Getting hired on with a fire department is a dream come true! It's one of the reasons why we fight so hard to obtain a career in the fire service. We are all attracted to this job for different reasons, but one thing remains true; that we are passionate about helping others. Sometimes once we fight so hard to get hired on, we tend to let complacency creep in and we wind up letting our fitness go. Maybe we stop working toward that degree we promised ourselves we'd earn. Or maybe we've checked out when it comes to living up to the things we said we'd do and the people we said we were in our interview. In today's episode, I will ask the question, “what ignites you?” as a way to help you look within and perform a sort-of self evaluation so that you don't slip into complacency, you can remember what you're passionate about, and you can bring that passion to your crew and the people you serve. -- IGNITEd Firefighter Podcast Facebook Group MANSCAPED (use code IGNITED for 20% off and FREE SHIPPING) --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ignitedff/message
You've heard me talk a lot about organizational culture on this podcast. One of the main reasons is that I'm incredibly fascinated by the elements that make up a company's or fire department's culture, good or bad. I'm interested in learning what makes good organizations thrive and bad organizations fail. I am always looking for the elements that contribute to each side of that coin. So, what I did was take my own advice! I reverse engineered things! I took a look at what I determined to be a toxic culture and I worked back from there. And what I came away with was an equation… In today's episode, I will tell you what that equation is, I will break down each element OF that equation, and I will provide you with some strategies and insight that you can take back to your own organizations to help foster the organizational culture for the better. -- IGNITEd Firefighter Podcast Facebook Group MANSCAPED (use code IGNITED for 20% off and FREE SHIPPING) --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ignitedff/message
Solving problems is at the heart of what we do in the Fire and EMS world. In the field, we take different approaches to solving the unique problems that we are faced with at any given moment. Some of us use a linear approach while others use more of a dynamic approach. Personally, I like looking at a problem from all angles, then choosing the one that would work best for me AND everyone else involved. In today's episode, I will talk about how we can solve problems by reverse engineering them, what that actually means and what it looks like, and I will provide you with the basics that can help you implement this system into your repertoire. -- IGNITEd Firefighter Podcast Facebook Group MANSCAPED (use code IGNITED for 20% off and FREE SHIPPING) --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ignitedff/message

We all know that in order to build muscle, we need to engage in some form of resistance training. We push or pull against some form of resistance and eventually over time, our muscles grow and as a result, we become stronger. Ultimately, we adapt to meet the need. This exact principle applies to every aspect of our lives, not just in the physical aspect. We grow stronger by being met with resistance and by being persistent in the face of that resistance. In today's episode, I will talk about the different types of resistance we face as firefighters, how we can choose to accept that resistance as a benefit to us, and ultimately come out stronger for it. -- IGNITEd Firefighter Podcast Facebook Group MANSCAPED (use code IGNITED for 20% off and FREE SHIPPING) Spartan Race --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ignitedff/message

In part 3 of the 'Your Purpose Ignited' Series we are digging into mental health & the emotions that hold us back from feeling like our true selves and from fulfilling the purpose God has on our lives. The enemy loves isolation. He wants you to live alone, distracting you from God's word & stealing every ounce of joy & peace from your life. Mostly, he wants you to distract you from your purpose and life calling. He finds ways to fill your heads with unhealthy, untrue thoughts that only bring you down and detour you from stepping into greatness and the true calling God has empowered you to serve with joy and fulfillment. In turn, how you can make an impact. We break down 6 possible reasons we get into depression & anxiety and that when healthy relationships are built, and when we learn to speak truth in our inner daily thoughts, we can start to surrender and find joy in our everyday. It's time to become self aware and realize when we are speaking lies, listening to the enemy and choosing to live by our emotions verses the truth and healthy daily structure & grace He has given each of us to live a joyful & fulfilled life. Now, I am not a doctor & I firmly believe that we are all on a different journey. I always recommend seeing a doctor, counselor or Psychiatrist if you're having suicidal thoughts or feeling extreme symptoms of depression. Mental health can be a controversial subject. However, there are come common denominators that we all share that I believe we can learn to put into practice to help us through life. And when done together, with healthy relationships and the truth of who God says YOU ARE, you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Let's Connect!!

