S06, Ep 03: Giving Healthcare a Destination, featuring David Mair

Whether it’s choosing a doctor, hospital or other medical provider, or paying for high cost prescription medications, health care is front and center in most of our lives these days. People are looking for solutions to spread their financial resources without sacrificing quality or skipping necessary care. It can feel like a rat race with no way out.

One of those solutions is something many of us are not aware of, something called destination medical care, the idea of traveling to medical center other than the closest one to come up with the best outcome, timely access to care and manageable costs. Where this was once seen as only for wealthy, individual patients, it’s now become a practical option for companies trying to manage benefit costs and individual patient alike.

Our guest today has taken this concept to the next level and not only made good care available to more people he’s found ways to make it affordable, available and practical.

So much of our lives are marked by special occasions: engagements, weddings, milestone birthdays and anniversaries and just plain important days.

Our guest today has made a career of knowing what diamond gifts work best on what occasion and for his expertise in charting the future of this fascinating industry.

S06 Ep 01: Discovering Family Through Writing featuring Fred Zuker

Our family history is a major part of who we are. Being able to record or write down that history is a special thing.

An important and impactful part of that process is capturing the memories of our senior family members. Seeing the past through their eyes as recalled in the stories they tell, makes life from another time come to life. It also helps cement a bond between generations that can’t be done in other ways.

Our guest today calls his experience working with his father to write his dad’s memoir one of the most inspiring times of his life.

S05 Ep 09: The Spectrum of Emotions featuring Melissa Caldwell Engle

We’ve all been asked “how are you feeling today?” Sometimes we know how to answer and sometimes we don’t.

Being able to sort out our feelings from our emotions can be a challenge.

While emotions are related to physical conditions, feelings are sparked by emotions. Feelings are the product of your brain’s perception of things. So when we suppress or unleash our emotions, those actions can have a tremendous impact on our physical health and life.

Our guest today has spent her career helping people identify and cope with their emotions and feelings.

S05 Ep 08: Navigating the Drama Triangle featuring Rachel Graham

Drama and conflict are everywhere in our lives today. In the books, movies and popular media we consume. And in the relationships that make up our lives.

Sociologists and healthcare professionals often say that the dynamic roles people play in relationships form a drama triangle. Each of us can, and has, claimed one or more of these roles in our lifetime. Understanding how to overcome these challenges is critical in learning how to interact with others and in living the life you want.

My guest today has found her way through the drama triangle and lived to tell about it. Let’s talk with Rachel Graham about her journey.

S05 Ep 07: Finances from the Back Office to the Boardroom featuring Tina O’Banion

Let’s face it, the world of work is changing. Who does what at a company isn’t what it used to be.

And that’s okay.

The outsourcing of jobs, responsibilities, and skillsets beyond the core capabilities of a company is an efficient way to get things completed. Bringing in talent specific to a function is a great way to maximize people power. It is a way of ensuring everything in a company gets done and done well.

Our guest today knows what it is like to have to navigate a variety of organizations and their numbers from the back office to the boardroom.

S05 Ep 06: What’s Trauma Got to Do with It? featuring Rachel Graham

Being able to know the difference between a symptom and a root cause, a trauma, is critical in understanding addiction.

We all have compulsive behaviors—drinking, smoking, gaming and electronics, excessive work or exercise or shopping or nail biting. It’s knowing—and facing what trauma caused these symptoms that is key in our understanding how to deal with addiction in our lives.

My guest today has learned the hard way how to identify symptoms, understand the trauma and relate them to addiction. Let’s talk with Rachel Graham about how best to learn about addiction.

S05 Ep 05: Keeping Things Spicy featuring Taffie Lynn Butters

What if you could invent a business that was a model of collaboration and high quality and featured products that tasted really good?

What if I told you that a business like this exists and is also native Texan-woman owned?

The micro-batched and artisan food industry is more of a movement. Creative folks who roast coffee, brew beer, make bread, or create specialty condiments, are in it for the creativity as much as the profitability.

Our guest today had a dream of crafting specialty foods she loved and knew others would find tasty. Let’s talk with Taffie Lynn Butters about how she made her jalapeno dream a reality and does good at the same time.

S05, Ep 04: Are Your Ready to Create the Life You Want? Featuring Dagmar Fleming

How do successful people become successful? They learn how to overcome obstacles.

In life we all encounter obstacles. But to realize our full potential we have to be willing to deal with massive shifts in our lives as well be open to making positive changes in our lives.

We have to be willing to understand and deal with our energy, our subconscious, and our conscious self.

In order to get through this process to find this positive direction in life we all need help. We can all benefit from fixing ourselves first with the help of an expert.

What if you could have a combination of a life coach, spiritual teacher and therapist all rolled into one? My guest today is just that and has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs and business people find their success.
