    Chis’mere Mallard was recently featured on Yahoo Finance and other major online media outlets, including Morningstar, Reuters, MarketWatch and CNBC.com and many others.

    McAllen, TX February 18, 2016 – A feature story about Chis’mere Mallard was recently seen on Yahoo Finance as well as the other major online publications such as CNBC.com, MarketWatch, Reuters, AP Newsroom.com, and many others.

    While currently a certified Speaker, Trainer and Coach with Author and Leadership Expert John Maxwell and Les Brown, Chis’mere has his sights set on bringing his own unique message to the masses with his first book, Quit Quitting. One of his themes is a discussion of why people quit when they’re frustrated by failure on their first attempt – often a result of naysayers telling them their goals are too big to achieve. The author’s call to action is about how to effectively “quit quitting,” how to refuse to give up and the importance of developing a success-oriented mindset that flows from the subconscious to the conscious mind. 

     His passion for sharing his zest for life and positive attitude by motivating others to achieve success has made him an invaluable asset as a speaker to students of all ages at schools and colleges. His success as an entrepreneur has translated naturally to more engagements to young aspiring entrepreneurs of like mind. Schools he has spoken at include the Covenant Christian Academy and South Texas College. His most recent entrepreneur-filled engagement was a group at University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. His success on this circuit – and his goal to expand to one-on-one coaching – has led to the creation of his life coaching and inspirational speaking company Chis’mere Mallard, LLC

    “In a nutshell, my purpose is about four essential things,” he says. “While some leave liabilities, I want to leave a legacy. Second, I aim to inspire others to pursue their dreams with passion. Third is entrepreneurship, growing my own businesses so that I can use my knowledge and experience to help others grow theirs. Finally, I am dedicated to giving back at all costs. Philanthropy ties in with my overall mission to inspire people. Behind all of those principles is the power of faith in my life. Whether you are a person of faith or not, you have to believe you can accomplish what you set out to. You have to rely on your passion, dreams and your WHY – as in, Why are you doing this? Everything comes down to faith and purpose.”

    Bryan Hornung recently hit six Amazon Best-Seller lists in the United States with “Under Attack.”

    Philadelphia, PA  – February 18, 2016 – Bryan Hornung recently joined a select group of business experts and entrepreneurs from around the world, along with Robin Robins to co-write the book, “Under Attack: How to Protect Your Business & Bank Account From Fast-Growing, Ultra-Motivated and Highly Dangerous CyberCrime Rings.”  CelebrityPress™, a leading business book publisher, released the book on January 14, 2016.

    On the day of release, Under Attack reached best-seller status in five Amazon categories - reaching as high as #1 in the “Cloud Computing,” “Network & Cloud Computing,” and “Computer Network Security” categories.  The book also reached  #2 in “Cyber Security & Encryption,” and #5 in “Computers & Technology.” Bryan Hornung contributed a chapter titled “Content Filtering And Employee Monitoring.”

    CelebrityPress™ describes the book:

    The wording "Under Attack" implies a dangerous situation - one that signifies we are currently under assault. In this book, the Celebrity Experts® showcased are in the vanguard of protecting data and sensitive information under threat - the threat of digital information being made available to unscrupulous sources, and at times just pure vandalism. There are very few businesses, organizations or even individuals, left in this country that don't use electronics today.

    The Electronic Revolution has been all encompassing. Remaining vestiges of 'old world' practices - like manually writing or recording transactions or events, or the time-honored tradition of 'hiding money under the mattress' - have all but disappeared. So, along with the use of bows and arrows and pony dispatch riders, these are becoming historical markers strewn along the path of progress. The Celebrity Experts® in this book are people who are in business to protect digital information. In addition to unscrupulous sources that wish to profit from competitive information, businesses also have to deal with governmental regulations that ensure both consumer’s privacy, as well as organizational transparency.

    Penalties for not adopting legislated governmental requirements in medical, financial and various other industries are severe. The information herein highlights the usefulness and ability of these experts - and their expertise is varied. We should not be surprised that electronic systems are "Under Attack," and also, that these Celebrity Experts® are not merely qualified, but more importantly, experienced in helping stave off the inevitable attacks that businesses, governments and organizations face daily. Using such expertise is a form of insurance, without which the cost of remediation can be devastating.

