We Are Here At Your Service

“We Are Here At Your Service”, means you, me and every other person who choose to be a part of this life-changing dream.

My actual blog domain name is tigersundertheumbrella.comUndertheumbrella is a big vision of mine and I would very much so like you to be a part of it if you have anything that you do that can be beneficial to others. When it rains and we are exposed to the elements, an UMBRELLA is normally used to protect us or to at least keep your upper torso from getting wet. Some umbrellas can only accommodate one person, while there are some that are big enough to accommodate three maybe four people.

My under the umbrella goal is to get as many people as I can, from many different backgrounds working together to accomplish the same goal (helping as many people prosper as possible). I want people under my umbrella who have something of value that can help to better the lives of other people all over the world. If you’re a doctor, lawyer, stay at home mom or dad, coach, business owner, etc., etc., I welcome you to place your offer UNDER THE UMBRELLA. If people from all over the world are seeking assistance in any area of life, I want them to be able to find you and your product UNDER THE UMBRELLA. My goal is to make this the biggest and brightest umbrella ever invented online.

I have a lot to learn to about web construction, maintaining and developing my blog, adding videos, and so many other things that’ll be needed to make the umbrella strong, efficient and sturdy, but with the help and assistance from many of you, WE CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN. I do have a few local people on my list that can help me make this dream a reality.

The umbrella thought came to me because umbrellas are meant to protect. Protection will be provided for any and everybody seeking ways to do anything their little hearts desire. I don’t want a single person to join any of your businesses or whatever you have to offer and do nothing further. I want people to start new ventures and carry through with them. NOBODY LEFT BEHIND.

I will explain TIGERS in a future blog or reveal the vision behind it to you as you place your vision UNDER THE UMBRELLA.

In return, what we’ll all do is promote the umbrella to others so everybody will get free exposure and advertisement from many many different sources. If any of you have read any of my previous blogs, you already know that I have no problem promoting other people’s missions, dreams or goals on my blog. We can all benefit more if we all develop similar attitudes.

Okay, I’ve put it out there. I need your help in order to make this dream a reality. Let me know what you have to offer.

We Are The World

Yes you and me, “We Are The World.” If you have anything of value to offer to others that you think could make a difference in the lives of others. What is value? I’m glad you asked. When I think of value I think of so many things. You can add value to somebody’s life by just simply giving a warning about a bad experience that you had in life that didn’t turn out to be so favorable to you. Value can be giving others advice about vacationing, shopping, health and wellness, religion, sports or advice about that least little thing that you think is insignificant to you or anybody else.

Every time somebody like one of my articles or become a follower, I realize more and more how we can make a major impact on the world if we just share what we have. My Pastor J.A. Grant used to always say, “Start Where You Are, Do What You Can and Use What You Got.” He used to tell us all of the time, “That We Could Very Well Miss A Blessing Right In Front of Us Because We’re Looking To Far Down The Road.”

Start right where you are, right now. Don’t wait til you move or til things get better for you. You don’t have to have a home by the sea or an apartment in a sky rise with the best view in town. The view that you see outside can either be your view of motivation because you don’t like what you see. The view that you see can also be a motivator for you to accomplish and acquire what you see. Or you can do what I do most of the time. Most of the time when I look out my window, I envision how I can make what I see better and more beneficial for others.

Oh don’t get it twisted and think that I don’t want improvement for my life. I do. But I also believe, I can have anything in life that I want, if I help enough other people get what they want. So, I Am The World too.

Use what you got. If you only have a pen and paper, use it. Start putting your thoughts, feelings and experiences on paper. You will never be able to remember everything. If you want to become a photographer and the only camera you have is the one on your cell phone, use it. If you have an idea about something and you just can’t get it off of your mind, start doing as much research as you can on the matter. You would be totally amazed at what you can find to help get your idea up and running.

Do what you can. You can only do so much as an individual person, no matter what your resources are. Whatever it is that you have to offer, do something EVERYDAY to get better at it until you figure it out.

I once heard motivational speaker Les Brown say, “Cemeteries are the most riches places in the world, because so many people die with their ideas, books, visions and goals still inside of them.” Don’t undermine yourself, You Have Something To Offer. You Are The World.

I didn’t want to finish this blog and then wish I would’ve added the words to the song, so here you are. Read them and let them sink deep down into your soul.

We Are the World
There comes a time
When we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
Oh, and it’s time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all
We can’t go on
Pretending day-by-day
That someone, somewhere soon make a change
We’re all a part of God’s great big family
And the truth, you know, love is all we need
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me
Oh, send them your heart
So they know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stones to bread
And so we all must lend a helping hand
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let’s start giving
Oh, there’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me
When you’re down and out, there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe there’s no way we can fall
Well, well, well, well let us realize
Oh, that a change can only come
When we stand together as one, yeah, yeah, yeah
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and mee
We are the world (are the world)
We are the children (are the children)
We are the ones who’ll make a brighter day, so let’s start giving (so let’s start giving)

Oh, let me hear you!
We are the world (we are the world)
We are the children (said we are the children)
We are the ones who’ll make a brighter day so let start giving (so let’s start giving)
There’s a choice we’re making

We are the children (we are the children)
We are the ones who’ll make a brighter day so let’s start giving (so let’s start giving)
There’s a choice we’re making
And we’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me
We are the world (are the world)
We are the children (are the children)
We are the ones who’ll make a brighter day so let’s start giving (so let’s start giving)
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me
We are the world, we are the world (are the world)
We are the children, yes sir (are the children)
We are the ones that make a brighter day so let’s start giving (so let’s start giving)
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me, ooh-hoo!
We are the world (dear God) (are the world)
We are the children (are the children)
We are the ones that make a brighter day so let’s start giving (all right, can you hear what I’m saying?)
There’s a choice we’re making, we’re saving our own lives

“You’ll Be Covered Under the Umbrella”

Under The Umbrella will be a major fundraising platform for any and all individuals,  charitable organizations, groups & churches.

