EP#241 - One Fine Day

January 8, 2021

In this episode, I interviewed the author of the book, "One Fine Day."  It was my pleasure to talk and discuss what Sameer's book was about but more importantly, his life story and how life will always have triumphs and tribulations but those tribulations are there for a reason.

He will share his journey and story of what he experienced with health challenges that put his life at a stopping halt and how he realized the beauty behind all the challenges and so much more.

Tune in and let us know what you think!

Who is Sameer Bhide?

In 2017 Sameer suffered a rare hemorrhagic stroke in his cerebellum, underwent two brain surgeries, and spent a month in a medically induced coma. His new bookONE FINE DAY: Overcoming Adversity and Embracing the New Normal with Grace and Gratitude(BMB Publishing | November 2020) is his unique story of resilience and hope.

After his stroke, Sameer’s entire life came crashing down around him. From a life-changing, debilitating illness to the loss of work, and finally a divorce, his amazing story of struggle, and how he came back from the brink of despair will be an inspiration for anyone who is facing any life change or adversity. One Fine Day is a reminder that the old axiom: “The only thing that stays the same is change” is the one absolute truth we can all count on and that successful transition requires successful adaptation.

EP#230 - Never Give In

EP#230 - Never Give In

November 27, 2020
Ever feel like you started off life on the wrong foot?  Or been dealt a bad hand in life?
 
I know I used to think the same way.  I literally started life on the wrong foot being born with bilateral clubfoot.
 
But, in this episode, I learned what I went through in my life through my own health issues, which was nothing compared to my guest.
 
Nathaneal will share his story of what health challenges he faced in life, and how he learned to overcome to create the life that he desires.
 
He didn't give in to the bad hand, or the wrong foot mindset.  He gave into his dreams and from there, transformation in his life occurred.  He created the impossible to make it I'M POSSIBLE.
 
This episode is for those who feel like life is just draining you and you wish you could just take a break or have a different experience.  Tune in and be inspired.  This one is for you!
 
Who is Nathaneal Zurbruegg?
My journey has taken me from being chronically ill for 30 years, having had a medical prognosis like “He shouldn’t be able to walk, talk and should be death six times by now”! 
 
As well as going through 3 failed kidney transplants; over 4500 life-saving treatments so far; several depressions that almost led to suicide and an 80% hearing loss that helps me to only hear what I really want to hear! :)
 
Well, I’m alive like never before! 
 
That all hasn’t stopped me from living a life above average. Becoming an entrepreneur, multiple award-winning global inspirational speaker, victorious mindset mentor, running a 30 km race, and more!

EP#216 - How the Envirome Affects You

EP#216 - How the Envirome Affects You

October 9, 2020

In this episode, I had the pleasure of speaking with Ted Smith.  Ted has a wealth of knowledge and is really up to some amazing things.  One of the biggest projects he is focusing on is the envirome and how important it is, we focus on this first, before anything else to help with our health and our mind.

Ted has a long list of credentials and I truly appreciate his passion in the work he is doing, not only for the environment, but also for the people.  His work will truly show how important it is to connect with nature and that, the more we connect with nature, the better it serves our overall health and well-being.

Who is Ted Smith?

Ted is an Associate Professor of pharmacology and toxicology, Deputy Director of the Christina Lee Brown Envirome Institute, and Director of the Center for Healthy Air Water and Soil at the University of Louisville School of Medicine. The Center for Healthy Air Water and Soil is focused on research that addresses the promotion of human health in urban environments.

Many projects within the Envirome Institute share a focus on the biophilia hypothesis that suggests our fundamental affiliation with our broader ecology mediates disease risk. Several of these projects require sensor and data technologies, not only sensors for monitoring ambient particulate matter, noise pollution and air toxics, but also for measuring physical activity or personal biometric data.

The Institute and Center develops comprehensive and integrative approaches for acquiring environmental and individual-level data that could inform and enable new types of community-based observational or clinical studies. Previously Ted served as Chief Innovation Officer for the City of Louisville Kentucky where he created the largest real time asthma surveillance research program AIRLouisville.

Ted received his B.S. in Biology and Psychology from Allegheny College, his M.S. and PhD in Experimental Psychology from Miami University and completed his post-doctoral studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Man Vehicle Laboratory. Ted was co-investigator on the Neurolab space shuttle mission.

EP#207 - Empowering Men The Alpha Hippie Way

EP#207 - Empowering Men The Alpha Hippie Way

September 5, 2020

In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing a good friend of mine who has been the podcast before (EP#43), Angelo Sisco.

Angelo and I have known each other for over 30 years and the man who he is today is inspiring to see.

We both grew up in Melrose Park, IL, went to high school together and so much more.

In this episode, Angelo and I discuss the lack of men learning what it is to be a man.  In many other cultures, they take men, at a specific age, and teach them what it is meant to be a man.

I know I wish I had this when I was growing up instead of learning from the hard knocks of life.

Who is Angelo Sisco?

On October 15th, 2002, Angelo Sisco was involved in a hit and run motorcycle accident that changed his life forever. In an instant, he went from being a 20-year-old entrepreneur to someone fighting to save his leg and his way of life.

After 8 surgeries, two months in a hospital bed, 5 months of daily rehab and the encouraging news from his doctors that any kind of athletics is permanently out of the question, Angelo fell into a deep depression.In 2009 he discovered CrossFit and everything changed once again. He had a new focus. He had a new purpose. He lost 100 pounds, which catapulted a 10-year journey that he couldn’t even imagine.

During the 2010s, Angelo opened O’Hare CrossFit and CrossFit Harwood Heights, consulted over 400 affiliates worldwide, co-founded Lifestyle Nutrition and Conquer Athlete, became an international speaker on how to succeed as an affiliate owner, coached multiple CrossFit games, competitors.

Angelo’s success in coaching and business gave him the confidence to begin what he would consider his most important journey of them all, self-development in 2015.  After years of deep inner work, reflection, and growth Angelo titled his journey of self-discovery, Alpha Hippie.

In true Angelo Sisco fashion, he followed what inspired him and began sharing his message through his podcast Alpha HIppie, and began mentoring other men on their path to self-discovery.

In late 2019 Angelo realized he was at a crossroads in his career.  A choice had to be made; to stay in a place of comfort or step into the identity that was calling him, Alpha Hippie.  Angelo chose to step fully into Alpha Hippie. 

In 2020, emits the most unprecedented time in our recent history, Angelo removed himself from all business ventures that were CrossFit related, moved his new family to San Clemente, California, and partnered up with Markus Gerszi to embark on a renewed more focus version of Alpha Hippie.

Alpha Hippie’s mission is to help overwhelmed men over 30, who are stuck in stress and burnout, reconnect to their mission and rebuild their lifestyle, so they can enjoy their free time again and get back to crushing it at work again.

Alpha Hippie share’s their mission via their men’s Facebook group, Be the Bad-Ass you were born to be, the Alpha Hippie podcast, and program for men entitled Alpha Hippie Foundations.

In his free time, Angelo loves to travel, eat great food, and spend time with the people closest to him.
