Comedian Just Peppi grew up at a mission rehab for drug addicts and alcoholics. Her dad wasn't just the mission's founder, but he was also a Baptist preacher. As if that environment wasn't enough to make her turn out a little bit "funny," she was also the attention deficit, hyper-active middle child. You know what it means to grow up on a drug rehab with ADHD, right? It means YOU AIN'T GONNA GET ANY MEDICINE! So, as you can imagine, any hope of turning out normal took a flying leap out the window! Then, throw in a name like "Peppi", and you’re just baking up one hilarious concoction!
Comedian Just Peppi is a stand-up comedian, writer, story teller, jokester, emcee, wife, mom of two young adult sons, and owner of one spastic dog named Oreo (who still doesn't laugh at any of her jokes). But mostly, she is a lover of Jesus Christ, the One Who gave her life purpose. Whoever knew it could be so much FUN?

Take Action Get Profits with Michele Scism with her guest Martin Stellar & Mary Beth Stenzel:
Martin Stellar - Email marketing specialist, ethical marketer, ex-monk, former artisan, semi-retired copywriter. My mission is to help and inspire creatives, artists and artisans to come to terms with promotion and marketing. Teaching email marketing and ethical marketing strategies that work. Started as a copywriter when my luxury tailoring company bit the dust to lack of marketing, and quickly learned that marketing in itself isn't dirty or sleazy, but that it all depends on the individual. Moved from copywriting into teaching because I found that many customers needed understanding and insight into business more than highly persuasive salescopy. Mostly? Because I love art, and too many artists are shy to sell, just like I was when I was still a tailor.
Mary Beth Stenzel - I'm a Denver business owner who enjoys our active lifestyle here. Skiing, tennis, golf with my wonderful friends and family. Been in the merchant services business to business sales for almost 10 years. Includes being named salesperson of the year for 2 years and winning sales contest cruise trips! I've done it all from cold calling to equipment installation to Apple Pay and Google Wallet. The Merchant Savers is a business site to review merchant statements for lower credit card fees and best method to accept card payments. I started this business to add to my growing sales team and support. Love "selling" providing services once and then keeping clients and being paid monthly with customer support and telling them the truth.
