Dr. Joe Vitale is the author of far too many books to mention here. Here are just a few of them: He wrote the bestseller, The Attractor Factor: 5 Easy Steps for Creating Wealth (or anything else) from the inside out. It became a #1 bestseller twice, even beating the latest Harry Potter book. He also wrote Life’s Missing Instruction Manual: The Guidebook You Should Have Been Given at Birth. It, too, became a #1 bestseller and was picked up by WalMart. One of his most popular titles, Zero Limits: The Secret Hawaiian System for Wealth, Health, Peace, and More reflects an ancient Hawaiian practice, known as Ho’oponopono. A fan favorite, Joe has hosted multiple live events on the subject, nation-wide, and he has created quite a following on this title alone. Joe also wrote the only book on P.T. Barnum’s business secrets, There’s a Customer Born Every Minute. He’s also written many more books on marketing and business, to name a few, Hypnotic Writing and Buying Trances: A New Psychology of Sales and Marketing. His latest book release is titled, The Secret Prayer. Besides all of his books, Joe also recorded the #1 bestselling Nightingale-Conant audio program, The Power of Outrageous Marketing. Additionally, he’s also recorded the following audio programs for Nightingale-Conant, to name a few, The Awakening Course, The Missing Secret, The Secret to Attracting Money, The Abundance Paradigm, The Ultimate Law of Attraction Library and his latest, The Zero Point.

Joe’s marketing methods have made people millionaires. He’s been involved with every aspect of marketing, from traditional direct mail to publicity to infomercials. He is the president of Hypnotic Marketing, Inc. and is the world’s first hypnotic writer. He created a home-study course called Hypnotic Selling Secrets — and made $450,000 in 3 days selling it online. He’s being called “The Buddha of the Internet” and after his huge weight loss, “The Charles Atlas of the Internet.” Known for his outrageous publicity stunts, Joe received local and national media attention from the likes of The New York Post for “The World’s First Canine Concert”(http://www.canineconcert.com/) in order to promote his bestselling book: There’s a Customer Born Every Minute – P.T. Barnum’s Secrets to Business Success book. Joe is also one of the stars in the hit movie The Secret. He was seen on Larry King Live on November 16, 2006 and March 8, 2007. On March 6, 2007 Joe was interviewed on ExtraTV to talk about “Hollywood’s Latest Craze: The Secret.” He was also featured in Newsweek’s March 5, 2007 issue, story titled: Decoding The Secret: http://www.newsweek.com/secret-does-self-help-book-really-help-95559 On November 19, 2007 he was a guest on CNBC’s “The Big Idea” with Donny Deutsch: http://www.mrfire.com/n8gc For access to his current radio interviews, such as CNN radio, go to his Podcast page at: http://www.mrfire.com/interviews/ He is a sought out speaker who travels the world to such countries as Russia, Poland, Peru, Canada and Kuwait to spread his message on the law of attraction, “The Missing Secret,” ho’oponopono and much more. He was also a Keynote Speaker at the prestigious National Speakers Association Convention in San Diego, CA in July, 2007 and for Hay House “I Can Do It!” Conference in Austin, TX (2013). In addition to The Secret, Dr. Vitale has been featured in a total of 15 movies so far. Some of them include: Try it on Everything, The Opus, Leap!, The Meta Secret and his latest film is titled The Abundance Factor. Dr. Vitale discovered that there is a “missing secret” to success. He says many people do everything right but still don’t get great results. Why not? He says there are counter-intentions you need to clear. He’s created several ways to do just that, from his new Miracles Coaching® program (www.MiraclesCoaching.com), to the incredible method explained in his book, Zero Limits and the sequel, At Zero. He has also created a website where people can gather and direct their positive energies to create a positive impact on the world at: www.AttractMiracles.com. As seen in Rolling Stone magazine, on January 6, 2012, he has added yet another mega milestone to his long list of accomplishments by completing his first self-help CD for a new genre of music that he calls “Healing Music.” To date, Dr. Vitale’s complete music catalog consists of 6 singer-songwriter CDs (Strut! The Healing Song, Sun Will Rise, Reflection, One More Day and Stretch) and 9 instrumental CDs (Blue Healer, At Zero, Aligning to Zero, 432 to Zero, Invoking Divinity, Afflatus, Higher Octaves, Espresso for Your Soul and Calling the Four Angels of Ho’oponopono) with more currently in the works! Dr. Vitale’s style is inspiring and informative. He doesn’t speak so much as inspire. His mission is to help you achieve your dreams.

