About LaFontaine E. OliverLaFontaine E. Oliver was named president and general manager of WYPR in Baltimore in July of 2019, after six years at WMFE in Orlando, Florida. During his first year, Oliver helped launch a new health reporting desk and the weekday podcast, The Daily Dose, as a vital source of the most relevant news to the community about the COVID-19 health pandemic and the state's response. Recently, Oliver led efforts to acquire WTMD from Towson University to preserve the beloved music discovery format. The deal for the purchase of WTMD closed in November of 2021, bringing the powerhouse local public radio stations together. At WMFE, Oliver oversaw the expansion of its newsroom and local news coverage, adding beat reporters, expanding its public affairs program and launching an award-winning health desk. Under Oliver's leadership, major efforts included spearheading community engagement efforts to get the station better connected to diverse and underserved communities and spearheading a marketing campaign designed to encourage active listening and civil discourse in the community with 90.7 WMFE acting as the conduit. Oliver returned to Baltimore after a successful stint running WEAA, licensed to Morgan State University, from 2007 to 2013. There, he launched a daily syndicated talk show, and his work in growing the station garnered him an invitation to present to HBCU presidents and vice presidents at the Annual White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities Conference in Washington, D.C., in 2009. In his 20-year broadcast career, Oliver has been involved in several commercial, satellite and public media initiatives to grow service to diverse audiences.

In this episode of the Psychedelic Medicine Podcast, Joel Castellanos joins to discuss the emerging topic of psychedelic therapies for pain-related conditions. Dr. Castellanos is a Board certified physical medicine and rehabilitation and pain management physician and an associate professor in the department of anesthesiology at UC San Diego school of medicine. He earned his medical degree from University of Toledo college of medicine and has since completed a two year program in healthcare administration during his residency at University of Michigan, as well as a fellowship in pain medicine at UC San Diego school of medicine. Most recently he completed the integrative medicine fellowship from the University of Arizona. In this conversation, Dr. Castellanos introduces the topic of psychedelics as a therapeutic modality for various pain conditions. Dr. Castellanos explains that much of the pain management field focuses on neuromodulation as the basis for particular therapeutic techniques, so psychedelics—which have profound modulating effects within the brain—naturally seem promising. However, research into this topic is still developing, with studies from the seventies providing some initial data which is now being corroborated and expanded by contemporary research. Dr. Castellanos shares the details of this work, explaining how combined psychedelic treatment and mirror box therapy could prove to be particularly efficacious for individuals suffering from phantom limb pain. In light of the upcoming trials led by Dr. Castellanos and his colleagues at the Psychedelic Health Research Initiative at UC San Diego, he also discusses certain special considerations for working with amputees as guides or facilitators of psychedelic therapy. The double blind randomized controlled trial investigating the efficacy of psilocybin therapy for phantom limb pain will be conducted first and is currently enrolling. This study seeks to test the efficacy of psilocybin therapy for this condition as well as elucidate its potential mechanism of action through brain imaging. Click here to enroll. In this episode: An overview of the literature on psychedelics and pain Albert Lin's experience treating his phantom limb pain with combined psychedelic and mirror box therapy Why psychedelics may be a great alternative to many current treatment options for chronic pain Stories of healing resulting from psychedelic therapy in patients who have suffered with chronic pain How to enroll in Dr. Castellanos' upcoming trial for patients with phantom limb pain Quotes: “It's really interesting to me that neuromodulation - modulating the nervous system - is such a big part of pain medicine—and no one had really looked at psychedelics as an option when they are something that really modulates the nervous system in a profound way.” [4:24] “I don't want people to think that this is going to be a panacea, that this is going to be the cure for everything and everyone's pain because we need to do the research, we need to do the work and really answer the clinical question on who this is going to be most efficacious for.” [7:50] “Where there has been the most evidence so far and the most work done is in the headache patient population, which is definitely needed. There are so many people who suffer from migraines, from cluster headaches, and it can be really debilitating.” [17:45] “In the same way that patients who have had PTSD or have severe anxiety or depression it helps to do some talk therapy with those [psychedelic therapy] sessions, maybe some movement therapy during the psychedelic sessions may be beneficial [for treating pain].” [23:26] Links: Enroll in Dr. Castellanos' upcoming study through PHRI at UCSD Dr. Castellanos on Twitter Psychedelic Health Research Initiative at UC San Diego Psychedelic Medicine Association Porangui
