    The Secrets to Unlimited Success with John Brink

    The Secrets to Unlimited Success with John Brink

    John Brink is a best-selling author, body builder,  fitness expert, CEO and owner of over ten companies, survivor, and thriver, who was born in Nazi-occupied Holland during WWII. He is also the author of three books and host of the On The Brink podcast series. He is also a fierce advocate for erasing the stigma of ADHD, something he has lived with his entire life.  
    John shares his story of growing up in harsh warlike conditions, and the horrors and hunger he experienced as a small child. From the time he could walk, his days often consisted of foraging for food with his brother and sister, surrounded by death and destruction, especially during the hunger winter of 1944/45. His mother was left to raise her three kids alone when their father was drafted into the Dutch Army. They wouldn’t know if he was dead or alive until the liberation of their village, by Canadian soldiers, on April 12, 1945.
    This was the exact moment when John determined he would one day move to Canada - the land of his heroes. He was only five years old when this decision was made. Like many others who lived through that time, John has lived his entire life with the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), resulting from being in a warzone.
    John describes how he finally made his dream come true, ultimately emigrating to Canada in July 1965, arriving in Prince George with $25.47 in his pocket. His journey in life and business has been filled with highs and lows. However, through his entire life, the one thing which has remained constant is John’s optimistic attitude, passion for entrepreneurship, and relentless work ethic.

    The Strength and Determination of a Warrior Mom with Tracy Slepcevic

    She is educated in the field of Complementary and Alternative Medicine and has dedicated over 14 years to researching various treatments and therapies for individuals with autism spectrum disorder. Over the years, she has worked with various doctors, scientists, advocates, and researchers, and she has made it her mission to educate families on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.
    The rate of autism continues to climb. Warrior Mom is all about addressing the underlying biological conditions that plague our children so they can live a healthier, more functional life. It is an alternative approach to healing and gives parents and listeners information on alternative treatments and therapies, including options for alternative medicine, nutrition, schooling, therapies, and more.
    Tracy shares her own personal story of having a child diagnosed with autism at the age of three. Along with the diagnosis came a dire prognosis from the medical experts who told her that her son would never be able to function on his own and require constant care and supervision.
    Instead of accepting such a dire future for her young son, Tracy immediately went into Warrior Mom mode, doing extensive research in the realm of nutrition, health, and a biomedical approach to healing her son. As a result, her son is a fully functioning healthy young adult, thanks to Tracy’s refusal to give up on her son.
