As a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher and Speaker, I can offer you workshops, seminars, keynote speaking, and coaching, aiding your personal and professional growth through study and practical application of John’s proven leadership methods. Working together, I will move you and/or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals.

I have an extensive background in Information Technology, primarily in the Healthcare Industry. During this time, I have seen good leadership; but more commonly, I have witnessed a dire need in both industries for effective leadership that produces positive outcomes. Healthcare, more than ever before, requires the utmost in good leaders who know how to add value to their workforce; thus creating an environment of peak productivity. Likewise, other industries, businesses and organizations can benefit greatly from the development of good leaders.

I have read and put to practice self-improvement and leadership materials for years, especially those of John C. Maxwell. When the opportunity arose to join with his team to build a legacy of coaches and teachers, I jumped at the chance. Training under John and his world-class mentorship team has been the highlight of my life. It has fulfilled my passion to surround myself with individuals living and breathing best practices in the leadership and personal development community, so I can share that experience with others.

My observations and experience, coupled with my burning desire to add value to people and use the skills I have been trained for, will most assuredly make a difference in your organization and help you reach new levels of achievement.

Simon will explain what it takes to create an environment in which people work as they were designed – together. It is under these conditions we are at our natural best.

Pensacola Business Radio-9-27-16 Guests: Deb Moore for Escambia County Tax Collector, Kevin Parr/DrinKitz, Jeremy Carver / Edward Jones, Calvin Bonifacio/Grub Ninja



Meet Deb

Deb Moore is prepared for the role as your next Escambia County Tax Collector.  She continued her family’s tradition of service to our country and is a 12 year veteran of the United States Air Force.  Trained as a Cryptologist at Pensacola’s very own NTTC Corry Station, Deb went on to serve tours of duty in England, Greece, back at Corry Station and Japan. Throughout her career she was given responsibilities beyond her pay grade and she always rose to the challenge.  Deb was promoted to E6 by Brigadier General Paul Martin right here at Corry station for her efforts.  She made the next grade to MSgt in just 10 years, as she arrived in Japan.  There the Air Force was going through a paradigm shift in management to Total Quality Management (Malcolm Baldrige) and Deb was chosen as an instructor and the lead in bringing it to the unit. She continued her management studies with the University of Maryland and, in preparation for this job, just completed Management of a Tax Collector Office TCC502 offered through the FL DOR and TCC504 Collection of Licenses, Taxes and Fees later this month while she studies TCC501 Duties & Responsibilities of a Florida Tax Collector at home.


Deb’s commitment to her family and her community is consummate. Instrumental in the 1st Congressional District Honor Flight, taking World War II veterans to Washington, D.C., she has been recognized as An Angel in our Midst twice by WEAR TV3. This is her sixth year working to raise money to support underinsured and uninsured women in our community as a member of the Krewe du YaYa’s. She participates in Relay for Life, Pink Ribbon, and MSABC since 2005 and is a Road to Recovery Driver. Additionally, she is a United Way Board Member serving as their Advocacy/2-1-1 Chair and reads to a Pre-K student with Every Child a Reader in Escambia (ECARE).  Deb is the county appointee to the Affordable Housing Advisory Committee and was elected as the vice chair.  She serves as the treasurer on her Condominium Association and manages their budget daily.  With the Community Traffic Safety Team, Deb is a certified helmet fitter and fits kids for bike helmets at local events.  From substitute teacher to PTO President, team mom, coach or Guardian Ad Litem — whatever was needed at the time in her son’s life or in her community, Deb has answered the call, including training as an FHSAA swim official and USTA tennis official.

DrinKitz was formed in 2012 to develop, produce, and market an innovative and unique line of powdered cocktail drink mixes. The company was formed by a group of US Navy guys far too cheap and lazy to fully stock and mix drinks from their own bars or the endurance to carry it all around.  After discovering that mixing drinks from a bartenders guide got more difficult with the number of drinks consumed they asked the golden question —why can’t we just add a packet to  our favorite alcohol, mix, and drink. Now you can!

