Episode #114 - Heath Schneider - The Bootlegger's Grandson | Iowa Legendary Rye - The REAL Story
Heath Schneider is the bootlegger's grandson working tirelessly to reclaim his grandmother's legacy and save a small Iowa town's history from corporate bullshiters. Representing a piece of American history caulked full of fiercely independent German Catholics Heath Schneider is a Las Vegas Mortgage Professional with a ton of years and sales behind him. So why is he involved in making Rye now? Simple. It's Grandma's reputation that's at stake and he's looking to set the story straight; at all costs. Heath Schneider is the bootlegger's grandson working tirelessly to reclaim his grandmother's legacy and save a small Iowa town's history from corporate charlatans. Heath represents a piece of American history chocked full of fiercely independent German Catholics that were quite defiant back in the 1930s. Most look at Bootlegging as a sort of odyssey froth with all kinds of exhilarating short stories that shows the struggle in a man vs man setting. On the one side the law which was after any bootlegger so they could throw them in jail and keep them from making that sinful beverage. (this was during prohibition) and the poor town folk of that little town in Iowa that just wanted to be able to pay their bills and enjoy a great "juice". Heath sits with Michael to give the reality of what his battle is with the brand and how he's striving to reclaim his Grandma's legacy. Literally stolen from the family through corporate dishonesty, another brand continue to maintain to this day that their story is true and correct. In fact, after researching it, it's no where near true. Heath shares his story of how he got involved and how he plans an going after the big corporate bullies. (Heath's not easily bullied; he's like 6'7" so good luck with bullying him) If you want to know more about the history of bootlegging in Iowa or to know more about grandma, follow them on Facebook or on their website: Don't forget to subscribe today! Share this link with your friends as well! You can also order Iowa Legendary Rye online via their website.

Episode #92 - Kristine Ovsepian - Journeys to Heal
Kristine Ovsepian, M.A., C. Ht. is a Quantum Healing specialist, Certified Hypnotherapist & Life coach. She is the author of "Living Through Choice", a certified NLP and EFT Practitioner, Intuitive Healer and Breathwork Facilitator.  Growing up Kristine always felt she was different. At an early age, she heard the call to be of service to humanity. For decades, she tried to avoid the messages coming from the Universe to follow her true path, because she wanted to “fit in” to the norm of what society required of her. In today's podcast, Kristine and Mike dive into the world of energy and healing. Kristine starts off by sharing her personal journey and then they start getting into why society should consider more of the wholistic approach to living; not just healing. The reality is that modern medicine can sometimes be saturated with technology and commercial interests, which can promote more of a focus on the body as a machine rather than a complex system made up of interdependent components. Kristine has taken the holistic approach in order to help her clients to stave off not just physical but emotional and energy issues as well.  Sit back and take a listen to this conversation and if you have questions of course feel free to reach out to her on her website: You can also find her on social: Instagram: @journeystoheal Facebook: LinkedIn: Credit for Audio Intro: "Who wants Cawfee?" by Vic DIBitetto "Tick'd off Vic" grab a pound of Cawfee today! #energyhealing #energyhealingclasses #energyhealings #energyhealingwithluisarusso #energyhealingcoach #KristineOvsepian #CoffeewithMike #journeytohealing

I don’t know about y'all out there…but I'm loving my Google Hub while taking advantage today by downloading "Business Casual" where Journalist Nora Ali and comedian Scott Rogowsky ask industry leaders the questions you wish you could ask yourself. Episodes drop every Monday and Thursday. Presented by JobsOhio. This is a reality check podcast where you can really get down to business.  Find a podcast that you like, and listen.

The Extraordinary Unordinary You - Simone Knego
Though Simone Knego has had a varied career, she began her professional life as a Certified Public Accountant in 1995 working in Tyler, Texas. Simone holds both a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and a Master of Accounting from the University of Florida. After she moved to Sarasota, Florida in 2000, Simone went back to school to become a teacher. Raising six kids, she was already managing her own classroom— she decided why not get paid for work that aligned with her own daily life? She worked as an Elementary and Exceptional Student Education teacher for three years, where she strove to create a safe and productive learning environment for all students. The job opened her eyes even further to the role schools can play in providing children with stability, especially those who may not experience the comfort of constancy at home.  Jewish Federations focus on making the world a better place for all people, and through her volunteer work, she witnessed the difference that Jewish Federations can make locally and across the globe. Wanting to play a role in this important work, she became a board member of the Sarasota-Manatee Jewish Federation where she was the 2016 Doris Loevner Memorial Young Leadership Award winner and sits at their board. Simone also served as the 2018-2019 Co-Chair of the Jewish Federations of North America’s National Young Leadership Cabinet.Simone’s work with the Jewish Federation helped her realize that she had the ability to inspire others to dedicate time and resources to projects, both personal and charitable, that can make a difference in people’s lives. Simone has shared this message with numerous audiences and, in doing so, has discovered her passion for public speaking.

