I just realized I don’t add Arranger unto my cv ..’. My business coach told me to remove ‘veteran’ from my website’s. It makes me sound old. I’m anything but old he told me.
We both agreed, that I am very, very contemporary ..’ – Was having a meeting a couple days ago.

It was our fourth. He only told me he was Jewish, on the day. The seeded truth unravaled to me as to why his pessimism about #WhitePrivileges working against African’s, stays rooted; in spite of all the facts before him ..’
Higher truths - Aremuorin
I realized my work is cut out. If an MBA Business grad who is a trained business coach & psychologist, does not, know this, what is the hope for humanity. Particularly, people of minority races, non white trained business psychology experts, and people who are still fast asleep

.

Very soon they would allude that gut instincts is not a fact, but just an opinion – like God.

#MentalSlaveryIsAChoice

I actually hate that word. Minority – Nobody is a minority. We are equal and human. Humans are the ones who disrespectfully dehumanize; and rob one another of their dignity in the name of self preservation and greed en wrapped in wickedness ..’ – #In14Ways

I still won’t. All you #fakes, #bates, #plants and #uncletoms, give it up. God’s favour is worth more than #silver or #gold & #lucifer’s lies !!!!!!

There’s power in the name of #Jesus ..’ There was a man called Job. Everything the devil stole God restored two fold cuz he believed. #GodFirst

Because of one #Holy #Sacrifice – ‘Jesus’, there is power and grace available for those who believe and only God knows those who love him; trustingly ..’ Surely, ..’ I do – #Amen

Why I won’t go to church today ..’

I was invited to church today by a friend and this was my earnest reply:

I tell you. I am not overtly keen on religious Church activities anymore for a zillion and one reasons. My love for Christ has nothing to do with a building.

I can reach God quicker than speed dial and wifi. Church does not define my faith in God or my relationship with him. I admire your Church going desires; it just does not thrill me as such anymore.

God is a spirit of worship and truth. What difference does it make where I worship him but in spirit and in truth?

Coming to church religiously does not make my faith true or spirit filled.

I think I will pass today. I tread organised religion carefully these days.

Learned many a lesson. I must pray and wait till I’m led again which church to plant myself in again.

My father is a rev and my family are all in the church business round the world, running church’s from Africa to America.

Reedeemed to Celestial…

I’ve seen it all and none of them impressed me at all ..’ – #In14Ways

Found an un identified authors write up on falling in love ..’

Read this post and my thoughts below it- #In14Ways

Things you should know before falling in love with me:

1. I have a hard time opening myself up to people, and in the past, it’s ruined relationships for me.

2. I’m not a morning person at all, it’s best if you keep your distance until I’m completely awake.

3. I am honest, but I know at times I can be too honest and it’s never my intention to hurt your feelings, I just don’t think before I say things.

4. There are days when it’s just too much to get out of bed, and on days like those just know it’s not you, it’s never because of you.

5. I have so much love to give but I don’t know how.

6. I can get angry very quick and it can last for the whole day. And even if you weren’t the cause for my anger, stay away. You can’t reason with me when I’m like that.

7. I never want you to think I need you. I don’t, I can do all of this alone and be perfectly fine.

8. I’m not your property I am my own person and if you ever think you can cage me up, you’ve never been more wrong in your life.

9. I’m a free Spirit and Love doing things that excite my soul. So be ready to go out of your comfort zone.

10. I sing in the car and you should too.

11. I’m a movie fanatic, I like anything that can make me feel something.

12. I can be the warmest person you’ve ever met, or I can be the coldest. It all depends on the type of person you are.

13. I feel things deeper than most and that’s why my emotions are always under lock and key.

14. If I ever lose the fire in my eyes, don’t leave, just take me to bed and turn off all the lights, I’m just in my head, and that’s a place you never want to see.

15. I have a dark soul that sometimes makes me view the glass at half empty instead of half full.

16. I’ll never give you a reason to cheat on me. And if you do, you should just pack your shit and go. No explanation just leave.

17. I have many sides to me, each one being more complex than the last. But just know, no ones stayed long enough to see them all.

18. If you do leave because I’m something you can’t handle. I won’t be mad or hurt. Like i said before, I don’t need you.

19. If you ever see me cry, don’t say anything just pick me up and hold me.

20. I am not something you can fix and mold into something else. If you come into my life thinking that, you’re going to leave worse off than me.

21. I don’t like beating around the bush. It takes too much time.

22. I get hot very easily and when I am hot I’m a ticking time bomb that you don’t want to see blow.

23. Don’t put your hand on my throat if you don’t want what comes after.

24. When I’m on my period I can be very unpredictable and I’m sorry for whatever happens.

25. I know I come off as very independent and if that intimidates you then you should walk away now.

26. I’m looking for someone who will challenge me, someone who has the same goals as me and will do whatever to reach them. Someone who I can take on the world with.

