Chad Davis with Regus, Tracy Solheim, Author, and Emilie Christie with Mama Bakes Safe Cakes

Emilie Christie opened her company which specializes in making cakes, cupcakes, pizza and doughnuts for people with severe food allergies. For those with these allergies, even smelling the offending ingredient can send an allergic person to the hospital in anaphylactic shock, a life threatening condition.

The main allergies are to Wheat/Gluten, Eggs, Dairy, Tree Nuts, Peanuts, Soy, Fish and Shellfish. As one might imagine, she found that there was little available that a child or adult could eat in the prime food groups like pizza and doughnuts much less cupcakes and cakes as they use these ingredients extensively. Deserts and tasty stuff the non allergic take for granted were simply not available and what was available didn’t taste too good.

With her own severely allergic child and being a take charge sort of person, she set about to create tasty items for her own family. Experimenting with ingredients and finding sources for alternatives to the common ingredients used in so many products was quite a challenge. She succeeded and makes creations that taste as good or better than the regular versions, opening up having birthday parties, deserts, pizza and doughnuts to people who never even tasted these delights.

Asked if it is something she can box up and sell like a cake mix, she says that it’s a lot of work since it is a multi-step process that most would not want to undertake. Definitely not for people like your host who find putting a bowl of soup in a microwave challenging…

But the good news is with a kitchen right here in Alpharetta, you can order these delicacies for your family and pick them up, now work involved. You can reach Emily at 770-664-5638 email or on the web at

Bill Abroms company is ABCUS Inc. He is an expert in securing even the most sensitive data from loss or hacking using sophisticated hardware and software solutions. We’ve all seen the embarrassed company and governmental officials stuttering and stammering in front of microphones and being grilled on how it was their company or agency accidentally left 2 million detailed financial records and credit card data laying around on a laptop that was left on a bus., etc.

If they had contact Bill and his company, there would have been no story. The data would have been encrypted to top security standards and the moment the computer was used by an unauthorized person, much like the eponymous destructing tapes in Mission Impossible, the already encrypted content of the computer would be destroyed.

From thumb drives to data centers, from very small companies, attorney offices, medical professional’s clinics and offices, Bill and ABCUS have easily affordable solutions. Given the huge cost of data loss today, no one can afford to not lock down their sensitive information. So call the people Homeland Security and other government agencies have called to secure sensitive data, contact Bill and ABCUS.

Steve Miller with The Entrepreneur’s Source represents selected quality franchise opportunities. His business and calling is helping people in transition in the Corporate world explore an alternative career path  by being their own boss in a franchise. Steve also works with executives who are presently employed but who realize that creating a separate source of income outside their company is critical today.

With employees being almost temporary contractors without even the myth of retiring after a long career in a company remaining, many sensible people are exploring what the franchise business model could do to improve their long term security and income.

Taking a consultative approach is Bill’s approach to working with people he sees. He’s fully aware of what running a business is all about having built and sold a large one of his own and that puts him in the position of being able to walk you through the advantages of a franchise and explain it from an owners perspective.

But he’ll be the first do your homework, don’t rush into the first thing or even the thing you fall in love with He’ll insist you talk to successful franchisees in the franchise you are considering and more importantly, stress how vital it is for you to also talk with the ones who left the system. In short, he’s a pro.

Get in touch with Steve, you’ll find he is no nonsense, corporate in his approach, consultative plus you’ll get the wisdom of one who has years of franchise and business expertise to draw upon.
