1. ==> Should the President have a Business Brain?

“People may want to pause before voting a politician
into office simply because they have a brain for
business,” claims business strategist Matthew May.
“Business thinkers are susceptible to several fatal
thinking flaws that can render more nuanced and complex
political challenges nearly impossible to solve.” In a
10-year study, involving hundreds of interactive
creative problem-solving sessions, May gave over
100,000 professionals a thought challenge far less
complex than their routine business problems. Results?
Not only did less than 5% arrive at the best and most
elegant solution, but the solutions given were
remarkably similar. “The evidence I’ve collected points
to seven observable thinking flaws…glitches, if you
will. It’s not brain damage, it’s the human hard-wiring
that comes from deeply grooved thinking tracks formed
over time.” Matthew May is the author of “Winning the
Brain Game: Fixing the 7 Fatal Flaws of Thinking.”

2. ==> How Hillary Could Lose the Black Vote

While the black vote proved decisive for Hillary
Clinton’s apparent victory over Democratic Socialist
Bernie Sanders in the preferential primary contest,
Michael McCray says she can’t take it for granted in
November. “If Hillary for America does not invest the
time, staffing, and financial resources to actually get
out the black vote, some African-Americans will turn to
Donald Trump and many may simply stay home.” McCray
says, “Hillary actually lost black millennials to
Bernie Sanders. Her strength was with older blacks and
African American churches.” He adds,” Ironically, the
Obama Administration’s surprisingly strong support for
transgender rights in North Carolina may place pressure
on Hillary from the black church.” He’ll explain why
that is, and how Trump could surprise many political
observers by appealing to certain segments of black
voters. Michael McCray, Esq. CPA (inactive) is a
veteran of many Democrat / Clinton campaigns and the
author of “Race, Power & Politics” a primer on ACORN
and grassroots community organizing, which chronicles
the historic 2008 Democratic Primary Contest from an
African-American perspective. Contact him at (870)

3. ==> Did Trump Give Us the Finger?

What Donald Trump isn’t saying to us speaks volumes.
When we watch candidates like Hillary Clinton, Bernie
Sanders and Donald Trump on TV, our subconscious mind
picks up on the visual cues such as hand gestures and
facial expressions. Human behavior specialist Debbie
Silverman says, “It’s not so much the words the
candidate says that make us feel a certain way about
them, it’s the gestures they use.” She’ll explain why
Bernie Sanders has a very high likeability rating and
why the two top candidates have the lowest ratings on
honesty and trustworthiness. Debbie Silverman will
discuss how a simple gesture like a finger or a smile
could possibly win or lose the election. Debbie
Silverman is a human behavior specialist, NLP
practitioner and the author of “It’s Just a
Conversation – What to Say and How to Say It in
Business.” Contact her at (954) 610-1403 or

4. ==> GOP VS. Dems – Who Has Better Mental Health?

No doubt about it–one’s values and outlook on life can
lead to greater emotional well-being–or cynicism and
unhappiness. There are key differences in philosophy
between Republicans and Democrats on the right way to
conduct one’s life and create optimal conditions for
the majority of people. Which ways of thinking improves
psychological health? Which impede personal growth?
According to psychologist Dr. Paul Coleman,
“Emotionally healthy people meet life’s challenges
head-on with determination and creativity, bounce back
from defeats, extend themselves for others, and view
life as positive and meaningful despite adversity.” In
30 years of practice he’s noticed that the people who
are the most stressed, most unhappy, and whose
relationships get most complicated, must change their
outlook and approach to life in key ways. Which changes
are more aligned with a Democrat or Republican
philosophy? Have your listeners take the quiz and
decide! Paul Coleman, Ph.D., is the author of 12 books
including “Finding Peace When Your Heart Is in Pieces”

5. ==> Zika Outbreak Could Hit U.S.

