Calvin Correli is an artist, entrepreneur, and the CEO of a holistically focused, multi-million dollar software company called Simplero. Calvin is passionate about helping online business owners do exactly what makes them feel most alive and is currently branching out to bring all of his gifts, including his musical, spiritual and intuitive talents, into an exciting new service for entrepreneurs.
Calvin has been blogging since the late 1990s. A programmer by training and education, he founded his company Simplero after an epiphany he experience in February of 2008; namely, that we’re here to seek self-realization through entrepreneurship.
What started as software for his own online courses, quickly became a vehicle to empower other entrepreneurs who needed its support. Calvin believes that "entrepreneurship is about allowing the creative force of the universe to work through us and make manifest in the world whatever it is that we feel compelled to create, with that unique essence and vibration that only we can contribute. Entrepreneurship is not some mundane worldly pursuit separate from our spirituality. It is the ultimate expression of our spirituality."
In December of 2016, Calvin rebooted his blog as a vlog titled, The Calvin Show, wherein he shares his insights, advice, and personal experiences to support the success of others in finding who they are and loving themselves.

Lyn Slater founded her website and blog Accidental Icon in September 2014 because she was could not find a fashion blog or magazine that offered an urban, modern, intellectual aesthetic but also spoke to people who live “interesting but ordinary lives” in cities; people like herself, who are not famous or celebrities but who are smart, creative, fit, thoughtful, engaged, socially responsible and most importantly, clear and comfortable with who they are and reflect this in how they dress.
Lyn believes that fashion has the power to communicate at the individual, group and societal level; that it has the capacity to hold both oppressive and productive practices. Dressing can be purposeful and powerful. That is why Accidental Icon wants readers to think intentionally about fashion and to occupy their cultural space with self-awareness and purpose. A huge fan of “accidental occurrences” and making the most of them, Lyn also believes in serendipity, the kind that might lead to a professor becoming a fashion icon, for example!
Lyn as Accidental Icon is featured on the cover of Grey Magazine. She has also been profiled for articles in Vogue, Mexico, Harper’s Bazaar Brazil and Netherlands, Le’ Officiel Italia and Manila, Milk, Women’s Wear Daily, Marie Claire Espana and Brigitte.
Accidental Icon was identified as one of the Top 7 Blogs for Older Woman by Who, What, Wear and named as one of the Top Fifteen Senior Style Instagrammers to Follow by BuzzFeed.

He founded a language school in Japan that grew to establish locations on two of Japan's main islands and eventually in Far East Russia (then part of the Soviet Union). He also taught university in Japan and he was invited to be a visiting scholar in Khabarovsk, Russia, which opened the door for his school in that country.
Bill has taught community college, college, graduate school. and marketing in an MBA program from Buffalo, NY to Silicon Valley here in the states. With his two degrees – a PhD in Education and an MFA in Creative Writing - if Bill knows anything, it’s that he can teach you!

Bill’s latest title, Marketing With Social Media, is currently being promoted by Kendall Hunt Publishing to ALL of the MBA marketing programs in the United States and was recently adopted by a school with over 17,000 students.
Bill began blogging in March of 2006. His sites garnered enough traffic over the years that eventually other major sites asked him to write for them ... then corporations from Shanghai to San Francisco to NYC started asking him, "How'd you do that?"
Bill has been pulled into consulting, another word for teaching, and now works with companies at all stages, from startups to major enterprises. Bill has created the largest private online forum devoted to content and inbound marketing - forum.billbelew.com - where he says, "I can teach more people" and "Maybe I can answer the same questions less often."
This Bill Belew did NOT dress the king.