    After such a successful release, Bryan Hornung will be recognized by The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors™, an organization that honors authors from many leading independent best seller lists.

    A portion of the royalties earned from Under Attack will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the leading children's hospital pioneering research and treatments for kids with cancer and other life-threatening disease

    Brian M. Douglas, Esq. recently hit two Amazon Best-Seller lists in the United States and Canada with “Beat the Curve.”

    Atlanta, GA February 18, 2016 – Brian M. Douglas recently joined a select group of business experts and entrepreneurs from around the world, along with Brian Tracy to co-write the book, “Beat The Curve: The World's Leading Entrepreneurs and Professionals Reveal Their Secrets To Outperforming The Status Quo in Health, Wealth and Success.”  CelebrityPress™, a leading business book publisher, released the book on January 21, 2016.

    On the day of release, Beat the Curve reached best-seller status in two Amazon categories including #10 in “Direct Marketing” and #15 in “Marketing for Small Business.” Brian M. Douglas contributed a chapter called “Today’s Smart Estate Planning For Tomorrow’s Unknown: Your Best Strategies.”

    CelebrityPress™ describes the book:

    Beat The Status Quo! Those who wish to improve are willing to make changes, others are dreamers.

     As Henry Ford so aptly put it: "If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got." While this does not mean you have been unsuccessful, aspirations to move to a higher standard will require changes. What changes can a book like this offer? 

    Beat The Curve is a compilation of authors who have outperformed the status quo. Their fields are different and their approaches are varied. Their ability and passion for their work, coupled with their perseverance, have allowed these Celebrity Experts® to soar to a higher level. While they have developed their successes in different ways, there are the common threads throughout. Why not be guided by a mountain climber who has been to the top before? To quote the Chinese philosopher, Confucius: Success depends upon previous preparation, and without such preparation there is sure to be failure.

    With the expert help available in the pages of this book, you will not only learn from their successes and their failures, but you will now have their guidance to help Beat The Curve.

    After such a successful release, Brian M. Douglas will be recognized by The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors™, an organization that honors authors from many of the leading independent best seller lists.

    More About Brian M. Douglas:

    Brian M. Douglas, Esq. has always been committed to the belief that a person’s legal needs are personal and not just business. This is a cornerstone in Brian’s approach to law and how he serves his clients. In 2003, when he founded Brian M. Douglas & Associates, LLC, his vision was to create an entire culture that embraced this same powerful concept. 

    Brian received his Bachelor of Science degree from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he studied Mechanical Engineering while working full time as a manufacturing supervisor for a Fortune 100 Corporation. Upon graduation, he moved to Atlanta to attend John Marshall Law School, where he graduated cum laude and as class valedictorian. Brian was initially drawn from engineering to law because of his gifts for reasoning and logic—two qualities that are essential for a successful attorney. 

    Today, Brian is a highly respected attorney with a solid reputation with his clients, colleagues, opposing counsel, and within the court system throughout the state of Georgia. Through his firm, he has taken on very diverse cases, working with bankruptcy, real estate law, civil/business litigation, foreclosure, criminal law, and what Brian is highly acclaimed for—estate planning and asset protection. According to Brian, “Establishing my own practice has allowed me the freedom to cover many areas of law. This fits my diverse range of interests and benefits the clients we serve.” 

    A unique approach to business is a driving force behind Brian’s success. Valuing the relationship with his clients and knowing that he is a trusted advisor for life’s most important decisions. Brian stands out through offering concierge style services for his clients and having a no voicemail policy at the firm. When someone calls, they get a live person answering the phone and from that moment on, the relationship with a potential client has begun. He is also a contributor on Fox, ABC, CBS, and NBC, as well as contributor for Star Tribune, Small Business Trendsetters, Worth, and The Miami Herald. Recently, Brian appeared on the television show, Time Square Today. And now, Brian is an author, enabling him to reach out to more people about life’s most important legal topics. 

