Wellness Expo Offers Tips On Maintaining Healthy Body, Mind, and Spirit

ATLANTA – Are you over-worked and exhausted by the demands on your time from your career and family? Is stress impacting your health, mood, and weight? An Atlanta business strategies organization is hosting a wellness expo to help those struggling with stress to experience healthier, happier, and more fulfilling lives.

The Live & Thrive: Health & Wellness Expo will be held Saturday, November 8, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 200 Peachtree Street in downtown Atlanta. More than 400 people are expected to attend the day of food, fun, and motivational talks. The expo will feature workshops led by wellness and holistic healing experts that teach attendees how diet, exercise, and spiritual development can prolong and improve their quality of life. Industry vendors will exhibit natural health, beauty, and home products. Visitors can also sample organic foods, learn about alternative medicines, experience meditation, yoga, enjoy stress-relieving massages and much more.

The Live & Thrive Expo is being sponsored by Rafael Escoto, the host of the upcoming cable television show, “Lavida In Atlanta Health and Wellness Show”, which is currently in production in Atlanta. Escoto is also the founder of Executive Trade Expo, (ETE), a business industry support network that promotes healthy lifestyles for business professionals and offers strategies to help entrepreneurs succeed.

“If you want to thrive as a business professional, you can’t have a broken spirit and poor health,” Escoto said. “The health of your mind, body, and spirit can influence how successful you are in business and in your personal life. It is essential that we as business professionals take a break from our busy schedules to exercise, eat healthy foods, and find time for rest, relaxation, and reflection so that we can truly succeed and live long enough to enjoy the fruits of our labor.”

Live & Thrive Expo will feature more than 40 vendors and wellness professionals who will share insight about preventive and integrative medical treatments and alternative medicine including Dr. Russell Friedman of Alternative Health Solutions; Dr. Allen Carter, a clinical psychologist who has helped to transform lives with his award-winning television show, “Who Am I?”; Dr. Donovan Christie of the ANWAN (All Natural Weight and Nutrition) Regenerative Center; Gloria Parker of NuSkin Products, which offers anti-aging skin solutions; Eric Hampton, a motivational speaker and meditation instructor who founded “Collective Awareness Group,” an organization that promotes self-improvement and social consciousness; and holistic health coach, Versandra Kennebrew, whose “10 Essential Holistic Weight Management Tips” earned her a fan favorite recognition in “Best Self Magazine’s Best of 2014” contest.

Admission to Live &Thrive Expo is $10 with pre-registration at Tickets at the door cost $15. Parking is $5.

Live & Thrive Expo founder Escoto believes that as a business coach he has a responsibility and moral obligation to spread the message of wellness.  He has appeared on Dr. Carter’s transformative show, “Who am I?” and is the author of the self-help book, “Missing Links.” Escoto’s business organization ETE offers coaching, business plan development, marketing assistance, and other professional services to entrepreneurs and aspiring business owners. ETE analyzes the performance of businesses and recommends processes to maximize effectiveness. The business outreach is striving to build a collaborative network between metro Atlanta firms that can increase their profitability and bring new jobs to communities. Escoto, who has more than 30 years of experience as an entrepreneur, is one of the nation’s successful small business owners.  Escoto worked in the fashion and interior design industry as a CEO who grossed nearly $3 million annually in domestic and international sales. His Washington D.C. firms, Interiors by Rafael, Home Furniture & Design, and In-House International were advertised in leading publications including “Architectural Digest”.

Escoto hopes that the Live & Thrive Expo will encourage business professionals to lead healthy lives. “As we progress in business, we must also remember to grow in our physical, emotional, and spiritual development,” he said. “It is the key to happiness and achieving success that is sustainable.”
