Danielle Rios brings Interior Design From the Runway to GBK Oscar Gift Suite

Danielle Rios brings Interior Design From the Runway to GBK Academy Awards Gifting Suite

DanielleRiosImageSm

Interior Designer Danielle Rios takes inspiration from Alexander McQueen, worn by Jessica Chastain and Nicole Kidman and Anne Hathaway’s Valentino for the design of GBK’s 2013 Oscar Luxury Lounge.

Going to the many gifting suites in Los Angeles you will find that many are held in the some of the hottest and best known hotels in Hollywood and Beverly Hills. GBK is no different, except that GBK always goes one step further and does a complete design concept for each event.

It is always exciting to walk in to see what wonderful design concept they have come up with for each event and this year for the Academy Awards I was lucky enough to find out who was designing.

The following was my conversation with Danielle Rios designer and Nadine Jolson part of GBK PR all about the show and the incredible designs based on exquisite gowns from Valentino and Alexander McQueen, for this year.JW

pic daneille rios design conceptsThe Design

From Runways to Red Carpets to Oscar Lounges, Rios will showcase fashion-influenced vignettes, styled with an elegant, edgy display of furnishings and decorative touches at the lounge for Nominees and Presenters.  The celebrity-gifting event will be held at the Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles on Friday February 21st and Saturday February 22nd from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“I believe that there is always the possibility for style and unexpected glamour,” says Rios, “I am thrilled and honored to be working with the leader in luxury gift lounges, GBK.” – Danielle Rios

Rios, a former Tadashi model, takes her experience from the runway to interior design for high-end residential, hospitality and commercial designs. By infusing her knowledge and expertise from both worlds, Rios established a unique trademark in creating fashionable interiors. The mixing of fashion sensibilities and interior design is a collective approach that she takes with every job.

“Time-honored style and fresh avant-garde elements create dynamic groupings and spaces,” Rios says.  A modernist at heart, Rios adds a traditional twist into her designs.

Contributing manufactures and contractors are: Elitis wall coverings and Bergamo and Rubelli fabric by Donghia Inc., Gaetano fabric by Elan Collections, Leather by Moore & Giles Inc., Nolita Sofa from the Magni Collection, Kailash Table by Chista, Grand Facet by Gary Hutton, Sophia Floor Lamp by Fuse Lighting, Reborn Antiques, Ryan Gallery, and John Jory LLC. s

Rios received her Bachelors of Science for Architectural Interior Design from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. She is a registered Interior Designer and Associate for AIA in the state of Nevada and has offices in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

Danielle Rios 02 shDanielle Rios

Danielle’s high expectations and personal drive have launched her into an exciting venture of design and construction development. Working on multi-million dollar estates, commercial properties and collaborating with Clientele has proven to be a successful endeavor. Since the commencement of her business, the focus has been on predominately high-end residential, hospitality and commercial design. This past year however, Danielle has expanded her creativity to antique furniture importation and renovation. Creating unique pieces into timeless furniture with an updated style and sense of elegance has expanded her savvy expertise in design.

Prior to Danielle creating her own business, her formative years were rooted in hospitality design. She worked and cultivated her skill for two leading design firms in Las Vegas for six years. Soon after, those connections led to a joint design venture that launched luxury international hospitality projects. It was during those formative years that she realized that her enthusiasm for design was geared around creating alluring, exciting spaces and adjusting with an ever-changing world.

Danielle Rios was born in Puerto Rico. She received her Bachelors of Science for Architectural Interior Design from the University of Nevada Las Vegas and is a registered Interior Designer in the state of Nevada. Danielle is currently operating out of Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

Starley Murray Image and Branding Strategist Goes Into Detail on How To Write Your Backstory or Point of View for OPM Author / Book Contest

Do you want to enter the competition and don’t know how to answer to contest questions? Starley goes into great detail to help you put together a winning entry.

On Purpose Magazine is known for helping authors promote themselves and since we love authors we want to do more.

OPM Founder JW Najarian and Image and Branding Strategist Starley Murray Audio How to Write Your Backstory ►Right Click and “Save Link As” to Download File◄

In the audio above famed image and branding strategist Starley Murray discusses with JW Najarian the tips, tricks and secrets of writing your Point of View (POV) or what is also referred to as the Backstory in your efforts toward winning the OPM Author / Book Competition and using it in your marketing and promotion yourself and your books.

Does Your Image Detract from Your Message? by Top Image Expert Starley MurrayStarley Murray

I choose Celebrity Image Expert Starley Murray to help us build our backstory or Point of View (POV) because Starley has been on TV every single month for the past ten years with nearly 3000 appearances overall.

Specializing in brand development, media training and publicity image she has been in demand with celebrities, Fortune 500 companies, industry experts, and TV stations for the last 20 years. Starley has generated more than $1 Million in sales directly from her TV appearances and media productions.

jw and starley 01She’s called upon by stars from Inside Edition and the E! Channel and many celebrities like Brooke Burke, Tommy Lee Jones, Marie Osmond, and Eva Longoria. Starley’s plugged in to internationally recognized media events like the Academy Awards and has interviewed hundreds of celebrities on the red carpet and leverages her appearances to support Cancer Survivors and Domestic Violence Prevention.

She is proud to be regularly requested for coaching behind the scenes at the American Idol try outs and all while on live television as a media correspondent for a FOX TV news show!

Writing Your Backstory or Point of View for the OPM Contest

The On Purpose Magazine (OPM) Author Book Competition is not based on your book, but rather on your story around the book. OPM wants to help authors promote their books and believe the first thing you need to have is a great package put together to help promote, market and sell you and your book.

OPM has put a contest together to find the most original, compelling and great backstory or author point of view which will be the basis of all your promotional and marketing efforts going forward.

Here are the questions you will be asked to answer for the competition and an explanation of how to answer them to help you build a winning entry.

Even if you do not enter the competition and you should… just check out the prizes; you will end up building a very strong foundation for the rest of your marketing and promotional campaigns going forward so have fun and get creative!

The following is an outline of the lesson on the audio. Use both guide you or not. There is no right way to answer these questions. I am sure many of you will answer from the heart and just blow us away and some of you will step out of the box, the box is in.

OPM Author / Book contest questions

Who Is The Author?

Give Us Your Story, Background, History or something interesting that might tie you to the book.

  1. Share your experiences about your back ground history (often called your back story) to give the reader a way to connect with you.
  2. Concentrate your story on an inspiring and/or exciting experience from your life.
  3. Don’t discount the power of others relating to you if the experience is common and not action packed. Common threads are strong connections.
  4. Develop your backstory and share your emotions to connect to your reader.
  5. Have a short one minute back story as well as a longer version such as a five minute presentation. Likely you will get the most mileage from your short sound bites for media related experiences and the longer versions when you have the opportunity to more deeply connect with your readers/audience.

 What Is This Book About?

What is the theme? Give us a short Description of the Book and the Story.

  1. Your theme or genre to your book is also a form of branding. You may have more than one applicable theme. If so, prioritize your themes and lead with the strongest.
  2. Develop your description of the book in ways to invoke the reader’s senses such as sight, sound, taste or touch. In video and television interviews, strong visuals are strong forms of publicity.
  3. Keep your description short in length of words and impactful in meaning of your words. In the media, the less you say …the more they will listen. It’s how you say it that can be most impactful.
  4. Be purposeful as to the order of words and sentences in your descriptions. The first impression rule still applies and you can set the tone and support the mood of the reader from beginning to end.

 Why Did You Write This Book?

What compelled you to write this book? Why you and not someone else?

  1. Combine your unique back story with your special interests and skills when sharing the reasons why you wrote your book. Having a unique fusion of inspiration with special skills makes your brand more difficult to copy by others competing for publicity.
  2. Differentiate your writing styles and share why your take on your top is unique.
  3. Reveal something about yourself that is specific only to you as an author or person.
  4. Share your reasons to write this book that may be different from what inspires other authors or readers of your topic.

 Why should someone read this book?

Why should someone read this book and who should read this book? Who will this book entertain, inspire, educate, and help?

  1. List all the reasons your book can help other people and make a difference.
  2. Categorize the reasons that can help readers immediately in their lives, and the ones that can help them long term as well as those reasons that just might make them smile or feel like they are a part of something special that is bigger than them as one person.
  3. Then pick the top three reasons from each of these three areas to support your reason why someone should read your book to answer the questions readers often ask themselves subconsciously. (What’s in it for me)
  4. Determine who your target market is and adjust your language and pinpoint your promotional campaign to reach the groups that have the highest interest in your book.

The Contest

Over 3 Million books come out every year and only a handful of them make any money or get any recognition. In fact 50% of all new books make less than $250 on average in their first year!

This is a startling and amazingly sad fact and it is not because the books are not worthy, solid, or wonderful, but because the marketing efforts behind the books are almost non existent or worse, a lot of money is spent in the wrong direction.

I have interviewed many bestselling and not best selling authors and I always get the same feedback. Marketing and promotions is the hardest part of writing a book.

What is one of the best ways to market and promote? Simple, let people get to know you. Exposure is not enough. You need the right type of exposure. This helps you build credibility and puts you on course to build a community which is one of the best ways to create buzz and sell more books.

On Purpose Magazine Wants To Help Authors Promote Their Books

On Purpose Magazine is doing something different and very special for the new and not so new author to help them get more of the right type of exposure.

We will not be reading your book! What?? How can you have a Author / Book Competition / Contest without reading the book? Again Simple…

If you write a great book, give it a fantastic title and put a great picture on the front… guess how many people will beat a path to your door to get this book? Generally no one. First people need to know that it is available, but more importantly people need a reason to pick it up to read.

What is the best way to promote my book?

Through my many interviews and working with authors and publicists and public relations executives I have learned that what an author needs beyond a great book, is a well defined, compelling, interesting or relate-able story.

The Author needs to get exposure from many different sources.

  • Radio (Internet, Satellite and Terrestrial)
  • Television (Internet, Local and National)
  • Newspaper
  • Magazines
  • Industry Publications
  • Other Publications
  • Associations
  • Groups
  • Word of Mouth
  • and Many Others

But are you ready for your close up? Do you know what you are going to say or how your going to say it?

Many of the 3 million authors will never get their work exposed and many others will get some type of exposure, but waste it by not knowing what to say and how to present themselves.

What an author needs is a package that is put together and tested. Starting with a headshot, bio and compelling book description. It will also be nice to have a professional interview with a professional publication, completed and on your resume.

This is what this contest will give the author. On Purpose Magazine’s contest is all about what we call the author’s Point of View (POV). The POV is the author’s backstory, reason for writing the book and reason why the reader absolutely needs to have this book or get it for a friend..

OPM’s contest will choose a winner based on the best POV submitted. The winner will receive one of our Gold Premium Promotional Package including a full page story with a full 30 minute professional interview that will be featured in OPM and shared out to thousands and thousands of readers, industry people and is, of course, yours to distribute as you see fit all your promotional needs. There will also be other bonuses from our industry sponsors.

button OPM Promotional Packages

So by the time you are done you will have:

  • A Headshot (you supply the headshot, but you have to have one for the interview and you can take it with your cell phone, but don’t screw yourself. Take a decent one.)
  • A Bio (You must supply this also, but if you complete the contest, believe me you will have a great one.)
  • A Point of View (The basis for all your marketing, promotion, interviews and more)
  • A professional interview published on a recognized web magazine.
  • One great resume entry

For new authors this will be you breaking the ice and getting more and more interviews or speaking engagements. For some of you seasoned authors this will be a chance for you to get more and better exposure and to dust off your old POV and create another, or it may be your chance to get noticed in the new social media.

