    A Father's Day Message: How To Get Unstuck, Be More Creative and Be the Best Dad You Can Be - Coach John Paragon, Episode #68

    A Father's Day Message: How To Get Unstuck, Be More Creative and Be the Best Dad You Can Be - Coach John Paragon, Episode #68

    After only having £2.79 in his bank account, John felt like he failed as a father, as a partner, as a businessman and as a man.

    Only when he cut out the noise, took himself back to the basics and the fundamentals of business, did he begin to gain traction and rebuild.

    Three years later he had sold his first 7 figure company which he started with less than £5,000 and then he went on to help almost 1,000 clients trade over $200million.

    Now he helps budding entrepreneurs who are also 30-something dads to redefine success, think creatively and a build a future for themselves and their families.
    As we celebrate Father's Day, we're excited to share John's story and expertise with you all!

    A Lincoln Lesson Of Intercultural Creativity™ - Diamond Mentor Moment #14 - Genein Letford, M.Ed

    A Lincoln Lesson Of Intercultural Creativity™ - Diamond Mentor Moment #14 - Genein Letford, M.Ed

    Though he believed slavery was wrong, Abraham Lincoln did not think black people were on the same intellectual level as whites…. Until this happened…
    In this Diamond Mentor Moment, I speak about intercultural creativity™ from a historical perspective and I identify the driving factor of intercultural development for our 16th President that moved him ‘separatist’ thinking to petitioning the right to vote for black men.
    I also speak on how we can go the opposite direction and polarize ourselves away from those different from us.
    Our ability to connect with others from various backgrounds directly affects our creativity, the creative potential of others, as well as our progress as an organization and a nation.
