Author Tracy Emerick explains the other dimension of soul in his book Extreme Entrepreneurs: Steve Jobs and Jesus Christ

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, September 26, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — What is an entrepreneur? What makes them unique? How do they enhance life? These questions are diligently answered by Tracy Emerick in his book “Extreme Entrepreneurs: Steve Jobs and Jesus Christ.”

“Extreme Entrepreneurs: Steve Jobs and Jesus Christ,” published in March this year, is a thorough look into how one can become an effective entrepreneur, making a difference in the world and influencing others.

In the introduction, Tracy Emerick writes, “Each of the extreme entrepreneurs did introduce profound changes to humankind as the expression of their souls. Steve Jobs put easy-to-use technology in the hands of humans, to be used for life enhancement without any need to know or understand the underlying technology. Jesus Christ changed the paradigm of life from one of fear to one of love; giving each of us the opportunity, whether we want it or not, to be loved and to love.”

These are not breaking news, but the author emphasizes Steve Jobs’ and Jesus Christ’s inner driver, which is the soul. Such is what differentiates them from other entrepreneurs, knowing and having explored the other dimension of the soul, the force, allowed them to generate and actualize ideas that have bettered and continue to better life.

Tracy Emerick, before publishing “Extreme Entrepreneurs: Steve Jobs and Jesus Christ,” spent a decade in marketing and business development consulting. To learn more about the crucial impacts of entrepreneurship, the book is available for purchase on Amazon and

L’Imam Hassen Chalghoumi a présenté à Bruxelles son dernier livre qui vise à libérer l’islam des islamistes

La présentation du livre a eu lieu en français, mais le message devrait finalement être connu dans toutes les langues du monde, libérons l'islam de l'islamisme. C'est la difficile mission de l'imam islamique Hassen Chalghoumi.

La présentation du livre a eu lieu en français, mais le message devrait finalement être connu dans toutes les langues du monde, libérons l’islam de l’islamisme. C’est la difficile mission de l’imam islamique Hassen Chalghoumi.

Andy Vermaut:”Très fort intérêt pour le livre de l’Imam de Drancy dans la capitale européenne Bruxelles. Il a pour rêve de débarrasser l’islam de l’islamisme.”

L’imam de Drancy est un fervent partisan de l’harmonie et de la collaboration interconfessionnelles, et ses paroles et ses actions en sont le reflet.”

— Manel Msalmi, Association européenne pour la défense des minorités

BRUXELLES, BELGIQUE, September 26, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Une présentation de grande importance a eu lieu jeudi 22 septembre 2022, au Club européen de la presse dans la capitale européenne de Bruxelles. La Conférence des imams de France et l’Association européenne pour la défense des minorités ont collaboré à l’organisation de cet événement, qui a attiré un grand nombre de participants. Là, ils ont eu l’incroyable opportunité de s’asseoir ensemble et de discuter avec l’Imam Hassen Chalghoumi de son dernier livre, intitulé “Libérons l’islam de l’islamisme”. La conversation a été absolument fascinante. Le livre a été le sujet de discussion de cette réunion. La réunion a été levée après la remise du “Prix pour le dialogue et la paix” par Andy Vermaut, président du Conseil mondial pour la diplomatie publique et le dialogue communautaire. Cette présentation a été très habilement animée par Manel Msalmi, président de l’Association européenne pour la défense des minorités. L’Association européenne pour la défense des minorités est désormais dirigée par Manel Msalmi, qui en assure la présidence.

Laïcité et liberté
Le rôle de la France comme l’un des points de convergence de l’Islam est très important. C’est pourquoi il est un fervent défenseur de la laïcité et de la liberté de religion, et il replace les faits et le contexte dans une juste perspective, tant pour la minorité que pour la majorité. Hassen Chalghoumi : “Les preuves à la fois contre les très rares islamistes qui sont hostiles à la République française et contre les extrémistes qui sont parfois aussi aux commandes des décisions en France. Ces extrémistes sont toujours à la recherche de boucs émissaires en France également, les Juifs étant en tête de leur liste de cibles, mais aussi les Arabes qui ne partagent pas leurs valeurs venant juste après. Les Juifs sont actuellement en tête de cette compétition pour la haine des islamistes. C’est pourquoi je suis convaincu que la religion de l’Islam devrait accorder un rôle plus important aux femmes. Non seulement elles sont les communicatrices les plus efficaces de l’information et de la tolérance au sein de l’Islam, mais elles sont aussi le remède le plus efficace aux pratiques excessivement violentes de l’Islamisme. Je ne prends pas cela à la légère puisque je fais appel à l’histoire, à la culture et aux connaissances que mes parents m’ont transmises. Cependant, je souhaite également promouvoir la récupération de la langue arabe et des réseaux sociaux, qui ne doivent pas continuer à être le domaine exclusif des personnes radicalisées. Vous pouvez lire plus en détail dans mon livre les raisons pour lesquelles je maintiens ce point de vue. Je veux donc contribuer à diffuser la récupération de la langue arabe et des réseaux sociaux, je ne vais pas prendre cette action à la légère.”

