Cheri on KSKQ!

A couple of weeks ago, I had the wonderful opportunity to join Gary Einhorn on his radio show “Your Entrepreneurial Ear.”  I thought it might be fun to post a recording of the show here.  It’s not the entire show, but it is most of it!  It was great fun and I hope to have more opportunities like this!

95-Year Old Man Still Playing Jazz!

I came across this article the other day and wanted to share it with everyone!  The gentleman, Edward Hardy, suffers from dementia and lives in a nursing home in England.  In his prime, he was a jazz pianist, and told his caregivers that his only wish was to play in a jazz band again. Through amazing efforts of the nursing home, along with wonderful volunteer musicians, Mr. Hardy got his wish!  

One of the many wonderful aspects of this story is the fact that, through Mr. Hardy’s dementia, he has retained all his musical abilities.  Recent studies have shown that even simply listening to music activates EVERY part of the brain (unlike any other activity which focuses on one part only); when the subjects were playing instruments, the brain lit up like fireworks on the 4th of July!

I encourage you to click on the link below to read the short article and watch the attached video to get the full story.

Cheri on the Radio!!!

I am delighted to be a guest on KSKQ’s “Your Entrepreneurial Ear”, hosted by Gary Einhorn, on May 11, 2016, at 1:00-1:30.  For those of you who may not know, I once had a radio show of my own and it was a blast!  It will be great fun to get behind the microphone again and chat with friends about important issues!

“Your Entrepreneurial Ear” is an informative show for all Rogue Valley Business Owners and aspiring ones. Gary Einhorn has owned five different businesses over the course of 30 entrepreneurial years. He is currently a Business Coach in private practice in Ashland. I am very excited to be his guest!