27. I lose interest very easily and if you can’t keep me on my toes then we won’t last long at all.

28. I never ask for help, but I won’t say no if you give it. It’s my pride and it’s a bitch.

29. Your happiness is key to me. And mine should be the same to you.

30. There is never a reason to lie to me, I’m very understanding. I take trust very seriously and if you lie to me all my trust for you is gone.

I know I am complicated and have a lot of layers to me, but believe me when I say, whoever gets past my walls and gets me, they’re the luckiest person because I have a lot to give. – k.L.k

– Author Unknown

I love 16. But 19. was a paradox for me on the author”.

An eye opener ..’

“One passive aggressive human being I will not want to date.

I admire the sense of self worth but hurt bad with revolving walls arround it as a fortress.

Unfortunately, in a relationship, it’s about two becoming one, not two becoming 2 or 3 or more, save their offsprings.

Who ever I fall in love with would be an organic match regardless of the baggages there or not – cuz they wont matter if we were in love.

That’s life in general. You don’t have to be intimate with anyone to experience this connection. You can get sex anywhere if you so desire to live your flesh free willingly. Personally, the latter is not my style. I believe in love and in the one – not players like dogs looking for pots to piss in. Love is friendship.

Jesus is the love of my life. I tell him everything wrong about me and he loves me still.

Relationships based on love surpasses all human undersanding. They can’t figure it out.

Those are my thoughts. What are yours?”.

Hackney Council announces innovative partnership approach to further develop social enterprise sector in the Borough

Hackney Social Enterprise

Hackney Social Enterprise ..’ – ‘Photo Credit – Gary Manhine’

“Hackney has a proud history of social enterprise – HCT was founded here back in 1982 – but with this new partnership, it could be a real opportunity to take social enterprise in the borough to the next level.” – Frank Villeneuve-Smith, Communications Director, HCT Group
On Wednesday 21st February, representatives from Hackney’s social enterprise sector were invited to meet Philip Glanville, the Mayor in Hackney Town Hall to present the results of a consultation to create a Social Enterprise Manifesto for Hackney.
IMG_20170913_222758_357.jpg
Consultation on the Hackney Social Enterprise Manifesto, led by Hackney Co-operative Developments CIC on behalf of Hackney’s Social Enterprise Partnership (Hackney Co-operative Developments CIC, Bootstrap, Company, Hackney CVS, Hackney Roots, Hackney Council, Shoreditch Trust, UBS, UnLtd and Urban MBA), has gathered ideas from over 250 social enterprises for how Hackney Council, with support from the sector can work together to further recognise the existing role social enterprise plays in the borough and to support the development of social entrepreneurship and social ownership going forward.
1f776f1c-8181-46ae-9e4e-cdcdca663993.jpg
The Consultation Results highlight three strategic aims for the sector locally: to promote awareness & understanding of social enterprise, build capacity and reach within the social enterprise sector and to provide a platform of resources and support for social enterprises. Suggestions for Hackney Council include innovative approaches to areas such as planning, procurement and communications.
MercyfulGrace Diaries - No Scars - #NAZ
“This is an exciting day for the social enterprise movement in Hackney with Hackney Council really demonstrating their understanding of how much the social enterprise sector can contribute to the social, environmental and economic wellbeing of the Borough. We are grateful to all the social enterprises who contributed to the consultation and are pleased to be working with the Hackney Social Enterprise Partnership to push this agenda forward.” Edward Quigley, CEO, Hackney Co-operative Developments CIC
See video from Social Enterprise in the City event 2017 celebrating Hackney winning Borough status:

 The Mayor, Philip Glanville, who has supported the consultation since it was launched at the Social Enterprise in the City conference at Hackney House in November 2017, has welcomed the suggestions and the efforts of the sector in undertaking this piece of work. Today, senior officers from the Council have announced their plan to work collaboratively as part of Hackney’s Social Enterprise Partnership to run a series of workshops to use the ideas generated from the consultation to create a realistic and actionable action plan that the Council and social enterprise sector can co-publish later this year.

“I’m very pleased to see the results of this manifesto consultation with the social enterprise sector and the significant steps taken to get here today. In light of recent budget announcements, it is more important than ever that every penny spent by the council achieves maximum social value for residents. By supporting the growth of this sector we hope to use more of their passion, innovation, and expertise, to see more jobs for local people and the development of a more caring society. Through our role in Hackney’s Social Enterprise Partnership, Hackney Council commits to work with the sector to ensure the best of social enterprise thinking is embedded throughout council policy and the everyday life of the borough.” Philip Glanville, Mayor of Hackney
20170927_015849.jpg
This level of in-depth partnership work puts Hackney at the forefront of innovative local social enterprise development and follows best practice guidance from Social Enterprise UK who awarded London Borough of Hackney recognition as an official Social Enterprise Borough in 2017.
“Hackney has always been a tremendously creative place, ahead of the curve in so many ways and it’s no surprise to see such a strong and vibrant social enterprise movement in the Borough. This dynamic social enterprise landscape is making a real difference to people’s lives in many ways including helping people get into jobs and providing health and wellbeing services. The Council’s support for the sector has resulted in the Borough being accredited as an official Social Enterprise Place.
Love - MercyfulGrace Blog
 
