My Level 3 DAI-TBI Made Me Do It
This week we finish our conversation with Erica Haselton, who talks about her fight from near death after being hit by a tractor-trailer, to the accomplishment of running a marathon, and even loftier goals than that.

Just Like That
One moment Erica Haselton was a new mother heading to a football game with her family, and the next she was being airlifted to a hospital with a traumatic brain injury.
In a moment, everything in her life changed. Now she’s doing things some people never thought possible. Truth is though, she knew they were possible… even probable!
Last October I spoke with Deb Livingston, the founder and CEO of ReEmployAbility after she won the Comp Laude Gala People’s Choice Award. She told of her story and the story of Walter, an Injured Worker whose experience we are too familiar with within our program.
Taking just a moment to walk in another's shoes, those of the Risk Manager, Adjuster, Employer, and Injured Worker can present very different perspectives of the same situation. Then we can untimely help everyone navigate the hurdles that we, many times, put up ourselves.
Scott Mann Replay
Scott Mann was a guest on ReAudio back in April, featured in a 3 part series. He’s a retired Green Beret who has been the poster child of “You can do it… if you do the work”. He’s created a leadership movement called Rooftop Leadership, written a play that has been turned into a movie, started a non-profit to help veterans acclimate back into civilian life, and won the respect of tribal leaders in Afghanistan.
After the United State's withdrawal from Afghanistan, Scott and a team of dedicated colleagues organized the retrieval of individuals who would have faced terrible repercussions had they not been relocated. Scott's new book Operation Pineapple Express, details this experience and his perspective throughout it all, now available on Amazon.

There are everyday heroes that walk among us, and we don’t even realize it. Not the type that runs into burning buildings or pulls injured comrades off the battlefield, but the ones that simply go about their days, trying to make a living, navigating our crazy world, and doing the right thing because it’s the right thing to do. That’s Mike Threat, and I’m really excited to share our conversation with you on ReAudio. You can learn more about Mike and how he is impacting kids in the community through his business, 5 Star Futures.
