On this weeks episode of Grease the Wheels, we detail the amazing journey of being an automotive technician in true Uncle Jimmy fashion. From being a mechanically adept or interested youngster with a POS car, to making the leap into tech school and eventually becoming a skilled journeyman, to eventually exiting the industry either on a gurney or through a rage quit - there is only one constant. Everyone's occupational journey is different. Sometimes there are different challenges and different levels of skill coming in, but a good attitude and knack for solving problems can improve your trajectory and make you go a long way in this industry. However, the goal as a technician should always be a higher rate of pay and if you are not being offered regular raises it may be time to leave the building. Of course, this depends on how valuable you are as a technician, because there are some instances where managers are genuinely glad to see you go and the shop actually improves. However, you should strive not to be that guy on the amazing journey and continually make yourself more valuable in the form of better training, knowing more systems, and being able to turn more hours. Also Uncle Jimmy breaks down the American educational system. This episode is distributed by The Wrenching Network.

Exploring the inner growth lifestyle topic of the day; how the inner growth journey, mindset and lifestyle get you to see and pursue your explorations of this in cosmic consciousness; how it is always a choice at your disposal, accessible by you in any and all moments; what changes this brings to your life when faced with life moments and circumstances; how mind and aaheart flow are a part of the process too; why your higher infinite human potential is always a major player and accessible through your ability to tap into your higher cosmic consciousness; and how the determining factor will always be you, your belief in life and yourself and whether or not you allow your heart to lead the way in flow with unconditional love and neutrality towards self and others, particularly when the unknown elements of life, the void space of tomorrow's unknown, presents itself to your conscious mind. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/maria-florio/support

Sobriety is not a curse. Laura's Story [16:04] Odette welcomes Laura Laura's last drink was September 16, 2019. Laura feels great and has ups and downs and is present and grateful. She lives in Austin, Texas where she owns a spa and does bodywork and energy work. She is working with Supernatural Recovery. She is a single mom to an 8-year-old daughter and loves meditation and yoga. [17:40] Tell us about your path with drinking Laura grew up in an alcohol abusive family. She started smoking pot and LSD at 14. She didn't want to drink because of her parent's drinking. She was raped at 16 and started drinking to overcome her panic attacks. She was imprisoned, tortured, and sexually abused for two years. She escaped from her abuser at 18, went to college and her PTSD symptoms became really apparent. She was hospitalized until she could become mentally stable. She continued drinking for 20 years. She was often functioning and often not, it swung back and forth. She didn't have any rock bottom moments, she lived in rock bottom for several years. After several false starts she was able to stop drinking in 2019. [20:57] What was your inner dialogue when you started using alcohol? Laura realized if she was drunk enough, she didn't have a panic attack. She was doing things that weren't healthy, but it was how she survived. She is also in recovery for an eating disorder. As part of that journey, she realizes she developed a lot of maladaptive coping mechanism that were survival instincts to help her disassociate. [23:27] How was sharing your abuse with the world? Laura said she didn't share very much. She minimized her early trauma. Integrating her alcohol recovery with heavy trauma therapy has helped her and as her sobriety time increases, more memories surface surfaced. The heavy trauma therapy helped her understand why it was so difficult for her to get sober. Her trauma and alcoholism to hand in hand. [25:29] Have recurring memories of trauma been a trigger for you? Laura said sobriety has been an awakening process. She has discovered some radical truths and uncovering new information about her trauma and her family of origin. Her therapist has helped her reconcile those awakenings. [26:35] How did you approach your healing journey? Laura wrote a book about her journey which is part of Supernatural Recovery. There are four cornerstones including: caring for your physical body (nutrition, hydration, exercise), trauma relief (body work, energy work, plant medicine, acupuncture), calming your nervous system (finding new ways to handle your body when her nervous system was activated), forgiveness and self-compassion which been the part of it. She is learning how to enjoy her life and avoid negative relationship patterns. [29:20] How did you discover these alternative tools? Laura said because of her body work practice, she is connected to many resources in the Austin recovery community. She learned to release trauma and find new ways to live her life. [31:14] How was early sobriety for you? Laura said she did not have a pink cloud. She cried all day every day for the first 90 days. Hiking daily, getting outside and the Recovery Elevator podcast were very helpful so she could be vulnerable and honest. At about 90 days, yoga helped her to feel better. When she began working with a somatic process, it helped her to become stronger and more committed. The book, The Energy Codes was helpful and has become a cornerstone of her program. [34:53] Tell me about the relationship between your alcohol recovery and your eating disorder? Laura said she played addiction whack a mole for some time. Healing isn't linear and learning to avoid self-abuse has ups and downs. [37:20] What role does community have in your healing? Laura said community is so important. Reconnecting with your source