When it comes to taking care of people, everyone in business says they want to, but very few people put together action steps to taking care of their team. Tim Metzner, Co-founder of Coterie Insurance, makes it his mission to build a culture where people not only want to work, but feel inspired and energized at the end of their day.“It's a big part of what drew me to this company, to this opportunity, to this industry. There's just such a chance to build a great long-term legacy company. I just love seeing people come alive in their careers because it trickles over into their personal lives and vice versa. Treating people as humans, building a great place for them to work. If you can do that, the impact you can have on a community is massive because we all become better humans when you know that 40 plus hours a week that we're dedicating to work is enjoyable. When we leave energized at the end of the day, when we leave actually wanting to come back and do more work. We have so much fire, to go do other good stuff in our lives.”You might think of insurance and groan, but Tim shows how a solid insurance company can really elevate your business. His team leverages their expertise to make sure business owners work on a company, not just in a company, and are able to keep their companies going strong. Be sure to listen to this episode of Marketing Trends to hear his secrets of satisfying and exciting both customers and employees. Main TakeawaysYou have to be adaptive: When marketing to new customers, you need to be ready to go to where they are, and speak a language that they understand. The best way to achieve this is to build a team of people who are smarter than you in new areas you don't know about.Put your products in places of relevance. Your customers shouldn't have to hunt down what they need. You want to make sure it's easy to get what they need, where they need it. For example, by putting the option to buy insurance on jewelry right when you buy it - it increases those sales (and eliminates fraud). Think about where you can present your products where customers already are. Start your culture right away: There are a lot of leaders who think culture can wait until you are larger, but the truth is culture is going to be there either way. You want to be intentional about it right away. If you want to attract people who are talented and great human beings, you need to have a vision for the type of company you want to build early.Key Quotes“Some people will tell you until you've got a company, don't worry about things like culture and don't focus too much on values and vision and some of that. I just think that's the wrong approach. Because if things do start to take off and you make it, you're going to have a culture either way. You can either be intentional and create that, or it can kind of happen on its own. I just believe, if you want to attract people who are not only really talented, but just great human beings, you got to have a vision for the kind of company you want to build and you want to attract them to that.”“As you scale, it gets really easy to lose sight of what's happening on the front lines. What's that customer service, that customer advocate hearing and seeing and feeling? One of the things we implemented is called core coaching. Every three weeks, everyone in the company has a one-on-one with someone more senior in the company, and that entire one-on-one is focused on hearing from them. Hearing about what they're seeing, feeling, thinking we need to do better and also just about them in their career.”“Many people don't start a business because they're great at starting businesses. It's because they have a thing they love doing. Or they realize they're really good at a thing. So we want to help educate them on, what does it look like to actually work on the business, not just in the business. How can we use some of our own past experiences as business owners to help educate people along the way? Not just about insurance, but about making their business a better business.”“We built Coterie as a remote-first company from the beginning. All three of us co-founders agreed that there's no reason to limit ourselves to talent just in Cincinnati, Ohio. As much as I love Cincinnati, there are amazing people all over the place who want to have freedom and flexibility to work for a great company right from where they are.”“Build a scalpel, not a Swiss army knife.”BioTim Metzner is co-founder of Coterie, an API-based commercial lines insurance startup. Coterie empowers agents and brokers to secure coverage for small businesses faster and easier than ever. Previously, he was co-founder of Differential, a leading digital product studio and of OCEAN, a faith-based non-profit organization that teaches, mentors, invests in, and gathers entrepreneurs around both business and biblical principles critical to their success.

Welcome back to the podcast! In this episode Greg and I are answering some often asked questions about how to get your spouse on board. This could be getting them on board with your big dreams and goals, or simply on board with the process of growing and improving. There's nothing worse than starting to learn, grow, and develop as a person but then to feel that your spouse is getting left behind or, even worse, creating their own self-sabotage. One question we received said, As I've focused hard on self-improvement over the last 18 months, and not seen my wife doing much to try to improve with me, it has been hard not to judge her and become frustrated with her. That has been especially true with our parenting. It's extremely painful to observe her parenting and I'm trying to think of what might be affecting her parenting negatively.” We'll discuss several approaches than can be used to help make tricky situations like this one easier. We'll also explain what a ‘breaking point' is and why every marriage needs to face one — or several of them. This episode is sponsored by our Creating an Extraordinary Marriage Bundle. Why settle for a a good or okay marriage when you can have an extraordinary one? Marriage isn't static. It's constantly in a state of flux. So if you're not actively working on growing closer in your marriage then by default you're working on your divorce. You can't afford to spend even one day working on your divorce, so if you're not already being proactive it's time to make a change. Many of us believe that if our spouse would change then your marriage would be better. But the truth is you can't wait around for you spouse to change. It is within your power to improve your marriage — even if your spouse won't change. That's the good news — it only takes ONE person to ‘be the tide' and make a difference in your marriage. And that person is YOU. Learn how to create regular daily, weekly, monthly and yearly rituals to remind you that you're a man and woman in love — and building a legacy. Unite as a couple, peruse shared dreams, and become an example of love and relationship that everyone — including your children — admires and looks up to.

