Season 3 Recap
We're at the end of season 3, and it’s time to take a look back. I ask my guests, “What advice would you give to your younger self?” not to ask what they would change, but to understand what they’ve learned along the way. The final episode of season 3 compiles my guests’ answers to that question. I hope you find their advice both inspiring and motivating as you pursue your own career. And if you have advice for your younger self, please share it with someone you care about.
Linda Olson, Motivational speaker, Author, and Triple Amputee
What’s next? None of us knows what’s going to happen, and life requires constant learning and adaptation, says Linda Olson. Change is inevitable, but we can accept, adapt and innovate when it happens. When Linda became a triple amputee, she was motivated to maintain her independence and to be of service as a doctor. Following a 30-year career as a radiologist, Linda has now written a memoir. Her story’s key themes are resilience, hope, and taking control.
Gary Buckmann, Coach, Author, and Inspirational Speaker
What are you afraid of? Fear is a liar, here only to cause more fear, says Gary Buckmann. Awareness of this fact can help you overcome and eliminate fear, something Gary knows about first hand. As a competitive gymnast in college, a catastrophic injury left Gary paralyzed. He fought his way back to compete again, and this experience shaped his approach to coaching. His philosophy focuses on learning the basics to build the knowledge you need to adjust to any situation and move toward your goal.
