My first guest on the program was Tammy Modica, Founder and President of Aeon Life Theater.  Tammy, a lifelong theater fan since the 5th grade, founded the company and acts as a Director for the performances they put on.  She is a trained mechanical engineer and former High School Physics teacher whose love for the arts won her over.  I joke that I’ve not ran into many engineers who share her same level of passion for the arts as she does.  She was in studio today to promote her upcoming Broadway Musical, Big Fish, based off of the movie.  She briefly explains how the movie business turns musical on Broadway and how companies such as hers then get involved with them performing them in our communities.  Her production launches May 28th through June 4th at The Cuban Club which is located at 2010 Avenida Republica De Cuba in Tampa and tickets are on sale now.  Performances are Friday and Saturday at 7pm and Sunday at 3pm and adult tickets are $22 and children under 12 are $12.  Pick up tickets and learn more at www.cubanclubybor.com and also at her website http://www.aeonlifetheater.com!

In the 7:30 spot, I spoke with Francis Robles-Fernandez, Founder of Strong Courageous Women Magazine.  With a background in hospitality, this mother of 5 has taken the entrepreneurial dive into the magazine business with no background or experience in print or publishing.  This courageous attitude is just another reason we host these programs, we hope to inspire others to step outside their comfort zone and do what they really want to do.  She began work on this in January and will be launching in just over a month.  The magazine will cater towards Christian Women with regular pieces on areas such as beauty, career and family life as well as religion.  Her motto comes from Joshua 1:9 which inspired her to launch the magazine along with a trip to a writing conference, all of which she shares in this segment.  The magazine will focus primarily on print with some online articles and she is currently looking for advertisers and article writers so reach out to her today, francis@strongandcourageouswomen.com or give her a call at 954-588-0937 and be sure to visit her website www.strongandcourageouswomen.com to subscribe today!
