NAWBO Public Policy and Advocacy Day

For Immediate Release

On June 3rd and 4th Julie-Mae Stanley, President of National Association of Women Business Owners – Central Jersey (NAWBO - Central Jersey), met with key Congresspersons and White House staff to discuss issues pertinent to women in business.

Capital Hill, Washington, DC --- The National Association of Women Business Owners is an organization that seeks to address the disparity in the business world that hinders female entrepreneurship by promoting those programs that will not only build, but also strengthen and hone the wealth creating capacity of its members. This June members of the NAWBO leadership council met in Washington, DC to advocate for greater avenues of entry into the marketplace for women owned businesses. Topics of discussion were:

  • Tax policy
  • Trade bills
  • Entry opportunities for women in business

Stanley and new member to NAWBO, Adanna Davis, met with White House Council on Women and girls and SBA Deputy Director, Hallie Schneir, as well as, Members of Congress: Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC), Rep. Gwen Graham (D-FL), Rep. David Joyce (R-OH), and Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN) to discuss small business growth and how policies could be leveraged to help accommodate the needs of women in business.

“What many people don't realize is that if all women owned businesses were merged globally, we'd be the 5th largest global economy,” says Stanley.  “That's how significant our contribution to the world is right at this moment. It's important to be heard in Washington because we are job creators and innovation drivers.”

Stanley is not only the Central Jersey president of NAWBO, but also the CEO of Global Ambicion Group, a strategic business and consulting company that helps businesses and individuals to expand their brands and explore international opportunities. Her focus is to help corporate, government and library entities with their global initiatives. For her, the trip to Capital Hill was more than just an opportunity to make the voices of women in business like herself heard on a national level, but also to better understand how the various trade agreements, such as the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Trans-Atlantic International Partnership (T-TIP) would effect those women like herself that work in export businesses and international trade.

“It was a real eye-opener for me,” says Stanley.  “I'm grateful to be a part of something so momentous at this time.  It was an exhilarating and inspiring experience that left us both awe. Truly educational and invigorating - I encourage ambitious business owners to get involved in public policy and be a part of the decision making process. Whether we make a decision or not, a decision is being made for us, so why not join the conversation? NAWBO opens the door, are you ready to step in?”

Stanley will be taking her experience back to NAWBO - Central New Jersey and crafting a message for women business owners in her area, as well as, incorporating the information gained into her plans for the new Traveling Mastermind Group she is creating.

Wine and Tech Innovators Gathering This Week in Napa


11th Annual Wine Industry Technology Symposium Developed for Wine Business Leaders, Marketers, Innovators

(NAPA, Calif.) June 25, 2015 – Technology leaders in both marketing and wine including Brad Rosen of DRYNC, Joe Rosenberg of Google, Paul Mabray of VinTank aW20 Company, Michael Pavone of quench, Brian Rosen of Rosen Retail for Adult Beverage, Josh Saunders of Uncorkd and Max Kalehoff of Social Code are set to engage and inspire attendees with the latest information and ideas this week at the 11th Annual Wine Industry Technology Symposium (WITS)set for June 25-26, 2015 at the Napa Valley Marriott in Napa, California.

Brad Rosen, CEO of DRYNC shared, “The biggest game changer is consumer expectation. The convenience of mobile technology in particular has set a new bar - MAGIC. If your experience is not magical, it is essentially useless in the eyes of the consumer. Immediate access to products at a competitive price and personalized service are table stakes. Consumers have no tolerance for the mediocre, little patience, and high expectations for special treatment. Like never before, you need to know each individual customer and cater to their needs…now.”

“While the information shared at WITS is the foundation of the program, the incredible tech-related experts from both inside and outside the wine business drive the event, ignite the sharing of ideas and really fire up the pace! This year we have a rich, multi-layered program of inspirational keynote presentations and idea-sparking round table discussions with experts on the first day, as well as the more in-depth breakout sessions on day number two,” said Lesley Berglund, co-chairman of WITS and co-founder and chairman of the Wine Industry Sales Education (WISE) Academy.

Paul Mabray of VinTank, A W20 Company said, “Technology and the ‘internet of things’ allows us to bypass traditional market research, which many times becomes stale by the time it’s complete, and opens up opportunities around location-based marketing, identifying influencers and our customer’s interests. Now we can learn in real time who our target audience is, what they’re talking about and interested in online, and actually pivot in the middle of campaigns, if necessary. We’re able to reach our ‘true market’ instead of guessing about a broader audience.”

“The Wine Industry Technology Symposium has always kept pace with the rapidly evolving technology of the day. It’s transformational as we produce this event year after year, to reveal the hottest trends emerging at the crossroads of wine and technology from marketing and consumer interaction to wine production and vineyard management,” said J. Smoke Wallin, founder and co-chairman of WITS.

To really use hand-on technology to take things to the next level, “Multi-rotor small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (sUAVs), commonly known as drones, provide the opportunity for exceptional high-definition aerial still photography and videography. The resulting imagery can be used by winery owners in developing marketing campaigns, while vineyard owners find aerial imagery useful in identifying problem spots and leveraging the additional perspective for general vineyard maintenance,” shared Jim Brammer of Soaring Vistas Media.

Registration is now open, attendees can view the entire two-day program and register at

About WITS:

The Wine Industry Technology Symposium® (WITS) is the focal point for thought leadership in the strategic and tactical use of technology in the global wine industry.  WITS was created in 2005 by a group of wine industry and technology professionals to advance innovation and to address the unique information technology and service needs of the wine industry.  The 11th annual WITS will be held June 25 – 26, 2015 in Napa, California.