Opposition à l’antisémitisme
“Hassen Chalghoumi revendique le patriotisme de ses camarades soldats et leur amour pour leur patrie”, a déclaré Manel Msalmi. Il est du devoir des musulmans, selon lui, de libérer l’islam des chaînes de l’islamisme, qui a la mainmise sur la religion. Personne d’autre ne peut exercer cette activité à leur place. Parce qu’il est un fervent opposant à l’antisémitisme, son livre irritera également les individus qui ont menacé sa vie et celle de sa famille et l’ont forcé à vivre sous la protection de la police. Après cela, Andy Vermaut a poursuivi en ajoutant : “Hassen Chalghoumi est le président de la Conférence des Imams de France en plus d’être l’imam de la mosquée de Drancy, et je le trouve être une personne très sympathique et charmante. Sa réputation de critique de l’antisémitisme et de l’islamisme est assez importante et il a été la cible de plusieurs fatwas, dont une émise par l’État islamique (Daesh). Parce que l’Imam accorde une grande importance à la fois à la paix et au dialogue ouvert avec ses disciples, nous avons choisi d’offrir la récompense d’aujourd’hui en reconnaissance de ces deux valeurs fondamentales. “

Discussion très importante
Andy Vermaut explique : “Hassen Chalghoumi élève l’islam au-dessus de l’islamisme et au-dessus de tout extrémisme et parce qu’il est un véritable partisan de ce que la religion représente vraiment. Mais qui sommes-nous pour porter un jugement sur les croyances religieuses des autres ? Je pense qu’il est du devoir des musulmans du monde entier de rejeter les individus qui, au sein de leur religion, prônent la violence et le sectarisme et d’émettre une fatwa dénonçant ces comportements afin d’y mettre un terme une fois pour toutes. En ce sens, l’imam a déclenché un problème social important qui alimentera de nombreux débats internes ; la ligne de conduite idéale dans toute religion est de se tenir à l’écart de la violence perpétrée au nom d’une foi. Parce que ce serait un manque de respect envers toutes les religions, quelle que soit la foi utilisée comme explication, personne ne peut jamais utiliser une religion comme justification pour commettre des actes de violence, quelles que soient les circonstances. Cet homme ait un cœur aussi bon et le courage d’avoir une discussion aussi approfondie en France, en Europe et maintenant dans le monde entier. Vous devriez lire son livre. La conclusion selon laquelle nous devons nous débarrasser de l’extrémisme islamique, qui est irrespectueux de l’Islam, afin de préserver une version authentique de l’Islam, est très puissante. Cet homme ait la compassion et le courage de s’engager dans cette discussion très importante. Dans ce contexte, c’est toujours un plaisir supplémentaire de collaborer avec Manel Msalmi, la présidente de l’Association européenne pour les minorités, car elle aussi travaille chaque jour sans relâche pour défendre les idéaux qui sont défendus dans ce livre. Il n’est donc pas surprenant qu’on lui ait demandé de présenter le livre à l’occasion de cet événement aujourd’hui. Je soutiens de tout cœur les efforts et le message de Hassen Chalghoumi en faveur de l’éducation de tous les habitants du monde (islamique)”.

Profond respect
Andy Vermaut : “Hassen Chalghoumi, pour autant qu’il présente vraiment une bonne histoire, car le titre “Libérons l’islam de l’islamisme” est quelque chose qu’il veut vraiment voir se réaliser. Cet imam n’a pas froid aux yeux. C’est un débat que tout le monde n’ose pas aborder. Hassen Chalghoumi est un homme de paix qui dit s’inspirer de l’esprit de Gandhi ainsi que des grandes sommités de l’Islam antique comme Averroès. Libérons l’Islam de l’Islamisme s’efforce de rectifier le tir et lutte contre la minorité d’islamistes qui se comportent en ennemis de la République française, ainsi que contre les radicaux qui cherchent depuis longtemps des boucs émissaires en France, Juifs et Arabes confondus. Libérons l’Islam de l’Islamisme s’efforce de rétablir le bilan et combat la minorité d’islamistes qui se comportent comme des ennemis de la République française.” Manel Msalmi affirme que l’imam Hassen Chalghoumi croit sans aucun doute que la laïcité protège les religions contre l’extrémisme. Manel Msalmi : “Entre-temps, Hassen Chalghoumi a acquis un profond respect pour les croyances et les pratiques religieuses des autres. L’imam de Drancy est un fervent partisan de l’harmonie et de la collaboration interconfessionnelles, ce que reflètent ses paroles et ses actes. Tout au long de son ouvrage, Hassen Chalghouni propose ses réflexions et ses idées sur un large éventail de sujets.”

