    2/10/16 w/guest Amy Haimerl

    in Books

    Today's guest is jounalist Amy Haimerl author of "Detroit Hustle."


    About our guest and her book:


    Journalist Amy Haimerl and her husband had been priced out of their Brooklyn neighborhood. Seeing this as a great opportunity to start over again, they decide to cash in their savings and buy an abandoned house for $35,000 in Detroit, the largest city in the United States to declare bankruptcy.


    As she and her husband restore the 1914 Georgian Revival, a stately brick house with no plumbing, no heat, and no electricity, Amy finds a community of Detroiters who, like herself, aren't afraid of a little hard work or things that are a little rough around the edges. Filled with amusing and touching anecdotes about navigating a real-estate market that is rife with scams, finding a contractor who is a lover of C.S. Lewis and willing to quote him liberally, and neighbors who either get teary-eyed at the sight of newcomers or urge Amy and her husband to get out while they can, Amy writes evocatively about the charms and challenges of finding her footing in a city whose future is in question. Detroit Hustle is a memoir that is both a meditation on what it takes to make a house a home, and a love letter to a much-derided city.

    Conversations with the Womb

    in Family

    I will be speaking with bestselling author, doula, and founder of the Joy In Birthing Foundation Giuditta Tornetta. She just released the highly anticipated follow up to Painless Childbirth. 
    Tornetta’s second book promises to be as intensive as the first and delivers with the same in-depth knowledge and compassionate guidance she has become known for worldwide. 
    Tornetta’s first book encouraged mothers to go on a transformational journey through pregnancy and birth to obtain the birthing experience they deserved and desired. Now Conversation with the Womb is inspiring women to use their creative feminine power to awaken to their full potential, and act as co-creative agents to manifest the life they covet.

    “With this book we were looking to utilize the techniques used in Painless Childbirth to encompass the many phases of womanhood, not just pregnancy and birth,” writes Tornetta.  “We’ve taken all the knowledge generated from our series of international workshops and condensed it into one book.” 

    Fully-loaded with hands-on exercises and heart-felt stories Conversations With The Womb goes beyond your run of the mill self-help book and elevates itself as a truly transformational experience. The author’s passion is that contagious.

    It is with this grand capacity for imagination Tornetta envisions the rediscovery of the immense creative force of the womb.

    CNN Hero & bestselling author Robin Lim writes of Tornetta’s new book, "[Giuditta] rendered her trailblazing idea into a book that is at once practical, and a wildly esoteric page-turner."

    It's Tax Time. What You Need To Know About Income Tax Identity Theft

    in Technology

    Join Jim Blue and Steve Weisman in a discussion on how to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of income tax identity theft.


    It's tax time and we all know that income tax identity theft is a major problem.  The most common way that income tax identity theft occurs is when the identity thief files an income tax return using his or her victim’s Social Security number along with a counterfeit W-2 that indicates a large refund is due.


    In his most recent article in USA Today, Steve wrote "According to the General Accountability Office (GAO), the IRS paid out 5.8 billion dollars in bogus refunds to identity thieves for the tax year 2013 and, according to the GAO the real figure is probably significantly higher because of the difficulty of knowing how much income tax fraud remains undetected.
    But it is not as bad as you think. It is worse".


    Steve Weisman is a lawyer, a professor at Bentley University and one of the country's leading experts in scams and identity theft. He writes the daily blog scamicide.com, where he provides daily update information about the latest scams. His new book is Identity Theft Alert.

    Sometimes We Find A Calling We Are Compelled To Answer by Ron Stelle

    in Entrepreneur

    Best selling author and motivational speaker Ron Stelle says, “sometimes in life we find a calling we are compelled to answer.” Through gentle persuasion by his wife to write, the flow turned on and became a major waterfall. 


    His latest work, Xtreme Options, is a fast paced Detective Murder Mystery. One of his books is in treatment for a screenplay, and his latest book is going to be featured on the Reuters Marquee in Times Square New York in March.


    His first novel is about growing up in the sixties and his life was pretty much never the same after that. Ron writes with a passion driven by a desire to share his stories and is very, very good at bringing the reader into the world he creates. 


    Ron also spent several decades in the Navy, and faced death multiple times. It was events like that which taught him that life is worth pursuing and that he has value


    While Ron continues to write, he also lectures to help people obtain their dream. His point is to not let life get in the way of your destiny. Stay focused and never give up on your dream. 


    All right, Ron is going to going to share his motivations with us on our pursuing our own dreams on this episode of Revenue Chat with Tony DUrso.

    CAN A CHURCH GIVE OUT CONDOMS?

    in Religion

    How should the church or Christians do outreach? Is the goal to "show LOVE" or show Christ? Are those terms mutually exclusive? Is the goal to be relatable, cutting edge or relevant or a witness to those who are lost? What is the purpose condemnation or a ministry of reconciliation? What if the person doesn't smoke cigarettes but instead is addicted to marijuana, cocaine or meth; do you give them a nickel bag instead of Newports? What if the person doesn't need condoms but is addicted to going to the strip club, do you give them a stack of $1 Bills? WHERE DO YOU DRAW THE LINE? In this show we discuss the biblical precedence that Jesus set with outreach ministry when dealing with those who he encountered in the streets. God is not going to "tell us to do something" that is opposite than HIS WORD. TUNE IN and call in on Tuesday Feb. 9th at 12 PM EST. for Break Bread Online bible study, where unlike Sway the bible does "have the answers", we just need to read it in context to find truth.
