A new genre - a new paradigm that allows you to inspire, transform and entertain at the same time.
What does innertaining mean to you?

“Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others,
cannot keep it from themselves.”
- Sir James M. Barrie
MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT THAT
INNERTAINS AND INSPIRES.
People emulate what they see in entertainment and media.
So if you could have an impact on our world and everyone in it,
wouldn't you change the factors that contribute to it?

GATE is a 501c3 charitable organization and community that recognizes the vital and expanding role media and entertainment play in creating our lives. We work towards having an impact on the key influencers in the industry to develop and distribute more positive, uplifting content.
"The media is one of the most important influences in our culture that affects how people think and feel. Both consciously and unconsciously, people emulate what they see in entertainment and media. Why not change the message so people can live vicariously through identifying with and emulating positive behaviors and experiences? We have an opportunity and a responsibility to build the world we envision through these mediums and with names that people will listen to. It is the most direct, powerful way to reach people, make a difference and create lasting change.” - Wendy Newman, M.A., Executive Director
(In this photo: just as Eckhart was about to go on stage, Jim whispered to him, "How about I go out as you and then you come out as me?" And there you have Jim as Eckhart and Eckhart as Jim! Transformational improv!)

Click on the dvd to receive the Gift of Peace - a multi-media book and a free screening of this powerful, life-changing short film.
Starring: Academy Award nominee James Cromwell
Written by: John Viscount
Produced by: Gavin J Behrman
Directed by: Harry Kakatsakis
Let's face it, entertainment and media are the way to reach the masses and have an impact. And once you reach them, you have to educate and take action to create sustainable change.
Admissions is an award winning short film that tells a transformational tale about what it takes to find lasting peace. Featuring an Israeli couple and a Palestinian, this modern parable is set in the admissions room for the afterlife. Its purpose is to start a conversation that heals.
We garnered exposure, e.g., 80 million households in the Middle East; we developed a multi-media book and gift of peace, a.k.a. a free screening of Admissions; and we tied in a campaign via the U.N. to get a billion signatures to enact The Global Resolution for the Establishment of Infrastructures to Support the Culture of Peace. Among other little things.
Sharon Stone loved Admissions so much she asked for a new piece on cyberbullying that she is set to star in.
SHARE YOUR IMPACT / INNERTAINING MEDIA • PEACE • CHANGE
Projects that give people a voice through the use of simple images, stories, videos and social media, to connect, share, and have an impact on one another and the world.
Peace Angel: The departed Rafael Bejarano
Team: Wendy Newman, Innertaining Media, Proctor Gallagher, & Peace Day 365 for The UN's International Day of Peace
Share Your Impact launched with the UN's International Day of Peace by utilizing a tragic situation and turning it into love and forgiveness. Within 48 hours, an 1100 person Facebook page reached more than 80,000 people through this one image. Social media engagement was 400 million, with awareness at more than 630 million.
Rafael Bejarano, the departed peace ambassador, was killed by Egyptian military in what is being described as an accidental shooting, mistaking the lunching tourists on a spiritual mission for a camp of Islamist militants operating in the area. The error killed more tourists than any terrorist attack in recent years. Rafael’s family asked that instead of focusing on the violence, focus on the possibility that love is a healing force. Rafael died suddenly and painlessly while dancing and celebrating life. He was committed to awakening the love in every heart he encountered; he would not want this event to generate hatred and violence.
Share Your Impact gives everyone a voice to connect, to heal, to transform, to inspire. Let's unite as humanity. #shareyourimpact today!

And if you do know, it's probably to innertain, make a difference, be happy and fulfilled, and even make some money while you're at it so you can make an even bigger difference. "Gotta do it all myself" were probably your first words, which you can't use anymore now that you've met us and realize you have a team surrounding you.

We're ready to innertain you, and the world is waiting for the Innertaining YOU . . . so . . . why make them wait? Jim's advice to you: "You can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love."
Chief Innertaining Officers
Our favorite things to do in the world besides laughing our makeup off together are to create inspirational content to transform the world and everyone in it, and to support YOU in being the best YOU, the happiest YOU, the most successful YOU! "Innertaining" was probably our first word, and we use it to describe anyone and everyone we can support – because what gets us out of bed in the morning are the people that make the world move and groove (that's YOU!), and we're on a mission to help you change the world and create a meaningful life! And let's face it, we have access to the best in the world to make this happen, and after all, isn't that what you deserve? The city girl and the beach girl come together to help you create an innertaining life - whatever that is for you! Our advice to you: "Laugh your makeup off even if you don't have any on!"
Chief Peace Officer
Snuffy's favorite thing to do in the whole world is to just be. Buddah was his stage name before he was rescued and "Zen" was probably his first word, and he uses it to describe anyone and everyone – because what gets his 100 pound body out of bed in the morning are the people that make his world peaceful, and he’s on a mission to help them pet him, love him and create a peaceful planet. Snuffleupagus also shares the title of Co-Unconditional Love Officer with his partner in crime, Cookie Monster. Snuffy's advice to you:
Chief Happiness Officer
Cookie's favorite thing to do in the whole world is to wag his tail. "Baci" (which means kisses), was one of his predecessors before he was rescued and that was probably his first word and he uses it to lure everyone in by kissing them – because what gets him out of bed in the morning are the people that make his world happy, and he’s on a mission to kiss them and spread love all over their faces. Cookie's advice to you: "Just Be Happy Every Second and Wag Your Tail." And in the words of John Viscount:
"Happy is Sexy!"

David Ventre's favorite thing to do in the world is to inspire people to live active and innertaining lives because moving your body and mind is non-negotiable! "Goal" was probably his first word because what gets him out of bed in the morning are the kids he can get movin' and groovin' to score on the soccer field and in life! David's philanthropic work includes running his organization, Speak with Your Feet, bringing sporting equipment around the world to kids who don't have access or the means to get it on their own. Playing soccer since the age of 5, David is an athlete, soccer coach and branding coach. David attended USM, the Worldwide Center for the Study and Practice of Spiritual Psychology, and incorporates these life-changing principles into his work on and off the field. When he's not supporting people like kids or pro athletes, David imagines a world where everyone is centered in themselves doing what they truly love, and is determined to change the world one person and one company at a time. David can often be found running the center of the soccer field or riding the motorcycle he built. David's advice to you: "Define your purpose, live the life of your dreams, and remember to stay centered (on or off the soccer field)!"
YOU'VE GOT NILLA!
Chief Momager Officer
Nilla Simpson's favorite thing to do in the world is to help people live mindful lives because consciousness is NOT overrated! “Meditation" was probably her first word because what gets her out of bed in the morning are our youth and she's on a mission to empower them and give them skills to self-sooth, self-modulate, self-empower and self-meditate! (Is there another way?) Nilla has spent the last 20 years working with children in the bodies of preschoolers, teenagers and adults, as a Mindfulness Meditation Facilitator specializing in youth. One of Nilla’s favorite jobs has been facilitating youth circles where tweens come together to express, feel, meditate and play. Her new favorite job besides being a mother to two awesome kids, is building the Breaking the Blues Foundation with Wendy and Casey! When she's not meditating, she can be found on TV and film sets daily with her son, Casey, playing the most loving, conscious Momager, and bringing peaceful energy to the entertainment biz. Nilla's advice to you: “The biggest gift we can give ourselves is to befriend ourselves. Supportive Self-Talk/Self-Compassion is the most powerful healing tool."
YOU'VE GOT WENDY!
