I never tire of this 80’s classic

Simple Minds

This song, “Don’t You Forget About Me” was in The Breakfast Club, an iconic John Hugh’s 80’s movie about coming of age. The theme of the movie and the soundtrack captured the essence of Gen X. I think the letter at the end of the movie from the students to the Principle applies to people today: People see each other in the simplest of terms (read: labels) and do not recognize we are all much more than that.

(Brian Johnson): Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us… In the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain…

(Andrew Clark): …and an athlete…

(Allison Reynolds): …and a basket case…

(Claire Standish): …a princess…

(John Bender): …and a criminal…

(Brian Johnson): Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.

Rewind podcast with Fran Harris

Listening to some of my old shows, I found this interview with WNBA Champion Fran Harris from February 2007. She had written her book “Will the Real You Please Stand Up” and was on a promotional tour. We had a lot of fun discussing the principles she outlines in her book in order for you to discover who you are meant to be. I was blessed to be able to interview her. She’s a great guest. Take a listen. If you like it, please share and/or comment below!


The Profit Margin – Take Action

Boz Was Here

UPDATE Oct 30, 2016: Hard to believe this podcast is part of a radio show I did 10 years ago. I was doing something I loved doing. It was a daily 2-hour radio show. There were 4 segments, and one was The Profit Margin. It was not a financial show, but a show about ways to improve the bottom line of life. My plan now is to start doing The Profit Margin as a podcast. I’d love to have you subscribe so you won’t miss an episode. Listen to this podcast and if you like it and want more, enter your email at the bottom of the page and I will keep you updated when I publish the podcasts.

This podcast is edited from a segment of the Charlie Profit Report, Profit Margin segment from Oct 20, 2006. I discuss success, fear of success, what we think and taking action. If you like it, share it and leave a comment below. Also subscribe to the newsletter to the right. Thanks!

Gay designers Dolce and Gabbana come out against gay marriage and parenting

Gay designers Dolce and Gabbana come out against gay marriage and parenting - Allen B. West - AllenBWest.com

Well this is an interesting twist! Gay men who believe in the sanctity of marriage and do not believe gays should be child rearing, that it should be left up to a more traditional (read: heterosexual) marriage. A very interesting story. Read more here: Gay designers Dolce and Gabbana come out against gay marriage and parenting – Allen B. West – AllenBWest.com.

This should not overshadow the belief that we should treat each other the way we wish to be treated and respect one another. I don’t think gay people are any worse than straight; there are certainly some evil straight people! But we all have our sins to bear. While I do not support gay marriage, I can accept gay civil unions. But what I do wrestle with are the parentless foster kids… would they not be better in a home with people that will care for them?
