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. 

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.

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."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.

When it comes to personal finance, most schools never teach how to balance a checkbook, or how to invest or build a financial strategy. Sure, Wealth is having enough money to live on; however wealth means to live a lifestyle to spend more time with your family and to be able to give back and be a blessing to others.

Once you make the decision to change your life to create wealth; you've got to consistently ‘Train Your Brain', it won't happen overnight or in a week or two. You must plan and commit to a strategy dedicated to YOUR desired result. Open your mind to new ideas, look for ways and people that can help YOU along YOUR Pathway to Success.

Tamara Hunter, Cancer Survivor & Crusader



 Tamara Hunter

Cancer Survivor





Jim and Dandy Don opened the show recapping a little of last week's show and their special guest, Mr. Bill Heinrich.  Bill shared with the audience about HOW to recognize and overcome Fear and how to shift to a positive position anchored in your heart with a focus on Love and Serving Others.  Bill's keen insight revealed that you never make decisions, only make choices.  Because when you make a decision, you bring on stress because your entire focus is on the end result. When you make a choice, your focus is coming from your heart and your focus is on serving others as opposed to the end result. In the podcast Bill and Dandy Don offer Friday Freebies to all listeners. The show is entitled "Conquering Fear & Finding Your True Life's Purpose & Energy" on ‘Your Future Is Now' podcasts which aired Friday, April 5, 2019. The shows sponsored by

This week's special guest is Tamara Hunter

Tamara Hunter is a cancer survivor.  She'll never forgot those three words spoken to her from her doctor; "YOU Have Cancer!!" This disease changed her life as she and another lady suffering from cancer formed a ‘buddy team' full of Love & Support. Together this team of two ladies planted a seed of Hope and Support for others who heard those same three words, "YOU Have Cancer." 

This created a life-long passion for Tamara to become a crusader to ensure she did everything she could so NO ONE would ever have to face cancer alone.  Everything she experienced she poured into what became a Labor of Love for her. She focused on the Victims of Cancer as she knew all to well what they were experiencing and going through.  Tamara created a non-profit organization 

Tamara has built a huge following and she would like for everyone to know; if they or someone they might know has cancer, they do NOT have to suffer that disease all alone.  All they have to do is contact and get connected to a ‘buddy' that will provide help, assistance and a listening ear during the low points of their journey.  

In today's show, Tamara announced that Chemo Buddies 4 Life is not limited to just cancer victims...but to ANY VICTIM suffering from a life-threatening disease

She mentioned a lady that was welcomed with open arms that is dire need of a kidney replacement.  Tamara knows that this lady also needs a buddy too!

Tamara's pathway led her to wear many hats. She created a daily Facebook Live show "The Service Hero Show".  In these episodes Tamara interviews people from all walks of life whom have demonstrated that their heart is focused on serving others.  

As busy as she is, Tamara eagerly accepted the invite to become an Executive Training Director with Speakers Pathway Coalition,  In this capacity, Tamara shares her message to others with Love and Encouragement to encourage others to get their message out and maybe even create a cause and mission to meet others needs. 

All of Tamara's commitment to serve others got other people to sit up and take notice.  She was invited and very honored to accept to compete in "The Next Impactor Challenge".  Tamara was thrilled when she broke into the Top 50 contestants.  But little did anyone know that her Love, her Energy and her Compassion would carry her even further.  She not only broke into the Top 10...Tamara is in the Top 5 currently sitting at #4, leaving many other challengers far behind.  

The written words here can never come close to the powerful message Tamara shared to day on the radio program. Especially, to those that have heard those three horrible words, ‘YOU Have Cancer'.  So please download this podcast and send to anyone that you may know that has cancer or any other life-threatening disease.

Conquering Fear & Finding Your True Life's Purpose & Energy

Mr. Bill Heinrich was our guest on today's show.

