We had the good fortune of connecting with J. Dwayne Garnett and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi J. Dwayne, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
Simply, put unity. We recognize that there is a need to bring people together. The end goal is to help individuals obtain personal fulfillment and establish meaningful interconnections (relationships). We understand the value of relationships, relationship with self, and others. We have uncovered an approach and technique where everyone brings something to the table and focusing on the things that connect us.

What should our readers know about your business?
We’ve designed an eight-week paradigm that focuses on the internal workings of self, assisting others to reduce the tendency to rely on restrictive ideologies, with an intent to obtain an awareness of the complications associated with exercising limiting beliefs and how they play a vital role in hindering personal fulfillment and meaningful interconnections. We aim to prevent the relegating assumptive stance regarding love, while partnering with community members and organizations in providing courses that provide the skills necessary to permeate love and facilitate random acts of kindness in efforts to achieve unity and cultural appreciation. Additionally, gaining the confidence to promote unity, love, and random acts of kindness while providing love education, love advocacy, and love wellness. This program will consist of five weeks of instruction, lessons will take place one day a week and each session will convene no more than two hours each session. The meeting times will be based on the participants’ collective needs. Also, there will be two weeks to complete a Random Acts of Kindness Project, and a Commencement Ceremony will be held during the eighth week. Throughout the development process, there will be 40 days of reflective positive affirmation writing prompts as well. During this training, we aim to partner with community members and organizations in providing an exclusive Love Is A Parable Training that is geared with the intent of producing certified love advocates, who will, in turn, make a positive impact within their communities by permeating love and facilitating random acts of kindness. This program is best suited for the adult learner but may work well with teens. For children and adolescents, please view our Jr. Advocate Initiative for more information. Through our training, one will become a Certified Love Advocate equipped to: Implement restrictive and assumptive thinking reduction practices Develop the skills essential for love advocacy Discover ways to identify love and maintain a positive self-image Establish personal fulfillment and meaningful relationships Facilitate Random Acts of Kindness Projects in his/her local community Discover four ways to identify love Initiate four ways to begin loving oneself and others With the construction of our curriculum, nearly 20 years of andragogy experience and a decade of behavioral health and health care management experience was taken into account. In addition to bringing a much-needed curriculum to the community, be confident in knowing the level of expertise utilized in its development and design. We pride ourselves in providing life-changing, practical deliverable content that is relevant and relational.
