Jerry Neale is co-publisher of Natural Awakenings (of East Michigan), along with his wife Tracy.


He is also the President/CEO of Michigan Healthy Living and Sustainability, Inc., the parent company of all of their many ventures!

On this week’s ‘Elizabeth’s Kind Cafe’, I had an opportunity to sit down with Jerry to discuss the magazine, it’s continued growth, and it’s expansion to ‘Natural Awakenings Pet’.

We also discussed their newest event, the Pet Jubilee, a pet-themed expo, the first of which is going to be held this October 8th 2011, in the North Oakland/Lapeer County area, with more in other regions in 2012.

Jerry and his wife Tracy also co-produce the Michigan Healthy Living Expo series. A local/regional natural health and sustainability fairs and events, since 2005.

They recently launched the Natural Awakenings Network as well, where card holders get discounts to businesses within the network throughout the country. We discuss the Network in our interview and you can also check out the Natural Awakenings website for more information. The first year is free, so now is the time to sign up!
