When a business operates with understanding that the importance of its community is by giving back, their success is inevitable. Making a difference in the lives of others by lifting them up is a quality seldom seen in businesses. However, I’m a witness that there is a business in Las Vegas, Nevada that goes to great lengths in giving back to its communities.
When I was a kid, I made my mom cut the seams out of the insides of my socks. If that ball of inverted fabric so much as grazed the stubby tip of my big toe, I would make certain not only that my day didn’t move forward until the issue was resolved, but also that nobody’s day would move forward. It didn’t matter to me who was put out by my fit. It needed to be dealt with. Anything else that was even slightly uncomfortable needed to be similarly done away with, too. If my socks didn’t set just right in my shoes, they had to be readjusted. I would sooner endure walking pneumonia than to put up with the persistent itchiness of my shirt tag on my spine during the school day. And don’t let me get started on the complexities of acquiring pants that hugged me in a suitable way. I was verging on a teenager before I permitted jeans to replace sweatpants in my wardrobe. (I’ve once again evicted jeans, excepting special occasions.)
Finding yourself is something that I have been striving to do latley. I want the oppurtiny to discover myself in a city, live like never before, do things I've never done.
Beginning My Journey Of Self Discovery
I would like to say it’s hard to believe I’m a part of a group of people with a distinction that’s nothing to be proud of. It’s a label that will always be a part of who I am, and one that I’ve learned to accept and maybe even embrace. That label? I’m a part of the eight percent in this country that is a convicted felon. The truth is, from a young child I was headed in this direction. Before sharing how I became a part of that eight percent, let me share my back story.
So, here I am trying to write something for money. Why? Because I need it. I have one child, myself, an apartment, and really not much else. Except a lot of bills and a ton of health problems that need to be taken care of.
From high school to past college graduation, I worked retail. A total of 7 years (with almost a year break my freshman year of college). And there is something I need you all to know about retail and food workers:
This is a question for more of an advance group of practitioners in my opinion. Recently I received this question and my first thought was to dismiss this question. Is it unethical to give positive commands that the subject enjoyed themselves in a session seems moot, does it not? As I thought about it the person was likely responding to something deeper. The person writing to me argued that these commands rob the subject of the agency to decide for themselves whether or not they liked being hypnotized. How might you answer this question?
When you’ve toiled at the same factory for 5 years, and suddenly get fired by the new and biased line manager over a small mistake, you are hit with a wave of disillusion and plunged into a fresh state of uncertainty. Being unemployed in a foreign country where you’re meant to be earning to support family back home, whilst carrying the risk of deportation, puts one in a vulnerable and highly stressful situation. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s then the emotional turmoil you face from a relationship you’re desperately holding onto, with a future that yet again, bodes uncertain. When you initially meet Darna (all names have been changed to protect the privacy of individuals), you would not have expected her to be carrying such burdens.
After a full renovation on my home, I needed ways to boost my income. I wanted to avoid selling the home so soon after updating.
