Hi, I'm Hilory Wallk and I want to create a custom roadmap for you to bring massive success in life and business into your life through a blend of Chinese Metaphysics and life coaching. My goal is to help you avoid costly missteps (hiring the wrong coach or mentor, launching your business at the wrong time, joint venturing with the wrong partner, etc.), heartbreak (falling too quickly for the 'player' you met while online dating, or worse, marrying the wrong man), and wasted dollars and years in pursuit of your happiness (quitting your job to become a solopreneur when your chart shows that you will not succeed without a partner or a well-crafted team, taking actions that knock you out of alignment with your purpose either for money or due to fear or lack) and instead reveal your Lifestyle by Design via your unique GPS. You CAN deliberately shape your life if you recognize and address your weaknesses, enhance your strengths, maximize your favorable luck cycles, proactively prepare for the challenging times, choose the right romantic and business partners, and so much more....

My career as an attorney prepared me well for the years of rigorous study to learn this ancient craft, and to apply it strategically to your unique and modern needs. I called my business "Soul Centered Feng Shui" for a specific reason: to provide support and guidance to optimize your use of the custom roadmap to realize your soul purpose in life (your unique raison d'etre, 'reason for being'). When you live your life in a way that satisfies the deepest needs of your soul and expands your destiny, true freedom will be yours. I'm your guide, your co-pilot, the one who holds the space for your biggest dreams — even (especially) those dreams that terrify you!

A year and half ago, Julie did not know anything about writing and publishing and now she is the Amazon bestselling self-published author of 'Easy Peasy Potty Training' and 'Easy Peasy Healthy Eating'.

 

She is currently writing her first children's picture book and in the middle of her first novel during National Novel Writing Month (NANOWRIMO) and is having a ton of fun! Mind you her day to day life is relatively dull - she gets excited when she gets a new tea towel out the drawer.

 

Julie had aspirations of being a writer since she was very young but somehow got sidetracked into the corporate world. After the birth of her first child, she rediscovered her creative side with a popular blog about her ride on the parenting rollercoaster at cherishmama.com."

Julie’s books provide simple and straightforward information on parenting topics so busy parents can avoid time taken up searching for often confusing and conflicting advice. They can then spend time with the beautiful tiny humans in their life and do what makes their hearts sing.

 

 

Julie lives with her family in a small, magnificent country at the bottom of the world where you may find her trying to bake the world’s best chocolate brownie.

Tonya created The Good Spirits Tour in order to honor the multiple volunteers and counselors, that came to her aid after losing her father to suicide in 2015. "When I recognized that the people that were giving me so much of their time, love and expertise were all volunteers, it really warmed my heart. I knew they had my back but couldn't help but wonder who had theirs", said Tonya.

Lisa Braithwaite started performing at the tender age of three when, confronted by her mother about why there was Comet cleanser all over the bathroom, she responded, “Out, damn’d spot! Out, I say!” She’s been traumatized by bathrooms ever since.

Her background also includes playing a groovy Santa in a 1977 elementary school Christmas play and making her mother cry as Emily in the 8th grade production of “Our Town.” She occasionally won high school speech tournaments with her award-winning topic of “Brown Bag Lunches.” More recent achievements include faking her way through an interview for a Chicago Tribune article about faking public speaking.

But what’s most important is Lisa’s philosophy of public speaking: That it’s fun, that it’s an awesome way to express yourself creatively, and that passion and enthusiasm are worth more than a thousand techniques.

Also, that public speaking makes you richer, thinner, and better in bed, but you’ll have to read her blog to find out how!

(Now, if you still want all the boring credentials and what I’ve been doing for work for the past 20+ years, read on…)


Profile

School- and community-based training, education and public speaking experience since 1992

Theater performance background

Expertise in adult learning principles

Expertise in communication skills development

Expertise in program and curriculum development

Education

M.A. in Education, UC Santa Barbara

 Before starting her public speaking coaching business in 2005, Lisa Braithwaite, a Santa Barbara native and Cate School graduate, worked in the nonprofit sector in Santa Barbara for sixteen years, developing  and implementing programs, curricula, and training materials for local organizations. She has spoken to thousands of people, both youth and adults, on topics ranging from domestic violence and healthy relationships, to gender equity and Title IX, to public speaking and presentation skills.