We will be offering them on a first come, first served basis.

Devon Blaine Audio Interview on her life, career, PR, promotion, winning publicist of the year and crisis management ►Right Click and “Save Link As” to Download File◄

NOTE: There was one question, on the recording that was asked,but somehow did not get recorded. The question was about women having to work harder to build a business. Devon answered that she did not believe that to be true….. Listen to the audio to hear her full answer.

One of the things I like about what I do is meeting and working with public relations professionals. I have been blessed to work with some big names and many smaller companies.

The other side of that coin is that I have also worked with many companies that call themselves professionals, but only seem to be playing at it. Public relations, I have found, can rarely be faked. They say even a blind squirrel can occasionally find a nut or two, but I have rarely seen a bad PR firm pull off a successful event or project.

What I have seen is that promotion is a tricky game and that you can never be sure that any effort will deliver a result, but you can be assured that no action or a half hearted stab at it will result in failure .

So when I get to work with firms like The Blaine Group, it just makes my day and my life easier. They are professionals that do what they say and say what they do and they work at under-promising and over-delivering, not the other way around.

I believe I have been blessed to know and work with people like Devon and her amazing staff and believe that if you are serious about your product, project, service or business, that you should seriously consider The Blaine Group or a firm that can and will deliver. – JW

Juliet Wright – Everything is My Fault – A Journey Through Co-Dependency

Juliet Wright Everything is My FaultJuliet Wright Everything is My Fault – A Journey Through Co-Dependency

Juliet Wright is a speaker, author, musician, teacher and long sufferer of the pain of the disease of codependency.

Juliet’s journey with codependency began as a young child when addiction invaded her family. In this book, she observes her codependency as it weaves its way through her relationships and behavior patterns. Join us as she shares her story, as well as the program of recovery that is helping so many heal.

Disclaimer: Juliet and I have known each other for over 15 years. She came to my wedding. I have kept up with her over the years here and there, and I bust out her music from time to time, as besides, now being a new author, she has two music albums she produced. So I am biased because I love and care for Juliet.

On the other hand, I see a lot of books, as you might imagine and many are not good. This one is one of the good ones.

I met Juliet through my wife as they are good friends. My wife used to hang out with Juliet’s husband’s top 40 band and they were all very close, good friends. We still get together and watch some of the spin off bands occasionally.

Juliet and her husband lived in the Hollywood hills and had played just about every venue in Hollywood and southern California. They were busy and popular and striving hard to have success in the very tough, music industry that is Hollywood. They lived in a house that I was told was the practice pad for a band called Journey in the early days.

Juliet and her husband were well liked and a favorite couple amongst the group, but we did not know the turmoil that was happening with Juliet. A family history of mental and substance abuse was leading Juliet in directions, thoughts and patterns that were not good for her.

I heard about the book and I know Juliet as the creative type so I was not surprised that she wrote a book, but when I read the title, I got it right away. This is a great look into what causes codependency, enabling and how we sabotage ourselves as we look outside ourselves for answers that can only come from within us. I saw myself in this book many times.

Listen in to this interview where I get a chance to sit down with an old friend and dig into her healing, how her problems came about and how by using some proven techniques and C0-Dependents Anonymous (CoDa) her life was changed to one of gratitude and fulfillment. 

Juliet went on to get her Masters and is now a teacher. I am very happy for her and the new journey she is on and I know, KNOW this book will help many, many people get on the right path in their own lives – JW

Juliet A. Wright

Juliet is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, author, and teacher who was born and raised in Central Vermont.

Juliet spent much of her young life as an equestrian and was always active in music and theatre. She attended Interlochen Arts Academy from 1979-1982, where she studied piano, music composition, theatre, and dance.

Juliet graduated from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida, in 1986 with a degree in Studio Music and Jazz Guitar Performance.

After leaving Miami, Juliet moved to Burlington, Vermont, to pursue her career as a jazz guitarist. She moved to Los Angeles in 1987, where she pursued her career as a guitarist and performer of pop and rock music. For the next 13 years, she made her living singing, and playing the guitar, piano, and saxophone in clubs and at private functions all over California.

In 1997, a year after she was married to an old friend and fellow mucian, she began teaching general vocal music for the Los Angeles Unified School District. Juliet divorced in 2004 and moved back to Vermont, in 2007, where she currently lives.

Juliete writes books and composes and records her own music. She also teaches stringed instruments to elementary school students in a nearby Massachusetts school district. Her hobbies include writing and recording music, oil painting, knitting, and nurturing all the baby trees she has planted on her property.

Juliet is a devout Quaker and is active in her Quaker Meeting. Codependency recovery is very important to Juliet, and she donates much of her time giving back to CoDA.

book juliet wright everything is my faultEverything is my fault

One Woman’s Journey Through Codependency

Juliet Wright has spent her whole life living wth the disease of Codependency.

She has been actively working the Recovery Program which is documented in her first book Everything is My Fault. Seven years of work that has lead her to a much happier life.

This book is her fearless moral inventory, step 4 of the 12 step process, which she originally wrote as part of her journey to heal herself from debilitating and confining behaviors.

She then went through the 12 step program and along with her sponsor and therapist she developed processes and recovery tools using many proven techniques that changed her life.

This book is Juliet sharing her story, but more importantly, the sharing of the processes, tools, programs and techniques that helped her dig into her own past, see past the hurt, anger and fear and then take the steps toward recovery, gratitude, self awareness, self esteem and the inner tranquility that we all deserve. – JW

From Amazon

Through her personal journey, Juliet has illustrated in a most meaningful way, the pervasive nature of codependency, her healing through the 12 Step program of CoDa, and her implementation of those teachings into her life. This is a must read for anyone who has discovered how codependency has detrimentally affected their relationships and their lives. This book can serve as a guide for those seeking their own healing process with the wonderful result of discovering themselves in ways which could not have been imagined.

Caroll Fowler, M.A., MFT, previous Director of the Family Program at Sequoia Center and CoFounder of the drug/alcohol residential program in Kenya, ViFukoFuko Recovery Center.

I am so moved to be able to write a response to Juliet A. Wright’s searing self-help memoir, Everything is my Fault: One Woman’s Journey through Codependency. Reading her story, I found myself repeating, she has such courage and insight: this book represents an intimate act of healing for her and potentially, for so many other readers, including myself. Surely, this is a profound testament about how a former Miss Perfect (and a wonderful composer and singer and guitarist) has learned to love herself. Join Juliet in this profound inner journey of hope and healing.

Juliet Wright’s Music

Fearless Moral Inventory

This Album is a companion CD to my Book, “Everything Is My Fault.” The lyrics are sprinkled throughout the book. I wrote this music to help me heal. I hope that anyone who hears it will find comfort and healing. May it inspire the listener to write some songs of their own for their own recovery.

Juliet Wright BelovedBeloved

Juliet played professionally in Top 40 and casuals bands for several years before hitting the coffee house scene with her duo White River and their self titled cd. After the break up of her duo, Juliet ventured into the wonderful world of teaching.

She teaches music to elementary age students in the San Fernando Valley. Although she finds teaching very rewarding, her first love is writing and performing her own music. Her background is in jazz, but her love of rock, folk, pop and religious music has influenced her songwriting that has resulted in the creation, evolution and birth of her new cd Beloved.

Her poetic lyrics, beautiful melodies and tasty chord changes lead the listener through her most recent and very personal journeys, the destination being this intriguing, thought provoking music.

Duke Long on Using Social Media in Commercial Real Estate

Duke Long Commercial Real EstateDuke Long Commercial Real Estate Social Media Expert, Speaker, Broker and all around CRE activist

Takes some time to chat with us about the CRE industry and social media’s role now and in the future.

Duke Long Audio Interview Use of Social Media in the CRE Industry – To hear this interview [CLICK HERE]

I have been following Duke Long and his blog for a few years now. I was Googling Commercial Real Estate sites and found a list of the top 25 social media people in the industry.

I looked up and down the list and searched it for my name. I found my co-partner on my CREPIG site and many of my site members, but not my name.

I was disappointed and made a mental note to make sure that this Duke guy recognized me and put me on the list. Well the list was done so I put myself on it in the comments section.

Duke wrote back saying essentially cool man… No prob. I kept a keen eye on his lists since then and I have rarely made any of them.

Duke and I have spoken several times over the years and we finally got to meet each other and hang out at NAR together. We actually had a great time hanging out and got to talk at length about many subjects.

Duke is going where most other CRE professionals do not dare with social media and blogging and he does have an attitude, which he share via his blog…. Listen in as we take a moment to chat about the industry and new media challenges. – JW

book zero to zillionaire chellie campbellZero To Zillionaire

Zero to Zillionaire is a scale. We are all on that scale somewhere-some of us are drowning near Zero and some of us are riding the crest of the Zillionaire wave. Why is that?

Why do some people sink to the bottom of the ocean, some people float to the peak at the top, and the majority tread water in the middle? After accident of birth places a person somewhere on the scale, what is it that makes some stay where they were born, and others rise on the scale? Or fall off the scale? Why do a lot of wealthy people have no spirit and why are a lot of spiritual people are broke?

This book will help you understand your place on the scale and how to move up the food chain. You will learn how to implement the 8 successful steps:

  • Daily routines change your mindset and your future
  • Figure out what you really want
  • Take action-how to bring home the zillions
  • Surround yourself with people who make you rich and happy
  • Keep score in the money game
  • Your zillionaire time frame starts now
  • Make success out of failure
  • Lighten up-the whole idea is to have a great life!

You can qualify for Zillionaire status, with wealth in your work, happiness in your home, and a balance between the two. Follow these principles and you will have a balanced checkbook, a balanced schedule, a balanced spirit, and a balanced life.

You can be a Zillionaire: someone who has a zillion dreams, is taking a zillion actions to make them come true, makes as many zillions of dollars as possible, has a zillion friends, is doing a zillion good deeds, taking a zillion naps and a zillion vacations, and having a zillion adventures in a long, fun-filled life!

book the wealthy spirit chellie campbellThe Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction

Many people spend their lives searching for the means to acquire tremendous financial wealth. They look to external resources to give them what they want, and are ultimately disappointed when their dreams don’t turn out the way they had planned. They either become incredibly wealthy at the expense of their spiritual well being, family, and friends, or they never acquire the riches they’ve aspired to, and in their disappointment, they discover they’ve lost all sense of self-worth.

The Wealthy Spirit is the only book that offers an approach to achieving both spiritual and financial wealth. Through a series of daily affirmations that focus on the reader’s internal strength and capacity for change, this book will set them on a path toward personal enlightenment and wealth in body, mind, and spirit.

