SORT BY Relevancy
Purchasing is not yet widely perceived as a premier league profession; certainly not when compared to, say, marketing, law, investment banking or entrepreneurship. But continued efforts by leading companies to exploit the power of effective purchasing have given Procurement a more important role in the corporate theatre.
The above statement was made by Sigi Osagie author of Procurement Mojo: Strengthening the Function and Raising It's Profile
What makes it interesting is the fact that there has been no shortage of discussions on procurement from the standpoint of its emerging strategic importance to the need for procurement professionals to finally get their seat at the executive table.
In yet another unique look into the rapidly changing world of procurement and what it means to not only those in the profession but business, I am pleased to welcome to the show Sigi Osagie.
Today's Show: Talking (or not talking) about Money
Ephesians 4:15 tells us that we are to speak the truth in love. Ordinarily we’d interpret a verse like that to have relevance when we’re approaching someone about a potential conflict. But regarding finances, I have come to know it also as a directive that is particularly relevant to the second part of the verse which tells us why?: So that “we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ”.
What I have experienced in my own life and with countless people I have worked with over the years is the interesting stronghold that Satan gains in people’s lives by convincing them to keep secrets about money. The secrets can be small like not being completely honest about how much something cost or larger like not telling your spouse that you lost your job or your life savings in a bad investment.
This week on Financial Grace Radio we’ll look at different scenarios for how to talk about money with various people in your life, from call-centre operators at the bank, to your spouse, children, boss, financial advisor, friends, etc.

What Is Control?
People crave respect. They want to be accepted for who they are in reality, rather than having to pretend to meet someone else’s criteria. When treated as an inferior, they react badly. When they feel they have to pretend, living as a picture of what another wants rather than as the person they actually are, they slowly dissolve their own identity. Some become lost and never rediscover who they were. Others deteriorate for a while, but eventually hit a point of frustration that leads to defiance, anger, and rebellion. Yet others live between those extremes.
Picture the lion or tiger in a cage snarling and slapping at the tamer making them jump through hoops and put on a show. They show their anger, but ultimately comply because they do not wish to receive punishment, and they enjoy receiving reward. The award is not equal to the freedom they once had, but over time they submit themselves to captivity and the morsels handed by the one who controls them. The whip hurts; the morsels are tasty; compliance results. At least for some of the big cats. Others likely never yield to the control of the tamer. Maybe others do for a while, but finally have enough and fight back.
Who Is the Controller?
One reason that controlling people often claim that they are controlled is that when they do not get what they want, they blame the other person. If he wants more lovemaking and she does not provide it, he views her as controlling him through sex and that may be the case. However, the difference in one who really is a controller and one who is being controlled is whether one allows the other to be who he or she truly is.
In the story that began this article, the husband controlled. He had so beaten his wife down with his arguing, intensity, and sense of self-righteousness that she had long since come to believe herself invalid.

Kevan Glover grew up in Buffalo, New York as the eldest of four
children. He proved early on to be a leader and motivator amongst
his family, his peers, and on the basketball court. On a road trip with
friends to Charlotte, he fell in love with the city for its growth
potential and blossoming social scene, and moved there
With so much involvement in the Carolina’s entertainment scene, it
only made sense to tap into the online social scene, as well. Kevan
developed TalkofNC.com TalkofSC.com, regionally-specific social
media sites that act as networking tools, social forums, classifieds,
business directories, and current news outlets. From there sprang
Talk of NC and SC models, a place online for aspiring models in
the area to gain exposure.
Mayor Anthony Foxx
Proclaimed every 2nd Saturday in December as Queen City Awards Day.
From there, Kevan self funded the Konnected Tour, a 12 city tour
with 12 di?erent artists, which now has its own publication,The
Konnected Magazine, where Kevan is the editor-in-chief.
In addition to focusing on the growth of his various enterprises,
Kevan is now turning his attention to charity events (of which Talk of
NC has hosted many) for the homeless and children in need. Kevan’s
investment in his family (he is a husband and father of two young
girls) and his community, combined with his ability to raise funding,
mobilize the community, and organize successful events makes him
unstoppable in his mission to bring positive change in the Carolinas.
His vision has grown into 13 states now which he host charity events,
parties and more.

San Juan Capistrano, CA – Whether your retirement is just around the corner or 30 years away, a sound investment strategy can get you moving in the right direction toward a bright financial future. But retirement is about more than just your investments.
While most certified financial planners focus on the big picture, according to Angela Grillo, it’s the details that are what’s most important. Angela is the founder of South County Financial Planning, a fee-only financial planning firm. Since 2008, Angela has helped thousands of clients from all income levels coordinate their finances with their life goals.
“Everyone should have a financial plan done at least once in their lifetime, even for people who don’t have a lot of assets,” says Angela. “Even one conversation is enough to get them to start thinking about what will work out for them best.”
Before embarking on a career in financial planning, Angela had been a computer programmer. Today, Angela’s clients tend to be engineers, whom many financial planners consider to be the most difficult and demanding clients.
“If I can’t explain how the software arrived at certain figures, they won’t believe me,” says Angela. “I don’t have any difficulty with that because I’m the same way.”
Angela also works with a number of families who have children with special needs. As the mother of a 19-year-old autistic son, Angela can better assist these families, who often struggle with greater living expenses from the fees and costs for different therapies when the child is younger.
“It takes someone with personal experience to understand what the family of a disabled child is going through,” says Angela. “You spend a lot of money in their early years. I can help them head in the right direction."
