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 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!

    #111: How to change for the better with Ironman Scott McDermott!

    #111: How to change for the better with Ironman Scott McDermott!

    Thanks for reading this! Please like and share this video, and subscribe to the channel. I would greatly appreciate it!   After a 13-year career in architecture made Scott overweight, sick and stressed, Scott shifted, became super fit, and then built a 15,000 square foot gym in 2002, Best Body Fitness. Next, he wrote a book about health and fitness called “If Your Body Were a Car, You Wouldn’t Treat it This Way”, as well as a fitness journal and a recipe book. Once in a place of being healthy, Scott decided to try the Sylvan Lake Half Ironman Triathlon to see if he could finish it. He finished well and qualified for and completed Ironman Canada 5 weeks later. Within a few years he was representing Canada at the World Championships in Holland and Australia as well as racing all over Canada and the USA.   

    In 2011 Scott entered a triathlon 2.5 times longer than Ironman, and at the Canadian Ultraman Championships, he finished 6th overall, (20 minutes from 2nd) in a 3 day race spanning 520kms. 2 years later at the Ultraman World Championships in Kona Hawaii he placed 21st in 2013. Scott has ridden a bike 400 kms in one day for Cancer research, ridden a mountain bike 700kms to Montana along the great continental divide, and completed every Spartan Distance including an Ultra Beast. In 2015 Scott was racing again at the Ultraman World Championships and crashed his bike at nearly 70 kilometers per hour, breaking many bones including his skull, and nearly died.  

    Making a remarkable full recovery he raced again 3 years later in 2018, placing 25th in the world while filming the process for an award-winning documentary, "Living the Warrior’s Code”. Scott, now a multiple-time international best-selling author, coaches people online and in person on nutrition, fitness and the mindset to succeed, as well as delivering keynote talks that are engaging, inspiring and fun!

Chris teaches us how to thrive with scars.

This podcast is a very unique blessing. Chris teaches us that no matter what you’ve gone through and even if you’re reminded of it every single day you can still have an attitude of gratitude. Every morning Chris wakes up and looks in the mirror at her life so radically changed for him but his attitude going forward is why people from all across the country gravitate towards him his positivity is infectious!

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!
