    Embracing Imperfection with Jason Freeman

    Like most of us, Jason doesn’t remember the day he was born, but he knows that he had a rocky start when his umbilical cord became kinked, depriving him of much needed oxygen for a short time. This imperfect circumstance resulted in Jason developing Cerebral Palsy, a group of disorders that gifted him with a unique style of walking and talking. Against seemingly insurmountable odds, Jason is living his dream, speaking to people across North America, hoping to inspire them to see the best in themselves, take the next step toward their dreams, and pass on the legacy of embracing our imperfect best to the next generation.

    Whenever Jason speaks to an audience, be it an intimate mastermind group in North County San Diego or an assembly of 1,500 high school students in Austin, Minnesota, he is absolutely, 100% committed to bringing his speech impediment with him. With his unique walk, awkwardly awesome message, a moving TEDx Talk, his Imperfect Best Book Series in progress, and unbridled love for country music, Jason is helping his family, friends, colleagues, and clients see their own circumstance as a potential stepping stone to reach for the stars.

    Flipping Beautiful with Kelly Falardeau

    Flipping Beautiful with Kelly Falardeau

    At the age of two, a single spark from a fire was all it took to change Kelly Falardeau’s life forever. With 75% of her body burned, Kelly adjusted to life as a burn survivor, but those scars had a massive effect on her self-esteem growing up. She decided to use her near-death experience, and the scars it left, to help people recognize that beauty is more than just the outer layers of skin – it comes from within.

    Kelly’s passion for sharing this message led her to a distinctive career in public speaking. Her many accolades include being on the TEDx stage twice, and being honoured as Fierce Woman of the Year. Her life story, titled "Still Beautiful" has even been launched on TV, and a video of her featured on Goalcast has reached almost 10 million views.

    When the pandemic hit, Kelly quickly pivoted. Did I mention she is also a 7-times International Best-Selling Author? Now she's a full-time Amazon Best-Selling Strategist, coaching people to share their own messages with the world. Even with this career pivot, the accolades are still rolling in. On Christmas Day 2020, Global TV named Kelly one of the "Most Inspirational People of 2020". Yet, she still lists one of her greatest achievements as her three beautiful children.

    In this episode:
    1. A spark from the fire (Intro).
    2. The “scarface” drawing (4:12).
    3. Marriage and children the joys and the sorrows (11:20).
    4. Redefining Kelly (17:43).
    5. The fragility of self-esteem (24:28).
    6. How to feel beautiful (29:23).
    7. Helping others write their stories (35:25).
    8. There is no magical switch (37:52).
    9. Flipping the triggers (42:35).
    10. Developing a perseverance toolkit (48:33).
