    Season 2 Episode 4: Joel Hodroff- Money Innovation: Is the World Ready?

    I’m your host, Jeff Conner and I’m excited to jump into part two of my conversation with Joel Hodroff, my economic futurist friend who is trying to change the world through money innovation.

    Before we get to the show, I want to share with you a development with the foundation I started in memory of our son Waylon, who passed away in November of 2019. For those of you who have been listening for a while, you know that the #LITA podcast was inspired by Waylon’s life. If you want to learn more about why I started this podcast, go back and listen to Episode 3.

    Over the past year, we have formed a board, received our 501C3 status as a non-profit, and now have a clear mission and vision for our foundation. Our mission is to help parents and caregivers of troubled teens so they don’t have to go through what Waylon’s mom and I went through as we struggled to understand what Waylon was going through and to get him the help he needed. We meet our mission by being a resource to parents as well as connecting them to resources available. We are also facilitating support groups for parents and providing education through speaking event. You can learn more at www.waylonjames.org. While you’re there, please consider making a donation to help us grow and connect to more parents.

    We look forward to making a difference in communities by helping parents help their kids. Again, you can learn more and support us by going to www.waylonjames.org

    This week, we’re picking up where we left off with Joel Hodroff. We’re talking about how his dual currency system could actually work, how you can be a part of it and some of the barriers Joel has faced getting his creation into the world.

    He extends an open invitation to early adopters, so if you would you like to get in on this now, get in touch with Joel through his LinkedIn Page: https://www.linkedin.com/in/joelhodroff

    Enjoy as we conclude this timely conversation.

    Season 2 Episode 3: A Better Alternative to Win-Lose Competition Over Money (Part 1)

    Season 2 Episode 3: A Better Alternative to Win-Lose Competition Over Money (Part 1)

    Season 2 Episode 3: Joel Hodroff- A Better Alternative to Win-Lose Competition Over Money

    This week’s guest is Joel Hodroff. He is an inventor, a 40+ year business entrepreneur and an economic futurist. He often feels like a Stranger in a Strangle Land (if you Grok). Joel believes that emerging business models—based upon cooperation and sustainability—can rapidly solve our most pressing social, economic, and environmental challenges. All the needed technologies are already at hand to update money, economics and commerce towards an ever-improving quality of life for individuals, families and communities. He has been a Visa Innovation Provocateur and a Twin Cities Innovator of the Year. He’s playing for (and praying for) a “25-year overnight success story” and is only 2 years behind schedule.

    Joel is a great friend and mentor to me. We have spent uncountable hours talking about economics, money, life and love and that’s why this conversation is split over two episodes. We had a lot to unpack in looking at how we could build a better world of win-win-win cooperation over money.

    I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did!

    Episode 21: Nicole Billingsley- Where There is Life, There is Hope. One Woman's Journey from The Sex Trade and Drug Addiction to Becoming a Doctor!

    Episode 21: Nicole Billingsley- Where There is Life, There is Hope. One Woman's Journey from The Sex Trade and Drug Addiction to Becoming a Doctor!

    Just over eight years ago, Nicole Billingsley was a sex-traffic worker and drug addict who had lost all her parental rights to children. Fast forward to today and she is five weeks away from earning her Doctorate Degree and operates two recovery centers (Nivon Wellness Center) in the Twin Cities. Nicole is living proof that where there is life, there is hope.

    Please join me in listening to Nicole’s amazing story. Listen as she describes getting recruited into the sex trade and her experiences as an owner of an escort service in Las Vegas. You’ll hear how this led her to a severe drug addiction, time in jail and the harrowing experiences that went along with her lifestyle.

    Then hear how she and her husband, Von Shan, turned it all around. It’s an amazing story of recovery and redemption that should give all of us hope. You’ll hear how trauma and self-worth are the two greatest obstacles to recovery and living a thriving life. Nicole is trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), which is an evidence based therapeutic intervention to help clients recover from the effects of trauma and other issues. She is passionate about helping clients heal from the effects of trauma as well as mental health and substance use disorders.

    I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I did!
