Eddys Velasquez always knew that the 9 to 5 job was not for him and because of this he decided to become his own boss going from $0 to $60 per hour within 1 year selling his own computer repair services, at the age of 15. He then stumbled on a twitter post that introduced him to online business and direct response marketing where he spent the next few years studying and implementing everything he could from selling websites to selling ebooks and everything in between.

Using what he learned in over 10 years of trial and error, Eddys now runs a lead generation business that did 300k+ in the first year and has helped several clients achieve similar or even better results in their respective businesses.

Dynamic. Enthralling. Captivating.

Unsure. Cautious. Withdrawn.

All of these words can be used to capture yours truly.

Born in the city nicknamed “The Big Easy,” the man whose words you’re reading began his unique journey through life. He was called many things – you could say he has been the jack of all trades. However, for a long period of time, he was the master of none of them. Having no solid direction, Saburi Chuku Cole Johnson set course for a blind soulful life. He only knew one side of his family. Why was that? It is because Cole’s father was a Black Panther Party member. Considering the political tension of the times, it precluded Cole to visit his father’s side of the family. The only family he knew resided on his mother’s side.

Cole’s father is strong, determined and lived life on accentuating his strengths and minimizing his weaknesses. Hos mother is a picture of academic curiosity. Every piece of knowledge there is to gain – his mother dogmatically pursued it. This is true – for the exception of higher learned – where she is a case study of potential unfulfilled.

Life lessons left the New Orleans born, Houston reared boy-turned-man continually searching for himself. He was a square peg attempting to fit into round holes. He tried the military (US Army) with no success. He tried photography with minimal success. He tried ticket scalping (it is legal in Houston to be a ticket broker) to little success. He even attempted undergrad college. You guessed it. It was met with little success, there, as well. The square peg kept getting rammed into situations that didn’t fit him.

Very few things were a good fit for Cole. He found a few square holes. Writing (in many forms) is one of them. Music (voice, piano, producer, composer) is another square hole for Cole. However, even these creative outlets served as a minor relief for feeling at home with life, in general.

As for other life aspects, he met a wonderful woman (after trying marriage and failing in the endeavor – ending in divorce) and more square holes started to appear. Church life (especially being in its choir), friends and his current wife, Michelle, all have served to give grounding to a man whose searched for meaning. Life began to make sense.

Then – there was his undergraduate institution, Trevecca Nazarene University. The proverbial scales fell from Cole’s eyes. His world opened up to reveal clarity to certain mysteries in his life. Purpose was beginning to take share – and once he walked away with a degree, the building blocks to his life was erected.

Today, he host/engineers/produces a podcast called Cole Sportz. He also is extending the brand into a membership club as he writes blogs and makes YouTube videos to strengthen the brand. Along with working at Media General as a multimedia content producer, the entrepreneurial sky is the limit for Cole.

Now – the square peg is fitting into many situations these days quite well.

Rachel is a co-founder and the Director of Travel for Rebel + Connect.
What I Do

I am the Director of Travel at Rebel + Connect. My work with remote team leaders allows them to gain insight about where to travel and what to do once they arrive.

As a leader it’s important to know:

Where your team is willing and able to travel.
What sort of travel experiences and cultural immersion will add to your team’s retreat.
That expanding the worldviews of your team members will enhance teamwork.
That exposure to diverse cultures inspires servant leadership within your organization.
Why I Do It

Being part of the Rebel + Connect leadership team allows me to share the magic of travel, elevate and ignite the passions of each team member, and enhance the harmony of remote team cultures.

Where I Come From

Before joining forces with Charlie and Summer to build Rebel + Connect, I held many different travel and hospitality related roles including: Ambassador for WorldVentures helping with the production and execution of events as large as 20,000 in attendance; Ski Instructor in Beaver Creek, CO with Vail Resorts and Mount Buller in Victoria, AUS; Independent Travel Photographer; Mission Trip Leader for Hug It Forward; Co-Founder of Project K1; and Co-Founder of Art in the City: a Children's Summer Art Experience.

I earned a BS in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, a BA in Fine Art Photography, and am a certified Pranic healer. In 2015, I was named Volunteer of the Year for the Americas by the WorldVentures Foundation. These experiences have taught me that travel is less about fancy resorts and tourist attractions and more about servant leadership and responsible global citizenship.

I was born and raised in Atlanta, but have identified as a nomad for most of my adult life. I was almost 29 years old before I paid rent at the same address for a full year. I have visited Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Spain, France, England, Italy, Netherlands, Vatican City, Canada, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Haiti, Jamaica, Mexico, Cayman Islands, Bonaire, Ghana, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia, 34 of the 50 states and, and South America and Antarctica are the only continents I have yet to visit.