Far different than anything on the market, these drinks  are easy to use and mix, require no knowledge of bartending or mixology, and save you time and money. Whether you’re hanging out by the pool, hosting an event at home, heading out on vacation, or want to impress family and friends, you’ll want these by your side. With  one shot of your vodka, rum, or tequila, a little water and ice, and your choice of over 30 drink mixes, with a quick shake you become an instant bartender. Want something different? No problem, just grab a different mix packet! Want something we don’t have, let us know.

Made in America with high-quality ingredients, and available through regional liquor distributors, various retail  markets, caterers, and on our own Amazon storefront (coming soon),  these great products put fantastic tasting, full-bar quality mixed drinks at your fingertips—without the bar tab.

Kevin Parr is minority owner and Chief Operating Officer of DrinKitz LLC. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from Central Missouri State University in Warrensburg, and a Master of Public Administration degree from the University of Missouri at Kansas City.  A former Navy Lieutenant, Kevin first served as an enlisted Navy Cryptologist, and was later granted a commission as an Information Warfare Officer; he served from 1986-1992 & 2003-2015. Kevin has extensive experience in Risk Management and Human Resources.  A resident of South Dakota, Kevin spends a great deal of time in the Pensacola area, and also travels the US as he works to launch and market DrinKitz, and recruit additional sales teams.


Calvin Bonifacio is a pioneer in new age marketing strategies and mobile applications in the Pensacola area. Having launched projects such as GrubNinja and GrubOn T.V., he has connected the community with technology allowing restaurants to flourish with additional sources of revenue at very low cost, as well as, giving customers information through visual content and experiential marketing.

While travelling the country working with companies such as Oracle, Microsoft, and CompuCom training employees and deploying updates systems and softwares, Calvin realized the effect that technology has on large scale enterprises. This experience combined with the move to Pensacola and the advent of GrubNinja and GrubOn T.V. was the catalyst to LeadGrasp. We found a way to capitalize on Google strategies to develop and bring new businesses to the Gulf Coast region.

Calvin’s dedication lies in growing the Pensacola area since he plans on growing his family here. Therefore, not only are his endeavors for business purposes, but also to ensure the success of the local economy for future generations. Calvin realizes the potential growth that Pensacola holds and will help future business capitalize on this opportunities.

“A “Veteran” -whether active duty, discharged,retired, or reserve- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America,” for amount of “up to, and including his life.” That is honor. And there are way too many people in this country today, who no longer understand that fact. My mission is to ensure that we give back to those who wrote that check.”


My name is Steven Specht, and I’m running for Florida’s First Congressional District. I want to lead through intelligent dialogue and ideas, not partisan rhetoric and brinkmanship. The country I love is intensely divided. Our starting point should be as Americans, not as members of any political party. We need to stop the bickering and fix the dysfunction in federal government that threatens to compromise our national security, endangers our public infrastructure, and has added trillions to an overflowing national debt. I pledge to place the people of the First Congressional District above personal gain and to represent their interests in Washington DC.

Join our campaign now and please learn more about where I stand on important issues.

Pensacola Business Radio: Bobby Bowden Speech for Pensacola Chamber Annual Meeting 2016

Bobby Bowden / FSU-Former Head Coach


Robert Cleckler Bowden (born November 8, 1929) is a retired American football coach. He coached the Florida State Seminoles football team from the 1976 to 2009 seasons. During his time at Florida State, Bowden led FSU to an Associated Press and Coaches Poll National Title in 1993 and a BCS National Championship in 1999, as well as twelve Atlantic Coast Conference championships since FSU joined the conference in 1991. After a difficult 2009 season and amid questioning fans, Bowden stepped down, just weeks after his 80th birthday. But he was allowed to make his final coaching appearance in the 2010 Gator Bowl game on January 1, 2010, with a 33–21 victory over his former program, West Virginia.

On the day of March 6, 2009 NCAA ruling requiring Florida State to “vacate wins for any games in which an ineligible player participated,” threatened to remove as many as 14 of Bowden’s wins from the 2006 and 2007 seasons in relation to an academic scandal. Florida State appealed the ruling,[1][2][3] but the NCAA upheld it on January 5, 2010.[4] Upon final investigation by Florida State University it was determined that Bowden was to vacate 12 wins,[5] bringing his final career record to 377–129–4.
