Your Future Is Now shares information that inspires people from all walks of life that have a dream or desire to create their OWN destiny. The show's main sponsor is Speakers Pathway Coalition, founded by Jim Grant, a Vietnam Veteran and Don Mcgrath whose father was a Prisoner of War during WWII. This military connection inspired them to create a support program and the event, Pathway For Vets designed to bridge the gap for Veterans, Military Personnel and their Spouses. 

Sponsored by Speakers Pathway Coalition. We provide training for TEDx Talks, Speakers, Authors, Internet Marketers, Networking, How to Craft Your Talk using Story Telling. For more information go to www.speakerspathway.com


Pathway For Vets focuses on the transition from military life to civilian life. Especially assisting the spouses of veterans and military personnel. The spousal unemployment rate is 3 times the national average. Most Veteran Service Organizations (VSO's) focus on offering training for employment, which is a good thing, but the spouses normally suffer a loss of income when PCS orders assign their military family to another military installation.

Would you like to know 'HOW' to create a career instead of just hoping to get another job? In addition, receive training and coaching in how to generate income by creating and turning your dream or your goal in life to a profitable business.

During his military career, Jim was a Certified Instructor teaching a multitude of soldiers over a 12-year span. While serving in the reserves, he owned a manufacturing business for over 20 years serving many Fortune 500 companies.

From a recent interview with Jim. "I am an author and have written several books. The one that is most popular is 'Overcoming The Fear Of Public Speaking.' I also wrote 'The Man In The Alley' a story about a son going through his dad's papers after his death and wanted to find the man that saved his dad's life in Vietnam. When I wrote 'Paw Prints In Heaven' this was therapy for me after I lost a beloved pet and I've lost quite a few. I am the author and creator of 'The Future Is Now'. This course is my greatest contribution as it culminates my entire life experience in business and serving in the military. I share what I've learned in leadership, management, running a business and I include things from my education and military training."Don McGrath, Ph.D. is an award-winning author and speaker, having written 50 Athletes Over 50, Vertical Mind: Psychological Approaches for Optimal Rock Climbing, and The Climb: A Leadership Fable About Navigating Challenging Change.

This is WHY most entrepreneurs QUIT or give up. Some can even become clinically depressed

When women are faced with a challenge, especially one that is chronic, to get the most leverage and traction, identify and work at the root cause. Facing poverty, violence, and mental health challenges, the research points women's financial sovereignty as a breakthrough solution.

When women are financially solvent, they:
·  Go further in their education
·   Have kids later in life
·   Have less kids
·   Choose better domestic partners
·   Take better care of their physical and
mental health

Research further shows:
·  When women are given money and
business opportunities, the community
rises up.

Conclusion: When women are financially solvent, poverty is eradicated, violence is alleviated, and mental health is bolstered

Tamra Blankenship "Remembering Others Sacrifices"

Tamra Blankenship was out guest today and delivered a power-packed show filled with great advice in our daily relationships. Her website is www.TamraBlankenship.com Her Email is tamra@TamraBlankenship.com

Today's theme began by focusing on others that are serving in a capacity that prevents them from being with their loved ones during Christmas. We normally think about our men and women serving in the military, especially those that are serving overseas in dangerous areas.

But that is the tip of the iceberg. Further mention was made to remind us all of those that serve in a support capacity; police officers, fire fighters, doctors, nurses and the list goes on. Even employees of the power company are in high demand during the holidays whenever we experience power outages, especially during winter and freezing temperatures.

Tamra's insight and wisdom gives the average person a clear understanding of how to treat and respond to others. Tamra also shared information about how to cope for those that are experiencing loneliness during the holidays.

Please Subscribe and Share this podcast with others...especially those that are going through difficult times during the Christmas Season.