With warmer weather and more mosquitoes undoubtedly on
the way, U.S. health officials are advising local
health departments to prepare for the possibility of a
Zika outbreak. Invite Dr. Jim Roach, a leading
integrative practitioner, to share what the virus is,
who are most at risk, and the best ways to prevent
becoming infected. He’ll even discuss anti-viral
strategies and give ideas on how to protect against
brain shrinkage even when Zika-infected. Jim Roach, MD,
has appeared on numerous radio and TV programs. He’s a
speaker, consultant, educator, researcher, and widely
sought clinician with patients from across the country.
He is also author of “God’s House Calls” which
discusses spiritual near-death experiences of his
patients and seeks to de-stigmatize spiritual
experiences. Contact Dr. Roach at (859) 846-4453

6. ==> Is Your Tap Water Safe to Drink?

Reports of lead and toxins in drinking water in Flint,
Michigan and other cities across the country have
raised awareness to contaminants in drinking water
nationwide. Invite Sophia Gushee to discuss how to
learn if your water should be filtered, which filter
options are best for your water supply, and whether
bottled water is healthier than tap. She’ll also share
detox tips for the kitchen, home, nursery, office, and
more. A mother of three, Sophia spent eight years
researching her children’s toxic exposures from common
household products. Ultimately, she realized that just
ten key goals are the most high impact ideas to focus
on and most cost little, or nothing. She refers to
these ten goals as her D-Tox Strategy, and believes
that we should consider our toxic exposures as often as
we think about what we eat and how much we exercise.
Sophia Gushee is the author of “A to Z of D-Toxing: The
Ultimate Guide to Reducing Our Toxic Exposures.”

It’s time to talk about everything wedding related,
including the perfect wedding gown. Rani St. Pucchi,
creator of the world-renowned St. Pucchi Fashion Design
House in West Hollywood will discuss the growing trend
toward risqué wedding gowns and why nude is the new
white for brides. She’ll share tips for finding the
best gown for your body type and discuss veils, colored
wedding gowns and tiaras. Despite having no formal
training in fashion, Rani St. Pucchi is famous for
designing the wedding dress worn by “Phoebe” on the
finale of the hit television show Friends. Rani is the
author of several upcoming books including “Unveiling:

8. ==> Two Words for New Grads

As a new class of college graduates enters the
workforce, Mike Madden has some simple advice. Very
simple. Two words actually. While commencement speakers
go on and on leaving grads grasping for the meaning and
relevance, Madden boils his advice down to two words.
He says, “Dream big! Nothing is out of your reach. If
you can dream it, you can do it!” In fact, Madden’s got
all kinds of two-word tips for living life after
school. Invite him to share his simple-but-sound advice

9. ==> Make More Money Loving the Job You Hate

Chances are many of your listeners are among the 68
percent of U.S. workers who are disengaged; many hate
their jobs … and their boss. Business consultant Greg
Jacobson can make a real difference in their lives, as
he explains how changing their attitude toward work,
their job and their boss will not only make them
happier but earn them more money. He’ll say that
happiness on the job is related to focus and once you
stop focusing on what you don’t like about work (and
start focusing on what you want to happen) amazing
things occur. Jacobson will also share who the most
promotable people at work are and why they are not the
people who work the hardest or get the most done. The
author of “Think Yourself Happy” is available as a
last-minute guest and has been on CBS, ABC, Bloomberg
News, CNN and more. Reach him at (805) 302-0692;

10. ==> What a Motorcycle Gang Taught Him about

At the age of 19, Tom Scarda got involved in one of the
most notorious outlaw motorcycles gangs in New York
City. “In retrospect,” he says, “it was simultaneously
one of the best and worst decisions of my life. While
being involved in the gang, I didn’t realize I was
learning valuable lessons that I’d be able to apply
years later in my businesses.” From branding to
recruiting and even having an attitude, Tom says
businesses could learn a lot from the way motorcycle
gangs are run. Fourteen years ago, Scarda quit his job
working for the New York Subway system and Long Island
Railroad to buy a smoothie franchise, which he sold
five years later at a considerable profit. He’s the
author of “Franchise Savvy: 6 Strategies Pros Use to
Pick Top Performing Franchises.” Contact him at (516)

11. ==> Can You Prevent Alzheimer’s?

