Changing the way we think about the homeless and the hurting

Most of us are concerned and compassionate when we see someone who is struggling in life. That struggle takes many forms and often expresses itself in the person being hurting or homeless. We have ideas about why the person is in that situation, and we might even have ideas about what can or should be done to help. But, wait a minute. What if we’re wrong? What if our observations and assumptions are not accurate or don’t tell the whole story? What if there are different answers? There just...


Overcoming Toxic Parenting

The subject is a tough one. It is filled with lots of damage and darkness, and has touched the lives of most Americans – in some way – directly or indirectly. We are going to shine a light on the subject, and give hope and encouragement for the future. Toxic Parenting usually involves some sort of abuse, which is more widespread than we have realized. Can you think of someone who has experienced toxic parenting? Maybe yourself, or someone in your circle of family and friends. Rick Johnson...


When transition and organization come together…

How would you complete that sentence? It’s hard to be happy and free in the midst of disorder. Is your home, living space, desk, or office area neat and organized? Do you wish your life and stuff was more organized, but just can’t seem to get a handle on it? Now, what about transition? The “moment of truth” in the area of organization comes when we have to move. Do you or an aging loved one need to downsize, or move to a senior residence community? What about all the accumulation? You’ll...


Ready or not, things are likely to happen

Alice in Wonderland and Baby Boomers

Just like the Cheshire Cat told Alice, it doesn’t much matter which road you take if you’re not really sure where you want to go.

Listen in on this conversation with a leading business and life coach on the subject of finding and fulfilling your calling.

As hard as it can be at times, having the right knowledge and tools can make all the difference. This program is a “must-hear” for everyone in the 50-plus generation.

A story of hope: when God gets ahold of a man

Solopreneurship: doing what you love, and getting paid well to do it

What if you could do what you love and what you’re good at, and get paid well to do it? Sound like a dream? It may not be as “out of reach” as you think. Jackie B.

Help and hope for teens and families

The teen years are some of the toughest for a child, and for a family. There are so many dangers and distractions in our culture today that pull our teenagers in directions other than where we are trying to lead them. What happens when a teen and a family face these challenges, and what can they do about it? This show will be encouraging to parents and grandparents who love their teenager, and want to make a difference in the course of their life.


Caring for our aging loved ones in how – and where – they live

As our loved ones get older, we want to make sure we help them age as gracefully as possible. We want to be mindful of doing what we can to help them experience personal fulfillment and quality of life. And we want to offer as much help as needed in determining the best place for them to live. On this show, we talk with the experts. Here are some important things you’ll want to know.


Life changes as we get older: should our insurance be changing too?

We have used insurance coverage to protect us: our lives, our health, our homes, our families, our stuff. From that protection we get something very precious to us: peace of mind. But as our circumstances change, we need to take a good look at that protection. Do we need to add to it? Are there some things that don’t need the same type or amount of insurance as before? Let’s talk about getting the right coverage on the right things for the right price.


Do you have a personal or family issue and don’t know who to talk to? Help and hope could be as close as your place of work!

So, you’re at work and you just can’t keep your mind on your job. Something in your personal or family life is going on, and you don’t know what to do. You know you want to talk about it, or get some help, but you don’t know where to turn. What if there was a person available through your place of work who was there for just that purpose: helping people with their issues? Now, that would be a great place to start!


Need to supplement or replace your income? How about a franchise tailor-made for you?

Baby Boomers are looking for options to supplement or replace their income. By choice or by necessity, we are seeking opportunities that fit who we are, and that will be something we care about and enjoy doing. Many of us will work well past retirement age, and we want to find a good match for our skill set and our values. There are a lot of myths and misunderstandings about buying a franchise. This show helps sort out the facts and the fiction.


When it comes to living your life, your “why” is as important as your “what”

If you are in the process of making some changes in your life, such as your job or career, or if you’re even thinking along those lines, it is important to go through the process in a way that will be most rewarding and satisfying. Even if you’re not planning those kinds of changes any time soon, you may want to take a look at your life with these questions: What matters to me? What do I really care about? How do I want to make a difference in the time I have here on earth? The answers to...


Navigating your way through Second-Half finances: here’s help

When you plan a vacation or a reunion, or a birthday or anniversary event, what do you do? You gather information, talk to some experienced people, and make some important decisions. All of this hopefully well before the event itself. That’s how we make sure things turn out the way we’d like them to. Why is it that so many Boomers aren’t following that kind of approach in regard to retirement and the later years in life? Partly, it’s because we don’t know where to start, or who to talk to...
