Lorraine A. Moore of Accelerate Success to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA, January 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Lorraine A. Moore is the founder of Accelerate Success, where she works with CEOs and owners of small and mid-sized organizations and their boards to help them achieve greater success in all aspects of their business across all industries.

Lorraine helps her clients with everything from CEO succession and board governance to leadership development, crisis management, technology, strategy and marketing. As a corporate executive for almost 30 years, she brings real-life experience to her clients.

“Whether it's a board chair struggling with performance, a CEO trying to figure out how to expand into a new marketplace, or a corporate executive looking to make a career change at 50, I’ve advised executives with all of these things and I have served in these roles myself.”,” says Lorraine. “I'm able to speak from the client's experience.”

Lorraine says the people she works with are already highly intelligent and highly successful. They often know what the best actions are for their business or their customers or their employees, but they need someone objective to help validate their decisions.

These experiences inspired her to write The 360 Degree CEO: Generating Profits While Leading and Living with Passion and Principles.

“There had been so many stories in the media about politicians and leaders who were taking action or making decisions or doing things that appeared to be based on greed and ego and arrogance,” says Lorraine, “but I knew so many leaders who made courageous decisions, who sometimes went against what their board wanted, what their executives, employees and customers wanted, because they made the decision based on their values and believed it was the right decision. I wanted to bring more of those stories to the forefront.”

Lorraine is also the author of Feet to the Fire: How to Exemplify and Create the Accountability that Creates Great Companies.

“I was hearing so frequently from people at all levels about holding people accountable,” says Lorraine. “You need to look in the mirror first. And that requires a level of self-awareness, to be honest with yourself about where you are honoring your commitments and where you are not. We all benefit from some self-exploration about what we want and most value in our careers and lives.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Lorraine A. Moore in an interview with Jim Masters on January 30th at 12pm EST and February 6th at 12pm EST

Dr. Melissa Samartano of the Holistic Counseling Center to be Featured on Close Up Radio


MelissaSamartano2 Book

PLYMOUTH, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, January 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — When we seek counseling for depression, anxiety, panic, or trauma we expect to pour our heart out and release all those pent-up emotions we have bottled up inside. But what if instead our doctor prefers to examine the root cause of our issues? What if they seek to treat us by suggesting acupuncture, yoga, herbs, mindfulness, meditation, connecting to higher consciousness, helping us learn to listen to that inner wisdom, and encouraging self-care? With these nonpharmacological methods of facilitating care, can we truly live in an optimal state of health and well-being?

Dr. Melissa Samartano, is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, she has a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling Psychology and has a PHD in Metaphysics. She is from Plymouth, MA and has a clinical practice called Holistic Counseling Center with 5 licensed and credentialed clinicians working for her. She serves a broad population of people with an even broader range of mental health related issues. She is also a certified and registered yoga teacher and teaches ongoing yoga classes through her practice. Dr. Samartano is also the author of “Your Body Knows How To Heal: A Women’s Guide To Preventing And Reversing Heart Disease.”

“My practice encompasses a holistic approach that integrates the mind, body, and spirit focusing on your overall well-being, not just treating symptoms,” says Melissa. “By evaluating every aspect of my client’s health, I discover underlying causes of their mental health issues.”

Some may find they have physical issue such as thyroid, digestive, low testosterone, low iron, or other physical health issues they didn’t know about which is causing the mental health issue. Mostly all these issues are caused by external and internal stress on the body. Stress is the leading cause of disease in our country. Emotional stress, environmental stress, and living in the fight or flight response to life leads to chronic mental and physical illness. Melissa works with her clients on finding an emotional release for this underlying fear-based response to life. What are we holding onto emotionally that is causing chronic illness?

