Unblind My Mind: What are we eating?

We are what we eat, but what are we eating?  Katherine Reid, PhD biochemist takes us on an intriguing journey of diet changes that diminished her daughter’s autistic behaviors.  She reveals an association between a common ingredient in the Western diet and many chronic illnesses that plague developed countries. Katherine tells the story that led to her founding Unblind My Mind, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people improve their health through improved diet.

From this talk you will learn:

·      What, where and why MSG (monosodium glutamate) is in the food, medicine, and our body supplies.

·      How MSG excites the nervous system and contributes to sensory disorders, inflammation, and microflora imbalance.

·      What you can do to avoid MSG and restore balance in your nervous and inflammatory systems. 

 

An Old Time Radio Adventure Nov 03, 2017
The Lone Ranger

The program would most likely consist of a look back at some of the radio programs, people and commercials (narrative and singing) and a short re-enactment of an adventure with The Lone Ranger……entertainment elements we oldsters grew up with and which we’d like to share and acquaint those of your club for whom this is possibly ancient history with.  It’s great fun.

As you no doubt know, this is Dave Eshleman’s proposal and he will join us since he is exceptionally talented and a vital member of our Old Time Radio Players

Pivot to Your First Million!

Is it really possible to make $1 million dollars your first year in business – or does that only happen for a privileged few?

A.J. MacQuarrie created his first million dollars in one year based on 7 strategies he applied as a result of his business’s rejection on “Dragons’ Den”, the Canadian version of “Shark Tank”. At first, A.J. was disheartened, but the feedback he received about his healthy vending machine business proved to be invaluable. Their critiques were right on target: he needed to develop something exclusive and make his business scalable.

When A.J. pivoted from his original idea and altered his business model, he landed directly on the right path to exclusivity and scalability – and the success he desired quickly followed. In this talk, A.J. will share the 7 strategies you need to know to get on the path to your first million dollars!
