    LIFT Your Story with Emily Harman #1 Best Selling author, Founder of Onward Movement, Host of the Onward podcast and Life Coach

    LIFT Your Story with Emily Harman #1 Best Selling author, Founder of Onward Movement, Host of the Onward podcast and Life Coach

    What a great time chatting with Emily.  Her story is amazing, and it was interesting when she explained how people would point out the women in the Navy.  Different to see them involved and yet it was not that long ago.

    Her openness about her divorce, and later in life, her role as being there to support her ex as he was leaving this earth is so inspiring.

    From there to moving from a Naval Officer and Civilian to deciding it was time to do something SHE wanted to do.  Not something people were telling her she "SHOULD" do.  We are sure that many listeners out there can relate to that.

    Emily is a #1 Best Selling Author and her co-authored books can be found on Amazon.

    You can learn more and reach out to Emily by visiting  https://www.facebook.com/groups/onwardmovement

    LIFT Your Story with Dr Mark Ryall, Teacher, Athlete, Artist and Author

    LIFT Your Story with Dr Mark Ryall, Teacher, Athlete, Artist and Author

    What a fascinating episode.   Dr. Mark Ryall explains his book, a fiction, Age-Decoded, which is about genetic engineering technology and takes place in the future.  Mark says it's not "fantasy" science fiction, rather it is speculative science fiction based in the period of 2053 to 2256.

    When asked what inspired him to write this book, Mark says "well, I'm getting older".  :)  Also, being an athlete, he says he realizes how you do slow down as you age.   He was reading an article about genetic engineering and this is what led him to write this book.

    We discussed the pluses and minuses of genetic engineering and choosing to be age de-coded and not get any older, or reverse aging, which is also in his book.

    Very intriguing and a must listen to.

    You can find Mark on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook.  His book Age-Decoded is at most of the major retailers, Amazon, Apple, Kobo, and Indigo.

    More about Mark:

    Mark Ryall recently retired from teaching economics at Royal St. George's College (Toronto) and Hillfield Strathallan College (Hamilton) for a combined twenty-four years. His first love in high school coaching was always cross country running. Mark’s newly released speculative fiction Age-Decoded is his first novel. He wrote it to educate himself and the world about the imminent tsunami of CRISPR genetic engineering technology. The story peers 100-200 years into the future, allowing the reader to critically imagine and feel the effects of this incredible new scientific frontier. Mark represented Canada in the 2019 World Age-Group Triathlon Championships in Lausanne, Switzerland. He enjoys acrylic art and currently serves as a volunteer cross country coach for Westdale Secondary School in Hamilton. His education includes BSc, MBA, and Ph.D. (University of Toronto).

    LIFT Your Story with Dr. Tomi Mitchell, Board Certified Family Physician, & Mental Health & Wellness

    LIFT Your Story with Dr. Tomi Mitchell, Board Certified Family Physician, & Mental Health & Wellness

    We start by asking Dr. Tomi Mitchell what a Board Certified Family Physician is.   She explains she's done over and above the necessary to practice.  Dr. Tomi is certified in two provinces in Canada.  She also explains that you are required to continue with the education yearly, and she has done so for the past ten years.

    Dr. Tomi went through a near-death experience and shares this story with us.  After giving birth to her second child, her daughter stopped breathing, and Dr. Tomi required resuscitating her and taking her to the hospital.  They told her it was just reflux, however, Dr. Tomi did not take that as an answer.  Eventually, they did put her daughter in ICU.  After doing so, she was relieved, however, she went to the washroom and began hemorrhaging very badly.

    That was the first of five hemorrhages.  The last one was so painful, and at this point, Dr. Tomi was losing faith.   She said that it was a strange feeling to feel the pain for her toddler, and her feelings for her newborn were different because she hadn't had the chance to truly connect since birth.  Very compelling story.

    We also spoke to Dr. Tomi's Mental Health and Wellness Coaching business, and how this part of her life is fulfilling, knowing the changes she's making in other people's lives.

    You can learn more about Dr. Tomi by going to www.holisticwellnessstrategies.com

    More about Dr. Tomi Mitchell:

    Dr. Tomi Mitchell is a Certified Mental Health & Wellness Coach who helps working professionals overcome mental health challenges & burnout.  After a decade of running a medical practice, she was left burnt out and frustrated with the limitations of the traditional health care system. She decided to pivot in her career and wholeheartedly pursue a holistic approach to healthcare.

    Dr. Tomi Mitchell has been featured multiple times in KevinMD, the largest online social media platform for doctors. She is also a regular contributor to Ariana Huffington's ThriveGlobal. Dr. Tomi Mitchell is an Executive Contributor to Brainz Magazine, a leading European Magazine for professionals. She is a regular feature on Pic TV Network.

    LIFT Your Story with Trina L, Martin Technologist Speaker and Author

    LIFT Your Story with Trina L, Martin Technologist Speaker and Author

    Trina starts off by telling us what a "technologist" is.  She said having worked in technology for the past two decades, she branded herself as such.  She did computer forensics, and cyber-security, and cyber-intelligence prior to it becoming popular. 

    We chuckled about the old computer programming and coding systems, and the fun of watching the growth and changes in technology.

    Trina spoke to her books.  She wrote her own and also co-authored.  Her labour of love is called From A Mess to Amazing - Seven steps to create a life you deserve.  In her book, she speaks to her journey through life and how she overcame them.

    Trina was in technology, as noted earlier, and also is a retired naval officer after thirty years of service.  As the youngest of four children,  she said she grew up with a verbally abusive mother.    She said her words shook her.  On the good side, she became a type-A person, however, she explained that it led her to some abusive relationships.  Although in her business life she was thriving, her personal life was not.   Through her own personal development, she was inspired to write her book.

    Trina is also an advocate of encouraging women of colour to realize the potential they have to move into the profession of technology, that there is a great opportunity to do so.

    You can find Trina and her book at www.trinalmartin.com and she is also on LinkedIn.  Her book is also available on Amazon.
