Thank you for your patience
We are all on a path. Whether we accept it or not, our current path is one we have chosen for ourselves somewhere along the way. There comes a time for us all when we experience a definable moment and we make a conscious decision to change our path. These moments are commonly referred to as “life changing” moments. Regardless of what event in life may have brought you to this moment, make no mistake, when it happens there is absolutely nothing common about the moment and the decision(s) you ultimately make from it. This is a moment that determines whether or not you become President of the United States against all odds. A decision made at this moment in time can take you from living on the streets to a mansion in Bel Air. These life changing moments that come to us at different times on our journey are considered by some to represent the miracles of life. We are more likely to recognize and experience these moments as they manifest in our lives if we allow ourselves to be led. “What do you mean”, you say, “Allow ourselves to be led?” Somehow we must detach from our ego to live in the flow of life and listen to our heart. We are not distracted or deceived by the illusion of what we see around us. We see beyond our current state, our current reality. The movie, “The Matrix”, was ingenious in illustrating the concept of how easily we deceive ourselves with our perception. Last but not least, once we have experienced a defining moment we must dig deep for the courage to follow our gut instincts, make a decision, and take action. There is no such thing as a wrong decision. An opportunity missed is a miracle lost. A decision made is a path chosen and a regret unrealized. Better that than a dream. This is how we realize our passion and define our purpose in life. For mankind, this pathway to freedom is our JOURNEY TO GOLD.

Pauli Carman ~ Multi-Platinum Recording Artist and Lead Vocalist of Champaign. Pauli has been in the music business most of his life. “How ‘Bout Us”, Champaign’s first release, rose to #1 on charts worldwide according to Billboard Magazine, Pop Charts, Soul Charts and Easy Listening. He experienced further Platinum and Gold acclaim with such hits as “Try Again” from the album “Modern Heart” and “Off and On Love” from the album “Woman In Flames”. Unforgettable melodies are still receiving National/Worldwide airplay. His experience in the industry also included a solo career with hit singles “Dial My Number” and “In The Heat Of The Night”, as well as touring such venues as Madison Square Garden, Cow Palace, United Center, Chicago, IL, Sanger Theatre-New Orleans, Epcot Center – Disney World and many others.
Lewis Marklin Mash ~ A native Californian, started his career in music as a rap artist at the age of 10. Lew spent 15 years in the music business as a signed artist then started a record company, Project Records, in 1990. Marklin, as most know him, decided to learn television in college, interned at ABC News and the Los Angeles Dodgers, but not before working for three years at Fox Family Entertainment as a receptionist, where he learned the basic ins and outs of the industry. Marklin was not afraid to jump into the business. He produced his own show, ADHDtv in 2007, gave up his job at ABC and funded the entire venture with his savings. Before going broke he managed to produce 50 episodes that aired on cable across the US, and wielded incredible ratings that beat out many network produced shows, ever etching his reputation in the industry as a nuts and bolts producer that can take nothing and turn it into something. Marklin has now produced talk shows, a kids game show, Reality Shows, Sports Shows and most recently a religious broadcast and specializes in family oriented programming. Marklin heads up a media ministry in his free time, and insists that it is important to gather like minded media professionals together to remind each other that there is strength in numbers, and that Hollywood must recognize there are family factions in this industry who have a powerful and enabled voice to keep this industry in check.

Shaped from 30 years of her own personal development and experience, you will find the blueprint CJ used to change her life, and openly shares with anyone who is ready to make a change.

Dr. Daniel Vicars
Dr. Daniel B. Vicars became a chiropractor in the year 2000 because, like many, he was in pain and was helped by a chiropractor. Little did he know at the time he entered chiropractic college, that he would be able to assist far more than just sore backs and necks! One of his major passions in life is assisting others. So helping folks who have received little or no relief from the medical model gives him great joy, and has for the last eleven years. If you are reading this now, it’s most likely because you or someone you care about suffers from one or more of the conditions he specializes in. Contact Dr. Vicars if you are dealing with any of these chronic conditions:
Thyroid Conditions (hyper/hypo)
For patients who want their bodies to run like a finely tuned machine, we have created Wellness Programs. Your car needs regular maintenance and so does your body. We have many affordable Wellness Programs available and most even include massage therapy. It is much easier to maintain a healthy body than to fix a sick one.
