Open Skies with Niloofar Rahmani
Open Skies: My Life as Afghanistan's First Female Pilot by Niloofar Rahmani and Adam Sikes Publisher: Chicago Review Press (July 6, 2021) The true story of Niloofar Rahmani and her determination to become Afghanistan's first female air force pilot In 2010, for the first time since the Soviets, Afghanistan allowed women to join the armed forces, and Niloofar entered Afghanistan's military academy. Niloofar had to break through social barriers to demonstrate confidence, leadership, and decisiveness—essential qualities for a combat pilot. Niloofar performed the first solo flight of her class—ahead of all her male classmates—and in 2013 became Afghanistan's first female fixed-wing air force pilot. The US State Department honored Niloofar with the International Women of Courage Award and brought her to the United States to meet Michelle Obama and fly with the US Navy's Blue Angels. But when she returned to Kabul, the danger to her and her family had increased significantly. Rahmani and her family are portraits of the resiliency of refugees and the accomplishments they can reach when afforded opportunities.

GOD or Coincidence with Rob Ekno
Rob Ekno's award-winning broadcasting career came to a crashing halt at the effects of drugs and alcohol, and he became homeless and hopeless. Fortunately, Rob was able to fight off his demons long enough to begin his journey of sobriety on November 29, 1992. Not long after, Rob moved from the East Coast to Los Angeles. There his career was reignited when he became a national TV host--a career that lasted nearly 15 years. He also spent four seasons on the NBC sitcom Newsradio and had a role on Phil Hartman's last show. Rob's attempt to rekindle his dwindling relationship with God took an abrupt turn backwards after a brief, yet scary, encounter--an incident that led Rob to walk away from God for nearly a decade. However, following a miraculous meeting with his future wife, Rob began to experience a continual stream of "coincidental" circumstances, which ultimately led him to acknowledge that a "Master Architect" surely was at work in all these improbable synchronicities. Again refocused on God, Rob produced and hosted the spiritually based internet radio show In Your Face, heard weekdays for more than three years in nearly 100 countries. Rob also wrote his first book God, Bless America...Before It's Too Late. His testimony aired on The 700 Club, Hour of Power, and a host of other media outlets. Rob's incredible passion when sharing his life's stories has been enjoyed by audiences at live events for nearly three decades. After his marriage ended, Rob headed to Alaska to begin the next chapter in his life. He spent much of the next five years there and had incredible experiences while exploring ice caves, mushing with sled dogs, flying in helicopters and floatplanes, ziplining, and whale watching. Rob quickly gained vast knowledge of Alaska's ecosystem. In 2017, he put that wisdom to use as the cruise host on a private ship traveling throughout southeast Alaska, as well as the Columbia and Snake Rivers in Washington and Oregon. Rob created presentations giving guests an insider's look at the area's wildlife and places of interest. In October of 2018, Rob survived a devastating fall into an unsecured open hatch on the cruise ship. His left leg was severely injured. Receiving no medical help, Rob spent two hours lying with a towel and a belt wrapped around his leg. The impact from the fall also induced several other injuries, including Rob's arms, shoulders, and neck. As of this writing, nearly two years later, after multiple surgeries, visits to specialists, physical therapists, and more, Rob continues to receive treatment, and heal from his injuries.

Karen has been on a Heroine's Journey from being too busy and overwhelmed to loving the life she has while she creates and co-creates the life of her dreams.  In her personal life, she has enjoyed good health for her age, long and happy marriage to Andy over 3 decades, and 2 healthy, well-established kids.  Yet there never seemed to be enough time or money.  She felt as though there was something more that was hers to do.  Busy had become a competitive arena, a badge of honor.  What she found is the only one truly stopping Karen was Karen.  She learned how to "flip" time to focus on meaningful activities and work.  If she can do it, you can too!  Her most recent book, FLIP TIME /  LOVE LIFE is based on this Heroine's Journey.

From the Pit to the Palace with Genesis Amaris Kemp
Genesis is a Creative Content Writer, Author, Self-Development Advocate, Visionary, Inclusion, and Diversity enthusiast, and a Firecracker a force to be reckoned with. As a woman of color who said, “Enough is enough,” and is now bolder than ever. She tried to remain quiet, but that didn’t work because no change occurred.

She sees herself as a visionary and a woman who will go on to do great things that empower others to speak up for themselves. Yes, it may be hard; yes, it may hurt. In the long run, she desires to encourage others to help those who may not have a voice. She is a trailblazer who wants others to live out their dreams, goals, and visions. If it takes her writing this book to accomplish those tasks, then so be it. We all have been given a wonderful purpose in life. It is up to us to walk it out and live victoriously!

