http://www.michelemattia.com

Michele Mattia is a radio/media personality, best-selling author, inspirational speaker, certified life design coach and thought leader who truly walks the talk! She celebrates the divine gifts, talents and skills in everyone and is passionate about empowering people to play big while consciously creating the life they deserve.

Rarely at a loss for words, Michele would be the first one to tell you she was born with something to say! Imagine her surprise when she slowed down long enough at a silent retreat just before her 40th birthday, to ask, "What would I do now if I knew I could not fail?" Little did she know that would be the beginning of a new adventure that saw her sell a successful Manhattan technology-consulting firm of 12 years and move into a life that honors her true purpose.

Michele emphasizes the importance of maintaining a strong focus on Life's Dash, that precious time between arrival and departure from this world that so many take for granted. Her commitment to inspire, co-create and support her clients and audiences to tap into the core of their beings is powerful. One of her greatest joys is to watch as people discover the divine ideas, possibilities and dreams that they are courageous enough to demand.

Now a sought after and dynamic speaker, Michele believes we must embrace the knowing that we deserve to live a life we love. She understands that we don't serve the rest of the world or ourselves by playing small. We need to be willing to say, "Yes! I choose me!"


Jim Melis - Former CFO Jim Melis, Comedy Imitates LifeJimHeadshot

What a difference a year can make in someone's life! Just ask comedian Jim Melis.

Though he's been a stand-up comedian for most of the last 12 years, Melis also held down a full-time job as CFO of a local institution of higher learning until last year when he created a life where he could be with his newborn son and work with both his passions: numbers and comedy. In doing so, he started The Melis Group and works as a financial consultant.

"I'd go straight from the office to the comedy clubs, still in my business suit," Melis recalls. "I am great with numbers. Finance and business has always come easy to me but it's not what I love."

"Carrying the one," Melis quipped about math, "doesn't make people laugh. Ever since I was a boy I loved to make people laugh. I find the instant feedback you get from the audience to be very exciting. It's like no other job out there. You tell them your story and the audience tells you instantly if you are funny or if that joke needs a little work or if you need to go home and hide under the bed because you were so bad. You don't have to wait days to read a review or in the case of financial matters, months for an underwriter to tell you whether or not you were successful."

Melis is also a new dad. Last year his wife, Michele, gave birth to their son, Grayson. He tells his fans, "If you didn't figure it out from that little baby I'm always carrying around, then you may have come to this conclusion from the puke on my shirt, or the poop in my hair."

His comedic style is really not a stretch from the real Jim Melis. "I take the stage and just be myself," he said. His delivery is very mellow and relaxed. Most people find it refreshing to hear someone who can be very funny with clean jokes. Those buying tickets to a Jim Melis show will hear his commentary on dating, marriage, divorce, pregnancy, fatherhood, sleep deprivation, food, his parents (he calls his father the "Greek Archie Bunker") and a host of other subjects. He said, "I talk about everything in my life, good or bad, as well as cheese, my wife and other things I like to touch."

Melis got his start in 1999 and still works the New York area comedy club circuit where high-caliber comedians go from one club to another. He has performed at top-quality comedy clubs such as the Broadway Comedy Club, the New York Comedy Club, the Eastville Comedy Club, the Gotham Comedy Club as well as the Comic Strip, where Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock and Adam Sandler were discovered and the Duplex where Joan Rivers and Woody Allen were discovered.

Inspired by Grayson, Jim and Michele recently started the Making a Difference One Laugh at a Time Foundation. This 501 (c)(3) charitable organization brings awareness and funding to charities and projects that provide relief to the poor, distressed, ill or underprivileged. This is done through laughter, by producing comedy shows with amazing top professional comedians such as Wanda Sykes who will appear this year.

Mr. Brian K. Sidella – Owner and PresidentAfter 25 years in Corporate America, Brian K. Sidella, decided it was time he followed the dream of owning his own business. After more than 16 months of evaluating the MedSpa Industry, he and wife Diana Santa Maria, a successful Personal Injury/Medical Malpractice attorney (www.santamarialaw.net), decided to open Forever Young MedSpa in their hometown of Cooper City, Florida. Intent on putting Cooper City on the map for having the best MedSpa in South Florida, they established the following four goals and embarked on plans to turn this dream into reality.

1) Forever Young MedSpa would be set up to offer only the latest, most effective, FDA approved non surgical cosmetic enhancement procedures and treatments.

2) Forever Young MedSpa would employ only a well-respected, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon as Medical Director. Doing so would allow them to offer clients who wished to take their cosmetic enhancement procedures to the next level, a complimentary surgical consultation by a competent physician already familiar with their personal goals.

3) Forever Young MedSpa would recruit only certified medical practitioners and Aestheticians who shared their commitment to delivering world class medical treatments in a Spa environment.

4) Most of all, Forever Young MedSpa would gain the loyalty of their clients by consistently delivering the Forever Young “Difference”. In short, making each customer’s visit the most pleasant and satisfying they have ever experienced when getting cosmetic procedures performed.

Toward that end, Brian spent 16 months evaluating various Franchisors and Industry Consultants as well as meeting with nearly 100 Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologist, and MedSpa owners. He has attended dozens of Medical Aesthetic Seminars and countless vendor demonstrations all over the country to select the safest, most technologically advanced and effective equipment available on the market today.

Ben Troupe Is Raising The Standards 

Young kids often look up to athletes, both professional and collegiate, as heroes who they wish to be like in the future. Athletes influence kids, especially those considered to be disadvantaged minorities, and those who demonstrate higher than average talents. Is the basis for their responsibility and accountability to act morally? When athletes engage in unethical and immoral activities, such as steroids or drugs, they demonstrate to those that look up to them that it is okay, or cool, many will indulge in the same or similar unethical behaviors exhibited by their hero athletes.

However, the worshiping of athletes can come with great responsibility. The heavy influence of an Athlete can lead to young children and young athletes to focus solely on athletic goals, rather than academic goals. Many young adults who idolize pro athletes as there role models and hero often have unrealistic goals of becoming professional athletes themselves when they do not always have the talent or work ethic required.  When these specific athletes make unethical choices, many young athletes and children will indulge in the same or similar unethical behaviors exhibited by their hero athletes.
