     Escaping Oz - The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. Although what does the Land of Oz or the Wizard of Oz have to do with saving & investing? If Dorothy & Toto in that classic tale, were escaping poverty in the Land of Oz, the connection would be more obvious - but they weren't.

Jim is a Principal at Sentinel Consulting, and operates The Sentinal, an economic and financial web-site. In addition to being a frequent contributor to various publications on economic and financial topics, he's an Author of two books on "E$caping Oz".

Did you survive and thrive so that you'll be able to endure another devastating recession if it comes in the near future? Was your portfolio properly positioned to grow during the last 10 years? Are you properly positioned for the next decade? These are difficult questions and we'll be asking our guest to help us navigate through the choppy waters that we will face sometime in the future. So prepare your questions and join the conversation …

  • Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1005

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Chris Mosquera from Cape Canaveral, Florida, an adult survivor of child abuse and activist who's among NAASCA's newest family members. He's telling his story in public tonight for the first time. Born in Puerto Rico, Chris never knew his father. His mother was a German refugee from Hitler's Jewish extermination war who came across the pond as part of the Kinder Care boat lift from London. Mother and son moved to New York City when he was 3, where Chris grew up very poor and always struggling. He thinks his abuse started when he was about 6. He still struggles with any clarity, saying, "Amnesia is nature's way to protect the brain and the soul. I can name a few people in my head and a few incidents. But my memory is mostly in very small and fast flashes." Chris recalls most of his abusers were boy friends of his mother, who thought it was important for a fatherless boy to have father figures and male bonding. "I know there were many men who were fond of my young innocent body and mind. One was a doctor my mother worked for. One was a camp counselor at a sleep away camp. One was a boy friend who raised white mice," he explains. "I was jumped and ganged in the school shower locker rooms." Not long ago Chris discovered his memory problem was related to PTSD, and says, "I have recently come to grips and recognized the abuse issues after 50 years of keeping it inside." Now he's changing his life. "I want to tell the world how evil child sex abuse is and [about] male sex childhood abuse," says Chris. "Advocacy is healing!" he exclaims, concluding, "I will have done my job if one child does not have to spend 50 years dealing with this. It has cost me friends, career, my wife, my marriage, and my family. My life was stolen. I am a survivor and I will survive."