Twenty years ago, Melissa’s heart started racing out of control. It would routinely race up to 300 beats a minute for 45 minutes at a time. Her life was at serious risk causing her to frequently faint and black out sending her to the ER and ultimately landing her in the ICU for 10 days. After the second invasive heart procedure called an ablation didn’t work, she realized she needed to change her life. She remembers sitting there on the OR table thinking “I can’t live the rest of my life going in and out of the hospital and on medication blacking out everywhere.” Dr. Samartano could have died of a heart attack or stroke with her heart rate jumping up that high. So, she decided to change her life around.

According to Dr. Samartano, good nutrition is critical in healing our body, mind, and spirit. She emphasizes how important it is to focus on our gut health. Your gut represents 70% of your immune system. If the bacteria are sick so are you. She recommends eliminating white flour, sugar, corn, dairy, gluten, alcohol all huge contributors to obesity and poor nutrition which leads to chronic illness. By eating a plant-based diet you can not only lose weight but decrease your risk for heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and cognitive issues.

“Along with nourishing our physical bodies we should practice nourishing our mind and spirit,” says Dr. Samartano “We emit feel good chemicals which help the body fight against disease and viruses. Practicing quieting the mind and listening to that inner wisdom, intuition, or gut feeling helps guide us in our lives making healthy choices for our bodies.”

In her book she discusses step by step key strategies to improve our overall health and happiness and literally reclaim our lives.

“I know it seems hard to think about what we need to do differently to help our healing process,” says Melissa. “And it could seem intimidating and overwhelming to think that we are contributing to our health either in healthy positive ways or unhealthy negative ways. I am here to tell you that you can do this. You can change your life around. In my book I provide techniques and tools to help you learn just how to accomplish it.”

Melissa emphasizes three things to properly heal: being patient, remaining proactive in order to yield results, and trusting the healing process.

“Learning to listen to our bodies is paramount in our healing process” says Dr. Samartano. “Making cognitive and behavioral changes, practicing mindfulness, yoga, prayer, meditation, increasing self-care, and focusing on what we love most invokes feelings of peace and contentment that will take us on a path to living our best lives and healing our bodies from chronic illness, isn’t that what we all want most?”

Says Melissa, “Your body is your most powerful ally and partner. You only have to empower it. I know you’re not perfect—no one is. But there is a path that is ideal for you that you can only perfect by starting to take one step after the other. Just as it is true that your reactions to stress have created your current state of illness, it is also true that you can choose new reactions and create a new state of health.”

Close Up Radio will feature Dr. Melissa Samartano in an interview with Jim Masters Tuesday January 28th at 1 p.m. EST.

Author and HR Strategist Ed Krow to be Featured on Close Up Radio

MARIETTA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, January 23, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a sales organization, salespeople drive results, but who hires those salespeople? Who ensures they're trained? Who makes sure they are motivated, and their incentive package meets their needs?

All these responsibilities reside in human resources, but the average human resource department is treading water at best. Modern HR is focused exclusively on compliance. While necessary, they don't drive business results.

Ed Krow is an HR strategist who transforms human resources departments to drive business results. Krow is the author of Strategic HR: Driving Bottom Line Results Through Your People.

“Today, human resources function matters, but the human resources profession does not,” says Krow. “What's the goal of your job? When's the last time you held a training for your team that wasn't compliance related? If you’re not working on their skill development as leaders in the workplace, as influencers, as good teammates, what attracts people to your workplace?” I challenge people to do something different: to make your workplace the best that it can be.”

Krow says it's all about being proactive. You want an HR department that's innovating, not just going through the motions each day. Krow helps turn irrelevant/ineffective HR functions into strategic contributors by aligning HR with the business objectives.

“When I work with organizations, I'm typically working with the owner and C-suite executives on initiatives for how they construct their management teams for success today, but also in succession planning for tomorrow,” says Krow. “My professional joy comes from making a difference for my clients.”

As a professional speaker, Krow speaks on Human Resources, Leadership, and Motivation.

“The focus should be on developing and motivating employees,” says Krow. “I've asked HR professionals in sales heavy organizations, ‘When is the last time you went out on the road with a salesperson?” Never. Why wouldn't you want to understand how your product or service is making a difference for your customers? That's going to help you hire better people and develop leaders who can address the customer’s needs. To me it's just common sense.”

