With all the crazy buzzwords floating around these days, you might be wondering what we mean when we say “badass”? Perhaps the first image in your mind is someone wearing assless chaps, careening down the highway on a motorcycle at 75 miles per hour. While we can’t deny the inherent badassery in that act, we do, in fact, believe that being a badass is subjective and truly in the eyes of the beholder. Not to mention, it encompasses a whole hell of a lot more than just adrenaline-packed motorsports. Badasses feel. Badasses cry. Badasses binge eat ice cream and might prefer four wheels instead of two. Feelin’ us? Each guest on our podcast has created their own definition of the word, from what it looks like to how it feels — with unfiltered honesty about the roadblocks along the way.

    Ella Dorner- Amnesia survivor “50 first dates style” turned motivational speaker. EP.4

    Ella Dorner- Amnesia survivor “50 first dates style” turned motivational speaker. EP.4

    Can you image waking up one day and not remember anything?  Ella Dorner is famously known for receiving Retrograde Amnesia at age 15 (a fancy way of saying she forgot every memory she had ever made).
    She was forced to re-learn everything from colors and numbers to the difference between humans and animals; not to mention, all of her closest friends and family. After years of re-learning she shares her story of recovery, giving an inside look to our everyday world from the perspective of a child.
    Yes Ellas story is “crazy” but it’s her perspective on life now that I wanted to bring her on this show.  It’s crazy enough to shift your life. Which makes absolutely sense as to why she is now a motivational speaker.
