In my travels around the world talking to people for a living, I have met some of the most amazing people. But the one thing that strikes me is that many of them are Veterans. They are the folks ready to talk, stand up for the country, their family and are the kindest people in the world. I know i am not the first person to say this statement… The veterans DO NOT get what they deserve
Many people say they want to help the troops, and the Veterans, but many fall short, because we have our own things to care of in our lives. So when I read about a company and it’s focus is our veterans I want to share their stories, read on!

BVGiWear was born from the idea that we all have a hero inside and given the opportunity we can make a difference.
Using their expertise, Dr. G, an ophthalmologist, and Mr. B, a military glass engineer, founded BVGiWear. As military veterans in recovery, both founders created BVGiWear as a vehicle to support the BG Veterans of Valor Foundation. The majority of our proceeds will go to supporting treatment of Veterans in need as well as to support addiction research and training… These funds go directly to training medical professionals in addiction rehabilitation with an emphasis on veteran needs. Block grants are also set aside for veterans who cannot afford to pay for their own treatment.

The V.O.V. Foundation is honored to have initiated efforts in collaboration with the Betty Ford Center and other treatment facilities throughout Southern California who are all working in concert for this cause. BVGiWear is also working toward building our new labs which will eventually produce all parts of the BVGiWear Sunglass line here in the USA. Built and supported by US Veterans.

Steven Bernstein Director and Writer is our guest this week on ActingUpRadio.com
So this is where I tell you actors and industry folks that if you don’t do social media you are missing the boat. That if you don’t engage in a proper way on your social media, you most likely are the type of person that is waiting for opportunities instead of running after them and if you don’t know this by now, life does not run after you, death does.
Where am I going with this, well our guest today Steven Bernstein Director and Writer constantly in our conversation on the show talked about being fearless, going after it, look at things in a different way. Hence, the way I got Steve on the interview. I “Lightly” invite him on Instagram. When I say lightly, I mean no heavy handed, constant direct messages and no Me Me Me request.
Take it from me that when you get successful at anything, social media brings out a lot of people that believe it is ok to ask for anything. Things I would not even give you if you were standing in front of me and had my attention. Anyway, using your social media the right way can get you conversations with all types of people and possibly opportunities.
So, my social media tip of the day: If it would bother you, it bothers others, be respectful and engage with your social media followers don’t engulf them.
