The host of a satirical news show.  He’s helping people grasp current events through political comedy and candid interviews.

The local women’s boutique owner.  She helps women feel younger and sexier through fashion and fun experiences.

These people are helping people.  The hard way.  Using positivity.  And love.

It’s much easier, however, to sell using anger, fear and insecurities.  Just look at Dr. Oz, Fox News or Victoria’s Secret.  They may be pursuing their passion.  But are they really helping people?
