HICKS (Miqael Persson) is a country singer and an accomplished songwriter. While in Nashville, he was able to co-write with top songwriters Anthony Smith, Dallas Rogers, Dennis Morgan and Sharon Vaughn. He met with his U.S. publisher and learned that a song he wrote ‘Cuts Like A Diamond’ on his last U.S. visit was picked up by the Little River Band. Not only did they record it, but it became the title of their new album to be released in August when they start a nationwide tour of the U.S. to promote it. Other artists such as Jimi Jamison (Survivor), Giant (Dann Huff), Bobby Kimball (Toto), W.E.T (Featuring Jeff Scott Soto), Grammy nominated Toby Hitchcock and many more have recorded his songs. Born in the southern part of Sweden, Miqael grew up with a dream of making a living with his music. Playing in local bands he wrote music, toured and learned to be a better artist and songwriter. He soon moved to Stockholm to pursue his dream of being a songwriter. His first cut with another artist was the Swedish band Barbados that cut one of his country songs. Hicks' latest single is called Hayride.
Country singer ALLY MAYSON won the 2012 Ottawa Idol competition. Since then, she's recorded several songs written by writers from Nashville and Los Angeles. All of them have been produced by Eldon J. Fox and Brian Fox - and recorded at Pebble Studios in Ottawa. Her latest song is called Kiss Me Like U Mean It. On the importance of winning the 2012 singing competition, Ally says "“My favorite thing about being on Ottawa Idol was meeting new people and getting the experience to practice and play with a professional band, without that experience I would not be where I am today.”
Today Art 4 All People will chat with Arts and Healing pioneer, author, and Muse, Mary Rockwood Lane about the importance of Art in all of our lives. As well as how she created a solid integrative arts and healing program within the Health Care System.
Mary Rockwood Lane is an Associate Professor at the University of Florida College of Nursing and Associate Faculty with the Watson Caring Science Institute, working in the field of creativity and spirituality in healing. She is the co-founder and director emeritus of Shands Arts in Medicine program. At a time when art was not integrated in health care, she became inspired by her own experience of healing herself with art. She co-founded the Shands Arts in Medicine program at the University of Florida, which incorporated art, music, poetry, theater, and dance into nursing care on 15 different hospital units. It became a nationally-recognized program which she developed and directed for over 15 years. Since moving on, she has worked tirelessly to promote this vision for a more creative and transformative nursing practice. She has disseminated her research in this field as the co-author of professional publications and several books, including Creative Healing, Spirit Body Healing and Path of the Feather. Her book Shaman Wisdom-Shaman Healing was a finalists in the health/healing category in the prestigious Nautilus Awards.
It's shocking how many poor salespeople worked their way into companies and how high the cost of failure is...usually above $100,000 per failed salesperson! Richard Abraham is CEO of SalesDrive, LLC. and co –author, with Dr. Chris Croner, of the book, “Never Hire a Bad Salesperson Again.” Mr Abraham has been President of three large companies and has invested in many others. He became aware that even the best training could not help many salespeople succeed. So he began to focus upon aptitude as the first step toward building a high performance salesforce -- SalseDrive!
