Today we talked to Joyce Bone, an accomplished business woman and published author who’s recognized nationally as an expert in entrepreneurialism and real estate. She’s been featured on TV, books and magazines such as Money, Kiplinger’s and Millionaire Blueprints. She’s appeared on CNBC’s The Squawk Box and with Peggy Klaus on The Excellent Women’s Club.

As an entrepreneur and mom, she moves seamlessly from Board room to ball fields having created several successful businesses while raising her three boys with her husband, Alan. At 28, she co-founded EarthCare, an environmental company which went from a start up to NASDAQ traded enterprise (ECCO) within eighteen months ultimately achieving $125 million in annual revenues.

In 2000, desiring a family friendly business she could involve her kids in, Joyce created Emerald Real Estate, LLC managing a large portfolio in residential and commercial property. A few of her investor specialties include short sales, pre-foreclosures and rehab projects.

Joyce’s latest venture is a complimentary blend of her love for all things entrepreneurial and her sisterhood with other women. One in every ten adult women is a business owner. The Millionaire Mom membership site is designed to support mothers in the unique challenges of raising a family and a business at the same time. The site not only offers a forum for communicating advice, insights and a place to commune with other like-minded moms, it also provides concrete business advice from millionaire moms who have “been there, done that” and achieved phenomenal success in the process. Our goal is to help each woman become accomplished and profitable in her own venture-one family at a time.

Swan, LLC is Joyce’s business consulting firm. She consults with small to mid-size companies and executives. Joyce can help a company improve its marketing and sales, increase profitability, identify and solve specific problems. Having managed 350 employees herself she understands the dynamics and challenges involved in creating a synergistic environment that supports the various divisions of business. She is adept at coordinating teamwork between traditionally at odd divisions such as sales and operations and helping employees overcome their fear of change.

Joyce is a sought after speaker and will soon announce the release of her book called, “Millionaire Mom: The Art of Raising a Business and a Family at The Same Time.”

What makes Joyce Bone unique is not only her uncommon business story but her enthusiasm and the belief that each person can create the ideal life for them self. She has the ability to help others take seemingly unattainable goals and make them reachable. It is her greatest pleasure helping individuals and businesses become more efficient and successful.

Today we talked to Joel Nunez founder of ImHonest.com. ImHONEST.com is a non-traditional lost and found service that provides identification and recovery for items of value. In addition to offering an affordable and user friendly solution for owners to proactively label and register their valuables, ImHONEST.com makes it easy for the finders of lost items to act on their honesty.

ImHONEST.com was founded in 2004 by international marketing executive Joël A.Núñez, after a frantic search for his missing wallet drove him to create a solution that rewards honesty and donates a portion of proceeds to not-for-profit organizations.

The issue of finding lost valuables is becoming growing in importance. According to the Consumer Electronics Association, the average American household now owns 26 consumer electronics products. MP3 players, digital cameras, and notebook computers – all easily lost or misplaced – are three of the top five fastest-growing product segments in the study. Unfortunately, as the number of portable electronic devices continues to grow, so too does the risk of losing them. In fact, a global survey of 900 taxi drivers by mobile devices security firm Pointsec showed that thousands of mobile phones, PDAs and laptops are forgotten in taxis every day.

Two of the most common reasons that lost items are not returned to their owners are: Inability to identify the owner of the lost item and Lack of an easy way to return the found item

The ImHONEST.com system, with its user-friendly label registration and reporting system, solves both of these issues. ImHONEST.com makes it easy for finders of lost items to return the items to their owners by providing:

Personalized labels containing a unique ID code
Choice of toll-free and online “found item” reporting
Over 4,000 drop-off locations at all of The UPS Store® locations
Pick-up service from any residence or business location
Support for international shipping of found items
A gift rewarding the finder’s honesty
For more information about Joel and his company please go to his website www.imhonest.com. And for more stories about honest people please check out his blog www.honestyblog.com

This is a Southern-style social networking site. Everybody gets his or her own profile to customize, and everybody’s invited to the party: mingle with other members, hobnob with artists, share videos, share opinions. For more information about advertising on Jay and Jake’s new website or if you just want to stop by for a spell and visit please go to www.AllYall.TV
We also had on Grayson Daughters owner of Waysouth Media. She produces and co-stars in the web show TrueGritz .

