PRESIDENT

By now I am sure many of you have adjusted to writing 2010 instead of 2009. While I do not get in the habit of writing New Year’s Resolution, I have thanked God for sparing my life for yet another year to be Blessed and to be a Blessing! I hope that InSpire has been a blessing to you as well. While it has been VERY difficult for InSpire over the last two years, I am convinced more than ever we are on target to receive what God has in store. I did lots of soul-searching and praying, and have determined there are many things I need to improve—the least of which being my communication with the InSpire Team. I thank each of you for sticking in there with us as we, like many companies, had to make some adjustments. I feel strongly that we are now back on track for many successful years ahead. I have asked our Senior Vice President Mr. Charles H.F. Davis I I I to lead our President’s Quarterly newsletter. Many of you “old heads” may recall that this was once a hard copy newsletter that goes to all team members. However, following this issue, the newsletter will be sent to you electronically through Charles’ office each quarter. Inside each edition, you will receive snippets of updates about what is happening with InSpire Enterprise and all the divisions (e.g. InSpire Magazine, InSpire Us Foundation, Be-InSpired Publishing, B-InSpired Talk Radio, Your Voice TV, InSpire Models, ILEAD Institute, etc). You will also get advance noticed of all major initiatives before they go public. Our New Marketing Director, Mr. Nate Cohen has vowed to be very proactive about making InSpire Magazine a Household Name. Our New Director of Marketing for the InSpire Us Foundation, Mr. Kenneth Guzman, has vowed to do the same. As result, you will see a major increase in our presence around the country. Please take a moment to read this newsletter and welcome our new team members to the InSpire Family. We look to see each of you in the Raleigh Durham n July 15-17, 2010. Again, Thank You! Respectfully,

!

InSpire Film Releases:

Let Your Haters Be Your Motivators - The Movie Let your haters Be Your Motivators was developed from a speech written by Dr. Lee Jones in 2006. The speech has been delivered throughout the United States and has received rave reviews. In fact, the speech has become one of Dr. J’s most requested speeches. So much so that a poster was designed outlining the major points of the speech. Haters are those people who consciously and subconsciously deliver and dump negative venom in our lives. Haters are people who typically do not understand their purpose for their lives, thus they are very uncomfortable with themselves. On many occasions, they have become so comfortable with negativity in

their own lives that they are not aware of how their behaviors and actions are being portrayed for the entire world to see. Unfortunately we live in a world where, in many cases, the Haters are all around us. InSpire is currently in negotiations with Best Buy national headquarters to have it placed in its stores across the country. The InSpire Team and cast will be kept abreast as negotiations progress. Please feel free to visit the web site at www.letyourhatersbeyourmotivators.com to meet the cast, watch the movie trailer, and behind the scenes interviews with cast members.

Y O U R V O I C E 5 0 0 th E P I S O D E Your Voice TV has been in existence since January 1996 and has taped over 500 TV Talk shows in the states of Washington, Florida, and New Jersey. To commemorate this momentous occasion, the TV crew has put together An exclusive behind the scenes look at Your Voice over the years. Witness history in the making as the cameras focus on highlighting some of the past Your Voice shows as well as some of the bloopers. Former guests speak about their experiences with Your Voice. Dr. J talks about the conception, the evolution and the future of Your Voice. Additionally, the city of Newark, NJ has agreed to pick-up the show starting March 1, 2010. A studio and camera crew has been identified and the final “set” will be approved by Dr. Jones in late January. The show will also be picked-up nationally on Axiom TV. You will receive additionally information about this in the coming months. President’s Quarterly
