I am an author and spiritual life coach.

Jaime is an avid hockey fan. He loves the competitive spirit and the team aspect of the game. He enjoys the sport so much that he decided to integrate his passion for the sport into his passion for marketing. Jaime has been working in the sales and marketing arena since he left the US Army as a paratrooper for the 82nd Airborn Division in 1994.
Working for three different fortune 100 companies, Jaime learned quickly how to build relationships. The challenging aspect of working for a large company was having the ability to be creative. This is the main reason he went out on his own and started his own business. His first business was as a partner in a small California-based real estate advertising agency and publishing company. After the housing bubble burst in 2008, Jaime had to start over.
As time progressed, Jaime found that he really enjoyed making websites for people and so he started Slapshot Studio in 2013 and never looked back. Jaime enjoys traveling, boating, playing guitar, hanging out with family, and playing hockey.
Pamela Burke grew up as a DK - a deacon's kid. She was not like horror story DK's or Pks - a preacher's kid - who did completely the opposite of their parents. She was, however, obediently rebellious. That meant Pam respected her parents, did what her elders told her to do, and respected authority, but if she felt contrary to them she put her foot down and did what she wanted to do how she wanted to do it.
Pam took the same approach to losing weight. While some in the weight loss industry and food industry make it their mission to sell consumers on quick fixes, losing weight fast without exercising plans, and fooling people into believing that sugar laden food products are healthy by plopping words like "All natural", "Low fat", or "Organic" on the package, Pam refused to fall prey to such misleading tactics.
She lost a significant amount of weight being obediently rebellious. She rebuked the notion of quick fixes and false advertisement while being obedient to making losing weight a priority in her life. Pam did it by being consistent, being an informed consumer, and understanding why she gained weight in the first place.
Pam uses her experiences and knowledge to help others follow the same path. She shares what she knows via her blog, canwilldone.com, a website dedicated to sharing advice on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle and helping people change their mind, attitude, way of life, and body. Pam strives to get people to live a can-do attitude in every area of their lives, thus allowing them to change their self-doubts, fears, circumstances, and struggles into positive opportunities.
Pam is also a speaker. She speaks on topics such as creating opportunities, changing mindsets, and living a healthy lifestyle, and to parents and students about the messages they are missing related to attending college. In addition to speaking to young people about college and education, she also serves as a mentor and provides scholarships to college students.
For the record, Pam does all of the above as her side hustle. She has worked in corporate America for twenty-five years. Always willing to sit on a panel or speak on creating opportunities with work colleagues, she has been graced with the unofficial title of “Good Corporate Citizen.” Her daily functions also include helping others, but by way of helping technically with devising more efficient processes and providing data solutions.
My passion has always been meeting people from all walks of life. I love to travel,i love history. So I finally decided to bring my skills and passions together by becoming a certified Tour Guide.

I was born in Texas and raised in Arkansas. I graduated from The University of Arkansas with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. I met my wife, Natalie, while in college. After graduation, we decided to move to Nashville and married shortly after in 2001. We bought a house, started a family, and are thrilled to be raising our three sons, Bryce, Graham, and Hudson, in the middle Tennessee area.
After several years in the transportation industry, I gained invaluable experience in negotiating, sales, operations, process improvement, analysis, management, technology and many other assets. That experience helped me gain the knowledge and skills to successfully navigate sellers and buyers through real estate transactions. I chose to pursue real estate because it offered personal interactions and the opportunity to help other families in one of the biggest decisions of their life.
I truly love what I do! I have always claimed that I do not stress easily. Buying and selling can be a stressful time for many. I believe real estate can be fun and that laughter is a healthy antidote for stress. As an agent, I strive for a healthy balance between having fun and being serious. This is one reason I believe my clients enjoy working with me. I look forward to working for you in the near future!

I was born and raised in Ohio, but living in Chicago for the past 20 years. I fell into a career in corporate technology sales and operations, but it was never my passion. A year and a half ago, I was laid off from my corporate job and made the decision to take some time off to really seek out what my next move should be. While taking time off, I also made the decision to “get healthy” when I found myself as an alcoholic and up 40 pounds. I had heard about Isagenix nutrition and weight loss products through a friend and fell in love with the products and lost 40 pounds in 4 months and also began attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. During my 6 months off, I began watching the Isagenix Facebook business page and seeing one person in particular who was more in love with her life and her job than anyone I had ever met, and she was earning multiple 6-figure income, so I made an introduction and started inquiring about Network Marketing. That was almost exactly one year ago, and I’ve been building my own Isagenix business full-time ever since. After meeting her in person at an event, I asked her to mentor me, which led to me packing up my life in Chicago and moving it to Fayetteville, NC so that I could work and train with her. Leaving my lackluster job in corporate america to pursue building a business of my own that allows me to work from anywhere and that has unlimited income potential has been the best decision of my life thus far!

Hatim, author of "Chief Complaint: A Country Doctor’s Tales of Life in Galilee," was born in the Palestinian village of Arrabeh at the height of the Palestinians’ first nationwide intifada (the 1936-39 uprising against the British). He left Arrabeh in 1960 to study in the United States, earning degrees in medicine and public health from Harvard University. After returning home, he assumed the responsibility of sub-district physician heading the region’s governmental health office, while continuing to reside in his ancestral village. As the first and only resident physician in a rural area of more than 50,000 Palestinian citizens of Israel, he has been forced to double up as their medical caregiver, operating a solo GP practice during evening hours.
Hatim's attempts to make a significant contribution to his community’s health and wellbeing met with neglect and refusal from Israel’s central authority. He worked with colleagues to establish a non-governmental organization, The Galilee Society for Health Research and Services, and to lead its efforts as one of the first NGOs in the Palestinian community in Israel. This activity put him in direct opposition to his employers, leading to his forced departure from the Ministry of Health. The Galilee Society later spawned other major Arab NGOs in Israel, including Adalah and Ittijah. It continues to contribute significantly to addressing the special health issues of its target population to this day. Hatim's civil society efforts are documented in his previous book, "A Doctor in Galilee: The Life and Struggle of a Palestinian in Israel" (Pluto Press, 2008). He blogs at "A Doctor in Galilee."