Time to lose a few pounds?
Want to look and feel better?
Tired of fad diets that don’t work?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you need to speak to Dr. Vicars about his Weight Loss and Nutrition Programs.
Dr. Vicars provides patients with exercise programs to help speed up their recovery. By using in-office exercises along with take-home exercise programs, patients see quick results that are long lasting.
Dr. Daniel Vicars of Discover Chiropractic Hawaii has helped numerous people on Maui become pain free through chiropractic. Here are just some success stories from his patients:
“For years, I have suffered with pain in my left shoulder. I was taking pills just to feel better. On my second treatment, I felt wonderful and have continued to feel better each week – totally pain free. I now wake up everyday feeling great and not tired like before.” ~Terri R.
“Much Mahalos for the ‘new lease on life!’ Coming to you for these years has proven many people wrong. After my neck injury, I have lived with pain. And, I was told ‘you’ll never be the same again.’ But, with your help, I’m still as active as ever, doing everything I’ve done before and better! I have gained full rotation of my neck, and I haven’t had a headache in so long. I sleep better, and I feel more energized! I’m now boxing, lifting weights, and I even bought a long board!” ~Jeff
“Since coming to Dr. Alexander, the pain that I had to deal with everyday is gone. I wish I had come sooner. I work almost everyday, and now that I’m pain free, it’s much more pleasant! Work is fun again.” ~Don R.
“When I first came in to see Dr. Alexander, my lower back pain was so severe that only prescription painkillers could take care of it. I could hardly walk, sleep, or sit for short times. After a few months of Dr. Alexander’s adjustments, I’m off the painkillers completely, and I’m able to do my chores and enjoy life a whole lot better. Thanks, Dr. Alexander!” ~Mark M.
“It was not until February 2000 that I first went to see a Hawaii chiropractor to treat the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). At first, I was very hesitant because I believed the field of chiropractic was quackery. However, in my need of desperation, I sought chiropractic help. I was very fortunate to meet Dr. Daniel Vicars in 2002. He is a caring young man who treats his patients as he would his immediate family. When I started at Discover Chiropractic, my treatments were primarily for maintenance to keep my CFS in check.
Due to my dismay, in February 2003, I hurt my lower back. The pain was incredible. Any part of my body that moved caused unimaginable pain. One day, as I tried to stand up from squatting, a lightning of pain shot up my spine and I fell down. I could not stretch out my arms or stand. I stood hunched over (still in pain). Subsequently, I made a desperate call to Discover Chiropractic to make an appointment. The office graciously took me on an emergency basis, and I walked out that day with no more pain.
The following morning, as I got ready for work, I knelt down to pick up an item and again the pain shot up my back. I fell down onto the floor and stayed there for 30-40 minutes. Again, I went to Discover Chiropractic, and I walked away from the office straight up with no grimace on my face. Within a week or so, I was able to return to my normal routine of work and family.
I was rather amazed how quickly the treatments kicked in. If not for chiropractic, I would be bed-ridden recovering from back surgery. Discover Chiropractic isn’t just any ‘chiropractor.’ It’s one my family and I place our trust in due to the forthrightness, honesty, and caring of the chiropractors.” ~Bev S.

The Financial Whisperer
Pegi Burdick began her journey toward untangling her emotions from her money as Vice President of National Sales for a clothing company. It was owned by a woman and staffed by women with an entire client base of females. In this environment, Pegi began to understand the unique intricacies of how women communicate, grow, and interact with each other. It was truly an eye-opening experience for her.
Unresolved financial conflicts between the owner and the management team frustrated her, and she left for a more predictable environment, unsure what that would be, but open to anything that made sense.
