Tell It To Venus is for those who still have hope in love and relationships; even in the current and often discouraging environment in which we live. An environment that appears to offer a slim chance of having a healthy and happy relationship, or any possibility of marriage. We are still encouraged. We understand how easy it is to become tired and discouraged; Tell It To Venus is here to listen.
WOMEN RUN MEN, BUT WE CAN'T RUN A COUNTRY?!!!
We receive ALL the blame, but never the glory. No matter what the past relationship history was we are at fault. The wife didn't do all she could to keep her husband. While the mistress or the side chick did EVERYTHING to get him. But when the relationship has run it's course we quickly remember how the mistress connived her way to wife status. Payback is a bitch. Rarely do we put the blame squarely on the man or offer him any culpability in the situation. We talk about gravitating to strong men. But when did women become so dominate that we run the show?
We have the power to make him leave or stay. Our sexual prowess is so skilled that he has no choice in the situation. He is defenseless against us and our feminine wiles. Our vagina is how we strong armed him into submission. No such thing. We're all powerful. Many of us love our President, but secretly wonder how much influence the First Lady really has. (That's why we figure First Lady Michelle Obama should be our President in 2020.) Countless times I heard jokes about Hillary Clinton and if she was running for her 2nd term as President. No one would disagree that with all her experience she was and is more than capable of running this country. American men (particularly white men) did her like the Deacons at the church. They feel emasculated at home so they take whatever little authority they have at church and use it demonstrate that they still run things. Very rarely do you see women in the black church or any church in a position of power. I'd heard white men say they felt overlooked and ignored. But the highest paid person in corporate America is still the white male.
White women had nothing but disparaging remarks and opinions of Hillary. Many told me they hated her. But couldn't tell me why.
"She and Bill Clinton did horrible things to those women."
First of all, Hillary was running for President, not Bill! Why do his indiscretions count against her? This brings me back to my original point. We get all the blame, but never the glory. It is her fault that he had an affair. It's something she did or didn't do that made him cheat. Even as one of the most powerful men in world; it was her emasculating behavior that created the problem. You're giving her way too much credit. But the same ones who blamed her for not being woman enough to keep him from straying are the same ones that criticized her for staying in her marriage. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. They are the same hypocritical women that voted for a man that was looking to cheat only months after marrying his third wife. Trump bragged about his mistreatment of women. "Grab 'em by the pussy." Nothing turns me on more than being manhandled and assaulted by an egotistical, misogynist man. Oh my, I can't wait.
So let me get this straight.....this man has filed bankruptcy 6 times, been sued more times than I can count, hires illegal immigrants, but doesn't want to pay them, doesn't want to honor any of his contracts. Has a history of filing bankruptcy just when he's supposed to pay his contractors. Brags about not paying taxes in over decade. Has been proven to be narcissistic personality; possibly has a narcissistic personality disorder. He is a liar. And you think this man will be good for our country.....make Amerikkka great again.
On the other hand you have a woman who has served others all of her life. Been in public office over 30 years. With thinking like this it's probably Ivana Trump's, Marla Maples', Melania Trump's and don't forget probably Hillary's too....... it's their fault Trump is like he is. After all we run the men. We just don't run the country.
Look at God!! A former coaching client referred Patrick Collins to me for my Get Ready for Greatness Executive Coaching Series. Patrick is the son of world renowned Civil Rights activist and educator Marva Collins who was portrayed by Cicely Tyson in the made-for-tv movie - The Marva Collins Story.
After the first few coaching sessions, Patrick presented me with the honor of editing his new book - Learning Curve; Living in the shadow of Marvin Collins. He and I are now joining forces by combining my work in early childhood music education with his international early childhood education advocacy effort. He has agreed to serve as chairman of our board as we create the Marva Collins Foundation and the Marva Collins Early Childhood Education Scholarship Fund. The Marva Collins Foundation will be operating out of Chicago, IL where I am now opening a second office for CTI Marketing and the Marva Collins Scholarship will become part of our Cora Lee Cuff Fund here in Jacksonville, FL…
MY COACHING PHILOSOPHY
When I think in terms of quality of life I immediately think in terms of success and what a successful life should look like; what I have, what I own, how free I am to play and travel. But over the years I have recognized that there have been times when, even having all these things, I was still unhappy. Why is that? How can that be? We've been trained by society to believe and be defined by a big house, nice car, great spouse, kids going to good schools, great vacations and good looks. All part of the vision we hold onto to find happiness, success and live our lives to the fullest.
We work incessantly trying to reach these goals. I have had the great fort…
With the state of the political climate; there is complete
unrest for anyone of color, or religion other than Christianity. Today is the
first day of Black History Month. Trump decided to make remarks acknowledging
the occasion. “Frederick Douglass has done an amazing job.” Does he even
know who Frederick Douglass was or is? I truly doubt it. He threw around a few
other names such as Dr. Martin Luther King. Does he understand that Douglass
championed abolition and women’s suffrage? Neither cause is something I think
Trump would support now; let alone the 1800’s. Douglass went from being a slave
to one of the greatest orators of his time. He has more in common with
President Obama then Trump who lacks character. It is worth noting that
Douglass married a white woman after his first wife died.He married Helen Pitts in 1884 until his
death in 1895. I don’t see Trump being a proponent of interracial marriage. He
must have misspoken as he often does. Why would today be any different?
