  • Empowering Nurses through Career Coaching

    in Health

    Today we have the pleasure of speaking with Nurse Emma Soy. Nurse Soy has her Bachelors of Science in nursing as well as her Master’s degree. As a graduate of North Park University and Liberty University, she carries 25 years of experience as a nurse. She began her career working in pediatrics and then began to expand her knowledge with various positions in the nursing field. After being exposed to different experiences, she became an advocate for patient care initiatives. She used her passion to provide top quality patient care and motivation to help fellow nurses develop more skills, Emma then began to focus on becoming a nursing career coach.  Although she was able to observe her patient’s health status improve, she gained much appreciation getting the opportunity to witness her fellow nurses improve on their clinical knowledge as well as develop better techniques so that they could become better nurses.

    National Back Farmers Association Helps Homeowners Become Food Producers

    in Women

    When it comes to government funding to grow food on your property, the difference between those who get it and those who don't get it boils down to one word: Farming. An urban garden might produce food that the property owner eats, feeds a family and even sells to others, but as the founders of the National Association of Black Farmers explain, gardening is a hobby. Farming is a business, and for those homeowners who want to grow food, they can tap into the many financial resources available from the Deparment of Agriculture if only they refer to their food growing activities as "farming."  Empowerment begins with land ownership and the ability to provide ones own food , clothing, and shelter. Today we learn from Dr. John Wesley and Kara Boyd how to capitalize on the power we have in our hands right now, to become producers and sellers of food.