Don't Settle on Norms with Noa Ronen
Hey there. My name is Noa (no h here - it is the #1 baby girls' name in Israel) Ronen, I am a. vlogger, disruptor, and coffee lover. I am also a speaker, author, and leadership coach and my focus is on social leaders - people who want to create an impact in this world that is BEYOND money. When you hear me you will probably hear my accent first, my love for coffee second, and my passion to have real conversations that challenge me and the norms third. This is why I enjoy being a podcast guest so much. It honestly brings me joy to have a REAL conversation with you while still encouraging the audience to think outside the box. To challenge their way of thinking. To ask themselves, am I stuck with only two options when there is actually a third and fourth way to look at where I am and my approach to the solution? Yes, I am a speaker, yes I wrote a book about BEyond Leadership and the journey from Awareless to AwarenNess (with some AwareMess) that incorporate; How my relocation experience impacted my life, the messiness of being stuck for five years, and why we are stuck with what I call: the illusion of awareness. I love to explain why I believe it is so important to move from doing business, life, or leadership to being leaders in everything we do so we can see new results –– I call this BEyond Leadership. Nevertheless, my WHY is to share my REAL messy story because I see so many people who struggle and stop believing in themselves. I want to remind your audience that maybe it is not about getting from point A to point B, that maybe there is a point C along the way.

To The Moon and Back with Lisa Kohn
Lisa had a weird childhood. Some would say tough. My memoir, to the moon and back: a childhood under the influence, was published in 2018. My goal is to spread a message of hope, self-love, and self-compassion with the book. I describe my childhood in this way: “The best seats I ever had at Madison Square Garden were at my mother’s wedding, and the best cocaine I ever had was from my father’s friend, the judge.” Basically, I grew up in a religious cult (the Moonies) with my mom and a life of “sex, drugs, and squalor” with my dad. I know that while my story is unique – only my brother has a similar childhood – the “scars” I have are unfortunately too common.  Low or no self-esteem, self-criticism, self-loathing, and lambasting are, again, all too common. This is why I hope to spread a message of self-love. You can read more about my book and life at I also own a leadership consulting and executive coaching firm which focuses on Thoughtful Leadership – being present, intentional, and authentic.

Tap into Your Intuition with Terri Jay
Terri Jay enjoys a solid reputation as an intuitive, medium, and animal communicator. She is also renowned as a medical and veterinary intuitive. She regularly talks to people and pets who have passed in the course of her work, particularly when helping people deal with the loss of a loved one. Along with her work on the “other side,” Terri also works with people who have communication disorders such as autism, Alzheimer’s, traumatic brain injuries, people who are comatose, and babies who have just not yet learned to talk. She is adept at remote viewing and sensing and her readings produce amazing results and incredible details.   A native of Cleveland, Ohio, she remembers being drawn to horses at an early age. She began riding lessons and by age 16, she was showing horses on a Class A circuit as a junior rider and also taught riding locally. She went on to attend Ohio State University where she studied Animal Science. By the mid1970s, Terri had moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, where she started a free, horseback therapy program for disabled children. In 1985, she moved to Reno to become the first Executive Director of the Nevada Commission for the Preservation of Wild Horses, a position she held until 1990 when she decided once again to offer a horseback therapy program.  It was during this time that she discovered her gift for telepathic communication with disabled children that soon grew to include horses and other animals. Terri has always been in front of the media spotlight for her therapeutic riding program, which received local and national coverage.  During her stint with the Wild Horse Commission, she was featured in an episode of "Unsolved Mysteries" about the killing of hundreds of wild horses in Nevada. She went on to appear on countless television news shows for her intuitive work, in national and international magazines and newspapers, and on the TV series "Texas Justice" as an expert witness. Terri enjoys a full-time career in providing readings by phone and in person and doing workshops around the country. She has also had successful shows at local casinos. She much rather enjoys the area of animal and non-verbal human communication and she specializes in communicating with world-class competition horses. Terri is presently working on pitching a television show which will demonstrate her incredible abilities. Terri currently resides in Carson Valley, Nevada with her husband, Haflinger horses, and two dogs.  Her book, “The Cowgirl Shaman Way – Seven Easy Steps to Develop Your Intuitive Ability,” is available on Amazon.

Individual Spiritual Perfection with Sankarshan Das
Sankarshan Das was a popular singer/songwriter during the hippie era who after sharing the stage in 1969 with the Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead became in 1970 a musical sensation with his daily concerts at the University of  Texas.  Seeking spiritual perfection in 1971 he became a Hare Krishna monk and is now a spiritual master with tens of thousands of disciples and students all over the world.  His song, "The Peace Formula," was very much by Barack Obama when Obama was the US President.

Keeping It Real with August Willams
August started doing her own hair around age 7 because her mother wasn’t able to keep up – time, money other kids! As a teenager, she didn’t have the body type that was in style but always felt beautiful. Participation in her church community helped her understand she was blessed to be created this way. She took on purpose with those teachings. Instead of wearing what was in fashion, she sought out clothes and makeup that emphasized HER strengths. When August became a model, she realized she did a better job emphasizing what made her beautiful with makeup than the artists who just did the same look for everyone. Highlighting what made me her, transformed her into a simple-glamour girl. For the past 9 years, she has been a Freelance Professional Make-Up Artist & Entrepreneur! As her beauty and social worlds collided, she watched them struggle in people's eyes as they posted selfies. Their captions said what they wanted people to believe about them, but she discerned immediately they didn’t feel that way inside. They were just trying to be what they thought the world and media wanted them to be and were losing themselves in the process. All of her years in the Beauty Industry had taught her you can’t chase beauty because styles and trends are always going to change. The best thing to do is to accept your reality and highlight your strengths. Now a Wife, Mother of 4, and a Successful Business Women! August sees true beauty in people, but I am called to help them see it in themselves!
