Eric Holtzclaw and Susan McMullen interview Ari Fleischer and Aly Moler of Frozen Pints featuring beer-flavored ice cream.

Ari grew up in New York and moved to Atlanta to attend Emory University. He graduated with a degree in business in 2006. After school, he couldn’t leave the warm weather and southern hospitality, so he’s been in Atlanta ever since. Before starting Frozen Pints, Ari worked in client service with The Nielsen Company. He supported both the Georgia Pacific and Coca-Cola accounts and gained valuable experience in market research and the retail world, but his true passion has always been craft beer. He started Frozen Pints in late 2010 after a serendipitous accident involving beer and an ice cream maker. He’s worked with his partner, Aly Moler, to build the business since then. His favorite part about his current job is the “R&D” – someone has to try all the beers to make the next great flavor…

A Virginia native, Aly Moler moved to Atlanta to attend Emory University, graduated in 2009 from Goizueta’s undergraduate business program, and began her professional career in the corporate world. She worked in Global IT at Coca-Cola before securing a position with The Nielsen Company, where she consulted with clients on marketing and market research solutions. It was during this time that she met Ari, they bonded over an appreciation of good food and drink, and she joined him in developing the innovative concept. She recently left her day job to focus on Frozen Pints, and has enjoyed the challenge of pioneering a new space in the food and beverage worlds. She’s also glad that all her time spent as an aspiring foodie is paying off.

What can the dying teach us about living?

When you’ve compassionately aided people leave the planet for 30 years—helped them be comfortable, reduced their pain and listened to their words—what emerges is not just a way of dying, but also a way of living.

In her book, TRANSITIONS: A Nurse’s Education About Life and Death, Hawkins, who spent the heart of her career as an oncology and  hospice nurse in Oklahoma, offers 60 tenderly-rendered short recollections of those experiences that stayed with her…the one’s that touched her heart, took her breadth away and opened her to a greater wisdom. It’s that wisdom which she shares with us—how we can live better, more richly, more wisely and with greater love before we, too, transition—and look back to wonder what we missed.

Alyssa Phillips is more than just a cancer survivor, she’s a miracle.

It’s been a long road for Alyssa but by sharing her life-changing story, she hopes to empower others with what she used to turn two bone marrow transplants and a less than five percent chance of survival into a beautiful new beginning. Alyssa wants people to know that there is no such thing as “impossible” and that miracles can and do happen…she’s living proof. Alyssa encourages all of us to transcend our circumstances, physical or otherwise, by choosing to view the challenges, and even the tragedies, of our lives as veiled lessons and gifts that can break us in beautiful ways into the people we were always meant to become—if we let them. “It’s the choice that changes everything,” she says. “And it’s why I know that, no matter what it looks like, Something beautiful is happening™.”

You can also get a nice dose of inspiration from Alyssa’s uplifting blog, including all of the original “updates” she shared during her pivotal cancer journey. Alyssa continues to share her incredible story as she moves beyond her miraculous turnaround—both inside and out—to help others with what she’s learned and how she did it—including some of her favorite tips, trips and pics from along the way and even an excerpt from her upcoming book!

Eric Holtzclaw and Susan McMullen interview Lee McCracken – a writer, editor, social entrepreneur and three-year breast cancer survivor. At 50, Lee says God turned her mess into a message, and she created and trademarked Yes, Ma-am! Mammograms Are A Must®. The social enterprise makes a sassy and southern statement about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. The pink T-shirt (www.YesMaamTee.com) helps to fund annual screenings for uninsured women. The message is clear: “Get your squeeze on!” and be breast-aware to put a stop to late-stage cancer diagnosis. Lee welcomes advocates of early breast cancer detection, known as Ma’ambassadors, to join the campaign at www.Facebook.com/YesMaamMammograms and on Twitter at @YesMaamMammos.

Lee lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, with her husband of 29 years and also is a veteran writer and editor. Her book, “A Prayer and a Pink Pedicure,” which tells the story of self-discovery and spiritual preservation following loss, a cancer diagnosis and a crisis of faith, will be published in 2013.
