  • Ricky Sluder, Ex-Criminal Investigator, speaks from behind the badge straight from the heart, urging community involvement, on Rise Up Radio

    14 AUG 2018 · Ricky Sluder was recently interviewed on Rise Up Radio by Tom Chesser and OffBeat Business Media CEO Susan Hamilton about his story as a Dallas County Criminal Investigator during his 20-year history working investigations. Sluder shares his story from ‘behind the badge’ experiences to highlight the need for closer community relationships between the front lines and the public they serve. Says Sluder, “This is the most important factor, that we understand with our hearts and minds, the stresses these men and women experience every day to provide protection when they often feel unprotected by the policies in place or the communities they serve. A certain amount of bravado is necessary to deal with the routine depravity and senseless violence they must process internally every day, and don’t feel able to share those things with their closest circles - wives, children, family members, friends from church or the community. Most people cannot survive that type of pressure without a vent, and officers are people.” Discover how you can support the men and women who defend us on August 30-31 at Fort Worth ‘Developing a Bulletproof Mind And A Bulletproof Heart’ event.

  • Tiffany Thomson, Founder, Fight The Good Fight Foundation Reveals How She Builds Safe Houses For The Victims Of Human Trafficking

    11 JUN 2018 · Tiffany Thomson, Founder, Fight The Good Fight Foundation, discussed how the Build It Forward Movement can raise money to build safe houses worldwide. Thomson said, “We can no longer be silent, we need to raise our voice and be heard.” According to Thomson, there are less than 700 beds in the United States & only 35 beds in Texas and depending on their age, that without these safe houses these survivors are put into foster care, juvenile detention centers, or jail. Most become involved in illegal activities because there is no safe place to go and that is all they know. The Build It Forward Mission is a fundraising platform to get 100,000 people to donate just $10.00 a month. That would raise over 12 million dollars a year. Human trafficking is the fastest growing illegal business on the plant, every 28 seconds, a human being is sold into slavery. 40.3 million people are trapped in modern-day slavery, and it has become a local, national, global problem. Just giving $10.00 per month for those rescued needing a safe place to live and rehabilitate is a small price to pay. To learn more go to Rise Up Radio

    5 JUN 2018 · We talked about how the road to retirement used to be comfortable. Pensions-401K – Social Security – Investments - Savings. That’s the way we were taught. Well, things sure have changed; Companies aren’t offering pensions, as well as 401K plans, Social Security had changed, People aren't able to save enough, especially with the cost of living and Investments in the Stock Market or Annuities have been all over the place.

You can build a Tax-Free retirement, with an Index Universal Life policy that allows you to protect your money because it is an insurance contract. What this facilitates is · Tax-free at distribution to you. · You can put in an unlimited amount of money into the agreement. · Can grow your money without loss potential, unlike the Stock Market. · No phase out due to higher incomes, unlike 401k, IRA · No required minimum distributions (As with taxable distributions). “This kind of life insurance is the best and most predictable wealth creator.” To learn more call 888-901-9144 or go to Rise Up Radio