I believe in the importance of connecting to the creative spirit of the inner child. I believe in creating and cultivating joy any chance we can. I believe in the fulfillment of the self in order to fill others. When we brighten our own flame within, and all of us come together, we burn as a bigger, warmer, more luminous flame than we ever thought possible.

What I Love

I celebrate my life by connecting with family and friends, nature, speaking my truth, leading with my heart, attending burns and music festivals, exploring the ocean through scuba diving, skiing, snowboarding, horseback riding, and practicing monkey kung fu, yoga, and meditation.

Jefferson resident, Jeremy Slate, launched the "Create Your Own Life" podcast in November 2015. Within the first five months of the show, it reached 50,000 downloads and hit number one in iTunes New and Noteworthy and number 24 in all of Business. The show has also been downloaded in 165 countries.

The career model is changing, according to Forbes. On average, a millennial will have 15-20 jobs in their career. The show stems from Slate’s personal career journey from a high school history teacher, to an insurance salesman, to a fitness entrepreneur, to an internet marketing expert. When Slate was a high school history teacher and realized he was not in the right field, the concept of "Create Your Own Life" was born.

The show has gained strong momentum from celebrity guests like James Kyson from the NBC hit show "Heroes," former New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford and former presidential candidate Wayne Allyn Root.

Today Ari resides in Bridgehampton, NY with his wife Anna, three sons Benjamin, Sebastien, and Lucas, and two dogs Sylvain and Oscar. Ari and Anna met as young children at the UN International School, where Ari attended both primary and high school.

Ari went on to attend The University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business and graduated in the class of ’03, one year early. He received a BS in Economics with concentrations in Real Estate and Entrepreneurship, and minors in Art history and Psychology. He was also honored as an Albert A. Berg scholar.

Ari launched his career early when at the age of twelve he agreed to create a company website for one of his father’s business associates. This was the foundation of Liontex, a company with which Ari worked on over one hundred and fifty websites. Continuing to capitalize on the rapid growth of the still emerging online market, at sixteen Ari created and developed Menus-to-Go.com. Menus-to-Go is essentially a go-to internet directory of take out and delivery menus in and around NYC. The site has been described as a precursor to Delivery.com and Food.com. At seventeen Ari went on to found TEK, a consultancy specializing in home theatre, computer networking and telecommunications for homes and businesses.

After his graduation Ari was given a tour of some disused cigar factories by a friend. Seeing potential, he bought the factories with the goal of turning them into luxury lofts. Unfortunately he had no experience in construction, so the majority of the following two years were spent learning and doing all of the trades required on the job. Once the factory conversion was underway Arise Development came into being. Today Arise Development continues to focus on bringing life to dilapidated and abandoned buildings. Expanding his portfolio, Ari bought Lackawanna Train Station, which in the eighties had been converted into offices. The Lackawanna property is in keeping with Arise Development’s mantra of making use of historic spaces, and the station boasts the last remaining Marconi radio tower in the US.

Returning from upstate Ari began work mainly in the Hamptons, creating state of the art commercial and retail space, as well as affordable housing. He began to build green, and became a LEED accredited professional. This encouraged him to create LEED Pro, a green building consultancy. The LEED Pro Blog was picked up by Princeton Architectural Press, and Ari was offered a book deal for LEED Materials: A Resource Guide to Green Building. Ari continued to develop his skills and expertise in green building, working as a Materials Innovation Specialist to major sustainable real estate firm John Picard & Associates. He also created his own polymer based construction material called PapierTile.

The most recent project Ari has been involved in is further building and renovation in the Hamptons through Meisel Development. He has undertaken his first solo project in SylvanHaus a retail development twinned with affordable apartment building.

Ari turned a hobby of productivity into a popular framework and consulting service for optimizing, automating and outsourcing of of life’s tasks. Less Doing, More Living continues to grow in popularity and has become a platform for general efficiency consulting to businesses, entrepreneurs and everyone else who could use a little more time in their life. His Achievement Architecture coaching program helps individuals and teams overcome challenges and be more effective. In 2007, Ari was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. Crohn’s is an incurable disease of the digestive tract. Ari’s case was severe, and required over a dozen daily medications and several hospital visits. After reaching a personal low point in hospital, Ari decided he would do everything in his power to strengthen his by then weak body. Through a combination of yoga, nutrition, natural supplements and rigorous exercise he was able to fight back the symptoms of Crohn’s until he was finally able to suspend his medication. Eventually Ari was declared free of all traces of the ‘incurable’ disease, and competed in Ironman France in June of 2011. Ari has since spoken at seminars and at a regional TED Talk about his struggle against a seemingly insurmountable opposition.