Her entrepreneurial spirit led her to create new and innovative programs in each organization she worked for. In 1995, she created the first full-time teen relationship violence program in Santa Barbara County, for Domestic Violence Solutions for Santa Barbara County. In 1998, she developed a media literacy program for Girls Incorporated of Carpinteria, inspiring girls to be strong, smart and bold. In 2000, she joined the fledgling Morgan Foundation and established their domestic and international grant programs to provide computer and Internet access to poor communities and developing countries.

As Training Coordinator for Tri-Counties Regional Center, she led the team of staff and consultants in creating a new employee orientation program and a comprehensive training and education program using employees as trainers.

She is proud of her accomplishments with Body Electric, a nonprofit she co-founded in 1997 to promote participation, recognition and celebration of local women and girls in sports and physical activity.

In 2003, Lisa was honored for her work with Body Electric with the Louise Lowry Davis award, named for a local pioneer in women’s sports. The award is given annually by the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table to a person recognized as a player, coach or sponsor who excels in leadership and sportsmanship in the community.

Lisa is a graduate of Women’s Economic Ventures’ Self-Employment Training and continues to volunteer as a speaker in the program. In 2013, Lisa received WEV’s Santa Barbara CountyVolunteer of the Year award.

She has been interviewed for the Chicago TribuneL.A. TimesWall Street Journal, the Santa Barbara News PressMen’s Health Magazine and on Inc.com. Her blog, Speak Schmeak, is listed on Alltop.com as one of the top public speaking blogs on the Web.

Lisa resides in Santa Barbara with her husband and rescued kitty, TigerLiger.

Lynn DeBuhr Johnson has always had one foot out the door and a hand in the dirt. Even though she grew up in Minneapolis, she spent the majority of her time outside in the sun, as well as finding different ways to grow as many types of veggies in small garden plots as possible.

Her real health journey began when her oldest daughter was continually having upper respiratory infections. The pediatrician assured her this was normal, but that was not how Lynn felt. After doing research (and this was before Google), Lynn discovered holistic medicine. After only a month, her daughter no longer was sick, and the only time she gets sick is if she is eating junk food. All of Lynn's seven children were born with a midwife, and five of them were at home.

Although always studying on her own, Lynn also received her certification as a health coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in May 2010. She is also a current student in the Nutritional Endocrinology Practitioner Training program, as well as Evolutionary Herbalism.

From being a lazy teenager looking to have fun with his friends, I quickly became a motivated and dedicated entrepreneur. I started with my company JB Media Force and immediately began picking up small clients. I established an offshore team to handle the projects while I single-handedly took care of sales here in the United States. After building up the companies portfolio, I was able to take on bigger projects with bigger companies.

 

While this company was growing rapidly, it still did not seem to satisfy my hunger for something bigger. I decided to sell my first business and move on to some other ventures I was planning. I quickly began working on another project, which was known as StatFuse. This project was unique because it required a lot of work and featured an extremely innovative idea to help high school students around the nation. After months of hard work with my partner, we were able to successfully launch this company in February 2012.

 

I am proud to announce that as of 2017, we ended up selling our first tech startup StatFuse, which was acquired by LendEDU. Currently, I am working on launching a couple other online businesses and I’m partnered up with numerous entrepreneurs as we work on creating multimillion dollar companies.

 

In addition to this, I have made it a personal goal to help others find their purpose in life and achieve massive success. I have had the opportunity to share my messages on some of the biggest platforms in the world such as TEDx and now I’m looking to bring my message to everyone.