Well, we don't have to guess what Dr. King, Jr. would say. He left for us powerful words that seem eerily applicable to the current crisis we face. In 1957, six years before his speech at the March on Washington and eight years before the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, Dr. King, Jr. gave another speech in Washington, D.C., commemorating the third anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision in Brown vs. Board of Education. Standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, King remarked that “all types of conniving methods are still being used to prevent Negroes from becoming registered voters.” Continuing, he argued that, “The denial of this sacred right is a tragic betrayal of the highest mandates of our democratic tradition.” Before a crowd of thousands, King made a plea to those in power and said, “Our most urgent request to the president of the United States and every member of Congress is to give us the right to vote.” See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

I wanted to let you all know about Idaho Family Policy Center. IFPC is currently the only explicitly Christian policy organization in Idaho politics. Toby Sumpter and Israel Waitman serve on the board, and the president is Blaine Conzatti, a member of our sister CREC church, Kings Congregation down in Meridian. Blaine and IFPC have been leading the efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, end abortion in Idaho, and protect children from the transgender agenda. Basically, Blaine is a really strategic voice in Idaho politics, and he represents many of our biblical and constitutional concerns in Boise. IFPC is a brand new ministry and as such is in significant need of donations to help fund it. I know we all have many commitments to other good ministries, but if you are particularly concerned about Idaho politics, this is one way you can have a very direct impact.

Michael and his wife raised two children sugar-free from the womb to six years of age. For over 30 years, Michael has worked closely with others to help them regain lives ravaged by various substance use disorders. In this episode, Michael talks about all the reasons why he decided to go entirely sugar-free for over thirty years. He explains why many people are reluctant to call sugar a real addiction. Then, Michael reveals what exactly is going on in the brain when we eat sugar and what happens when we stop eating sugar.

When he got sober, he started to use sugar instead of drugs and alcohol. Flour and sugar were just the staples of his diet. One day, Michael read a book called Sugar Blues by William Dufty. You can check it out here: https://www.amazon.com/Sugar-Blues-William-Dufty/dp/0446343129/benazadi-20 Eventually, he started putting out his own information about sugar addiction on the internet. [12:00] Why People Don't Recognize Sugar As An Addiction People are going blind and losing limbs because of sugar addiction. Some people biochemically cannot ingest sugar. 95% of all people that lose any amount of weight gain it all back and then some in the first year. The word addiction is still stigmatized. So many people are not willing to consider sugar addiction a real thing. [24:00] What Exactly Is Happening In The Brain When We Eat Sugar All of the brain reward chemicals are affected by sugar. In fact, they are manually manipulated by sugar. When you stop eating sugar, your dopamine receptors will be thinned out. If you have a sweet tooth craving, you are looking for a dopamine hit. You can give sugar to a one-year-old, and there are no ethical worries. If you have high-stress events in your day-to-day, maybe you eat sugar as a response. Then it's time to remove the stressful situation so you can ditch the sugar. [37:15] Caffeine Use Disorder Is Accepted By The Medical Community Caffeine use disorder is actually in the DSM. The medical establishment has seen what happens when people overuse caffeine. So, we still have to fight for people who have sugar use disorder. Science is catching up around sugar addiction, and hopefully, people can get the help they need from the medical community. [41:20] Tips For Making The Transition To Keto In 2022 Keto is going to be hard for about seven to ten days. Most likely, you are not going to feel well. If you have a sugar addiction, you are going to be lethargic, and you are going to be depressed. This is normal because your dopamine is finally getting a rest. However, in the long run, you will have a better mood, you'll sleep better, and you'll be able to focus more. [50:15] All About The Quit Sugar Summit 2022 The 8th Annual Quit Sugar Summit is coming up in 2022. It goes through January 24 – 30, 2022. You'll hear from some amazing speakers like Dr. David Perlmutter, Dr. Richard Johnson, Dr. Nicole Avena, Bitten Jonsson, Cristy “Code Red” Nickel, Ben Azadi, and much more! The diet industry is a $70 billion industry, and no one believes it. At the summit, people are selling nothing. Instead, they are just bringing information to people that need it.

