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 "Laptop Lifestyle Career" instead of just hoping to find 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.

Do you have a message? Are you interested in creating a TED Talk? Do you want to become an author, or motivational speaker or coach, or create an online business? What does it take to be an entrepreneur? Do you want to start a non-profit cause? If you said yes, to any of these questions, Your Future Is Now is the show for you.

Jim Grant retired a Master Sergeant that served 3 years on Active Duty and served a tour of duty in Vietnam (1969-1970). In addition, Jim served an additional 28 years in the National Guard and Army Reserves for a total of 31 years of service in the US Army. 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."

There are currently over 3 Billion people using Social Media. Regardless of your target market, your customers are on Social Media and can be reached.

But with those huge numbers come massive competition. Virtually every company now has a Social Media presence and they are all trying to get heard.

Everybody is posting their content trying to get their message out and are frequently being ignored.

There are very few things in the world of Social Media Marketing that are more depressing than a post with barely any likes and no comments.

It yells out to the world that "Nobody Cares!". It's like throwing a party and nobody shows up!

People feel sorry for you. And for those of us in the business world, it sends a very strong message. Nobody cares about what you have to say! Nobody cares about your business. It is providing "Negative Credibility". It's a business killer.

Instead of people seeing you and your company as an authority in your field, they see you as a novice with no experience, no customers and no following.

On top of that, they completely ignore your posts! You need engagement to succeed. In today's interview, David Riklan shares some key strategies to getting engagement as part of your Social Media Strategy.
