    My interview with Dave Combs

    My interview with Dave Combs

    I interviewed Dave Combs. Dave is a songwriter, author, musician, photographer, and publisher. A native of Erwin, Tennessee, Dave grew up in a family that enjoyed making music. Both his parents and his grandmother Combs played the piano, which began his musical journey as a church choir director and pianist. After college, Dave moved to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where he served as Minister of Music at a church while working as a computer programmer at a Fortune 500 company. His songwriting began with Rachel’s Song’s now popular standard, arranged and recorded by Gary Prim in 1986. Since then, Dave has written over 120 songs and recorded 15 albums of soft, soothing, and relaxing instrumental music that has touched the lives of millions around the world.
    Many inspiring stories about Dave’s lifelong journey with his music can be found in his best-selling biographical book, Touched by the Music: How the Story and Music of “Rachel’s Song” Can Change Your Life.
    I encourage everyone to buy his book and music, follow him, and be transformed by his insights.

    My interview with Travis Chustz

    My interview with Travis Chustz

    I Interviewed Travis Chustz. Travis is an author, blogger, YouTuber, Life coach, spiritual adviser, and developer of the H.U.G. method. In his book, Boxed In, Travis redefines very common words to make them more inclusive. The world is constantly changing, but the way certain words have been defined are pillars of the human experience. Words that most impact societies include family, parent, wealth, and perfect. Family and “parent are two of the most prominent words, if not the biggest, when describing human dynamics. Contrary to their standard definitions. There are many different types of families and parents. Wealth” and “perfect” are two words many people use as a benchmark for social status or goal setting. Boxed In will help bring a shift in perspective to make millions of you included. definitions. Travis uses stories from my life, as well as the lives of my influential and inspiring family and friends, to challenge our definition of these pillars. He desires to make people feel united through these updated perspectives.

Debbie is a savior of physical and sexual abuse as a child and became determined to make her dreams a reality. At the early age of 19, she opened her first dance studio.

She also became a choreography and choreographed the show 'Beats of Passion' at the Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. After going through a painful divorce with an addict, she lost everything, including self confidence that led to unhealthy nutrition and poor choices in her life style so much so that she gained 100 pounds. Through self love and determination, Debbie found herself again and was able to lose that 100 pounds and go on to become United States of America Ms. Nevada 2021 at 51 yrs.

    I interviewed Gregory Offner

    I interviewed Gregory Offner

    I interviewed Gregory Offner. Gregory is one of the most in-demand experts on the topic of professional performance and navigating disruption. His clients include Fortune 100 companies. He is often asked to keynote at conferences where industry leaders and executives turn to him for new perspectives on elevating performance, eliminating disengagement, and making work suck less. After enduring 15 surgeries on his vocal cords and nearly losing the ability to speak permanently, Gregory makes sure the words he uses matter in every conversation. As one who uses a lens of experience from both the corporate world and the world of a professional entertainer, Gregory feels that he can help the hearer from every background connect and understand the power of their words. Gregory believes he speaks not to impress but rather to share an understanding of how we look at the world of work, our mindset, and how those perceptions and perspectives impact performance. He also believes that we're here to do more than make money (though money is necessary) to make an impact.
    I encourage everyone to follow him and be transformed by his insights.

    My interview with Jem Fuller

    My interview with Jem Fuller

    I interviewed Jem Fuller. Jem has lived a colorful, global life. From barefoot backpacker to corporate leader, fire-dancer and traditional tattooist, a kindergarten teacher to motorcycle courier, masseuse and reflexology to laborer and travel consultant. Presently, Jem spends his time as a partner and father, coach, facilitator, and retreat leader. He is the author of the recently published book, The Art of Conscious Communication for Thoughtful Men, and can be seen delivering his TEDx talk on YouTube.
    Jem is a powerful guide who believes conscious communication is important. Authenticity is key. Radical self-acceptance of the past and present is vital for opening up future potential. Abundance is a mindset that brings much better experiences of being and therefore, much better results. Connection/immersion with nature is important. Leading with love is important. Balance is important. The quality of your relationships determines the quality of your life; nurture them.
    Jem's life mission is to help people create habitual perspectives and practices that bring ease, flow, and success.

    My interview with Inger Nordin

    My interview with Inger Nordin

    I interviewed Inger Nordin. Inger holds several degrees, and certifications MSc Computer Science and Technology, Executive Master of Business Administration, Project Management Professional, Effective Directorship, Business Accelerator Bootcamp, Millionaire Business Builder Camp, Ultimate Leadership Camp, and Life Enhancement Processing. She's an author, speaker, and life and business coach. She is the Founder and Owner of “IN Life Amplification” (life and business coaching, training, etc.) and had a property investment company in the USA which she closed in 2021. With over 35 years of experience working in different positions in big international corporations, she has mastered the complete sales and delivery process. Her drive, goal- and result-oriented focus developed her great leadership capability.
    After retiring from the corporate world Inger became bored and knew she had so much more to offer. She missed being a part of something. It was during this time that she came across a life-changing seminar that put her on a new path and purpose. As she began moving in this new direction, she realized she was on the right path when people started to approach her and tell her that she was inspired and had a duty to step up and be seen. This verified that she found her new calling.
    Her passion is helping people to truly succeed and so her coaching is almost always based on the learnings of Alan C. Walter; working with “processing” - aiding people via an efficient and effective method to recover their life-force particles so that they are able to gain mastery over all areas of their life.
    Her slogan: It’s never too late to start over - I did it when I was 65 - what’s your excuse?
    Inger states proudly that she has "always been told that I am an inspiration to others" - let me step up and be this at the age of 70.
    I encourage everyone to buy her book and follow her and be transformed by her insights.