Close Up Radio will feature Ed Krow in an interview with Jim Masters on January 27th at 12pm EST.

Karen Quinones, Esteemed Author and Tour Guide, to Release Critically Acclaimed Theodosia Burr Book in February 2020

Theodosia Burr: Teen Eyewitness to the Founding of the New Nation

The book is scheduled to release on February 4, 2020 and is available for preorder on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, January 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Karen Quinones, esteemed author and tour guide, is starting off the new year with a bang with the release of her new book, “Theodosia Burr: Teen Eyewitness to the Founding of the New Nation”. The book is scheduled to release on February 4, 2020 and is available for pre-order on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. It is being published by Lerner Publishing Group.

“Theodosia is a fascinating person and grew up radically different from the girls around her. I think this is appealing to all teens today who are different. Her story is inspiring,” states Karen Quinones.

“Theodosia Burr: Teen Eyewitness to the Founding of the New Nation” is about the journey of Theodosia and how she impacted women’s education in America. Theodosia was the first young woman in New York City to be educated in the same manner as the young men. This biography uses her family’s personal correspondence and the recollections of those who knew her to recreate life in the 1780s and 1790s New York City and the story of an independent and highly educated young woman at a time when women were not fully educated and considered a lower class. And Theodosia Burr did “blow them all away.” It includes full-color illustrations and reproductions of correspondence.

“Her mother was also a well-educated woman, but not in a formal manner as was Theodosia. Her father, Aaron, was very radical in his ideas about women and loved to be around intellectual women,” Quinones continues. “He set out to prove that women were able to achieve the same intellectual status as men.” Theodosia was educated by the same tutors and teachers as Alexander Hamilton’s sons, the author Washington Irving and other NYC elite young men.

Quinones wrote the book as a way to celebrate the historically accurate incredible life of an extraordinary young woman in New York City during the 1780s and 1790s. The book is scheduled just in time to celebrate Women’s History Month (March 2020) with the inspiring story of Theodosia Burr, the daughter of Vice President Aaron Burr. Theodosia is known to fans of the musical “Hamilton” as the subject of the song “My Theodosia” a duet sung by Burr and Hamilton.

Quinones believes that a movement is currently in works. “As a result of the Hamilton musical, many American girls/women know a little about Theodosia,” claimes Quinones. “There’s a song in the musical about her: ‘My Theodosia’. I want her to become as popular as Alexander Hamilton and for everyone to want to read about her! And for me, I would like to be as well known as Ron Chernow (author of Hamilton biography that inspired the musical) for my expertise in Theodosia and her father.”

Karen’s book is already off to a great start in its pre-release as the few who have read it gave praising reviews. Most notably, Kirk Reviews is a highly regarded reviewing platform and it is very hard to get a good review from them. But Karen was able to with her book. “The writing is crisp, clear, and engaging. Full-color illustrations add visual appeal,” states Kirk Reviews. “This is an interesting and accessible way to learn about early U.S. history through a remarkable young woman's life.”

Full review here:

Sounds like “Theodosia Burr: Teen Eyewitness to the Founding of the New Nation” is a must-read and should be pre-ordered immediately.


Karen Quinones

Karen Q has spent fifteen years immersed in NYC’s early history. What began as a hobby, reading original documents, became a passion when she learned the stories of people long forgotten who did amazing things to create the city and nation we have today. In 2005 she began the Revolutionary Era walking tour to honor those great NYers. At the request of enthusiastic customers, she added the Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr Tour and The Revolutionary War Spies Tour.

Karen is the author of the forthcoming book “Theodosia Burr: Teen Witness to the Founding of the New Nation”, Lerner Books, Spring 2020.

