Natalie Alexia

I am a Strategic Consultant and Conscious Coach.

Creator of worldwide movement Love is the True Black which saw her partner with the United Nations on international day of Peace and create a viral social media campaign engaging over 1.6million people globally.

I have worked as an entrepreneur for the last 17 years. I have a lifelong passion for business, human potential and behavioral psychology.

I help creative business people like you align your resources to create GROWTH. I work with passionate entrepreneurs and executives to define purpose and create a next step pragmatic approach to achievement of your objectives.

I work with forward thinking businesses, through custom designed Leadership Development Programs to facilitate building authentic leadership, creating sustainable change throughout your organization. I specialize in the ideation of additional revenue streams.

Born insatiably curious my gift in business is seeing patterns where others see complexity. I believe that we are all connected and that deep down we desire to be a part of something larger than ourselves, there’s nothing that get’s me as excited as working on projects big or small that have the capacity to impact humanity in a positive way.

Ultimately our success is not measured on what we say or what we think but on our actions. I love co-creating action plans to move towards a future that aligns with the truth of who you are as an individual or a business.

My transformational work was born out of my own hands on experience of how to succeed in life and business. This work centers around strategic business and personal development, coaching, training and I have been honored to be invited to speak to audiences about these passions all around the globe.

My working life began in the UK music industry, then I moved into design and project management. I have lived all over the world, 6 countries 3 continents and counting, I speak 3 languages, love the color RED and cackle loudly at irreverent jokes.

When I’m not doing all this… you’ll find me hanging out with my 3 beautiful (no longer little) children, dancing in my kitchen, leading women’s masterminds, meditating, kickboxing or studying spirituality just for kicks.

Hi. I’m Garrett Swann, Santa Barbara native, a now New Yorker, full time realist, a gym rat, a go-getter and a wannabe millennial. Obsessed with great convos over coffee, I spend my days influencing the younger generations with my personal style, poise and panache.

A role model (pun intended) and GQ Insider, I’ve traveled the world as a model in campaigns for Allen Edmonds, Bergdorfs x The Woolmark Company, Billionaire (Phillipe Plein) Bombas, Brooks Brothers, Michael Kors, Chrysler, Dodge, hims, Indochino, Institchu, Loews Hotels, Moscot, Mr. Turk, SLH Hotels, 2xist Underwear, among others.

A couple years ago, I laughed when I made the “Silverfox” lists for Buzzfeed, Huffpost and OUT Magazine. I’m guessing #daddyisthenewblack. Now that I’ve accomplished that, I decided to evolve my social media platform including my IGTV production UNDERCOVERS, interviewing people I am fascinated I’m with “in bed.”

I am also a CMO of a start-up apparel brand called ALPHX in New York City, former star of several TV shows (Fashion House, Unusually Thicke) and questionable indie films (The Casserole Club), and my motto in life is “have swimsuit, will travel.”

Gary Rogers

Gary Rogers was born and grew to adulthood in small town on the Texas Gulf Coast . He was blessed to be raised by an extraordinary Father and loving Mother – and he thought it was all so normal. However, he would eventually learn that far too many were deprived of the childhood they deserve.

As a young man he left College and went to live in the inner city of Brooklyn NY. There he came face to face with the ravages of poverty and the crime, drugs, and violence that poverty begets. He observed the damage that ensues when children are deprived of the love and protection of a father.

After 45 years of marriage and the raising of 3 amazing children, he would become convinced that he had the responsibility to share what he had been given with those who were denied a healthy relationship with a father. It is that thought that was the genesis of his writing and speaking career.

In his writings, he seeks to share his rich life experiences for the benefit of everyone. The blessing of family, the experiences of life, and the hard times he has walked through have all blended to forge a perspective which he shares with his readers. His is a perspective that views the difficult seasons of life as positive, transformative events.

He has a passion to inspire authenticity in men, equip women and men with workable life skills, and enable a healthy culture of fatherhood. He is inspired to empower modern men to become respected, valued, and authentically masculine and to demonstrate how society will benefit when they do.

Deepa graduated as a medical doctor from Manchester University in the United Kingdom. Coming from a traditional conservative immigrant family, she faced significant challenges in obtaining her professional status. She trained as a family physician but also obtained more qualifications in obstetrics, gynecology and pediatrics. 

