When Leta Krieger was a Virginia Beach police officer working in the crime prevention unit, she wanted to do more to help people than what she was able to do at work.
So she crafted a business plan to teach personal safety and self-defense classes to young women.
She had space reserved, a curriculum, and plans to teach a class in August 2014. But in July, she injured her leg in training and had to put everything on hold.
Now, two years later, she's ready to go again...

Ten years ago, at the age of 14, Dallas Jessup created a revolutionary self-defense video that has since empowered more than two million young women to fight back against attackers.
Jessup was inspired to make the video after watching security footage of a girl being abducted. Later, the girl was reported to have been assaulted and murdered. With a black belt in Taekwondo, Jessup wondered if the girl could have gotten away had she known basic self-defense techniques. "I...

The scarcest talent in American business is great public speaking, yet it's the one that delivers the biggest rewards for your company and your career.
Doubt it? Consider Jeff Bezos telling us about Amazon's latest reach, or Elon Musk giving us alook at the future of everything.
These are celebrity C-suiters, but there are other strategic public speakers who drive company and career success on a smaller stage. Consider the CFO who makes data come alive in understandable and interesting ways, the COO who doesn't talk about logistics but rather tells an awesome story about a cereal's journey from wheat-field seedling...

While the metropolitan Portland area has emerged in recent years as a main hub for sex trafficking, many organizations and individuals have stepped up to fight against this form of modern slavery and support the victims, most young girls between the ages of eight and 18.
The FBI Citizens Academy Alumni Association (FBICAAA) is one of those groups, whose annual Bowl-a-Thon assists survivors and educates citizens about trafficking's tragic effects on society. At this year's event, 196 ...