ProActive Realty Group, LLC Demonstrates True Profitability of Affordable Housing Investment in Communities Nationwide

ProActive Realty Group LLC is an active management team that oversees the ProActive Realty Income Fund

ProActive Realty Group is a multifamily real estate investment management team, prioritizing both consistent income and capital appreciation.

The ProActive Realty Income Fund has demonstrated the true profitability of investing in the affordable housing movement

COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, September 25, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The ProActive Realty Income Fund has demonstrated the true profitability of investing in the affordable housing movement. Dr. Canaan Van Williams, CEO of The ProActive Realty Group, utilizes a deft combination of what Sam Zell called the “grave dancer” approach to real estate investment, along with an Oprah Winfrey styled devotion to “finding a way to serve.” Through active involvement in the communities in which they invest and a hands-on approach to property management, Dr. Williams and the team of housing experts at ProActive Realty Group have generated significant returns for investors, as well as created affordable and secure housing opportunities for low-income families and single parents. From August 2019 to present, The ProActive Realty Income Fund has delivered impressive returns of nearly $3 million to investors and despite the difficult economic conditions brought on by the pandemic, they have never missed a preferred payment.

A ProActive Realty Group Success Story

The work done by Dr. Van Williams and ProActive Realty Group in Orangeburg, South Carolina has provided a shining example for those who believe in the effectiveness of impact investing in distressed properties and the affordable housing movement. In November 2018, the ProActive team purchased a manufactured home park for $1.2 million that was weeks away from being condemned. Through personal involvement and determination, they transformed it into a safe and welcoming manufactured home community with 186 developed homesites, which sold in August 2022 for $5.2 million to UMH Properties, Inc., a public equity REIT that owns and operates 132 manufactured home communities with approximately 25,000 developed homesites. The purchase of a rehabilitated property in an Opportunity Zone by a public equity firm is a rare occurrence.

Dr. Van Williams discussed what enabled ProActive Realty Group to achieve such success for investors and residents alike:

“The challenge we address is threefold: (i) restore the dignity and humanity in home ownership, (ii) create resiliency in low-income communities, and (iii) constrain gentrification forces which significantly ruin the lives of lower-income families. The edge we bring to every doorstep and community is the time, sweat and capital we dedicate for each homeowner and attention to detail. Truly impactful investing requires a willingness to serve.

I think it’s important that people understand the full scope of the work done and what an impressive feat it was to take a property on the brink of being condemned to being acquired by a publicly traded company. In the case of the manufactured home park at Orangeburg, before our purchase of the property, there were 68 non-paying residents, 45 residents behind on payments, over 70 code violations, and a majority of the units were dilapidated with significant garbage buildup. Our team at ProActive Realty Group spearheaded huge cleanup efforts, repairs to storm windows, replacement of doors, extensive sheet-rocking, new floor tiling, installation of tub/shower kits, new front and back stairs, replacement of flooring and wood beams, and much more. Imagine the work of flipping a house but carried out on the scale of an entire community.

Two of my sources of inspiration are Sam Zell and Oprah Gail Winfrey, and I think the success we had in South Carolina is a perfect example of how those two intersect. To carry out a successful project that improves the community and delivers a large ROI to investors like we did takes the audacity of a “grave dancer” approach to real estate investing and a willingness to roll up your sleeves and serve the community hands-on, not just throw money at it.”

When asked about how ProActive Realty Group and The ProActive Realty Income Fund measures its social impact, Dr. Williams explained:

“Specifically, our approach utilizes Buffett’s Impact Scoring Model applied by our Fund Administrator, JTC Group, which specializes in impact funds. For example, our impact score was 82 out of 100 on our Orangeburg, S.C. manufactured home park where, in a low-income community, our efforts directly led to 98% home ownership for single mothers and other families who never thought they could own their own home. If you really think about it, that’s remarkable.”

What the Future Holds for ProActive Realty Group, The ProActive Realty Income Fund, and Dr. Van Williams

ProActive Realty Group sees the impact/ESG space growing exponentially as younger generations are more conscious of where they invest their money and do not want their investment dollars contributing negatively to climate change, gentrification and other societal issues. Driven largely by the social consciousness of this generation, more money is starting to flow to clean energy, affordable housing and clean water solutions, creating a new wave of investing and technology with positive social impact.

