Frank D’Angelo is an intrepid entrepreneur, singer, restaurateur, and the James Bond of the Canadian beverage world. At least one of his products can be found in almost every convenience store in Canada under the brands D’Angelo or Arizona, and he has raised thousands of dollars for charities through his music. Born to Sicilian parents in Toronto, Frank nurtured his keen business sense as a boy by buying and consolidating paper routes, and then contracting them out. He flipped his first house at age 20. Six years later, he mortgaged his house to buy $150,000 worth of apple juice, which he used to start a multi-million dollar business empire from his truck. Frank appears in lots of his TV commercials, in various incarnations, and his inimitable “Eye-talian” style is arguably as famous as his drinks. You need only mention the catchphrase, “I Cheetah all the time,” and the infamous Ben Johnson Cheetah energy drink commercial springs to mind. Frank D’Angelo doesn’t just push the envelope—he pushes the entire post office; and in so doing, revolutionizes the very idea of merchandising. With a raw wit and seasoned debonair, Frank now hosts his own Friday night variety talk show, the Being Frank Show, with A-list guests and an assortment of comedy skits and live music. Despite his huge successes and achievements, Frank D’Angelo is probably best known for just...Being Frank!

Farheen Khan was the victim of an Islamophobic attack by a stranger in a residential apartment building in Toronto. She managed to elude her attacker but the assault on her body had only just begun. For fear of dishonoring her family in the South Asian and Muslim community, Farheen didn’t report the incident. Internalizing this experience so deeply sent her body into an allergic overdrive, resulting in fatal anaphylactic shock. Being unable to consume entire food groups gave her an insight into how a third of the people on earth are unable to eat for a very diﬀerent reason—poverty and food insecurity. Despite her allergies, Farheen worked tirelessly to make a diﬀerence locally on building the foundation for the Muslim social services sector in her city. From the ﬁrst lick of soy pudding, to despair and back again, she realized that not only can we not ﬁght adversity alone—we are not expected to. This is an honest and candid story about accepting the angels that come in and out of our lives when we need them the most, to show us to ourselves as a reﬂective surface on a dirty wall. Sometimes being swept away by a giant wave beyond our understanding can take us to beaches we never knew existed; and in losing control, we can often gain control of who we are and what we are really about. Today, cured of 95 percent of her allergies, Farheen has founded and presides over several non-proﬁt organizations to help relieve poverty.
In this candid confessional, comedian Carla Collins divides the world into the angels who guide us, inspire us, and save our butts; the sexy and trendy vampires who suck the life out of us; and the douche bags who constantly annoy, disgust and taunt us. With a fast wit, fake breasts and real heart, Collins shares her unconventional journey from a small steel town in Ontario, Canada to Tinseltown L.A. On this wild and revealing romp, she navigates her way through seventy-two imaginary friends, multiple fiancés, eight dogs, two marriages, and one topless grandmother. Her hard-earned life lessons will show you that by taking risks, embracing humiliation and tapping into the power of laughter, anything is possible—and everyone is manageable. Attract more angels into your life, control your vampires, and keep all the douche bags at bay. Angels, Vampires and Douche Bags is original, edgy, uplifting and laugh-out-loud funny.

What if I told you that it’s as important to manage the thoughts you feed yourself as it is to manage the food you eat? What if your physical condition is simply a reflection of your inner world? Perhaps in the past you have managed to lose weight through diet and exercise alone. However if you didn’t address the underlying subconscious thoughts that created the problem in the first place, the weight probably returned.
As a hypnotherapist I have come to deeply respect the power of the subconscious mind. I believe the root cause of becoming overweight is usually mental, emotional and spiritual, rather than physical. When you change your mind, the body follows automatically. Then you lose weight easily, steadily, seemingly without effort.
Through the rough patches in our life, we sometimes forget that we are not alone. It is when we need inspiration and guidance but can’t talk to our friends or family, we need someone who understands and has been through it before us, and is still…
