Topic: Author, Speaker, Entrepreneur Journey to INSPIRE Change for Homeless
In the United States of America homelessness is an issue. No one wakes up in the morning and decides to move from home to sleeping on the streets, sidewalks, vehicles, bus stations or a self-made tent. People struggling with chronic housing insecurity "ALL" have one thing in common. They are human beings created in the IMAGE of God.
Children, youth, women, elderly, college students, veterans struggling with homeless need holistic help. Safe, sanitary, and affordable housing is one key to helping people struggling with housing. Some homeless people don't even know their "worthy" of housing. Essential resources and services can help people get back on track. It must be done with a spirit of grace and dignity. Housing, healthcare, food, education, employment and insurance are basic needs.
Author, speaker, and entrepreneur Jovan Roseboro sat down for an interview with Restore, Recover and Rebuild.
We talked about his journey from Fayetteville, North Carolina to Washington, DC. Becoming the "CHANGE" we want to see was a theme during President Barak Obama campaign. Americans must not wait on others but begin to seek to discover, "Why am I here?". We help people discover purpose so they can release power to create change. Learn what Jovan did to inspire people to pay attention to issues of homelessness and at-risk youth. You can be the change you want to see in your family, community, workplace, school or faith community or abroad. Thank you for watching!

Topic: What's Your Plan?
Do you have a PLAN for your life? Is your life fulfilling? Are you pursuing the right job, right education, right relationships? If not, no worries. It's NEVER too late to make a U-turn. You were born with greatness in your DNA. You were born to THRIVE, PROSPER and SUCCEED. Underneath all the junk, drama and trauma is greatness, purpose, gifts, talents, skills, potential.
If where you are today isn't where you want to be in 5, 10, 15 years from now all you need is a plan. The power of CHOICE is on your side. Many people get "stuck" in the past and never cross over to the other side. That doesn't have to be your story. In this video I share tools and tips.
Ultimately, the choice is up to you. NO one can hold you back. NO one can stop your purpose.
NO one can deter you from the life you were created to live- but you. Your thinking has to change.
If you want to improve or make adjustments in your life it's a sign that you are alive. You are growing. You are developing. You can have a blessed life. A liberated life. A healthy life. A holistically prosperous life. A happy life. A whole life. It happens inside of you. When society stands at a "crossroad" shift happens. Anytime things are shaking it's for a reason and a season.
Don't get stuck in the loss. Don't get paralyzed by fear. Don't get stuck in what was. This too shall pass. Choose to reposition yourself for restoration, rejuvenation, refreshing, relaunching.
