Kolleen Edwards Chesley has 25 years of experience in the financial services industry and spent the majority of her career as a financial advisor. In that role, Kolleen was responsible for finding her own clients and quickly learned the value of networking, networking, and even more networking. It was in 2004 and during her sales career that she, along with two other professional business women met for lunch with the purpose of helping to motivate each other after Hurricane Ivan had blown through our area and changed not only the physical landscape of the area, but also impacted the business landscape as well. Out of that lunch was born what is now a thriving not-for-profit organization for business women.

 

Kolleen currently serves full-time as the Founding Director of what was originally called Women’s Business Lunch and is now known as Powerful Women of the Gulf Coast. The organization advocates a culture of confidence building, lifelong learning, collaboration, empowering others and a spirit of charitable giving. The mission of Powerful Women of the Gulf Coast is to promote, advance and improve women in business and the organization accomplishes these in a number of different ways.

–             Monthly networking meetings in Pensacola and Gulf Breeze. These are open to all women and free to attend. We run a structured meeting with open networking, an educational segment, a sponsor presentation, an opportunity to hear about the businesses of all attendees, and a whole lot of fun. We frequently hear from attendees that these meeting are chock full of value and a great way to build new relationships to help support their businesses.

–             Powerful Women of the Gulf Coast Magazine. We are in our third year of production of the magazine and our goal is for this to be a quarterly publication. Each edition features interviewees of local successful leaders in business who share their honest thoughts on leadership, success, obstacles, and inspiration as it relates to women in business. We also include other articles on leadership, networking, and other skill development. It is geared for anyone in business or looking for business motivation and tips.

–             Annual Pursue Your Passion Women’s conference. To help celebrate National Business Women’s Week, we hold a full day conference during the third week of October along with several other events leading up to the conference. We feature a national keynote speaker, several local successful leaders in business, along with Speed Networking, an Experience Hall, structured and unstructured networking exercises and plenty of laughter, relationship building and excitement. Our attendees are not only motivated by the conference but they leave with tangible tips they can take back and implement in their businesses to lead them to success.

–             Power Up Challenge is a 12 week educational series where we hold classes once a week for an hour and a half focused around four main areas of business: Networking, Marketing, Business Efficiency, and Sales Skills. Open to men and women and all classmates (whether they attend in person or not) receive the full audio recording of each class along with class notes, expanded notes, and extra resources. Classes are affordable and attendees are elated with the amount and quality of the information that is shared.

–             Women in Leadership radio podcast show – sponsored by Pensacola Business Radio X. We hold shows twice a month and bring in mostly women but some men for in-depth interviews. Interviewees share their advice on topics such as mentoring, keys to success, time management tools, personal mantras and favorite inspirations, and what men can do to help support women in business.

Membership in Powerful Women of the Gulf Coast is also available. Contact kolleen@powerfulwomengulfcoast.com for more information or visit our website at powerfulwomengulfcoast.com or Facebook at Powerful Women of the Gulf Coast.

Ball Hawk

How the Golf Ball Hawk Came To Be

cropped-kevinKevin Hogan, the inventor of The Golf Ball Hawk, had a problem. He was always looking in his golf bag for his next ball, for he lost quite a few when he was learning to play. Or he was stuffing his pockets and unable to pull the next ball out without removing his glove. And you know the effect that a pocket full of golf balls can have on your swing! So he set out to solve his problem. For almost twenty years he contemplated the idea for having a dispenser that would mount to the top of your golf bag, making your golf balls easily accessible. He went through several designs, made drawings and produced prototypes. Finally, after his wife Judi said, “Now is your time to put this out there!” He made it happen. Selecting the simplest to use design and with the help of some strategic alliances, he finally produced a finished model of what a “real” ball hawk would look, feel and smell like!


