Dr. Nabil Majid



As a practicing physician for more than 15 years, which includes many years working in at the hospital, Dr. Majid knows first-hand the importance of good communication. In his profession, it literally can be the difference between life and death.

In the medical industry, it quickly becomes evident just how important being a confident, well-spoken communicator is. Whether it is effectively taking command of the medical team while saving the life of a critical ill patient, talking to love ones of sick patients, or discussing emerging technology and medical procedures with colleagues, conversing and leading with confidence is vital.

The same is true in everyday life. Confidence, patience, understanding, knowledge, charisma, can all be obtained and used to not only advance our careers and social status, but also make life more fun, worthwhile, and rewarding.

That is why he started Comuneq. He wanted to share his knowledge and experience with others so everyone can obtain the ability to convince with confidence, master the conversation, stay in control, and be the best leader possible.

He is a big believer in how Great leaders are not born, they are made.

My guest today is

Katie Lynn McDowell


Katie Lynn McDowell Bio in her own words


Bios are not my favorite as I believe that they are self-serving. As a result, I wrote this in first person. When I was younger my idol was Florence Nightingale. I believe that she was knowledgeable beyond her time. “And so the world put back by the death of everyone who has to sacrifice the development of his or her peculiar gifts (which were meant, not for selfish gratification, but for the improvement of the world) to conventionality.” I believe that the world revolves around healing. We are always striving for something and through that there is healing. Currently, I have a BSN degree. Soon after I achieved my BSN I discovered that what I went to school for was something that I didn’t want to pursue anymore.

The most influential acting instructor for me is Kimberly Busbee from Des Moines, IA. In IA I worked on multiple independent films. “The Vindication of Ronald Clay” being my favorite. Later, I got accepted into the Tom Todoroff Conservatory in NY and continued my acting studies further. Through acting I began to rediscover myself in a new way and I discovered the healing power of acting. I discovered that healing was not limited to being a nurse or working in the medical profession. Through acting I believe that I have the ability to reach out and heal people on an even larger scale than when I was an RN. When I walk into an auditorium or on set I feel encapsulated by a certain quintessential charm and mystery that each set holds. There is no greater truth for me. Acting is where my heart is and I encourage you all to go where your heart leads you and follow your joy.

Dan Lok, a multi-millionaire and serial entrepreneur, and an international best-selling author. Dan is considered the world’s leading expert in internet marketing and is referred to by many as the “Millionaire Mentor.”

In fact, if you Google “Dan Lok”, you’ll see his name is all over 1,000,000 web pages! (ONE MILLION) That should tell you something.

Dan’s rise to success did not come easily. When he first came to North America, it was quite a tough cultural adjustment for him.

With his limited knowledge of the English language, it compounded the communication barrier even more. He only had a few friends who understood what he was going through.

Most people made fun of him. School life was a real challenge – both inside and outside the classroom. Eventually, Dan dropped out of college.

His early career was marked by adversity and struggle. Dan got his first job when he was 16. He was a grocery bagger at a local supermarket, making minimum wage and barely making ends meet.

Quite understandably, that’s the one and only job Dan ever had.

Since then, Dan has only worked for himself. Instead of attending business school, Dan enrolled in the school of hard knocks where he learned firsthand the painful way of what works and what doesn’t work in any business.

Through hard work, relentless determination, guidance from his mentors, today Dan is a multi-millionaire entrepreneur, a respected figure in the Internet Marketing world, and a highly sought after business mentor, who spends the majority of his time personally managing his businesses and investment portfolio.

His reputation is well established in the Internet space and publishing field, having launched several successful internet companies. Companies under his leadership generate more than $10 million in sales a year, and tens of millions of dollars in revenue in the last few years.

Dan is one of the rare keynote speakers and business consultants that actually owns a portfolio of highly profitable business ventures. He is also well known for his keen online brand perception, social marketing ideas, business growth strategies, new product promotions, and email marketing genius.

Dan is the founder and CEO of Charm Junction, Inc., which was named Online Retailer of The Year by Canada Post in 2012. Dan is also the author of a dozen books that teach financial freedom and entrepreneurial skills, including F.U. Money, Secrets of Canadian Top Performers, Creativity Sucks, and Lies Salon Owners Believe, etc.

Because of Dan’s transformation journey to reaching the top, in just his early 30′s (yes!), he believes in giving back to the community, and actively seeks opportunities where he can share his real world strategies and proven business fundamentals.

Jack’s bio in his own words

My name is Jack Kearney, and although I am not what one might consider successful, at 63 I am a recently published author, and success is just around the corner. You say you're looking for someone with charisma, and that I have. I have always been that person who you notice in a crowded bar or party. I think the inspiration for my book alone, you will find very intriguing.

Inside Out  One Actors Nightmarish Journey of Incarceration

I guarantee there has never been a plot like this before

For most of my life I was a struggling actor. I appeared on such shows as Mash, WKRP in Cincinnati, and General Hospital. For a short time, I even taught an acting workshop. I was a graduate of the very prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts where I was part of the first graduating class in Los Angeles. After that I joined the ranks of the other sixty thousand would-be stars that acted in showcase plays, occasionally went on a professional audition, and attended a weekly workshop.

The women that ran my workshop got involved in an interesting experiment directing a group of prisoners at the Federal Correctional Institution, Lompoc, California, in a production of Short Eyes. Except for the lead character, all the roles were played by inmates.  Because of its success she was granted a weekend to conduct an improvisational workshop with the men who had been in the cast, as long as she was  accompanied by a male from the outside. When she proposed the idea to me, I was excited at the possibility of being part of something that unique and agreed to be her assistant. As it turned out, nothing of any real consequence came about, but it was a very interesting weekend that few if any will ever experience. I met some very fascinating guys, some of whom I got along with and others thatlets just say, I was glad that there were guards stationed just outside of our room.

After I got back to my regular life, a few years later I had a scare that made me think, what would happen if someone were to be part of this program and, by a twist of fate, end up back inside as an inmate?  Inside Out is that story. Danny Belson is a nice guy who could be considered a working actor. He has done a few guest spots and has a small recurring role on a soap. Using flashbacks, we follow Danny as he goes from a carefree beach-volleyball loving, pool- shooting, nice American guy to a convicted murderer serving his time where he already has built in friends as well as enemies. This is a book of fiction based on real events that happen to inmates on a daily basis. I believe that this is the first book to take an absolute non-criminal type and toss him into a situation where he knows some of the inmates already. Ironically, because of the workshop he has made some friends as well as enemies. When his foes attack him, his friends help to avenge his attackers. Readers will be tormented with this dilemma and hopefully be left with plenty to think about in their own lives.

My experience in the late seventies inspired me to write a script in the mid-eighties. It was to be my Rocky. So if you are looking for someone who has led a fascinating life, a bit unconventional, then I will be a very good interview for you, because after all these years I am going to be famous.
