Author: Sherry Genga

Sherry was the owner and founder of Spring-eze women shoe inserts. Entrepreneurship evolved from her current 25-year career in the High Roller lounge at Foxwoods Resort and Casino. She has spoken in classrooms to young entrepreneurs at local colleges. Inspiring them with the skills and resources on how to invent and develop a new product. This philosophy led her to the Connecticut Manufacturing Resource Center program, which helps small and midsize businesses in areas such as supplier development and securing a manufacturer for their product. Sherry is married to Jason Genga and has two children, Justin and Nicole. She resides in her small town in Connecticut where she grew up.

“Growing up in a small town in Connecticut, I am a firm believer of everything happens for a reason.  My new story has a profound stance on the world. The more I share my story, the more I see a strong perspective of healing the delicate minds that are so unbalanced.  If I knew I could not fail, I would spread the word on paper and post it on every oak tree, every bulletin board and shout it to every ear willing to listen. I have learned so much about writing Barbara’s story and feeling her emotional pain that I have mapped out my own path for a more positive life. Our thoughts are like looking at our refection in the water glimmering, smeared, blurred and even upside down, sometimes effecting our minds to the brink of insanity. Our visions need to stay clear and target what is important without focusing on the negative. Valuable knowledge can be extracted from our past by absorbing our mistakes along the way. Life is meant to grasp at our experiences, learning how our impressions can change us for the positive after living through the heartaches and burdens that transform our future into proud accomplishments.

I have leaned that I have the capability to make my own choices in life. It’s how I elect to see, digest and live my life that matters. Realizing that laughter and smiles can inspire us to get through our deepest darkest days and free our souls from depression. Countless children through their own eyes individually witness firsthand how domestic abuse, depression, suicide and mental illness can cause physical and emotional suffering, affecting their mental state of mind. This can cause a sense of helplessness. “The Shattered Oak “ has many of my own emotions and fears that were embedded deep down in my soul. These came pouring out as written words inscribed precisely for a journal. Just like Barbara in the story, I know the heartache and pain one can suffer associated with my own childhood experiences. Domestic abuse, suicide, and mental illness all can be managed with the right resources if we are all willing to help inspire those who are in need. Barbara needs her oak tree to stay strong through the story. Just like her, I find my peace and serenity in nature. The calmness in the air helps me to understand how I can respect myself by discovering my clever spirit along the way and unearthing my inner peace. May my perception inspire you to take action and create a change for a happier, healthier well-being.” – Sherry

eye180Dr. E. Michael Geiger, optometrist, was the eye expert on the expert panel of the Dr. Andrew Weil website and on his 8 Weeks to Optimum Health website until Dr. Weil recently discontinued the “experts”, though he does forward eye related questions to Dr. Geiger. Dr. Geiger has led “chats” there and responded to many questions about eye diseases and eye conditions. He was the featured guest on the radio talk show of Michael Schwartz in Texas and another talk show in California where he discussed the information in his latest book, “Eye Care Naturally.” His book is written as an easy to read patient guide for information, natural prevention and treatment of some common eye diseases, some of which have no medical treatment. Dr. Geiger has lectured on natural prevention and treatment of these eye diseases including cataracts, macular degeneration, dry eyes and more in numerous New York City locations as well as in Atlanta, Georgia. He has also delivered a lecture on computer eyestrain which is a chapter in his book. He is listed on the Eye Site website as being in the top 2% of nutritional eye care specialists in the USA, and is the only one listed in New York City. Dr. Geiger is presently in private practice in New York City, but he devotes much of his energy teaching eye doctors throughout the US on how to add nutritional eye care to their practice. He regards this as the most important new service that eye doctors should make available to their patients. Dr. Geiger was approached by an eye doctor website designer, and together with him and a manufacturer of nutritional supplements he brings this wonderful new program to the eye doctors. He has created the program based on the information in his book for each of several eye diseases, and shares this information with any eye doctor that is interested in providing this service to his or her patients

hobbspixJohn R Hobbs started life in a middle-class family being raised with good values while being taught you have to work hard to earn a comfortable living. He was always being prodded to learn a specific skill so he could go to work and earn a respectful living working for someone else. John finally heeded the flawed advice and chose a skill that would make him a good living. He enrolled in a trade school but his first two chosen occupations were full with long waiting list so he settled for his third choice, welding. After completing the nine months of training, he never pursued his new trade because it was not how he wanted to earn a living. Still being nudged by his well-meaning family to do as society expected and not pursue and build on any of his creative ideas, he enrolled in a Junior Collage and majored in Industrial electricity. After school, he spent less than three years in the trade because it was not fulfilling and he decided there was more to life than working doing something he did not enjoy.

Many years passed before he finally found a trade that he was passionate about — horticulture.  Plunging in with no reservations he started being mentored by a well respected professional in the field while studying books and article from other top professionals in the industry. In less than three years, he was a Florida Certified Nurseryman Professional and a Master Gardener. During the years, that he was working, growing and learning in his new profession he was also a runner. The  combination gave him confidence, that made him believe in himself. Therefore, when the idea for a weight balanced water bottle system, Athletes’ Oasis® hit him he had no reservation pursuing his new found passion.

Unlike the Horticulture trade, he was unable to find a mentor; books or published articles that could walk him through the steps so he could bring his product to market. All the advice he found about  inventing immediately led him to third parties, which spent his hard earned money. Knowing there  had to be a better way he started thinking about what he actually needed next. He found many of the resources he needed at the public library. All the subjects covered in the books he studied are outlined in the order you need them, in The Secrets of Successful Inventors.

The experience John R. Hobbs gained by working through the invention process has lead to him to  become a business coach who helps inventors and small business owners move the products or services to market. John is also a popular speaker that educates audiences at entrepreneurial events, business forums, educational seminars, and inventors groups so they become inspired and motivated. He also is a product scout for Bob Circosta, the original spokesman for Home Shopping Network who makes it possible for many inventors to get on a shopping channel. John’s newest venture is as a published author of The Secrets of Successful Inventors where he saves the reader ten of thousands of dollars and years of time in getting their invention to market!

On A.D.D.:
The TOWNSEND LETTER for Doctors & Patients recommended reading A.D.D., The Natural Approach and tells us that this book introduces underlying causes of ADD and natural, rather than pharmaceutical solutions that help the body heal. Peiper writes, “Diet change has been found to be the key factor in relieving hyperactive behavior. Diet improvement results are almost
immediately evident, most within one to three weeks”
As the National Enquirer depicts, “Make up your mind to stay healthy for the rest of your life! Look and feel young again! Use the weapons against aging that are outlined in “The Secrets of Staying Young!”

Dr. Bernard Jensen says of Dr. Peiper’s book, “I am almost 90 years young and have followed a lifestyle similar as the author’s have recommended.”