He wanted a business that combined his life-long passion for the sport of ice hockey with his ability to build websites and thus the Slapshot Studio brand was born.

He worked for a couple different fortune 500 companies over the next 12 years. He learned a lot about business and working with others, but he never quite felt like he found his calling. It wasn’t until the summer of 2006, when he co-founded a small real estate ad agency that he realized his passion for the entrepreneurial spirit. A whole new world opened up to him, but it wasn’t without heartache and trouble as the real estate bubble burst in 2008 and he lost all his customers in a span of just over three months. After some considerable thought and self-grief, he picked himself back up and dusted himself off. He was always attracted to technology and most of his friends and family knew this. He decided to get back into web development and he bootstrapped his way from a one-person operation to a thriving business and a growing team as you will see today.

Even as a young girl, I loved bringing a business to life and watch it grow. Other girls wanted to babysit, while I worked out the percentage I could charge for getting them jobs and managing them. A lemonade stand was not a “fun” way to waste a summer afternoon, it was a very serious business involving customer acquisition and profit margins. I was born an entrepreneur, and I believe you are either born that way or you’re not. I see an opportunity, and I have no other choice but to create the business capitalize on that opportunity. My husband, on the other hand, just wants a job (so I made one for him). After years of struggling through being an “employee” I started Web Impakt, which over the last 10 years, I perfected (if I do say so myself). I’ve led my team to launching everything from simple web pages to enterprise level systems. I’ve managed dozens of developers and designers, yet still have had to roll up my sleeves on aSaturday evening (after all, if you want a job done right, eh?). And most importantly, I’ve gotten very good at generating traffic and leads, not only for my business, but for my client’s businesses as well. Traffic and leads… attracting and cultivating that resource is what it’s all about, if you’re not doing that, then the engine of your online marketing strategy has no fuel to work. But if you’re smart, and place your focus on driving website visitors to make ONE CLICK and enter your world, you have a lead. Lead’s become client. So, how do you get that one click, and what do you do with it? That’s the easiest part, you come to me, and they don’t call me “One-Click Lindsey” for nothing! My hand-picked team at TrafficAndLeads.com and I ensure that my clients get the traffic and leads their business needs using proven techniques. Not only that, I have the muscle of Web Impakt at my disposal to fulfill any desire my clients have, no matter what. I am living a life beyond the wildest expectations of that little girl creating flyers advertising her “Babysitter’s Club.” Best of all, I get to spend my days doing the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do, helping small businesses grow. http://www.oneclicklindsey.com