Tom Dowd, AKA Transformation Tom™, is a loving father of three beautiful daughters and a devoted husband from a small town in Maine. He is a graduate of the University of Delaware with a Communication degree, concentrating on interpersonal and organizational communication. Tom is a prize-winning speaker, an award-winning and Amazon best-selling author, trainer, coach, and radio host—all spurred by his need to be more than a painfully shy and introverted individual on a rollercoaster ride of success.

Tom is an active member in Toastmasters International, a group of 300,000+ members worldwide looking to develop communication and leadership skills. Tom joined in 2008 thinking it was just a way to boost his résumé. It became a wonderful downhill spiral of failure. Whether it was a speech contest or a publisher’s rejection, Toastmasters pushed him beyond his comfort zone to find selfawareness, belief that he could make a difference and the motivation to take smarter steps toward success both personally and professionally. What Tom found was a boost in confidence that changed the path of his life and career. In 2015, he was awarded the District 45 (D45) Division Governor of the Year, and in 2010- 2011, he was awarded the D45 Outstanding Toastmaster of the Year representing over 100 clubs in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and the three eastern most provinces of Canada. He achieved Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) status in 2015. Now exhibiting consistent speech contest success, Tom is the D45 Speech Evaluation Contest Champion (2015) and two-time Table Topics (Impromptu) D45 winner in 2012 and 2013. Additionally, he is a member of the National Speakers Association and the Global Speakers Federation.

With over 25 years of experience in the financial industry in management and leadership roles at the same organization and a plethora of inconsistency on this professional journey, Tom received the call nobody wanted: “We’re downsizing.” After unexpectedly losing his full-time job, Tom landed in a better place in just 59 days using methods from his coaching and training. He is now a VP at one of the larger financial institutions in North America. In 2011, he started his own side business “Thomas Dowd Professional Development & Coaching” where he continues to use the lessons learned on his climb up the corporate ladder to help people creatively find ways to differentiate themselves in the workplace and to find their own individual paths toward success. The mantra is “Transform into who you really want to be.” Tom is the award-winning author of three books. “The Transformation of a Doubting Thomas: Growing from a Cynic to a Professional in the Corporate World,” details Tom’s own professional growth based on lessons learned in his career, which received Honorable Mention at the 2012 New England Book Festival. “From Fear to Success: a Practical Public Speaking Guide” won the Gold Medal at the 2013 Axiom Business Book Awards in the Business Reference Category. His third book, derived from the unemployed stint, "Displacement Day: When My Job was Looking for a Job" was published in March 2014 and received Honorable Mention at the 2014 Paris and New York Book Festivals. Tom’s two most recent books “Time Management Manifesto: Expert Strategies to Create an Effective Work/Life Balance" and “The Unofficial Guide to Fatherhood” were released in October 2014 and April 2015 respectively. All are available in book and eBook versions, while “Fear” is also available as an audiobook.

The “Transformation Time with Transformation Tom” live radio program on BlogTalk Radio began in November 2014.

Catherine Basu is an ACE-Certified personal trainer with a secret: she grew up dreaming of ways to get out of gym class. Her grandfather, a physician, never gave in to her requests to write a doctor’s note that would get her out of P.E., but she’s grateful now for his integrity.  Her

years of toiling in gym, have made her a passionate ally of those who want to get in shape but feel uncomfortable in the gym environment.  Ultimately, it led to the creation of her company, Fit Armadillo®., whose mission is to help busy individuals find fitness they can enjoy at their own place and pace.

Armed with her B.S. Degree in Biology from The College of William and Mary, Catherine enjoys debunking fitness and nutrition myths to help her clients achieve lasting results and uncover the many benefits of an active lifestyle. Catherine has been quoted for her expertise in WebMD magazine, on Sparkpeople.com, LiveStrong.com, EmpowHER, Fitbie, and WorldLifestyle, and writes as a blogger for the Huffington Post.

