Reina Bluth – Great Job, On Time, Interested in Success

Reina Bluth – Great Job, On Time, Interested in Success

Reina BluthDoing a great job is one thing. Doing a great job and being recognized for it is another. Reina Bluth was recently given these accolades from Kathy Feist.

Reina served as our account manager when we engaged her company to perform outbound call services to a specific block of our customers. As my primary day-to-day contact, I could alway rely on Reina to provide thoughtful and timely responses to my many inquiries. Reina was genuinely interested in the success of our project and worked hard to ensure that our needs were met. While she always ensured that business tasks were completed on time, she also did a great job building the relationship between our two companies. I would look forward to the opportunity to work with Reina again in the future.

A Story Told

A Story Told

Abraham_Lincoln_November_1863Stories must be told.  Throughout time stories have told our story as a nation.  Stories are the personal observations of the people that live through those amazing times in history.  If not for the story tellers the whole meaning of history would have been lost.  It is those personal observations the breath life into history.  Can you imagine a history class where Abe Lincoln speaks to the class and shares his live stories?  That would be the greatest and the student would really learn.  http://www.theglobeandmail.com/globe-investor/personal-finance/home-cents/when-to-consolidate-your-debt/article4280458/ shows the value of a story well told. Abe Lincoln was well known for his story telling ability.  This was a big part of his appeal through history.

Get Real

Get Real

untitled (26)Real stories are the way to go.  The made up stuff is a little weird.  I like to read about the life of the author.  Life is always better than fiction.  If you can share your personal truth in the written word effectively you are special.  most of us are lost when it come to articulating what we really mean.  If you have a story to tell, let it out.  Share it with the world and the world will be better for it.  I think that good stories are the best part of relationships.  Those stories explain how you go to be who you are.  Let us know.  Minnesota’s Home For Life Animal Sanctuary has stories that go untold every day.

Tell it like it is

Tell it like it is

A story from the heart is a rare thing.  Most do not share their real truth.  Those memories are often too painful to talk about.  That is the normal reaction.  The healthy way is to let it out and not keep it inside.  It is like a cup overflowing and each time you tell the story the cup gets a sip removed.  Soon the cup will be a lot more manageable.  If you cant bring yourself to approach the subject it is like poison that slowly kills your capacity to feel.  love is a feeling that will suffer as well.  If you need help go to a counselor and talk about it.  Dove Medical Press can be a good place to look for that help.untitled (17)

Feel-Good Stories From the Front Lines Are Rarely Told

Feel-Good Stories From the Front Lines Are Rarely Told

While there are countless examples of heartwarming stories involving soldiers facing the harsh circumstances of war, there are far too many of these stories that do not get the attention they deserve on a grand scale. This is because film directors often opt for telling a story in which the protagonist is a complex character who is often questioning his role in the military or who must deal with moral issues that have no clear solution and only lead to intense feelings of regret.

One recent example is a film that debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival, but the stories that deserve more widespread attention are those being told by the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. These stories accurately portray what it is like to be a soldier and tell the tales that are so frequently overlooked by the storytellers who have access to such a broad audience. Through significant effort, these feel-good stories are starting to garner the attention they so richly deserve so that more and more Americans can truly understand the entire story as it relates to the experiences of our military personnel who are serving our country in locations all over the world.

Fundraising for College Scholarships Is a Worthwhile Endeavor

Fundraising for College Scholarships Is a Worthwhile Endeavor

There are many bright and hard-working students who will graduate high school with exceptional grades but will not have the opportunity to attend college due to a lack of financial resources. Though many universities offer grants and financial aid, the high cost of tuition is often only partially covered by these programs. This means that many deserving students may be forced to enter the workforce before ever having the opportunity to earn a degree.

Thankfully there are many scholarships that are made available to these students through community fundraising. These students have a unique set of skills that may enable them to study to become doctors, lawyers, engineers or foreign language translators who work for All Language Alliance, Inc. Regardless of the choices they make with regard to their studies, these fundraising efforts are a wonderful example of community members working together to ensure that higher education is available to these outstanding students.

Madera has held many fundraisers for this purpose, and one recent event allowed patrons to sample various types of wine and beer that had been made locally. These events not only help to raise money for important issues, but they also allow community bonds to be strengthened in a significant way.

Stories that make me cry……

Stories that make me cry……

The stories or movies that make me cry are the best written or shown on television and screen.  They pull on the heart string of your fabric of stories that so caring and love the way the world should show caring and kindness to all who live and breath the air together on this plant.imagesK8XO03CX Why is it that we take sides and stand apart from others when we are all made of the same blood and water skin and DNA  we breathe the same air drink the water and have families that we love and care for . People of this plant need to wake up and begin to walk in everyone’s shoes and start to trust and care for one another as we are all family in one way or another.  Firoz Patel was a sad story also.

Remember those Heart Warming Stories?

Remember those Heart Warming Stories?

You sit down with the family or friend in the summer around the campfire or fire pit. Remember those heart warming stories that are told.  The ones about times of that have passed or new experience that have happen in life. These times are getting least and fewer in life because we don’t sit down together at dinner as a family because life gets so busy with running kids to very activity they can cram into one day. Or that both parents are working harder and long just to keep the families fed. I remember sitting with large families during every holiday and telling stories of each other life’s and experience in their city and home to keep us together with what is happening to the family as a whole.  Consolidated Credit can be of help.

Heart Felt Stories That Make You Cry

Heart Felt Stories That Make You Cry

Some stories are just so close to your heart that they bring on the tears.  I remember my mother talking about how poor they were as children.  It is hard to imagine the tough life she endured.  Living in the South in the 1940s was difficult for those living in poverty.  Work was impossible for little pay.  Many including my mother migrated to California in hopes of the promised land of milk and honey.  Just leaving everything behind and going on faith they made their way to California. For much of my youth mom waited tables and we lived on the tips she received.  Thank God for the charity of well meaning customers.  Eric Gonchar has a similar story to tell.