Introducing “The Golf Ball Hawk”

double-shot-gb-backgroundWe would like to introduce you to our product “The Golf Ball Hawk”. It is a golf ball dispenser that clips to the top of your golf bag and allows you easy access to your golf balls. No more digging around in the bottom of your bag, or having your pockets stuffed with extra golf balls. Make your game more enjoyable. Use your energy to concentrate on that swing! It will become an indispensable tool that you just won’t want to go out on the course without.


How it works

green-on-bagThe Golf Ball Hawk is very simple to use. To begin, you simply clip it to the top of your golf bag. It is top loading and holds up to four balls, so pop open the top and load it up. To remove a ball from the Golf Ball Hawk you simply lift it slightly at the bottom of the tube and pull it towards you. Out it pops into your hand! You’re now ready to tee up and focus on your shot.

Mission

Saving Lives…. Reducing  Crime…..Building Futures

Pathways For Change is committed to our clients and our community. Human transformation is our business; Pathways for Change saves people from the destructive lifestyle too often perpetuated by poverty, abuse of alcohol and other drugs, and lack of education.

Pathways For Change reduces crime on many fronts. We reduce recidivism at a rate of 70 percent, meaning the vast majority of our clients do not go out and commit new crimes. We help young people and families know that they have a future as law-abiding citizens. They do not need to hang with the gang, give up hope or dreams, or settle for a life that is not what God has intended for them.

Pathways For Change builds futures for children by providing a summer camp and an after-school program for middle-school boys and girls. We build futures for families by showing them how to live free of drugs and crime. We build futures of the elderly residents who live right next door to the Family Center; they now have meaningful work to do — volunteering as tutors, mentors, instructors, childcare sitters, librarians, office coordinators. We are reviving a neighborhood, called “homeless town,” working with each other to save lives, increase safety and build futures.

Vision

Pathways For Change offers a comprehensive, caring vision. We assess each individual who comes to PFC for help and we offer assistance in whatever areas are needed. all the lacking areas. If we build lives, one at a time, and do it well, we will save a neighborhood and then a community. We depend greatly on our partners and volunteers; that bond allows those individuals to accomplish their own missions. We all benefit.

We believe that the only way to true healing is through the love of God and a daily relationship with Him.

We envision healthy activities, such as a community vegetable garden, with area residents growing and selling their produce. We plan daily exercise classes for children, adults and senior citizens. We see a future that is healthy, ripe with opportunities.

Core Values

• Faith – We believe it is not about us, it is about God’s Leadership.
• Commitment – We show love and compassion for each other and those we serve, as we make a difference in our community.
• Communication – We practice daily, the vital sharing and understanding of information in a safe, nurturing environment.
• Integrity – We deliver transparency in our organization, earning trust and respect.
• Hope – We believe that every life is a life worth saving.
• Stewardship –  We make wise and responsible decisions regarding all that we have been given.
• Excellence – We deliver excellence through personal responsibility, accountability and  continuous improvement.

Executive Director/Coastkeeper

Emerald Coastkeeper

As a member of Waterkeepers Alliance, we strive to maintain drinkable, fishable, swimmable waters for our community.

You can start tuning in to “PURE H2O” every Wednesday at 9AM CST on Pensacola Business RadioX. Every Wednesday there will be a local discussion on important environmental points of interest. From clean energy to healthy water to environmental justice, education and much more.

For our first podcast, Laurie Murphy, Executive Director of Emerald Coastkeeper will be interviewing local educators and a non-profit organization “Harnessing Opportunity and Power of Education (HOPE) about the importance of supplemental STEM education and art/cultural education in underserved communities.

For more information on how you can be a guest, contact Laurie Murphy at laurie@emeraldcoastkeeper.org.

Founded in 1999, Emerald Coastkeeper is one of 240 (and counting) member organizations of the Waterkeeper Alliance. We are a grassroots organization that monitors four main watersheds in the Florida Panhandle. Our mission is to investigate, educate and protect our right to swimmable. fishable and drinkable water. We believe that healthy waterways are directly connected to healthy communities and healthy people.