On today's show Jim and Dandy Don briefly share information on Speakers Pathway Coalition's first event, 'Pathway For Vets' and the recent TEDx Talk that sponsored and Dandy Don spearheaded the event coaching eight speakers at the TEDx Talk event in Cocoa Beach, Florida. It was a huge success for all of the speakers.  

Next they introduced Mr. Bill Heinrich.  Bill is a high-level business coach with many years of experience in coaching clients all over the world. Bill shared some incredible information on how fear is our imagination, our ego that controls us by using old stories and beliefs that were given to us form others. Bill gives great insight as to how you should utilize your inner energy and not your head.  Our heads are filled with our past and problems that is fueled by our egos. We all should follow our heart, because we are focused on our natural gifted energy that is uniquely ours. Bill gave an example of how a lady raised in fear was able to change her life.  She went from being raised in fear, in lack and believing there isn't enough to go around and that isn't true.  In fact we are taught competition, survival, there can only be one winner...that just isn't true!!!  The universe is abundant, the only important thing is love and how you serve others and if you focus on that, that is when your whole life changes. All you need to be is 'just be real, just be authentic'.

Dandy Don shared how he went from broadcasting his message, because Bill told him his energy was 'outside of him' it was like Don was speaking with a bullhorn. Bill told him he needs to speak from his heart and how that really changed Don into becoming a speaker focused on sharing his wisdom from his heart and serving people.  Tremendous difference it made in not only Don's speaking performance, but how it brought value to others and himself. 

Bill shared how when he works with someone to help them find their life's purpose, in the beginning how they are caught up in their life's lessons. They have a perception that there is NOT enough, there is lack, I gotta work hard and how they are caught up in survival and nothing is further from the truth. All you have to do is create the energy and everything else gets attracted to YOU! You MUST serve other with Love. When you do that, you cannot see the energy, but you can see the physical results of it. 

The energy of Love and the energy of Fear are exactly the same. Did you know that your head generates confusion?  Confusion is simply a lack of commitment. Bill shared about the world of metaphysics that we live in and how that is applied in our daily lives. If you create a life of abundant energy, you will live a life above your wildest dreams. One way to do this, close your eyes and think back about a very special moment in your life. You know that moment, maybe the birth of a child, when you got married, it could be anything, maybe a special moment with your mom or dad, or family member that really touched you. Just go to that moment and you'll notice your not in your head, you will notice that everything about that moment is in your heart. That's the difference, when you go to your head, you go to the past, your head is all about the past, it just gathers information for you. The heart is about the present moment and that's the biggest difference. 

In trying to do business on the internet, people are telling others, you gotta do this, or this is how I do this and you need to do this too.  Problem with that, that comes from the fear of survival. It does not come from the heart with focus on serving others.  Everyone is 'pitching their agenda', because they need to make money to pay their bills and help them survive.  When you move to 'HOW CAN I BE OF SERVICE TO SOMEONE?' 

The biggest fear that entrepreneurs suffer is the Fear of Loss. I'm gonna lose this deal, I need this money, etc. It's all about the fear of loss, not having enough.  But when you flip that and go to your client and say I appreciate the opportunity to be of service to you and how can I be of service to you and I am there to help you make the best decisions possible.  That will really impress your client, they will want to do business with you because they will want to connect with you. People are searching for people who demonstrate they are authentic and real and truth. 

Bill shared all of the secrets he has learned in his life and reveals everything in a 'tell-all' way in his new book '7 Levels of Truth' by Bill Heinrich that is one Amazon. His book helps people to find what it is they want to do and discover deep down inside, exactly what it is that they are after or their calling in life.  

Rumi said "Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart."  You have a very special gift and talent that others desire.  Are you gonna let FEAR hold you back?

'Stop making decisions in your life...start making choices'.  Decisions come from Fear and Choices come from Love and Energy.  When you make a decision you're dealing with stress and your focus is on the final outcome.  When you make a choice you are 'choosing' to accept responsibility. And if YOU do not like it...guess what...YOU can make another choice.
