Tune in when Patricia interviews John Hope Bryant author of the new book, How the Poor Can Save Capitalism. Bryant has a surprising message for business and political leaders. America's poor have the power to turn our economy around--and he has real-life case examples and success stories to prove it. The poor represent as much as 70 percent of our population, and include everyone from the single mother earning minimum wage to the married accountant earning $50,000. These people may not sound powerful, but they are--once they begin to earn, spend, save, hire others, and pay taxes. In How the Poor Can Save Capitalism, Bryant presents a bipartisan, concrete plan that gives poor communities access to financial education, entrepreneurial support, bank accounts, and decent credit scores so they can be part of a healthy free enterprise system. John Hope Bryant currently serves on the President Obama's Advisory Council on Financial Capability for Young Americans, and also served under George W. Bush as Chairman of the Subcommittee on the Underserved and Community Empowerment during the George W. Bush presidency. He is also founder, chairman, and CEO of Operation HOPE, a nonprofit banker for the working poor, underserved, and struggling middle class, which provides financial literacy for youth, financial capability for communities, and financial dignity for all.

Tune in when Patricia interviews Pat Williams, senior vice president of the Orlando Magic and author of more than 30 successful books, including How To Be Like Walt: Capturing the Disney Magic Every Day of Your Life. The book reveals what no other biography ever has: the soul of an American legend. While many recent biographies of Walt Disney have reveled in the negative, this book takes an honest but positive look at the man behind the myth. Williams, whose personal fascination with Disney began when he relocated to Orlando, Florida in 1986 to build a new NBA basketball team, considers Walt Disney to be one of his mentors. In fact, his team, the Magic, was named in honor of one of Disney's most famous creations, the Magic Kingdom. The name was chosen not only because the team's proximity to Disney World, but also as a tribute to Walt Disney, whose "magical personality" touched his community. How to Be Like Walt follows Disney from his humble childhood years on a farm outside of Kansas City until his death in December of 1966. What is clear throughout the book is a life of imagination, perseverance and optimism. And, although some controversy accompanied Disney's legacy, his impact lives on in the heart and minds of people all around the globe. Pat Williams will discuss How to Be Like Walt.