energy, people, and the world when you are recovering is important. She dipped her toes in AA and the 12 Steps, and found it wasn't for her. The Austin based yoga recovery community has yoga and meditation classes that have been instrumental to her recovery. Café RE was important to her in the early days. [38:55] Do you still go to therapy? Laura said yes! She began therapy before she got sober. Her therapist specializes in empaths and highly sensitives. When Laura wanted to stop drinking, worked for a year and a half. She had several false starts, and her therapist helped her get to the other side. Her therapist has inspired her to pursue a master's degree in counseling. [40:42] What has recovery made possible for you? Laura said what she is building with Supernatural Recovery and writing a book that is about to get published. Education is a part of her journey. She has a better handle on her emotional reactions. Service is also gift in her recovery. [42:30] Do you still get cravings? Laura said yes and she currently uses fancy olives. In her early days she would take a shot of apple cider vinegar. Calming her body and spending time in nature help. The disease is to disconnect, and the medicine is to stay present. Breathwork also helps. Yoga has helped her train her mind to be her friend. [44:45] What reactions from others have you experienced since you quit drinking? Laura said people in her life were relieved, happy, and proud. She has lost some friends along the way because she wasn't a happy, fun drinker. Sometimes people can't come with you on any awakening journey. At the end of the day, you must choose yourself. Letting go with gratitude helps avoid bad blood. [46:58] Have you been able to identify any triggers? Laura said her triggers are emotional, worrying about her daughter and getting hungry. When she thinks she might want a drink, she now can recognize the trigger, let go of the thought and solve it with self-care. Her daughter is learning to use those tools as well. [49:14] What does a day in your life look like? Laura said after dropping her daughter at school, she runs or walks, takes clients, yoga, works on her website or editing her book. On the weekends she spends time outside and hikes with friends. Teaching her daughter about self-care and handling your emotions is important. Her recovery has made her strong and help others heal. [53:57] When does your book come out? It is slated to be published through the Balboa press within the next 4-5 months. She is excited share the broad menu of recovery with others. [55:15] Rapid Fire Round If you could talk to your younger self, what would you say? It's going to be okay. You are an incredible, strong person. You are going to get through this and help others. What is your favorite NA beverage? Kin Euphorics https://www.kineuphorics.com What are some of your favorite resources in recovery? Supernatural Recovery, Café RE, and yoga. What's an unexpected perk of being sober? Her skin, her eyes are brighter and that increases her confidence. What parting piece of guidance can you give to listeners? Have compassion for yourself. The healing journey is not linear. If you are trying and you haven't made it yet, realize the more you beat yourself up, the harder it gets. You might need to say Adios to booze if … When a bottle is half empty and you go to the store because you are worried about running out.

From the beginning, the odds were stacked against Dave. His 15-year old biological mother had already made the difficult decision to put him up for adoption. On January 12, 1966 Dave was born in Phoenix, Arizona as an otherwise physically healthy infant, but where other babies had hips and legs, Dave had two flipper-like appendages extending from his torso.Doctors warned there could be brain damage as well. The fate of many children like Dave was lifelong institutionalization. After all, who would take on such a challenge?Nevertheless, on a whim, someone at the hospital called a local couple who took in foster children- Bill and Bee Stevens. The Stevens brought little Dave back to their humble, loving home where he learned the virtues and values that would propel him forward-farther than anyone ever imagined.https://davestevensspeaks.com/

Deena Shakir is a partner at Lux Capital, a venture capital firm that manages more than $2 billion. She is particularly interested in entrepreneurs building breakthrough companies enabling human and environmental health, access, and productivity. While her immediate background before joining Lux sounds familiar – she was a partner at GV (previously “Google Ventures”) – her path before that is a bit more unusual. As a journalist, Deena once hosted the pilot episode of a bilingual Arabic-English TV news series modeled after 60 Minutes. Deena was also a Presidential Management Fellow at the U.S. Department of State under Secretary Clinton, where she helped launch President Obama’s first Global Entrepreneurship Summit in 2010. She is the first-generation daughter of immigrants from Iraq and speaks fluent Arabic and French. In this episode, we discuss a range of topics, from her experiences as an Arab-American to her path from Washington to Silicon Valley. We also discuss the impact COVID is having on the venture business, and families like hers. Also covered: The unique craziness of online parenting groups. EPISODE EXERPTS On Education “Education, is an area I’m passionate about, where I've made investments like that in a company called Mos. Mos is using artificial intelligence to make the process of searching for financial aid easier. Clearly, there were already platforms for you to search for scholarships. However, they've made that much more sophisticated, and the process is so much easier now. And this was meaningful for me personally because that was a process I went through. I paid for college by myself, patching together all these scholarships. And now that is something that is changing the lives of students on a daily basis.” On Women in Venture Capital “ In terms of women in venture, I think we've obviously we've come