Pegi Burdick began her journey toward untangling her emotions from her money as Vice President of National Sales for a clothing company that was owned and staffed by women. In this environment, Pegi began to understand the unique intricacies of how women interact with each other. Unresolved financial conflicts between the owner and management caused Pegi to leave. She became a mortgage broker and as she learned the business, Pegi discovered many of her clients mismanaged their finances. Many were coming out of abusive relationships with house payments they couldn't afford, feeding children with no support from estranged husbands. The struggles of her clients inspired Pegi to develop Home Loans For Women, a company that helped women keep their homes and repair their finances. Today Pegi's program, The Financial Whisperer, helps women recognize and understand how and why they confuse love and money, why they have difficulty demanding what they deserve, and provides life changing tools.

Ryan Kawika Dolan
It’s only natural that Ryan Kawika Dolan would feel at home on the water, you could say he grew up on it. Ryan was born in Kailua, Hawaii - a small beach community where his house was within a short walking distance from the shoreline. Ryan’s childhood was shaped by his family’s beach lifestyle. Ryan surfed, fished and swam at a young age. Ryan’s grandfather was heavily involved in Lanikai Canoe Club and introduced him to Outrigger canoe paddling at the age of ten. Ryan’s love of the ocean only grew the older he became and as he paddled for Lanikai Canoe Club. He credits Mauli Aspelund and his grandfather Willis Rich as giving him the drive for excellence in canoe paddling. At the age of sixteen after his older brother Patrick Dolan excelled in outrigger canoe paddling, Ryan began to do OC-1 paddling. Ryan’s motivation and obvious potential was noticed by the Foti Brothers and they offered him a sponsorship with their canoes as a way of supporting Ryan. John Foti in particular became a mentor to Ryan. Under his guidance, Ryan not only became the top paddler among the 18-and-under group but was also competitive with adult men in local ocean races, placing in the top 10, all while still a teenager. After a slight hesitation, Ryan decided to try kayaking during his senior year at Maryknoll High School and joined HCKT (Hawaii Canoe & Kayak Team). Ryan was immediately winning the surfski races for his school which led to him being invited to the US Junior National Team training camp at the US Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California. Living and training at the US Olympic Training Center was a pivotal time in Ryan’s kayaking career. The training center experience and environment cultivated the already present drive for excellence in Ryan and began his Olympic dreams. Ryan became the national champion in every race he participated in that year as well as winning the gold and bronze medals at the Pan American Championships, and a silver medal at the Australian Youth Olympics. Perhaps most notable is the silver medal he won at the 2008 Junior World Test Event in Moscow, Russia. The following year, Ryan became a resident at the US National Training Center as well as becoming a member of the US National Kayak Team. That same year, Ryan was ranked fourth overall in the United Sates and attended his first World Championships in Halifax, Canada and numerous World Cup Races throughout Europe. 2010 was a breakthrough year for Ryan because he won the selection trials of the new Olympic distance of 200 meters for K-1 (single) races as well as becoming the national champion for both the K-1 200 meters and the K-1 500 meters. In the 2010 Pan American Championships Ryan won two bronze medals in those same events. In 2011, Ryan was ranked second in the K-1 200 meters and first in the K-2 (double) 200 meters at the national selection trials. Next Ryan achieved his biggest accomplishment yet by winning a bronze medal at the 2011 Pan American Games which qualified the United States for the 2012 Olympic Games in the K-1 200 meter race.

The authentic nature of Tini Grey’s music and the strength of his appeal lie in his smooth voice and compelling songwriting. The fully realized mainstream immediacy of his music conjures up cornerstone artists such as Jack Johnson and John Mayer, and in a similar fashion, Tini Grey is emerging with just as unique and soulful songs. Born of Samoan heritage, Grey grew up in a famous musical family with a lot of good mojo. He is the son of well-known Samoan singer/songwriter Jerome Grey who defined a genre of island pop and folk that has influenced an entire generation of Polynesian musicians to this day. Aware of the negative taboo associated with following in father’s musical footsteps, Tini was forced to carve out a distinct musical path separate from the iconic career of his dad. He has now transcended that precipice and is poised to reach a much broader market with his debut crossover album “Shades of Grey”. Despite his inherent musical talent, Tini shied away from the business until his 30′s, choosing to focus his attention elsewhere, namely marrying the girl of his dreams, former Miss America Angela Perez Baraquio. He also studied architecture in Los Angeles, an apt metaphor for the kind of craftsmanship and design he now brings to his songwriting. Tini began to contemplate his own musical destiny in 2006 when his father suffered a stroke while performing on stage. Not long after that, Tini’s innate passion to write and play inevitably became his life path. Tini’s first EP, “Better Place” garnered rave reviews and radio play out of the gate. He was courted to play events across the US to the South Pacific, hitting such venues as the Ford Amphitheater, House of Blues Anaheim and the Ho’olaulea Island Festivals in California. Upon returning, Tini entered the studio once more, this time to record a full length album he could use as a vehicle for his new found confidence. In a way, Tini Grey’s honest and genuine progression as a musician is a testament to what can be achieved with faith, perseverance and a huge serving of talent. When Tini sings you can expect a shot of Johnson’s laid back sensibilities, a twist of Mayer’s breathy pop leanings, all neatly tied together with the tasty styling of Al Green and other soul greats. Add to that the sincerity of delivery that is uniquely Tini and you will get another standout musician that is slated for great things. “Shades of Grey” is a sophisticated blend of Acoustic, Pop and Soul. An exploration of love, passion, pleasure and empowerment through keen storytelling and heart-felt insight that showcases the varied experiences of a young man creating the life of his dreams. The leadoff single “Home Again” taps the essence of reuniting with a loved one, played to the tune of breezy back porch pop, invoking G. Love & Special Sauce. View Guest page
