    Ep.48 - A Fresh Start with Karen Carrington

    Ep.48 - A Fresh Start with Karen Carrington

    Karen Carrington is no stranger to challenges. 

    In 2001, she moved from Ottawa, Canada to Toronto without employment opportunities; with nothing but her young son at her side and a few dollars saved in her bank account.  

    Karen met this challenge head on and was able to secure a home, a job, and also met her husband as she carved out a new life for herself.  

    On today’s The Adverse Effect, we talk to Karen about her diagnosis of general Anxiety Disorder and the breakdown of her marriage. 

    We will also delve into her healing process and the time she spent reflecting in order to discover who she really was. 

    Along with being the author of “A Fresh Start”, Karen is also a motivational speaker and host on a radio talk show.  

    Listen in as she shares her inspirational journey. 

    “Being still in a time of healing is action. That is doing something. Being still is doing a lot more for you than ‘doing’.” — Karen Carrington

    Ep.47 - That Suits You with PK Kersey

    Have you ever heard of the 7/11 rule?  

    In today’s episode of The Adverse Effect, we talk to PK Kersey, President and founder of That Suits You. 

    When, at the age of 22, PK needed to attend a job interview, his pastor stepped in and brought him a suit. This very act of kindness was a pinnacle moment — not only did this fan the flames of confidence and secure him the role, it inspired PK to encourage this sense of confidence in others. 

    That Suits You is an organization providing men with professional attire to help them get back to work. The organization also does the same for high school seniors for prom and graduation. However, attire is only part of their vision. That Suits You also offers workshops and training concerning the importance of image and manhood as well as thinking beyond the norm of one’s abilities and expectations. Since its inception, the organization has helped 8,300 individuals. 

    “In the first 7 seconds of meeting people, they generally form 11 judgements about you.” — PK Kersey

    Ep.44 - The Girl In The Garage with Sharon Hughes

    Ep.44 - The Girl In The Garage with Sharon Hughes

    Warning: Discussion of child sexual abuse/ violence. 

    Imagine reflecting on your childhood and recognizing that your identity crisis began when you were five years old. But then nothing in Sharon’s childhood was ‘normal’.  

    On today’s The Adverse Effect, we talk to the founder of Launch Your Creativity, host of Living a Limitless Life Podcast and certified Identity Coach Sharon Hughes.  

    Sharon narrates her account of growing up in a sexually abusive household and how she has been marred by some form of abuse for most of her life right up to her diagnosis with PTSD as an adult. 

    It was not until Sharon let go of her past that she was able to step away from those dysfunctional patterns that drove her life’s story. She was able to see that she could choose better patterns for her life and, in turn, shape her own destiny.  

    Listen in to hear how Sharon was able to take back her life after dealing with years of parental neglect, abuse and abusive relationships.  

     

    “When you get to that point when you don’t want to live anymore, that is a huge sign that you need to get help.” — Sharon Hughes

     

    Today on The Adverse Effect: 

    Sharon gives her harrowing account of abuse.  How dysfunction can become our “normal”.  

    Why telling someone your story is key to beginning your journey to recovery.   Discovering your core values.   The importance of a good coach/counselor.  Equality between men and women.

Customer Reviews

Charles T Franklin ,

Honest Dose of Real-Life Inspiration

This podcast is one of the REALEST podcasts that I have ever heard because it shares the ups and downs of real people. You hear about people hurting, being confused....but also finding their way because of a moment, a relationship, a book, or a quote. That is the ADVERSE EFFECT.

That is what I’m looking for in a podcast not the sugar-coated “just be happy”.

It’s why I tune in, subscribe, Live Tweet my thoughts, and left this review. Many people feel that they are locked in by their past, their environment, etc. They need to find their adverse effect and this podcast will inspire them and give steps on where to begin.

A guideline to your greatest self

I’ve followed the show for a long time, so I feel like I can almost definitively say episode 39 is my favorite.

When ken and jasmin began talking about the concept of “becoming a loving parent to yourself,” I had to really sit and begin asking myself what kind of parent I’ve been to me.

Must Listen
