If we think Oprah and Joel Osteen aren’t busy enough, think again. She just announced her new program with Weight Watchers. A few days ago she signed a book deal for her memoirs. As things go now, they’d probably love to send an upbeat message in a bottle, fortune cookie or greeting card wish this holiday.

Last week she said to the NY Times “All of my experiences, even the painful ones, have been there to teach me about life…I hope my story inspires people to live the highest, fullest expression of themselves.” ‘O & Jo’ know that the path from employee of the month to person of the year is paved in Yule’s gold.

Part of her ‘love yourself’ message is seen in the new Beyond the Scale campaign. She’s ready to support others in focusing on their highest value as they move ‘beyond the sales’ of the holiday season. There’s no wealth without health. There’s no dream without the goals. There’s no great without the wait.

Osteen might say how “Yule’s gold runs circles around fool’s gold.” He might even agree that the Yule Factory is a place where you find ways to add more passion at work, purpose to the day and savor to the flavor. This way we get not just a big paycheck but also in the words of James Brown, ‘a big payback.’

Morgan Freeman recently stopped by Osteen’s mega church in Houston. Freeman is doing a TV special on stories of faith. We all know the value of a precious commodity like gold. Plus, we see how Oprah and Osteen impact their fold. They know going from today to a new day is in what next time will hold.

Think Oprah and Osteen not busy enough? That’s just talking off the cuff. She endorses new Weight Watchers gig. Days before signs book deal that’s big. For her memoirs over the years. The ups, downs and the cheers. They’d send upbeat message in a bottle. As fortune cookie, card or wish not so subtle.

Last week telling NY Times. All experiences aren’t like sour limes. Teaching her something about life and style. Lasting with her for a while. Hopes to inspire people to their highest. Where self-expression reaches the fullest. ‘O & Jo’ know employee of the month isn’t old. And person of the year is paved in Yule’s gold.

A ‘love yourself’ message she tells. A Beyond the Scale campaign she sells. Ready to support people’s truest value self. Beyond the sales and holiday elf. Not just about going after wealth. With no reasonable portion of health. No dreams without having some goals. No great without the wait in our souls.

Osteen might share a Yule’s gold tip. From circles around a fool’s gold trip. Adding notes about the Yule Factory story. Where passion at work finds more glory. Putting more purpose in every day. Helps savor the flavor in every way. Not just about the big paycheck. Take it from James Brown in the big payback.

Morgan Freeman stopped by Osteen’s spot. To see why his mega church’s so hot. Freeman taping new TV special of late. On stories of faith, hope, so forget the hate. There’s value in precious stone like gold. As seen in how ‘O & Jo’ rally their fold. For going from today to new day in what next time might hold.

Who’s going to be on Empire next season? Rumor has it Denzel Washington and Oprah are waiting in the wings. The show has taken-off and averages around 15 million weekly viewers. Joel Osteen isn’t looking to join the cast. So what would Osteen do or Howard say to shake things up in their empires?

Osteen’s no stranger to big numbers. His 30,000-member church broadcast is seen in millions of households. They both had to overcome initial doubts on their breakout journeys. Osteen wasn’t sure he’d be able to step into his father’s shoes. Howard didn’t think America was ready for Empire.

Some people feel Osteen has expanded his territory by “softening the Message.” Others say Empire’s success is in how the show handles pop culture themes even if they’re eyebrow-raising. Plus, the mix of music and celebrity guests helps too. In either case, they’ve both been able to tap into people’s interests.

They’ve taken different paths in shaking things up. Osteen’s path has been to build on a legacy. Howard’s path has been to push the envelope. As modern-day trailblazers there’re both making waves and getting raves. They’ve seen their share of controversy and experienced the backlash of jealousy.

In entertainment it’s usually “1 for the money, 2 for the show and 3 for the hook” to shake things up. Ratings drive revenue from advertising. With Osteen it‘s less vain and on another plane. In either case they’ve turned a project into a production that has staying power. That’s true in showbiz and ministry.

Who’ll be on Empire next season? Word is Denzel and Oprah have a reason. Said to be waiting in the wings. Let’s see if the fat lady sings. Serving 15 million weekly viewers. #1 spot with young-adults and some teenagers. Osteen and Howard on the media wires. For what they’d do to shake-up their empires.

To big numbers Osteen’s no stranger. In the pulpit Howard’s no danger. 30,000-member broadcast in the millions. Hollywood actor and man of opinions. Both overcame initial doubts on the way. Before landing a bigger payday. Osteen stepping into father’s shoes. Howard flirting with rhythm and blues.

Some feel Osteen became soft on Message. Expanding his territory not the Passage. Others say Empire’s success is in the bag. In how show avoids n-word and fag. Pop culture themes seem eyebrow-raising. Music stars and celebs in the making. The heart of people’s interests is what they’re tapping.

Taking different paths to the big house. Shaking things up like cat and mouse. Osteen builds on his legacy heels. Howard pushes the envelope wheels. Modern-day trailblazers making waves. Growing followers and getting raves. Having had their share of controversy. And the backlash of people’s jealousy.

Entertainment usually “1 for the money, 2 for the show. 3 for the hook, let the good times flow.” Where ratings drive revenue from the ads. To shake things up beyond the fads. With Osteen it’s less vain. He’s working on another plane. Production projects with staying power. True for showbiz and the ministry hour.
