Many cities are plagued with chronic unemployment, which makes urban areas ripe for crime and violence. This is what drove security specialist Vince Rose to run for office. He is running for Alderman of Chicago's 7th Ward, an area known for high crime and drug trafficking. Vince's plan is to bring in manufacturers and create jobs. Entreprenuers Pleasant Stephens and Bob Gibsonexplain their intention to expand their businesses into the seventh ward. A clothing manufacturing plant and a solar panel manufacturing plant could bring steady employment to Chicago's South side. They discuss their vision of expanding these operations nationwide and opening factories in other economically depressed cities. Could the solution to urban poverty and it's resulting drug and crime epidemic be in our own hands?
Cindy Carter is President and Co-Founder of the Cancer Support Foundation -- a non-profit organization providing advocacy and some assistance financially to patients with cancer. The assistance is for non-medical expenses. Advocacy services are provided for medical care.
Cindy will be discussing several challenges cancer patients are currently facing.as they travel through treatment, hopefully to survival.
We'll be talking about issues such as the need for food delivery, transportation, and the problems of getting energy assistance - especially for electric service.
The Cancer Support Foundation is a state-wide service organization, run entirely by volunteer. Donations are requested. With no paid salaries, approximately 90% of all donations go out to the cancer patients to help them maintain a rood over their head, food on the table and utility services along with transportation expenses to and from treatment.

A bi-weekly opportunity to explore ways to live your dreams! FREE YOURSELF TO BE YOURSELF! TONIGHT'S TOPIC: FLOW: Over the last few shows we have talked about the importance of "speaking life unto your life" and Earl Nightingale's "Strangest Secret". Tonight, I want to continue the conversation by introducing the concept of "Flow". I first heard the term nearly 20 years ago when a college professor of Russian descent, published a book of the same title. In it he shared his research on high performers where he discovered that the best performers seemed to enter into a zone in which their optimal performance was guaranteed. He called this state, FLOW. Over the years, I have noticed that many of us are in a state of flow but the question I am posing is whether or not that flow is leading us to our goals. Join me as we create the space for you to FREE YOURSELF TO BE YOURSELF!
