Jennifer Hill asks best-selling author and international speaker, Gary Douglas, “How do you handle bullies?” Gary offers tips on expanding your consciousness and asking questions rather than getting confrontational. Gary also shares a question that you can ask yourself to generate greater satisfaction and happiness in all areas of your life.

http://www.accessconsciousness.com

Gary Douglas is a best-selling author, international speaker and a sought-after facilitator. He is known for his intensity of awareness and his incredible capacity to facilitate people to ‘know what they know’. He chooses to embody consciousness in everything that he does which inspires others to choose to become more conscious as a result.
Gary came with an exceptional level of awareness into the Midwest middle class ‘white bread’ family and lived the ‘Leave it to Beaver’ childhood. He has a very different view on life and realized that he was so different from most of the people he knew when he was only six years old. He became aware of this difference by watching people create their lives and seeing that none of it was about the joy and the possibilities – it was always about the wrongness of everything.

Gary knew there had to be more than this reality was offering since there was nothing about it that was magical, joyful or expansive. So, he began seeking deeper awareness to life’s mysteries at an early age. Along the way he uncovered a new way forward- one that would create change in the world and in people’s lives. He discovered that magic is all around us; it’s something we create – its consciousness. He recognized that the capacity to be more aware and more conscious was every person’s gift if they were willing to choose it.

Gary has become an internationally recognized thought leader in transforming lives and creating different choices – willing to empower people to see different possibilities and to recognize what is truly possible for them. He believes that if enough people choose to be more aware and more conscious, they will start to see the possibilities of what they have available to them and change what is occurring here on planet earth.

How many Hollywood hairstylists are there in Los Angeles? No one like Michael John (M.J.) Derricott, who is dedicating his life to his Makeovers That Matter.
No stranger to the idea of “giving back”, it was while spending his Tuesdays styling hair for residents of Gettlove, an organization that provides permanent supportive housing to the homeless in Hollywood that M.J. first conceived Makeovers That Matter:
“Helping these women feel better about themselves was such an amazing and fulfilling experience, it really inspired me to try and take it just a little bit further."
Derricott, a stylist for over 20 years, has worked in prestigious salons as Umberto’s of Beverly Hills, B2V and QVC personality Nick Chavez. Also a stylist to the A list, he was the go-to guy for the Oscars for two years. He is known for his appearances on E! Style Network “How Do I Look? He currently is a regular on The Hallmark Channel’s “Home and Family” for Makeovers That Matter, a subject that is much more meaningful than the fluff of just doing and discussing hair/hair products.
Derricott is the owner of MJ Hair Salon inside Salon Indo in West Hollywood where his mixed breed Maxi is at his side.

Jennifer Hill interviews Kerry Dolan about how we can transform the way women work. Jennifer asks Kerry about her company OptIn and how Kerry’s company helps mothers get back to work after taking time off to raise children. Kerry offers helpful insights on how moms can get back to work and discusses the resources that her company provides to empower moms in getting back to work.

Kerry is a mother of three and a visionary. She launched her career in New York City with a start-up in videoconference technology, which led her to set up and integrate the first ever satellite video conferencing system in the world.

In 2004, with twin girls on the horizon, Kerry made the decision to opt out of her career temporarily to care for her family. When her husband’s job called for a move from Los Angeles to Annapolis, she was there to support it. Four years later, after twins and husband and another baby, she found herself missing the kind of fulfillment she had when she had her own career.
In 2009, Kerry got back to work and created the KidsCare brand, the first of its kind. It is an in-mall childcare service that allows parents to shop or dine while their kids had fun in a supervised space. Since the opening of their doors in 2012, more than 45,000 kids have come through—clearly a concept that spoke to the needs of mothers with busy schedules.
When Kerry returned to Los Angeles in 2014, she teamed up with Leslie Dubuque as her right-hand woman and OptIn was launched.
