In this episode you'll learn more about the Big Brothers and Big Sisters here in San Diego.
For more than 100 years nationally and 50 locally, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 7 through 18, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
The Big Brothers Big Sisters Mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better.
The Big Brothers Big Sisters Vision is for all children to achieve success in life.
Big Brothers Big Sisters AccountabilityBy partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community we are accountable for each child in our program achieving: Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships Avoidance of risky behaviors Educational success Our Programs Start Something
Here's the proof. National research has shown that positive relationships between Littles and their Bigs have a direct and measurable impact on children’s lives. By participating in our programs, Little Brothers and Sisters are:
more confident in their schoolwork performance able to get along better with their families 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs 27% less likely to begin using alcohol 52% less likely to skip school.
"The Sales Professional Network" is proud to sponsor and support the "Big Brothers/Big Sisters" "Summer Solstice". On this program we'll have Sue Gelb Director of Events introduce the "Summer Solstice" program and speak to the wide variety of events the Bucks County, PA chapter delivers throughout the Bucks County, PA area.
As an ambassador for the Bucks County, PA chapter I'm excited and honored to have Sue on our show to once again share why the "Big Brothers/Big Sisters" association is the #1 support enterprise for todays youth.

Manipulation is the skilled handling, controlling or using of something or someone. Manipulation has both positive and negative connotations. There are two foremost aspects of Manipulation, with positive and negative results: one has its root in deception; while the other has its root in the physical.
On this week’s episode, join Princess Fumi and Her Southern Warrior Sisters as they discuss how manipulation affects the following. We will also seek to answer "daring" questions surrounding its existence in our daily living:
How Do We Recognize Its Existence in Our Lives?
How Does It Affect Our Relationships?
How Do You Recognize When You Are Being a "Pawn"?
Is Manipulation the same as Deception?
Can You Be Spiritually Manipulated?
And lots more....
