Media Professional Finds Great Story to Tell on Wellness, Beauty and Slimming

Like any other writer I sometimes suffer from that dreaded disease: writers block. There’s nothing worse than sitting in front of a blank screen with a deadline looming and nothing to write about. Fortunately for me, I found the cure several months ago when I was introduced to the science of glycology and decided to become an independent distributor for a fabulous company, Mannatech. Now I have too much to say and not enough space or time. Continue reading

Part 2 of Dwayne Fields’ Story

Caribbean Focus Takes a Trek to the North Pole with Dwayne Fields

Part 2 of 3

Even amidst the breath-taking beauty of the arctic, death lurked for the unsuspecting traveller—both man and beast.

Dwayne recalls one of his team’s most poignant moments when he spotted a baby musk ox stuck on a ledge. Dwayne freed himself of his pulk and climbed up the snow bank and helped the animal down. Falling through snow and finally landing on its feet, the musk ox was so grateful that he stationed himself close to Dwayne’s legs and proceeded to follow him around for the next three days.

Never Too Young to be in Business

With the recent news in the UK that over 3,000 straight ‘A’ students will be turned away from their chosen universities, one ‘A’ student is rather celebrating a victory in the world of business.

Jared Marcus Wright, who appeared on his school’s ‘A’ honour roll list, has also attained his first leadership level, that of Regional Director, in a well established natural food supplement company. And Jared is only five years old! He graduated recently in fine style from kindergarten and his ‘A’ achievement, coupled with his business achievements are cause for double celebration.

Screw It, Let’s Do It

I don’t by any means believe that everyone has to agree with everything I say. And I do believe the gentleman who said he disagrees with what I am doing with ‘Real Food For Children’ has all right to so disagree. However, I found his views a bit dubious.

This gentleman, who obviously I cannot name, in response to my networking with him about the proposal to help the children in Ghana with food supplements, said he disagreed because although the problem I am addressing is a very real one, it should be one that Ghanaians are solving themselves.

How To Get Your Kids To Eat Those Gruesome Greens

Have you ever seen kids this excited about eating their vegetables?

I like to play games with kids. My favourite one these days has been to whip out a bottle of what my colleague calls the Rolls Royce of food supplements. The children’s version is a delicious, chewy supplement that has no artificial additives but is packed full of nutrients extracted from 11 different vegetables and fruits. I’ll casually ask the kids, “Do you want one?” Their eyes typically sparkle as they catch sight of what to them looks like a jelly baby.

“Mmm,” they murmur as they wrap their taste buds around the delicate morsels.

After a few moments, I issue my challenge: “Guess what’s in it.” Continue reading