On this episode of Java Chat, we are joined by successful entrepreneur, prolific writer, and professional speaker Randy Gage. Randy details how a stint in jail at 15 years old led him on a journey of self-evaluation, during which he learned how to replace his “victim” mindset with a “victor” mindset. Drawing upon content from his book Radical Rebirth, Randy dives deep into the ways our minds have been subconsciously programmed by memes, or what he calls “mind-viruses”, from a very young age. He discusses how these core foundational beliefs we pick up early in life can affect everything in our future, from religious philosophies to health and wellness to our outlook on marriage and relationships. Randy’s book teaches us how to recognize these mind-viruses and learn to reprogram ourselves in order to better achieve prosperity.

Java Chat Podcast Welcomes Shannel Winslow - Master of Performance Management
Shannel Winslow joins us on Java Chat to talk about the importance of creating a functional corporate environment.

She founded Within Your Grasp Consulting, LLC, a women-owned capital consulting firm that provides businesses with innovative strategies to improve employee performance. In this episode, we discuss why companies need to focus on satisfying employees as much as they focus on increasing revenue. In many corporate structures, employees view their work environment as a battleground where they fight each other for new positions, increased pay, recognition and more. To solve that issue, Shannel stresses that companies need to regularly check in with their employees to ensure employees' needs are being fulfilled. When employees enjoy coming to work, overall productivity increases and liability decreases. Shannel's company, Within Your Grasp Consulting, offers small to mid-sized businesses with a variety of services from strategic consulting for strategy and goal organization to leadership coaching for strength and skill development. Also, Shannel runs a personal growth blog called "Inspire 2 Happy" where she writes about growth through the lens of career, wellness and family.

Besides being a pharmacist and natural wellness expert, Dr. Elmore is also a vegan cook, yogi, podcast host and a business strategy coach. In this episode, we not only discuss corruption within Big Pharma, but we also dissect what it truly means to be an entrepreneur. Regardless of what industry you are in or what niche you serve, ethical business is about providing solutions to people's problems. In the case of pharmacy, the problem is illness and the solution is an appropriate dosage of medicine. However, Dr. Elmore recognizes that Big Pharma completely disregards ethics, opting to take advantage of vulnerable people and their wallets. Despite everything we covered in the episode, there is so much more to Dr. Lindsey Elmore that we didn't get a chance to explore. To delve deeper into her discoveries on essential oils, be sure to read her book Essentials: 75 Answers to Common Questions about Essential Oils and Supplements. Additionally, Dr. Elmore is the creator of the Clean Slate Cleanse, a gluten-free and vegan food course, and she is the founder of Brand Strategies Lab, a business strategy company for entrepreneurs and companies. To top it off, Dr. Elmore also hosts The Lindsey Elmore Show, a podcast that combines her niches into the overarching idea of health.

Java Chat - The Immunity Code - Joel Green shares insights to REAL nutrition
Joel Green - The Immunity Code No this isn't some "secret code" It's a code that is simple to crack once you understand it. Nutrition has always been elusive to us. We've all heard of the latest greatest trend, fad, diet etc. All of them have worked in one way or another. That said, there isn't a "one size fits all" that works for everyone. That's because we're all unique in our own way.  One thing though that has shown itself well is that if our digestive systems aren't working right, we end up getting sick with some kind of disease. Health becomes elusive and all of the side effects of bad health begin to show up.    From weight gain to more serious illnesses like diabetes and cancer, having an unbalanced system can only make it harder to live a fulfilling healthy life.    Joel Green, author and system designer for VEEP Nutrition comes and shares expertise on what the issues may be that are affecting your health from the very basic to digging into gut health and how it affects YOUR daily life.    You can find Joel Green via his websites:   or on his social:   LinkedIn URL   Facebook URL   Instagram   Credits: Intro to Java Chat - "Who Wants Cawfee?" by Vic Dibitetto "Ticked off Vic" Grab a pound of Cawfee today!
