October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month – you are now aware of this concept. But let's go deeper. We need to get past awareness, we need to think about our collective contributions to the solution.  Joining me today are Megan Gausemel, Director of Awareness Planning and Operations at Special Olympics International and Ben Collins, 40-year Special Olympic athlete, and the first athlete with a intellectual disability to be hired at Special Olympics headquarters – that what was 29 years ago.  When I was first introduced to Ben, the last line of his bio nearly made me cry, he said,  “If I didn't have Special Olympics in my life I would be sitting at home or on the sidelines doing nothing at all.” Listen in to Megan and Ben's important story.

These athletes have played tough opponents in their sporting careers, but will they be a match for Clint Eastwood's grandson when it comes to “Bachelorette” Michelle Young's heart? Go ahead, make my day. PS – There's a spoiler alert included in the last bio so skip that if you want to be surprised. Bryan Witzman Michelle has said that her favorite restaurants are food trucks, so maybe that's something she'll have in common with former NFL (National Football League) player and self-described amateur chef Bryan Witzmann. Witzmann, who is 6'7” to Michelle's 5'9,” played football in college and played for nine different NFL teams, most notably the Kansas City Chiefs. Joe Coleman Will Joe Coleman be the Mr. to Michelle's Mrs.? Both from Minneapolis, he was named Minnesota's Mr. Basketball in high school, and she was a finalist for Minnesota's Miss Basketball award. Rumor has it that the two may have known each other from playing college basketball. Olumide Onajide Former Rutgers basketball player Olumide Onajide could be just what Michelle is looking for, the “superman to her superwoman,” as her bio says. He works as a field systems analyst, model and writes a fitness column. Alec Thompson If she's looking for a man with heart, Alec Thompson might be it. The Special Olympics volunteer is a civil engineer living in South Carolina. (Michelle is in Minnesota). Thompson might know a thing or two about structure and discipline that a former school teacher like Michelle would appreciate as he played football during his time at the Virginia Military Institute. Clayton Echard Will orthopedic sales rep Clayton Echard be that “confident but not cocky” dream man Michelle is looking for? The former University of Missouri football player and former freestyle rapper (wait, what?) loves spending time outdoors. And SPOILER, he is rumored to be the next “Bachelor.” If you haven't already, make sure to select your picks in our Bachelorette Bracket in partnership with I Hate Green Beans.

#141: Did you know that regardless if you are running a nonprofit or a for-profit business/organization, the mindset and the steps to either fundraise or get clients to buy your program is the same? Surprising, right? However, running either a for or nonprofit is very similar, and we can learn a lot from each other. Today's guest, Mary Valloni, is a fundraising coach, trainer, and author, who helps nonprofit and ministry leaders raise more funds and have more freedom. Mary is the former Development Director for Special Olympics, the ALS Association, and the American Cancer Society. With over 20 years of fundraising experience, she has coached thousands of individuals and organizations through her proven 7-step process. Mary is the award-winning author of the book, Fundraising Freedom, the co-founder of Fully Funded Academy, and co-host of the Fully Funded Podcast. This episode covers what to look for to make sure that a charity or cause you want to financially invest in is legitimate, why regardless which sector you are in, the #1 thing is to make sure that your message is clearly defined and Mary's signature 7 step process to fundraising freedom (also applicable for businesses preparing their programs/services to sell). This episode is jam-packed full of great ideas, so let's get to it!  Learn Why Nonprofits and For-profits are Actually Similar ...