Using a day-to-day approach, readers will learn six keys:

  1. Think positive. Like mind over matter, mind over money begins with believing you deserve it and can get it.
  2. Send out ships. You can wait for your ship to come in, but if you don’t send any out, it’s going to be a long wait.
  3. Count your money. Money is a game and you have to know the score. The money score will tell you how well you’re doing at steps one and two.
  4. Swim with dolphins. Being “in the swim” will depend largely on who you’re swimming with. Find “your people” and avoid sharks.
  5. Survive the storms. You must weather interior storms as well as exterior ones. Persistence is key.
  6. Seek balance and enlightenment. Only from their perspective will you know when you have “enough.”

The Wealthy Spirit offers readers peace of mind to help them build financial muscle and a successful, stress-free life.

Ray Carter CEO of StemTech on Their Success with Direct Sales

Ray C. Carter Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of StemTech International

Talks to us about their breakthrough product that increases your bodies natural release of the repairative adult stem cells and the business model they have chosen to allow everyone to share the product and financial rewards.

Ray Carter Audio Interview on Stem Cell Breakthrough and How they are using Direct Sales to Share and Promote their products ►Right Click and “Save Link As” to Download File◄

I am very lucky and grateful for the things I get to do. Interviewing celebrities, authors, thought leaders and professionals about all kinds of interesting subjects.

One of my favorite things is stuff. I love cool stuff and I started an Innovative Products page to highlight some of the great products I come across.

I see many types of products through traditional means of distribution and also direct sales channels of distribution. If I love a product I do not care how it is distributed, I just want to know how I can get it.

I have had some success at network marketing in the past and I happen to really love and embrace that channel of distribution. Given the right management, a solid compensation plan for distributors and a really great product and you have a solid way for manufacturers to get their product out into the market place with the best advertising available “Word of Mouth”.

It is also great for the client as they get to deal with real people not corporations when it comes to getting service also a client can, by sharing the product, they love, make some money.

There is also the opportunity to leverage others that want to build a business in order to make even more money and possible residual cashflow.

blah, blah, blah… I know many of you have heard this before and will take me to task about ponzi schemes. You will argue that only those at the top make money. I get it and you will find that ponsi schemes do exist and in a ponsi scheme scenario you would be right about the people at the top, but they are illegal.

There are thousands of legitimate network marketing companies and you can usually check them out by making sure they are members of groups like the Direct Selling Association (DSA) as these companies have proved their legitimacy.

OK so all that said, I wanted to introduce everyone to a product, I believe is incredibly innovative and, more importantly, relevant to everyone who cares about their health and quality of life.

StemTech makes a a product that has been proven, through studies, to support and increase naturally, the number of adult stem cells your body produces. I will not go into the science here, but if you know anything about stem cell research, you will know that stem cells have become one of the most significant and revolutionary health breakthrough technologies today and in the future.

Click here to listen to the Christian Drapeau the Chief Science Officer and Co-Founder, as he speaks to the incredible science behind this product and listen to the audio above to find out more about the history and business side of this story.

This story will probably change your life or the life of someone you love in more that one way. It can be your ticket to good health and to financial freedom.JW

StemTech

The Stem Cell Nutrition Company® are pioneers in stem cell science, who have demonstrated that adult stem cells function as the natural renewal system of the body. Their products enhance and support the work of the body’s stem cells by releasing more stem cells, helping to circulate them in the blood and migrate them into tissues, where they can perform their daily function of renewal for optimal health.

Stemtech Scientific research is a cornerstone to the success of the Stemtech product line. Very few nutritional supplement companies invest the significant time and money it takes to prove the efficacy of their products. Some companies even try to point at our research and claim it as their own. Stemtech does research specifically on our own products, and publishes the results of that research in leading scientific journals.

Want More Product Information? [CLICK HERE]

Our one-of-a-kind stem cell nutrition products have been designed to support your body’s adult stem cell physiology, providing you with an unmatched level of wellness, both inside and out.*

Many people do not realize that adult stem cells play a key role in the natural renewal of your body and are essential for the maintenance and repair of organs and tissue throughout your lifetime.

Due to factors such as age, stress, pollution and poor diet, there is a reduction in the release and activity of adult stem cells, which may lead to a decline in the natural ability of your body to maintain optimal health. Stemtech’s clinically studied stem cell nutrition line of products is designed to help support three most important aspects of stem cell physiology: the release, circulation and migrations of stem cells.

Stemtech’s products do not contain stem cells. They are composed of natural botanicals and other ingredients that have been clinically documented to support the performance of your own stem cells.

Stemtech’s line of adult stem cell nutrition products for humans includes SE2®, StemFlo®, StemSport®, ST-5 with MigraStem and DermaStem®. These products are designed synergistically, to provide you with the maximum results when taken together throughout your day. Don’t be fooled by imitators, Stemtech pioneered this exciting new supplement category, and is the only company with a full line of products that are clinically shown to support the body’s natural renewal system.

For animals, Stemtech has created StemPets® and StemEquine®. These products are created with the same high-quality standards as our products for humans.

Christian Drapeau Increasing Your Bodies Natural Release of Adult Stem Cells

Christian Drapeau Author of “Cracking the Stem Cell Code” and Chief Science Officer for StemTech International

Talks to us about their breakthrough product that increases your bodies natural release of the reparative adult stem cells.

OMG not another health breakthrough! I avoid these things as I get so many request for me to try someones product so I can help promote them.

OK so I show up at the W Hotel, in Hollywood and while sitting down and checking my emails in the lobby, an old friend Lisa Hill walks up and gives me a big hug and says she is glad to see me there. I was glad to see her also as between celebrity interviews Lisa and I have hung out and she is wonderful.

She asked me to stop by and check out their booth at the Emmy event and of course I did. Only to see a health product… Oh noooo.

Then I found out what it was. A nutritional product that naturally makes the body increase its creation of natural adult stem cells. OMG I was just reading on the astounding health breakthroughs were happening and will be happening in the future based on stem cell treatments. 

I was hooked and wanted to know more. They said there were studies. Not about stem cells… We know they work. The studies were about product. OK I love studies… Not to hep on testimonials. Anyway I had the Christian Drapeau call me at home to talk about the real science and studies. I didn’t want to report on another product that did not have proof that it worked.

I was astounded by the thought that I could increase the amount of stems cells in my body, for a fraction of the cost of injections, and that by taking this supplement every day, I could keep large amounts of stem cells in my body for much longer periods than the expensive injection.

I am trying out the SE2 product and DermaStem right now. I am not one to look for a product experience. If your diet sucks and you start taking supplements that give you nutrients you are not getting via the typical burger and fries than you will probably feel better and there is always the placebo effect. I do have to say I do feel better just knowing that I am allowing my body to do a better job at naturally healing itself.

I spend almost an hour on the phone with Christian and if you listen to this interview you will see why. This might be the most important breakthrough in personal health since we discovered antioxidants… I would actually dare to say that this would be more important

If you know anyone suffering health issues or you are yourself, you need to listen to this interview. Remember that your future health concerns are based on things you are doing right now. – JW

The Stem Cell Theory of Renewal

Demystifying the Most Dramatic Scientific Breakthrough of Our Time

Are the functions of Adult Stem Cells really the most dramatic scientific breakthrough of our times?

Visionary Stem Cell Scientist and Stem Cell Nutrition expert Christian Drapeau says “Absolutely Yes” as he explains the science and implications behind the body’s natural renewal system.

Adult Stem Cells in your bone marrow constitute the natural healing system of your body. Wherever there is an injury or damage to any organ, stem cells are released from the bone marrow. They migrate to that organ and become healthy cells of that organ, literally repairing the damaged tissue.

The implications of new developments in Adult Stem Cell science for health and wellness are mind boggling.

Kaya Redford Using NLP and Timeline Therapy to Change Your Life

Kaya Redford NLP Expert Talks About Using NLP and Timeline Therapy to Drastically Change Your Life.

Kaya Redford has spent his life studying NLP from the Masters and he shares what he has learned with thousands to help them get rid of fear, anger, anxiety, self sabotage and all the emotions that hold you back from having a fully realized and happy life.

I first met Kaya about four or five years ago at an event he produced with Bob Proctor, to help people learn about the concepts of Napoleon Hill’s great book “Think and Grow Rich”.

I was invited to some of his classes to sit in and check them out and I was impressed with the depth of his teaching. He brought his classes through line after line of the book, not stopping till the class thoroughly understood what was being said and how it related to each of them in their own journeys to build a full, successful and better life.

Later on I heard Kaya, who had learned from the top NLP Masters, was teaching a course in NLP and how to use the science to help them in sales, business and again, in fulfilling their greatest potential.

I asked Kaya to let me into the class, which he always keeps small so he can give individual attention. He welcomed me in as that is the kind of person Kaya is. The class was, once again, amazingly full of great information and tools that he had everyone work out in class. Kaya never just speaks, he gets his classes fully involved. I learned a lot that day about the good of NLP as I was one of those that only thought that NLP was used to convince people to buy stuff they really didn’t want.

I have wanted to get Kaya to do an interview with me for the longest time, but we have never been able to get the two of us in sync with schedules so I am so happy that we finally got him to give us some of his very precious time.

The call quality is not what I would have liked, but I did not want to reschedule this one because I believe what Kaya has to say will help a lot of people.

Kaya thanks for your time and the wisdom you shared that made this a great call.  – JW

Neuro linguistic Programming (NLP)

From Wikipedia

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created in the 1970s. The title refers to a stated connection between the neurological processes (“neuro”), language (“linguistic”), and behavioral patterns that have been learned through experience (“programming”) and can be organized to achieve specific goals in life.[1][2]

The founders of NLP, Richard Bandler and John Grinder, say that NLP is capable of addressing problems such as phobias, depression, habit disorder, psychosomatic illnesses, and learning disorders.[citation needed] Their stated aim was in “finding ways to help people have better, fuller and richer lives.”[8][9] Bandler and Grinder claimed that if the effective patterns of behaviour of exceptional people could be modeled then these patterns could be acquired by others. NLP has been adopted by private therapists, including hypnotherapists, and in management workshops and seminars marketed to business and government.[10][11]

From Kaya’s Site:

WHAT EXACTLY IS N.L.P.? (Neuro Linguistic Programming) A way of thinking and a set of skills that’s easy to understand, which gives you more focus, self confidence, power to make good decisions, directions, ability to create wealth, productivity, less procrastination, faster progress and success in any area of your life.

It has been studied and used by the world’s top leaders including Former Presidents: Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, President Barack Obama as well as Real Estate & Business Tycoons: Donald Trump, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey and Richard Branson. Fortune 500 Companies: Bank of America, New York Life, Century 21, Keller Williams, ACN, Xerox, British Telecom (HDI-IT) as well as many private firms and law firms have received our Quantum Leap NOW N.L.P. Trainings and have achieved outstanding success as a result. It is a very powerful tool to create change in others whether in business, professional sports, as a parent or as a coach.

Timeline Therapy

I know nothing about Timeline Therapy, but I do know the power of the reactive mind and if Timeline Therapy techniques can help change the reactive mind, then I am interested. – JW

From About.com

The therapeutic process called Time Line Therapy is a methodology in which a series of techniques are used to bring about changes on an unconscious level and alter behavior. The intention of this therapy is to help individuals refrain from being reactive to present situations based on past experiences. Time Line Therapy is a reprogramming process that releases the effects of negative experiences and helps a person let go of past influences.

