with Michael Cooper

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Michael Cooper discuss the following:

  • There are so many products on the market for athletes. Can you tell us a bit about Somalife and what makes your products different?
  • How long have you worked in supplements and what makes you so passionate about Somalife?
  • What kind of results can a weekend warrior realistically expect from your products?
  • There is so much marketing on the scene today. I think actual testimonials from athletes & everyday users are important. Do you have any you can share?
  • Do you take your own supplements? and can you share your personal story & the results you've achieved.
  • Who is a good candidate for SomaLife products?

Michael’s passion however has always been sales and business development, which is where he began his career with SomaLife in 2006 before being promoted to Executive Vice President in 2009. Michael is a polished public speaker and trainer who understands how to grow and manage a large sales organization. This insight and his athletic background were a large part of the conception that brought gHP Sport to the marketplace.

Now, retired from tennis, Michael is an avid golfer. He also played ‘Australian Rules’ football and was once invited to represent the U.S. in an international cricket match.

Michael holds a B.A. from the University of Florida and an M.B.A. from Florida International University.

Eradicating hatred and bullying in all its forms

with Gabriella van Rij

Gabriella van Rij who is the author of "With All My Might" and the founder of "We Open Doors" joins the show to discuss the issue of "bullying".

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Gabriella van Rij discuss the following:

  • You have an amazing life-story. You were born in Pakistan but adopted by a Dutch family.  While international adoptions are almost routine now, in the 1960’s this was very unusual.  What was it like being multi-cultural before that was even really a term?
  • You have recently written a book that offers your insight into a wide variety of cultural issues titled With All My Might.  What is that Gabriella van Rij does with all her might?
  • Many times we find that as we attempt to be ourselves it brings condemnation.  Again quoting Emerson, he said “for nonconformity the world whips you with its displeasure.”  You talk at length about bullying in your book.  We often associate bullying with kids but you talk about how it continues in various forms throughout life.  What are some other examples of bullying?  What other masks does it wear?
  • How do we, as a society, take steps to eradicate such things?
  • Besides merely writing about topics such as bullying, what are you and your team undertaking?
  • You talk a great deal about your self identity and accepting who you are in the book.  In a sentence, tell us who is Gabriella van Rij?
  • How can individuals interested in your book purchase it?
  • For those interested how can they contact you or follow what you are doing or schedule you to speak for their organization or event?

Gabriella van Rij, author of With All My Might, is a woman with one foot in the culture of the East and one in the West.  Born in Pakistan and adopted into a Dutch family Gabriella knows what it is like to be an outcast and to question her own identity.  She is also a woman of singular purpose and passion.  She is fueled by a desire to educate and to eradicate hatred, intolerance, racism, and prejudice.  Gabriella dares to live, to love, to give and to be passionate with every aspect of her life and she encourages us to do the same.

The Wrinkle Prevention Pillow with Patty Colman

The Wrinkle Prevention Pillow with Patty Colman

Patty Colman, Beauty Sleep Expert and president of About Face Products joins eHealth Radio.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Patty Colman discuss the following:

  • Tell us about the revolutionary Wrinkle Prevention Pillow that you invented.  What differentiates the About Face Wrinkle Prevention Pillow from other contour pillows?
  • What made you want to create a beauty sleep product?
  • What are some other benefits of the Wrinkle Prevention Pillow?
  • Please discuss one correlation between getting a good night's sleep and our health.
  • Are there any other products in your line that our listeners should know about that would help prevent wrinkles?


Patty Colman,  Beauty Sleep Expert and president of About Face Products, is all about a good night’s sleep and the benefits that it provides.  Like Dr. Oz, she knows what a crucial role beauty sleep plays in how we look and feel, and she created the Wrinkle Prevention Pillow with memory foam to help us preserve our skin while we get the rest we need.

With rave reviews and testimonials from leading Beverly Hills skincare experts, The Wrinkle Prevention Pillow launches a new category in the skincare and anti-aging industry.  The American Academy of Dermatology cautions that sleeping in certain positions night after night leads to "sleep lines – wrinkles that become etched into the surface of the skin and don't disappear once you're up."

“I look at every night as an opportunity to help others feel and look more beautiful,” Ms. Colman says.  “I designed the Wrinkle Prevention Pillow to help women rest assured knowing that they no longer are causing fine lines while sleeping, they are preventing them!”

Sleeping on your side increases wrinkles, while sleeping facedown can give you a furrowed brow.  With the Wrinkle Prevention Pillow, the ergonomically contoured center makes sleeping on your back more natural and comfortable as it supports the head, neck and spine with its exclusive memory foam. The patented design lifts and cradles your head so that permanent lines and wrinkles don’t develop on the face, neck and chest during sleep.

How does the pillow affect use of other skincare products?

Women of all ages use cosmetics that cover their dark circles and make them appear awake and refreshed. “When you lay flat during the night, fluids pool underneath your eyes to create a sense of puffiness. Our pillow helps prevent these puffy eyes, by slightly elevating your head, thus eliminating the need for heavy under-eye concealer the next morning. The pillow also maximizes the benefits and results of night cream because it will not rub off on your pillow,” shares Ms. Colman.

Because of the unique shape of the Wrinkle Prevention Pillow, About Face Products offers custom silk pillowcases to help protect the style and texture of all hair types. The lavish pillow is encased in a 100% well-appointed cotton fabric to keep the pillow clean when washing the case. The pillow is offered in four soothing colors including ivory, dusty rose, chocolate and purple.

A perfect complement to the Wrinkle Prevention Pillow is the About Face Products Lavender Silk Mask. With luscious silk on one side and plush velour on the other, the Lavender Silk Mask is filled with the finest quality French lavender leaf to promote relaxation.  Its silk strap allows for gentle positioning on the face and head so as to not pull on your hair.

The About Face Products Wrinkle Prevention Memory Foam Pillow and Lavender Silk Eye Mask are available online at, Sharper Image,® and at upscale spas, beauty stores and salons. The suggested retail price of the pillow is $99.00 and each pillowcase is $28.95. The Lavender Silk Mask retails for $25.00.

Founded in 2010, About Face Products, LLC helps you look and feel more beautiful in the morning by providing unique products and resources that educate about beauty sleep. About Face Products, LLC – Sleep Tight, We’ll Make You Beautiful Tonight!
