Money and You Update, Radio and More

I have attended a number of Money and You Teleseminars and found them to be quite interesting, value packed and fun.  I even made some really good connections through them.  With this said, when I received this update earlier this afternoon, I decided to share it with you! 

MONEY & YOU UPDATE – October 14, 2008

1. “KEY CALLS WITH THE MASTERS” NOW MONEY & YOU RADIO

Over the past several months, we have been creating a new program structure to replace the teleconference structure of our Key Calls. We received many comments that our lines were overloaded, hearing clearly was an issue and participating from overseas could be difficult for some.

Our solution to this is Money & You Radio, a weekly broadcast on World Talk Radio, live from Studio A. Each week DC interviews some of the brightest people working to make a difference. Each guest will share with you keys to financial freedom and personal success – while adding tremendous value to humanity.

Topics include “entrepreneurship with heart”; money and finances; sales and marketing; people and organization.

This is a global show that will give you a glimpse of what is happening internationally in social entrepreneurship, business and education.

DC has been interviewing notable social entrepreneurs, business leaders, humanitarians and persons from all walks of life for decades. This Show is continuing a work of nearly 30 years of Uplifting Humanity’s Consciousness Through Business.

Join us on Money & You Radio this coming Tuesday as DC Cordova interviews Sharon Lechter

Tune into World Talk Radio, Studio A or bookmark our site at: http://www.moneyandyouradio.com

Sharon Lechter has built million-dollar businesses that have had a tremendous positive impact in the way that children, teens and adults are being educated and guided to success. She was the co-author and the organizational driving force behind the Rich Dad/Poor Dad series of books.

In this episode Sharon will share her real-life experiences in building businesses, working with teams, and having business and personal success.

Sharon will also share tips on how to empower children and young people — how to successfully communicate with them. Sharon’s generosity of spirit – and knowledge – will give the listeners tools that can be used immediately to accomplish results both in business and in personal relationships.

2. Recent Recordings

Scott Kelby’s First-ever Worldwide Photo Walk

Personal Testimonial:  In my (Roz Fruchtman) opinion… Anything Scott Kelby does has to be the greatest.  I know Scott since 2000 or 2001 and his live NYC seminars and books have changed my life from “just wishing TO just doing!”

Scott Kelby showed me the things I thought would take forever to learn could be accomplished with a few keystrokes, vision and a bit of learning.  That was all offered in that one seminar — for me.  I had the vision, I just did not know what to do with it.  That one Photoshop Seminar Tour changed my life forever.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

GROUNDBREAKING PARTICIPATION FOR THE FIRST-EVER SCOTT KELBY WORLDWIDE PHOTO WALK ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 23
5,500 Photographers – 241 Cities – 43 Countries – Participating on August 23

TAMPA, FL – August 14, 2008 – Scott Kelby and the National Association of Photoshop Professionals
(NAPP) are pleased to announce that as of today, 5,500 photographers from 241 cities in 43 countries have signed up to participate in Scott Kelby’s first-ever worldwide Photo Walk scheduled for Saturday, August 23. The Photo Walks are organized to celebrate the release of Scott Kelby’s latest book – The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 Book for Digital Photographers (an update to his earlier world’s bestselling book on Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom®).

Registration is free and open to all photographers – amateur to professional – from around the world. Photo Walk groups are limited to 50 participants in each city and advance registration is required. Sponsors of this global landmark event are NAPP
, Adobe , Wacom , CDW , Mpix , Peachpit , Epson , Kelby Training , and Photo Walk Pro .

A grand prize, valued at $5000, will be awarded to the single best overall photo of the day taken from all the Photo Walk locations. In addition, the best photo from the day, chosen by each local Photo Walk leader, will receive a copy of Kelby’s Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 Book for Digital Photographers. Prize details available at http://www.photoshopuser.com/photowalk/prizes.html

Kelby’s Photo Walk is a fun, social photography event where photographers get together for two hours, usually in a metropolitan area or a trendy section of a city, to walk around, shoot photos, and generally have fun with other photographers. Each Photo Walk has a local assigned leader that chooses the route of the walk and the ending place (a local restaurant, pub or café) where participates will look at each other’s photos from the walk and make new photography friends.

Friendship Day Blues, Or Feelings of Simple Neglect?

As an eCard designer/developer, perhaps I am more aware of which holidays are acknowledged and which are not.  I find it disturbing, to be quite honest in today’s day and age when the economy is faltering, people are losing their jobs, losing their homes, declaring bankruptcy and perhaps even worse.  The loneliness and isolation they must be feeling has to be quite unbearable.  (We are all somewhat affected – gas prices, food bills, no matter what we touch the price is higher and the quantities are smaller, for the same price no less.)