From Kaya’s Site:

Time Line Therapy allows you to go back to the “root” cause of a problem and heal an issue which is blocking you. Imagine for a moment that you had inside you a time machine that allows you to go backg, revisit & heal stuff from the past. When you heal the past through Time Line Therapy, you release all anger, sadness, fear, hurt, guilt, shame, resentment, jealousy, rage, irritation and any other negative emotions. All the while, you clear a path to go forward in your timeline & set goals that you’ll achieve in your future.

Also releasing issues from the past with Time Line Therapy allows you to change your limiting beliefs in the present moment to empowering ones that launch you to QUANTUM LEAP NOW IN YOUR SUCCESS! GREAT NEWS!!

The Prince of Wales, The English Royal Family and England is endorsing Neuro Linguistic Programing (NLP) & Time Line Therapy (the same techniques I use & teach) as the methods to heal soldiers returning from Afghanistan in emotional pain including including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Take a moment to read the link below, the UK is using the techniques that is Kaya’s expertise, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) & Time Line Therapy®.

As you know or perhaps did not know, Kaya was trained by the founders of N.L.P. & Time Line Therapy® and is continuously updated on new techniques by them, personally. Here is the article link: http://www.warriorprogramme.org.uk/files/newsletter_02-10.pdf “The 10th February 2010 was a historic day for The Warrior Programme as it played host to His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales. The Warrior Programme is a three day programme with ongoing monthly support meetings which addresses unresolved emotional pain such as anger, sadness, fear,hurt and guilt.The Programme uses well known therapeutic techniques including Neuro Linguistic Programming(NLP), Time Line Therapy® and Huna.”

Personal Note from the interviewer:

There are many who challenge NLP as pseudoscience and I would not argue with many of the findings of the studies which have been done, but I always believe the often there is no black and white. The truth is often somewhere in the middle.

What I do know is that the masters of marketing are using and have used NLP for many years. I have been to many many conferences with some of the greatest speakers and sales people in the world and they care about the numbers they sell to. They are continually testing techniques to sell more or to build better rapport with their audiences and they throw out what does not work, but these speakers and marketers continually use NLP concepts and techniques over and over again so, to me, this points to the probability that there are NLP techniques that work and can be very powerful.

There is no mysticism about NLP and not all the techniques will work with everyone in every situation. It is a tool that systematizes our responses in order to better communicate to your audience, clients or relationships.

I am no expert so that is my opinion. I have used a few NLP techniques to help clients get to a comfort level with me very quickly. I use mirroring and have found that it works extremely well. I have also used the anchoring technique and found that it worked, but I do not use it as it is not a technique that feels natural to me though I know many that love that technique.

Kaya’s NLP course went so much farther into how people react to different situations and how you can use these reactions to open up communications to their fullest potential.

With all things, check out the facts, not the hype and try things for yourself. Do not let the noise of other’s opinions drown out who you are. Remember it isn’t alsways about what we know or about what we do not know, but more about what we do not know that we do not know. – JW

Randy Gage – Risky is the New Safe – Book Release

Randy Gage,  the Millionaire Messiah, Releases His Ninth Book and Most Controversial Ever!

Randy Gage - Risky is the New Safe 3d

Randy’s Rants, His Blog, his speaches… Randy does not shy away from controversial conversations about religion, politics or especially about prosperity as Randy feels it is a sin to be Poor. His 9th Book Risky is the New Safe is his boldest yet and will surely be a classic for a new age.

I have been following Randy for many years, since I first heard him speak to around a thousand people at a conference. He is a great speaker, funny, inspiring, smart and wise.

I especially love his no fear, straight talk, sense of humor and his lessons in how to build sales, teams, community….. and about what it takes to have a successful and prosperous life.

I am elated to have been chosen by Randy to be one of a small few that got a chance to receive a gallery copy (pre-release copy) of his new book which is not being released till October 30th. This book is really what we need right now. I cannot say I agree with it all, but I am a Randy Gage believer and this book did not change my mind. It actually helped me clarify a few things I need to do and it put a real fire under my ass to do some things I was not doing.

The book, “Risky is the New Safe”, is the Randy Gage I so loved so much from his book “Why You’re Dumb Sick and Broke and How to Get Smart Healthy and Rich”.  The advance buzz on this book is ridiculous and amazingly huge. I believe this is a book you will be buying for your friends and family.

Many may describe this book as irreverent and very way out there,  and it is meant to be. Not for shock value, but because Randy believes the playing field has changed so much that we need to get real and be able to change our “out of date” thinking now or possibly peril. 

We have seen technology change things for the better and the worse in a very short time and Randy believes that, not only do we need to embrace the change, but we have to get extremely creative and change our way of thinking and looking at the world, if we want to be successful in it.

This book will be called many things. A game changer, a look at the future or even crazy talk, but whatever you believe you will be changed by this book as once a mind is stretched, it is hard to put back.

One thing I know for sure is that Randy Gage doesn’t say things he does not mean and he explains in great detail why he believes what he is predicting and what you need to do to take advantage of the incredible changes yet to come.

Get ready to Zig while others continue to Zag.

I can only imagine Randy’s schedule for this book release, so I so thank him for giving me some of his personal time to give me this interview. Randy tells it like it is, in his new book and in this interview. Thank You Randy – JW

Randy Gage - Risky is the New Safe 3dRisky is the New Safe

Is…. Brash, Controversial, Thought-Provoking

This is a different kind of book for a different kind of thinking.  It’s a thought-provoking manifesto for risk takers.  Disruptive technology, accelerating speed of change and economic upheaval are changing the game.  The same tired, old conventional thinking won’t get you to success today.

Risky Is the New Safe will change the way you look at everything!  You’ll view challenges – and the corresponding opportunities they provide – in entirely new and exciting ways.  You’ll recognize powerful new gateways you can walk through to create wealth.

In this mind-bending book you’ll discover:

  • How mavericks like Steve Jobs, Richard Branson and Mark Cuban, think differently – and what you can learn from them;
  • The six-month online course that could allow you to earn more than a Ph.D.;
  • How social media changes branding and marketing forever, and what that means for you;
  • What happens when holo-suites and virtual-reality sex come about, and how you need to prepare;
  • The New Religion of Ideas:  How to become an “idea generator” and declare as a free agent; and,
  • What will cause the Euro, precious metals, and oceanfront real estate to collapse – and how that can make you rich!

I’ll warn you up front, the book will be controversial to some.  Randy attacks anything that holds you back from success, including government propaganda, conventional wisdom, and other limiting beliefs.  He didn’t write Risky Is the New Safe to tell you what to think.  He wrote it to cause you to think.

I don’t expect you to agree with everything you read in there – and would be surprised if you did. It’s for people who love intellectual discourse, challenging ideas, opposing viewpoints and honest and respectful discussion of the issues surrounding what it takes to be successful today.

Twisted Sister’s Jay Jay French on Rocked The Extreme Leadership Summit with Twisted Business

John Jay Jay French is the Founder, Guitarist and Manager of Twisted Sister. Known for his savvy business and entrepreneurial skills and his philanthropic spirit, Jay Jay talks about learning the business of music and how its not that different than your business and about……

This Video shows how John Jay Jay French Rocked it in San Diego at Bestselling Author Steve Farber’s Extreme Leadership Summit where he spoke in August.

Our Audio Interview with Jay Jay French in New York as he Talks About The Music Business and The Extreme Leadership Summit ►Right Click and “Save Link As” to Download File◄

The Video Interview

The audio Interview was done before Jay Jay’s talk from his office in New York. The video was taken at the conference after he had spoken to an excited group of entrepreneurs and business people.

I went to Steve Farber’s first ever Extreme Leaership Summit and now that it is over I can tell you it was a major success. NO Pitchfest, pure training, learning, networking and awesome entertainment. The message was important and Steve used his famous L.E.A.P. system to guide and help make the summit a wonderful experience. It was filled with speakers that taught Love of your business, client, worker and your product or service. It had speakers like Jay Jay French from Twisted Sister that were incredibly Energetic and Audacious and speakers like Simon Billsberry to give Proof of concept and implementation.

It was hard to get Jay Jay away from the throng of people that wanted his attention, but he stayed for the whole three days and made himself extremely available to the attendees. I grabbed him while he was signing autographs and got into the nitty gritty with him about his first talk on stage and about the music business and how what he learned creating one of the most successful bands in the history of rock, can help you and your business.

I loved Steve’s book so I knew the summit would be good, but I did not expect great and I got great. One night Steve and Jay Jay set it up so that Guitar Center and Epiphone Guitar supplied us with masses of instruments and a drum kit and we all got to go and play up on stage with Jay Jay. What a super honor. I played bass behind a couple of tunes… very cool. – JW

The Audio Interview

This was written before the summit.

After speaking to Steve Farber, recently about his first ever Extreme Leadership Summit, I could see that this was going to be one of those life changing experiences that we just do not find in most conferences and summits nowadays.

Steve is cool enough, but he also offered to allow his speakers to interview with me before the event….  Great for me because, although I don’t do commercials or infomercials for people, I do love to create and share excellent and valuable content for you, and Steve and the speakers promised they would tell some cool stories and give me some great content and value to pass on to you. (And They Have!.. )

It is also great for Steve so that he can get the word out on this unbelievable summit. Steve has put together an Extreme Training Intensive… This is not another one of those sellathon weekends where speakers pitch you to buy at the back of the room…

Steve has brought his closest friends that have excelled in Extreme Leadership and he brings them to you so that you can learn what you need to know to accelerate your business and your life to never before foreseen heights.

I heard that Jay Jay and Steve had met at Liz Strauss’ SOBCon Event and was happy to hear that Jay Jay would be speaking at Steve’s Extreme Leadership Summit.

As a musician myself and a guitar player at that, it was sure exciting to get to speak with Jay Jay French the guitarist for the legendary Twisted Sister.

Jay Jay tells a great story and is quite candid and I found that there was really no question he was not willing to answer.

The big thing we discussed was how similar the music business is to other industries and how it takes the same qualities and systems and steps to place preparation into the path of opportunity.

Jay Jay, is a rock star that plays guitar in front of 70 to 80 thousand screaming fans at huge arenas and stadiums, but as the founder and also the manager of the band and others, Jay Jay is also a very savvy businessman, an entrepreneur and someone that has paid some dues.

Never thought I would say that some of the smartest business information I got came from a rock guitarist from a band with a name like Twisted Sister.

I want to thank Jay Jay for his time, for being a great guest and for spending some substantial time with me right after getting off his European Tour… Thanks Jay Jay. – JW

Jay Jay French

Jay Jay French is a human enigma. His playing has inspired countless guitarists all over the world, and 30+ years after founding Twisted Sister, he is truly a living legend.

As a manager, he has worked with such diverse artists as Sevendust, songwriters Andrew Fortier and David Forman, blues guitar legend Johnny Gale, jam band heroes The Sound Of Urchin, underground new york legends The Step Kings, and Fred Sargolini–the “FS” of the world-famous new york DJ duo, Ming & FS.

In his combined roles as a guitarist, manager, and producer, Jay Jay has been responsible for the sale of over 12 million records worldwide and has 39 gold and platinum albums from 8 different countries.

