I am thrilled to see this dream of my great friend James Love come to life. I attended high school with James and just want to share with you what stands out most to me about his character... He has a gift, a natural talent for being able to lead and inspire others with enthusiasm, integrity, sincerity, care and compassion. James is one of those remarkable people that leaves you feeling better about yourself for having known him.

I'm reminded of one of the best books I've ever read, called "Aspire: Discovering Your Purpose Through The Power Of Words", by Kevin Hall. In this literary masterpiece, there is a word Kevin discusses which is so in-line with the purpose and mission of ShoLove International... that word is: Inspire! By definition, it means to affect, guide, motivate or bring about by divine influence; to be the cause or source of; to fill with enlivening or exalting emotion; to breathe life into. When we support, encourage, and 'INSPIRE' other people, we touch their hearts and impact their lives.

I love this quote from Albert Schweitzer, "In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit."

James truly does 'breathe life into' others! He is an inspiration, he walks his talk and exemplifies the qualities that young people should seek to develop within themselves. It is a privilege and a pleasure to support and endorse this wonderful new opportunity James has created for the youth of today and leaders of tomorrow.

Thank you James for being one of those people who rekindles the inner spirit, or as Kevin Hall puts it... Ignites the fire within!

  1. I feel great joy and a sense of enormous pride when I see the path your passion and faith are leading you on. You inspire me. When I think of what you are undertaking , I am reminded of what the premise of a remarkable book called "The Butterfly Effect", is all about. "With a little perspective, you can live a life of permanent purpose." "Everything you do matters." "Every move you make, every action you take matters." "Not just to you, your family, your business, or hometown." "Everything you do matters TO ALL OF US FOREVER." Your hunger to be a servant leader and mentor to those in need will give meaning and purpose to those you reach. I'm in!!!

  2. James Love certainly has an appropriate name "Love" as that fits him perfectly. James and I worked together at Xerox for many years and not only is James an outstanding businessman, he is an superb human being. I am not surprised at all that James is reaching-out to help others who are suffering. His strength comes from his own experiences and most importantly from his faith in God. Bravo James and God Bless you my friend.

  3. I'll try to put this to good use immediaetly.

  4. Amazing!

  5. Kevin KillionRegarding: We don’t think that we can do what we love and get paid for it, because of a bleeif that we shouldn’t charge for something that we love to do. This is a common bleeif among some people, particularly progressivists, who somehow think that somehow there is something wrong with business or earning a profit. It's hard to keep true to common sense when you have the spouse of the president of the United States tell a graduating class that instead of going into a business they should go into public service , meaning, working for a heartless bureaucracy on the taxpayers' dime. Earning a salary, making a profit, and having a successful business are positive indicators that you are performing tasks that other people want and need!

  6. Thank You James

    I appreciate your response and I will definitely look forward to speaking
    with you. Isn’t the world a funny place sometimes; I’ve been using my wife
    as a sounding board the last couple of years to communicate as to what this
    life is all about and how my career serves as an extension of my purpose,
    and she’s offered me a boat load of advice and instructed me to look inside
    myself, while still reaching out to others to enrich my life. She is, by
    the way, very talented at this and currently studying to be a youth wellness
    coach right now. She tells me often to do good, reach out and accept
    others’ help, and learn along the journey. Well, after a while I started to
    listen and apply these bits of advice (much to my personal anguish at
    times). It hasn’t been long and I’m starting to finally see the richness of
    life. I have, by and large, been mostly cynical in my past. Hearing about
    someone like you (I went to your webpage) offer so many young folks hope and
    resources to self reflect and build that confidence in an otherwise hopeless
    thought pattern that most of us are conditioned to; it really makes me smile
    and think. I think we are all put here to help each other out, even in the
    smallest of ways. My wife would always tell me that I would find my purpose
    if I listened and learned. Well, I’ve been listening, and I’ve met so many
    great folks, to include yourself, who really can inspire and change things.
    The reason I said the world is a funny place is because once you realize
    that you will be provided with what you need, the world/spirit/God/Divine
    (whatever you believe) has a funny way of producing that for you. So, thank
    you again for reaching out, and thank you for what YOU do for our country
    (helping those who need help the most).
