On Scar Bearers, I discuss my battle with necrotizing fasciitis (flesh-eating bacteria) and other stories, and how those experiences didn’t make me perfect; they made me better!
I also interview others who have faced major (salute) struggles and still persevered, reaching the summit on the other side of the valley and often climbing higher than before.
We also get geeky occasionally. 😉
Please join me and contribute to this imperfect, yet fantastic and fun community!

Can we all agree that Daylight Saving Time is a prime example that it's OK to leave some aspects of the past behind?

We talk about that and more.
Be sure to leave a funny or weird (but positive) review either here or on Scar Bearers, my podcast. I’ll select my favorite from the past week and read it during Thursday’s episode.

Scar Bearers Has Heart and Chris DT Gordon was an EXCELLENT Podcast Host!
Scar Bearers Has Heart and Chris DT Gordon was an EXCELLENT Podcast Host! I'm a bit biased as I was a guest on his podcast Scar Bearers recently. Chris was very thoughtful and he asked all the right questions to ensure to inspire his audience. We discussed overcoming a massive financial failure and the Simple 3 Step Formula to Get Your Mojo Back. Search for our episode to get the formula! We also discussed how I help aspiring speakers and "entrepreneurs with a message" to enable their courage and confidence and launch their speaker business in 90 days or less using my 3 Step Accelerated Awareness Framework. Thanks Chris for giving me the opportunity to contribute to your listeners!
Excellent host and amazing show!
Chris was an excellent host, and I had a fantastic time interviewing with him! He has great energy, an engaging sense of humor, and it really was a pleasure to get to talk with him. If you're looking for encouragement, empathy, and energy, then this is a show you need to check out!
Chris is full of heart in sharing his knowledge and experience. His guests are interesting and intriguing with their own visible/invisible scars and pass on their wisdom about getting through the tough times. Great show!