Jay Jay has been in the rock’n’roll circus for three decades, and knows both sides of the stage and the microphone; yet, he keeps away from the gossip headlines and glamour nonsense that the industry is so infected with. He’s a New Yorker, but more so an international player that impresses on all levels. He’s tough when he’s on a mission, but his dedication, knowledge and trust is unheard of.  Jay Jay is the real deal – both as a musician, producer and manager, and he’s known by many as one of the most genuine people working in the music industry today.

“At the end of the day, Rock and roll is a business with universal business rules. You need to posses the ability to look inside yourself, be honest with what you see, re-invent, and then re-apply. And be fully prepared to be knocked down again.”

PinkBurst Project

Jay Jay French’s Pinkburst Project Donates Over $110,000 to The Ocular Immunology and Uveitis Foundation

A total of $110,000 is being donated to The Ocular Immunology and Uveitis Foundation for ongoing research, education and support for those affected by Uveitis and other inflammatory eye diseases.

All custom guitars and amps in The Pinkburst Project collection were auctioned for sale during the Skinner Fine Musical Instruments on Sunday, May 1, 2011 in Boston, Massachusetts.

A benefit concert, “The Pinkburst Project: An Evening with Twisted Sister benefiting the Ocular Immunology and Uveitis Foundation” took place on Friday, April 29 at the Best Buy Theater in Times Square. Special guests included New York Yankee-great, Bernie Williams.

“When I embarked on the Pinkburst Project three and one-half years ago on behalf of my daughter Samantha and her struggle with her Uveitis, I did it at first to raise much needed money for research and a cure. I didn’t realize where that journey would take me.” stated French.

He continued, “The money raised of course is much needed but the media exposure and the realization that getting out the story could actually save people’s sight was something that I didn’t think about. Now I have come to realize that the combination of hard work, focus and the incredible help from so many people have created a social network of families who are fighting this disease and no longer feel like nobody in the world cares. People DO care.

The brotherhood of man has once again reached out to those in need and now the Pinkburst Project has given renewed hope to those afflicted that someday a cure may be found.”

“In spite of the fact that uveitis blinds thousands of patients every year, it remains “under the radar”, unknown by most and underappreciated even by many ophthalmologists as a cause of continuing misery and blindness. Raising awareness of this preventable tragedy among the public and educating eye doctors on the latest techniques proven to prevent blindness from uveitis is at the heart of the mission of the Ocular Immunology and Uveitis Foundation. The passion of Jay Jay French and of Twisted Sister in helping the Foundation in this matter is stunning, and our gratitude to them for this cannot be overstated.” Says. C. Stephen Foster, MD, President and Founder of the Ocular Immunology Uveitis Foundation.

What is Extreme Leadership?

If you haven’t already noticed, ‘Leadership’ has become just another one of those pseudo-pop-psycho-cultural buzzwords.

Over time, its meaning has been diluted to such a profound degree, that it’s just another one of those labels we use when we really mean ‘The one with the big office.’ 

True leadership doesn’t come from a snappy vocabulary, the books you have on your shelf, your place on the organization chart, or any other fabrication.

Leadership is intensely personal, intrinsically scary, and it requires us to live up to and beyond the point of fear—every single day. – Steve Farber

Extreme Leadership Summit 2012

Steve and his team have crafted The Extreme Leadership Summit to be something unique, something special, something…well…extreme. And it’s unlike any leadership or personal development “event” you’ve been to before.

The Summit is not a pitch fest (where a bunch of speakers try to sell you stuff), and it’s not a parade of talking heads, to mix a metaphor, where you passively sit, watch the show, take notes, and go home.

This is an experience, a process.

Informed by our brilliant thought-leader-speaker-coaches and with the help of your fellow participants (in small, focused MasterMind Teams), you’ll build a significant, personal Extreme Leadership Action Plan–a plan that you’ll begin applying to your life and business immediately, before The Summit even ends.

And–unlike other events–the vast majority of our speakers will be attending the entire conference. With you. We’re all in this thing together.

book greater than yourself steve farber

Greater Than Yourself

Too many people assume the timeless principles of true leadership—of helping others achieve their full potential—don’t apply Monday through Friday during work hours or in any circumstance where a paycheck is involved.

In GREATER THAN YOURSELF, Steve Farber proves them wrong: in this powerful and inspiring story, Farber shows that the goal of a genuine leader is to help others—teammates, employees, and colleagues—become more capable, confident, and accomplished than they are themselves. Through the actions of a forward-thinking and extraordinarily successful CEO, Farber reveals the three keys to achieving this: Expand Yourself, Give Yourself, and Replicate Yourself.

Filled with actionable principles and innovative ideas, GREATER THAN YOURSELF is perhaps the most powerful message today’s business leaders can learn.

Extreme Leadership Summit 2012

August 17th – 19th
San Diego, California

Brian Mayne on Goal Mapping and Extreme Leadership

Inspirational Speaker, Author and creator of the world-leading achievement system Goal Mapping, Talks To Us About His System Born From His Incredible Life Story, his Books and….

About Bestselling Author Steve Farber’s Extreme Leadership Summit where he will be speaking in August 17th – 19th in San Diego, CA

Steve Farber is such a cool guy. I often report on conferences that….

Register for Extreme Leadership Summit

I think are exciting or that I really got a lot out of or just really think you should know about.

After speaking to Steve recently about his first ever Extreme Leadership Summit, I could see that this was going to be one of those life changing experiences that we just do not find in most conferences and summits nowadays.

Steve is cool enough, but he also offered to allow his speakers to interview with me before the event….  Great for me because, although I don’t do commercials or infomercials for people, I do love to create and share excellent and valuable content for you, and Steve and the speakers promised they would tell some cool stories and give me some great content and value to pass on to you. (And They Have!.. )

It is also great for Steve so that he can get the word out on this unbelievable summit. Steve has put together an Extreme Training Intensive… This is not another one of those sellathon weekends where speakers pitch you to buy at the back of the room…

Steve has brought his closest friends that have excelled in Extreme Leadership and he brings them to you so that you can learn what you need to know to accelerate your business and your life to never before foreseen heights.

I have to admit I had never heard of Brian Mayne until he was mentioned to me by Steve Farber, but what a treat he is.

I sat on the phone listening to Brian tell me about his past as a literal gypsy who did not learn to read or write till age 30! Then he wrote four, count them, four, very well received books. Amazing!

But what is more amazing is this formally illiterate gypsy devises a system of goal setting and achievement that rivals any system I have seen by far, and I have seen a few.

Brian realized that many of us get all the information we need to be successful, but some of us implement and others don’t. Brian incorporates all the sciences of the left and right brain in an easy to follow and understand program that allows you fully integrate, and if you choose, to apply his teachings into your life which will propel your success into the next dimension.

I was impressed at how simple, yet comprehensive Brian’s Goal Mapping program is.

I want to thank Steve for the connection to Brian, this was an eye opening interview that really gets me excited about going and meeting Brian and learning from him at the Extreme Leadership Summit. Also thank you to Brian for the time he allowed me and for how open and authentic he was in this interview. – JW

Brian Mayne

An inspirational speaker, author and teacher, Brian Mayne, creator of the world-leading achievement system Goal Mapping, shares eternal truths on success with simple language and from his own powerful life experience.

Born into a traveling fun-fair family with a nomadic childhood, Brian left school early with no qualifications and a poor education. When the family business failed in the UK recession of the late 1980s, he lost what seemed like everything–his income, his home and his marriage. He was 29 years old, a million pounds in debt, and still relatively unable to read or write.

Brian worked hard to teach himself how to read and write and started on a path to find discover how to be successful in order to get himself out of his great debt and get off the dark path he was on. After learning how to read, Brian read everything he could get his hands on, his favorite being personal development. One day Brian had an epiphany about how to map out his goals using words and pictures and he developed a seven step process he called Goal Mapping that allowed him to get himself out of debt, write four books and create a successful business showing others the programs that changed his life.

His core message of personal leadership through the practice of self response-ability and purpose led motivation have proven as effective and popular with the corporate world as it has with educationalists and the crowds who come to experience his public presentations.

As chairman of Lift International Brian is now actively involved in the process of developing and delivering the very finest empowerment material available. His seminars and workshops, like his acclaimed books Sam the Magic Genie and Goal Mapping are both clear in their message and practical in their application. Directed by a principle-centred philosophy, and clothed in the language of success psychology, Brian empowers his audiences with the very latest ‘human development’ technologies.

Amongst his many systems for success, Goal Mapping and Life Mapping have enabled him to help people create and steer change within their lives, winning him the gratitude of his audiences, and a place on the world stage of public speaking.

“One of mankind’s greatest fears is that of uncertain change. In reality, the only future thing, of which we can be absolutely certain, is that there will be continuing change to our lives. Learning how to steer the changes of life, towards the things that you desire, is my definition of success – teaching people how to do it, has become my passion and my life’s mission,”  Brian Mayne

The Radical Leap

Extreme Leadership at Work and Beyond

Based on the book named as one of The 100 Best Business Books of All Time

In this chaotic and extreme age, business leaders must demonstrate an unprecedented level of passion, determination, foresight, dedication, and fearlessness. In this wildly popular speech, leadership speaker, Steve Farber, shows you how to use the LEAP framework – Love, Energy, Audacity and Proof to radically improve your organization and your life.

Greater Than Yourself

3 Steps to Attaining the New Gold Standard of Leadership

The truly great leaders in life and work become so by causing others to be greater than themselves. In this program—based on his new book, Greater Than Yourself—leadership speaker, Steve Farber, shows that dedicating yourself to bringing others along so that they can achieve more than you is the ultimate way to boost talent, ramp productivity and create truly significant current and future leaders.

Radical Accountability

Making the Leap From Individual Contributor to Extreme Leader

Whatever the challenge at your company—improving customer service, coping with change, inspiring transformation, improving corporate culture, recruiting and retaining great talent, building teamwork, fostering innovation—it all comes down to this: someone has to do something significant and enlist others to help. Someone, in other words, has to take accountability. Someone has to lead. And it doesn’t have to be the boss. Leadership, ultimately, has nothing to do with the title on your business card or your position on the organizational chart. It’s about who you are and what you do to change things for the better—regardless of your “place” in the company.

book its not just who you know tommy spauldingIt’s Not Just Who You Know

#2 New York Times Bestseller
#2 Wall Street Journal
#1 USA Today

In It’s Not Just Who You Know, Tommy Spaulding — the former CEO of Up with People — has written the new How to Win Friends & Influence People for the twenty-first century. Success — in business and in life — is all about relationships. In this powerful guide, Spaulding takes Dale Carnegie’s classic philosophy to the next level, showing how, by developing deeper relationships through giving to others and putting them first, we benefit as well.

Tommy Spaulding learned at a very young age that he was not destined to be an academic star. He may have gotten a 4.0, but only if he added his high school and college GPAs together. The reason he found academics so challenging, Tommy discovered, is that he is dyslexic. But his dyslexia didn’t hold him back — in fact, it helped him to develop his innate talents. Tommy is a natural leader; he realized early on that he had the ability to connect with people, whatever their ages or backgrounds. As a teenager, he received a copy of How to Win Friends & Influence People from his father, and it quickly became his guide to building relationship skills.

