Rise and Walk: A New You, A New Year

By Michael Teague (Mentor)

It is said that a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.  Why not take a step toward a new life?  The Rise and Walk! Program seeks to lift its listeners from where they are to where they desire to be. 

Michael D. Teague, author, publisher, and peak performance coach, has launched The Rise and Walk! Program in order to accomplish this objective.  I`ve heard it said that inspiration is fine.  Yet, information will help your information to reach a destination.  I want the Rise and Walk! Program to help people combine their inspiration with time-tested, reality-based information in order to change their lives. 

Michael has partnered with Judyth Piazza, radio personality and CEO of The SOP in order to produce his program, Rise and Walk!  The tag line of Michael`s program is, We`re promoting positive change for positive people! ? 

Michael Teague has a passion for people; he is driven each day by a burning desire to see people change, ? says Hasani Pettiford, an author, motivational speaker, and corporate trainer.  Michael believes that the first step to change involves acknowledging that a change needs to be made.  If we want to be a better spouse, parent, sibling, employee, entrepreneur, friend, partner, or philanthropist, the key is admitting that we need to change. 

Once we admit that we need to change, and then we need a plan for change.  My program is my effort to provide daily information and inspiration, in order to assist them on the road of change. ? 

Michael`s thinks that, as people commit themselves to undergo a continual process of change, they will live a new life.  Their life will involve better choices, beliefs, and behaviors, which will improve any and every area of their lives. 

Michael`s program is adapted from his book, Rise and Walk!  Seven Steps to Purposeful Living.  It is an independently-published, inspirational, self-help book for men.  Though directed to men, the steps to purposeful living presented in his book are universal. 

Michael also is the Founder and Senior Pastor of Christ Fellowship International Church, located in Piscataway, New Jersey.  He serves as the Bereavement Coordinator for Hospice of New Jersey.  He is a graduate of Dartmouth College and Princeton Theological Seminary.  Finally, Michael is married, has two children, and lives in Piscataway.  Interested persons can access his program at or iTunes.
