    EP 174 Jide Gamu iFOURcore App Founder

    Do You Believe In Love At First Sight?

    Before we start, I need your help. 
    Please let others know about the newsletter. If you or someone you know needs coaching, please click here, and it will take you to the coaching page. My goal is to get the podcast in the top 100 Apple podcasts, and I can only do this with your help. Please leave a rating and review, share the link to the podcast with your social media followers, and support the podcast's guest. My guest Jide Gamu, is the founder of the app IFOURcore. We will talk about not just the origin of the app but how it could save your marriage.
    My question to you is, who taught you how to date? Think about this. As a parent, what is our role to help our kids?
    Jide began his career while working for the Colorado Alliance for Reform in Education (C.A.R.E.); on behalf of school choice, Jide helped develop the Alliance for Equal Opportunity in Education to promote school choice for students. Shortly after that, he started his first business, C.O.R.E. (Colorado youth – Overcoming adversity – Recognizing their potential – Empowering one another). Through his work with C.O.R.E.

    Jide developed a community program called BarberShop Talk, an introspective gathering of men from 8 to 80 who met in a barbershop to discuss community issues. BarberShop Talk grew to include a television broadcast hosted by Jide and later produced a spin-off for women called “A Woman’s Worth.”
    In 2005, Jide started “Youth Tree,” a community redevelopment organization comprised of young individuals whose potential for excellence exceeded their age. He also co-hosted a radio show on KLDC 800 called “Anointed Word on the Street.” Topics included the impact of growing up in a fatherless home.
    In 2006, after more than 700 hours of training, Jide helped open the first Educo Gym in America. His practice has taken him as far as Sardinia, Italy, Paradise Island, Bahamas, and Belize. In early 2008 Jide was elected as the 2nd Vice-Chair of the Aurora Human Relations Commission and was also awarded the “2007 Activist Award” by the City of Aurora.
    April 29th of 2008, Jide joined the U.S. Army. He conquered a 12-month deployment with the 2nd Brigade 4th Infantry Division to Mosul & Kirkuk, Iraq, in the fall of 2008. In the summer of 2010, he committed to the 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne), achieving one of his many “adventurous goals” by becoming an Airborne Trooper. Shortly after that, Jide was selected to work in Washington DC, where he currently resides. With his daughter Leilani, Jide is endeavoring to bring about positive change in his new community.

Real Conversations About Blending Families

Tommy Maloney's musings give the act of blending a family a real voice. He keeps it honest and at the same time casual and fun. It is so helpful just to hear someone else's, well, dirty laundry. Too often parents have to put on a good face, and there is no place to just be raw about how hard being a step parent is, how hard it is to thoughtfully and successfully build a blended family. If you--or someone in your life--is on this journey, Tommy's podcast will allow you to be a fly on the wall to his own experience--and on the way he brings along various guests to share their journeys, too.
