Tom Gagliano debuts his latest book on parenting. Thomas Gagliano, author of the best seller, “The Problem Was Me”, a motivational speaker and respected leader in the field of self-help therapy has just authored his second book: Don’t Put Your Crap in Your Kid’s Diaper (Amazon CreateSpace, August, 2015). Thomas challenges parents to take ownership of and deal with their own crap thereby decreasing its negative impact on their children and families. His advice is dispensed with humor and examples from his own experience as a son and a father.
In Don’t Put Your Crap in Your Kid’s Diaper, Gagliano opens with a simple admission; When we [parents] think we’re doing our best, it can be unpleasant to hear someone say we can do better. Parenting may be the most difficult responsibility any of us will undertake. Even our best parenting efforts have distortions and can be improved. This book will help parents recognize which areas of their parenting skills are strong and which areas need attention as well as giving parents the tools to keep them on track.
Let’s face it; families today are met with challenges that generations before were not. More frequently both parents must work, having less time than ever to nurture their own intimate relationships and to parent. This often leads to grandparents and extended family members becoming primary caregivers. One-third of grandparents today are asked to step into the role of parent. Additionally, electronic entertainment by way of smartphones, video games and computers occupy much of our children’s attention. Families have become disconnected.

This episode is dedicated to our new campaign that we're calling Put Up or Shut Up!
To those who say we should be taking care of our own before we help refugees. Now's your chance! Put your money where your mouth is. We're going to share GoFundMe campaigns as well as links to various charities and opportunities to help veterans and the homeless.
We have our own concerns about admitting refugees into this country and we expressed them last week. We just feel that the majority of people claiming that they'd rather help Americans over refugees are full of it, so we're calling them on it. We will not be advocating for either side, we're just calling attention to the causes these people can support if they really feel that way.
You can stay in the crappy or do these three tips to putting your best face forward today. What is your choice, because it is yours and only yours to decide. We are here to get you motivated!
To be as successful as possible, your business needs an online presence. But where should you put your time and effort to build one? Is having only a website enough or do you need to be in the social media game to get the most out of your online presence? And if you dabble in social media but have no website, are you able to capture everyone who might be interested in what you offer?
In this episode, Bill, Steve and Rick discuss the important of websites and social media profiles for creating a strong internet presence for your business.

in Self Help
Each week we talk about ways to live a more peaceful and successful life. This week is no different. As the US prepares to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday we decided to take a look at how the holidays create unnecessary stress that really become overwhelming to many people. For a holiday with a name that actually tells you to give thanks, so many people really forget to do just that.
Sit back and listen in as we talk about Thanksgiving from a standpoint of getting through the holidays with gratitude and love in your heart rather than stress and acid indigestion!
As always thanks so much for listening!
