    Episode 61: Ken Ungar, CHARGE

    Ken Ungar is the President & Founder of CHARGE, focused on unlocking
    the power of sponsorships to enhance the brands and grow the
    businesses of the C-suite, sales workforce, and nonprofit space alike.

    social responsibility.

    Episode 60: Vikrant Shaurya

    Episode 60: Vikrant Shaurya

    Vikrant Shaurya is the CEO and Founder of BestsellingBook.com. He’s also the author of two #1 bestsellers: P.O.W.E.R: The Success Mantra, and How to Write a Bestseller: Become a Bestselling Author, Attract High-Value Clients, and Skyrocket Your Authority. 
    Vikrant is the most-viewed author for “eBook Publishing” on Quora and is recognized by the National Academy of Bestselling Authors.
    A lifelong lover of books, this entrepreneurial bibliophile devoted years of his life not only to devouring the books of industry giants like Tony Robbins, Robert Kiyosaki, Brendon Burchard, Tim Ferriss and Eckhart Tolle, but also to mastering the art and science of precisely how they built their business empires.
    So in three years, Vikrant started his first company, The Books Factory, to help thought leaders become book authors to get the word out about their products and services. And it was indeed a factory, one that churned out book after book that gave these new authors the platform they needed to grow their business. 
    But as it turned out, The Books Factory was more than just a factory. It was a premium, highly specialized, white-glove service that produced not just ordinary books, but #1 bestsellers. 
    So in 4 years, Vikrant rebranded The Books Factory as BestsellingBook.com, because the books he and his team were producing consistently transformed their authors’ lives. 
    They helped them win massively more clients; get invited to numerous TV shows, podcasts, and speaking gigs; and ultimately skyrocket their business like never before.
    Vikrant has already helped more than 500 aspiring authors become bestselling authors, and he continues to be a trailblazer in the book industry. 
    With BestsellingBook.com, he provides a totally done-for-you, 100%-moneyback-guarantee service that includes ideating, writing, editing, publishing, and marketing books to become #1 bestsellers on the likes of Amazon, The Wallstreet Journal, and USA Today in just six months or less.

    Episode 59: Adrienn Chang, Wow Wow Lemonade El Dorado Hills

    Adrienn Chang is the owner of Wow Wow Hawaiian Lemonade in El Dorado Hills, California.  Working in the insurance industry for almost 20 years, she got tired of the corporate world and wanted to pursue her passion in being a small business owner.  When she was first introduced to the Wow Wow Hawaiian Lemonade franchise by her close friend two years ago, the good vibes and the good eats instantly brought her back home to her roots in Maui.  

    Adrienn fell in love with the brand and the mission to inspire and uplift customers with a craft lemonade experience, by serving the tastiest fresh pressed lemonades, craft acai bowls, and healthy bites, while leaving a reduced environmental footprint for the next generation.  

    Everything she offers at the Lemonade Stand is what she would proudly serve to her own family and she is excited to bring the taste of the islands and the aloha spirit to her community.