At a time when some hail the end of men, we have a talk show that showcases the exact opposite of that. “Real” married men are not the misogynistic, career-obsessed, arrogant specimens we often see portrayed on television or elevated in our mainstream culture. In this age of anything-goes, the "Married Men Don’t Talk Show" offers a candid, sincere, thoughtful outlook on the everyday problems that men face. It is a show that offers a safe place for married men to be themselves and discuss issues they may not otherwise. The men who participate in this forum find themselves challenged to face their life’s problems with a renewed and determined spirit. They will find correction, encouragement, humor, and a brotherly connection. Despite being established since 2009, it is in many respects a completely new vehicle that both men and women alike can appreciate. Those who have listened and will listen will find something unlike anything they have ever heard or experienced. These men will literally blow your mind and will obliterate the many negative stereotypes of men that are present in modern society. This is indeed not the end of men, but a revival and a respect for those truly authentic men - those who embrace their role as head of household proudly and happily. Our mission is to give married men the tools necessary to ensure that their family not only survives, but thrives!

The last three years have been a major turning point in my life. After the massive change, I made in 2006 of moving to the other side of the world with only two suitcases I now finally made some of my dreams come true. I wrote my first Amazon bestseller book called Yes I do & I did it. I left the corporate world behind to start my own business based on freedom and using my neglected talents as a psychic, healer and artist. I finally made a move out of the city on 5 acres of green lush land 10 minutes from the beach in a sub-tropical climate. I even got married for the first in my life and live now with my husband, 2 adopted fur-babies, five miniatures goats, two alpacas, two sheep and one retired racehorse.
My goal is to facilitate as many people as possible to awaken to their full potential. Bring everyone back to wholeness, holiness, by healing the old wounds and giving techniques to raise awareness of what they really are.

My name is Elayna Fernandez and I’m known worldwide as The Positive Mom. My mission is to encourage, empower, equip moms like YOU to have more influence at home, more impact in the world, and more income to make it happen, so you can live a life with JOY, BALANCE, and SUCCESS on your own terms without the guilt, struggles, and overwhelm. My philosophy is BE Positive and You’ll BE Powerful!

As an author, speaker, and award-winning success guide, I love mentoring mom bloggers how to turn pain into purpose and their passion into their paycheck by developing a millionaire mom mindset. I consider myself a geekess and word-nerd and I love pouring my heart out about the topics of motherhood, mompreneurship, and motivation for moms.

I love Motherhood and I believe it is a partnership with God; the highest calling of a woman in this planet. As a Success Guide, I mentor mom bloggers to BE Positive and develop Millionaire Mom Mindset, and to have the motivation needed to achieve motherhood and mompreneurship goals.

Mommy Labels

I’m a Latina, vegan, homeschooling wife and mom, a blogger, an avid reader, a writer, an influencer, a teacher, a mentor, a strategist, a smiley being, a geekess, a hugaholic, “a mompreneur,” and a lifelong learner. Mothers come in all shapes, labels, and sizes (I’m 4’9″!), but we are really all the same: we need MOMtivation — yes, we need each other to keep motivated. We become Positive Moms by learning together, connecting with each other, and inspiring one another… we’re all in this together: Lifting as we climb! Great moms think alike… we think positive!

Once Upon A Time…

I decided to become a positive mom in late 2004, when I found myself a sudden single mother (and sole parent) of a one and a two year old and felt stuck: pain, uncertainty, and lack of resources… I was alone, scared, homeless, penniless, and clueless how to get started. But I had a VISION…and I had FAITH… and I was committed to intentional, positive parenting!

Happily Ever After…

Today, I’m grateful to see my girls flourish into beautiful, successful, strong young ladies, to enjoy the freedom and flexibility to create success on my own terms through a rewarding home-based business, to be married to my eternal partner and soulmate, and to experience the miracle of pregnancy and birth yet once again in August of 2013. I feel BLESSED and in total GRATITUDE each day!

That’s where YOU come in!

