On this edition of DeKalb Business Today, host Matt Holmes welcomes maybe the most diverse group of businesses in the show’s short history. Bio-One Atlanta owner Paul Cervino shares some of the good and bad from his work in cleaning up crime scenes. Local radio host Jacqlyn Charles talks about her non-profit work at Women Are Worthy. Vonetta Daniels rounds out the panel, tracing her path from military veteran to head of one of Metro Atlanta’s top emerging consulting firms, VYD and Associates.
Paul Cervino/Owner, Bio-One Atlanta
Bio-One Atlanta bills itself as the best choice for assisting victims and their families in cases of suicide, homicide or traumatic death.
Typically, someone will call and speak with the owner directly. The owner, Paul, will then go through in detail the steps that need to be taken. A time is then set for the Bio-One team to complete the job. Payment is addressed after cleanup as it is their first priority to complete decontamination in a discrete and compassionate method for all Bio-One clients.
They partner with cities, police, fire, emergency services personnel, victim services groups, hoarding task forces, apartment complexes, insurance companies and many more to provide the best and fastest service possible.
Jacqlyn Charles/Women Are Worthy
Jacqlyn Charles is the host of Women Are Worthy, a premiere radio show which tackles the many life challenges that women are faced with.
Originally from Brooklyn, New York, Jacqlyn is known for her high energy, positive attitude and engaging personality. As an up-and-coming motivational speaker, she uses her radio show as a platform to hone her talent for inspiring and motivating others to live in a state of excellence.
Jacqyln, who was once homeless, chose the specific format for Women Are Worthy out of a yearning desire to be a part of the solution. She realized that many problems stemmed from the negative relationships that women were having with each other. Jacqlyn uses her show as a vehicle to connect women, bridge gaps, build relationships and spark dialogue among and between women.
Jacqlyn lives her life on purpose with persistence and determination at the helm. Her goal is to inspire greatness in everyone that she comes into contact with.
