    RF Connect - Setting the Standard in Wireless and Mobile Solutions

    in Technology

    We expect our wireless devices to work everywhere. The thought of not being connected is disappointing to some and terrifying to others. After all, whatever would we do if we couldn’t access social media, email, or call to check on the kids as we walk to the next business meeting? Few people contemplate the reason their wireless device does work in building basements, hospitals, and many other buildings. Thankfully, in these instances, someone saw the need to increase signal strength and paid to have that signal enhanced or rebroadcast. RF Connect, based in Farmington Hills, Michigan, is the recognized leader in the design, deployment and support of high performance unified wireless systems, mobile solutions and applications. They set the standard in wireless and mobile solutions, design and deployment expertise through partnering with industry leaders across the entire RF spectrum. Join host Melissa Birnie as she talks with Jeff Hipchen (recognized by Crain’s Detroit Business Magazine as a “40 under 40” business leader), and currently Executive Vice President of RF Connect, to learn more about RF Connect, their services, and what sets them apart from others in this field.

    An Exploration of Opportunity: Women in Mobile/Wireless Tech

    in Technology

    On Monday, June 22nd, the Mobile Technology Association of Michigan will launch the Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council with a mission ‘to support women through access to educational forums, networking, mentoring, technical training, resources, scholarships, and more, with a primary focus on professional women currently working with, or interested in working with, these technologies in any industry.

The Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council will be the resource to pull together the various stakeholders and resources focused on this issue to connect talent, interest and opportunity.

    The launch of the Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council will feature an incredible panel of women leaders in the mobile/wireless tech space from a cross-section of industries to address this topic, as well as discuss their own journey's to achieving success in this field. Join host Melissa Birnie and guest, Linda Daichendt, MTAM Exeutive Director, to learn more about the Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council, what you can expect to learn at the launch event, and what this Council expects to do for women in Michigan to enable them to utilize these technologies for career/business growth.

    "Lightyear Wireless" #1 MLM, Lightyear Wireless Opportunity

    in Finance

    Lightyear Wireless is the #1 Rated MLM in the business opportunity market place. They are one of only a handful of MLM's that offer a product or service that every American wants. There are 280 million cell phone users in the United States. We are not trying to sell anyone on anything. We are just here to show people how easy it is to get wireless for free. And how you can earn massive residuals helping others do the same. Stop selling the ebooks, potions, vouchers, personal development, and overpriced travel programs that no one wants. Forget the cash gifting scams. If you are in Avon, Herbalife, Savings Highway, Dubli, Lead Net Pro, Pizza Box Formula, Family IQ, Lifepath Unlimited, Avant Opportunity, or any other MLM that you are not making money with then please check out what we are doing. We actually offer a product that people will buy WITHOUT the opportunity attached to it. How refreshing.  Join the top team as we explode this. We will be a billion dollar company in the future. Ride this wave and get a piece of the action. This will blow ACN and the other wireless MLM's out of the water.

    The Pre-Easter Special--How Wireless Are YOU?--4/4/15

    in Computers


    It's going to get technical.  Don't worry because Ms. Computer Lady has you covered.  You've heard of everything from wireless Internet to IP to routers to servers to wireless integration to wireless printing.  Actually, have YOU heard of these terms or not?  In case the answer is no to anyone of them, let all the business, nonprofit, faith-based, individual, and other entities stop by, have their notepads (for those who still use them), their smartphones, their tablets, their social media connections, have this podcast can be shared in the cloud/online drive devices, have touch screen tools, have wireless thumpdrives/jumpdrives hooked up early, etc. because Ms. Computer Lady is about to BREAK IT DOWN.

    Yes a lot is going on during Easter, though some will be referring to it as Resurrection Sunday.  Nevertheless, the dynamics of computers and technology continue to update and change how everything operates around us.  Will it stop?  No.  That's why this show is crucial and vital.  There will also be music featured that signifies the importance of Easter.  Spread the word and make sure to tune in.

    This Week's Energies Counsel Stillness and Inner Reflection

    in Spirituality

    ADORNING ...

    Fire adorns the mountain.
    The highest standards
    Are quietly revealed.
    Success is achieved without litigation.

    The mountain is still.
    It is your symbol for this moment.
    The mountain attempts to change nothing,
    Yet its form and strength of presence
    Brings awe with no effort.


    This is Lana ... and I apologize for Da Coconut Wireless Show's radio silence these past two weeks.  My Dad transitioned June 1st and the shock from his sudden passing took me and my entire family by surprise.  Such events have a way of teaching us the hardest life lessons with undeniable certainty.  My Dad's message to everyone is to reevaluate your relationships because each holds value and weight in your life.  Reinforce your relationships with clear communication and understanding borne of compassion in your Now because we shall not pass this way again on this part of our Journey.

    If you enjoy our programming and wish to learn more about our Halau, I invite you to visit us at https://spreadaloha.wordpress.com.  Have a joyous week!
