Judi Perkins Biography

Did you know? The idea for the Ultimate Life Company started when Ginny Dye heard there was 70% unemployment in Newton, Iowa!

So… although we are providing you the tools to have your own business, we know that many, if not most, of our members have, or want to have, a full-time position working for someone else. We want to make sure that you are empowered and knowledgeable to find the best possible position for yourself. And that is why ULC is very excited to have Judi Perkins on board to assist you in accomplishing that goal.

With years of experience recruiting for positions from entry level to senior-level executives, Judi knows what employers want—and she’ll help you get your foot in the right door.

Why applying to every job opening you find doesn’t work, and how being picky about your career will actually get you hired faster.
The No. 1 thing you must bring to any job interview (hint: it’s not your résumé!)
How to pick a recruiter that will work for you and avoid the pitfalls of those who waste your time
How to increase your ad response by fixing the five mistakes you’re probably making
How to effectively approach companies that aren’t actively hiring – which is where most of her clients are finding their perfect jobs

As a career coach, she’ll teach you new strategies and show you why the typical ones so often fail. She has appeared on PBS’s Frontline, and has been in CareerBuilder, MSN Careers, Yahoo Hot Jobs, Smart Money, the New York Times, New York Daily News, and numerous career books.

Ron Mueller Biography

Ron MuellerRonald R. Mueller was inspired in 1999 to start his own home-based business, but became frustrated in attempts to locate information either in print or from CPAs about small-business and home-business tax deductions — a narrow category in the expansive tax code, but one potentially worth thousands of dollars to an entrepreneur or a start-up company.

Ron drew upon his extensive knowledge of business and government, and his wellhoned skills as an investigative journalist, to research and write the fully documented (yet easy for a layman to understand) book, appropriately titled, “It’s How Much You KEEP, That Counts! Not how much you Make” — now re-titled "Home Business Tax Savings MADE EASY!"

More than 10-million Americans who run either full-time or part-time small or homebased businesses (half of all businesses in the U.S.) now have a resource that explains the special tax breaks approved by Congress to help American taxpayers to start and run their own businesses.

Most entrepreneurs do not speak “IRSese” or “legalese,” so a huge value of Ron’s book is that is the ONLY ‘plain English’ step-by-step guide to small/homebusiness tax breaks authorized by Congress.

RON MUELLER, now widely recognized as THE expert in this category, travels throughout the United States introducing audiences of entrepreneurs and smallbusiness owners to huge tax breaks they never knew existed – tax breaks that will save them each, on average, at least $5,000 in taxes every year. When Ron delivers a keynote address to entrepreneurs, the tax savings, collectively, will average $5 million for every 1,000 taxpayers in the audience.

Ron Mueller is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy, and has earned a Masters degree from the University of Oklahoma, a M.B.A. from American University, and a Doctorate in Business Economics from San Francisco Regent University. He has had highly successful careers as a Senior Naval Officer and in International Marketing, Advertising, and Investigative Reporting.

When Ron Mueller is not on a speaking tour he lives in San Diego, California aboard his 60-foot motor yacht, which is appropriately named “Home Office.”

Steve Bhaerman Biography

You may know of Steve’s work in the guise of Swami Beyondananda. For nearly 25 years, the Swami has been a fount of comedy disguised as wisdom – or is it wisdom disguised as comedy? Noted author Marianne Williamson has called him “the Mark Twain of our generation” because the comedy isn’t just hilariously funny, but also offers sharp social commentary and spiritual perspective.

However, there’s another side to Swami. His alter ego Steve Bhaerman recently completed a book with cellular biologist Bruce Lipton (The Biology of Belief) that offers a truly heartening view of our evolutionary future based both on modern science and ancient wisdom. The book, Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here, has been called “world-changing” both by spiritual luminary Deepak Chopra and political commentator Thom Hartmann.

Christine Farlow Biography

Dr. Christine H. Farlow, D.C. is The Healthy Eating Advisor. The study of nutrition has been a passion for Dr. Farlow since 1975. Before she ever earned the title of doctor, people were coming to her unsolicited and asking for nutritional advice. It just seemed natural that the next step would be to become a doctor and make it her business to counsel patients in nutrition.

Dr. Farlow is a Doctor of Chiropractic with a specialty in Nutrition. She practices chiropractic and nutritional counseling at her office in Escondido, CA, and also does nutritional counseling and healthy eating coaching by telephone.

Dr. Farlow is a veteran at teaching people what to eat and what not to eat and how to develop healthy eating habits that last a lifetime. She has been counseling patients and teaching classes in Nutrition since 1984. She has helped thousands of people improve their health through nutrition.

She’s been eating healthy food since about 1975, after struggling with her own health issues. In 1984, after she became a doctor, she started teaching her patients, and anyone who would listen, about healthy eating. However, she became even more passionate about investigating and searching out the most important aspects of eating healthfully after her father was diagnosed with cancer in 1990. You see, her dad was a “health food nut.” It didn’t make sense that her father could get cancer. There had to be something more to it.

In 1991, when she was teaching healthy eating classes in her office, to her patients, and members of the community, participants were asked to bring in packaged food items from home. All the different additives in those items were put on a list. Dr. Farlow then researched each additive before the next class and handed out the list of additives with safety information and any harmful effects.