——————-
The one thing we should be able to count on is our friendships and relationships — Our priceless possessions.  True friendship is unconditional!
——————-

I am not even remotely implying that our friends do not care about us or would not be there for us — if we asked, and some even when we do not ask.  I for one, am blessed with a few good friends.  I also lost two girlfriends to Cancer many years ago who I would give anything to have one more day with them.  Friendship of the “unconditional” kind is extremely hard to find and some never experience it!  Be grateful if you have/are experiencing that kind of friendship!

What I am saying is that “we are NOT recognizing” our friends.  Life happens and we become too busy. It is not that we don’t care.  Life happens and “people” and things are falling between the “cracks of life.”

We need to say “Thank You for being there for me.  Thank You for being my friend. I Care about you. I Love You!”  I recognize the fact that it is not easy for all of us to say these things face-to-face or voice to voice!  Trust me, I know this!

eCards To The Rescue

What is the big deal in sending an unexpected eCard to show appreciation?  Don’t we have that much time to spare for our loved ones and those we care about!  Even acknowledging those we are not that thrilled with can turn things around.  Everyone needs and deserves a little kindness.

And no, it is not sour grapes that my Friendship eCards are not moving – at the time this entry is being written.  That IS what prompted the writing of this Blog entry!  It is still early in the day and I cater to a market worldwide so the time zones are different all over the world.  My point is people are not even searching for Friendship Day eCards.  It is one thing to visit an eCard web site and not buy or use their products or services, it is quite another when we are “not” even looking for them.

I would venture to bet that most people do not even know that today is National Friendship Day… We publicize all the negatives in our lives, but what about the positives.  What about the people and things we hold near and dear to us.  What about those special people we depend on to keep us grounded.  Do we really need to feel the guilt of neglect when someone is no longer with us?  I am sure we can all relate to this.  I know I can, I am not immune from guilt, however, these day I try to do what I can to avoid having to feel guilty or neglectful.  But I am not perfect!

Please let me share my own personal story of guilt…

A little more than two years ago I had the unpleasant experience of having the retina in my right eye detach.  This is scary stuff!  It happened in a split second while walking down the hallway in my apartment.  Thank God after all was said and done I am ok now.  I had an excellent doctor and surgeon.  God was good and all worked together to restore my eyesight.  MY POINT…

For a couple of months I was not able to see out of my right eye.  It was loaded with gas and what I saw could be compared to looking through wax paper into clouds.  It was not pleasant and more than a little scary — this I can attest to.

In the comfort and familiarity of my own home it was not as uncomfortable and scary as when I was out in the street walking – alone.  Outside in the bright sunlight (worse yet in the blackness of night)… I felt unbalanced and unsteady on my feet.  I was afraid to cross the street!  The worst yet was when I went into the grocery store I had trouble finding things.  Finally I realized “I had to ask for help up front upon entering the store — Otherwise I was ignored!”

I got an excellent glimpse into what some people live with each and every minute of each and every day.  My REAL POINT… My dearest aunt had developed macular degeneration in a time when no one knew what macular degeneration was.  There were no cures and she lived with it until the day she died!

MY GUILT is/was… I could have been a lot nicer to her by being there more — being more understanding and attentive!  I felt the most overwhelming sense of guilt during the time I was recuperating from my retina re-attachment surgery.  I prayed for her forgiveness.  My REAL POINT… why wait until it is too late!

Acknowledge your friends, family, loved ones and business associates  NOW… while there is still a chance.  Just because we are lucky enough not to walk in everyone else’s shows, does not mean that they are not having a hard time and need our support and encouragement, even if it is through an unexpected eCard demonstrating just how much we care and we DO think about them and we DO remember them.  What could be easier than that — Of course they need to be able to receive the eCard, but now-a-days everyone has access or knows someone who has access to an Internet connection.  The payoff of knowing you made someone happy is priceless!

Friendship Day should be everyday.  National Friendship Day is the day we “officially” acknowledge our friends – relatives are friends too – loved ones should be friends too – and business associates are friends too.  Even some who are not, why not acknowledge them anyway.  Who knows… special things happen when one is shown a little extra unexpected kindness.  As Dog The Bounty Hunter Says — “Mercy Given is Mercy Received!” Or, it is “Those Who Give Mercy Receive Mercy!”  Well you get the point!
