Undefeated World Boxing Organization (WBO) middleweight champion Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin (29-0, 21 KOs) joined me on today's show!

Find out more about KID CHOCOLATE on his website:

If you missed Peter on today's show, you listen to
our conversation here.

A Chicago native who grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan (the hometown of Floyd Mayweather), but who now proudly calls New York City his home, middleweight Peter ‘Kid Chocolate’ Quillin has garnered plenty of attention for his habit of throwing chocolate candy kisses to the crowd after his victories, but he’s also struck fear into opponents for his habit of knocking people out with frightening efficiency.

Such charisma and talent has led many to call him one of the top prospects in the fight game today, praise he hopes to live up to.

A boxer since the age of seven, Quillin quickly made a name for himself locally and he added to that name by adopting the nickname ‘Kid Chocolate’ in honor of his father’s Cuban heritage. By 2002, Quillin had relocated to New York City, and after two stints in the New York Golden Gloves he decided to turn pro in 2005 at the age of 21.

That night, Quillin stopped Anthony Hunter in a single round, and the love affair between the Big Apple and the new ‘Kid Chocolate’ began. Four of Quillin’s first six bouts – all victories – ended in the first round, so in September of 2006, his team decided to step up the level of competition against 8-1 prospect Brad Austin.

But Austin only made it to round two against the fast and furious attack of Quillin.

Two fights later, a 38 second blowout of 34 fight veteran Steve Walker improved his record to 9-0, and kicked off a 2007 campaign that saw him compete like an old-school pugilist as he fought an impressive eight times. All eight fights turned into victories, and included wins over well-regarded prospects Victor Paz (TKO2) and Jamal Davis (W8), as well as 34-fight vet Troy Lowry, who had been in the ring with Hector Camacho, Yuri Foreman, and Anthony Bonsante.

In 2008, Quillin continued to garner rave notices during a nine month period that saw him add four more wins to his ledger, including a 10 round decision over former world title challenger Antwun Echols, but then the injury bug bit, and Quillin would be sidelined for nearly 17 months.

Amazingly, when he returned in February of 2010 with a near-shutout victory over seasoned contender Fernando Zuniga, it was as if he never left, and after a keep busy knockout of Martin Desjardins in December of 2010, he made three big statements in 2011 with early stoppages of Dennis Sharpe, Jesse Brinkley and Craig McEwan.

Ms. Senior America Elisabeth Howard and CEO for the Ms. Senior California Pageant program, Pamela Wheeler, join me on Get the FUNK Out tomorrow at 9am pst!

Ms. Senior America Elisabeth Howard and Pamela Wheeler, the CEO for the Ms. Senior California Pageant program joined me this morning on Get the FUNK Out!. Oh, and did I mention Elisabeth is an opera singer and looks amazing for 72 years of age?! The show aired LIVE Monday at 9am pst on KUCI88.9fm and streaming on If you missed it, you can listen to the entire show here.

The reigning Ms. Senior America Elisabeth Howard (from Los Angeles) will be giving up her crown at the end of this month in Atlantic City! She represents the American woman 60 years and older for our Nation!

The newly crowded Ms. Senior California is Alise Richel (from Santa Monica). She won the title August 25th and will be going to Atlantic City to vie for the crown of Ms. Senior America October 25th. Alise bested 13 women from across the state of California to win the title. Oh, and did I mention she is 80 years old!

BOTH ladies are opera singers and represent the "Age of Elegance" - those seniors over 60 years of age; Elisabeth is 72 and Alise is 80 years old AND they don't look it or do they act it!

Alise had a standing ovation during her talent competition when she sang Puccini opera Turandot, the aria Nessun Dorma (None Shall Sleep). It was like being at the Met!

These ladies are a great example of how age is NOT deterring their dreams or stopping them from living life to the fullest! And they certainly don’t look or act like senior citizens!


Pamela has a background in corporate leadership, management and relationship development after serving many years in the public sector where she was the Senior Vice President of an Irvine-based staffing company. Upon announcement of the retirement of Marilyn Kohler, former director of the California program, Pamela was selected by the Board of Directors of the Ms. Senior California of America Inc. 501(c)3 to assume leadership of the Board as CEO to include overall responsibility for the rapidly growing California pageant program.

During a successful career in leadership at the California-based firm, Ms. Wheeler was responsible for business development and branch operations for 37 business units. Under her leadership, top line revenue of the organization grew from less than $10 million annually to exceed $100 million in 2005, 2006, and 2007. She was responsible for executive relationship development with all major clients, in addition to leading the ongoing development and refinement of Managed Staffing program protocols for high-profile clients. Responsibility also included contract negotiations with large clients as well as transactional clients. As a senior executive, she participated in setting the strategic direction for the organization. Her leadership role also included her involvement in the development of branch-related performance metrics, customer-oriented protocols and best practices for business units.

