Venita and her husband, Duwayne, own C & J Trophy & Engraving, a family business. The couple makes it work by setting serious boundaries. Nestled between the University of Memphis campus and the Orange Mound Community, one of the largest and oldest black neighborhoods in the country. They purchased the business and property had been in business for over 30 years. The startup risk was low, but the stakes were high since they knew nothing about the awards and recognition industry. For the first few years, The Smiths didn’t change a thing. Fortunately, Venita had experience in retail and operations management and her husband had background in color proofing and lithographic photography, so they threw caution to the wind and went for it. And, eight years later, the rest is history.
Her first job, was at the Memphis in May International Festival as Secretary. That position would lead becoming its Operations Director for 10 years. That led her to become the Director of Operations at the National Civil Rights Museum. During her 16-year tenure, she assisted with two renovation projects and two expansion projects all while managing the day-to-day operations of the 40,000 square foot facility, 13 full time staff members, security, housekeeping and IT contractors. Venita retired in 2014 to focus more on the family business.
With her father owning a shoe repair business for over 30 years and her mother, who was a beautician and owned her own salon, Venita was destined to become an entrepreneur. Venita watched her parents as they worked together like hand and glove to provide a comfortable lifestyle for her family. They managed to work together as a team, like she and her husband Duwayne. Venita is the brain and Duwayne is the brawn.

The novel is renowned for its warmth and humor, despite dealing with the serious issues of reap and racial inequality. The narrator's father, Atticus Finch, has served as amoral hero for many readers and as a model of integrity for lawyers. One critic explains the novel's impact by writing, "In the twentieth century, To Kill A Mockingbird is probably the most widely read book dealing with race in America, and its protagonist, Atticus Finch, the most enduring fictional image of recial heroism" (Wikipedia.org)
Here is a trailer from the movie To Kill A Mockingbird Trailer

Super courageous, research genius Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D, from MIT, will share her latest research dealing with cholesterol-sulfate. She will share her unique views of disease, the importance of sun exposure, Vitamin D, Autism, Alzheimer's, GMO’s, herbicides, statins and other current Big Business “innovations” designed to control and kill us.
Because of her research she has incredible insights into the role that Big $$ corporations have on our health; from manufacturing poisons to infections/inflammations, immune suppression, cancer, brain malfunctions and deteriorating health.

Tune in as we talk about this incredible book. We always have a lively discussion as you can imagine a lot of what is happening in the book happening where you grew up in your own home town.
My suggestion to all of you is read the book first before you watch the movie. The book is so much more discriptive of the everyday life of this family.
in Self Help
Augustine (Og) Mandino was down on his luck and ready to end his life but chose to read a book instead of shooting himself. Later in life he told many audiences, "I am certain that only a few of you realize we have a "kill switch" [i.e. referring to the ability to shut down all functions of a car upon exiting as a block against theft]. It gets pushed whenever someone puts us down or harshly criticizes our best efforts or makes fun of us...ridicule, scorn, slights, insults....they all hurt and often their toll is so great that the little confidence we had managed to build up disappears until we finally stop trying to do better.....Just don' let it happen to you anymore. Don't push any more kill switches when you are with your kids and never, never let anyone push yours....Never again give anyone permission to rain on your parade."
On this show you will hear the late Og Mandino, in his slow soft voice, share some of the keys in you keep moving forward regardless of the hard times in your life.
I love his wisdom. In one of his books he writes:
“How do I change?
If I feel depressed I will sing.
If I feel sad I will laugh.
If I feel ill I will double my labor.
If I feel fear I will plunge ahead.
If I feel inferior I will wear new garments.
If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice.
If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come.
If I feel incompetent I will think of past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be the master of my emotions.”

BOOK CLUB HIATUS until next week. Tune in as we discuss the next chapters in this wonderful book. We always have a lively discussion about the book and sometimes it brings up memories of our own live which we love to share with you.
I actually watched the movie for the first time this weekend. (this is Nina) It was a good movie but it centered more on the trial and not so much on the characters. You really don't get to know the characters in the movie like you do in the book and I found a lot of the important events in the book were not even metioned in the movie.