Catherine has zero tolerance for diets, supplements, and detoxes (and not just because she’s a huge fan of gluten-full bread!), but lots of love for those new to fitness. An avid runner, she has competed in races from the 1500m to the full marathon, and loves helping others start a running routine.

While no longer a classroom teacher, Catherine enjoys using her Masters in Education from The University of Connecticut to promote literacy as a volunteer tutor in local schools.

 

Her first book, Superwomen Secrets Revealed: Successful Women Talk About Fitting in Fitness and Dare You to Join Them, will be published December 2016.

I use to say one day I am going to quit my job and do something with all of my talent being wasted away. And, one day I woke up tired of sitting behind a desk drinking the Corporate Kool-Aid.

First and foremost I consider myself a storyteller in the tradition of the cantadoras of the past, slyly hiding life lessons in stories filled with humor, irony and a look at the human condition through the eyes of a cosmic observer.

I've been writing since I was ten years old, a rebellious act against the teachers who only saw a little girl of some foreign origin and assumed that there was nothing of value there. 

My heart has always been in prose and poetry, the language that dances to the music of the soul. Because of its universal nature I have been drawn to travel indulging an insatiable curiosity about our common experience as human beings, lived differently yet still connected like drops in some universal ocean.

Ever since I can remember I have had extraordinary visions, daydreams and whispers coming to me from some unknown yet familiar place. We call that intuition today. I call that wisdom and it is my greatest gift. It took me years to embrace it and hold it lightly.

I've been called names, but not nasty ones. Warrior, sage, alchemist and poet are my favorites.

MY WORK IN THE WORLD

I've been on a spiritual quest my entire life seeking connection with the divine through Nature, sacred spaces, reflection and adventure. I'm fascinated by questions, not the obvious ones, but the ones that lie buried beneath the surface calling to be explored. I agree with Rilke when he said, 

"...be patient towards all that is unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves..." 

I am the one that loves the questions and have developed the fearlessness to ask them out loud. Everything I do is because of the questions I keep asking.

As an author and a writer I contribute my insights and share stories that inspire and connect. My stories awaken the longing within and replace it with the courage to act on your dreams. My first book, EveryDay Epiphanies: Insights for Living with Purpose is a series of essays and, of course, stories, based on client interactions and my own adventures exploring the world out there and reflecting on my world within. Manage Your Life Before Life Manages You: More Joy and Less Stress in 365 Days is a book full of daily inspirations and intentional practices that can be read while you have your morning coffee, starting your day with focus and inspiration. I am currently working on my third book, a memoir based on my adventures in Ecuador, titled The Shaman's Wife: A Story of Love and Self-Discovery. Stay tuned for that. If you're really curious, here is the Prologue and first chapter (unedited) of my work in progress.

As a facilitator and speaker I inspire my audiences to expand their perspectives and open to new possibilities in their lives. I revel in sitting around the virtual campfire telling stories that stir the soul and clarify the truth for you so you can see your place in the world with fresh eyes.  Epiphanies are my specialty.

As a mentor I am a catalyst for transformation, supporting those who seek personal evolution through the deep exploration of the sacred and the wisdom to manifest conscious shifts that improve your life in the here and now. I have over twenty years of experience working with visionary leaders, executive women, creative and social entrepreneurs and change agents. I believe that powerful and effective leadership begins with personal awareness and intentional development as a human being. Your title doesn't impress me. I care deeply, however, for your soul. I firmly believe that we are indeed spiritual beings having a human experience and this belief provides the lens through which I do my work with you.

As a conscious entrepreneur I recognize that the more I give the greater impact I can have.  Our project in Ecuador contributes to our local community through work opportunities, education and community service. My partner, who is an Andean Wisdom Keeper and a trained psychologist, and I have created a sacred space in Ecuador aptly named Oasis based on the concept of convivencia - to live with or to be in community with. We designed Oasis as an invitation to come home to yourself whenever you need to dig deeper into the unresolved questions of your life. When you come stay with us, you are nurtured in spirit, body and mind while we support you in your personal inquiry.
