    Episode 145 with Honorable Cheryl Mason

    The incredible journey of the Honorable Cheryl L. Mason began amidst the

    picturesque foothills of Appalachia, in Portsmouth, Ohio. From a tender

    age, she learned invaluable lesson that life presents us with opportunities

    to overcome obstacles and leave a lasting imprint on others. Known for her

    tenacious spirit, Cheryl triumphed over discrimination and exclusion,

    defying all odds to become the first woman and military spouse Chairman

    of the VA Board of Veterans' Appeals. In that role, she transformed a

    struggling organization into a high functioning organization by putting her

    people first and empowering them to deliver record breaking results to

    veterans and their families.

    As a speaker and author, she inspires and encourages people through her

    fierce perseverance and caring leadership style in overcoming obstacles.

    Her story stands as a testament to resilience and the profound impact one

    can make on others. In her upcoming book, "Dare To Relate: Leading with

    a Fierce Heart," she unveils how her journey as a military spouse uniquely

    empowered her to embrace her unconventional leadership.



    Ms. Mason received her B.A. in Political Science and Psychology from

    Ohio Northern University and her J.D. from Creighton University School of

    Law. She is the spouse of a USAF veteran and daughter of a WWII Navy

    veteran. She actively supports the veteran and military communities

    speaking on subjects of leadership, transition, and suicide awareness and

    prevention, to name a few.

    Episode 143 with Jazz Cannon

    Jazz Cannon is a co-founder of Legend Group, an Afghanistan Humanitarian Evacuation Group that saves trapped Americans, Afghan Allies, Christians and other Minorities from the Taliban. Her goal is to restore America’s Honor in Afghanistan.

    For Jazz, the fight is personal. She was persecuted by the Taliban and Al Qaeda and had to flee from Afghanistan with her family at a young age. Surviving as a refugee, she settled in the United States, and found her true calling in helping people just like her.

    Jazz has served as an Immigration Resettlement Consultant, providing support to organizations that need to implement societal integration and cultural programs.

    She also has provided supportive coaching and referral to therapeutic counseling for young women having difficulties coping in the western culture and overcoming culture shock. Her goal has been to equip women with the necessary tools and knowledge to help them better respond to their integration challenges and chart a path to a happy and fulfilling life on purpose.

    Season 3 Episode 142

    Born into poverty to a drug-addicted mother, Rebecca Contreras had been a “lost girl” for almost two decades when, at age 19, she found herself to be a drop out, welfare-dependent teenage mother. As a high school dropout with substance-abuse and emotional trauma tendencies, she was well on her way to perpetuating the generational cycle of destruction and becoming a statistic lost to the system and her upbringing.   Her new book, Lost Girl: From the Hood to the White House to Millionaire Entrepreneur (Boss Media, released Oct 2021), recounts this journey from getting off welfare to advising a sitting U.S. president to eventually founding a thriving 100+ person company, her journey demonstrates that harsh beginnings or past mistakes do not need to define us; rather, we each have the power to forge our own pathways, especially when we have self-determination and the ability to recognize and accept helping hands along the way. When not sharing her empowering message or leading her consulting business, Rebecca loves to meet new people, making homemade salsa and her famous enchiladas, and staying connected to her community at her home church Shoreline Austin. She recently launched Lost Girl from Shoreline Austin, delivering a power-packed morning to over 5,000 in attendance and thousands more viewing online.