Pegi became a mortgage broker – a position in which the relationship with clients is rooted in trust. As she learned the business, she was amazed at the ways in which so many women mismanaged their finances. The trusting relationships she developed with her clients afforded her a much deeper insight into the intimate details of their lives, and she learned that many of them were coming out of abusive relationships. They were burdened with house payments they couldn’t afford, and had children to feed, but were not receiving financial support from their estranged husbands. The stories and the struggles of her clients inspired Pegi to develop the concept for a business, Home Loans For Women. The company strived to help those women keep their homes and repair their finances, and 5% of the net profit went to support organizations that helped victims of domestic abuse.
These experiences, combined with several years of prior business experience, armed Pegi with the knowledge, skills and passion to create THE FINANCIAL WHISPERER, a program that helps women separate their emotions from their finances. Through this program, women learn to recognize and understand how and why they confuse love and money, why they have difficulty demanding what they deserve, and receive tools that are life changing.
Pegi released her newest book “IT’S NEVER ABOUT THE MONEY…EVEN WHEN IT IS” in June 2012. Throughout, she provides examples to help readers recognize that their behaviors are clues to the underlying source of their problems. Pegi helps her readers identify their feelings and gives them the vocabulary to describe them. This emotional literacy grounds them and helps them to realize, it’s never about the money.

Theme Song for Journey to Gold: ”Feels Like Gold”
Artist: Dana C. Lamb featuring Jaimee Paul
In the summer of 2008, Jaimee Paul was working as a backup singer for country music legend Wynonna Judd, and they happened to be doing a gig in Alaska (no, they did not get to meet Sarah Palin). Jaimee was sitting in her hotel room when the phone rang, and on the other end was Nashville music impresario Bill Gaither. “Get your music over to Green Hill,” Gaither told her. Less than six months later, At Last, the most remarkable debut album by a major new jazz-and-standards singer, is being released. A collection of signature songs associated with the great female icons of jazz and pop, At Last features the distinctive sound of Ms. Paul backed by Nashville’s own jazz piano icon, Beegie Adair, and her trio, as well as a sumptuous string orchestra arranged and conducted by Jeff Steinberg. Between Jaimee’s big, soul-drenched voice and Jeff’s big, classically informed orchestrations, At Last is an over whelming experience.
“For me, At Last was a very personal experience,” says Jaimee Paul. “All the great lady singers that we saluted were inspirations to me, and all of the songs we selected are among my innermost personal favorites. Some of them I have a very long histor y with: my grandfather was a WW2 veteran, and his favorite song ever was ‘Sentimental Journey,’ and we used to listen to it together. ‘What A Difference A Day Makes’ always gets me thinking about my wonderful husband, Leif (Shires), and the incredible day that we first met. On the other hand, ‘Stormy Weather’ never fails to start me thinking about all the lousy relationships I’ve been through – that we’ve all been through. ‘Whatever Lola Wants’ shows that ever y girl, I think, has a little Lola – the bad girl – in her.” She adds, “For me to sing live with Beegie’s trio and the incredible string arrangements of Jeff Steinberg, was just more than I ever could have asked for. This record was a dream come true.” It took less than half a season, from Summer to Winter, for At Last to be planned, conceived, produced, recorded, mixed and released, but it has taken the better part of a lifetime – albeit one that has not been particularly long, so far – for Jaimee Paul to get where she is and for this album to come about.
“I was always involved with music,” the fair-haired Southern Illinois native reports. Her parents are both musical: her mom taught music and piano in the public school system for 30 years, and her dad studied music in college before deciding on a career in engineering. “I like to think I use both sides of the brain,” she says, “mathematics and science from my dad and music and art from my mother.”
Jaimee’s love of music was instigated by her parents and then cultivated equally in both the church and school. At the age of five she began studying classical piano for almost ten years, and from the third grade on she also played the French horn in school bands (both the marching and the stationar y variety). For all these years, she also sang in both school and church choirs. Jaimee was also attracted almost equally to two kinds of music that are not as different as some people imagine: gospel and jazz. Both have a tradition of individual interpretation and embellishment, not to mention a strong rhythmic drive, which appealed to Jaimee at an early age.