They endeavor to entice viewers and subscribers with a mix of low and highbrow cultural offerings – each yummy morsel chatted about, digitized and presented in short easily digestible and enjoyable bites.

When Grayson isn’t working on TrueGritz she is a thought leader in new technology. She is an experienced and thoughtful writer, Internet content developer and video/broadcast producer. She’s capable of taking media and communication projects through every stage of development and production. She has over eighteen years of news and corporate experience developing and marketing video, print, broadcast and Internet communications.

Today we talked to some of Atlanta’s leading business owners who are doing some very creative things in their respective industries.

First up we had on Tunstall Rushton President and CEO of Benevolink, a new movement in corporate giving that links individuals, corporations and nonprofit organizations to improve communities.
The Benevolink program helps consumers give to their favorite charities, including schools, religious, arts and cultural organizations and other causes our consumer members really care about, through the act of shopping . It also helps businesses increase sales, profits and market share, while forming bonds with consumers. And lastly it helps charities generate additional, unrestricted revenue on a year-round basis while adding value for their supporters

Now, the simple act of shopping — when coupled with the power of ‘pooled giving’ and consumer choice — creates a win-win-win scenario for consumers, businesses and charitable causes. Our vision is to significantly increase the funding capacity over time for more than one million nonprofit organizations making a difference in their communities across the United States. For more information please check out their website www.benevolink.com

Next up we had on Theresa Barber with FranChoice.

Theresa Barber’s diverse experience in business and franchising gives her the expertise to carefully guide entrepreneurs in the sometimes-difficult path of choosing the best franchise for them.

For eight years Ms. Barber managed a multi-million dollar worldwide tour company, which gave her extensive experience in management, finance, sales, and marketing. Her love of travel brought her into the franchising arena in 1996 when she joined Uniglobe Travel as a Franchise Advisor, becoming a top performer early on. She accepted the role of Manager of Business Development when she moved from New England to Georgia. Here she worked directly with franchisees in the Northeast and Southeast regions to help them achieve their business goals. She advised them in areas of staffing, marketing, and budgeting for growth. Ms. Barber conducted regular regional meetings with franchisees, trained owners and employees in technology, customer relations, and franchise “best practices.” Her main focus prior to moving back into sales as an Area Developer with Uniglobe was “hand holding” the new franchisees for a smooth transition into ownership.

In 2000, Ms. Barber was recruited by Netspace to spearhead the franchise sales department of a brand new technology franchise. With her strong sales and management skills, and the love of the internet motivating her, she soon became the national leader in franchise sales, and helped build a very successful franchise organization. She assisted in developing internal processes, and trained new franchisees in technology, sales, and marketing.

Today, Theresa Barber utilizes the skills that she has acquired over the years to help individuals find a perfect match in the franchising arena that compliments their own skills and allow them to achieve their goals. If you are thinking about buying a franchise you should give Theresa a call and take her up on her free consultation she can save you some time and some money. For more info please check out her website http://tbarber.franchoice.com
And last but not least we had on Bart Foster CEO and Founder of SoloHealth, an early stage company positioned to capitalize on the growing consumer preference for self-directed health care services.

Its first product, EyeSiteTM, is an automated vision-testing kiosk, which allows consumers to quickly and efficiently check their vision without assistance. SoloHealth is a spin-out venture originating from CIBA Vision, the eye care unit of Novartis AG.
As consumers become more accustomed to many types of fast and efficient self-service transactions, (ATMs,, airline check-in, photos, etc.) and with their growing knowledge and concern about health, it is inevitable that more people will embrace self-directed health care. With EyeSiteTM as the entry product, our goal is to become a world leader in self-service health screening and efficient referral to health care providers.

According to the American Optometric Association, the average person only visits an eye care professional every 36-48 months, about half as often as recommended.

Because eyesight usually deteriorates very slowly and can easily go unnoticed, many people don’t realize they could benefit from vision correction and the importance of regular exams. The EyeSiteTM self-service kiosk, located in high-traffic locations, will entice individuals to assess their vision more often, resulting in greater utilization of services from eye care professionals and more sales of vision care products. For more information about Bart and his company please go to his website www.solo-health.com