Shari Boyer founded Plant Society with the mission of educating and providing access to natural remedies for optimal wellness. She was motivated to action by seeing the influence of pharmaceutical companies on our health care system, as well as the poor food available through most mainstream food companies. In this episode, Nada sits down with Shari Boyer to discuss her passion and her company, Plant Society. With the legalization of Cannabis in California, Shari entered the wild wild west by launching her website of curated products and in-depth content about Cannabis and CBD. After extensive research, partnering with an RN who is a medical cannabis advocate and developing an 8-point testing standard, her passion for CBD as a way to heal, became a thriving business. Shari shares how you don't always have to develop your own products, you can curate and amplify the best ones already available and become a trusted resource for customers.Since Plant Society wasn't Shari's first entry into entrepreneurship, she learned that the most important thing she needed to launch was a one-page business plan and a five-year vision. Due to the legal issues around advertising cannabis, Shari turned her focus to engaging with various communities to spread the word about her offering. As a founder, she implores us to “stay flexible and listen”— just a few gems you'll gather from this conversationYou can learn more about Shari and Plant Society by visiting Plant Society's website here.

When I was trying to get a career in the fire service, I didn't have anyone to help me. I didn't have family or friends that were doing the job. I don't come from a “legacy family”. I worked hard and forged ahead down a path of self and institutionalized education. It was extremely challenging and I really wish I had someone help me along the path. I could've avoided some pitfalls and some setbacks along the way. My goal with the IGNITEd Recruit Academy is to provide that mentorship to you by passing along some of the tips and tricks I've learned over the years. I've been a firefighter/paramedic for 15 years and I've been a part of numerous hiring processes. I'm here to provide you some insight and guidance on things you need to incorporate and refine in order to get your dream job! In today's episode, I will go over what the IGNITEd Recruit Academy is and why you should join if you're currently trying to get hired on. -- IGNITEd Recruit Academy IGNITEd Firefighter Podcast Facebook Group --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ignitedff/message

A small spark of wonder ignited into a burning passion to do something meaningful, something that matters for Parks and Public Lands thus Wild Tribute was born. We talk about that inspiration, the people behind Wild Tribute, how they get their cool artwork, and more. Facebook Twitter Instagram The Outdoor Biz Podcast Please give us a rating and review HERE Show Notes Wild Tribute Ben Kieffner Brian Stowers Sean Stowers How Ben Got into the Outdoors I grew up in the state of Kentucky. It was always in the woods playing and in the creeks behind my home and playing with friends outside. And I think that just naturally spiraled into an affinity for being outside and then have the opportunity to move west and live in Denver for some time. That's what really, I think, opened my eyes to the mountain life and more or less just all the adventures that can be had. 4% to National Parks and Public Lands 4% of our top-line revenues, go back to organizations that support our national parks and public lands. And that's really why we do what we do. And so that's always been at the forefront of all of our decision-making and anything and everything we do, specific to a business strategy. Printed and Fulfilled in the US The product is primarily manufactured in central America and then it is finished in the United States. Predominantly it should be understood that we get the product, we source it, and then we manufacture it. But then everything is more or less printed fulfilled in the right here in the states, whether that's in Utah, where we're based or some of our partners are in California as well. Ben's thoughts on how we can educate new outdoor participants about the basics of camping and hiking? So we gotta do our part. Of course. So I think to answer your question, part of its repetitions, I think hopefully more people go out and it's not just this one experience. I think more often than not one experience takes you to another, but after one, two, three, four times, and these places that are striking you with inspiration and awe, I think it kicks in that, okay, I'm going to take care of this place a little better and clean up after myself. Advice for folks wanting to get into the outdoor biz. Just like any job, I think you've got to find you got to find a company or a project that you connect to and see where it takes you. And flexibility is obviously I think important for folks that are in an outdoor industry, so they can focus on what they love doing during most of the day, but they also want to recreate Because that's a big reason why I entered the industry in the first place. So flexibility is important, but at the same time, it's also a perk.

Scripture: John 16:7-11 (King James Version)Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. 8 And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 of sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; 11 of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.Romans 12:1-2 (NIV)Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

What is going on in Israel? More than 1500 rockets fired by Hamas and the Islamic Jihad in the last 48 hours, after Hamas promised to hurt Israel for banning access to Dom of the Rock from Muslims. Ramadhan fest, the flag march on Jerusalem day, Sheich Jarach, all came down to a climax, but what ignited the ongoing round of violence, what is happening in Israel and Gaza, and why. That is what I am here to discuss with my friend Jeff Becker.