Tommy developed into a leader in his school and community. His horizons expanded dramatically when he traveled the world as a cast member for Up with People, one of the largest nonprofit international leadership organizations in the world. After graduating from college and business school, he became an executive and eventually CEO of Up with People.

At every step, Tommy learned that the secret to achieving your full potential in life is reaching out for the support and insight and influence of others. None of us achieve success alone. We need the help of other people. In this candid, revealing, and deeply personal book, Tommy expands upon the principles that Dale Carnegie outlined seventy-five years ago and shows us how to take them one step further. To invite others to be partners in our lives and successes, Tommy notes, you first have to be genuinely interested in other people. Among the insights Tommy discusses in the book:

  • It’s not just who you know, or what they can do for you, but what you can do for them.
  • Motives matter.
  • Establishing a deeper connection is about authenticity, not manipulation; reciprocity, not selfishness.
  • Every relationship is a two-way street; we never know when a chance encounter can change the direction of our lives.

In the bestselling tradition of Dale Carnegie’s classic, It’s Not Just Who You Knowshows how each one of us can use the power of “netgiving” — of helping others — to expand our worlds and achieve our goals, and make a difference in our jobs, our careers, and our communities.

What is Extreme Leadership?

If you haven’t already noticed, ‘Leadership’ has become just another one of those pseudo-pop-psycho-cultural buzzwords.

Over time, its meaning has been diluted to such a profound degree, that it’s just another one of those labels we use when we really mean ‘The one with the big office.’ 

True leadership doesn’t come from a snappy vocabulary, the books you have on your shelf, your place on the organization chart, or any other fabrication.

Leadership is intensely personal, intrinsically scary, and it requires us to live up to and beyond the point of fear—every single day. – Steve Farber

Extreme Leadership Summit 2012

Steve and his team have crafted The Extreme Leadership Summit to be something unique, something special, something…well…extreme. And it’s unlike any leadership or personal development “event” you’ve been to before.

The Summit is not a pitch fest (where a bunch of speakers try to sell you stuff), and it’s not a parade of talking heads, to mix a metaphor, where you passively sit, watch the show, take notes, and go home.

Register for Extreme Leadership SummitThis is an experience, a process.

Informed by our brilliant thought-leader-speaker-coaches and with the help of your fellow participants (in small, focused MasterMind Teams), you’ll build a significant, personal Extreme Leadership Action Plan–a plan that you’ll begin applying to your life and business immediately, before The Summit even ends.

And–unlike other events–the vast majority of our speakers will be attending the entire conference. With you. We’re all in this thing together.

Steve Farber Steve Farber

A subject-matter expert in business leadership and a frequent guest on news-talk shows around the country, Farber is a senior-level leadership coach and consultant who has worked with and spoken to a wide variety of public and private organizations in virtually every arena, from the tech sector to financial services, manufacturing, health care, hospitality, entertainment, retail, and even the US government.

Leading from experience.

In 1989, after having run his own financial services company, Farber devoted his professional life to the field of leadership development and has been at it ever since.

Steve was director of service programs at TMI, an international training consultancy, and then worked for 6 years as Vice President and Official Mouthpiece (that’s what it said on his business card) of The Tom Peters Company where he met several of his mentors including author/gurus Tom Peters, Jim Kouzes, and Terry Pearce.

In 2000, Farber established his own company, Extreme Leadership, Inc, where he is president and CEO. He is also the co-founder of The Center for Social Profit Leadership, a non-profit organization formed to serve the leadership development needs of social entrepreneurs, and served as Vice Chairman on the Board of Directors of the world-renown, Up With People, a global leadership program for students from 18 to 29 years old.

A Universal Message.

“Approach the act of leadership as you’d approach an extreme sport: learn to love the fear and exhilaration that naturally comes with the territory.”

Steve Farber is the president of Extreme Leadership, Incorporated, and the founder of The Extreme Leadership Institute, organizations devoted to the cultivation and development of Extreme Leaders in the business community, non-profits and education.

His third book, Greater Than Yourself: The Ultimate Lesson In Leadership, was a Wall Street Journal® and USA Today® bestseller.

His second book, The Radical Edge: Stoke Your Business, Amp Your Life, and Change the World, was hailed as “a playbook for harnessing the power of the human spirit.”

And his first book, The Radical Leap: A Personal Lesson in Extreme Leadership, is already considered a classic in the leadership field. It received Fast Company magazine’s Readers’ Choice Award and was recently named one of the 100 Best Business Books of All Time. His newest edition, The Radical Leap Re-Energized: Doing What You Love in the Service of People Who Love What You Do, is in bookstores now.

book greater than yourself steve farber

Greater Than Yourself

Too many people assume the timeless principles of true leadership—of helping others achieve their full potential—don’t apply Monday through Friday during work hours or in any circumstance where a paycheck is involved.

In GREATER THAN YOURSELF, Steve Farber proves them wrong: in this powerful and inspiring story, Farber shows that the goal of a genuine leader is to help others—teammates, employees, and colleagues—become more capable, confident, and accomplished than they are themselves. Through the actions of a forward-thinking and extraordinarily successful CEO, Farber reveals the three keys to achieving this: Expand Yourself, Give Yourself, and Replicate Yourself.

Filled with actionable principles and innovative ideas, GREATER THAN YOURSELF is perhaps the most powerful message today’s business leaders can learn.

Steve Farber Keynote Speaker

Leadership speaker and author, Steve Farber, has worked with a wide variety of public and private organizations in virtually every arena, from the tech sector to financial services, manufacturing, health care, hospitality, entertainment, retail, government agencies and more.

And whatever the audience, Steve’s speeches are always deeply thought-provoking and eminently practical, as well as inspiring and entertaining—a combination of qualities that are a must for any successful conference or meeting.

These are just a few of the great programs Steve presents to different organizations.

The Radical Leap

Extreme Leadership at Work and Beyond

Based on the book named as one of The 100 Best Business Books of All Time

In this chaotic and extreme age, business leaders must demonstrate an unprecedented level of passion, determination, foresight, dedication, and fearlessness. In this wildly popular speech, leadership speaker, Steve Farber, shows you how to use the LEAP framework – Love, Energy, Audacity and Proof to radically improve your organization and your life.

Greater Than Yourself

3 Steps to Attaining the New Gold Standard of Leadership

The truly great leaders in life and work become so by causing others to be greater than themselves. In this program—based on his new book, Greater Than Yourself—leadership speaker, Steve Farber, shows that dedicating yourself to bringing others along so that they can achieve more than you is the ultimate way to boost talent, ramp productivity and create truly significant current and future leaders.

Radical Accountability

Making the Leap From Individual Contributor to Extreme Leader

Whatever the challenge at your company—improving customer service, coping with change, inspiring transformation, improving corporate culture, recruiting and retaining great talent, building teamwork, fostering innovation—it all comes down to this: someone has to do something significant and enlist others to help. Someone, in other words, has to take accountability. Someone has to lead. And it doesn’t have to be the boss. Leadership, ultimately, has nothing to do with the title on your business card or your position on the organizational chart. It’s about who you are and what you do to change things for the better—regardless of your “place” in the company.

Steve Farber Extreme Leadership Summit Aug 17th – 19th in San Diego

Bestselling Author, Speaker, Consultant, Steve Farber sits down to tell us about his new Leadership Summit.

Steve Farber is extremely well known for his knowledge of what it takes to be a leader and for how to teach people how to be Extreme Leaders.

I heard that Steve was doing this Extreme Leadership Summit and I said, Sign Me Up!

Register for Extreme Leadership Summit

I met Steve Farber through Liz Strauss and Liz said “JW you need to interview Steve…” Well when Liz tells me to do something, I listen. She is one smart lady and she never says anything just to hear herself talk.

I had not read Steve’s book at that point and so the interview was from the view of… “o what’s your book about Steve?”

I was intrigued by what Steve was saying and after reading his book I get it. Extreme Leadership is more than being able to tell a couple people what to do and order some people around… it is about  Stoking Your Business, Amping Your Life and Changing the World.

Marianne Wiliamson said “Your playing small does not serve the world” and this is your chance to network, meet and play full on with people that will change your life.

Steve Thank You for putting this together, thank you for your time and thank you for wanting to share at a deeper level. – JW

Film Director Brett Leonard on Hyperinteractive New Tech FragFilm(tm)

Brett LeonardInnovative Film Director Brett Leonard and International Christoper CreberHigh-Tech Entrepreneur Christopher Creber on New FragFilm

If you’ve wondered where the film industry is headed, you’ll want to listen to this interview of the co-founders of PFL Transmedia.

Award-winning Hollywood director Brett Leonard (Lawnmower Man, Virtuosity, T-Rex:  IMAX 3D) and high-tech and international entrepreneur Christopher Creber talk about

  • The PopFictionLife concept/lifestyle
  • What’s a FragFilm?
  • How PFL Transmedia will change the film industry
  • Their business model
  • PFL Transmedia proprietary technology
  • Their first film, The Other Country
  • Micro-budget films

PopFictionLifePFL Transmedia

PFL Transmedia is a company positioned under the PopFictionLife brand name, with its new genre of interactive digital content called a FragFilm™, set to be as disruptive to the film industry as iTunes is to the music industry, and as indispensable for sharing and discovering video as Instagram is for photos.

FragFilm

Originally developed to monetize music content, a PopFictionLife FragFilm delivers engaging entertainment for the hyper-interactive generation that is no longer content to passively watch content but rather seeks to engage at a deeper level in collaboration with friends on social media.

Overwhelmed with vast quantities of low-quality user-generated video, they expect content quality that was previously available only at high-priced movie theatres.

Targeting the intersection point of these major trends, a PopFictionLife FragFilm delivers engaging entertainment.

A FragFilm is a unique entertainment experience, focusing on story, character, and emotion while adding engagement, interaction, and collaboration.

PopFictionLife is leveraging existing social media and distribution networks, and has developed innovative proprietary technology to deliver a unique experience for consumers and a robust revenue model for independent content creators.

PopFictionLife believes that is the solution to the needs of digital media consumers, content creators and brand managers.

FragFilm is a high-quality piece of independent feature-length digital entertainment content (used to be called a “movie”), produced without a big Hollywood budget (under a million bucks), designed to be initially distributed to you, the digital entertainment consumer (also known as the “audience”) in frags (short for “fragments”) through the Internet and the best part is….

FRAGS ARE FREE!!  Read More…………

I am a big nerd. I have a degree in electronics, I love Sci-Fi and technology, I have worked in the computer industry, I am a musician, I make videos, I run an investor site where I get to talk to investors struggling with new technologies and I am a social media geek. So you can only imagine my surprise that I was able to get one of the most innovative, digital media film directors Brett Leonard and international high-tech entrepreneur Christopher Creber on the same call.

And to talk about new media creation, proprietary technologies and marketing strategies based around social media, music, film and new paradigm technologies, was absolutely amazing.

Thank you to Brett and Christopher for working me into their busy schedules and for staying with me and answering all my questions. The talk was fun and the content was full of these two guys brilliance. – JW

Brett LeonardBrett Leonard

Brett Leonard is considered one of Hollywood’s most innovative film directors, and is known as one of the entertainment industry’s digital media visionaries. Mr. Leonard directed and co-wrote the hit motion picture The Lawnmower Man, starring Pierce Brosnan and Jeff Fahey.