I am joined by Tracy Primeau, a retired Shift Manager at Bruce Power who is now on the Board of Directors at Ontario Power Generation (OPG). She is a member of the Nipissing First Nation, and was the first woman to make her way to Shift Manager from the shop floor. She discusses her first hand perspective as an energy worker while Ontario transitioned from coal to nuclear, and the life quality benefits it brought to both workers and the province broadly. Primeau shares her experience of what it is like working at a nuclear plant and leading company engagement with surrounding communities, especially as an indigenous woman. We discuss the importance of nuclear energy companies engaging towns as collaborators rather than groups merely to be convinced, especially given the deep-rootedness of the “nuclear waste story” in indigenous communities. Finally, we discuss paths forward for nuclear in indigenous communities, developments underway, and the likelihood of meeting stated goals to get indigenous communities in Canada off of diesel by 2030.
Decluttering where do you start - it's a common question. And the next big question is how to get family members on board to help you create a clutter-free home. If you need decluttering help you can ask, though leading by example is usually more effective. Not every family member has the same incentives for tidying up or doing weekend closet organization that you do. And without the same cleaning motivation, they may hang on to things that spark joy or for reasons different than your reasons. The first place to start when getting rid of stuff you don't need or want is not to buy it in the first place. Today's Ask a House Cleaner sponsor is #HoardingWorld where we focus on #decluttering and changing your relationship with stuff.

Is your personal or professional life not where it should be? While you may think that "creativity" isn't essential to success in life, today's guest will vehemently disagree. He's the former CEO and now Executive Vice-Chairman of the Board of the legendary company Cirque du Soleil. Today he will share why creativity is crucial to professional and personal success and shares his own journey with Cirque du Soleil to improve in every area of his own career. During our headline, we'll pull the cover off of a new crypto scam. This time, celebrities allegedly endorsed a crypto coin, only to dump their own holdings after prices skyrocketed. Of course, this left investors with--reportedly--next to nothing. What can we learn from this? Joe and OG share their thoughts, which might not be what you expect. We also help answer Micah's question about how to further his personal finance education. Doug will also share his trivia. Enjoy!

Libertarians can be exhausting. Because libertarianism has so many attractive features and strong statements about “freedom” and “liberty” they have a lot of perceived political high ground when arguing with them. The problem with libertarianism - as it is with Marxism, capitalism and so many other philosophies - is that it's entirely theoretical. Trying to construct an actual framework around the concepts they hold dear is like arguing over how Santa Claus fits down the chimney. That said, there's a lot to like about some of the principles of libertarianism and its acolytes are growing in numbers every day. So let's have at it. In part one of this two-part series we'll unpack the origins of the philosophy, its dark beginnings and define several strains of the discipline.

I'm not going to lie…this episode will blow you away. Today Adrienne Miller and Mary Beth O'Connor join me to share their powerful stories about their journey to a substance-free life. And equally as important the joy found on the other side of their courageous journeys.Leaders in the national movement to change the faces and stigmas of recovery, this conversation focuses on women's empowerment. We also explore: Adrienne started using alcohol and other drugs to cope with childhood trauma, severe stress, and lifelong mental health challenges at the age of 14. She spent the next 16 years drug-hopping and at 30 years old, found herself divorced, failing out of college, and severely dependent on alcohol and marijuana. Finally recognizing that her drug use had changed from being the solution to all her problems to becoming a problem itself, she joined Women for Sobriety (WFS) in 2009. After some initial false starts, she has been living a substance-free life since 2010. In recovery, Adrienne rediscovered the joy of volunteerism through Seattle Area Support Groups (SASG – now Peer Seattle). She served as a peer support group facilitator for both SASG and WFS before becoming a Peer Recovery Coach. She returned to university and received her BA in Psychology, then went on to receive additional education in chemical dependency counseling. Adrienne was invited to serve on the Board of Directors of WFS and SASG and has served as Vice President for both organizations. She was appointed President/CEO of Women for Sobriety in 2018 and has dedicated herself to empowering the women that use the New Life Program to help run the organization and expand its reach, bringing WFS back into the national recovery conversation.Adrienne has used her New Life confidence in public speaking, including giving the Keynote Address at the 2013 Seattle AIDS Walk to thousands of rain-soaked walkers. She has appeared on multiple podcasts on behalf of WFS, including the Beyond Addiction Show, Soberful, and SoberSoul Recovery. Adrienne appeared on Mental Health Mondays by She Recovers has presented multiple webinars through the Cigna Behavioral Awareness Series: Coping with Substance Use Disorders.For Mary Beth, childhood abuse and other traumas led to substance use disorder (addiction). Beginning with alcohol at age 12, she spent several years abusing various drugs. She found methamphetamine at 16 and started shooting up at 17. Mary Beth struggled with meth until she was 32 years old.By incorporating ideas from multiple sources to build a secular (not 12-step or faith based) recovery plan that works for her, Mary Beth has accrued 27 years of sobriety. She used similar techniques to address the trauma and related anxiety as well.Mary Beth is a board member for LifeRing Secular Recovery and She Recovers Foundation. She speaks on behalf of these organizations and about multiple paths to recovery.In 2020, Mary Beth published two opinion pieces about substance use disorder and recovery in major national publications.She has published memoir pieces and completed a book-length memoir. Professionally, 6 years into recovery, Mary Beth attended Berkeley Law. She worked at a large firm in Silicon Valley, then litigated class actions for the federal government. In 2014, Mary Beth was appointed a federal Administrative Law Judge, a position from which she retired in 2020.To learn more about Mary Beth and Adrienne and the organizations they work with check out: www.womenforsobriety.orghttps://wfsonline.orgwww.facebook.com/WomenForSobriety/www.instagram.com/womenforsobriety/https://firstname.lastname@example.orgMary Beth's website: www.junkietojudge.comLifeRing: www.lifering.orgShe Recovers Foundation: www.sherecovers.org
The Courageous Ask Brian Kreeger pt 2 We have all seen the news reports of someone of some esteemed importance getting caught up in some kind of scandal. Politicians. High level executives. Hollywood elite or sports superstars. It's all so shocking and everyone wonders how they could have allowed it to happen. But there are others that fall into the same temptations. Pastors. Ministry leaders. Non-profit leaders. It doesn't have to a major scandal, affair or corruption. Often, it's not. But the stigma and embarrassment of what happens can cost marriages, careers and, in some cases, the people involved may even take their own life! My guest today is Brian Kreeger, author of the book https://amzn.to/3HTbpLx (“The Courageous Ask: A Proactive Approach to Prevent the Fall of Christian Non-Profit Leaders.”) Brian was the founder of a great non-profit health clinic in a major metropolitan city – who lost his identity and, well, let's say, “fell from grace.” His calling is to share his story and what he has learned and observed in others – all for the purpose of helping Board of Directors and others in various leadership positions to prevent their leaders from succumbing to these temptations. Brian's book, https://amzn.to/3HTbpLx (“The Courageous Ask: A Proactive Approach to Prevent the Fall of Christian Non-Profit Leaders,”) is a great read and will be a great resource for your leadership teams, from churches to businesses. Today is part two of, what has been, a great two part interview! Knowing that this could happen to me, you and others – I mean, we see news reports of “scandalous” things happening all of the time…and the bigger the name the more the headlines. What can we, as individuals, do to prevent these types of actions? Your board of directors said something to you about “what responsibility did they play” in what happened? Did this even register that they had failed in some way, for what had happened? You share one story in your book about a CEO of a multi-million dollar corporation who had done a great job for many years; well respected in the community; did a lot of charity work, etc., suddenly found himself involved with some kind of charges for something that happened to one of the participants at a camp he sponsored. In your book, you share that this event caused him to become even more loyal to the Board and to the company. Can you share the how and why of a situation like this actually cementing the bond of loyalty? As you have progressed on, you've done speaking and consulting, how have your broached this subject with business and ministry professionals and their board of directors? Are their signs that indicate something is amiss? Things that, say a Board of Directors needs to be watching for? Are there things that may not be observable by the Board of Directors but someone who is close, perhaps assistants or other associates may observe? How should someone approach a Christian leader, especially a ministry leader, be it pastor, director or otherwise, with their concerns? You talk about “the fall was an anomaly or was it caused by something more serious.” And you use the story about “snow in Disney World” as an example. Can you explain that for us? Brian, this all so interesting. I could just keep going on because this book is applicable, more than most people know or understand, to things happening all around us today. Not just in ministry, but to CEO's of non-profits and even corporations. Folks, what happened to Brian Kreeger can (and does) happen, more often than you even realize. But the better method would be to prevent the fall from grace in the first place. That is the purpose of Brian's book, https://amzn.to/3HTbpLx (“The Courageous Ask: A Proactive Approach to Prevent the Fall of Christian Non-Profit Leaders.”) You need to get a copy of this book, right now, today.

In Korematsu v. United States, the Supreme Court said that laws that distinguish between people on the basis of race are subject to strict scrutiny. And it purportedly applied that standard in Brown v. Board of Education, the case holding that racial segregation in schools was unconstitutional. In the past couple of decades, however, a new question has arisen—should strict scrutiny apply to laws that distinguish on the basis of race in order to help minorities?