More than 5 million Americans are currently living with
the memory-robbing disease known as Alzheimer’s.
Moreover, their numbers are expected to reach nearly 14
million by 2050. But what if there were a new
breakthrough in alternative medicine that could prevent
this dreaded disease? And what if no one were telling
us about it? There is such a therapy and you can
interview one of the pioneers. According to Michael
Morgan, his research is showing strong evidence of the
promise of Craniosacral Therapy in the treatment of at-
risk people and those in the early to mid-stages of
dementia. He’ll explain what Craniosacral Therapy is
(it’s also being used by NFL players, and children with
autism) and ways it can increase longevity. Morgan is
the author of “The BodyEnergy Longevity Prescription:
How CranioSacral Therapy Helps Prevent Alzheimer’s and
Dementia While Improving the Quality of Your Life.”

12. ==> Doc Shares Drug-Free Health Tips

In today’s society, there’s a pill for just about every
ailment and health issue. But Dr. Kathleen Fry says
there are other ways to treat illness and stay healthy
without drugs. Dr. Fry will explain what homeopathy is,
how it ‘s worked for millions of people around the
globe, and how the average person with no medical
training can use it for common ailments like colds,
flu, ear infections and food poisoning. A
conventionally trained medical doctor, Dr. Fry gave up
a lucrative Ob/Gyn practice in Scottsdale, Arizona to
care for her clients using a less toxic, more powerful
form of healing that restores people to health without
pharmaceutical drugs. Dr. Fry had a regular monthly
call in show in Phoenix for more than 10 years. Her
latest book is “”VITALITY! How To Get It and Keep It: A
Homeopath’s Guide to Vibrant Health Without Drugs.”

13. ==> Horses -The New Wonder Drug?

Researchers from the Institute of HeartMath have found
that horses have a Coherent Heart Rhythm, or HRV. A HRV
is indicative of a system which can recover from
stressful situations quickly. It also explains in large
part why some feel calm just being around and near a
horse. Invite Mindy Tatz Chernoff to discuss the many
physiological advantages that can be experienced when
people interact with horses, such as a lowered heart
rate, lowered blood pressure, and an overall sense of
well being and satiation. She says, “Whether you’re an
executive, parent, or child, horses have this amazing
ability to encourage and foster tools of curiosity,
mindfulness, and nonjudgement traits that are sorely
needed in today’s hectic technologically overladen
world.” Mindy Tatz Chernoff, B.A., M.A. , is founder of
The Resonant Horse. How Horses Heal, Transform and
Empower is the name of her TEDX Talk. Contact her at

14. ==> Real Interior Design – Lead a Less Complicated

Happiness is an inside job, yet it’s not something that
can be bought by fancy furniture or expensive
interiors. After twenty-five years of designing for the
likes of the ‘real’ housewives, former interior
designer Deeia Topp left a lucrative career to help
teach people that there is more to life than vanity and
excess. “This may seem crazy, but designing your life
is easier than designing your living space. Why?
Because all it takes is being mindful, daily, of your
intention to lead a less complicated life.” Deeia will
share some of the crazy client stories that led her to
switch careers and discuss three easy ways to find calm
amid a chaotic world. Deeia is an inspirational and
motivational speaker who helps teach people that life
doesn’t have to be as complicated as we make it. She is
the author of “Complicated by Design,” a delightfully
dishy peek behind the draperies of Greenwich’s Botoxed
elite. Contact her at (941) 350 -5716;

15. == > There May Not Be a 45th President

Robert Baynes has been watching the debt and currency
situation here in the US for several years with great
concern. He realized that anyone using simple math
could tell that our debt is unsustainable. As an
entrepreneur for over 30 years, he says he can sense
the changes that are affecting our future better than
the average person. He says, “Much like the recent
movie The Big Short, very few people want to see what
is coming. The government won’t tell people how serious
our debt situation actually is. In all actuality, the
total liabilities of the US Government are more than
the total net worth of all US citizens. The national
debt cannot and will not get paid. Our leaders will
kick the can down the road until it comes crashing
down. Then we will be facing martial law.” Baynes is
the author of “The Day the Dollar Died.” Contact him