In addition to being a physician, she is well-known for being an entrepreneur. Her business activities have ranged from family practice, cosmetic clinics, both residential and commercial real estate, public speaking, medical journalism and business consulting. She has been very involved in physician recruitment and has recruited many doctors to Cambridge and Kitchener. To that end, she was awarded the Women of Waterloo WOW award. Not only was she the first to establish a cosmetic clinic in Cambridge, but for 12 consecutive years, it has been rated as the Fan Favorite by the Readers Choice awards.

In addition to her business interests, Dr. Takhar has been involved with significant charitable ventures. She has served on the board for the Women’s Crisis Services in Cambridge and continues to be a supporter. Having experienced domestic violence herself and some challenges specific to her status as a visible immigrant, she holds these causes close to her heart. She has raised her children as a single parent and has a great deal of empathy with the challenges single parenthood brings.

Her passion for medicine has given her the ability to develop relationships with her clients and to help her learn the client’s needs to help them gain their desired results.

Future endeavors include increasing her involvement in teaching and training as well doing research on anti aging medicine. She is currently interested in the role of medical cannabis and other holistic products in skin care and overall wellness. 

With Covid-19 world wide pandemic , the Ministry of health reduced some of the restrictions around providing virtual care for family medicine in Ontario. With this in mind she launched VirtualMD, an Ontario wide virtual medical practice to serve family practice needs. This is a rapidly growing scale able medical service that will transform how health care is delivered. Currently it has piloted in Ontario and has had tremendous growth. The future involves partnering  with other health service providers to become Canada’s premier virtual medical centre.

After reaching extreme burnout, Denise left the business, sold her suburban house and moved across the country to San Diego, where she dove headfirst into personal development and into rediscovering what was REALLY important to her.

Once she found a way to reconnect to what brought her joy, and work through what held her back from living her purpose, Denise KNEW she had to help others do the same.

Today, she teaches women to make unapologetically authentic decisions and clear their mental blocks to create happy, fulfilling lives through her practice, The Firefly Moment.

Alisa Wilcox

I started my company in 2010 after deciding that I didn't want so spend my days peering out a window from my cubicle, wishing for days spent traveling, discovering new adventures and using my passions to create a company that lit me up and made me money.  Was that even possible?  YEP! 

As a Social Media consultant, I was designing and managing Social Media for small-med sized companies in 2010.  And it was awesome. I worked remotely, chose my clients carefully and finally felt free.  But something was missing...

I LOVED my company, but it lacked systems.  And it also lacked MAJOR revenue streams.  I knew I was leaving money on the table, but I didn't know how to figure out how to automate my systems and how to increase the revenue without burning out or adding more hours to my work day.  

So, after spending time with a Coach and implementing UBER POWERFUL AUTOMATED systems into my business, I expanded the scope of my offerings. I had helped over 100 companies create insanely powerful Social Media strategies, and the time for me to scale WAY UP had come.    

And that's exactly what I did.  I took my company and made it bigger and made it way more fun.  I went from managing Social Media for companies to teaching entrepreneurs how to work less and make way more with the exact systems I was using.  

My business allows me freedom to work from my favorite cafes, indulge in last minute travel and also to spend as much time as I want with my loved ones.  My days of sitting in a cubicle getting my fluorescent lighting tan on are wayyyyyy over and now I help business owners take advantage of technology to create more time, space and freedom in their lives.  

Sitting on the beach watching payments come in on your phone with a company you LOVE is a real thing.

Jay Rooke

Jay Rooke is a business and personal development coach based in Sonoma, California.

He's an idea guy. He's crazy creative, woo-woo and spiritual, but grounded in practical solutions. Think East Coast pragmatic meets West Coast progressive.

Jay's "why" is that he always wanted to follow his passion to be an entrepreneur, so a decade ago he opened a restaurant, which quickly turned into an “involuntary non-profit” and he lost everything. While the experience nearly killed him, it inspired his evolution to serve first-time entrepreneurs by helping them launch their businesses without losing their savings and sanity.

Jay is the host of Know Pain, Know Gain—Entrepreneurship Made Real, a podcast and nationally syndicated radio show. His clients are often "spiritually curious" business owners pursuing their entrepreneurial journeys in search of personal fulfillment. They retain Jay to help them HARMONIZE their business growth, personal development and spiritual evolution.

When she restarted her yoga practice after a brief hiatus, she noticed that she was becoming a more patient mom. She knew there was something special there, and felt the call to train as a yoga teacher. She built a thriving business teaching private and corporate yoga and fitness, and found home within herself in the process.

She was inspired to help other women experience the same transformation, and that is how Finding Home Within was born!