15 years after the Supreme Court ruled that school segregation was unconstitutional in Brown v. Board of Education, many schools across the South were still segregated. Some school districts actively blocked desegregation. North Carolina passed legislation authorizing tuition grants to white private schools, sometimes called "segregation academies." Members of the KKK held rallies in North Carolina, describing desegregation as "anti-Christian" and "communistic." When the Federal government pressured school boards to comply or lose their funding, many responded by shuttering Black schools and assigning Black students to formerly all-white schools. It was called "one-way desegregation." In a very rural part of North Carolina, Black students and their families decided to fight back. We speak with Dr. Dudley E. Flood about his work desegregating every school in North Carolina. Say hello on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Sign up for our occasional newsletter, The Accomplice.

Tune in for this fun conversation we have with Bew on this episode of Inside Design with Kandrac and Kole! In this episode: [01:00] Bew's background and career path & connecting with biographer, Christopher Taunton [08:00] The story behind branding and trademarking Summer Classics [12:45] How Bew's near death experience inspired him to write his book in hope to tell his heritage and story to his family about building his businesses [14:30] How Gabby Home came to life [20:00] Bew's take on living a successful life and what that means to him Key Takeaways: Being an entrepreneur takes passion, determination, and grit. Building a business doesn't happen overnight and can have many twists and turns along the way. Making mistakes should be celebrated. It means you tried something new and it didn't work. This gives you something to learn from and improve upon. Being successful means being a risk taker. Quotes: “I'm opening a gym called ‘resolutions.' For the first two weeks it will have exercise equipment, then convert to a bar with yoga pants as the dress code.” “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. the greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young”…. - Henry Ford Links Mentioned: https://www.sherwinwilliams.com Sponsor: Looking for an exceptional finish?

Du kennst sicher jemanden für den diese Folge unglaublich wertvoll ist. Teile sie mit ihm, der Link ist raykhahne.de/630 . Bevor wir gleich mit der Folge starten, habe ich noch eine Empfehlung für Dich. Diesmal in eigener Sache. Es ist Zeit durchzustarten. Du willst Deine Arbeitszeit reduzieren und gleichzeitig Deine Gewinne steigern? Du willst wissen welche Werkzeuge die ganz großen Unternehmen anwenden, die den kleinen Unternehmen aber verborgen bleiben? Dann ist der Unternehmerkader spannend für Dich. Unter raykhahne.de/kader kannst Du Dir genau anschauen, wie unser Jahresprogramm Dir dabei hilft Deinen perfekten Unternehmertag näher zu kommen. Du wirst lernen mit welchen Leistungssportlereigenschaften Du als Unternehmer noch besser wirst und damit Deine Lebensbereiche gleichmäßig steigerst. Mehr dazu unter raykhahne.de/kader Hallo und schön, dass Du dabei bist! Der letzte Bereich Inspiration ist angebrochen. Die letzte Special Folge, um mit euch zu teilen, was sich für mich persönlich in Portugal verändert hat. Der Bereich, wo es nicht um Geld oder Anerkennung geht, sondern nur um das, was Du für Dich machst. Das Erste, was ich für mich festgestellt habe: Unternehmen zu helfen. Das ist einfach meine Mission. Ich habe nach dem Urlaub gemerkt, wie ich noch mehr Energie habe, noch mehr Power und Lust, all diese Dinge, die ich mir vorgenommen habe, in die Tat umzusetzen. Für mich ist es ein großes Geschenk, dass meine Inspiration und mein Beruf miteinander verknüpft sind. Unternehmern weiterzuhelfen ist das, was mich im Tiefsten berührt und worauf ich einfach Bock habe. Der Podcast wird weitergehen. Das schenkt mir so viel Kraft und auch Ruhe. Wenn ich merke, welche Feedbacks kommen, habe ich Bock drauf, noch mehr davon zu haben. Es geht mir darum, in einem Bereich tätig zu sein, in dem ich das Leben anderer Menschen positiv beeinflussen kann. Es ist auch voll mein Ding, nicht nur Sachen im stillen Kämmerchen zu machen, sondern eine Gruppe, ein Team zu befähigen. Das gibt mir wahnsinnig viel Freude! Bei Inspiration und Beruf gibt es einfach Überschneidungen. Wie viele Lehrer ich kennengelernt habe, die mit ihrem Job happy sind, aber in ihrer Freizeit etwas ganz anderes machen. Es ist so wichtig, an der Stelle für sich eine