Kathy Gardarian

On her new book,
Feet to the Fire: Finding My Soul in Success
Kathy Gardarian is the Founder and CEO of Qualis International Inc., a multi-million-dollar sales and distribution company.  It is especially fascinating that she has nurtured a lifelong passion for spirituality even as she has climbed the corporate ladder of achievement. Kathy has served as a director on many other boards, both corporate and non-profit, and often as the first female voice, including Van’s Inc., The World Business Academy, The Gorbachov State of the World Forum, Chapman University, and the Woman’s Leadership Board at Harvard’s JFK School. Kathy was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Association of Woman Business Owners. She lives in Newport Coast, California.
Feet to the Fire is a treasure of a book. I literally could not put it down. While love, business, and success may seem like strange bed fellows, Kathy’s empowering story, told as a series of clear and concise lessons, is a powerful guide to living the life of your dreams. You will want to buy a carton to give to family and friends.”- Joan Borysenko, Ph.D.?NY Times Best-Selling Author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind.

Al Johnson

Bullies Be Gone!
Al Johnson is the creator and founder of the Bullies Be Gone! Project.  He has been teaching children, teens, and adults in California in anti-bullying, safety, awareness, and self-confidence skills since 1985.His program includes racial harmony, understanding, and tolerance.
Bullies count on kids not being aware. This makes it easy for a kid to be caught off guard. Al teaches them how to immediately “Hit the light switch!”(in their mind) when confronted by a bully or anyone else making them feel uncomfortable. Specific words, phrases, and stanzas are engrained in them. 
The training is serious, yet fun, and in order to be used most effectively, what they learn is their secret to keep.  Whenever they find themselves in an uncomfortable situation with a bully or anyone else seeking to take advantage of them, they’ll be ready.
