KMO

KMO has been the voice behind the C-Realm podcast for well over a decade. He discovered podcasting while driving for a dead-end sales job and within days, he was hooked (and his sales career, doomed). Since those prehistoric days, he has sat down for a conversation over 500 times – with authors, bloggers, activists, technology gurus, and fellow podcasters – and these conversations made KMO reconsider many of his earlier positions. He now describes himself as a "recovering libertarian and Singularitarian." KMO is the writer and illustrator of GEBB, a darkly comedic, scifi comic about aliens who love the Earth but hate their jobs. He is a life-long lover of science fiction, both on the screen and on the page.

Gail Boenning wanders, wonders, and writes. She's grateful for stories, books, movies, and television shows that have taken her directly into the hearts and minds of countless real and fictional characters. She writes with hope... believing words and stories carry magic to awaken soulful stirrings in our hearts.Once upon a time, Gail wrote down a story of her own. In so doing, she discovered that all humans are creative. She hopes her stories remind her readers of their own inventive nature. Gail currently writes daily love letters with the aid of her muses: Calliope, Thalia, and Urania. In 2022 she was diagnosed with and cured of breast cancer. She's currently writing and illustrating her cancer story for three reasons: 1.) as a gift to her caregivers 2.) to act as a bridge between patients and caregivers 3.) to lead by example -- patients have a choice as to how they 'show up' and grow through adversity. Gail is available to speak about her creative work and/or her cancer journey.

Unlike several other women that sought relevance before knowledge and end up becoming a disaster, she sought knowledge through education. She has a bachelor's degree in Fashion Marketing and Design from American Intercontinental University in Atlanta, Georgia. She has a minor degree in legal studies. City College in Orlando, Florida and she is on the verge of completing an associate's degree in IT Technology from WOZ U - University School of Technology. Yolanda Nollie is a multitalented and unique woman amongst several women. She has a fantastic competitive spirit; she is an amateur powerlifter, a competitive one. Talking about women doing perfectly what men can do, Yolanda demonstrated the truth about achieving greatness. She is a strongman competitor. This reflects her capability regarding persistence and resilience, which could also be seen from her four years' service in the Naval military as an E-3 The voice of angels brings amazing wonders, it puts peace in the mind of the listener and gives the depressed hope for a better tomorrow. The voice of Yolanda is like that of an angel whispering a sweet lullaby to the ears of those who are troubled. She is a fantastic singer and an amazing songwriter. The business world has never been a place for the weak, only the strong can survive the toughness and the rigidity it poses. She is a woman with the spirit of excellence and diversity of business ideology that could transform a business from the level of zero to the sky-top level. She demonstrated capabilities in the business world through her effectiveness in dispensing and carrying out her duties as an executive director and executive producer of two companies and two podcasts. Talking about the number of companies she is effectively managing, it is evident that she has an excellent multitasking ability which stands her out amongst her equals and aids her in the achievement of new heights faster than several other women. Yolanda is the Chief Executive Officer, Executive Producer of two Corporate Companies, and the embodiment of knowledge, which allows her to function well in several aspects of life. She is doing great with her freelance fitness & entertainment networking executive experts and Radio & TV Entertainment Networking Event Talent Search LLC. Helping others become better is one of the ways the world can quickly become a better place for everyone. Her companies aim to assist amateur athletes and those who are new in the world of entertainment but desire to become better and reach the peak of their career faster. She is working diligently and relentlessly to help them develop their business network, and health and fitness conditions. Far from what people would imagine her company to be because of her active involvement in helping young artists realize their goals. The company is not a talent agency or a talent management company. Education is an important key to getting anything done the way it should and this is because it is a way of getting knowledge of what you do not know. As a smart woman, Yolanda was quick to realize this important fact. She has a college of the entertainment internship program and coordinates sports athletes seminars to increase the knowledge of the upcoming athletes and artists regarding their careers. She also contributes positively by helping them realize how to make things work better. She also does talent search media development seminars, which can help young people discover themselves easily and follow the appropriate career path for them. She is also involved in many more life-transforming programs. Communication is an important criterion when it comes to motivating people about things and getting things done. However, not everyone can stand in front of crowds to give life-changing speeches. Yolanda stands out as an exceptional speaker. She has done some fantastic work in this aspect which includes being a keynote note speaker on topics such as the truth about the entertainment industry, health and fitness motivation, our families' health and nutrition e.t.c. Recognizing that change is a constant thing, and innovation would always come every day. She has ensured her relevance in her field and duties by learning new things and following the trend of discoveries on regular basis.