The film is considered a cult classic, way ahead of its time in the use of groundbreaking computer graphics and the portrayal of a networked data culture. The Lawnmower Man is one of the true progenitors of the “cyber genre” and was the number one commercially successful independent film of 1992, costing under $6 million and earning over $200 million worldwide.

In 1993 Mr. Leonard was a key participant of the Sony 2000 think tank, a small group of media visionaries assembled to discuss the future of media. He also directed Peter Gabriel’s Kiss That Frog, the first all computer graphic music video/ride film. Kiss That Frog toured the world as a wildly popular theme park attraction, and won Mr. Leonard a 1994 MTV Music Video Award.

In the ensuing years, Mr. Leonard has continued to push the envelope in his feature film work, establishing himself as a pioneer of digital visual effects and cutting-edge independent film. He stepped into the third dimension with his IMAX 3D work, and directed T-Rex in IMAX 3D, which was the No.#1 hit 3D movie in history for over ten years, having grossed over $100 million worldwide on IMAX screens alone.

Mr. Leonard is also known for having a keen eye for new talent. He was instrumental in bringing Russell Crowe to American film audiences, giving Russell his first lead in a Hollywood film, Virtuosity, starring Denzel Washington, directed by Mr. Leonard. He did the same for Alicia Silverstone in his film for Tri-Star, Hideaway. 2 Rising star, Alex O’Loughlin (lead in the CBS series’ Moonlight, and Three Rivers, the recent hit feature The Back-up Plan and his current role as Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarrett on CBS’s Hawaii Five-O), was given his first break by Brett, and has appeared in Mr. Leonard’s films, Man-Thing and Feed.

“Bringing Business & Consciousness Together To Create Sustainable Success!”

Get More Info………….

Have you ever felt like you had to choose between having a successful business and living an “enlightened” life?

It had always been “either or” for me until some years ago. I found myself working VERY hard for all the success I had, yet noticed there were others around me who seemed to attract what they wanted with ease.
The operative word being ATTRACT.

I finally realized that these people were tapped into a higher consciousness and used this knowing to create the life of their dreams. Over the years I’ve sought to create that same ease of success and in doing so have not only completely transformed my personal life but ALSO I’m experiencing more sustainable success in business.

There is a quickening of this awareness on the planet and it appears the ways of doing business have changed for all of us. As we experience this new awakening, I wanted to share the essence of what has been particularly helpful to me in moving forward as an Enlightened Entrepreneur:

I had already gotten to a point where I was able to forgive many of the people in my life, but I had not always forgiven myself and this caused me to hold on to anger, shame and self loathing.

I was already working on, and getting much more comfortable in my own skin. In fact I love myself more than I have at any point in my life, but this book really brought it home for me and is, both acknowledging my present path and is showing me how to plan and implement so many more ways to reach my full potential.

I believe everyone needs to read this book. If you have read all the other self help and personal development books and still feel there is something holding you back from accomplishing all you want to accomplish then this probabaly exactly what you need to get beyond yourself and make the changes you need to have a truly authentic and fulfilled life.

This interview goes over all the main points of the book and is chocked full of great information so listen, enjoy and learn. Thank you to Dr Jacobson for taking time out of his very busy practice to share his extremely important message with us. – JW

Forgive to Win - Walter Jacobson M.D.Forgive To Win – End Self Sabotage and get everything you want

Introducing The Forgiveness Diet

From Amazon

Most of us don’t get what we want in our lives because we sabotage ourselves: We procrastinate. We resist. We don’t follow through. We don’t do the things that we know are in our best interests. The end result is a life of unfulfillment and disappointment. It doesn’t have to be that way.

When we eliminate the guilt, shame, and self-loathing deeply-embedded in our unconscious mind which generate our self-destructive, self-defeating behaviors, our world changes for the better: We start attracting people and circumstances that cooperate with our goals and propel us towards the manifestation of all our hopes and dreams.

The way to eliminate our guilt, shame, and self-loathing is to esteem ourselves and forgive ourselves. The way to esteem ourselves and forgive ourselves is to esteem and forgive others. Forgive To Win!’s Forgiveness Diet is a structured program that teaches us how to do this. It’s not complicated. And it works!

By consistently practicing a daily regimen of thoughts, actions and exercises devoted to accepting, forgiving and being of service to others, our self-esteem increases, our self-sabotaging behaviors decrease, and we experience greater opportunities and more positive outcomes in all realms of our lives.

With the Forgiveness Diet you can:

  • Be successful in your career.
  • Generate wealth & prosperity.
  • Be successful in your relationships.
  • Generate love & harmony.
  • Increase self-confidence.
  • Eliminate fear & worry.
  • Be happy & healthy.
  • Lose weight & get in shape.
  • Live long & live well.

Saving and Reforesting the Brazilian Rainforest with Alana Lea

The Atlantic Rainforest in Brazil is already 93% gone, but it can be restored.

Alana Lea, Author of Trees of Transformation, talks to OPM about the tragic plight of the Atlantic Rain Forest and solutions that can be implemented to allow sustainable reforestation of this very important eco system.

A few years back I helped co-found and was on the member board of Humanity Unites Brilliance (HUB)

This was a wonderful organization built on the concept of sustainable giving. Non-profits, who have to compete (beg) for funds, send a percentage of the donations out to the field and then go back to compete for more. An unsustainable process at best.

HUB was a short success for reasons I will not go into here. It did, however attract some of the top philanthropists and thought leaders of our time like Lynn Twist, Barbra Marx Hubbard, Jean Houston, Jack Canfield, Dr. Michael Beckwith and many other wonderful people.

Alana Lea was one of those incredible people. Alana is a true and caring giver. She was never shy about lending her talents or time for a great cause or just to help.

I want to thank Alana for taking the time to sit down with me, as she is truely a busy person, to explain what is going on in the Atlantic Rain Forest and how we might be able to help her organization help the people, the forest and ultimately the world, by reforesting this most important world resource – JW

The Atlantic Rainforest in BrazilThe Atlantic Rainforest

From Wikipedia

The Atlantic Forest (Portuguese: Mata Atlântica) is a region of tropical and subtropical moist forest, tropical dry forest, tropical savanna, semi-deciduous forest and mangrove forests which extends along the Atlantic coast of Brazil from Rio Grande do Norte state in the north to Rio Grande do Sul state in the south, and inland as far as Paraguay and the Misiones Province of Argentina.

The Atlantic Forest is characterized by a high species diversity and endemism.[1] It was the first environment that the Portuguese conquerors encountered over 500 years ago when it was thought to have had an area of 1 to 1.5 million km2 and stretching an unknown distance inland.[2]

Currently, the Atlantic Forest spans over 4000km2 along the coast of Brazil and in a small part of Paraguay and Argentina.[3][4] In Argentina, it is known as Selva Atlántica.

The Atlantic Forest is now designated a World Biosphere Reserve, which contains a large number of highly endangered species. The enormous biodiversity of the Atlantic Forest results in part from the wide range of latitude it covers, its variations in altitude, its diverse climatic regimes as well as the geological and climatic history of the whole region.[4]

The Atlantic Forest is isolated from is neighboring large South American forests: The Amazon Region and the Andean Forest. The open vegetation of the Caatinga and the Cerrado separate it from the Amazon, and the dry vegetation of the central depressions of the Chaco separate it from the Andean Forest. This isolation has resulted in an evolution of numerous endemic species, such as lion tamarins, woolly spider monkey, and marmosets.[4]

Alana Lea

Born in the midst of the most diverse and endangered rainforest in Brazil, Alana was given purpose. But it took a lifetime to discover how being a horticulturalist, a Smithsonian botanical artist, an entrepreneur, a traveler and a public speaker could serve her purpose of rainforest renewal. She has become a real life Lorax.

Trees of Transformation - Alana LeaAuthor of Trees of Transformation

Trees of Transformation is the first in a series of wake up storybooks about the people who are taking a stand for Nature in the midst of corporate giants.

One of those people is Alana Lea, who became an advocate for the Atlantic Forest in Brazil where she was born –– now 93% gone. Her concerns about deforestation, climate change and global warming transformed her into a full time activist.

Discover what she learned as a social entrepreneur, on a mission of organic reforestation, competing with international non-profit greenwash. You’ll meet the people who inspire her, and deepen her determination to find solutions, as well as what gives her hope.

This is the story of an on the ground ecological/environmental activist, inviting you to discover, innovate, partner and find solutions with her, creating the future we all want for our children.

Alana Lea is a Change Agent.

She’s a founding member of the Women Speakers Association, a facilitator of  Pachamama Alliance Symposiums – Awakening the Dreamer, and US Ambassador for the global reforestation NGO – WeForest.

She is social artist.

Accomplished in botanical art with work in the Smithsonian,
publications, a line of eco-textiles features her designs of the rainforest. She has also created Peace Through Art events for more than 20 years, known for her  service to the Peace Alliance.

She is a social entrepreneur.

As founder of Rainforest ECO, she’s raised both awareness and money for  reforestation in her homeland, Brazil. She represents the Nativas Nursery Association of organic tree growers in Sao Paulo state, offering their trees to the  global public through a tree gifting site – www.iGiveTrees.com.

Together, they have replanted 4,194 trees in the Atlantic Rainforest since 2011.

She is a storytelling earth activist.

Alana inspires audiences to renew hope for the future with talks which include:

  • For Closure – Plant Your Hopes
  • Find Your Footing in the Unknown
  • The Story of a Trillion Trees

New Directions Walk for WarriorsWalk for Warriors

WEST LOS ANGELES, Calif. (May 14, 2012) – The West Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce and New Directions, Inc. are proud to partner again to announce the 2nd Annual Memorial Day Walk for Warriors on May 28, 2012. Walk for Warriors is a family-friendly 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk to help transitioning veterans in Los Angeles.

Walk for Warriors will help provide assistance for veterans through transitional housing, job training and placement, counseling, adult basic education classes and family reunification services. In addition to the race, Walk for Warriors will feature an Expo booth fair with food and local businesses as well as a performance by the award-winning New Directions Veterans Choir, a singing group comprised of formerly homeless veterans.

Participants can register, form a team and fund-raise by visiting www.walkforwarriors.org. Early registration is $35, and is available until Thursday, May 17. Walk for Warriors is a partnership of New Directions, Inc. a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing comprehensive services to veterans in Los Angeles and the West Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce.

“The West Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce is always ready to step up and help those who have served our country and sacrificed for our Freedom,” said Chamber President Ron Adams. “I had so much fun last year. I was ecstatic when we partnered with New Directions again with hopes of helping more veterans. “

Last year, nearly 600 people took part in the Walk for Warriors run/walk. Teams got sponsors from California and all over the United States and beyond via www.walkforwarriors.org.

Christine Devine

This year’s event will be hosted by KTTV Fox 11 news anchor and local philanthropist Christine Devine. Devine is the recipient of 16 Emmys, including the Academy’s prestigious Governor’s Award, and one award specifically for a story on injured and disfigured veterans.

“I’m thrilled to be participating in Walk for Warriors,” Devine said. “With the unique set of challenges facing veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, this event will bring attention to the urgent need for supporting our vets as they transition home.”