As Barbara Hannah Grufferman approached her 50th birthday, she was feeling, as she describes it, the “umpies”: lumpy, grumpy, and frumpy. Her health wasn’t great: she’d spent her adult life putting the needs of everyone else ahead of herself: work, family, community. And now those choices were catching up to her. And, she’d just gone through menopause, which had had it’s own challenging impact. The spark and grit she’d had before seemed to be fading into the past. Maybe this is what getting older and seeing the other side of menopause was all about? she thought.And then, a pointed comment by her then young daughter and a well-timed Wall Street Journal article changed everything. Barbara, who’d never been a runner, set down a path of marathon running, health and wellness, and discovering how to age the very best she could. Since that day, 15 years ago, Barbara has completed over a dozen marathons and one ultra, and there’s more to come. She also shares her wisdom and lived experience of achieving wellness and health after 50 with a growing number of woman in her work as an advocate for aging well. Barbara has written two books, writes a newsletter, has spoken in public on many occasions, and so much more. In a word, Barbara is vibrant.

I’ve heard people give other firefighters compliments that sound like, “oh they’re an ‘aggressive’ firefighter” or “they are an aggressive paramedic!” But what exactly does this mean, and is it a good thing? I would say ‘yes’, being aggressive in your mode of execution but not your method is the key. Jocko Willink says that “being proactive and aggressive are similar, and they are both good.” and the idea for the title of this episode comes from him and his team at Echelon Front. In today’s episode, I will define what it means to be an aggressive firefighter and paramedic and I will break down, with the help of Jocko, what having the attitude of DEFAULT: AGGRESSIVE means and how we can incorporate that way of thinking and operating. -- Echelon Front IGNITEd Firefighter Podcast Facebook Group *The DEFAULT: AGGRESSIVE brand is property of Echelon Front and is not affiliated with IGNITEd, LLC. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ignitedff/message
In the fire service, it is our job to be the ones to enter dangerous situations in order to decrease damage and improve the odds of life safety. Whether we are conscious of it or not, we are taking risk into consideration. We get called to a scene, size-up the situation, and then we determine what resources we will need in order to mitigate the problem. Currently, in America, we are facing one of the largest pandemics in our history. We should be cautious, but we still need to live our lives. There is risk in everything! Living our lives in fear creates a culture of fear, and when people are afraid, they do some pretty stupid stuff. In today’s episode, I will talk about what the risk vs benefit analysis is, how we can take ownership of our own personal risk, what we can to do reduce the risk among our crew mates, and I will provide you with a matrix that you can use to base your future risk management practices on in the field. -- IGNITEd.com IGNITEd Online Shop IGNITEd Firefighter Podcast Facebook Group --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ignitedff/message
It’s been said that the person who doesn’t read has NO advantage over the person who cannot read. This has become more and more prevalent to me as I collect years in the fire service. If you’ve followed me for any amount of time, then you know how much I love reading books. I’m constantly referencing them, I’ve got a list of some of my most influential reads on the IGNITEd website, and I am continually on the prowl for my next read. In today’s episode, I’m going to talk about the ways that reading improves us as individuals as well as a profession as a whole. -- IGNITEd Readers Book Club IGNITEd Firefighter Podcast Facebook Group POMPEII: A Novel by Robert Harris --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ignitedff/message
Today I wanted to talk about something that's been on my mind a lot recently, because here at Dirty Alchemy we’re gearing up to launch some big courses for our clients over the next few months, and we're also in the midst of launching our own program — the Alchemical Business Intensive — which you've probably heard me talking about on this very podcast recently.What I wanted to talk to you about today is the difference between an EGO LAUNCH and a SOUL LAUNCH.This isn't something I hear people talking about a lot, even in the spiritual, magical, and self-help space for online businesses. Particularly on social media like Instagram, we hear so much from people talking about the big flashy things that come out of their lunches. Like six figure months or hundreds of new clients.But what we don't hear about as much is the actual launch process itself. And if you're just going by Instagram, you might sometimes be scratching your head wondering how some people seem to actually be thriving throughout their launches. They’re really tuned into their business, ecstatic about their customers, and just totally in their zone.Before we dive in & for all those who don’t really know what I mean by a LAUNCH, check out Ep 4 of this podcast, The 8 Phases You Need for a Numinous Online Launch (https://thedirtyalchemy.simplecast.com/episodes/004) - we break down the basic energetics of an online launch, or just about any project in your business.And the word NUMINOUS in there because YES it is based on Nature’s cycles, the cycles of the moon. And it respects both the expansion & contraction sides of life and our human bodies.Anyways,For anyone who has launched in the past, you probably know that launches can be insanely stressful because they’re this time of huge transformation for you and for your business. And you’re focused actions are around selling, which is uncomfortable for lots of people.But what most people don’t know — even people who have launched programs or memberships before — is that your launch is never going to look like another business’s.It can’t. And it shouldn’t.So if you ever catch yourself thinking, “I wish my launch could just be like [insert business you totally fangirl over here]…”Stop that!Your launch plan is as unique as your program is. As unique as you are. As unique as your customers are. You really don’t want to fall into the trap of thinking there’s a “right” way to market or a “right” way to launch. It does not serve you, your business, or the world to follow a path that doesn’t resonate with you just because it worked for someone else. Instead, follow the flow of your program, the energy of your ideal customers, and your gut feelings! As the CEO of your business, as a leader, and as a visionary… that’s your job. So let’s talk about what this actually looks like and how it plays out in real time. Basically, there are 2 kinds of launches — EGO LAUNCHES and SOUL LAUNCHES. Ego launches come from that desire to do what you’ve seen other people doing successfully. It’s the idea that we can use “proven formulas” to manufacture success. Like, if I just build a funnel in this exact way, and put this exact amount of money into ads, I’ll be golden. Or that all you have to do is make your audience feel a certain way to make them buy something. And most marketers telling you to do this are really telling you to focus on your customers pain points. Remind them about all the ways they’re sad or broken without you. AKA, they're going to walk away feeling bad about themselves, and you were going to walk away feeling sleazy. You've probably seen this around. I know a lot of my clients initially come to me saying, “I don’t like/ I don’t trust/ I don’t enjoy marketing because it makes me feel sleazy.” That’s ego-based marketing. And it so doesn’t have to be that way. If you look back at our interview with Amy Lorbati of Witch, Bitch, Whore in episode 17 (https://thedirtyalchemy.simplecast.com/episodes/episode-17) — we talk a lot about the difference between bro marketing and heaux marketing. And in a way that's what we're talking about here, too. The idea that someone standing in front of a yacht with khakis on and a big bag of cash can tell you exactly what you need to do to speak to your audience. Yeah… no. What actually ends up happening when you follow these “proven formulas” is that you make your launches way more complicated than they need to be. Usually with fancy tech and gadgets and a bunch of other shit you don’t even really know how to use. But you heard someone talk about it in a podcast so you think your launch has to be done this way. And yes, a lot of bro marketing is based on the newest technology and always trying to innovate, innovate, innovate -- when at the end of the day, marketing is really just about one thing: The relationship between you and your audience. And no amount of fancy tech elements are going to build that for you. You have to do it through your messaging, your online persona, your energy, your branding, etc. So with ego-based launching… you create a marketing plan -- maybe even one you copied from watching someone else’s launch -- and then you stick to it no matter what. No matter what. And if something comes up where your program isn't selling as well as you thought it would, or something isn't resonating with your audience… you just ride it out. Because you’re following a proven formula! It’s worked for other people, so it has to work for you, right? Maybe it just needs more time. But then you aren’t at your goal toward the end of your lunch (or maybe not even close to your goal…), so you get deflated and give up. You want to burn down your business. You totally lose faith— not just in your business but also who you are. Your soul purpose. Your mission in the world. These used to mean everything to you, but now you're wondering if you were wrong. Just because not enough people bought your offer. This is your brain in an ego launch! Not only can it make you feel icky and lose sales and lose the trust of your audience… but it's also really easy to feel rejected and dejected when you follow the “proven formula” and you don't see the success that was promised to you. But there is another way to launch. A way better way. A soul launch is when you tune into your audience and follow your gut and your inspiration about how to attract the right people & inspire them to sign up. This goes back to what we were saying about building a relationship with your audience and your ideal clients. If you want to be able to intuitively tune into what they want… you have to know who they are. You have to have a real relationship with them, where you were totally