My mission is to share my love, joy, and all gained wisdom with you, to guide you in creating the life you’ve always (and probably secretly) dreamed of and you most desire. I teach moms like you how to align with YOUR personal destiny, by Discovering, Living, Balancing, Monetizing, and RadiatingYOUR Passions… If I can do it, any MOM can! More on that here…

What My BFFs Know…

I was born and raised in lovely San José de Ocoa, in the Dominican Republic. My dad is my hero and my mom is my rock… and I’m the oldest of 5 wonderful siblings [he he]. I have been living in the United States since December 2001.

My highest accomplishments in life are named Elisha, Elyssa, and Eliana. They were born in 2002, 2003, and 2013. Natural med-free birth, breastfeeding, and homeschooling are the most rewarding activities I’ve been a part of. What a privilege it is to give life, to sustain life, and to share love through your body! I love womanhood and motherhood!

I speak Spanish, English, and Italian, and my daughters are also bilingual. I love books like crazy and my favorite fiction author is Gabriel García Marquez. I have studied and taught Marketing (one of my life’s passions since childhood), Web Design, Customer Service, Graphic Design, Professional Sales, Social Media, E-mail Marketing, Communication, Organization, Blogging, Book Writing, and even Legal Studies!!!

For me, technology = play. I love teaching, writing, guiding, mentoring, and coaching… and it shows in my books, seminars, webinars, and teleworkshops.

I am extremely grateful for the blessing of creativity, attention to detail, pig-headed determination, and enthusiasm for life, and I firmly believe that who you are – ALL of it – is a brilliant design, created to accomplish a masterful mission… you are powerful and you can access that power by being positive!

I love all of God’s creations and my favorite happen to be koalas, horses, and orchids. My favorite activities in life include investing quantify and quality time with my family, smiling, hugging, making up-cooking-and-eating homemade vegan meals for my family, laughing, learning, reading and writing books, family prayer, dancing, singing in the shower, listening to uplifting music, yoga, experiencing the outdoors, playing at the beach, hula-hooping, and meeting happy people! My best friend’s name is Carolina. She’s irreplaceable!

The only sport I’ve ever been interested in and good at is chess. I learned how to drive when I was 28, and how to ride a bike, how to swim, and how to literally Walk On Fire well after my 30th birthday. My birthday is December 16. I’ve been close to dying more than 7 times in my life!!!

We all have our challenges and struggles to overcome. Sometimes it takes us hitting rock bottom to find our hidden gem. Over the past couple of years, my life has completely turned upside down after getting hurt on the job. Due to my lifelong injuries, my teaching career would never be the same again. Looking back, I now see why things happened the way they did. Even though I loved teaching, and I absolutely adored my students, I had this overwhelming feeling that there was something else I needed to be doing…something much bigger. But like most of us, we continue to stay in the same place because it feels safe and comfortable.

At first, besides being in constant pain, I started feeling sorry for myself…it was so unbelievably frustrating. If it weren’t for the continued love and support from God and the Angels, my friends and family, and my puppy, I’d be in a much worse off situation. One day, I decided enough is enough, I wasn’t going to fall victim to my unfortunate circumstances, and instead I went searching for answers within, and found my life purpose…my truth.

This led me on my own personal transformational journey…I did a lot of soul searching and work on my mind, body, and soul. My true mission originated from my wounds of low self-esteem and body image issues that I endured growing up. And what I realized was that mostly all of my struggles stemmed from putting everyone else before me, and not loving myself first. Coming to that realization was a tremendous Aha moment for me, and ever since then, I’ve been empowering not only myself, but others, as well.

That’s when I decided to sign up for Get Gutsy Coach Training School; I gained a lot of clarity into who I am here to serve, and connected with a group of unbelievable women. I’ve learned to take my past hurts and disappointments and turn them into something positive. My vision is to help as many women as possible learn to love and embrace themselves just as they are. We need to no longer believe what we see in the media as perfection and understand that we are all imperfectly perfect in our own way.

As The Spiritual Self-Love Coach, I intuitively guide women towards getting to the root of their blocks, breaking those blocks down, and then build them back up. I help inspire, motivate, and empower women who have been struggling with low self-esteem and body image issues. Part of my mission involved teaming up with The Body Image Movement, and becoming a Body Image Movement Global Ambassador. With that, I volunteered to host a screening of the film EMBRACE the documentary to my local movie theater at Regal Ronkonkoma on November 3 at 7 pm. Screenings of this documentary are happening all across the United Sates – encouraging women locally and globally to embrace and love their bodies…absolutely phenomenal. The screening will only take place if we get 60 people to reserve their tickets ahead of time. Bring your best gals, and make it a girl’s night out! It’s unlike any other movie you will ever experience.