New DirectionsNew Directions

New Directions, a nonprofit transitional living program, has been helping the Los Angeles veteran community since 1992.

According to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), there are more than 8,000 homeless veterans on any given night in Los Angeles.

New Directions offers a wide variety of services including housing, substance abuse treatment, counseling, remedial education, job training and placement as well as family reunification and money management classes.

Why do we exist?

New Directions provides services, support and transitional housing to homeless veterans with co-occurring disorders. Essential services at New Directions’ five residential homes include drug and alcohol detoxification and rehabilitation, mental health treatment, food, clothing, shelter, job training, and help with finding permanent housing. This nonprofit agency is unique because it was founded by formerly homeless Vietnam veterans, and has developed an effective “veterans helping veterans” model.

As women and men head home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, there are more and increasingly diverse vets in need of help. New Directions’ individualized care and treatment methods enable the agency to provide comprehensive, holistic services to veterans of all ages and backgrounds – both seasoned veterans and a new generation just now returning from combat.

What have you accomplished?

From its founding in 1992, New Directions’ history has been filled with reclaimed lives, rediscovered futures and re-imagined possibilities for more than 30,000 veterans who have faithfully and generously served our country.

Each year, New Directions extends help to some 600 veterans through residential substance abuse treatment programs, job training and placement, health assessment and emergency shelter services and a permanent housing placement program. Since beginning operations in an 8-person home, New Directions has grown into a major national model for rehabilitating and housing homeless veterans. Now with 5 facilities, 229 beds, and new permanent, supportive housing in development, New Directions makes a difference in the lives of individual veterans, and on the landscape of homelessness in Los Angeles.

Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust – The Story of Legendary Studio Engineer and Producer Ken Scott

Ken Scott was the Studio Recording Engineer and Producer for groups like The Beatles, David Bowie, Elton John, Supertramp and so many more…

Ken Scott, in his new book Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust tells the behind the scenes stories of what went on in the studio. The personal stories, the politics and for all you audio techs and engineers, Ken talks about the process and gives specifics including equipment lists.

I met Ken Scott at a recent talk he gave at the Musician’s Institute in Hollywood, CA.

It was an incredible night of storytelling by the legendary recording engineer and producer.

Ken told humorous stories of the behind the scenes and he played, never before heard, clips of Beatles and David Bowie sessions.

I was transfixed as Ken is an excellent story teller and makes even the technical sound wonderfully interesting.

I was blessed later, to receive a pre release copy of the book… (no pictures) and I read it cover to cover as Ken seems to have worked with most of my more favorite bands of the 60’s and 70’s. His discography is a who’s who of famous albums, artists and singles.

I finally got to sit down with Ken at the corporate offices of Alfred Music Publishers, the publishers of Ken’s book, for an hour of talking about writing the book to Ken’s thoughts on current recording processes, record label politics and much more… It was truely an honor to hang out with Ken and I took the time to pummel him with questions. I had so many I did not get to them all, but luckily the book is very thorough.

I would like to thank Devon Blaine of the Blaine Group, Alfred Music Publishing and Ken Scott for setting this up and for taking the time to make this a great interview. – JW

Scott moved to Trident Studios where he worked with such artists as Elton John, Harry Nilsson, Mahavishnu Orchestra, America and with George Harrison on the 6x platinum selling album All Things Must Pass.[2]

Scott went on to co-produce David Bowie‘s albums Hunky Dory (1971), The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1972), Aladdin Sane (1973) and Pin Ups (1973) before producing Supertramp, The Tubes, Dixie Dregs, Devo, Missing Persons, Kansas, Happy The Man and Level 42.[3][4]

Abbey Road to Ziggy StardustAbbey Road to Ziggy Stardust

Ken Scott is releasing his first book co-written with Bobby Owsinski, Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust for the 50th Anniversary of the Abbey Roads recordings with The Beatles and the 40th Anniversary of Ziggy Stardust.

From Amazon

Ken Scott holds a unique place in music history as one of only five engineers to have recorded The Beatles, but his experiences as a producer may be just as profound. Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust shares the intimate memories of Ken Scott s days working with some of the most important artists of the 20th century while crafting a sound that has influenced several generations of music makers.

The Beatles Sitting on Abbey Road Steps While Filming Famous Walk Across the Abbey Road

Ken’s work has left an indelible mark on hundreds of millions of fans with his skilled contributions to Magical Mystery Tour and The White Album, and as a producer and/or engineer of six David Bowie albums (including the groundbreaking Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars), as well as other timeless classics from a who’s-who of classic rock and jazz acts, including Elton John, Pink Floyd, Jeff Beck, Duran Duran, The Rolling Stones, Lou Reed, America, Devo, Kansas, The Tubes, Missing Persons, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Billy Cobham, Dixie Dregs, and Stanley Clarke.

Funny, poignant, and oh, so honest, Ken pulls no punches as he tells it as he saw it, as corroborated by a host of famous and not-so famous guests who were there as well. Plus, you’ll be privy to several exclusive stories, facts, and technical details only available in Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust.

National press campaign planned around 40th anniversary of Ziggy Stardust release on June 6, 2012 Includes never-before-told stories of The Beatles, David Bowie and Elton John Many never-before-seen photographs.

Conversation with Randy Gage Prosperity and Success Mentor

Randy Gage, sometimes known as the Millionaire Messiah, talks about the negative memes that keep us from reaching our potential.

Randy’s Rants, His Blog, his speaches… Randy does not shy away from controversial conversations about religion, politics or especially about prosperity as Randy feels it is a sin to be Poor.

I have been following Randy for many years, since I first heard him speak to around a thousand people at a conference. He is a great speaker, funny, inspiring, smart and wise.

I especially love his no fear, straight talk, sense of humor and his lessons in how to build sales, teams, community….. and about what it takes to have a successful and prosperous life.

I have contacted with Randy via his blog and on Twitter several times and he is always the nicest guy. Randy turned me on to Empire Avenue and gave some great tips on how to play and make it work for me… He also wrote a pretty cool Empire Avenue Manifesto if you are an EAv fan you should read it.

I have tried to get Randy to interview with me before, but his schedule is busy and his commitments plentiful so I was very happy to hear that Randy would sit down with me between trips to the airport.

I have to thank Shawne Duperon, of Project Forgive, as she contacted Randy on my behalf. Shawne is a Rockstar!

If you really want to get to know Randy I suggest you start with his book “Why You’re Dumb Sick and Broke and How to Get Smart Healthy and Rich”.

This book is on of my favorites and have gone back to it many times for little pearls of wisdom. Randy is a great storyteller and his writing style makes his 7 universal laws that govern prosperity easy to understand.

Randy is also famous for his super successful Network Marketing Training series Duplication Nation which, many have used as the number one MLM training course. I have used it with success and if you want to know how to run a successful MLM business this is a course I believe you really need to study. Yes Randy is very successful in the direct sales industry.

I actually do not think that Randy is that controversial. He tells you what he thinks and people are not always used to that. Thank You Randy – JW

Randy GageRandy Gage

“I believe you were born to be rich, people are meant to be inspired, and conventions should rock.

I believe a blog can change the world and a speech can change a life.

I believe safe is the new risky, boring is criminal, and pitchers should hit.

Call me a philosopher, a Jedi Knight or the millionaire messiah, just don’t call me late for dinner. I like hot cars, warm beaches and cold Dr. Pepper. Quiet confidence and loud ideas are sexy. When I’m not prowling the podium or locked in my lonely writer’s garret, you’ll find me playing 3rd base for a softball team somewhere.

I believe in my work, because I believe in you.”

From Amazon

There is probably no one on earth better qualified to help you reach more success in MLM than Randy Gage. His Duplication Nation (formerly How to Earn at Least $100,000 a Year in Network Marketing) is the top selling training album in MLM, and his Escape the Rat Race is the #1 recruiting tool in the business. His resources have been translated into more than 15 languages and sold in the millions around the globe.

Randy helped introduce Network Marketing in places like Slovenia, Croatia, Bulgaria and Macedonia. He’s been a company VP of Marketing, and served as a consultant to numerous companies, designing compensation plans, creating marketing materials and developing duplicable systems for them. Randy has conducted training for the finest companies in the industry, and spoken in more than 35 countries.

Through his coaching programs and private consulting, Randy has helped the top income earners in numerous companies. He has arguably trained more MLM millionaires than anyone alive today. But most importantly, Randy teaches from real-world experience, earning millions of dollars as a distributor.

Randy has conducted thousands of training programs and presented thousands more opportunity meetings. Several years ago he dusted off his white board and starting from scratch he quickly rose to become the #1 income earner in his company worldwide. He knows what is working in the marketplace right now, and he’ll teach you exactly how to reach mega success in these conditions.

Randy has made his money, and continues to work only for the challenge and to support his personal enrollees. He has achieved the perfect balance between work and life. When he’s not drawing circles, you’ll find him playing 3rd base for the South Florida Carnivores, riding his bike, racing cars, or collecting comic books. His guilty pleasures are Sci-Fi, Krispy Kreme, and watching Project Runway. Randy splits his time between Miami Beach, Sydney, and Paris.

Why you are Sick, Dumb and Broke

And How to Get Smart, Healthy and Rich.

This groundbreaking self-help book reveals the secrets of manifesting health, happiness, and prosperity in your life—but not in a way you’ve experienced before. Blunt, outspoken, and brutally honest, Randy Gage shoots down the forces that hold you back and keep you dumb, sick, and broke, and shows you how to take action to get smart, healthy, and rich.

Jayrah is very active in social media on Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, Sound Cloud and many other channels, to get out the word and build support for him on the show.

Randy Jackson says that Jayrah is “Mad Good”. He is also known as a very

upbeat and exuberant guy and Jayrah says he has been asked to tone it down, but Jayrah is passionate and sincerely excited and you can tell from this interview. Even after a full day in the studio Jayrah is excited and full of spunk.

Jayrah, thanks for keeping your word we will be watching you. – JW

Jayrah has been described as the new R&B sensation, winning over audiences with his great personality and unique sound, he has definitely made his mark in the entertainment industry .

Jayrah’s gift as a singer, song writer and producer has landed him the opportunity to collaborate with various well known writers and producers such as Rufus Blaq, the Streiotypes and other top ten billboard and Grammy award winning producers. Creating songs and intricate melody’s that express the beautiful moments and fabrics of life in which we all can relate to, Jarah has established a lane of his own!

Jayrah was born and raised in long beach California, by single mother Kitra Williams who was signed to Motown records at the time. As a young child,she carried him on her stomach while recording for long vigorous hours. That is when she became the biggest musical influence in his life. Jarah has been singing since he was able to talk and writing since he was 6 years old.

His mother being the leading lady of the many hit musicals and dramas and also touring around the world with icons such as TD Jakes “Women Thou Art loosed,” Tyler Perry’s “Diary of a Mad Black Woman” and Oprah Winfrey’s Broadway musical “The Color Puple” left him with some big shoes to fill. Nevertheless those great accomplishments set the tone and opened many favorable doors for Jarah.

With passion, humbleness and talent, Jayrah is well capable of trail blazing a path of his own. His dynamic voice and sultry songs has pierced the hearts of many, making an everlasting impression on the who’s who and what’s hot in the industry! Jarah’s main goal in life is to share his love and passion for music with the world.