In our four watersheds, you will find many springs, creeks, rivers, bayou’s, bays and of course, the Gulf of Mexico.

Pollution can happen anywhere, not just from large industries. Some of the greatest concerns in our region stem from residential pollution.

Some of the more common culprits are septic system failure, erosion and sedimentation, nutrient loading from fertilizers, red tide, heavy metals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, polychlorinated biphenyls, (PCBs) lead, mercury, animal wastes, industrial paint source discharge, oil spills, commercial vessel pollution, residential development, and household garbage.

Protecting our waterways and drinking water from contaminants is everyone’s responsibility. We can’t do it alone…we need your help!

Feel free to contact us if you want to volunteer or to report a problem. We look forward to creating a healthy community with you!

Pensacola Dragon Boat Festival

 Location: Bayview Park
  • Date: September 10, 2016
  • Time: 8:00am
  • Cost: $2,000 business $1000 non-profit

Rally your coworkers, friends and family, and join us for Pensacola’s 3rd Annual spectacle on water – dragon boating! Led by the rhythmic beat of a drum, teams of 20 synchronized paddlers, one drummer and one steersperson race 300 meters up the river in 40-foot canoes rigged with decorative Chinese dragon heads and tails. The sport brings social groups and businesses alike down to the water to bond and compete, building a stronger sense of “team” with every stroke. From vets to newbies, anyone can have a good time – we’ve made sure there’s plenty of time to kick back (or thrown down!) between races.

On September 10th, 2016, teams supported by thousands of spectators will compete in Bayou Texar just off Bayview Park in Downtown Pensacola for the third annual Pensacola Dragonboat Race and Festival.

The Festival will begin at 8 AM, with the races beginning at 9 AM.  Each race will be about 12 minutes apart with a break for lunch. Closing ceremonies will begin at about 5 PM.  During the day, DJs will play music to keep everyone up to date on race stats.  Also, a children’s festival and vendor fair will be going on throughout the entire day!

Executive Director/Coastkeeper

Emerald Coastkeeper

As a member of Waterkeepers Alliance, we strive to maintain drinkable, fishable, swimmable waters for our community.

You can start tuning in to “PURE H2O” every Wednesday at 9AM CST on Pensacola Business RadioX. Every Wednesday there will be a local discussion on important environmental points of interest. From clean energy to healthy water to environmental justice, education and much more.

For our first podcast, Laurie Murphy, Executive Director of Emerald Coastkeeper will be interviewing local educators and a non-profit organization “Harnessing Opportunity and Power of Education (HOPE) about the importance of supplemental STEM education and art/cultural education in underserved communities.

For more information on how you can be a guest, contact Laurie Murphy at laurie@emeraldcoastkeeper.org.

Founded in 1999, Emerald Coastkeeper is one of 240 (and counting) member organizations of the Waterkeeper Alliance. We are a grassroots organization that monitors four main watersheds in the Florida Panhandle. Our mission is to investigate, educate and protect our right to swimmable. fishable and drinkable water. We believe that healthy waterways are directly connected to healthy communities and healthy people.

In our four watersheds, you will find many springs, creeks, rivers, bayou’s, bays and of course, the Gulf of Mexico.

Pollution can happen anywhere, not just from large industries. Some of the greatest concerns in our region stem from residential pollution.

Some of the more common culprits are septic system failure, erosion and sedimentation, nutrient loading from fertilizers, red tide, heavy metals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, polychlorinated biphenyls, (PCBs) lead, mercury, animal wastes, industrial paint source discharge, oil spills, commercial vessel pollution, residential development, and household garbage.

Protecting our waterways and drinking water from contaminants is everyone’s responsibility. We can’t do it alone…we need your help!

Feel free to contact us if you want to volunteer or to report a problem. We look forward to creating a healthy community with you!
