationship with yourself. You may experience a longing for life as you were told it was supposed to be but you have no evidence that you are living such a life. ~~ A child abuse survivor herself, Rivka Edery has been active in the 12 Step community for nearly 20 years. Bill Murray credits his 30 plus years of recovery to the spiritual power of the 12 Step program, too. ~~ Join us every two weeks to further examine a 12 Step approach to recovery from abuse. Next show we'll address STEP 5 & TRADITION 5. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: rebecca.edery@gmail.com

    Tonight's special guest is Linda Dueling from Omaha, Nebraska, a child abuse survivor and active NAASCA volunteer family member. Linda was sexually abused and eventually raped by her Grandpa. This went on until she was about 8 years old. Later, at 12, she would 'fall in love' with a 20 year old who introduced her to IV drugs. At 15 she ended up living on the streets with a boy and they were eventually arrested for 'breaking and entering' when they tried to find shelter. He was sent to Juvenile Hall, but Linda was released to her mother. "Mom slapped and hit me the whole walk home about 12 blocks." She ran away again and experienced a horrible gang rape by a group of 'friends'. Linda says. "I know GOD saved me that night." Linda began using drugs again and meet a boy who would become her husband. "He began hitting me within months," Linda says. "I was beaten daily." It took nearly 2 decades before she joined a church and got clean. For a while things got better. She earned a Certificate in Counseling for Addiction. She built businesses and was seen as a 'success'. "I had over come my addiction and my marriage was now 'healthy' by everyone's standards. Yet I felt dead." In 2008 she tried to take her life. "I was held at the hospital for almost a month. When I left I went into Intensive Outpatient Therapy 5 days a week, four hours a day." In 2010 she'd had enough. "I left for a business trip and never returned home." Her life has improved but she knows she still has a long way to go. She pushes on "Telling this side of my story with out protecting anyone in the process is a new journey."