Within a few years of retiring from her Corporate Life, she participated in the Ms. Senior California of America Pageant and won the Ms. Senior California title in 2010. Over the course of the past several years, she has directed the Orange County Preliminary Pageant and judged several pageants in other national pageant programs. Her corporate background and leadership experience positioned her well for the CEO role of the California pageant program.

Pamela is also a member of the Board of Trustees of the Concordia University Foundation, Irvine, California. Additionally, she is a Board member of South Coast Children's Society, headquartered in Santa Ana, California. She is a member of the Gary Bonner Singers, and as a professional singer, she performs with "Classic Touch" and "The Eternelles."

Nick Jordan, creator of Wells of Life, and Advisory Board Member, Michelle Yegsigian joined me at 9:30am today!

President of Wells of Life Nick Jordan and Advisory Board Member Michelle Yegsigian joined me today to talk about how they are inspiring people of all ages to build water wells for the people of Uganda.

If you missed the show today, you can hear our entire conversation here.

Each well serves approximately 1,000 people, and changes their lives forever. To date, Wells of Life has helped provide lifesaving water wells that serve over 200,000 people. Here's some footage about their organization:

Wells of Life exists to solve the world water crisis, one well at a time. We were founded in 2008 with a commitment to bring clean water to one million people by 2020 with the funding of 1,000 water wells. We have worked closely with Fields of Life and witnessed the tremendous lifesaving work they have been doing since 1995 in many areas including Health Education and bringing the gospel message to thousands in Uganda. Wells of Life holds the committed belief that the tap root of poverty is lack of clean water. We focus exclusively on raising both awareness and needed funding to provide communities with the gift of clean water. We work alongside Fields of Life who own and operate the drilling equipment and who drill the water wells. Based in Laguna Beach, we received our own charitable status earlier this year (2012).

We are focused on three main areas: corporations, schools and families. We see all three as spanning a bridge of human awareness that will grow our outreach into all areas of the community around us. By providing a water well and dedicating it in the donor's name, we make this one of the most personal and most measurable gifts possible. A water well offers the gift of life to a community that lacks clean water. With clean water this community can begin to grow into a self sustainable community. Everything begins with clean water and with it, anything is possible.

In the future we hope to arrange for trips to Uganda so donors can see first-hand the miracles their donations bring about every day. It is our mission to create a world where each person has access to water as a basic human right. With your help we can accomplish this. For more information, visit:

About Olivia Vicky Lee & Vision Boards!
I help individuals and corporate teams build a visual map of their challenges. The results are personal transformation, increased profits and improved relationships.

Why talk to her?

After the first few minutes of talking with her, you will probably be astounded at how well she knows you. You’ll suddenly have realizations, eye-opening clarity.

She's spent her whole life with this ability to touch someone’s soul. Your soul is the same thing as your personal power. When you feel deeply inspired, ultimate self-confidence, at your peak performance— this is when you are living in pure alignment with your soul.

You can see then, why she tends to attract high-powered, high-profile individuals such as CEO’s, serial entrepreneurs and those who have a lot at stake. Their success will make or break them. Often times, it does both. These are the kind of folks who need her.

Have you ever searched your whole life for something? Maybe it’s true love, maybe it’s your big break to be named partner at your firm, maybe it’s funding for a new business venture or to be declared cancer-free? That’s the moment! That feeling, that surge of power… when you get it.

She sees that moment often in her coaching practice. She sees people “get it!” And it’s like watching someone find their soul, their true love, their power, their highest self and fulfill their maximum potential for the first time. To her, it’s beautiful. It’s the reason why she was born.
How did she become a coach?

When she was 13, an angel landed on her windowsill. She was blinded with a soft white light while praying. God or the angel? Someone from up above whispered inside she heart. She knew who she was. She helps people succeed.

For the next 22 years, she studied with Native Indian shaman, Hawaiian kahuna, Brazilian miracle healers, New Age philosophers, religion, self-empowerment programs and lived with indigenous tribes learning their sacred ways of healing.

While farming knee-deep in mud with a family of native taro farmers on the north shore of Kaua’i, she realized that it was time to fulfill her calling. All her life, she had been hand-plucked by the best to become the best.
How will she help you?

She's developed and refined a proven methodology she uses in her private practice, New Age classrooms and in corporate boardrooms. It’s called, “Vision Mapping.” It’s your roadmap to your success.

You can build a vision map of anything that you want—- an abundant lifestyle, romance, a great body, a stunning career. The first step is similar to the conventional vision boards you see on Oprah and The Secret.

From there on…. everything else is different. The real reason you’re not living the dream life pictured on your vision board will quickly surface. You get your first “aha,” right away. It seems like a huge breakthrough! Wait, we’re not done yet. We keep going higher and higher, further and further…. until you’ve got a detailed game plan with concrete next steps that practically guarantee your success.

The only coaching that happens from this point on is making sure you’re executing the secrets of your success outlined on your vision map. Naturally, you will want to build more vision maps of other areas of your life. You will have a powerful tool that you can use over and over again, that always works for you. Your vision map helps you get unstuck and move forward. The best part is I teach you how to use your vision map and how to re-create it whenever you want.
