There it is…the return of the Macks! While some kids get set for new math, other folks can watch Michael Strahan & Steve Harvey. Over the summer there was a break from doing their shows. But Harvey kicked-off a new season with Simone Manuel on her Olympics race and Strahan joined GMA on the regular.

In ABC interview he said “I think we all get so tied up in what’s going on in work and all these other things that we forget that life is supposed to be fun. I try to bring that same attitude, as much fun and play you can bring to a job.” That’s what it means for them to connect with passion full-time and dreams full-speed.

It’s easy to lose count of how many gigs they got. Strahan does NFL Sunday on FOX. Then he’ll shuttle back to NY for his weekly GMA co-hosting duties. No wonder his book is entitled Wake Up Happy. You can’t run like this without loving what you do. These guys are sure to mix fun with getting back in the flow.

Harvey is no slouch either. When he’s not on syndicated radio, he’s cutting-up on his TV talk show. Then there’s Family Feud and Little Big Shots for extra measure. In between tapings he tries to share with his audiences a few nuggets from what’s on his mind. He too is raking in the dollars and sharing good sense.

They inspire us to keep it movin’. In a Huff Post Op-ed Harvey wrote “If you keep your faith… there is an appointed time for you and it’ll bust open for you. This journey we’re on isn’t about who gets there first, it’s about who hangs in there until the end.” As celebrity Hot Steppers they want to see folks living good!

After visit to the ocean or the lake. Harvey kicked-off new season on Olympics race. Strahan joined GMA as a regular in the place.

In ABC interview he once said. Not to let work and stuff drive us dead. Tied-up in the goings on at the job daily. Forgetting life’s supposed to be fun really. That same attitude taken from the playground. As seen on TV with fun all around. What it means to have full-time passion. And full-speed dreams in rotation.

Easy to lose count of the gigs they got. And the many ways they stay market hot. Strahan on FOX NFL Sunday show. Covering tackles and hits blow by blow. Then back to NY’s GMA set. Getting there fast on red-eye jet. Wake Up Happy his personal book thing. For how he brings fun and flow to the work ring.

Harvey’s got some get-up too. No slouch like animals tend to do. When not radio then it’s TV talk. There’s Family Feud and the Little Big Shots walk. In between he tries to share a nugget. To audience members’ goals on their bucket. Raking in the dollars, sharing good sense. For extra measure boosting confidence.

They inspire folks to keep it movin’. If nothing else just keep on groovin’. Reminding us to keep the faith and jump. At the appoint time to get over the hump. Journey not so much about who gets there first. But for those who hang in there past the thirst. As celeb Hot Steppers wanting to live good, not worst.

Some celebs take time to get sexy with it on the red carpet. They can strut their stuff and let lots of parts hang-out. But for Beyoncé she keeps upping the ante as an Entertainer. She’s now become the winning-est artist in VMAs history. On the show she had her formation in place which was good enough for fans.

Now Rihanna’s acceptance speech might remind us of a quote seen in the Southside with You movie. It was Ellen Johnson who said “The size of your dreams must always exceed your capacity to achieve them.” After a breakout performance, it’s how the best of the best keep their dreams going for more.

Bey showed-up on the carpet with her posse along with daughter Blue Ivy. It was a case of “like mother like daughter” in matching outfits. Before the evening was done she had made multiple wardrobe changes. From start to finish it was just Bey being Bey as a maven in fashion sense and work style.

Even ABCs Good Morning America got into Bey as a social media trending phenomenon. They saw how over a million tweets were posted in about an hour. It was a 16-minute set that rocked the stage and brought down the house. But even after all that she still had game left and didn’t seem out of breath.

So the rest of Johnson’s quote says “If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough.” Beyoncé went from southern girl to Queen Bey. Rihanna grew her Bajan roots to being RiRi. Getting past the fear took guts & soul. It’s a case of dreams becoming so big where some stars are known on first name basis.

Some celebs like to get their sexy on. Whether red carpet of til break-a-dawn. They strut their stuff with flare. Lots of parts hang-out like they don’t care. But Beyonce keeps upping the ante. As major star where showbiz’s not shanty. Winning-est artist in VMA history. Good enough for fans or a first-time story.

Now Rihanna got vanguard award. Speech reminded us that she’s broad. A quote from movie Southside with You. On making hopes & dreams come thru. Must be bigger than normal capacity. Like Prez Obama who brought audacity. A breakout performance to rise again. Where dreams will build more than then.

Bey showed-up with her girls in tow. Along with Blue Ivy and her hair bow. Case of “like mother like daughter outfit.” The cuteness for sure just won’t quit. Before all was said and done. Had multiple wardrobe changes for fun. From start to finish much fashion sense. Her work style’s without pretense.

Even ABCs GMA made a note. For How Bey is a modern day GOAT. As social media posts climbed in the million. And money in the bank of the gazillion. A 16-minute set of rocking the stage. With a mix of consciousness like a sage. Even after the flash dancing was over. She had game and breath leftover.

As Johnson’s quote continues to say. Big dreams should scare you so don’t play. A southern girl now known as Queen Bey. Another grew Bajan roots to being RiRi. Getting past the fear to guts and soul. It’s how movers and shakers roll. Dreams becoming bigger than oasis. And stars called on first name basis.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Breakup Gives New Meaning to an Economic Paradigm Shift

Theme:– Operation J.U.M.P. For Jobs, Justice & Unsung Dreams

It seems in the space of one week we went from relationship hookup to relationship breakup (not with the same couple). First it was news of NBCs Savannah Guthrie tying the knot and adding that they’re expecting. But it’s Gwyneth Paltrow’s breakup that’s giving new meaning to an economic paradigm shift.

After 10 years of marriage to musician Chris Martin, Paltrow announced that they’re parting. It’s not the first time that celebrities have called it quits. But it’s the first time that a separation has been referred to publicly as a “conscious uncoupling.” Who knew that there was a more sophisticated way to say divorce?

Apparently, while the term is new to the cultural zeitgeist, it’s not new to the marriage therapist who coined the phrase. The idea is to approach the separation with mutual respect and human sensibilities. This way they can minimize the level of feelings getting hurt and pocketbooks getting burnt.

Wouldn’t it be nice if another approach were to be tried when dealing with the long-term unemployed? They have been experiencing a job market separation for a long time. Operation J.U.M.P. might call it a “conscious re-coupling” into the job market where they can re-connect with a sense of economic worth.

For Paltrow and Martin things are coming to a bitter-sweet end. So their “conscious uncoupling” will hopefully make the money decisions less painful. In the case of the long-term unemployed they’d like to see an economic paradigm shift that moves their self-worth from “bitter-sour to dollars per hour.”

Footnote: Operation J.U.M.P. is a new sophistication in human resources that provides a social change and empowerment approach of advancing public policy initiatives and professional incentives for jobs, justice and unsung dreams.
