Being good can imply a lot of things. Being good to yourself implies only one thing and that is you are in control of your life. Just ask Sarita Pittman, Board Certified Master Coach, Holistic Healthcare Practitioner, and soon to be a Doctor of Philosophy in Natural Medicine and Nutritional Sciences.

Navigating sex and intimacy talks can often be uncomfortable for parents (honestly, it is even for non-parents). And then throw in gender sexuality and it can become even more of a discomfort .

Well, if you want answers, ask Dr. Tina Sellers, who is a preeminent voice on the impact of sexual shame on sexual health.

Recently publishing her new book, Shameless Sex — Everything You Need to Raise Shame-free, Confident Kids, and Heal Your Shame Too…

It takes a certain level of time and passion for writing one book. And to write many goes beyond the formation of connected words on a page to become the legacy of what is left behind. Or perhaps it is divine intervention. Either way, Eric Jerome Dickey’s life, and legacy will forever be more than words on hundreds of thousands of pages.

A man plagued by his childhood, he hated his mother and found himself only able to connect to women sexually. After all, everything he ever learned about emotional relationships was identified through sex and money (even by his own mother, Thelma). Thelma selfishly and constantly offered sex or money to him for…

Oftentimes, corporate missions stem from a personal experience and journey. When it comes to the CEO of the Samarian Group and H2One Alfred Zaccagnino, his drive is impactful and a necessity, especially in 2020 and beyond.

H2One CEO and co-founder, Alfred Zaccagnino, says the H2One Hand Sanitizer product was born out of necessity: “As we all went through this pandemic, I had an early realization that there was going to be an urgent need for safe and quality hand sanitizes; there just wouldn’t be enough to go around. …
