[…] Know why employees resist change in the workplace? If not, explore these 12 reasons. Unfortunately, employees anywhere will not all respond to change with joy and a punch into the air saying, ‘Brilliant, yet another organizational change, I’m very excited to be a part of it!’ Given that change is here to stay, do…

Have you ever searched for what you can get for free? I’m not talking about anything unsubstantial. What if I told you, that you could get something of more value for free? Well you can! Just recently I had been on a quest of sorts to find what I can get for free. I was…
Spending must be a conscious activity What do I mean by that? Have you ever said the following at the end of the week or month: “Where on earth did my money go?” I know that I’ve said that! The idea behind conscious spending is to break the habit of spending whenever you ‘feel’ like…
Mourning Prince: “Even when he was sweating he wasn’t working; he was channeling. Spirit, magic, wonder, awe, grace, the holy spirit — he was both a master and a vessel. You could work hard all of your life and never be his kind of genius.”
It is unfortunate and untimely death of an wonderful artist. My condolences goes out to his family, staff and fans alike.
We will keep him alive through his music.

There comes a time in life when everyone can use a helping hand. This is how I started giving back to the community when I lived in Texas for a number of years. I partnered with Dallas Police department gang unit (my son’s basketball coach was over the organization) we had the same vision about reaching our teens before they get caught up with the wrong crowd.
I then partnered with a former NFL player and hosted a back to school event at his barber shop, which hence the reason for me starting to reach out to our community for support. I know you are reading this and stating that the kids are not out of school yet! Yes,I am aware I have a 16 year old currently in school as well, but waiting until the last minute is not my style.
This is week one idea and goal:
Get a large Ziploc bag for storage which helps keeps items from spilling and so forth. Listed below you will find ideas for your Ziploc bag geared toward adults but don’t forget about the kids.
Hand-Warmers – we put a couple packs in, especially during the winter, but even for those chilly evenings in the spring/summer/fall these would be very welcome. We buy a pack of 40 at Costco for around $15 ($.38/pk) & then we have these on hand for blessing bags as well as camping, winter sports, etc.
Bag of Quarters – These are nice to include for washing clothes at the laundromat (we just put them in a snack-size Ziploc bag to keep them contained in a smaller area
Bottle of Water – Mini water bottles work great so they don’t take up too much space or if you can fit a regular size water bottle
Band-Aids – these are something that may often be needed but may not be something they would be able to spend money on or think about having.
Baby Wipes – a small pack of baby wipes would be a great one to include to help with feeling clean & fresh
Hand Sanitizer – another great option to help them feel cleaner
Wash Cloth – buy an inexpensive wash cloth to include.
The dollar store is a great resource for this idea. That’s my goal this week is to have them prepared and ready to give out either at back to school, shelters or the homeless.
Have a blessed day!
Before urban areas exploded in anger over police shootings, there was talk of reforming our criminal justice system. Civil rights activist Michelle Alexander really kicked off that conversation with her book “The New Jim Crow,” a scholarly look at the failed drug war and the impact that mass incarceration has had on communities of color…
As we know there are people that have committed a crime did there time and now to go back to crime due to not being able to get a job! That’s one thought, some re-offend because that is their conscious decision to harm someone or property.
How many companies are missing out on good employees because someone has made a mistake,I’m not talking about sex crimes, violent to non violent? As we know blacks and Latinos are the most arrested and given longer sentences. Fun fact the state of Texas companies aren’t hiring people because they were arrested not convicted (there is a difference) of a violent or non-violent crime. How are people suppose to not re-offend when they can’t even get a warehouse or call center job? Jail is not a form of rehabilitation.
The recidivism rate is outrages and there should be guidelines, once a person has shown that he or she can be a contributing factor in their community why is it still held against them?
I must also state I am in law enforcement with a degree in criminal justice and have seen people that learned the first time and never go back through the system but there is always the latter. Judging people is what this country does best no matter the platform.
Should companies be able to remove the box on their job applications asking if someone has been arrested? If so, why or why not? Or should it be case by case basis? The CEO isn’t making the hiring decisions it’s the manager making maybe $9-20/hr depending on the job and the business. Another fun fact did you know companies also get a kick back from the government when they do hire someone with a criminal record?