Sarah Hines

I met a man one blurry night in Manhattan, and little did I know, he would be the soil in which my passion for grief work was to be planted.  He had been rejected by his family for his life choices and was preparing for death without them. Helping him through his struggle to come to terms with his love for them and in turn his forgiveness while going through treatments, rejection, and coming to terms with his own death and grief was an unimaginable amount of stress and it literally set me in activism mode. 

 It was shortly after his death, I completed training in Palliative Care Home Hospice. I volunteered in men’s homes for 5 years before the medications became reliable and being gay wasn’t always breaking family ties.  Some of the most amazing times I have had in my life have been in the homes of dying. Strange, yes.. but so beautifully honest and raw.

 I then completed the Children’s Palliative Care Training and dove into the heartbrokenness of dying children.  It is in these years I really came to understand just how fickle death can be and how important it is to embrace death and learn to live with our grief.  It seems that in times of what we would consider the most unimaginable, we are able to find glimmers of beauty, cracks of light and the nourishment in tears. 

 Over the last 20 years, I have carried on with my education in a variety of ways including Coach and Leadership Training, Orphan Wisdom School and Grief Groups.  My connection to corporate grief has been slow, as is expected.  I am grateful for my individual clients who inspire me everyday with their courage and their vulnerability and their willingness.

I had an interesting upbringing, my Dad is a relatively well known lawyer in South-Southwest Baltimore. My Mom was heroin addict my entire life. Although my Dad was well known he worked for a non-profit organization and therefore he never made much money. As for my Mom, from the time I was 8 or 9 I was felt like more of a parent with her than a child. Due to my Mom's problems I grew up with my Dad, spending weekends and summers at my Mom's house.

My Dad worked a lot so I spent much of my time on my own or with my Grandparents. All in all although I grew up surrounded by crime and drug use I was luck enough to have safe places with my Grandparents and my Father. My Grandfather was a cop and his house was a no nonsense zone. Even in my nexus of peace I watched many of my friends turn to the streets and drug use.

At one point I almost turned that way myself; if it wasn't for the words of one key friend. Still I saw a lot of violence that had a profound affect on me. Along with the pain of watching my Mother, an extremely intelligent woman, destroy herself; I decided I never wanted to add to the pain of the world. I didn't know what I wanted to do, but I wanted to help people.

There the story gets long and muddy, but I ended having multiple college majors only to up and join the Marine Corp. Reserves just before graduation.

Afterward I found my calling as a personal trainer, specializing in pain relief therapy. I now run, Upcoming Wellness, a complete wellness company that teaches, Mental, Emotional, Spiritual & Physical Wellness.

Dan Meinerz

Dan is Fascial Stretch Specialist and initiated Shaman with a background in fitness, energetic work, and personal growth.  As a high school and collegiate athlete, he sustained  a number of injuries that led him to suffering physical limitations that kept him from staying active in his mid-20’s.  Suffering from chronic pain and discomfort at such a young age, he underwent many forms of treatments and therapy, none of which made a significant shift for him until he discovered Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST).

After experiencing a major break-thru with eliminating pain in his body, a number of synchronicities aligned for Dan that led him to leaving his corporate job in his early 30's and choosing a career path of health and wellness.  As Shamanic Practitioner, he brings an awareness and intention to the mind / body connection as it relates to a holistic approach to healing.  Dan states that “At the root of any pain or trauma, there is a story about how and why it shows up in the body.  It’s my job to ask my clients questions and discover the source of their pain and discomfort to ultimately get them back to living the life they want for themselves.”

Omar Espinoza

"Omar is an Elementary School teacher who made it his life’s mission to make video creating accessible to everyone.

As a student who took English as a Second Language (ESL) classes in elementary, reading and writing were a challenge for him. It was because of this experience that he disliked reading and writing, and only did enough to “get by.” When he became a teacher, he knew he wanted to change the way English was taught so his students would not go through the same experiences he did.

Looking back at his childhood before the start of his second year, he realized that the funny videos he was making were actually developing his literacy skills. He noticed that figurative language and high academic vocabulary were highly used in his videos. So he decided to bring in the joy of making videos to his classroom.

With this new Project Based Learning style, not only is he developing literacy skills in his students, but also fostering each student’s socio-emotional skills. At first, he received a lot of criticism for using social media platforms for teaching, with a common “reason” being that “It’s not for educational purposes.”

Today, he is an elementary school teacher who has successfully facilitated two Cleveland School Film Festivals, and continues to mentor students through the art of Film.

