The Evolution of School Systems


The Evolution of School Systems 
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
In times past, schools were considered a safe place for children and teachers – one of exploration and growth. Now with all the conflict, stress and shootings, teachers deserve hazardous duty pay and children might be wise to exchange their backpacks for bulletproof vests.
What has happened to turn our once safe and supportive schools into war zones? How ineffective has education become as a result? What evolutionary solution can be found to counteract the rapidly deteriorating condition of school environments, safety and quality of education?

With us this hour to delve into the dilemma is Dr. Cletus R. Bulach a retired Ohio school superintendent and associate professor emeritus at the University of West Georgia.  He is the author of numerous articles in educational journals and is co-author of the two books: “School Climate and Culture Vis-à-vis Student Learning: Keys to Collaborative Problem Solving and Responsibility.” The second book is “Enhancing A High Performing School Culture and Climate: New Insights for Improving Schools.” The second book focuses on human relations problems that interfere with creating a positive school culture and climate: poor interpersonal communications and inability to cope with conflict.

Following Your Joy to Live Your Purpose


Following Your Joy to Live Your Purpose
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
Lately, we are hearing a lot about life purpose and true calling. Exactly what that is seems to be up for debate.
Some schools of thought indicate that one must find the job that matches up with their “calling” in order to live their purpose. Others allude to living our purpose through whatever we happen to be doing at the time. Some believe they cannot live their purpose as they must make money to survive – that following one’s calling is diametrically opposed to earning a decent income.
What exactly is our true calling? How can we uncover what our calling is? Is purpose necessarily attached at the hip to occupation? How can we uncover what we came to do? Or is it all a grand illusion, fabricated to give our seemingly meaningless existence value?
With us this hour to explore life purpose is Jennifer Noel Taylor, author of “Spiritual and Broke: How to Stop Struggling with Money and Live Your Purpose.” Jennifer is an energy healing practitioner, self-help motivator, and the CEO of Quantum-Touch, Inc. She has dedicated her life work to helping people discover the healing power of their love. Jennifer graduated from Cal Poly with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science and a Minor in Philosophy. After graduation, she started her first job as a Software Engineer at a big company in San Diego, but the job didn’t align with her true passion in life. She innately knew that she had a purpose and felt keenly aware she was not following her true calling.

Give and Take: Evolutionary Marketing


Give and Take: Evolutionary Marketing
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
Marketing – a necessary evil in the business world. As consumers, we have been marketed, schemed and quite frankly scammed, to death. As a result we have become suspicious and cynical.
Is there an honest, evolutionary approach to getting a well-meaning company’s valuable product in front of the public, sans the hype and overblown claims? As we evolve into a more cohesive whole, most of us are looking for win-win solutions to today’s problems. Is there such a resolution in the business world?
The market is flooded with dubious claims from companies that focus on making sales and profit to the exclusion of consumers’ needs and wellbeing. How can honest companies draw the attention of those who want and need what they can provide? Is there a beneficial solution that does no harm?

With us this hour to lend her expertise on the topic is Sheryl Green, author of “Do Good to Do Better: The Small Business Guide to Growing your Business by Helping Nonprofits.” Sheryl discovered the power of storytelling and has brought her love of the craft to fiction, non-fiction, and content writing for businesses. After years of begging for money for nonprofits, she discovered Cause Marketing and now helps small to medium sized businesses stand for something and improve their business at the same time. She holds a Master’s Degree in Psychology and has worked in Customer Service, Public Relations, Education, and the Non-Profit world.