New Yoga Knee Pad To Take The Industry By Storm


Sherman Oaks, CA, June 23, 2015 – KneeQi, LLC, a California-based company intends to take the yoga market by storm with its innovative new yoga knee pad. KneeQi™, which contains the Chinese word “Qi” (pronounced “Chi”), meaning  “energy flow,” is designed to solve the problem of knee pain during yoga practice. “While I love to practice yoga, my knees hurt every time I put them directly on my yoga mat,” says Netta Grutman, the founder of KneeQi, LLC. To solve this problem, Grutman developed a light weight, eco-friendly knee pad which cushions yogis’ knees during yoga practice.

“It feels like your knees are floating on butter, if butter was vegan,” beams Grutman. The knee pad is made of vegan-friendly and BPA-free Nitrile Rubber (NBR).

The KneeQi™ knee pad not only allows yogis to practice yoga in a more comfortable way, but it also solves another distracting problem. “No more folding over your regular yoga mat or fidgeting with your blanket to cushion your knees in the middle of your flow,” says Grutman. The KneeQi™ pad is designed to fit perfectly on a standard size yoga mat and to be left on the mat for the entirety of the practice. “Once your practice is done, you can just roll your KneeQi™ pad directly into your yoga mat until your next practice,” says Grutman.

After evaluating and assessing many materials, Grutman decided on the extremely plush and flexible NBR. “The quality of the knee pad material is superb, there is nothing like it out there,” says Grutman. In addition to being comfortable and convenient, the KneeQi™ pad is also 100% recyclable and eco-friendly. “I wanted to make sure the knee pad was environmentally friendly and attractive to even the most sensitive users, such as pregnant women,” says Grutman.

Online sales of the KneeQi™ pad have already begun, and the company plans to officially launch its product during the upcoming Yoga Journal LIVE! event at the Hotel Del Coronado, in San Diego, California, from June 25 to June 29, 2015. Event coordinators anticipate over 1,600 yogis in attendance, including yoga teachers and studio owners.

According to Grutman, the KneeQi™ pad is an exciting entry into the $10.3 billion yoga industry. “People come up to me and say they thought they were the only ones suffering with knee pain during yoga. I wonder how many of the other 20 million yogis out there feel the same? ”With the launching of this new product, KneeQi, LLC, intends to help yoga enthusiasts of all skill levels chant “ommmm, and not owwww” during their yoga practice.

Novo Tratamento com Comprimidos Para o Acne e Borbulhas Com os Melhores Suplementos Naturais - Venda Livre(Sem Prescrição Médica)

Até agora, os melhores produtos eram a base de tratamentos tópicos que eram vendidos Sem Receita Médica, para ajudar a gerir os custos. Embora estes produtos fossem eficazes a tratar os sintomas da acne eles não eram tão bons em questões de prevenção, porque eles funcionam através de tratamentos aplicados topicamente em oposição aos comprimidos, que trabalham de dentro para fora. Acnetame contém ingredientes poderosos alguns dos quais são suplementos como selênio e vitamina B5 e já existem diversos estudos que comprovam a sua eficácia, estes comprimidos também contém NAC (N-acetil-cisteína), que também tem sido muito estudado pois este ingrediente tem um poder e efeito desintoxicante nos nossos corpos.

Acnetame é atualmente o produto mais vendido do mercado e o produto na sua classe com a classificação mais elevada, este produto realmente funciona, e ajuda a clarear a pele,como é um produto de venda livre o seu preço fica muito mais em conta. Acnetame não é um medicamento e não é garantido que vá ajudar todas as pessoas com seus problemas de pele, mas as avaliações mostram que ele pode realmente ajudar as pessoas que não têem um problema sério de pele, nesse caso aconselhámos que visite um dermatologista. A Acne é na maior parte das vezes causada por flutuações hormonais dentro do nosso corpo que causa aumento da produção de óleo (também conhecida como sebo) em nossa pele levando a uma maior probabilidade de termos uma pele oleosa, poros entupidos e até mesmo uma infecção na nossa pele. Ao tomar estes comprimidos de venda livre para a acne, como Acnetame permite, que desta maneira a gente consiga reduzir essa produção extra de óleo e, assim, conseguimos reduzir a quantidade de acne na nossa pele.

Acnetame está disponível para ser comprado no seu website e também na Amazon. Se quiser obter mais informações ou ler mais artigos sobre remédios naturais e sem prescrição para reduzir a acne, sugerimos que visite o nosso website Acnetame pode ser utilizado em conjunto com outros tratamentos tópicos, que também podem ser comprados sem prescrição médica, e que não são prejudiciais para a sua saúde, nem para o seu corpo, pois apenas são utilizados ingredientes saudáveis, mas muito poderosos, vitaminas, minerais e um aminoácido que faz com que os resultados apareçam. É recomendável que todos os regimes de suplementos sejam avaliados por um médico, para ter a certeza que são adequados a si, pois nem todas as pessoas reagem da mesma maneira aos suplementos.

Os suplementos devem ser sempre ingeridos durante as refeições ou com o estômago cheio, para aumentar a absorção e a digestão. Com isto dito, Acnetame não tem qualquer efeito secundário. De fato o efeito secundário mais relatado é que algumas pessoas ficam com a pele seca, o que pode ser facilmente aliviado, baixando a dose.

Acnetame oferece uma forma saudável de combater os seus problemas de pele, estamos muito contente por termos bastantes clientes satisfeitos, por isso continuamos a dar o nosso melhor para que os nossos clientes tenham um exterior limpo e confiante ao longo das suas vidas.

Se você deseja ser um distribuidor no seu país, por favor contacte-nos através do nosso website ou Facebook.
