Greetings To All,
In this holiday season with nearly a year since a new American president being installed I am reminded of a saying, "it's a matter of when". In this blog we're really talking about economics here OPENLY and without hesitation. As unemployment numbers go up, banks shifting their focus away from small businesses, the slicing of credit to consumers, creative financing options for all of us waning and every other type of indication that things are really falling apart--I wanted us to focus on some other thoughts as we are struggling through this economic maze in search of something that will stimulate our personal/business funds.
Clearly stated the economy of America was established long before the country took shape and became a Republic and after years of infighting as well as clearing its borders of real or imagined tyranny it finally became the budding NEW WORLD that its origin intent was set for. I would suggest that we are back at that point again but with alot more people, ideas, cultures, religions and such than what was established over 200 years ago. I would contend that we are now at that juncture where new ideas, cultures, systems, thoughts are now being introduced with the cultural canon of inclusion being at its base.
As more and more people are learning to develop SYSTEMS by which to do business old models of "haves" and "have nots" are falling. The field of business where once it seemed to be about "hustling" to make it is now an accepted term now used called "insulated economies". The terminology has changed because the thinking to determine how business is done has changed. So, new "economists", "business minds", "entrepreneurs" are taking matters into their own hands and are beginning to turn their economies into systems of exchange where both money and services along with products are the means to survival.
It has always been this type of movement however, in this day and age where whole countries are falling because of the lack of REAL change for the betterment of everyone it has become a world filled with the destiny to take charge of the communities that matter. Therefore, if the community that you live in should be safe instead of paying for police to protect it--people are learning to protect themselves; in communities where there is a shortage of food and the grocery stores are selling less than nutritional value--people are beginning to start buying clubs or growing their own and exchanging with one another; where there is shortage the people are responding out of NEED.
So, it has never been a matter of HOW when it comes down to it.....IT'S ALWAYS BEEN A MATTER OF WHEN!
Join us again for PART II when we'll go deeper into this topic with in depth interviews of who's doing what and how you can build something for yourself too.

As we're winding down for the 1st half of the season I wanted to get a chance to thank everyone publicly especially the fans and most notably our co-host, "Miss Tonye". It's not everyday that you get to do what you love and with the people who love you most and for that I am grateful and thankful.
A few short months ago when we started back in the world of radio we didn't know what to expect and here it is a little over six months and we're boasting a worldwide audience that touches people from ALL seven continents. Who would have thought that you could reach the world from your living room ten years ago?
As the world gets smaller because of modern technology it would seem that we would all grow a little closer and that would make all the difference, however it seems that more than ever we're all looking for a little breathing room. To that I say, "MAKE SPACE IN YOUR MIND FOR YOU!"
The mind is the only place that if you truly choose to retreat it can happen! It is where dreams can come true before reality takes its place and its the one place no one can take from you. I am reminded of a friend who was once incarcerated and he told me that he really learned alot about connecting internally when the world was crumbling around him. To that I say GOOD ADVICE and I'm sharing it with you.
So, my friends it's that season to take time out for yourself and be all you can be in the mind first and the rest will follow!
BE WELL AND HAVE A SAFE HOLIDAY!