    Brian reflects on his life’s journey with genuine joy and how it brought him to Atlanta, and the practice that he loves. From day one, he’s enjoyed the area for its people, the weather, and how conducive it is to enjoy some of his favorite activities, such as golf and tennis. Today, Brian is married to a wonderful woman, Tess. They have two small children who make life a daily adventure, and are passionate about animal rescue and fostering, along with all causes that help promote it. Now three Chihuahuas are also a part of the Douglas family. According to Brian, “Life is busy, but it’s never been greater. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

    Justin Crawford was recently featured on Yahoo Finance and other major online media outlets, including Morningstar, Reuters, MarketWatch and CNBC.com and many others.

    Downingtown, PA   February 19, 2016 – A feature story about Justin Crawford was recently seen on Yahoo Finance as well as the other major online publications such as CNBC.com, MarketWatch, Reuters, AP Newsroom.com, and many others. 

    Drawing on his multi-faceted experience as an attorney, entrepreneur, operations consultant and builder of extraordinary businesses, Justin Crawford brings to his dynamic new venture, Agents of Efficiency, a lifetime of commitment, passion, high achievement and extraordinary adventure.

    Launched in the fall of 2015, Agents of Efficiency (AoE) identifies the time sucking, profit draining tasks that distract from their clients’ passion and core competency, then implements targeted solutions with their best-in-class service providers. As per the moniker of Crawford’s organization, everything is designed to maximize efficiency, the bottom line, and that often elusive happiness that far too often gets lost in the sea of those back-end responsibilities which – while necessary – have nothing to do with why the entrepreneur started their business in the first place. Or as he likes to say, “We do the boring stuff. You do the happy dance.”

    Agents of Efficiency provides strategy plus execution to struggling small business owners looking to unlock profits and growth for their businesses by re-thinking how they run “the business end” of their companies.  

    “My chief purpose is to remove roadblocks to personal happiness,” Justin says. “The motto at the Federal Academy I attended as an undergrad was Acta non Verba ­– ‘Deeds, not Words.’ We become a trusted partner in the trenches, and we force ourselves to prove our ROI every month. If we don’t deliver, fire us. That’s how confident we are in our results. We love working with small businesses because that’s where the greatest needs are, and where the rewards are the largest.”

    Blue Python, a Seattle-based EduTech social enterprise, launches an annual math competition for elementary school students. 

    "Parents want to help their children compete better as they grow older. Unfortunately, the regular curriculum does not allow that." said Deepali Bhardwaj, the founder and CEO of Blue Python. "We enable children to go deeper than the standardized K-12 curriculum and compete in a healthy manner."

    "This is what our children need! Our standardized education system does not cater to the needs of highly gifted or special needs children." said Sylvia, a mother of two. "Blue Python fills that very important gap for my children who are home-schooled".

    Blue Python is currently available to parents in the Seattle area. The company hopes to launch to a broader consumer base later this year.

    Nearly everyone agrees the iPad Air 2 is a remarkable product.  Some would say it has been lacking in high quality accessories.  RC has recently announced the release of one solution to this issue, the RC Leather 360 Degree Rotating Stand Case Cover designed specifically for the iPad Air 2.  Shoppers couldn't be happier with the news.

    February 19, 2016- Getting the most out of an iPad Air 2, doesn't have to be expensive.  Rising tech accessory brand RC, recently announced the release of their new RC 360 Smart Case, a premium quality 360 degree rotating stand case cover, designed to help protect the iPad Air 2, while making it a much more versatile and valuable product.

    “We are great fans of the iPad Air 2, but found some places where a properly designed case could help it become even more special,” commented a spokesperson from the company.  “With the release of our RC 360 Smart Case, we're meeting those needs.  We know this product is going to become very popular, fast.”

    According to RC, the cover is made of PU leather which helps to protect the iPad Air 2 from scratches and other damage.  The cover can be folded around the back of the tablet acting as a stand. This allows the iPad vertically for FaceTime and Skype chats and calls, or the stand can be positioned the other way around for typing, reference and other common uses.  The cover is designed to activate auto sleep mode when closed and to wake when opened.

