Commitment to Civility in Phoenix

Commitment to Civility

Phoenix, Arizona , June 18, 2019 – A true commitment to civility has become priority for a group of professionals and entrepreneurs taking Phoenix by storm.

Dr. Vernet Joseph, World Civility Ambassador, National Statesmen, recognizes the gravity of responsibility relating to public life and befitting a citizen. Not taken lightly a necessity to be solution influenced by shifting increased division coarsening our culture too often fueled by vitriol of politics and public discourse.

Vernet, entrepreneur productivity speaker, best-selling author and the Founder/CEO of Live To Produce Enterprises, LLC energized the city as a world wind this year. The 3rd Annual Productive Business Summit positioned in Phoenix, at the Salvation Army Joan and Ray Kroc Center was a game changer. Attendees were startled with awe when City of Phoenix Mayor, Kate Gallego, issued a proclamation deeming June 8th as Phoenix Day of Civility, presented by the Mayor’s Director of Community Relations.
This day filled event encompassed speakers ranging from the My Financial Home CEO from California – Dr. Cozette M. White – who stressed the five biggest mistakes business owners make, and Arizona Financial Planner Ashley Folkes, who provided practical tips about being mentally, physically and financial fit, to World’s Best Connectors’ founder Denise Meridith, Crown Life Enterprises Founder Marquez Hughley, whose talk focused on increased levels of productivity, Mindset Changer CEO Jamal Cummins, whose message was “Don’t quit!” and PITCH Investors Live representatives who introduced a new innovative way for business owners and entrepreneurs to gain exposure and obtain funding.
The Productive Business Summit & Golden Rule Global awards is a collaboration with Dr. Clyde Rivers, the Honorary UN Ambassador at Large of the Republic of Burundi. Rivers has earned innumerable awards, including, in 2017, the United States Presidential Life Achievement Award for over 4,000 hours of serving the nation and humanity. He is also the Founder and President of iChange Nations (ICN), which improves the quality of life throughout the world by emphasizing honor, trust, dignity, and civil discourse. Cities and states are encouraged to join the cause. For example, communities throughout Indiana celebrated their fourth Annual World Civility Day in April, 2019.

Another highlight of the evening was an attendee making an impromptu decision from the audience to enlist in a real live pitch contest for $10,000.00. Three minutes later Darryl Gooden of www.keepteachersteaching.org pitched an initiative to support teachers around the world inside and outside the classroom. The vote was unequivocally unanimous to award Gooden the grand prize.

When Joseph was asked what were the aha’s or moments that took his breath away? Joseph proclaimed, “Experiencing the power of relationships and collaboration with partners flying in from around the world.” Topped off by “Mayor Gallego’s proclaiming June 8th Phoenix Day of Civility.”

Civility lives on.

Man Up! God’s Way

Man Up! God’s Way

Screen Shot 2019-02-07 at 3.46.35 PM.png

I am passionate about the work I do, the call God has on my life, AND I love watching it catch fire. I love seeing men and women from all areas of the world…Step away from that very place, and into the Spirit, into God’s arms, direction, insight, and power. 

He is so good.

I watch God transform the lives of men and women, failed marriages and addictions, footholds and illnesses, confusion, anxiety, and despair…He tears down our walls, restores our foundation, and brings us back to life with the power of the Trinity, the truth of the written Word and the grace of Jesus Christ our savior.

Oh, I never imagined to be serving this way. I sometimes hardly recognize my own voice but I don’t care… I just ‘go and do’. I am just like the rest of us. We are all just doing the best we can.

And, that is what I love inspiring others to do…  To do the best you can at the life you’re living!

Something I have noticed is that men, and couples, keep coming to me for help. The first couple who came to me was lost in a web of infidelity and heartache. They were surely sent by God because KNOWING my call was to work with women, (Ha, how little we really know.) I could have easily turned them away. But, there is one question I always ask a future client…

What made you reach out to me for help?

The man answered...”I’ve tried everything but God.” 

It was like God himself spoke to me and of course, I would work with them, even though, that was never my plan. So now I am getting to the point of this blog. 

There are so many tools, groups, support and direction for women. My book that comes out this spring has a whole section dedicated to Godly men because I love these men and they are wanting a relationship with God just like the rest of us. Oh, how important it is to have strong Godly men in our homes, communities, and workplaces. 

We have a real movement in the world today, to build up strong women and I love that…But not at the cost of our awesome men. This truly is catching fire in my heart, mind, and soul and I know I am to step in. 

God is nudging me and so it goes. Last fall I began hunting for resources for the men I work with. I wanted to find a place for men to thrive, be inspired, and grow in their faith. I do a fine job with this myself, but I wanted a great place for these men to be built up by men. I am very careful to lead folks in the way God has directed, which means sticking close to the written Word. Finding a place for men that matched this was not easy. There are some awesome podcasts and individuals to follow but I wanted more. 

I wanted a community that leads men, God’s way. That is when I found Pastor Jody Burkeen. His story is passionate and real. God has taken hold of his life and he is… (right off his website) 

Wanting men to stand up to the challenge God has laid out before them in His Holy Word. 

I share this with you all for two reasons. First, I wanted you to know who Jody is, to look for him on my talk show this coming Wednesday, February 13, and to be watching for future events. We’re planning a joint speaking event which has given me a burning fire to ignite the souls of men and women…..To Live, Love, Learn, and Lead God’s way. There will be more on that to follow.

For now, my second hope is that you’ll go check out his facebook page and share it with others. His work is pretty awesome https://www.facebook.com/manupgodsway/  and website http://www.manupgodsway.org/  AND TUNE IN VOICE AMERICA WEDNESDAY 7 PST, 9C, 10 EST on my Niccie Kliegl, Fulfill Your Legacy Facebook page for the live stream of my talk show ‘Living Life Within the Sweet Spot”.

Faith Infused Living…Reaches Goals Higher!