a long way, particularly in the last three years. I joined the venture world maybe three months before that moment, if you want to call it that, where everybody realized this was an actual problem. It was in the summer, I think, of 2017 when a lot of this came to light. I think we still have a very long way to go. Some of the solutions may have potentially created additional problems around tokenism, for example, around cliques around certain folks or groups taking up all the oxygen in the room, et cetera. But that being said, I've seen some really great progress.” On Software “When it comes to software specifically, the democratizing piece of it is what gets me really excited. I get really excited about technology that streamlines analog industries -- that allows people to do things more quickly -- whether that means grassroots organizing or whether it means accounting.” On the Impact of the 9/11 Attacks “Being in high school, a teenager, during 9/11 -- being a Muslim and Iraqi American, that was a really pivotal moment for me. It was the first time where I felt like these two parts of my identity that really always felt like they were fluid and just part of who I am -- all of a sudden it seems like they weren’t to some people. That really was troubling for me.” Deena on Twitter https://twitter.com/deenashakir Lux Capital https://luxcapital.com Something Ventured https://somethingventured.us

“In meditation practice, the other thing that I needed to learn and was grateful to know is that it didn't have anything to do with a certain religious practice. In other words, the process of meditation can be used universally across any system of belief.” - Kellan Fluckiger Listen to more episodes of Your Ultimate Life: your-ultimate-life-by-kellan-fluckiger.simplecast.com What you are about to learnThe way meditation was not accepted a long time ago than we do today. At that time, meditation was the same thing as it isn't now. But it was viewed, at least in the circles that Iran is a weird thing that belonged to some Eastern philosophy or religion. I remember having conversations with people about meditation and some that I talked to viewed it as antithetical or contrary to, for example, Christian beliefs. If you are a Christian, you couldn't do meditation because that belongs to some other kind of religion, practice, and therefore, you are doing something Bad. For a long time I’ve been practicing, I even wrote a book regarding this which is titled “Meditation – The Amazing Journey Within,” if you are interested to know and curious about it this book is available on amazon. After I started meditating. I did read different things about what it was. And later, I found out that it’s the achievement of a state which is called no-mind. And then it's called no-mind in some different meditation practices, but no-mind is a state where your mind is empty. There is nothing on your mind at all. And it is in total unity with the universe. In other words, there is no thought occupying any space of your mind that it is empty, and you are just in a state of beingness. I started with what I used to think it was, which was some practice connected to a particular religion, and then it was some in the unattainable practice of having your mind empty with nothing going on. You don't have to subscribe to any particular belief system. And you don't have to be able to empty your mind all at once. I read in some of the books I’ve been reading and I will not going to be detailed about it, is that. One prison tried meditation as an experiment on the prison population. The astounding finding was learning to meditate and practicing it regularly for some time, had a more beneficial effect, and on anything else that they tried by a substantial margin. In other words, nothing else they'd done in terms of reforming the inmates or in terms of reducing violence had anywhere near the impact. It's only learning to sit quietly and meditate, which is the beginning of what meditation is for those that are new with meditation or at least haven’t done this yet. You can check this on YouTube how it works and finds samples. What is consciousness? If you think about where your awareness is, it seems like it's centered somewhere up in your head. Consciousness is portable. If you're doing those exercises, what you'll notice is that you are able without difficulty to move your awareness around, and you can move it to other places in your body. And when you do that, everything else just sort of fades out of focus. But as you learn to be aware of to focus on Direct and to use the consciousness that you have in the most potent, advantageous, and beneficial way, you will be astounded. And I call it a fantastic journey. Because most of us haven't spent very much time alone with our consciousness. We're busy taking input in what's going on around us and reacting to things. Learning to be alone and entirely focused on your awareness is a powerful tool to create your ultimate life.Key Takeaways“And so knowing that you can move your awareness and your consciousness anywhere you want to, is a powerful beginning, because your ability to do that is the foundation of your ability to learn to meditate.”“But you have infinite creativity and your ability to focus your consciousness and focus in focus it intently and completely on one thing at a time is that is a super powerful hack or shortcut or high powered skill that we don't develop enough. And that is a key to high performance, a key to success, a key to peace, a key to accomplishing great things and all kinds of other things.”Helpful Reference for youMeditation – The Amazing Journey Within if in case you are interested, you may get this on Amazon by clicking hereConnect with Kellan on your favorite platforms:Facebook: www.facebook.com/kellan.fluckiger3YouTube: www.youtube.com/c/ultimatelifeformulaLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/kellanfluckigerTwitter: https://twitter.com/kellanfluckigerYou can find out more about Kellan and how he can help you achieve your ultimate life by checking his website.

