If you ever get to meet Richard “Big Daddy” Salgado and walk with him next to his shoes for the day it is quite an event in itself. It could even make you say if he ever meets the woman of his dreams that she would be on top of the world. When Fay came into Richards life they began to build their own dream team with relationship chemistry.

In this Exclusive interview Team SALGADO sat down with me to share insight from inside the mind of Sports and Entertainments two of a kind and through their name SALGADO, Richard and Fay share their life as new husband and wife.

The S is for Special: What is it about your spouse that is oh so special?

(F) He never leaves my side.

(R) She’s as smart as she is as beautiful.

The A is for Athlete: What Athlete does your spouse most remind you of and why?

(F) WILLIAM PERRY aka The Fridge .. A BEAST Unstoppable.

(R) Peyton Manning because she’s a take charge quarter back of our home.

The L is for Lesson: What has your spouse taught you about yourself that no one else had the courage to tell you?

(F) To be conservative. Sometimes I have too much passion and can’t keep a balance.

(R) She taught me the importance of family and unconditional love.

The G is for Gift: What gift did your spouse give you that did not cost anything but means everything to you?

(F) His life, he made me his equal partner .

(R) Marrying me, she gave me the biggest gift I ever had that day .

The A is for Away: When your spouse is away what is it about them that makes you want to smile?

(R) When she says I want to come home

The D is for Direction: How does your spouse keep you on the right track?

(F) He ignores me when I babble.

(R) Ohhhh she does don’t worry. Ha. She never holds back, she’s always on top of everything, which I need sometimes. As they say behind every good man is a good women. Well that’s my wife.

The O is for Others: Why is it important to be in a relationship with someone that want to help give back to others?

(F) Because it stems from a child watching my own mother suffer cancer and being a single mom. I know the feeling of what a family struggles through to beat cancer.

DERRICK Interview with US NAVY Aircraft Handling Officer Charlie Ardinger

October 16, 2012

The #1 Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes gives a DERRICK Interview by asking 7 questions through each letter of his first name to give you an insightful perspective from other experts, entrepreneurs, celebrities and up and coming super stars.

Today’s DERRICK Interview is with Charlie Ardinger who has been in the Navy just over 28 years.  Charlie has been fortunate enough to have advanced through the enlisted ranks and achieved a commission through the Limited Duty Officer Program.  His current assignment is Aircraft Handling Officer (Handler) onboard the USS ENTERPRISE (CVN-65).  Officer Ardinger is married to Teresa Ardinger.

D is for DreamMy dream is for everyone to respect and get along with one another.  My goal is to bring happiness and unity with me everywhere I go.  I have achieved so much in my life but none of my success has been what I have done.  My parents, wife, family, friends and Shipmates are the reason I am where I am today and where I will go tomorrow.

E is for Encourage. Challenges encourage me.  I never take no for an answer.  If there is a will there is a way to get it done.  I like to make sure everyone gets what they need and everything gets accomplished.

R is for Resource. I am a very optimistic person that has been subject to a variety of environments and cultures which intrigues me.  I have met so many interesting people during my travels that I can relate to almost everyone and anything.

R is for Ready. My father is a retired Navy Chief so I grew up in the Navy but I didn’t realize that this was my calling until after 10 years or so of actually doing the job.  I really enjoyed what I was doing but wanted to achieve more so I could take better care of the people who supported me.

I is for Individual. My mother, Georginia Ardinger.  She is energetic and full of life.  She has worked very hard her entire life and has expected nothing in return.  She is the main reason I am where I am today.

C is for Continue. Failure is not in my vocabulary nor will I let it control me or anyone I know.   When things get hard then you need to try harder, knock on more doors and be there for those around you because people count on you and I don’t want to let them down.

K is for Key. The one thing I can say is when you look into the mirror and if you feel you have done all you could today and feel satisfied with what you have accomplished for the day then you are on the right track.

I am not perfect and I make mistakes but I try to fix those mistakes and move on to the next.  I don’t dwell in the past because of them but if I need to change something then I do it.  There is a bright future for everyone and if you think it will just fall into your lap then you are the lucky one I guess.  I have to strive for it and I encourage others to do the same.

Tell Me A Scripture

April 8, 2012

by Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes

There is nothing like an anniversary. My wife and I will be celebrating 5 years of marriage on April 12th, 2012. Life with her is fabulous and we have had some ups and downs. More ups. I remember when we were first dating like it was yesterday.

Me: Do you remember?

Kim: Yes I do

Me: What do you remember?

Kim: I remember when you use to open doors for me and pull out my chair before we eat.

Me: I remember something totally different. One day we were on the couch and I was trying to kiss you and you said

Kim: I want you like you want me but before we go there I need you to tell me something

Me: Tell you what? right now I’m willing to tell you whatever you want to hear

Kim: Tell Me (pause)

Me: Tell you what

Kim: A Scripture

Me: A scripture

Kim: Not just a scripture but if I was a scripture, what scripture would I be?

Me: Hmmm if you were a scripture you would be Song of Songs 4:7 Beautiful you are my darling, there is no flaw in you.

The next time you’re with someone and they want to go there, look them in the eyes and say “Tell Me A Scripture”

Stepping STONE: 5 Things That Can Help Build Relationships In Blended Families

March 24, 2012

by Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes

Marriage is fun but at times there can be difficulties. Being in a second marriage you learn quickly in counseling that 80% of those marriages fail and the main reason is because of the children.

As a father and husband I have helped raise someone else daughter and have been humbled because another man is helping raise mine. During a visit with my children I quickly realized they were treating their mother’s new husband the way I was being treated by my stepdaughter.

You can’t win every battle but you have to keep fighting for your family. Through the word STONE I present you with 5 Things That Can Help Build Relationships In Blended Families.

The S is for Speak. Speak to children positively when you have to give constructive criticism. A great that has worked for me is to bring in the biological parent when you have to address certain issues. Make sure both parents are on the same page.

The T is for Think. When you are out shopping or before you go see if they need anything. When you do nice things for someone they will do nice things for you. For example if you remember what type of cereal they like, it could result in you waking up to a breakfast of your dreams.

The O is for Open. Share your life when you can with your children. Explain how and why their life is different and not so different from the one you have. Youth feel at times that parents just don’t understand what it is like to be a child.

The N is for Notice. If you don’t know what your kids are good or great at ask them? Guide them according to their gifts. As parents many times we get it wrong by wanting to live through them. When you pay more attention you be the Mom or Dad that makes their honorable mention.

The E is for Ear. If you want them to listen you have to listen to them. Consider their feelings and ideas even when you know they are wrong. We all can be strong willed and off course at times in our life and they will to.

They Still Call Me Daddy

March 24, 2012

I was there at the start

Never thinking that we would part

I lost the words to the song

Where marriages can go wrong

One thing that sings so clear

Children have never asked to be here

Through life pleasures and pains

Our love for each other still remains

We don’t get to see each other as much

Weekends, special trips and calls keep us in touch

Real love will make you smile

Nothing like when a father loves his child

When I look back on the past

Certain people didn’t want us to last

There’s nothing they can do

When you love me and I love you.

Through it all “They Still Call Me Daddy”
