A New Way to Shine with Highlights, Insights and Media-bites that’s Exciting (Old-School Flava)

Shaq O’Neal brought the house down at the recent Basketball Hall of Fame induction ceremony. He had folks rollin’ in their seats. T.D. Jakes showed up at AOL’s Build Forum to talk about his new daytime Talk Show. Shaq went from good to great while Oprah hopes Jakes can go from God to reaching His greatest.

Jakes said his Oprah takeaway on success in biz is to “Surround yourself with a team that accessorizes your talents and who use their gifts not to compete with you but to complete the mission of what you’re trying to do.” It’s why some people make it big in the game and others make it bigger than folks expected.

Since retiring from the NBA Shaq has gone on to become a major branding icon. He’s seen on TV in ads and on TNTs basketball pre-game coverage. One thing for sure about Shaq is that he’s got a secure personality. He’s played on a few teams over his career, even joining with those who were once his rivals.

Many know how Oprah reigned as Queen of daytime TV for 25 years. She left that gig to launch her OWN cable network. It’s not surprising then that Jakes would be a fit for her channel. Beyond preacher insights, he’s done many things in uplifting entertainment. Now he’s ready to push a new door of possibility.

No matter where he played, teammates say Shaq kept things loose. For Jakes, one of his breakouts was “Woman Thou Art Loosed.” Shaq getting inducted and Jakes continuing to be a factor is a testament to their ingenuity. Maybe it’s these optimistic rules of the game that make us gracious and catch greatness.

They say Shaq brought the house down. Doesn’t take much for him to clown. Hall of Fame fans rollin’ in their seats. Another scoop of Shaqtin-A-Fool treats. T.D. Jakes makes launch of new show. Doing it in the Oprah flow. Shaq went from good to great. Oprah hopes Jakes puts fresh greatness on his plate.

Jakes giving his Oprah takeaway. On what it takes to win at biz play. Surround yourself with a team. That can accessorize your dream. In using their gifts for the making. To complete the mission for the taking. What you’re trying to do. Is raise it big with your crew. Even bigger than what some folks can chew.

Since calling it quits from the court. Shaq’s gone on to be a good sport. As major branding icon reel. Seen on TV ads and TNT’s man of steel. One thing for sure he brings. A secure personality that zings. Having played on a few teams in his career. Joining with those who were rivals to bear.

Many know Oprah as once daytime queen. Now she’s got OWN as her new scene. Left gig going on to next chapter. Of her Talk Show ever after. Not a surprise for Jakes being a fit. On her channel where insights get spit. Beyond preacher and all the way up-lifter. To embrace new door of possibility muster.

No matter where he’s played. Teammates would have loved if he stayed. Saying he always kept things loose. As if sipping on grey goose. For Jakes a breakout moment was his. When “Woman Thou Art Loosed” did fizz. Being inducted & staying connected. Testament to optimistic ingenuity of the respected.

Tip: Making it big might take being connected, but making it great takes some ingenuity of the respected.

Talkback: Was Shaq calling-out Kobe in his speech just another way of keeping things loose?

With Higher Hopes, Bolder Dreams and Greater Teams (Old-School Flava)

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.

The sounds of bells ringing can be heard on Wall Street. Some are wondering if this latest move by Oprah is a fad or for real. She’s made a name for others by putting her stamp of approval on their brands and products. So Oprah teams-up with Weight Watchers for a lifestyle boost to butts and bank accounts.

The company’s chairman says “Oprah is a force of nature connecting with people on a very personal level to live inspired lives. This will accelerate our transformation and expand our ability to impact millions of people worldwide.” To keep the ‘awesome sauce’ flowing isn’t all about Keeping-up with the Kardashians.

Oprah has struggled with weight over the years. Her highest rated daytime show episode was when she carted 67 pounds of fat on stage to symbolize her weight-loss success. Weight Watchers has also been struggling with its ‘weight’ on Wall Street. So the value in struggle is in how they’re turning pain into profit.

That’s a perfect launch point as people think about new goals and dreams for 2016. Oprah might be doing the same as she looks at her OWN Media Empire and personal desire. It seems Weight Watchers is poised to help consumers experience a butt-lift while Oprah hopes consumers consider a lifestyle shift.

The real excitement is what the Oprah-effect will mean. She believes so much in the Weight Watchers program that she decided to invest in the company and join the board. It’s as if she’s fallen in love again with self, service and significance. That’s how she keeps the ‘awesome sauce’ flowing by living her best life.

People making money in the grands. Teams-up with Weight Watchers app maker. For lifestyle boost to butts and her banker.

Company chairman thinks Oprah’s a force of nature. Connecting with people is her signature. To live their lives a little higher. Keeping their passion close and on fire. Thinks this will impact millions worldwide. And get others off their hide. In keeping the ‘awesome sauce’ flowing. While keeping their fan-base growing.

Oprah’s struggle with weight well-known. Highest rated daytime show was bad to the bone. Carted 67 pounds of fat on the stage. To celebrate her weight-loss and turning the page. Weight Watchers looking to fix its struggle on Wall Street. Turning pain into profit from Oprah’s power seat.

A perfect launch point for dreamers. Also with goals and diet-conscious seekers. Oprah doing the same for OWN empire. Connecting her brand to personal desire. Seems Weight Watchers poised to help some see a butt-lift. While Oprah hopes they’ll choose a lifestyle shift.

Real excitement about the Oprah-effect gains. And what it means for nuts, fruits and grains. Seeing $70 million stock rise in one day. On the Board is where she’ll have her say. It’s as if she’s fallen in love again. With self, significant service and a best friend. That’s how ‘awesome sauce’ keeps flowing to the end.