An insider's view of Reagan's War on Drugs and how the Trump administration continues to keep that war going in very different ways.This may be the most painful podcast I’ve done, not because Ed Weidenfeld isn’t a compelling guest, but because he suffers from Parkinson’s Disease, which makes speaking enormously challenging. But I urge you to stick with it -- you may have to wait a few seconds for Ed’s responses, but the words and insight that come from his mouth is worth the wait. Also, his is a great story: there aren’t many 70 year olds who once worked as a lawyer in the Reagan (War on Drugs) White House, and who today are unapologetic cannabis advocates and business owners. On this podcast Ed shares his view from the inside: The spark that unleashed Reagan’s WoD: “It had nothing to do with drugs or politics. Mrs. Ford had the Equal Rights Amendment, Mrs. Johnson had beautification. When Mrs. Reagan declared “Just Say No” suddenly everyone knew you could please the president by fighting the War on Drugs.”The hypocrisy of watching a policy he knew was wrong being carried out: “It’s the same message I’ve given to people working on the inside of the Trump administration -- is that with a major policy like the WoD you can effect a change at the margins, maybe... You become immune to the hypocrisy you’re participating in.” His entry into the cannabis business: “I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s a dozen years ago but I had gone to the University of Wisconsin in Madison and been exposed enough to marijuana that I knew it wasn’t going to do me any harm and, if I bought from the the right people, maybe it would do me some good. Which it has...I became so friendly with the fellow that I bought it from that we formed a partnership and now we’re licensed cultivators in DC and Maryland.”Why the Trump administration continues to hamper the growth of America’s next boom industry: “I’m just cynical enough to think it’s getting a push from the pharmaceutical industry, the alcohol industry, the tobacco industry, the Evangelical movement, and private prisons.” And... Where’s Melania? “I don’t have any idea of where she is but I don’t think her priority is finding a project that will improve America.” PS: Dr. Chin just posted this new blog on Women's Sexual Health and cannabis. It's an emerging topic and the blog is full of great information. Please share it widely.
As one of the youngest coaches on the WTA Tour, Tom Hill also has one of the most interesting back stories. Find out how Hill went from nearly attending law school to the top of the WTA coaching ranks in a few years' time. At the end of his college days, Hill was relaxing and working on finishing up his degree, thinking that his tennis career may well and truly be over. Then he got a phone call from Maria Sharapova's agent Max Eisenbud, and everything changed. In this edition of the Lucky Letcord Podcast, Chris Oddo chats with Hill about that important phone call and how it reeled him back into the sport, where he would turn a short-time gig as a hitting partner into first coaching gig with American Danielle Collins. Hill talks about getting a phone call from Collins late in 2017 when he had already taken an advertising job back in the UK. Collins needed a coach to go to Auckland. Hill, meanwhile, had worked up a plan to work in advertising for a year to pay for law school... How could he resist Collins' offer? He did not. The pair went on a six-month tear that saw Collins truly arrive on tour, firmly inside the Top 50. After a split Hill picked up with Maria Sakkari, as an assistant coach alongside Swedish legend Thomas Johansson. We talk to Hill about how much he learned from Johansson and how it informs him as a coach today. Of course we speak to Hill about Top 20 player Maria Sakkari, asking him what makes the Greek player special and how high he thinks she can go. Hill also gives his input on the importance of scouting and analytics, the rumors of a WTA/ATP merger and more. Thanks to coach Hill for his time and thanks to all for listening.
