    Irma Vargas I was so excited to see this group. I am a long time writer and editor but have recently had the opportunity to host and produce an on-line TV Show by the name of "Be Brilliant - Enjoy the Journey on the RHG TV Network. It has been such a blessing to me and to my audience to share the trials, tribulation and triumphs of women and men who have a message of hope and brilliance. I would love it if you would listen in on some of the past shows that are both video and audio and comment what you think about the information. Our shows go live on Wednesdays at 10 a.m. PST Our next show is an interview with Alicia Cass, Founder of The Metamorphosis Experience and Author of Metamorphosis: The Butterfly Experience which gives readers a first hand account of second chances, redemption, forgiveness, the power of love and hope. We also have a FB page you can like/follow to get inspiration and updates on new shows.
