It’s Melissa and Clarissa. We are here In the Limelight everybody! I’m thrilled because I read this gal’s bio and I was exhausted at the end of the first page. I don’t know how much more a young person is supposed to fit into their life. I’m twice her age and I’ve done a lot of stuff, but I don’t know if I’ve done quite as much as she has. Welcome to the show Melissa Vale, we’re excited to hear your story because we take our show from the entrepreneurial end of women and their stories, their triumphs, some of the difficulties and stepping stones; all the stuff that makes up that wonderful world of entrepreneurialism. You started as a model with Ford then you went to Broadway. Wait a minute, what?
In the Limelight today we have another extraordinary woman entrepreneur, a lovely lady working in the beauty industry. Welcome, Kim Wellen! You have an idea that has come back with a vengeance. I remember using these when I was younger they came and went quickly. When I think, K Beauty got ahold of this, it had an avalanche again of notoriety and fame. I’m talking about sheet masks, they are so glorious and so luscious. I’ve got five of them here in front of me. I cannot wait to try them. You are the founder of Mantra Mask, you have not only taken a sheet mask, which is already luxurious and lovely all by itself, but infused different ingredients with a CBD base. CBD, what is it? If I put this on my face, am I going to get high? Why don’t we start there and how the idea came about?
Clarissa here In the Limelight with yet another fantastic guest this morning, I’m excited to have a very good friend that I’ve known for a long time, Paulette Bodeman, who is known as a tantric yogi. Her book, “The Breakaway Girl”, she’s dedicated to me and it’s an autobiographical work, correct?
Paulette Bodeman: Yes. It started because I’ve been teaching yoga, meditation and tantric philosophy for quite a long time. It started between journaling and questions that my clients and students would ask. It morphed and became this memoir. It’s also self-help; in the end, it’s broken into four parts and dedication to the goddesses because they are our Super Powers. I tell the story about my writing coach where I kept saying to him, “I don’t know the title.” He said, “Just keep writing, the book will tell you” and the book told me. One day I’m hiking with my husband in northern Arizona and we’re talking about the book and sections. We were talking about how my mom at different periods of my life called me ‘the black sheep’ of the family. When we were hiking away I thought, ‘I was never the black sheep of the family. I was the breakaway girl.” and I was like, “Oh gosh, that’s it!”.

Welcome everyone, you are In the Limelight! I have a special influencer for you, a lovely lady coming in from one of my favorite cities, Atlanta, Georgia.
Sharron Clear: Hello, everybody!
Clarissa: Let’s get started at the beginning. You’re a fashionista and an influencer on Instagram. Before we get to that, I want to know about 4-year-old Sharron when she was padding around the house in her mommy’s high heels and asking for a purse to accessorize. We all loved to play dress up. Tell us about your dress-up days.
Clarissa: I’m thrilled to have here a really good friend, a woman’s advocate, which is why I love her. We all should love her three times as much because of all the work that she has and continues to do for women and girls all over the world. She’s a filmmaker and author with a phenomenal story, Tess Cacciatore. Welcome! I love saying Cacciatore, do you know what it means?
Tess Cacciatore: Yes, the Hunter. I went as Teresa Hunter long ago. I’m still registered with Screen Actors Guild as that name. When long Italian ethnic names weren’t popular. But thank you, I feel so welcome.

She is one of the sponsors of In the Limelight for videos, podcasts and the magazine. I wanted to make sure that we fully explain to everyone what the diet is and what it isn’t. Your three steps: weight-loss, stabilization and maintenance – let’s start with the weight-loss. You talk about acupressure. You talk about balanced nutrition and Qigong breathing. The floor is yours, honey.