I'm excited to be joined on this episode by my friend Mary Valloni, who is here to help us improve our mindset and develop a greater sense of abundance. That's such a critical element of our writing, because, without the proper mindset, we will always be limited by our own perception of what is possible. Mary is a fundraising coach and consultant who helps leaders with great causes raise more money with less pain. She has raised millions of dollars through her work as the development director of the American Cancer Society, the ALS Association, and the Special Olympics. Now, she teaches and trains individuals and organizations, big and small, how to fundraise with more freedom and less burnout. In this conversation, we dive into the reasons behind a scarcity mindset and how we can begin developing a more abundant mindset. I have to tell you, this is an absolutely critical topic because if we are going to have more and accomplish more, we must first have to be more. Before we dive into the conversation, I want to remind you to check out two excellent resources from Mary. The first is her book, Fundraising Freedom. Now, I don't want you to dismiss this book just because you may not work for a ministry organization or a non-profit. This is a stellar book on business and mindset. It's really an essential resource for any business person, in my opinion. The second resource is the Fully Funded Podcast, which Mary hosts with the amazing Mike Kim. Mike is a marketer and author, and these two work together on this podcast to help missionaries, ministry leaders, campus ministers, and church planters grow their donor base and raise more financial support. This interview is special to me because Mary is from St. Louis, where I live as well. It's not often that I get to interview someone who's actually from my area!

Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Adam Germek, President and CEO of Special Olympics Tennessee, who highlights the organization's mission and efforts to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community. During the interview, Adam talks about their events, the different sports, being volunteer powered, their newest initiative with Unified Champion Schools, how the community can get involved and much more.Special Olympics Mission: The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.I personally got involved when my daughter was born 10 years ago.  She was born with a rare genetic disorder and my wife and I were told that she may never walk, talk, dress herself, feed herself, etc.  I was working in professional sports for the Memphis Grizzlies and needed to make a career change in order to be more available to support my daughter.  Thankfully a position was open with Special Olympics that allowed me to share my passion for sports and also my passion for supporting individuals with intellectual disabilities.  It has been such an amazing journey and one our family is so thankful for.Special Olympics hosts over 250 events each year throughout the state with local, regional and state events in 18 sports. Traditional sports like Track and field, team sports like flag football and basketball and even winter sports with skiing, ice skating and snowboarding.Our newest initiative which started 4 years ago is a program called Unified Champion Schools.  This is a program that is funded through a grant from the Department of Special Education and allows us to go into schools with funding to help the school, school district and community create inclusive environments for all students.  There are 3 components to this program, student leadership, whole school engagement and Unified sports opportunities (traditional students paired with students with disabilities).Special Olympics is working with TSSAA to sanction sports for Unified Teams to allow individuals with intellectual disabilities train and compete for a state championship for their school.  Currently Track and Field and Bowling are sanctioned TSSAA sports.Outside of sports, Special Olympics also offers FREE health screenings in multiple disciplines including  vision screenings, hearing screenings, free sports physicals, and a strong minds program that offers tips for social and emotional wellness support.Ways community members can get involved: coming out of COVID, we have a strong need for people interested in coaching, event volunteers and management team members for local programs.Upcoming events: pending COVID restrictions, we have upcoming events listed on our website that include our State Flag Football Tournament, State Golf events, State bowling events and Young athlete camps.Learn more:Facebook:             https://www.facebook.com/specialolympicstn/Twitter:                 @sotennesseeWebsite:                https://www.specialolympicstn.org/Instagram:             specialolympicstn

Mike joins us from Southern Ontario. He grew up in a small town near Niagara Falls. As a kid he helped his father deliver milk by horse and cart and was paid in dairy. Finding out later that he was lactose intolerant, he knew this might be a sign. Eventually becoming a CPA and partner at a large firm, Mike spent ungodly hours building his career – putting a strain on his family life. Moving on to work as a CFO for a Multinational firm he lived a life of mergers, acquisitions and cultural takeovers.

