A Month for Manifesting Miracles and Love

Posted on Updated on

zakiyyah-profile

In light of the annual Valentine’s Day hoopla and romance energy that permeates the atmosphere, February – that sacred time of the Aquarius – is an opportune month for manifesting miracles and love. It is also the month we celebrate Black History and my birthday on the 11th (Yeah Claudette!). And because I am ever the romantic optimist and cheerleader for the underdog, it is imperative that I make room for joyful periods during the cold winter months. So, I am happy to announce that Cider Enterprises Book Club is featuring author Zakiyyah Ameedah (Zee) and her book, “Jamaica: A Memoir of Miracles, Manifestations, Love,” on the February 16th conference call at 7 pm.

Graduation Reflections About My Business Development Process

Posted on Updated on

Claudette grad
Claudette Redic, Owner Cider Enterprises

Reflections about my business development process abound during this season of graduations. I am proud to be a graduate of the Sunshine Enterprises Community Business Academy. It confirmed my 2014 affirmation that “I AM more than enough!” and my conviction that “I deserve the best.” Completion dispelled the fears I had erected: I am too old to learn; I might have a hard time adjusting to a rigorous twelve weeks of study; would I be able to apply the information obtained to help myself and others too? And I can proudly declare, “Yes I can!” I practice and apply the things I learned about business for myself first and then with others. You see, I have to walk the talk and now feel fulfilled in getting my own house in order.

Featured Guest Identifies Herself as a Christian Witch During Our Book Club Call

Posted on Updated on

Rev. Valerie Love on CiderThe Cider Enterprises Book Club Conference Call featuring Rev. Valerie Love was too hot to handle after she un-apologetically and unabashedly identified herself as a Christian Witch. Her statement left me speechless for a moment and had me pacing the floor of my home in quick time! Questions raced through my brain … What was I thinking featuring a Witch? What would my callers say?

Valerie LoveIn doing my research on Rev. Valerie, I had chose to ignore this ‘Magikal’ information she provided on her social media sites. I assumed that since she had so many other things she did “on the regular,” any call inquiries would be satisfied with the ‘traditional’ aspects of her work. After all, as a seasoned woman of many uplifting practices, products, thoughts and events, I knew Rev. Valerie had enough ‘good stuff’ to demonstrate being an “overcomer.” And based on the reports I had received from the many people I follow, I also knew she was able to tell her stories with love and enlightenment.

Having heard numerous testimonies from quite a few people within my circle of business and personal friends, I knew I would have to have Rev. Love on the call eventually.  Then news came through the ‘true vine’ that she will be moving to Bali, Indonesia real soon!  That news put some fire and urgency under my intentions, and now I’m proud to say that Rev. Val will be on the Thursday, March 19, 2015 Cider Enterprises Book Club Conference Call at 7 p.m. CST/ 8 p.m. EST.

Press Forward & Shift to a Higher Level with Featured Author Jo Anne Meekins

Posted on Updated on

Promo J. Meekins 2.2015Author Jo Anne Meekins and her “Living a Vocal, Valued and Victorious Life” three book series on healing and ‘upgrading’ brought so much excitement and interest to the January Cider Enterprises Book Club Conference Call that we only got to ‘skim’ the surface. We were so engaged that we actually only discussed Volume 1, “How To Uncover, Heal & Release Painful Life Experiences.”  Thank you Jo Anne! I had to put Jo Anne on the spot, even before the call ended, and request her return for February because there was too much to discuss in just one call.

In this second interview, Jo Anne will share more about her mission to Empower Women to speak their truth out loud, value themselves, and BE victorious over unfavorable circumstances and situations.”  This series is a must have for reference and referral.

  • Vol. 1: How To Uncover, Heal & Release Painful Life Experiences
  • Vol. 2: How to Press Forward & Shift to a Higher Level
  • Vol. 3: How To Know God Better & Love Yourself More
