    Human Trafficking - A Survivors Story - Michaela Floyd

    in Motivation

    Michaela Floyd grew up in a very dysfunctional household. Her father was a preacher that eventually was kicked out of the church due to his alcohol abuse and was abusive to her mother. Michaela suffered through emotional, verbal and physical abuse at the hands of her father. Her mother finally left her father in Michaela’s late teens.


    Dating was very difficult for Michaela because she felt that every man would be abusive but while in college she married an older man just to escape her chaotic life. Early in her marriage her husband was very controlling and for the most part she was compliant but when she wasn’t it resulted in extreme physical abuse. The abuse continued through the marriage and although Michaela never denied him sex, he began raping her in order to show his control over her.


    After her husband began abusing drugs, they divorced & she moved to Nashville.  After seeking employment with no luck, she finally took a job as an erotic masseuse after being assured that she would not have to do anything she didn’t want to do.  She soon found out the company was owned by a prominent mafia family. She was trafficked in 11 states and 26 cities within a 3-month period. After finally being able to get back to Nashville and becoming an independent sex worker in order to support her family. But over the course of 15 months was able to rebuild a life for her family, attend counseling and eventually get out of the life.


    Michaela has become active in speaking out and working with other survivors to reach out to women still trapped in trafficking and prostitution. Eventually, she would like to do this kind of work full-time, but for now God has opened many doors and she has been busy educating herself about this horrific evil. She feels very blessed to know so many survivors and to call them her sisters and friends.”

    NO STONE UNTURNED-Steve Jackson

    in Entertainment

    The True Story of the World’s Premiere Forensic recreates the genesis of NecroSearch International as a small eclectic group of scientists and law enforcement who volunteered their services to help locate the clandestine graves of murder victims and recover the remains and evidence to assist with the apprehension and conviction of the killers. Known early on as “The Pig People” because of their experiments in locating graves using the carcasses of pigs (because of their similarities to human bodies), NecroSearch has evolved and expanded into one of the most respected forensic investigation teams in the world. New York Times bestselling author Steve Jackson, the author of BOGEYMAN and MONSTER, vividly tells the story of this incredible group and recounts some of their most memorable early cases that taken separately would make great true crime books. Following his participation in a NecroSearch expedition to Russia looking for the remains of a Russian noble in 2013, Jackson was made an honorary member of NecroSearch International in November 2014.

    Guardianship: Florida and Texas Lead the Nation?

    in Business

    Join Candice and Kevin as we discuss key legislation in Texas and Florida to answer this all important question of whether Florida and Texas are accomplishing anything but spinning their wheels in the House and Senate. Kevin and I both agree that Bills proposed in Texas and Florida do not go far enough to provide any meaning reform and are largely "feel good" bills incapable of enforcement because they lack teeth. If you want to know how valuable a Bill is, look and see how many people are fighting for and against it. I promise you that the probate cartel will be screaming for it and the citizens will too if the Bill is a threat to either individual liberties or the Judge's paychecks. My opinion is the Texas Estates Code is void because it fails to comply with the minimum protection guaranteed by the US and Texas Constitutions. Houston we have a problem!  Florida, you do too!
