Bud: “I started playing parties in college. I loved music and had a knack for it. Before I knew it, I was running my own business, Let’s Party! DJs & Entertainment, in New York’s Five Boroughs.

Sometimes, a unique and varied combination of circumstances, life happenings, experiences and pursuits leads to a career/business that is truly unique as well. That’s the case with me and my integrative holistic health practice, based in Boca Raton, Florida. With a Masters in Software Engineering and extensive experience working with big financial corporations on Wall Street, NYC, you’d think that I would be a high level IT manager at a corporation, maybe in New York City or California. On the contrary – I’m in South Florida, helping people discover happiness through physical and mental wellness. Read more>>

Karen Emery

My career had an unusual beginning. I was a stay at home mom with two young boys. One was in pre-school and the other on my hip. I was offered a job as a courier so I could take my baby with me. After a while, the owner of the company asked me if I wanted to officiate wedding ceremonies. In Florida, a notary public has the authority to do so. I said YES. Within the year, I had my own wedding company and officiated ceremonies. Many couples asked for other services and I learned everything I could about coordinating weddings as well as continuing to officiate ceremonies. Read more>>