enchanted by them and they are totally in love with you too. And, for more on enchanting your audience, check out episode 6 of the podcast, How to Enchant Your Audience & Put Them Under Your Spell (https://thedirtyalchemy.simplecast.com/episodes/006-enchantment). We’ll link to it in the show notes. So, let’s talk about how to launch from your soul instead of your ego. A soul launch is all about doing what really excites you. It's about following your gut and having your finger on the pulse of your business so that you know what's working and what isn't working with your audience. It’s about always asking yourself how you could better communicate to your people so that they understand how life-changing / transformational /amazing your program is. And yes — it’s about BELIEVING IN YOUR OFFER! Believing that it is exceptional & extraordinary & life changing & a no brainer! I probably don't have to tell you this as a spiritual business owner -- but you have to believe that what you were putting on the table is what your audience needs. You have to believe it's going to completely transform them and change their lives. You have to be able to pull up a person from your audience in your head & actually think “YES! They need to sign up! This is what they need!!” If you're just doing something to make a quick buck (or hit your next income level) — which is something I see a lot in the ego-based marketing space… Well, you're going to realize pretty quickly that it's not working. If you don’t believe in what you’re doing, how can you expect anyone else to?? Maybe you know your mission in life is to deeply touch *your people’s* lives with your business. Now you have to commit to doing your part to get your offer out to the people who would benefit from it. Give yourself over to a greater good where you are a tool to help others realize their true worth / become happier / spiritually ascend / connect with their desires or the cosmos or their destiny — whatever your program is, you are the channel to bring that powerful energy into the world! One more thing that I want to add here is that mindset work should be an important part of any soul-based launch. I know that if you don’t have a support team then launches can make you feel like you don't have any time in the day, but mindset work is going to actually transform your launch and make it more successful. It's not something that you can put off. So double down on your mindset work and believe that launches can be fun and easy. And I promise — because I know this probably sounds crazy to a lot of people who have launched before, and the idea of “fun” is nowhere in their vocabulary during a launch — but I promise that it is possible. I've helped businesses have launches that are smooth and effortless and just completely enjoyable. Where the business owner is confused about what to do in a launch because pretty much everything is already taken care of for them.But you have to believe that it's possible and you have to be in that space in order to allow your launch to be that way. This is what opens up the SPACE within you for the thoughts & inspired actions that can allow that to be a reality. Yes, there are obviously things that help with launching no matter what. Having a group of people that you communicate with on a regular basis helps no matter what. Working on your messaging and copywriting so that your people are turned on by what you say helps no matter what. Being very clear on what juicy transformation the program provides helps no matter what. But the way that all of that is displayed will be IGNITED when it comes through you as the leader of your mission. As the visionary CEO of your business. And as the example that your shit works.So, if you're listening to this and wondering what actionable steps you can start taking to make your next launch feel like it's coming straight from your soul…And to make it fun and enjoyable instead of a stressed out mess…That's a big part of what we do in the Alchemical Business Intensive. I'll be helping 10 spiritual business owners either develop or perfect their perfect program that they can continue to offer for years to come. And once they have their perfect offer, we're going to talk about how you can build your team & create systems in your business so that your launches are actually fun. To take a lot of work off of your plate and allow you to relax into it. And you’re going to be part of a community of other like-minded CEOs who have been where you are before and can support you in sharing your soul purpose with the world.So if you always feel like you’re drowning during a launch, or you have launch PTSD and you find yourself never wanting to launch again... go to thedirtyalchemy.com/abi or click the link in the show notes to learn more about the Alchemical Business Intensive.I’ve been helping 6- and 7-figure businesses make their launches more in the flow for years so I’m really excited to be able to TEACH this to other badass women entrepreneurs and help them make a huge impact with their businesses.Because the energy you put into launching comes back to you -- and telling yourself you “never want to launch again” when your business relies on launching is just not going to get you anywhere.So if this sounds like you, I hope you’ll allow yourself to do your soul work and enjoy launching again.
