For the last 20 years, among other things, I was an Executive Coach to CEO’s of larger corporations. Now I am moving on to MY Next Chapter. I invite you to join me in my journey. It makes no difference if you are retiring or making any significant change to your life. We are all on the same journey. So tune in and tag along.
We will talk about “what you can do next.” It might deal with transition, desire, curiosity, loss, or anything else that has to do with our Next Chapter in Life.
#303 Charlie Hedges: The Next Chapter’s Next Chapter
I have an important announcement to make today. This week we are beginning a two-month break on the Podcast and the Blog for the Next Chapter with Charlie. We will be most silent for the next two months, December 2023 thru January 2024. We will begin again the second week of February.
The time has come to Reconsider our purpose and our goals. For more than 9 years of blogs and 6 years of podcasts, our primary focus has been on In Search of Meaning, Adventure, and Awe. I am pleased with the work we have done. More than 300 podcasts and over 450 blogs.
However, as we approach a full decade of service, I feel that have grown significantly and I have learned even more about what I call “the purpose of life and the role of the fingerprint of God in all we do.”
We are living in a culture of confusion. Something is missing in life. And most of us are not even sure what that is.
It’s time to talk about it. I intend to devote the next two months to creating a strategy for discussing how to Awaken within Each of Us a More Loving World.
So today I have asked my dear friend, Wendy Hooper Ross, to partner with me in discussion as she interviews me regarding my mission in life and with the Next Chapter with Charlie.
#302 Rebecca Whitman: Manifest YOUR Abundant Life!
Our special guest today is truly very special. Rebecca Whitman created her very successful life, manifested it, and lives into it. Today, I want to ask Rebecca about what it takes to manifest and create the kind of life that matches who you are inside.
Just a couple of Notes on Rebecca.
Rebecca’s mission: I am passionate about empowering overworked and overwhelmed women to transform from BURNED OUT to Balanced, Beautiful and Abundant.
Rebecca’s Reputation: Selected as Top Coach of the Year 2022, by the International Association of Top Professions.
Just One Little Piece of Advice from Rebecca: Being a business owner is multi-dimensional and it can be quite challenging to successfully manage it all and trying to Lone Wolf it is setting yourself up for overwhelm, burn-out and eventually... often, failure.

#301 Terry Hershey: We Plan… Then Things Go Wrong!
I planned and prepared for our podcast today. And come showtime I was ready to roll.
One problem: Exactly at showtime, there was no guest to be found. Who knows why?
Instead of just cancelling the studio time, I made a quick call to Terry Hershey who immediately said, “What are friends for? Let’s do the show!”
So, here we are with a fun show. No prep. Little direction.
Just a title from a Krista Tippett quote: “We plan… and things go wrong.”

#300 Nikki La Croce: Thriving After “Personal Armageddon”
Our guest today is so fun. My personal assistant, the amazing Melissa DeLacey, loves Nikki and so will you after you hear what she has to say.
Nikki La Croce is yet another of those rule-breaking millennials. Just so you know, I love the Gen Z’s and Millennials who bring to us a refreshed sense of passion and purpose… with values that are both traditional as well as shocking. So fun!!!
Regarding a bit shocking… Nikki hosts a popular podcast with the title of “Who the F*ck?” Soon to be rebranded “Who the F*ck Am I?” Just the “name” of her show offers a bit of the edgy style of creative and loving people in the Gen Z and Millennial camps.
Her primary focus is all about human connection with a primary emphasis on the vehicle of “conversation.”
Check out Nikki’s podcast, Who the F*ck, HERE.

#298 Dr Dan Karlin: Psychedelics and Psychiatry
DON’T MISS THIS EPISODE!
Our fascinating guest today is a game-changer in progressive psychiatric treatments to manage mental issues like anxiety and depression and ADHD.
Dan Karlin is the Chief Medical Officer of a company called MindMed, whose mission is to improve patient outcomes by unlocking the full therapeutic potential of psychedelics and other novel therapeutic targets.
So yes. Today’s show is all about psychedelics and improvements in mental health.
As a hippie in the 1960’s I am not unfamiliar with LSD and psilocybin. So I have plenty of questions. Dan has plenty of responses.
Just a bit on our guest: Dr Dan Karlin joined MindMed as Chief Medical Officer in February 2021 following MindMed’s acquisition of HealthMode, the company he co-founded and led as CEO. Prior to HealthMode, Dan served as the Global Clinical Lead at Pfizer. He is Board certified in Psychiatry and Addictive Medicine.
In other words, Dan Karlin knows what he is talking about. So, let’s bring him on the show.
