    Legal Veterans Institute: Helping Those Who Sacrificed For Us – Meet Antoinette Balta

    Legal Veterans Institute: Helping Those Who Sacrificed For Us – Meet Antoinette Balta

    "You don't have to serve in the military to be a patriot. There's no shortage of ways to give back in this country. We're blessed so why not pay it forward." - Antoinette Balta

    Veterans sacrifice so much for this country. And when we think about helping them, it’s usually about blankets. Or providing shelter. Or food.

    We hardly ever think about the legal challenges they face.

    But Antoinette did.

    She saw a need. A growing need for legal services that needed a response. Someone needed to step up. And so she did.

    Now Antoinette and the other attorneys at the Veterans Legal Institute now represent those who sacrifice so much for us.

    She embodies the type of guest we love to have on this podcast. That is someone who believes in purpose over profit.

    BeerPaper – A Passion Project

    BeerPaper – A Passion Project

    "At BeerPaper, we're beer fans just like all the other beer fans.  And we're providing a voice to our fellow drinkers and breweries."- Daniel Drennon

    It's a new month.  Is it here yet?  Where is it?

    Wait, I think I see something.  No, that's last month's issue.

    You grab another beer, thinking that if you wait long enough ... it will arrive.

    People around you laugh.  Life is good.  But you're wondering, seriously thinking "When is BeerPaper going to arrive?"  It's become a bit of a ritual.  A monthly routine.  Grab a beer.  Read the newest edition.

    Just then, a tall gentlemen walks in.  Ball cap on his head.  A stack of newly minted newspapers in his hand.  He cuts the strap, releasing the newspapers to the world.

    You grab your copy of BeerPaper.  You can almost feel the heat from printing press.  It smells so new.  And feels just right.

    The newspaper opens.  Which brewery was featured this month?  Which brew master talked about his story?  Did my beer photo from Instagram make the issue?

    This is BeerPaper.  The publication loved by this beer loving community from Southern California.

    And now the Editor, the Founder of BeerPaper grabs a beer, sits down with us, and shares his story.

    Having that Difficult Conversation with your Elderly Parents – Meet Helen Dolas

    Having that Difficult Conversation with your Elderly Parents – Meet Helen Dolas

    "Music in combination with the other arts transforms individuals. It's the bridge that allows our students to have personal expression and connect with other people." - Helen Dolas



    It's easy for most of us.  Get dressed in the morning.  Grab coffee.  Drive to work.



    But for some of us, we're trapped in our bodies.  Or trapped in our heads.  And the simplest activity requires help.



    Autism.  Down Syndrome.  Cerebral Palsy.



    But Helen Dolas has found a way to reach these people.  To let them express themselves through music.  And art.



    Art is not limited to only those with high IQ's.  Or to those with all their limbs.  Or full mobility.



    Art is for everyone.  Art is expression.  Art is community.



    Maria, one of the people that Able Arts helped, would like to say something to you.







    Four years ago, this wasn't possible.  Maria has Cerebral Palsy.  She can only move her head just a few inches.



    Now her art is displayed at LACMA, MOLA and other galleries.  She's had her own exhibitions.  And continues to be commissioned to create art pieces for international clients.



    Her incredible story is in this episode.



    Please enjoy this interview with Helen Dolas.

    It's tough.  Your parents that you've grown to love, to admire.  Who were always there for you.  And for you to watch as the simplest tasks start to evade them.

    How to Prevent Foot, Knee and Back Pain with the Right Shoes – Meet Alex Maltezos

    How to Prevent Foot, Knee and Back Pain with the Right Shoes – Meet Alex Maltezos

    You're dressed to the nines.  The doors swing open in front of you.  People turn their heads, seeing you.



    Compliments fly.  You're feeling good.  Right at home.  The hours spent preparing yourself are paying off.



    You make your way to the bar.  You're confident.  Smooth.  Feeling good.  The lady next to you whispers to her friend that her shoes are killing her feet.  That's too bad.  There's still 3 hours of partying left.



    But not you.  You stopped by Tenni-Mocs.  Alex Maltezos hooked you up with great looking shoes that are comfortable.



    At her store, she gives a proper fitting.  With the right shoe.  Something lost due to the "cost cutting", "time saving" MBA's that now run nearly all shoe stores.



    But that's ok with Alex.  She's on a crusade.  Make people look good.  While keeping your feet healthy.  Healthy feet are important.



    Because they're the only ones you got.



    In this episode we talk about



    Real customer service

    How podiatrists work

    How to pick out good, healthy shoes

    ... and much more!