klare Abgrenzung zu haben, weil das eine darf das andere nicht auffressen. Ich liebe es, Wow-Effekte zu haben. Meine Frau und ich haben ein bisschen reflektiert, was für uns der schönste Moment in Portugal war. Ich habe tatsächlich genau an einen Tag, an eine spezielle Situation, genau an eine Welle, die für mich besonders war, gedacht, weil ich das erste Mal mit meinem neuen Board im Wasser war und da sehr gute und auch sehr große Bedingungen herrschten. Da habe ich gemerkt, dass ich auf ein anderes Level gekommen bin. Mein großer Wunsch ist es, ein Barrel zu fahren, einen Wasserbogen, der über Dir bricht. Mit dieser Welle habe ich gemerkt, dass ich meinem Wunsch so viel näher gekommen bin. Das ist das, was mich festhält: Diesen Wow-Effekt für mich zu schaffen, aber genauso auf der anderen Seite zu erzeugen und sich selbst einen Kopf zu machen „Wie kannst Du so einen Wow-Effekt bei anderen schaffen?“ Manchmal nur durch Kleinigkeiten, durch Wertschätzung, ernst gemeintes Lob, etwas, womit die Leute nicht rechnen. Das hat sich für mich noch einmal mehr manifestiert, weil ich gemerkt habe, wie ich den ganzen Tag total elektrisiert davon war, wie schön dieses Erlebnis für mich war. Für mich ist das ein wesentlicher Punkt, gezielt danach zu suchen, sich selbst Chancen einzuräumen und auch im Alltag aufmerksam zu sein, durch Kleinigkeiten zu prüfen, wo man jemandem einen Gefallen tun kann. Ich liebe es natürlich, wie in allen Lebensbereichen, der Beste zu sein. Das hat mich in einem gewissen Zeitraum meines Lebens an eine absolute Grenze gebracht. An eine körperliche Grenze, sodass ich kurz vor einem Herzinfarkt stand. Ich habe festgestellt, dass ich nicht mehr den Anspruch habe, der Beste in allen Bereichen zu sein. Für mich heißt das, ich muss nicht der beste Vater der Welt sein. Ich will der beste Vater sein, der ich sein kann. Ich will mir Mühe geben, will mich anstrengen. Aber ich muss nicht um jeden Preis alles noch besser machen als andere. Vergleichbarkeit ablegen. Auch beim Surfen. Ich kann mich an eine coole Session erinnern. Da war ich mit ein paar Briten drin. Mörderwellen, viel zu groß – und ich bin da halt rein. Die haben sich alle gegenseitig angefeuert, selbst mich, obwohl sie sich nur untereinander kannten. Das zu erleben, sich gegenseitig zu supporten – das finde ich einfach grandios. Es muss aber nicht um jeden Preis sein! Ich will einfach Spaß haben, mein Ding machen. Auch im Beruf! Aber wenn ich unzufrieden bin, sauer bin oder mit schlechter Energie nach Hause komme, das vielleicht im schlimmsten Fall an meiner Familie auslasse, dann ist es da nicht wert. Jeder Sportler, der antritt, will die Nummer eins sein. Was braucht es, die Nummer eins zu sein? Das habe ich am eigenen Leib gespürt. Du musst alles andere dieser Sache unterordnen – bedingungslos. Diesen Wunsch verspüre ich in dieser Form nicht mehr. Das war für mich die Bestätigung, dass schon alles richtig und stimmig war. Es wird Zeiten geben, in denen ich mehr den Bereich Beruf forciere. Den habe ich in Portugal komplett vernachlässigt. Das werde ich jetzt wieder ändern. Die wichtigste Erkenntnis für mich war, klare Neins zu formulieren. -> Diese Punkte möchte ich besonders verdeutlichen! Beruf, Beziehung, Gesundheit und Inspiration. Das sind viele kleine Ziele die ich mir vorgenommen habe. Ich weiss das es Phasen gibt wo manche Bereiche mehr Aufmerksamkeit bekommen. Für mich ist in Summe die Ausgeglichenheit wichtig. Der Beste sein ist nicht mein Anspruch. Mein bestes geben in dem jeweiligen Bereich der für mich gerade wichtig ist, und auf meinen perfekten Unternehmertag einzahlt, ist mir wichtig. Und jetzt weiter im Text Das Perfekte und gerade auch dieser perfekte Tag ist immer einem gewissen Wandel unterzogen. Ich plane meinen perfekten Unternehmertag jedes Jahr neu. Zum Jahresanfang nehme ich mir die Zeit dafür. Warum? Damit ich für mich sicherstellen kann, dass meine Zielausrichtung passt, sich alles stimmig anfühlt und dass ich das den Gegebenheiten anpasse. Ich lebe in einer Ehe. Ich habe zwei Kinder. Das war letztes Jahr noch nicht so. Das ist etwas, bei dem ich für mich prüfen muss: Wie hat sich das entwickelt? Wie passt das alles zusammen? Der perfekte Unternehmertag ist auch ein Gefühl. Und für mich ist das Ziel, das Streben, dieses Gefühl so oft und so lange wie möglich zu haben. Ich fühle mich ausgeglichen in all diesen Dingen. Diese zehn Wochen haben mir gezeigt, dass ich diese Umstände noch ein bisschen verbessern kann. Ich möchte diese Weiterentwicklung. Für mich ist Stillstand das Schlimmste. Aber immer prüfen, zu welchem Preis! Bringt mich das gerade meinem Ziel näher? Und dann dieses Wort Nein fest in seinen Wortschatz verankern. Damit man sagen kann „All diese Dinge mache ich nicht!“. Warum? Weil es mich mehr Energie kostet, als es mir nützt. Zusammenfassung der 3 wichtigsten Dinge: Definiere deine Mission. Stecke Deine Prioritäten ab, Kämpfe für deine Ausgeglichenheit. die Shownotes zu dieser Folge findest Du unter de/531 alle Links habe ich Dir dort aufbereitet und Du kannst die Inhalte der Folge noch einmal nachlesen Dir hat die Folge gefallen und Du konntest sofort etwas umsetzen?

