Seeing the Positive
It's pretty easy to concentrate on the negative and there's plenty of negative to go around. Take the stock market, for example. Goodbye 401K? It's easy to complain, too, about lax snow removal or dawdling left lane drivers or a latte that's too hot or too cold, but never just right. Can we hear ourselves? How about we stop for a moment to accentuate the positive?
Brandon Chrostowski tries to make a postive impact in the lives of the formerly incarcerated by running a restaurant and institute dedicate to employing them and teaching culinary and customer service skills. He was watching TV news one day and got fed up with all the negatives, so he did something about it. This week he had his first "See The Good Tuesday." We will talk to him abou how his plan to accentuate the positive went. Plus, we will meet the comedian who is doing serious work by performing random acts of kindess. We will talk to an entrepreneur helping to break down employment barriers and meet a young mother helped by the repo man.