Omar has also spoken at the California Association for the Gifted (CAG) conference, and recently launched his free filmmaking website full of tutorials and video challenges for students to partake in."

Kristen is also a certified Integrative Health Coach and spent many years learning about wellness, relationships, and personal development to understand the role they play in our everyday lives. What differentiates her from other mediums is her ability to support her clients with the implementation of the information they receive from the readings to help them improve all areas of their lives. 

While trying to comprehend what motivates some to move forward while others stay where they are comfortable, Kristen has challenged herself to enjoy being uncomfortable in many areas of her life.  From managing comedians and being 1st runner-up at the Miss Ohio, America pageant to completing a full marathon having never run a mile before training, she loves to inspire and show others anything is possible, it just takes desire, belief and action. 

Kristen became interested in personal development when she realized law was not for her and thought, “There has to be more to life than this”.  Little did she know that the more she would discover was a gift for talking to dead people and a passion for transforming the lives of their loved ones.

Entrepreneurs hire me to skyrocket their engagement, because most feel like they’re shouting into a black hole, or they’re a carbon copy of everyone else, and they can’t get traction online to save their lives. So I create epic engagement experiences that make people click that button, connect with you, and convert like crazy. Bottom line, I’m on a mission to motivate a million people to join the engagement marketing revolution.or.

Abdi Nor Iftin

When the civil war in Somalia began, Abdi Nor Iftin was five; he and his brother became the sole providers for the family while they also attended a madrassa. Amidst the daily shelling and the famine, Abdi had one escape: American movies and music. At neighborhood showings of Rambo, Commando, and The Terminator, Abdi learned of America, and taught himself English, and began to dream of a life in the United States.

In his memoir Call Me American, Iftin recounts his harrowing, extraordinary, and uplifting story. His love of western culture and music earned him the name “Abdi American.” This became a liability when Islamic extremism took hold of Somalia. Evading conscription by al-Shabaab while secretly filing stories for NPR under penalty of death, he stayed in Somalia until he had no choice but to flee. He smuggled himself into Kenya, where a different but grinding life of hopelessness awaited. He spent days hiding silently in an apartment from raids by Kenyan police, once passing time reading memoirs and watching more movies. And then, a stroke of incredible luck: he won the Diversity Visa Lottery.

Now a proud and legal resident of Maine, Abdi is advocating for the refugee rights he is also a community navigator. He’s on the advising council for Refugee International with some of America’s most distinguished diplomats and prominent international human rights leaders. Abdi was a TexdAmoskeag 2019 speaker.

On January 17th 2020, Abdi’s long life dream came true after he was sworn in as a naturalized American citizen in Portland, Maine. For the first ever, Abdi is voting in the US elections and exercising his American rights, one which many Americans take for granted. But for Abdi it is liberating to have a voice in America.

Today’s America and the travel/immigration ban worry Abdi, a Muslim, a former refugee and a displaced person. Abdi’s dramatic, deeply stirring memoir is truly a story for our time: a vivid portrait of the desperation refugees seek to escape and a reminder of why western democracies still beckon to those looking to make a better life.

I am a mother, wife and business process literate, UC Berkeley Certified Executive Coach and consultant but, more importantly, I am ready to be your success partner.

People and processes are at the heart of the work I have done for the past 20+ years. Whether working in a corporation, large law firm or entrepreneurial environment, I have seen the value of meeting people where they are, of frankly and honestly assessing process and of making smart changes openly and deliberately.

I excel at helping people with a lot going on to cut through the ephemera and to get to the core of the matter. My ability to connect disparate dots to provide meaning and insight makes me uniquely able to help my clients get to what is important so they can live happier and easier lives.

I am a graduate of Wellesley College and Georgetown University Law Center and a member of the Maryland and DC Bars.

I have worked both as a litigator and administrator in large law firms. I have managed hundreds of people in complex, high-stakes and high-stress environments and have seen first hand the impact of having the right people, in the right process at the right time. More recently, I was the Chief Operating Office of an entrepreneurial investment firm. Because I have experience in both large and small organizations, I have a unique perspective on how smaller organizations can grown more efficiently and professionally.

Now, I have taken my experience and passion for enabling success and I work with people like you - individuals and companies looking to the future. I’d love to talk about what we can achieve together

I am also life-long learner and am currently working towards my LLM in Taxation from Georgetown University Law Center.

When I’m not working with people, you can find me most often in a basketball gym cheering from the stands or curled up with a book.
