We started the show off with Jude Southerland Kessler, lifelong Beatles fan and author of Should Been There. Shoulda Been There is the first documented biography of John Lennon, a meticulously factual account housed in a fiction format. She spent over 20 years researching the novel, traveling to Liverpool seven times and interviewing most of John's friends, early band members and college mates. This facinating book traces John's life from 1940 until the end of 1961. In the interview Jude shares some great sotries about John and Paul, their friendship and their rivalry. This is a must have gift for Beatles fans and Lennon fans. Please go to Jude's website www.ontherockbooks.com to get your copy.
Next up we had on Tom Gustoff, regional developer for Massage Heights who just opened a new retreat in Sandy Springs. This location will be the first of 20 franchise locations planned for the Atlanta market within the next 5 years. Massage Heights is based in San Antonio and the executives there feel that Atlanta is a prime location for expansion.

We closed the show with Angel Van Wye owner of Caring Transitions of Metro Atlanta. Caring Transitions is the first national franchise to specialize in helping families transition their loved ones from home to retirement or care facilities. Angel explained that they help families when it's time to move parents or loved ones out of their longtime home which is typically filled with years and years of accumulated stuff. Angel and her staff come in and help the families assess what is in the house and assist them in making critical decisions about those items. Then they work closely with the family to help them sell or liquidate those belongings in a timely manner.