“This Fund was designed for the impact-minded investor who wants to ‘Invest with Meaning’ and to make a real and positive impact in distressed communities with affordable housing shortages,” said Dr. Van Williams. “Our investors are first. Period. And based on current trends, we expect significant growth over the next several years. We have a solid track record of successful projects and returns for our investors. In 2020, we paid a 12% return, which beat the S&P, and while other companies were halting dividends, we had no interruptions for our investors. On average, we achieve returns of 27% net over three years. We just completed the sale of our Orangeburg property for $5.2 million to UMH Properties, which generated almost $3 million for our investors and an average return of 25%. This is especially noteworthy because historically it is very rare for a public equity firm to make that kind of purchase in the real estate sector. But for ProActive Realty Group that was just the most recent example for our winning model. We have had similar success stories across the United States, including properties in Las Vegas, in the Midwest, and throughout the Southeast.”

SOCAP22

Dr. Van Williams will have the honor of representing ProActive Realty Group at SOCAP22, which will take place at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in downtown San Francisco from October 17 to October 20, 2022. SOCAP Global is the thought leadership platform for the accelerating movement towards a more just and sustainable economy. They convene a global ecosystem and marketplace – social entrepreneurs, investors, foundation and nonprofit leaders, government and policy leaders, creators, corporations, academics, and beyond – through live and digital experiences that educate, spur conversation, and inspire investment in positive impact.

“I’m very excited to be a part of SOCAP22. This is the biggest convention for leaders and stakeholders in impact investing. It is a great opportunity to learn from experts in the field, to exchange ideas and share knowledge, and to further important causes such as social entrepreneurship, equity and inclusion, sustainable development, and stakeholder capitalism,” says Dr. Williams.

The Affordable Housing Multi-Millionaire

Currently in the works, Dr. Van Williams’s book on investing will be published soon. The Affordable Housing Multi-Millionaire: Invest with Meaning, Create Housing Security, and a Ton of Cash-Flow will cover a wide range of topics, including social impact in low-income areas and Opportunity Zones, how to raise capital for investing, how to create an Affordable Housing Vision, what “investing with meaning” involves, how to create the greatest social impact while simultaneously generating impressive cash flow, and much more.

Dr. Williams’s work with ProActive Realty Group and The ProActive Realty Income Fund allows him to offer firsthand accounts of the successes and obstacles of investing in the affordable housing movement. As opposed to some who theorize in the abstract or invest passively, Dr. Williams and ProActive Realty Group are active managers with a hands-on approach. This allows him to draw on personal experience as he develops and shares their investment strategies.

A Call to Action

The teams at ProActive Realty Group and The ProActive Realty Income Fund are passionate about delivering returns to their investors and creating positive social change for the communities in which they invest. Dr. Williams, who has over 20 years of active experience in real estate investment and management, believes that impact investing, ESG, and the affordable housing movement are just getting started.

“I don’t think it’s an overstatement to say that this is the future of investing. This generation of investors has just started to realize the true profitability of affordable housing investing, and the younger generation is hungry for meaningful change in the financial sector. They understand that making money and making a difference are not mutually exclusive. I truly believe that this is just the beginning for us and like-minded investors everywhere. The more that people get involved the better the returns – and the greater the positive community impact – will be.

For Immediate Release Sam and Friends- The Story of Jim Henson’s First Television Show

Sam and Friends - The Story of Jim Henson's First Television Show

The cover of Sam and Friends – The Story of Jim Henson’s First Television Show

UNITED STATES, September 25, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — On May 9, 1955, a new local television program premiered on the local Washington, D.C. station WRC-TV. It was a unique program entirely populated by puppets and they captivated viewers with their bizarre antics, like lip-synching to records. Entitled Sam and Friends, this show was the brainchild of a college student named Jim Henson. His project would be a important stepping stone to a vast and influential empire that would include, among its achievements, Sesame Street and The Muppet Show and continues to flourish long after Henson’s passing.

Craig Shermin, who is President of the Jim Henson Legacy and author of The Muppets Character Encyclopedia, thoroughly documents Henson’s breakthrough program in Sam and Friends- The Story of Jim Henson’s First Television Show. This new book, published by BearManor Media, explores how Henson, along with Jane Nebel (his future wife) conceived the show and how the puppets were created and manipulated so they would seem real to the TV audience. One of these puppets, an amiable creature named Kermit, would go on to appear on Sesame Street and The Muppet Show and become a world famous icon. Sam and Friends also contains an episode guide, including five complete scripts. The book also features more than 150 photos from the Jim Henson Company archives and a forward by longtime Henson associate Frank Oz, the original puppeteer of such popular characters like Cookie Monster and Miss Piggy.
