Melinda Rae welcomes Ciara Elle to the Girls in Power Radio Show
The self-described “Go Getter” credits her personal and professional success to her spiritual faith, great sense of humor, and constant commitment to not only survive a childhood filled dysfunction, and disadvantage, but to also become a living example that “one’s future is by no means limited by their past.” Ciara does not take light of the fact that she was born January 15th,she shares this birthday with late great Dr. Martin Luther King jr. “The fact that I share the same birthday of a man of such statue, give me the hope I need to succeed.” Ciara currently resides in the metropolitan Atlanta area. Now, she not only shares her birthday with Atlanta’s King; she also shares his birthplace. Perhaps this was part of her destiny.
Melinda Rae interviews Howard Crampton Jr. during this episode of the Girls in Power Radio Show. This is taken from Howards website from Howard's website.... Do you want more control over your emotions to improve your relationships and life situations? The quality of our lives is determined by the quality of the emotions we experience regularly! We can blame external circumstances all we want, but when it comes down to it, there’s a level of responsibility we must accept in every situation – Our thoughts, feelings, and actions. Moreover, it’s the meaning that we attribute to our situations that makes them worthwhile or regrettable.

Melinda Rae, founder of Girls in Power, is interviewing Molly Snow in this episode..... Melinda invited Molly because they share similar passions for empowering and inspiring young girls.
"Molly joins Girls on the Run of Los Angeles County with 12 years of experience helping non-profit organizations build and improve fundraising programs. Her diverse industry experience includes producing complex, multi-day fundraising events (such as the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day and California AIDS Ride), organizational growth planning, project management and peer-to-peer fundraising. After hearing her 10-year-old niece, a two-season GOTR participant, loudly and proudly declare her personal “awesomeness”, something clicked and she knew where she wanted to focus her attention and experience. Bringing an intense belief in GOTR’s mission and a deep desire to see girls develop into confident, healthy individuals she is excited to be a part of this incredible, dedicated team."
Anea Bogue’s greatest passion is to see girls and women recognize the power they hold in their minds, bodies and spirits.
Anea believes,"If the adolescent girl were guided to recognize, celebrate and live the power that grows exponentially inside her as she enters womanhood and with each year that passes, she would likely give herself permission to honor that power, honor the journey she is on and most importantly, honor herself."
Most recently, Anea and her friend and business partner, Shelli Wright, are on a mission to improve the relationship girls and women have with their bodies… one tampon at a time.
But Anea and Shelli think differently. “At the most basic level, the menstrual cycle allows for the continuation of our species. Beyond that, it enables a woman to tap into her many and varied strengths. Why should anyone be embarrassed about that? When girls and women understand their cycle as a powerful force of nature, they begin to see themselves as the valuable, important beings they are,” says Anea Bogue, M.A., an expert with over twenty years of experience in the field of girls’ and women’s self-esteem and empowerment.
Anea joins the Girls in Power Radio Show again and she will share more details about “TrueMoon” and its mission.

Paul Baskin is known as The Job Mentor because he has spent a lifetime helping others become better critical thinkers in their approach to attaining their career goals and meeting their job search challenges.
A single conversation with a wise man is better than ten years of study. ~Chinese Proverb
What Paul discovered was that employers really do want to hire the right person. Often the right person is right in front of them, only the employer can't recognize their talent because of the approach taken by the candidate in trying to land the job opportunity.
There is much to learn about Paul and how his experience in corporate American can benefit the weary and discouraged job seeker or career minded individual. I am thrilled to connect with Paul again, and have him share his insight, wisdom and knowledge with you.
Turn your ear, and listen to the words of the wise. Apply your heart to my teaching. For it is a pleasant thing if you keep them within you, if all of them are ready on your lips.By Solomon, from Proverbs

Bob has over 25 years of writing experience for the Christian market. His writing career began, in the 1980s, when he worked at a Christian publishing company in their book department. Since then, he has worked as a full-time staff writer for two international ministries and was once named "Christian Writer of the Year," San Antonio, Texas, by the American Christian Writers Association.

"Sandra Dee Robinson has spent nearly all of her life in front of a camera: as an actor (including Another World, Sunset Beach, Bold and the Beautiful, General Hospital, Days of Our Lives, Two and a Half Men, Criminal Minds, Secret Life of an American Teenager and TV movies) and as a TV host and product spokesperson. You might think then, talking directly into camera or speaking on a stage would seem like a natural thing for her to do. Far from it! “I was extremely shy but comfortable behind a character (acting). When people began to ask me to support a charity on stage, or sell a product, even be interviewed and they said, ‘Just be yourself!’ I was so lost.” Sandra remembers shaking uncontrollably, forgetting her words, and nearly passing out from fear before having to speak! She spent years and thousands of dollars in classes and with coaches all the while continually pushing through the pain and sometimes humiliation of these presentations. As it usually happens with persistence, there came a day of a breakthrough; exhaustion and a funny circumstance onstage of an infomercial shoot had Sandra unexpectedly enjoying being “herself” on a stage. She was relaxed, having fun, and getting her message across in her own unique way. Suddenly, moments of her training experiences came back to her and it all finally started to make sense!
