Whether you are a CEO, a teacher, a mom, a coach, or an ice cream scooper, your speaking skills are important. Our ability to communicate effectively affects our relationships, career and self-esteem. And the great part about it is that with practice, ANYONE can be a great speaker. 

Grant Baldwin, a professional speaker, entrepreneur, author, and family man has taught hundreds of people this skill because he knows first hand that speakers are not born, they are grown. Years ago when his wife (high school sweetheart) was five-months pregnant with his first daughter, Grant made the decision to quit his job to find something he was passionate about doing. 

On this podcast, Grant talks about: 

The excitement/pressure during the time he was soul searching

How he knew his calling was to be a speaker

The first steps in becoming a professional speaker

What to do if you freeze while speaking

Listen to Grant's podcast, The Speaker Lab, or check out his course on speaking, available at GrantBaldwin.com.

Last week, I drove down to Tijuana to visit a few of my friends who did this crazy thing and bought a hospital (my friends are kind of crazy, but the good kind. Passionate crazy). So of course, this isn't just any hospital. It's a groundbreaking cancer-research hospital that specializes in alternative medicine and Gerson Therapy and is going to revolutionize the way we treat cancer. It's called The Centro Hospitalario Internacional del Pacifico S.A., or CHIPSA and they are creating miracles. I don't know if I'd believe it if I didn't see it with my own eyes. 

One such miracle who I met on the trip is Ryan Luelf. He is a 35-year-old father of three, from Tulsa, Oklahoma, who was diagnosed with Stage 4 B-Cell non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma a little over a year ago. The treatment options available to him through traditional medicine were grim. In fact, Ryan’s own doctor stated that he had a higher chance of dying from chemotherapy than the lymphoma in the next 6 months.

Unwilling to accept those options, Ryan investigated his options, including the Gerson Therapy which is an all natural protocol developed my Dr. Max Gerson that utilizes an organic, plant-based diet, with raw juices, coffee enemas to strengthen the immune system and re-ignite the body’s ability to heal itself. He started that immediately and when he couldn't find alternative therapy in the U.S., that's when he went to CHIPSA. 

He was diagnosed in October 2015 and tests from June have showed complete resolution in some areas and near complete resolution in others. Ryan says that in two weeks, he hopes to have scientific proof that he's 100% cancer free. 

On the podcast, Ryan shares his story and talks about:

  • Why he chose alternative treatment
  • The tough resistance he faced from friends and family about not going the traditional route
  • Overcoming getting scammed out of $45,000 in the Philippines
  • The mindset that kept him going through the tough times
  • What's next for him and his family

Read more about Ryan's story and specific treatments he used on CHIPSA's blog.

There are a few common excuses we like to give about why we aren’t living a healthy lifestyle. 
 
“I don’t have enough time."
“I can’t afford a trainer."
“I don’t belong to a gym or have equipment."
Or, “I JUST HATE WORKING OUT!"
 
Dai Manuel, a fitness entrepreneur and lifestyle mentor, understands this and his workouts, blog, and book, The Whole Life Fitness Manifesto, serve as his answer for all of these excuses. Dai’s mission is to empower people to live a FUNctionally fit life.
 
“What I found is that when I really dig into why someone wants to lose 20 pounds or why someone wants to get in shape and get them to connect their long-term vision emotionally, it shifts them from 'I should get in shape to I want to get in shape.’" says Dai.
 
On this episode we discuss: 
  • Dai's struggle as an obese teenager and how he turned his struggle into his purpose
  • Debunks the myths that keep us from getting in shape
  • How to create vision for our health
  • What led him to his decision to quit drinking
  • What’s the first right step to take towards a healthy, FUN life.

Without us even knowing, our thoughts, which can be crazy as f***, dictate how we feel and the actions (or lack thereof) that we take. In one 10 minute mindfulness meditation this week at the beach, I identified some of these. And they were wack.