In the eighth grade, Jaimee, who has lived with Type 1 Diabetes since she was seven years old, was given a solo with her church choir. In order to distinguish her performance from what the other kids were doing, she decided to change a few notes, in a way that was inspired by the soul singers she heard on the radio. Her solo, innocent as it was, literally shocked some of the more conservative church ladies. “It was a more hand-clappin’, knee-slapping, visceral performance style than they were used to,” she says. It was the first and last time she sang solo on a Sunday morning ser vice; however, she was permitted to follow her own star and sing the way she liked in the Sunday evening rituals.
Jaimee was also learning jazz standards and show tunes. “When I played in the school bands, the music I always liked best were the swing-based numbers,” she says, and she also played “Adelaide,” the female lead in her high school production of Frank Loesser’s Guys And Dolls. Ironically, although she was primarily singing, all of her music training was in theory, French horn, and piano – she never took formal voice lessons. By high school, she was teaching music as well; when her mother had more private students than she could handle, the teenage Jaimee began giving lessons. She attended Belmont University in Nashville. “I didn’t need a degree to prove that I could sing,” she says, “plus, I really loved the business side of music, so I decided to get my degree in that.” In addition to majoring in music business, she continued to pursue both gospel and jazz, participating in Belmont’s Gospel Showcase. She also interned for many music business companies in Nashville, including Sony Music (where she worked with the marketing team that helped “break” The Dixie Chicks). Jaimee also sang backup for a band led by Benjy Gaither, whose father, Bill Gaither, would later play a major role in her career. Jaimee was given an opportunity to audition for Bill Gaither at the age of 19, but she declined, feeling that she wasn’t yet ready. “I told him, ‘It’s not my time yet, but someday you’ll hear me.’”
After graduating Belmont in 1999, Jaimee worked part-time for two venerable music business institutions, BMI and CCM Magazine, while steadily working as a backup singer on recording sessions. At one point, her college music professor arranged for her to have an inter view with a famous Nashville gospel label. When she called to talk to her contact at the company, he asked point blank if she was black. Stunned, Jaimee had to admit that she wasn’t. The voice then told her, “Well, if you’re not black, then stay out of our industr y. There’s no way we could ever sell a white girl to our audience.” (The employee who delivered this pronouncement was fired a short time later.) Jaimee was shocked, but she decided it was God’s way of encouraging her to follow her other major passion, jazz and the Great American Songbook.
Jaimee has performed with such luminaries as Lyle Lovett and Wynonna Judd, and, as mentioned above, she was touring with Wynonna in Alaska when Bill Gaither called and instructed her to present herself to Green Hill Productions.
Three Green Hill releases later, Jaimee continues to wow audiences all over the world. She has just released a James Bond Tribute CD with Grammy Award winning producer, Michael Omartian and Jack Jezzro that was released last month, March 2013.

DANA C. LAMB
Dana is not your run-of-the-mill songwriter. Actually, she’s an elementary music teacher in SW Atlanta and she has become the recipient of an unexpected gift. “I always just wanted to be a music teacher. I would play teacher when I was a kid ALL The time. I wrote some break-up songs in my teen years, but they were horrible. It wasn’t until 2007 when a student dared me to write a song that I became an unexpected vessel for songwriting and recording.” It began suddenly in the shower one April afternoon when her most well-known song, “You Should Dream” came to her complete – lyrics, chord progression, string orchestration – all of it. “I jumped out of the shower and wrote it down on the back of a junk mail envelope with my son’s purple marker.” She knew it was destined to go somewhere, and it landed in the hearts of The Texas Tenors. The Texas Tenors, the most successful vocal act to come from America’s Got Talent, selected her song to be their title track of their next album, “You Should Dream.” Dana considers it an honor for this song to find its way to them. “They are extraordinary talent and for that little song that showed up on a Saturday afternoon to land where it has is just God, pure and simple. It was like it was meant for them. To hear them sing it, knowing where they recorded it, knowing that the Prague Philharmonic is doing the strings exactly as I heard them once upon a time, and to feel the soaring emotion that comes from the Tenors is mindblowing.”