    Currently, close to twenty different leather colours and designs are available of the product, all sharing the same very high quality manufacturing standards. 

    Early reviews have been very positive. 

    Andrew Jones, recently said in a five star review, “Ordered the case after reading reviews. It arrived very quickly. Fitting instructions easy to follow. The inclusion of a free screen cover, cloth and pointer/pen were an added bonus. As with previous reviews care needs to be taken when fitting the screen cover to ease out the air bubbles, I adopted the same technique as hanging wall paper.”

    ATLANTA, GA – Krystal®, one of the South’s first hamburger chains, is re-inventing tradition with a brand new menu of Country-Fried items.  The core of the line is the Country-Fried Steak Krystal, an item that came about as a result of a partnership with the National Cattleman’s Beef Association (NCBA), a contractor to The Beef Checkoff.  The Country-Fried Steak Krystal and other menu items are set to debut on Monday, February 22nd.   

    “Once we came up with the Country-Fried Steak Krystal, the ideas just kept coming,” said Alice Crowder, VP of Marketing for Krystal®. “The deep Southern heritage and history of the Krystal® brand lends itself perfectly to hearty, Country-Fried tastes, and so we’ve developed a whole menu around the concept.”

    Available at participating locations through April 24th (or while supplies last) the Country-Fried menu provides an innovative twist on Krystal® classics. The Country-Fried Steak Krystal® is a tender all-beef steak coated in a special blend of country spices, cooked to a delicious golden brown, topped with country gravy and served on a soft steamy Krystal® bun. The Krystal® Chik patty is topped with country gravy to create the Country Chik.  During breakfast hours, the option of a biscuit will be available instead of a bun for both the steak and chicken sandwiches.  For side orders, guests will be able to choose Country Fries, crispy fries topped with country gravy and crumbled bacon.

    All the featured items, especially the Country-Fried Steak offerings, are generating a lot of excitement. The Beef Innovations Group, who like the NCBA, is a contractor of The Beef Checkoff, worked side-by-side with Krystal® to develop a new signature taste. “Krystal® and the NCBA have an established relationship of culinary creativity and cooperation,” said Steve Wald, Executive Director, Innovation and Culinary for the NCBA. “From idea generation, through product and package design, to launch, the Country-Fried Steak Krystal and Country-Fried Steak Biscuit were both the result of a truly collaborative journey. We look forward to seeing people enjoy beef in a delicious way only Krystal® could have made possible.”

    About The Krystal Company

    Founded in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in 1932, The Krystal Company is the oldest quick service restaurant chain in the South.  Its hamburgers are still served fresh and hot off the grill on the iconic square bun at more than 350 restaurants in 11 states.

    Apryle VetMD (www.ApryleVetMD.com) believes veterinary medicine varies from helping pet owners become more knowledgeable about animals to improving the lives of work horses. Improving the livelihood of people in developing countries by improving the quality and length of life of working horses and donkeys creates sustainable health programs for animals by training local veterinarians to provide long-term solutions and establish regular contact with animal owners.  

    Apryle VetMD believes it is important to raise the profile and significance of veterinary medicine so that the public understands the importance of high quality animal healthcare; she subscribes to the concept of One Health, humans, pets, and the environment are all interconnected. She believes improved knowledge of specialty and board-certified qualifications is critical. Significant amounts of time and training are invested in becoming a veterinarian.

    Apryle VetMD is an education advocate for pet and animal owners. Improved knowledge of animal owners empowers good decision-making regarding a pet’s health. She believes easy access to information is just one of several methods to improve veterinary services. Information will improve customer service and customer education among animal caregivers.

    Apryle VetMD believes it is imperative for veterinarians to provide pet owners to receive high quality, evidence-based, technologically innovative medicine for animals locally. This effort will expedite and improve lab services and diagnostic methods available to raise the standard of diagnosis and care. She is passionate about stopping the mistreatment of working equids around the world. She is an advocate for improving the working life of veterinarians.
