“. . . do it from a place of love.”
When we started SoulVision Magazine in late 2018, there were many naysayers who questioned if the world was ready for another publication. We took that leap of faith and now our articles are read by over 100,000 people each month, and we are reprinted and distributed in over 261 cities around the globe. This issue is our way of saying thank you to all of our readers and supporters.
In this issue, we continue to bring light and love by showcasing a pioneering young leader who is vegan, a business leader, a fitness professional, and a motivational speaker. Yes, I’m talking about the sensational, albeit lesser-known, Brandi Harvey. Her cover story will amaze you. We also have the good fortune of featuring Ken Harvey, former NFL superstar turned creative writing phenomena. Filmmaker Lauren Meyer and artist Acori Honzo are in this month’s issue. Buckle up! We plan to keep pushing as we bring you a new look with SoulVision. Thank you, again, for supporting our work and check out SoulVision.TV – it’s FREE!
Thoughts on Corona . . . .
When COVID-19 hit, we realized that we could not stop our work to lift others with positive and inspirational stories. Even with all the madness in the world, we should continue to smile. Why? Because you woke up. When we have the gift of life, we have the promise of hope and the lift of faith. Hope is our comfort in the storm. Faith is our guide in the night. The two combined allow us to make a way out of no way. Accordingly, no matter the circumstances, let’s all choose to live each day rejoicing! The resources below may be helpful as you self-quarantine to protect yourself, your family and the world:
Free Classes – Currently, all eight Ivy Leagues—Brown, Harvard, Cornell, Princeton, Dartmouth, Yale, Columbia, and the University of Pennsylvania—are offering 450 active, free courses across a range of topics digitally. All you have to do is visit Class Central – https://www.classcentral.com/, find the area of study you’re most interested in and sign up through that university’s website.
Free Audio Books – Audible, my favorite audiobook company, just announced that a large selection of audiobooks will be available to anyone for free for as long as the schools are closed. Enjoy! www.stories.audible.com.
Free Online Library, Art and Video Chat – Caribu, one of the best inventions of 2019 according to Time Magazine, is allowing FREE and UNLIMITED access to their app for all families and any caring adults who would like to read live to children impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Caribu allows kids to read and draw in a real-time video-call with family and friends. Tap the link to download the app and read our “Mr. Business” series and over 1,000 other great children’s books (http://bit.ly/download-caribu) for free as we fight COVID-19.
Soulidifly Productions, the parent company of SoulVision Magazine, keeps pushing the envelope. We launched SoulVision.TV on all major platforms (Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire) and all mobile devices in the first quarter of 2020 – on Valentine’s Day. We released our first international film, Joseph, in Nigeria and Ghana, and partnered with AMC to release the film in select theaters in the US. The book series, Mr. Business, also made its debut on Caribu.com, the world’s leading video read-along app. Finally, our romantic comedy feature film, Love Dot Com: The Social Experiment, continues to do well on Netflix. We thank everyone who supports the work. We do it from a place of love. Stay safe and remember a positive attitude is contagious too.
