Dr. Monique Y. Wells is a multipreneur – she’s a preclinical safety professional, productivity expert, writer and editor, speaker, and travel professional. Monique began her professional life as a veterinary pathologist and toxicologist – a field that has provided her with the opportunity to travel the world. She moved to Paris 21 years ago to pursue this activity and after 10 years of working in corporate France, she launched a consultancy in preclinical safety assessment. She continues to operate this business today. To share their burning passion for the city of Paris with Anglophone travelers, Monique and her husband launched the travel planning service Discover Paris! in 1999. Today they specialize in private, guided walking tours and activities featuring African Diaspora Paris and gourmet Paris. They have also created a few downloadable walking tours. As a result of the recession of 2008-2009, Monique began training and mentoring her preclinical safety colleagues in productivity. She progressively opened new niche markets for this service, including travel professionals and women solopreneurs, and is currently focused on serving solopreneurs who have built 6-figure and 7-figure businesses. Monique speaks on all of the above topics at venues across the globe. She is the author of numerous print and e-books, book chapters, and articles on these topics, and also writes two blogs. Her most recent achievement is being selected as a productivity blogger for Huffington Post. For more information about Monique’s productivity activities, visit: http://gettingoveroverwhelm.com.

We're talking to author Peter Benjaminson, who penned Mary Wells: The Tumultuous Life of Motown's First Superstar.
EXCERPT: CHAPTER 15: JACKIE WILSON AND CARL DAVIS
In 1965, while Mary Wells and Maye James-Holler were staying at the Sheraton Hotel in Manhattan waiting for their luxury apartment to be decorated, Wells decided to go to a Jackie Wilson concert. Since she was now an international superstar, Wilson's handlers couldn't help noticing that she was in the audience. Since they also knew that she had written her first song for Wilson, they would have been terribly remiss had they not invited her backstage after the show. Wilson reminded Wells of how much he admired her singing. Wells reminded him sincerely that she thought he was a great artist and that she had admired his music for years. Not one to miss a cue, Wilson, who was separated from his wife, immediately invited her to dinner. She accepted, and they went out to a fancy restaurant. He immediately heightened his appeal to Wells by educating her on what he saw as some of the nuances of high living, a likely turn-on for the semi-fatherless girl from inner-city Detroit. When Wilson asked Mary if she would like a drink and she suggested scotch and water, he told her a lady always drinks pink ladies and raspberry daiquiris and ordered her one of each, so she could choose. After she picked one and drank it, he told her, "This is as far as I ever want to you go, just a small drink every night." From Wells's point of view, "He had finesse, he had ...class. He knew the best places to eat. He knew how to conduct himself as a gentleman." To top it all off, over the next few days, she said, Wilson brought her $25,000 worth of clothing.
Then the trouble began...

He helped found the organization, Vietnam Vets Against the War.
He struggled with religious belief for years, breaking away from the Lutheran church when he was 13, dabbling in a bit of this and a bit of that – finding that everything fell short because of the wishful, magical thinking that was taught.
But then Paul Mopps discovered Deism. “Everything clicked into place,” he explains to the World Union of Deists’ host Tim Wingate in this pre-recorded show, “and everything else fell by the wayside.”
Mopps is now something of an “evangelist for Deism.” He’s got Deism.com bumper stickers on his mailbox, on the front door, on his trash can and vehicles, even on his Harley Davidson motorcycle.
Paul has also opened the first Deist Reason Center in Washington State.
The Deist Reason Center will be open on most weekends. Nestled in a rustic setting, with a grill and picnic table on the premises, Tim Wingate jokes, “Just BYOB and BYOM – that’s bring your own Bible and bring your own meat.”
