Tinesha Longley speaks up and speak out about mental health - Jan 13, 2020 - 7:53:10 AM

TineshaLongley_1.jpg
A beautiful flower with a bright smile and creative mind, Tinesha was considered just shy and introverted. “I lived in the world of my thoughts,” she recalled.   However, hidden beneath the surface, deep in her head and heart were layers of internalized pain and suppressed traumatic experiences unacknowledged or overlooked by those around her. “Growing up in a very toxic and abusive home, I struggled with depression and anxiety all my life but didn't realize it as mental illness. The struggle was always present internally so the discovery never really happened,” Tinesha explained. As a result, her fragile petals began to wither and fall, leaving only the stem...

Jeannie Thompson launches new book ‘Bahamian Tapestry’ - Nov 14, 2019 - 5:00:08 PM

_KLS9093_1.jpg
Jeannie Thompson began writing plays when she was 8 years old. In the days when Sir Clement Maynard was at the helm of the Ministry of Tourism and there was an urgent need to reform our people’s attitudes toward visitors, Minister Clement Maynard called on the sharp intellect and creativity of Jeannie Thompson, and she delivered two memorable radio soap operas,  “The Fergusons of Farm Road” and “Sam Finley’s Sandcastle” which, were hugely effective in helping to shape what is now today the legendary warm Bahamian hospitality. Other works of Ms. Thompson followed, enriching the repertoire of the Dundas Theatre...

BONA5D BITS to "Fueling Your Finance Fire" Let's Talk About Financial Literacy - Jun 2, 2019 - 7:38:31 PM

Headshot_Pamela_1_.png
Finances can be a taboo topic for some, but it is a necessity for all. As I often say, “when you pull back the layers of any life circumstance, you will typically find a $ sign at the bottom”. Just as the bottom in the context of a house represents the foundation, in personal finance, fundamental financial knowledge is the foundation. In both cases, if the foundation is not solid, what is built upon it will not be sustainable.

So, though the BONA5D BITS I will share are not all encompassing or as comprehensive as would be covered in a BONA5DCC seminar...