Embracing social enterprises is crucial if we’re to build genuinely inclusive communities – they are creating jobs where they are needed most and leading the way when it comes to pay, diversity and innovation. They represent the future of business and it’s great to see the Council working hand in hand with locally-based social enterprises in what I am sure will be strong and enduring partnership.” James Butler, Public Affairs Manager, Social Enterprise UK
 
“I am both excited and thrilled to see the progress that has been made to date” says Nick Wright, Head of Community Affairs EMEA at UBS, who supports social enterprise through its Community Affairs programme, “and how by working collaboratively across the sector significant strides are being taken to further develop social enterprises in the Borough of Hackney, enabling them to address societal challenges more broadly.”

Abe Cruz In 14 Ways with Forever Faith

Abe Cruz7 - MercyfulGrace Blog

Abe Cruz: ‘Forever Faith’ – In 14 Ways – http://MercyfulGrace.Blog

Abraham J. Cruz what a pleasure to meet with you in #In14Ways at last. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to get closer to know more about you. We thought this interview would never happen. You are such a busy successful inspiring entrepreneur. If you are not dripped in chocolate (Jay Leno) for your adoring fans, you are dripped in words of inspiration all over your (Forever Faith) brands ..’ So lets get started already in In14Ways ..’

1. How are you today?

I’m Blessed and Great every day, because there is no other option when you see light, and breath air. Amen!!

2. What was life like on millionaire matchmaker when we first saw you

Life at that point was unreal, and unbelievable, because about a year before that I was in prison, and I was told that. I wasn’t going to be able to accomplish anything, or be productive in life. I was in prison being told when to eat and when to sleep.

3. Has Patti changed your life for good with the one in the aftermath

Patti did a great job on working with me, but unfortunately it didn’t work out with the girl I met on the show. She was beautiful, and I hope she is doing well.

Abe Cruz8 - MercyfulGrace Blog.jpg

4. How has prison affected your focus

It was the biggest blessing of my life, because nothing I have today (physically, spiritually, financially, or mentally) would have come about without hitting rock bottom and going to prison. I was forced to lay on my back, so all I could see was up.

5. Advise for young entrepreneurs

To truly follow their heart and soul, and ask God for direction. Truly believe in God first, and believe in yourself second, and with that combination you can’t lose.

6. Your advise for anyone living a life of crime

Yikes..!! Hurry up and figure out your exit strategy, because I don’t think anybody decides they want to go into a life of crime. Speaking for myself I grew up poor, and wanted a better life for me and my family. And ultimately I know I made the wrong decision, but it was the quickest financial solution to all my financial problems. I would never advise to do it. Remember this… Fast Cash Fast Crash..!!

7. How has faith captured your imagination.

I fully believe in myself. I feel that I will be one of the most powerful men in the world some day, for many different reasons.

8. How have you managed to resolve diversity in America being Latino

I understand at time we are dealing with some racial tension, but I personally do not allow racism, or race, to influence or impact my daily life. I don’t have an ounce of hate in my body, except for idiots. And idiots come in all shapes, sizes, and races. Life overall is about loving, accepting, and encouraging each other.

(MercyfulGrace: Laugh – Laugh – Laugh – Love it !!! Genius. Thank you ..’)

9. Do you believe in after life

Wooh… That’s a good question. The majority of people out there would want me to give a definitive answer, because that’s what is expected in society. But me speaking truthfully, never even gave it a thought. My focus is becoming a better person every day, and doing everything I can to help this world in every way I can. Yes. I believe.

10. Where is home for you

I travel so much. Not sure where home really is…

11. Your ideal get away.

Heading to the beach. Quiet beach. Massage and relaxation all day long… and having sushi. I’m more on the simple side.

12. Who inspires you most

Faith is number one. There’s been a couple of people that triggered some inspiration as well while I was in prison. P.Diddy (Sean John), Jay Cutler (4 time Mr. Olympia), and Jim Rohn (Philosopher).

13. Your greatest legacy will be

That I cared about people. That I lifted up people when they were down.

14. Say a prayer for humanity.

Dear Father God, I come to you for the good and the bad, and today’s specific prayer is to bring humanity together. We are going through some tough, confusing times. Us humans don’t have the answers. So I turn to you, and ask You for direction. I ask you Father God to guide us, because we will only see improvement if we put all our faith in You Father God. I pray this to you Father God in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen

End of Interview

Thank you so much for the interview. You are truly a star and a consummate professional. I’ve picked up a few notes here personally. Goes to show. The best things in life are free and what will be will be. Patience is a real glorious virtue. Furthermore, like to add and end on this note: may God bless you real good. Amen !!!
