Jim and I go way back. We've met up in several states on several occasions. His mind works a lot different than mine. He's an intelligent, analytical guy, while most of us (listener of this show any way) are not.
I remember when I made the switch, mentally, from salesman to a CEO it was not easy. Hell, who am I kidding? It still isn't easy for me to go through the numbers. Hell, at this point, I can't even find a CPA to do my damn taxes. But that's a whole other episode.
Listen in, as we talk business, numbers and sales. You'll be glad you did. There's a lot to be learned from JPF.
My Dragonfly was written by Kathy Zengolewicz and represents the son she lost in September of 2012. Kathy’s son Walter died from a drug overdose at the age of 33. Kathy explains in her book how the loss of her child, his unexpected and sudden death affected her and her family. She explains how she dealt with the grief caused by his death and how she found a way to get through the dark days of mourning and the depression that threatened to take her down to a place filled with darkness and despair. Kathy will share with you how she got through the anguish and heartache and discovered how to find the will to live life to the fullest with the help of her Dragonfly.
Twice Scott Wolfe has faced this giant of a man. Twice he's barely escaped with his life. If Scott ever hopes to uncover the corruption that is shaping the free world, a confrontation with his most dangerous adversary is unavoidable.
Even though Scott has gone underground, it doesn't mean he's alone. He has reconnected with Kathrin, the golden-haired beauty who was with him when it all began. He'd long dreamed of the reunion. But now that Monkey Wrench and Gretel are reunited, something doesn't quite add up. Does he risk the blossoming romance to pry deeper? What if she is a danger to him? Will his emotions leave him blindsided by the truth?
Scott keeps driving deeper into the inner workings of the conspiracy, further from his support and closer to danger. Is it too soon for Scott to be on his own? That question might be answered before he's ready for it.

The first verse in the third chapter of the old Testament book of Ecclesiastes states "To everything there is a there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven." Among the 27 purposes listed is a "...time to laugh." And so it is for audiences exposed to the comedy styling of the fabulous MizT. From her trademark opening dance routine (the girl can 'jam'), to her infectious laugh, MizT knows how to bring "the funny" with purpose, ferocity and freshness. MizT is an experienced comedienne now getting more national notice with her debut comedy album, "Back at 'Ya Lord!" Coming soon will be a DVD version of that hilarious CD.
She has also won critical acclaim, being chosen runner-up as the "Comedian of The Year" during the 2010 Texas Gospel Music Excellence awards. And she has been notified that she's a nominee in the 2013 "Comedian of The Year" category by the Gospel Sounds Radio Network. Until fairly recently, MizT's "side-splitting" comedy routines was shared primarily with folks in Texas...from Dallas to Houston to the capital city of Austin. But she is a regional star no more...becoming a comic force across the U-S with the release of "Back at 'Ya Lord." Clips from MizT's comedy album are now airing on Internet radio stations across America and overseas in London. Prepare to be blessed as we discuss her book and comedy. Laughter is good for the soul. Remember God loves you.
With UK super-middleweight James DeGale (20-1, 14KO’s) just days away from his first world title bid against the American Andre Dirrell (24-1, 16 KO’s) in Boston, Massachusetts on May 23rd,
"A title means everything. It completes you as a fighter. That's the top of the food chain in this sport, and that's the pedestal we're all trying to reach - world champion. Everybody wants to be a world champion. The greats had it and now we want it. It would mean more for my city, my family and my friends, and it's something I'll always be able to look back it. It would put me in the record books for life.
"Andre says the belt doesn't mean anything to him in the fight - well, the belt means everything to me and more. I am here to make history and it doesn't happen without that title.
"I could win on Saturday night and retire a happy man - that's how much I want to beat Andre Dirrell. But when I do win that title, I am going for the rest of the belts, creating a lasting legacy for my country, my fans and myself.
