PRESIDENT BIDEN IS ON A MISSION TO BUILD BACK BETTER!

Sunday, June 20th, 2021

I have not been hearing anything in our local news about the severe flooding that is currently taking place in several regions of Guyana. The situation demands extensive relief efforts. It is nothing short of a Natural Disaster. There is substantial infrastructural damage that will cost billions of dollars to be repaired. It is time for us to pay some attention to the developments in Guyana and reach out to help our brothers and sisters in their time of need. It is amazing how suddenly life can change from hope to despair.

INDECISION IS NOT AN OPTION!

Tuesday, June 15th, 2021

As we continue to navigate through these difficult times, my simple advice is to stay in a positive state of mind and do the best we can as we move ahead with our lives. In this fast pace world, indecision is not an option. The clock is ticking and many of us claim that time is shortened. We will like to get so much more done in the limited time we have. An answer that was given to me some years ago was that time seems to be shortened because we are packing so many activities into a single day. Many of us are busier than we have ever been, and for most of us, that is the reality these days.

WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE???

Monday, June 7th, 2021

It is my sincere hope that the above headline will be a wake-up call to many, as it is very important to live a Purpose-Filled Life. When someone is able to answer that question, it sets the course for their life’s journey. The earlier it is answered, the better. This world is filled with DRIFTERS and when you are a drifter, you are a victim of negative forces. There is an old saying that the devil finds work for idle hands. A mind is a powerful tool that should not be wasted.

WHERE ARE THE REPRESENTATIVE ASSOCIATIONS FOR SMALL BUSINESS PERSONS???

Sunday, May 30th, 2021

With all that is going on, there is a need for established associations such as the St. Lucia Industrial & Small Business Association (SLISBA), the Southern Business Association, St. Lucia Manufacturers’ Association, and the Realtors Association St. Lucia Inc. to aggressively represent the interest of operators in the sector. In spite of the pandemic, there are many things that can be done to ensure that small business persons can survive now, and beyond COVID 19.

WHICH POLITICAL PARTY WILL REGULARISE THE REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY IN SAINT LUCIA?

Sunday, May 23rd, 2021

Other professions within the Construction Sector are regulated – Valuation Surveyors, Land Surveyors, Engineers, and Architects, all these professions are governed by legislation. What is so different about Real Estate Agents, that there is no urgency to regulate their industry? The Realtors who promote their businesses through websites and on social media platforms make a serious contribution to promoting tourism and investment on behalf of St. Lucia. This further proves that Real Estate professionals should be recognised.

TELL YOUR STORY- SPEAK YOUR TRUTH!

Sunday, May 16th, 2021

It is time for our political leaders in the region to open up opportunities to everyone with a story to tell, to share it with their immediate community and the rest of the world. Self Education/Knowledge Industry is the new multibillion-dollar industry that is currently emerging. I am bold enough to say that thousands of home-based businesses are possible to come on stream, beginning today, if we will find a way of bringing our great, and not so great minds together, to develop and implement ideas that will help to alleviate the unemployment scourge which is causing a decline in social standards.  We can never provide the massive impact that is necessary to hit the core of the unemployment situation.

COVID 19 CONTINUES TO RAVAGE NATIONS!

Sunday, May 9th, 2021

Let us for a moment look at the types of adjustments we have had to make in our lives as we sought to cope with the COVID 19 pandemic. The protocols demand that we adhere to 1. Washing hands. 2. Wearing Masks. 3. Maintaining social distancing. Those who practise the three foregoing protocols have in the main continue to save themselves and others. Not everyone is comfortable with wearing mask but the evidence has shown that it works. Washing of hands has brought about greater attention to personal hygiene. In the end, we will all benefit. Regarding social distancing, the nostrils have always been an area for dispersing germs including sneezing and blowing of the nostrils. Now, we are learning to keep our distance. However, many persons still insist on hugging, squeezing, and kissing rather than elbowing and fist jamming. We have made great progress; however, we still have a long way to go to be fully compliant with the protocols.

THE FUTURE HAS NEVER BEEN MORE UNPREDICTABLE!

Saturday, May 1st, 2021

The challenge that is laid before the leaders of this world is for them to humble themselves and do what is right. The leaders, and by extension the people they govern must with one accord make a commitment to live righteous lives in peace and love. There are too many hidden agendas. When there is righteousness, nothing needs to be hidden from the people. Good governance is established in the laws of every nation, and good governance will always produce a blessed and happy nation.

JOY COMETH IN THE MORNING

Friday, April 23rd, 2021

A new day has dawned for America. The two branches of government, although the Democrats have very slim majorities have demonstrated their ability to navigate the process and produce results, as in the case of the 1.9 trillion dollar American Rescue Act. The Filibuster is currently posing some difficulty in the US Senate as President Biden seeks reconciliation wherever possible, although he is not prepared to lose sight of his agenda, especially the promises he made to the electorate.  The next Bill to be presented to the Senate will be the Infrastructure Bill. However, there is an urgency for the legislative branch to act now on Race Relations, Gun Control, and Policing which may see the latter emerging at the top of the agenda in a few days.

WE MUST BE EACH OTHER’S KEEPER!

Saturday, April 17th, 2021

There are hundreds if not thousands of stories of Disasters to be told about events around the region as those who were affected, rose from the ruins, and in many instances, started all over again. We need to hear those stories. Enough is not being done to educate our people about disaster survivors. Media houses throughout the region need to get involved in the production of survival stories that normally follow disasters. Storytelling is a vital part of informing and educating our citizens in all aspects of life.
