Jillian's Dream and Life of an Entrepreneur

08-11-2015

Today I welcomed guest Ros Miller to the program.  Ros is the mother of Jillian Miller who lost her battle with stage 4 lung cancer in May 2013.  After Jillian’s passing, Ros was inspired to launch the non-profit organization, Jillian’s Dream to help raise awareness and funding for lung cancer research. 

Ros opens the segment with the story of Jillian and how the disease was detected in her body.  Jillian was not a smoker, nor was she around smokers, and the disease was found due to a swollen lymph node.  Upon further testing, the doctors determined the cancer had spread to the lymph nodes after originating in the lungs and she was at the late stages of lung cancer, a disease with a very high mortality rate. 

Ros also talks about the Organization’s annual event, Rappel for Lung Cancer Research.  This event, being held December 11th and 12th at the Parmenter Realty Partners Island Center located at 2701 Rocky Point Dr Tampa, has participants rappel down a 13 story office building to raise awareness and funding for lung cancer research.  The event last year raised over $136,000 and the goal this year is to raise $200,000.  Ros is looking for both ledgers (people that rappel), sponsors and volunteers and you can learn more at http://www.jilliansdream.org!  Reach out to Ros at 813-928-7435 or email at ros.miller@jilliansdream.org for more information!

My 2nd guest on the program was Ivan Anzulovich, joined in studio by business partner David Sanders.  Ivan is a 31 year old young entrepreneur and has been developing business brands since the age of 14.  Ivan and I open the segment with a discussion of this first business which was an off road travel business that took riders on adventurous trips through the Argentinian Country, of which he was born and raised.  This was a natural spin off business for him as his family was in the car dealership business and was able to obtain 4 wheel drive vehicles for usage.

Ivan is a very diverse entrepreneur and we close out the segment with a brief recap of the business lines he is currently in which include ownership of a Toyota dealership in Argentina, Truth Entertainments, a book and movie creator company in the US, Raices Anz, a Real Estate company in Argentina, MyFamily.House discussed prior and MyBit Farm, a processing data center in the US.  David also closed out the segment with a note that they will be coming out with a report geared towards finding investors for the MyFamily.House business and will be available soon on the website.  Learn more about Ivan and his many businesses at http://www.myfamily.house and you can reach him at 727-643-3116 or ivan@myfamily.house for more information and ways to get involved with his businesses!
