Audrey Bell-Kearney, The Voice Of Gwinnett
I had the opportunity to interview a young woman who is doing some amazing things in the real estate market by creating homes made from containers. These micro-homes are a great for people who are looking to scale back. They can also be one of the answers to our housing crisis.
In this interview she shares what the process is to have a container home built. She shares how she and her team have overcome obstacles that may have stood in their way. If you are interested in container homes and micro-living check out my latest episode with Wanona Satcher.

Hi my name is Eli!
(Like “Ellie,” but spelled in a way that, while quite cool, tends to make people think I’m a guy)
In 2013, my life changed in a HUGE way, when I finally cracked the code of digital marketing and found out that most of what I’d been told was flat-out WRONG!
I cracked the code with my own strategy, adding significant, repeatable revenue to my business
But before that, I was really struggling.
I came to the realization that every marketing program — and most marketing “gurus” — teach you the same things: how to get more clients, how to make more money, how to grow your business.
But nobody is really taking a step back and saying wait a minute! The real question is how can you better serve your clients? How can you get faster, better, bigger results for your customers?
At that point it was clear that if I was gonna get out of this feast-or-famine cycle — and end the constant worry of where the next client was coming from — I needed to change the way I ran my business.
In 2007, at the age of 37, Gail Lynn’s dream of making a difference in the world was rudely shattered. The accumulated stress of two challenging relationships and three extremely competitive careers in the automotive, telecommunications, and film industries had decimated her physical,
emotional, and psychological reserves, leaving her with a medical diagnosis of severe cardiovascular stress and on the verge of an instant heart attack.
Determined to restore her health, Gail plunged into the world of energy medicine. When a series of whole-body light and sound treatments reversed her diagnosis, she set out to uncover both the ancient history and modern science behind light and sound as healing therapies. After opening a light and sound healing center in Colorado in 2010, a series of extraordinary synchronicities guided her to combine light and sound technologies with sacred geometry and Tesla mathematics. The result was a revolutionary vibroacoustic, resonance healing chamber called the Harmonic Egg, which is advancing frequency healing to an unimagined level and giving thousands of people new hope for a quality of life they never imagined.
Gail's story is one of inspiration and self-created magic. From her humble beginnings in Detroit to a seven-year relationship with Elvis Presley’s step-brother…and a role as a producer on a Hollywood movie about "The King”…to her triumphant success stories with energy medicine and collaborations with world-renowned composers, musicians, professors, and physicians, Gail is part storyteller, part Renaissance Woman, part Sage from times long ago. You will want to walk with her on every step of her amazing journey, as well as experience the technological paradigm shift now known as the Harmonic Egg.

If you are committed to really getting healthy this year, then you definitely want to listen to this entire interview. It is packed with so much great information to help you live a healthy and fulfilling life. I didn't even know that there were other colors of cauliflower until this interview. My guest today is D. Amaadi Coleman affectionately known as "The Belly Therapist".
Amaadi's journey as a wellness practitioner started at home, because movement was a must in her family. When she and her brother were young, their mother would wake them up before sunrise to bike or jog around the neighborhood before school. So, movement has always been a part of her life. Her mother made sure of it.
She added healthy nutrition habits to her movement practices in college while studying Spanish. There, Amaadi became a vegetarian and delved into researching food and how the body reacts to it. Combining the two were the building blocks for developing a body that felt efficient, healthy, and strong.
Amaadi is a mom to three sons, a NASM certified personal trainer, group exercise instructor, nutrition lifestylist, and holistic healing advocate. After naturally healing her own abdominal separation (diastasis), she became the first Black Tupler Technique® Trained Professional. Now, as the Belly Therapist™, she focuses on educating and supporting the natural healing of this condition among women postpartum. She also helps women celebrate their bodies while healing their bellies.
I hope you enjoy this episode and feel free to leave me a comment. You might win a special prize!

www.GoodMorningGwinnett.com Even though Melissa M. Proctor never played basketball, her dream as a child was to be the first female coach in the NBA. Your heart will sink and soar as you live through Melissa's trials and triumphs. Through incredible experiences like surviving Hurricane Andrew, moving to London and becoming the first "ball girl" for the NBA's Miami Heat, her
unconventional path has taken a number of twists and turns that has led to earning the position of Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for the Atlanta Hawks and State Farm Arena.

Throughout the pages, Melissa shares lessons learned, guiding principles, and a means of comfort for those not quite sure what to do next. She presents a powerful framework for defining "Guiding Principles" that anyone can use to help direct life decisions. With her laid-back style and down to earth attitude, Melissa offers the option of acceptance at a time when many are confused and hope when uncertainty distorts the light at the end of the tunnel.