The Courageous Ask Brian Kreeger pt 1 We have all seen the news reports of someone of some esteemed importance getting caught up in some kind of scandal. Politicians. High level executives. Hollywood elite or sports superstars. It's all so shocking and everyone wonders how they could have allowed it to happen. But there are others that fall into the same temptations. Pastors. Ministry leaders. Non-profit leaders. It doesn't have to a major scandal, affair or corruption. Often, it's not. But the stigma and embarrassment of what happens can cost marriages, careers and, in some cases, the people involved may even take their own life! My guest today is Brian Kreeger, author of the book https://amzn.to/3HTbpLx (“The Courageous Ask: A Proactive Approach to Prevent the Fall of Christian Non-Profit Leaders.”) Brian was the founder of a great non-profit health clinic in a major metropolitan city – who lost his identity and, well, let's say, “fell from grace.” His calling is to share his story and what he has learned and observed in others – all for the purpose of helping Board of Directors and others in various leadership positions to prevent their leaders from succumbing to these temptations. Brian's book, https://amzn.to/3HTbpLx (“The Courageous Ask: A Proactive Approach to Prevent the Fall of Christian Non-Profit Leaders,”) is a great read and will be a great resource for your leadership teams, from churches to businesses. Help me welcome to the program, Brian Kreeger. Brian, thank you for joining us today. First question, other than that brief information I just shared, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Brian Kreeger?” Everyone wants to be a leader. They see the leader out front. They see the leader getting the glory and praise – and they want that. What they don't see though, is the pressure, the failures, – they don't realize the aloneness a leader can feel. You were in the National Guard, you were in management in civilian life, and then you started a non-profit in a poverty-stricken area. Were you becoming a leader through all of these careers and is running the non-profit what you believed your life calling was going to be? I always believe that “ministry” is not just preaching the Gospel. You used a health clinic to share the Love of God with those that entered your doors. But, you were also being pressured to be more up front and “in your face” type of witnessing to the patients you were treating. Tell us about that type of pressure and why you resisted doing that type of “witnessing” in the clinic… Many people have a peer they can talk with at work about problems and situations. But not so for the leader. How important is it for a leader to have a confidant, an accountability partner (so to speak) that they can vent to and seek guidance, etc.? Your book is titled, https://amzn.to/3HTbpLx (“The Courageous Ask: A Proactive Approach to Prevent the Fall of Christian Non-Profit Leaders,”) why this book for the time in which we live? This is not a “pie in the sky” type of book that talks about theoretical things. This is based upon your own life experiences. Can you give us the background or basis for writing this book? In your book, you said your success caused you to, more or less, take responsibility for the continued success of your non-profit upon yourself and took it away from God. You reference an example of not golfing because a donor might think you were wasting donated money and things like that. How do leaders drift into that mindset that everything is “their” responsibility? Go down into the show notes and order Brian Kreegers book, https://amzn.to/3HTbpLx (“The Courageous Ask: A Proactive Approach to Prevent the Fall of Christian Non-Profit Leaders,”) while you are thinking about it. In fact, order two or three copies. Give them out to your Board of Directors, your church leadership, your pastor. You never know how just ONE TIP from Brian Kreeger could... Support this podcast
