The Flo Expression with Marcus Johnson- What does it mean to be equally yoked!?



The Flo expression with Marcus Johnson It’s an outgrowth from Johnson’s radio show: Catch the FLO. The show is produced in association with the African American Public Radio Consortium and is distributed through National Public Radio ( NPR).  “People are just going through so much that the short FLO segment gives them something to hold on to. It’s a resource that is not only motivational and inspirational, but aspirational and affirmational. People just need to know that they’re on the right track and they’re not alone in failure and success. With social media and life after-COVID, we have become less connected than ever. We lack the skills to communicate effectively. And many of us have locked into adolescent patterns that don’t allow us to enjoy our daily life journeys. Each day is all we have! Why not live it in our FLO! It’s FLO with no W and it means for the love of. That’s for the love of life the love of So, and for the love of making our each of our day is just a little bit better!” The Flo expression is but one component and a much larger mission to become a part of the soul of the world!