New Book 'FIGHTBACK' Details How Europe Can Lead The Way To Digitalization

“Fightback: How to win in the digital economy with platforms, ventures and entrepreneurs”


“A must-read for everyone working in a traditional industry”: Praise for new book launched during World Economic Forum by Felix Staeritz and Simon Torrance

DAVOS, SWITZERLAND, AND BERLIN, GERMANY, January 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Digitalization is the biggest disruption for business as usual at any major corporation. Trusted mindsets and existing business models are collapsing, corporations are struggling to react to the Fourth Industrial Revolution by risking too little transforming too slowly – particularly in Europe. This is the starting point of the exciting new book “Fightback: How to win in the digital economy with platforms, ventures and entrepreneurs” to be published in the U.S. and across the EU as well as the UK on January 23rd 2020.

“It’s time to wake up, act and really shape digital change. We need to take up responsibility for digitalization, and this is Europe’s opportunity to be at the center stage of this change,” says corporate venture builder and tech entrepreneur Felix Staeritz, the principal author, along with digital platform expert Simon Torrance.

“Fightback” has already received praise from policy and business thought-leaders, such as Klaus Schwab, World Economic Forum Founder & Executive Chairman: “Fightback showcases how to embrace digitalization and how to overcome disruption.” And Gisbert Ruehl CEO of Kloeckner & Co., said: “ A must-read for everyone working in a traditional industry.”

A serial entrepreneur, digital growth expert and founder of several startups and platforms, Felix Staeritz is also a member of the World Economic Forum’s Digital Leaders board and CEO of FoundersLane, a corporate venture builder. Co-author Simon Torrance, one of the world's leading experts on business model transformation, specializing in platform strategy and digital ventures, and is a member of the World Economic Forum’s executive working group on Digital Platforms and Ecosystems. The foreword has been written by Martina Larkin, the Head of Regional Strategies – Europe and Eurasia at the World Economic Forum.

The 286 pages strong “Fightback” delivers a different, fresh perspective and a convincing blueprint that will enable business leaders to use the digital economy to their advantage by leveraging three powerful, but little understood, strategic tools – platform business models, digital ventures and the special skills of tech entrepreneurs. Based on a sophisticated analysis, the book is a hands-on playbook for corporate renewal in an age of digitalization and makes a convincing case for Europe leading the way in changing minds and business around the world.

The book will be launched this Thursday, January 23rd, during the 2020 World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting week and its headline topic “Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World”, which touches on the very dissues discussed in “Fightback”: How to help businesses create the models, essential, to remain competitive as the Fourth Industrial Revolution unfolds, in a world driven by exponential technological change, as well as increasing expectations from stakeholders, on all sides.

As for digitalization, the book claims, the tipping point has already occurred, but the authors make the case for reasons to be cheerful. But it’s easy to get it wrong, as it’s not enough to simply digitize existing operational processes, as outdated trading practices are failing to have an impact, yet established corporations remain hesitant to embrace change and challenge this deep-rooted inertia. The “magic of the platform”, as the authors call it, is at the core of this radically new approach, resulting in entrepreneurial co-creation. Last but not least, the authors explain how to create a framework for change in a company and present five hands-on steps on how to renew.

An excellent combination of deep analysis based on the latest research and hands-on strategies for action-driven operations, the book addresses these challenges:
•That is the real driving force behind the new digital business models that are disrupting every industry?
•What are the key elements of adapting and/or competing with them?
•How do globally leading corporations react by changing their approach and strategies?
•What are the essential tools for a new approach, i.e. allocation of capital to digital investments, attracting young entrepreneurial talents, how do they function?
•How to create the most effective organizational set-up to take advantage of new high margin digital growth opportunities fast and how to create a portfolio of digital ventures that could become more valuable than the core business.
•Understand how to rapidly create new high growth/high margin digital ventures in practice.

The book brings together a unique set of dynamic entrepreneurs, hands-on practitioners with consulting experience with leading companies, CEOs of top global corporations, and some of the world’s top digital thought-leaders, as well as scholars of various areas of expertise:
