    ViSalus' 2 Star Ambassador Madiba Thompson

    in Business

    Neil Haley, The Total Tutor host of the Simply G Radio show, interviewed Madiba Thompson to find out about his business and his physical transformation.
    Thompson, a 2-Star Ambassador for Visalus, is a prospecting, recruiting and personal development coach in the home business industry. He worked hard on a physical transformation that also helped him grow professionally and financially.

    In the interview, Thompson explained how he went from being a single father of four who was flat broke to making life-changing income in just 8 short months thanks to The Visalus Challenge.

    His latest 90-day challenge, which Thompson also discussed on the show, has taken things to the next level. He hired a personal trainer and, thanks to this move, now has an accountability partner. According to Thompson, this helps him stay focused on reaching his goals.

    Thompson said he believes in the great leadership in Visalus, especially as they continue to improve the messaging. He is also pumped about the new Challenge and is especially about Project 10, a program that helps a person reach his or her goals 10 pounds at a time. This is the magic number. When people reach their goal they will help a child who is struggling with their weight.

    During the discussion, Thompson also boasted that he is excited about launch of Visalus events in Germany and Austria and explained what it is like to work with Vimillionaire GJ Reynolds.

    "GJ has tremendous integrity," Thompson said. "He always is a man of his word. He has been around Visalus for years and is here for the long run. Not only does he value the people he works with, but he is also fun to be around."

    " The Revolution that Nelson Mandela dedicated his life to achieving so many years ago has not yet been completed!  Nelson Mandela was nothing less than the pre-eminent strategist, moral guide and military commander of the forces that attempted to carry out that Revolution.  He played his role - and what a tremendous role he played!

    "A King, a Lion, a people; MLK, Madiba, and the Lambs of Uganda"

    in Culture

    I find it baffling that human beings are unable, and unwilling, to remember to love one another, and to "do unto others..." in today's world.

    On this broadcast, I will speak about the legacies or Dr. King, Madiba, Gandhi, and other gentle, powerful, audacious human beings for whom doing what was RIGHT, was a "no-brainer"!

    And, as usual, we welcome your calls, thoughts, opinions!  Be sure to call in at Guest Call In: (760) 283-5125!!!

    Our Journey With Madiba Nelson Mandela

    in News

    What a man! Meet the people who influenced the evolution of Madiba Nelson Mandela. With a life so rich, so full - 95 years - any attempt to single out a moment or an experience or any one stop along his remarkable journey as the stand alone of who Madiba is robs that person, defrauds that cause, and bars that observer from the wealth of a grand life - one from which we are all otherwise easily enriched. A tribute.

    The Real Deal Bible Study-Honoring Pres Mr. Nelson Mandela "Madiba"

    in The Bible

      To the people of South Africa on the loss of one of their greatest gifts to us all. Sent to prison by our CIA, he went on to become President, AND a friend to the United States, when others in his position would have sent over an ill-tempered South African death squad for payback. We salute Nelson Mandela on his achievements, great and small.  To all my African brothers and sisters and those in the diaspora.  My deepest condolences. My heart is very heavy today and these word come to mind.   "Whether a man really loves God can be determined by the love he bears towards his fellow man".  One incredible man that changed the World. ~The one who links us to all who suffer.  The Real Deal Bible Study.  Remembers President Nelson Mandela once said "We don't want our chains comfortable, we want them removed." Now his chains have been removed and he has joined our ancestors. May his spirit for liberation live on in us! 

    The Mandela family is in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.  Mr. Mandela fought for freedoms and equality that changed the face of South Africa and the world. We can all learn from his extraordinary journey.   

    We Love you MOTHER AFRICA and OUR PRAYERS ARE WITH  YOU...God Bless Africa!!!

    Thank you for giving us your Madiba !!!
