Farm Talk with Paul Ward – Chatting Real Estate With Uber Drivers

In this week’s show, Paul tells us about his recent business conference in Las Vegas. Over the course of 5 days, he utilized Uber for transportation 10 times, and during those rides, he had an opportunity to chat with each of the drivers. The info he gathered, although not statistical, was really quite interesting!

Paul learned that, out of the 10 drivers, only one was a native to Las Vegas – all the other drivers had come from different locations, and 2 had even come from different countries. They were attracted to Las Vegas for the low cost of living and were able to earn approximately $30,000 being an Uber driver.

When one of the Uber drivers asked Paul if he had any important tips about real estate, he was very happy to help! Tune in and hear what valuable info Paul shared with her – it’s great info we all need to know!

I love these types of properties, and it is my desire to help families, individuals and investors from all walks of life achieve their dream of owning a ranch or country estate.

Ask Dr. Bunny. Bullying? The Windham family, guests.

The Windham family – Elizabeth, Isabel, Nicholas and William, and their parents, Travis and Cassie – join Dr. Bunny in Las Vegas, Nevada, to discuss bullying.

Bullying has come to the forefront in the news lately and has caused devastating outcomes for some young people.  At the very least, bullying has caused hurt feelings and emotional upset, and at the very worst, it has lead to suicide.

Tune in as the Windham family shares personal stories of bullying, how they feel about it, and the importance of parental influence.  A great interview with a wonderful family!

Bullying Statistics (from the National Bullying Prevention Center):

  • More than one out of every five (20.8%) students report being bullied (National Center for Educational Statistics, 2016).
  • The federal government began collecting data on school bullying in 2005, when the prevalence of bullying was around 28 percent (U.S. Department of Education, 2015).
  • Rates of bullying vary across studies (from 9% to 98%). A meta-analysis of 80 studies analyzing bullying involvement rates (for both bullying others and being bullied) for 12-18 year old students reported a mean prevalence rate of 35% for traditional bullying involvement and 15% for cyberbullying involvement (Modecki, Minchin, Harbaugh, Guerra, & Runions, 2014).

  • Of those students who reported being bullied, 13% were made fun of, called names, or insulted; 12% were the subject of rumors; 5% were pushed, shoved, tripped, or spit on; and 5% were excluded from activities on purpose (National Center for Educational Statistics, 2016).
  • A slightly higher portion of female than of male students report being bullied at school (23% vs. 19%). In contrast, a higher percentage of male than of female students report being physically bullied (6% vs. 4%) and threatened with harm (5% vs. 3%; (National Center for Educational Statistics, 2016).
  • Bullied students reported that bullying occurred in the following places: the hallway or stairwell at school (42%), inside the classroom (34%), in the cafeteria (22%), outside on school grounds (19%), on the school bus (10%), and in the bathroom or locker room (9%) (National Center for Educational Statistics, 2016).

SNAP! Unhypnotizing Hypnotherapy. Conscious and Subconscious – are they separate? Junod Etienne, guest.

Junod Etienne joins Dr. Bunny via phone from New York, to discuss Junod’s unique approach to hypnosis.

In Junod’s hypnosis practice, he factors in the conscious mind, as well as the subconscious mind.  He thinks of the conscious and the subconscious mind as husband and wife – a relationship.  This way of thinking, for Junod, goes back to his involvement with an organization called the Institute for Hermetic Philosophy (IHP).

Tune in for a very special interview and prepare to be inspired!

Junod  mentioned Dr. Darío Salas Sommer, the founder of the Institute for Hermetic Philosophy.  Learn more at: www.growyourbeing.com

About the Institute for Hermetic Philosophy:

We are a worldwide community of people who are dedicated to living life at a higher level of consciousness. We learn to explore our inner worlds to develop wisdom through practical exercises and a proven step-by-step curriculum that, when followed, consistently produces profound results in each person.

IHP fosters hope for a better world, peace and mutual understanding among all human beings, of all races, gender, religion, country or social status. We believe that by increasing our own levels of conscious awareness, we can change the lives of our families, our surroundings, and the world for the better.

About Dr. Darío Salas Sommer:

Dr. Darío Salas Sommer (March 4, 1935 – February 3, 2018) was the founder of the Institute for Hermetic Philosophy and Director of the global activities. He was a Chilean philosopher, scientist and humanist who was committed to the progress of humanity and to the internal development of the human being for more than four decades.

He devoted his life to the study of human consciousness, and he wrote about a very practical form of personal development that he referred to as “Operative Philosophy,” through which one can harmoniously develop oneself in the areas of spirituality, love, money, happiness and wisdom, along with many other positive attributes.
