Broadscast – Kathleen Baty, The Safety Chick

In recognition of National Stalking Awareness Month, the broads are sitting down with Kathleen Baty, Founder and CEO of Safety Chick Enterprises with a lesson in personal safety. Kathleen’s message: She believes that people do not respond to fear, but rather, by being empowered to make smart safety choices.

Kathleen, herself the victim of a kidnapping attempt at gun point by an obsessive stalker, teamed up with then California State Senator Ed Royce to pass the nation’s first anti-stalking law (SB2184). In 1997, she and now US Congressman Royce teamed up again to help pass the first Federal Anti-Stalking Law (H.R. 3230).

She’s spoken to millions of people through appearances on and contributing features to The Today Show, America’s Most Wanted, Inside Edition, Good Morning America, The Security Brief with Paul Viollis, and ABC World News Tonight. Kathleen and SafetyChick Enterprises have been featured in People, Time, Glamour, Redbook, Women’s Day and USA Today and she’s the author of two books, ‘A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do’; ‘The ultimate guide to living safe and smart’ (Rodale Press) and ‘College Safety 101’; ‘Miss Independent’s guide to Empowerment, Confidence and Staying Safe’ (Chronicle Books).

Kathleen is currently the Transportation & Safety Administration (TSA) and Homeland Security (DHS) Host/Moderator for our country’s new Anti-Terrorism Training and Education Video program: First Observer Plus. She is a member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), the National Association of Threat Assessment Professionals Conference (ATAP), the American Society of Industrial Security (ASIS) and the High Tech Criminal Investigators Association (HTCIA). Additionally, Kathleen helped create the country’s first stalking course for Police Officer’s Standards and Training (POST).

Broadscast – Marijuana For Dummies

Broadscast

Dr. Dina is a pioneer of the medical marijuana movement and the inspiration for the Nancy Botwin character in the TV show Weeds. In 2003, she unexpectedly entered the world of medical marijuana while trying to help a friend with cancer. Soon thereafter, she would open and run Southern California’s first medical marijuana doctor’s office, consult for and manage the first dispensaries in Southern California, inspire a hit TV show, and become the go-to consultant for countless Hollywood celebrities, politicians, dignitaries, and others, including a presidential candidate, a major Hollywood studio and the cities of West Hollywood and Los Angeles.

Named the “queen of medical marijuana in L.A” by Rolling Stone Magazine, she received her nickname “Dr. Dina” (she is not board certified) from Snoop Dogg for helping him acquire his first letter of recommendation for medical cannabis. Since stepping into the public spotlight, Dr. Dina is rapidly becoming a household name, having been seen by millions in the Vice documentary “The Real Nancy Botwin” and in a GQ web-series with 2 Chainz, where she smokes the world’s most expensive joint and has a $500,000 dab session. She is also the host of the popular podcast Cannabis Confidential on Cannabis Radio. Among her many accomplishments, including winning first place at several High Times Cannabis Cups, she founded Freedom Grow which provides essential support to people serving time for non-violent cannabis crimes and helped launch a compassion program in West Hollywood that provides free medical marijuana to the sick and needy.

Broadscast – Women Protest Letter to the Editor in Hilarious Way

Broadscast

It all started when a town resident wrote a letter to the Barrington Times about his dislike of yoga pants on certain women.

“Not since the mini-skirt has there been something worn by so many women who should never have it on in the first place,” wrote Alan Sorrentino. “Yoga pants can be adorable on children and young women who have the benefit of nature’s blessing of youth. However, on mature, adult women there is something bizarre and disturbing about the appearance they make in public.”

Now, the ladies of Barrington, RI and beyond have created a Facebook event, inviting women from around the community to a “yoga pants parade” Sunday at 2pm. The parade, which will pass by the writer’s house as they march, is expected to draw hundreds.

How much do we love the women of Rhode Island?

Thousands of professionals from C-level leaders to administrative assistants have benefitted from Sam’s unique guidance on how to maximize work/life success. She finds that spark within each of us and turns it into a fire.

Sam-white-dress1Since earning her undergraduate and MBA degrees from Harvard, Sam has become a bestselling author of four books, a writer for Forbes, a renowned speaker and host of a nationally syndicated call-in radio show. Sam’s fifth book, The Pie Life: A Guilt-Free Recipe for Success and Satisfaction, will be published in September 27, 2016.

Sam began her career in media at CAA, Turner Pictures, Nickelodeon and Ziff Davis. She later founded a personal branding firm and soon realized that she couldn’t talk to executives about their personal brands without talking about the elephant in the room: how they were managing their professional and personal lives. Sam’s passion for work/life optimization began.

Sam is consistently called on by traditional media outlets for her advice. She makes regular national television appearances on shows including NBC News, The Doctors, Fox and Friends, Access Hollywood, and The Today Show, among others. She has been featured and quoted in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today, Inc, Fast Company and Success Magazine.

She is co-founder of the LA Electing Women Collective and Senator Gillibrand’s paid leave coalition. Sam lives in Los Angeles with her husband and three children.
After working with thousands of the busiest professionals on the planet, Sam saw a common theme. The happiest ones were the most fulfilled. Happiness is not the goal, fulfillment is. With fulfillment comes happiness and greater productivity and better relationships.
What makes a fulfilling life? It is one that plays in six or seven slices rather than one or two, some combination of career, health, relationship, children, community, friends and hobbies. When we overfocus on one slice at the expense of the others, we hurt that one slice rather than hone it. What makes it easier to play in multiple slices? It is letting go of the guilt that drags us down and letting go of perfection. When you embrace the idea that the most fulfilling lives are going to be messy, it is easier to manage the bumps. Think of your favorite pie. It probably isn’t the perfect one, it is more likely the gooey messy one that is most delicious.

Life is like pie. Dig in!
