Here is a link to the full article CJ, from the Star Tribune, wrote a few weeks ago. I hope you find it interesting even though most of you know the story.  After reading it,  I couldn’t help but think, I wish more had been said  about my work as a Motivational/Inspirational Speaker.  I firmly believe in the Power of Focus and how it change lives. Its a message I love sharing with audiences across America.  Maybe you’ll invite me to speak at your company’s next event.

In addition to being a broadcaster,  I’m also a Motivational, Inspirational speaker. I just finished a new talk  called “Faith is Substance.”  It’s a short impactful message examining, how to have faith which  shows how  it shows up in our lives. Is this too heavy for you on a Saturday morning? :)

The Minnesota Vikings are standing behind Adrian Peterson.

The team announced Monday that its star halfback will fully participate in meetings and practice this week and is expected to play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

The Vikings had deactivated Peterson, 29, for their game against the New England Patriots yesterday, one day after the 2012 NFL MVP answered a warrant in Texas for his arrest on a charge of causing injury to his son by disciplining him with a tree branch.

“Today’s decision was made after significant thought, discussion and consideration,” owners Zygi Wilf and Mrak Wilf said in a joint statement issued by the team.

“As evidenced by our decision to deactivate Adrian from yesterday’s game, this is clearly a very important issue. On Friday, we felt it was in the best interests of the organization to step back, evaluate the situation, and not rush to judgment given the seriousness of this matter. At that time, we made the decision that we felt was best for the Vikings and all parties involved.

“To be clear, we take very seriously any matter that involves the welfare of a child. At this time, however, we believe this is a matter of due process and we should allow the legal system to proceed so we can come to the most effective conclusions and then determine the appropriate course of action. This is a difficult path to navigate, and our focus is on doing the right thing. Currently we believe we are at a juncture where the most appropriate next step is to allow the judicial process to move forward.

“We will continue to monitor the situation closely and support Adrian’s fulfillment of his legal responsibilities throughout this process.”


An Arkansas woman whose mug shot shows her in heavy aqua and maroon eye shadow is accused of shoplifting $144 in makeup.

Police in Fayetteville, Arkansas, arrested 31-year-old Brandy Allen, accusing her of stuffing handfuls of eye shadow into her purse Monday.

Officers said that, after being confronted, Allen went on a profanity-laced tirade and tried to damage makeup as she pulled it out of her purse so the items would appear used.

The Washington County jail said Wednesday that Allen was released on $830 bond on charges of shoplifting and disorderly conduct. Jailers did not have a record of whether Allen had a lawyer. A telephone number could not be found for the woman in Fayetteville.

Hi Everyone! Don’t under-estimate the power of a blessing. Press the play button below.

Folks everywhere are beginning to at least think about being thankful. People in the North might be thankful for escaping the cluthes of a snowstorm while some others could be happy to have landed a great electronic deal on Black Friday. Thankfullness shows up in many forms.

Freddie Bell, Speaker Broadcaster

A friend of our family in Tampa came up with a great idea. Its called The Gratitude List. Its simply a list you compile of things, people and situtions for which you’re grateful. Next, each day from now until the New Year, keep a running list of whatever you’re thankful for. There’s no right or wrong way to make the list. The process is transformative because it helps to create an attitude of gratitude.
Often we don’t have or take time to do this kind of introspection. I’ve been keeping a Gratitude List for a number of years and I’ve found the simple act of writing from my heart is making a profound impact on me and those I’m close to.

Give The Gratitude List a try and let me know if your life begins to change for the better. Happy Thanksgiving!

Welcome to Solid Gold Soul

Freddie Bell


One minute she’s turning down love on a reality show, the next minute, she’s about to jump the broom with Michael Clarke Duncan.

Omarosa and the “Green Mile” actor have been quietly dating since about April of this year. And according to reports, she’s telling people that he’s definitely “the one.”

Last month, Omarosa told Black Voices, “He is the greatest guy I’ve ever been with! I’m madly in love!” She also said that if Duncan proposed, she would “absolutely” say yes.

Duncan and Omarosa

On Sunday night, the couple arrived hand-in-hand at In Touch Weekly’s Icons and Idols party at Bar Marmont in West Hollywood and “could barely keep their paws off one another,” according to Popeater. “Duncan kept her very close to his side all night, gushing to onlookers, ‘That’s my girl.’”

As for Omarosa’s own green mile…of love?

In 2000, she married Aaron Stallworth, but the two divorced in 2005. Several months after the split, she was linked to Dr. Frank Ryan, who died tragically in a car accident this summer.

She tried her hand at love again earlier this year, teaming up with Donald Trump for the TV One dating show ‘The Ultimate Merger.’ But finding love wasn’t in the cards for her, as the final contestant, R&B singer Ray Lavender, was eliminated because he was still technically married. Although Omarosa stated during a reunion show that there would be a second season, it has been called off for now — as long as she and Duncan remain an item.
