My blogs are not written to offend, ridicule or demean readers, but instead exemplify personal growth and to empower those that remain teachable as I do. The information I share is not limited or biased to a particular age, sexual orientation, culture, ethnicity, religion, spirituality, group or subgroup, but for all with open minds and receptive ears willing to listen. I’m perfectly imperfect and stand on the belief that in order to teach I must remain teachable. I wholeheartedly welcome and embrace all opinions and ideas.
My blogs pertain to my personal and professional views concerning how I live, what I teach and continue to learn. Moreover, they provide details about working in the community and expound on relationships, recovery coaching, addiction, parenting, domestic violence and driving under the influence of alcohol and or drugs. I want my blogs to guide readers to define their “IT,” embrace “IT” and Raise The Bar & Do-It Responsibly®
As I reinforce to myself, family and students anger is a natural emotion and it’s okay to be angry. It’s, however, what you do with your anger that makes the difference and determines either a positive or negative outcome. Readers, let’s grasp the idea of having a win-win conversation instead of lose-lose, or win-lose ones. Let’s use social media in a positive way and show ourselves and others that we have the power to choose and foster accountability as we discuss ideas, opinions and provide feedback. Responsibility is the crux of producing positive results and is one of the cornerstones of Building Safer Communities, LLC (BSC).
The proof in building a solid foundation rests in me, Je’mere Korea Heyward. I am the image you see to the left, and my professional ambition in life is to empower others to Raise The Bar & Do-It Responsibly.® I am on a journey to upgrade the world. Although, that may read too ambitious, I opt to reach beyond so there is no limit in what I and we can do together. Let’s dare to be curious and give feedback that will improve us, families and communities.