YJHTL intention for featuring Deron Cherry is his service to humanity. He shares the joy of growing up in his small city of Riverside, New Jersey and the incredible friends and family that shaped his life. Deron's work ethic and commitment to excellence, be it professional football or community service is nothing short of inspiring. We gladly share more of Deron's history. Deron Cherry played exclusively for the Kansas City Chiefs from 1981 to 1991. He attended Rutgers University and graduated as a biology major. He played football there as a starting free safety and punter. In 1979, he was named the team's MVP. In 1979 and 1980, Cherry earned the Associcated Press All-state honors. Deron is regarded as one of the best free safeties to have ever played the game. He was a six-time Pro Bowl selection from 1983 to 1988, starting five of them in his 11 years with the Chiefs. Few other Chiefs players have been selected to this number of Pro Bowls. He had six 100 tackle seasons in his 11 years as a member of the Chiefs, with a career total of 927 tackles. In 1987, he won the Byron “Whizzer” White NFL Man of the Year award. This award annually recognizes one player who goes above and beyond to perform community service in his hometown and team city. Other recipients include Bart Starr, Gayle Sayers, Floyd Little, Archie Manning, Roger Staubach, Franco Harris, Gene Upshaw, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees. Prior to receiving this award, he was the Chiefs NFL Man of the Year selection in 1987. This is the most prestigious award given by the NFL Players Association. Deron also was awarded the NFL's 1980's All-Decade team and in is also in the Kansas City Chiefs Hall of Fame. Deron is actively involved in several civic organizations, including Special Olympics, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Project Warmth, Score 1 for Health, Camp Quality USA, and the United Negro College Fund. For the past 25 years, Cherry has hosted his Celebrity Invitational. This tournament has raised over $3 million to support the children of the Kansas City area. Cherry is a frequent guest speaker at civic, charitable, and corporate events throughout the country. In 1995, Deron became a limited ownership partner in one of the NFL's then-new expansion teams, the Jacksonville Jaguars. This made him the first minority owner of an NFL franchise in the league's history. Cherry is also a managing general partner with United Beverage, a local Anheuser-Busch distributor in Kansas City.

ROI’s Into the Corner Office Podcast: Powerhouse Middle Market CEOs Telling it Real—Unexpected Career Conversations

In honor of the Tokyo Olympics, we are re-releasing episode 34 of the show which features Matt DiLorenzo, CEO of TYR Sport, a company that serves some of the world's best athletes. Named as one of the ten most influential people in swimming by Swimming World Magazine, TYR Sport Chief Executive Officer Matt DiLorenzo has proven to drive his industry in both innovation and design. As a leading manufacturer of swim and triathlon gear, DiLorenzo's brand has outfitted some of the greatest names in sports including 12x Olympic Medalist Ryan Lochte. Today, his company boasts an impressive roster of over thirty professional athletes and has expanded global distribution to include seventy-five countries. Under DiLorenzo's leadership TYR Sport has secured major national partnerships with U.S.A Swimming, U.S.A Water Polo, U.S. Masters Swimming and over fifty-five universities and colleges. Most recently, TYR also announced its position as the new title sponsor of the 2018 TYR Pro Swim Series. However, Matt's commitment to pushing the envelope has catapulted the brand far beyond just domestic success. Internationally, TYR functions as the official product supplier for all aquatic disciplines within LEN (The European Swimming League). In addition, TYR technical suits, swimskins, wetsuits and equipment have been worn by athletes at the highest levels of international competition including the IRONMAN World Championships and the Summer Olympic Games. Responsible for building major community based initiatives on behalf of his brand, DiLorenzo continues to find ways to give back. Throughout his tenure TYR has participated in learn to swim clinics and programs. In 2012, TYR launched its first TYR Pink collection; a line of products dedicated to fighting the battle against breast cancer. Since then TYR has donated over $325,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), with the line continuing to grow each year. In addition to Hurricane Harvey relief, DiLorenzo and team TYR athletes most recently worked alongside the Mac Crutchfield Foundation to support drowning prevention programs and events, as well as the Special Olympics. In recognition of his major contributions to both TYR Sport and the industry as a whole, DiLorenzo was presented with the Sporting Goods Business 40 Under 40 award by The SportsOneSource Group in 2013. He is a graduate of Villanova University with a Bachelor of Science degree in both finance and economics.