How my vision came to be: The initial vision came to me about 15 years ago. I was a member of a church in Shreveport, LA., when God gave me a vision to find a way to create income for black pastors so many more could become full time pastors for their members. If I could do this it would open many more doors for men and women of the clergy who HAVE to maintain full time jobs as well as fulfill their pastoral responsibilities.

Now years later the vision has increased from establishing financial stability for black pastors to creating and establishing financial freedom for any individual regardless of their life-styles, living conditions, race, color, religion, sex, etc., etc., etc. I wanted a business model that could generate infinite funds to anybody who would like to change their way of living, an easy business model for anyone to learn and operate and be able to show others the same. The key is one person at a time.

How the “Under The Umbrella” vision came to be: This vision came to me about a month ago after talking to a very dedicated AAU Basketball Coach (initials K.C.) here in Bossier City, LA. I asked this coach why he wasn’t partnered with some of the other coaches in the Shreveport/Bossier area. I was amazed at his answer. He said he had tried to partner with other coaches in the past, but to put it in a nut shell nobody wanted to partner because they all wanted to keep their team names, tradition and everything else that made their teams who they are.

When “Under The Umbrella” is set up, running and raising money for people and groups  in the Shreveport and Bossier, LA., areas, these people will have the option to be covered under the umbrella for a small yearly donation while maintaining their individual identities. When covered under the umbrella these people will have access to every different professional organization covered under the umbrella as well. This is just a small list of the professions I’d like to have representing from under the umbrella: Police Officers, Fireman, Teachers, Lawyers, Sports Officials, Coaches, Churches, Tax Experts, Mechanics, Automobile Sales People, Doctors and so on. More will be explained about why the different professions and the overall mission of “Under The Umbrella” at a later date.

The vision for my blog will be to post and write about anything that I think could be helpful to any average every day person. Your support will be more than greatly appreciated. I would like to know from my audience some of the things they’d like to share with the public to make our world a better place.

This is my first piece of advice to all. When we are engaged in conversations with other people we may not agree with a word they’re saying but we could at least respect them for their opinion just as we want them to respect us for our opinion. We don’t have to fall out, argue, fight and kill each other because somebody else didn’t like our OPINION.

LET’S MAKE THIS WORLD A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE IN BY US BEING BETTER PEOPLE TO OTHER PEOPLE!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Each One Reach One! What Do You Have To Offer?

“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.” Barack Obama

Many people experience good and bad things that happen in their lives on a daily basis. If you have anything to offer that can make other people better, please share. I have many many different things that I will share using this awesome platform. I need everybody to keep in mind when me or anybody else share their experiences, it’s based on their own personal experiences, not somebody else. What I mean by this is, what worked for one person may or may not work for you.

One of the first things I’d like to share is dealing with personal dreams and goals. Nobody, I mean absolutely NO BODY has valid excuses for not accomplishing their dreams and goals. JUST SIMPLY GET STARTED. Do your research and you’ll probably find what you want to do doesn’t require any or much start up cost. Let me give you a few  great personal experiences.

1. This blog: I have wanted to write now for years and have had a wordpress.com account for at least 5 years. Instead of me doing my research into the program I’d signed up for, I just immediately thought getting started would cost me an arm and a leg. But 5 or more years later I discovered all I had to do was JUST START WRITING AND POST MY MY WRITINGS. So now you know if you want to start a blog wordpress.com is the answer. I will have my personal wordpress.com link in the next blog.

2. Autoresponder: I was sent an email by an experienced Network Marketer/Affiliate Marketer about joining a particular site so I could keep track of all the people who joined my business or opted in for more information. But because I thought the program was much too difficult, I didn’t sign up. To my amazement these programs aren’t as difficult as I thought. The worse part about the email that this individual was sending me is- he kept saying, “You’ll need this tool in order to be an online success in whatever online business you’re doing. The money is in the list.” I finally figured it out and signed up for an autoresponder years later.

Many of us either fall into these same categories or know of others who do: fear, excuses, procrastination, ignorance (lack of knowledge),  or just the every day negativity that the people or circumstances of this world has to offer. STOP!!! I’ll give you an excellent piece of advice that I got from one of my former pastors.

“Start where you are, use what you got and do what you can!”                                       Bishop James A. Grant

If your dreams and vision has anything to with getting started online, you’ll probably find out in most cases that you won’t have to pay or even register a credit card in order to get started. Many online businesses and site owners know that their success is centered around the success of the people who sign up for their programs. With that in mind many of these businesses and site owners offer a 30-Day Free Trial. Then along with that they give you all the training you need to become a online financial success. YOU JUST HAVE TO APPLY YOURSELF for that 30-day period and follow the instructions given to you and you’ll probably see that it’s very possible to accomplish your dreams and goals. More to follow.

If it’s you or some one you know, get up and get started. If not you! Who?