H We are a family of five Aussies: Anthony, Rachel, Bella (13), Austin (12) and Aria (11). We are passionate about the welfare of our four-legged friends. So much so that we recently purchased and moved into a 40ft motor coach and are touring America for an up close and personal lesson in U.S. history and to raise money and awareness for animal rescues. Since only 30 percent of pets in homes are adopted from shelters, we need to make a change. Our plan: the Bathe to Save National Tour. OUR BONE CONTENTION Approximately 3.9 million animals (1.2 million dogs) are killed in U.S. shelters each year. One unspayed dog & her unaltered offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in seven years. Only one out of every 10 dogs born will find a permanent home. 60% of dogs in shelters never find a home. Many strays are lost pets not properly kept indoors or microchipped. All dogs should be treated equal despite their breed. There are over 165 million households in the U.S.; 79.7 million have pets. NO dogs (animals) should be killed in shelters. They truly can all be saved. As dog lovers, we’re passionate about the well-being of our furry friends and want to raise awareness of the numerous benefits of animal adoption. Bath to Save Dog Buss LEADING THE PACK Catering to all breeds and sizes of dogs, the Bathe to Save National Tour brings HydroDog’s traditional grooming services directly to communities, animal rescue groups/organizations, and businesses (especially pet-centric) across the U.S. to not only raise awareness of the benefits of animal adoption but to ultimately save the lives of dogs. EVERY DOG WILL HAVE ITS DAY The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals estimates 3.9 million dogs enter animal shelters each year. 1.2 million adoptable dogs are killed simply because there was no one to adopt them.Since one in every three homes in our native Australia has a family pet and 65 percent of U.S. households, or 79.7 million residences, are home to at least one pet, we are thrilled to raise awareness to the needs of animal rescues/organizations through the Bathe to Save National Tour as we travel across the U.S. With annual sales expected to surpass $60 billion in 2015, the pet industry is one of America’s largest. According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA), pet owners will spend approximately $5.24 billion on pet services such as grooming and boarding this year alone. As the Bathe to Save Teamrolls across the nation in the big blue bus and raises awareness, Pack Leaders, Anthony and Rachel, together with Kevin Harrington from the Shark Tank and other celebrities are reaching out to build relationships with individual animal rescues and organizations that support their missions. They are also the tour’s media spokespersons and responsible for delivering key messages while promoting the sponsoring organizations. BATH TO SAVE TOUR TEAM Anthony Amos: Anthony began his career playing professional rugby straight out of high school in Australia. While playing football, Anthony decided to use his downtime to start his own business and at 21, he founded a mobile dog grooming business: HydroDog. Within five years, HydroDog had grown to more than 100 franchises across Australia and was the first franchise of its kind to be in every state and territory. After the 100th franchise milestone was achieved, HydroDogimplemented a Master Franchise model and took the franchise system to the next level. This resulted in all state and territories in Australia being sold within an 18-month period. Anthony and his team revolutionized the dog grooming industry by designing and creating a fiberglass mobile grooming salon in the shape of a big blue dog and to this day, there is no other product like it in the marketplace. Grossing $10 million annually, HydroDog grew to the world’s largest franchise of its kind. At the age of 28, Anthony became one of Australia’s youngest millionaires. With the Bathe to National Save Tour, Anthony is focused on raising awareness of benefits of animal adoption while promoting the sponsoring organizations and serving as a media spokesperson. He is also responsible for reaching out to and building relationships with the rescues/organizations to schedule and implement washing days /Bathe To Save events. Rachel Amos: Rachel’s career is rooted in finance having earned her degree in accounting and serving as the Financial Controller for an international law firm representing more than 100 attorneys. As an expectant mother in the corporate world, Rachel saw a need for stylish clothing and opened a maternity store. As a woman, she struggled to find stylish clothing suited to her corporate environment and founded a boutique maternity and newborn baby store. Rachel’s shop quickly gained a loyal following with both locals and tourist, and its rapid growth led to an offer that generated a sizable profit margin. Rachel’s role in the Bathe to Save National Tour is to serve as an additional spokesperson for media while joining Anthony in raising awareness and building relationships with the animal shelters and rescues while promoting sponsors and ensuring the smaller members of the team reach their daily and event goals. Isabella Amos, 13: Isabella’s compassion toward animals is her driving force in successfully raising awareness of the benefits of animal adoption during the Bathe to Save National Tour. By documenting her travels and experiences with photos and videos via social media and a dedicated web page, Isabella will engage with like-minded kids who are looking to make a positive difference in their community. Austin Amos, 12: As a true dog-lover, Austin is ready to wash as many dogs as possible to help them find forever homes during the Bathe to Save National Tour. His cheeky, yet witty sense of humor will be evident on his blog as he connects with youths interested in helping or working with shelter/rescue dogs. Aria Amos, 11: When she’s not perfecting her cartwheels, Aria’s empathy for pets is evident in her sparkling personality. Always eager to help, Aria’s contribution to the Bathe to Save National Tour is to assist with the day-to-day operations while writing stories of her experiences and documenting the journey with original sketches. Bubbles Amos: As the official mascot of the Bathe to Save National Tour, Bubbles is the Amos family’s rescue dog. Bubbles will be sharing his experience and adventures along the way via his FaceBook page and blog.
