    can we mix going to and will in one sentence?

    "It sure is going to set a good example for your employees to follow and you will be more pleasant to work with." Possible?

    How about these?

    "We are moving to a new house not far from you. We are going to be seeing a lot each other and going to go back from school together."

    OR

    "They've reduced the price. I'm going to buy this book that will help me perform better during classes."

    Can we start with "going to" show the intention and then go on with "will" to deliver information?

    "I'm going to go to a super market and I will get pizza and some ready mixed salads. When I'm done buying stuff, I'll drive to a gas station to get my car my filled up"?