Since then, she has amassed a catalog of over 70 recorded and mastered songs and has worked with some of the finest musicians in the industry including Luanne Hunt, Mandy Thomas-Sumerall, Emily Kimbell, Dana Berkey, The Royal Guardsmen and also for other children’s, educational, inspirational, and charitable projects. Though as a songwriter, she never really sits down to write a song. “They just come to me. I’m doing nothing related to music at all and they just literally begin to play in my head like someone just turned on a CD. It’s something that used to overwhelm me, but now I’m used to living with this gift. I just hear someone’s voice, or listen to their story, and then the song just comes complete. I am just the vessel that writes it down and does something with it.”
“And She Walks” became action from prayer. “I had read in our local paper that a friend that I had lost touch with was suffering with stage IV cancer as a single mom. Knowing that sometimes facts can get twisted, I had to reach out to her because only a few months earlier, she was a married woman with cancer that was reducing in size.” After Dana called her, the facts were the facts and her friend was both a single mom and facing some serious issues. “I immediately went to God in prayer and asked to be shown what I could do to help her.” Within four minutes, she was staring at the screen at a song that flew from her fingertips with strict instructions to record it and have all of the proceeds benefit Kristy and her family. “I don’t remember writing it. It’s like I said ‘amen’ and there it was. I believe that music has the power to heal the places and spaces inside of us that medicine never could. This amazing woman gets up every day, faces her situation with such courage, and does it with such grace and authenticity. This song is like God’s way of saying that He sees her and He’s with her, every minute of every day, no matter what. I was just dumbstruck by the lyrics when they were on the screen. I’m a good musician, but there was no way that I could have ever written that as amazing as it turned out.”
She immediately contacted Emily Kimbell, a local artist and former student. Emily was more than willing to lend her vocals to the project. In addition, Kristy’s friends, co-workers, and even her daughter sang back up vocals on the final chorus. “I heard ‘sisterhood’ in this song – we are all truly connected and are one. We need to love and support each other through all seasons and for all reasons.” And Kristy’s friends were more than happy to lend their talents.
“I just hope that this song brings hope, healing, and empowerment to lots of people who are facing some pretty serious stuff. Every day is really a gift and it’s yours for the taking. It’s up to us what we do with it.” As of today, Kristy continues to walk strong and with a mountain of courage, and Dana teaches just waiting for the next song to fall from the heavens.
Joy is a British born and bred singer-songwriter with true star appeal.
Music has always been Joy’s first love and after discovering she could play Rachmaninov by ear, Joy was soon composing, penning her first song at 11.
At 18, tours with highly regarded choirs on the Eastern coasts of Canada and USA ensued, including appearances on US television & radio. At University Joy began recording as a vocalist for a French dance label and it was this experience that fuelled her determination to pursue her career as a singer/songwriter.
With influences from such great singer-songwriters as Kate Bush, Jewel, Tori Amos, Joni Mitchell, Sarah McLachlan, Corinne Bailey-Rae, James Blunt & Damien Rice, Joy’s acoustic/pop/folk rock music sits just as happily amongst old classics as radio friendly commercial songs.
Joy has been described in the industry as “Kate Bush for the Noughties”. Combining her diverse vocal range with a distinct pianist style, she creates songs so melodically and lyrically moving that they are haunting in their beauty.
Joy is a full time musician and has graced an array of high profile venues, including headlining at London’s Bush Hall, Cafe de Paris and Dublin Castle.
She has performed her songs live on Sky Music Television, UK Radio, at Burgess Park music Festival and played 3 gigs on Hollywood’s Sunset Boulevard.
Joy’s debut album was produced by Rupert Cobb (Damien Rice, Snow Patrol, Ray LaMontagne) and released April 19th 2007 and available on iTunes.
Joy’s song ‘Get Some’ features on the film Soundtrack of ‘Manners’, a ‘Shortest Straw/What She Did’ Production set to be released this year with Adrian Mills as the main lead.
Joy can currently be seen performing live with her fabulous 5 piece band on the London gig circuit.
