Join us for this Episode of Exploring Mind and Body as Drew and Dorothy talk about what it was like to welcome a homeless man into their home for the night.
 
Bing Bing Lei, spreading equal and unconditional love for all. Amazing individual walking around the world, homeless and won't accept money, only food donations and sometimes a place to stay.
When he asked, we didn't think twice. Why wouldn't you let someone stay with you that needed shelter? Why wouldn't you feed someone that was hungry?
 
Bing walked out of our lives as quietly and smoothly as he walked in. Wouldn't take food because he had enough, didn't want the lights on because he didn't want to waste energy. Didn't take up much space because he didn't need it.
 
He showered, washed his clothes, shared stories of living on the road and likely gave us much more than we gave him.

Beginning with Deloitte, Tommy achieved 20 years of business notoriety and financial success as a large firm financial consultant.

Tommy felt forced to make decisions out of fear and scarcity instead of abundance. He felt like he did not have a choice.

His experiences led him to found Choose Goodness, a movement encouraging individuals and business organizations to search for unmet human needs that create transformational impact on themselves, their business, and society at large.

Part CEO, part personal development wonk, and part biohacker info geek, Thom King is
a self-confessed serial entrepreneur. While his favorite book list contains many success-oriented and personal-development classics, the traditional definition of achieving success (e.g. make a lot of money) is not what inspires or motivates King. He follows more of a “you aren’t doing well unless you’re also doing some good” line of thinking. King’s company has been built around the simple principle of
“do the right thing.”

In 1999, Thom’s personal passion for food and his concern over the explosion of metabolic disease led him to found Steviva Brands, now known as Icon Foods, with a mission to stem the tide of “diabesity” by providing consumers healthy alternatives to sugar. In recent years, his passion for food and optimal health have intersected with his embrace of a ketogenic (low carb, high fat) diet. Thom’s latest project is a line of ketogenic condiments intended to help more people successfully adopt a healthier lifestyle.

Thor Conklin is an Entrepreneur, Profitability Consultant and host of his daily podcast, Peak Performers Podcast.  2018 marks his 18th year as an entrepreneur.  The first company Thor created was a global risk management consulting firm that served the private equity community.  His top 15 clients had a combined revenue of $12.7 billion USD and operated in over 100 countries worldwide. His background, in risk management, served him well when he lost 1/3 of his team, in the World Trade Center attacks, on 9/11.  Since that time, he has started, bought and sold several multi-million dollar businesses making him a sought after, cross-industrial resource for entrepreneurs and executives in all stages of business.

Thor has a talent for slicing through the noise of every day distractions and bringing his clients and audiences intellectual commodities like his: “Ultimate Success Map”, a simplistic, easy-to- follow guide for individuals who need to break through to the next level of achievement.  

96% of business fail within 10 years.  The ONLY reason they fail is lack of Profits.  Of the 4% that do survive, many only produce enough profits to break even, pay the owner a meager wage or provide shareholders below market returns.  Mr. Conklin’s extensive background and expertise allows him to not only identify the specific profitability killers that are siphoning off profits but work with the business to fix them.  Despite the leader’s best efforts, many business owners and executive cannot see these profitability killers as they are too close to the company.

Thor’s gritty, no nonsense and direct approach uncovers the real truth about what is holding people and organizations back from realizing their full potential.  He can illuminate even the most successful and confident leader’s limiting beliefs. He is known as the Accountability & Execution Guy.  

Through his consulting firm, Peak Performance Group, he teaches the tools, tips, tricks, psychology and strategies necessary to be a Peak Performer. He qualifies the psychology of success in one word: Execution”!  “Nothing you’ve learned matters – unless you can EXECUTE”!

You may also have heard him on ABC, WGN, and/or CBS radio, or UPN TV. Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food obsessed individuals, Dr. Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his own patients AND a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants. Most important, however, was his own personal journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food.

I am a life long resident of Red Deer and over my life span I have worked for a corporation, owned small businesses and been involved in several non profit boards. I have been married to my wife Cindy for 35 years and had 4 children, John my oldest then James, Stephanie and Lindsey. The Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce has been my job for the last 14 years in my role as manager of membership & community relations. Our lives were turned upside down with the loss of our youngest daughter Lindsey.

Lindsey took her life 2 years ago at the age of 22 suffering from depression, an illness we never knew she battled. I have been down a road no parent ever wants to go down and on this journey I am trying to learn about mental health and depression. After Lindsey’s death Cindy and I started a self-directed endowment fund in honor of our amazing daughter.

November of 2015 we started Smiles Thru Lindsey Foundation to raise funds for mental health in our youth. In the short 2 years the foundation has raised close to $250,000 from many fund raising events that have been created by our business community. We will continue to finance programs that will impact our youth that have suffered this illness alone because of the many stigmas surrounding this topic.

Recently we have given $10,000 to the Catholic Schools for mental Health First Aid and just yesterday donated $10,000 to public schools for resources to help students from K- Grade 5. I will continue to advocate the Government to implement and direct health care dollars to mental health.

Michael DiSalvo is CEO of Coconut Country Living, an Organic Gluten Free SuperfoodsCompany dedicated to healing the body and our planet. After being diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis in 1993, Michael spent many years wrestling with pain, anxiety, and depression until learning about the secrets of Ayurveda and natural medicine.

Having met his wife of 9 years in the outback of Perth, Australia, at the complete opposite side of the world from Cincinnati, Ohio, he learned the ancient healing secrets that not only made him mobile without medication, but allowed him to reveal these healing secrets to thousands of Americans who were sick of suffering from the status quo in the lackluster land of allopathy.

Michael has authored several books, including How Ginger the Kitchen Movie Star Can Spice Up Your Cooking and Make You HOLLYWOOD Beautiful and The History of Turmeric's Secret Benefits for Health and Beauty What the Yogis Aren't Telling You. He continues to live in Cincinnati with his wife and two young children, and they expect another little girl to join their family in March 2017.

Do you remember the name Crowley who in 1931 was deemed one of the most dangerous criminals NYC has ever seen. Kind of odd that a man who's nick name was 'two gun' didn't think he was wrong. In fact in a letter he wrote about himself, he mentioned his "weary and kind heart that wouldn't harm anyone".

After being sentenced to the electric chair Crowley said, 'this is what I get for defending myself'.

How about Al Capone, we remember his name. A notorious gangster that ran the streets of NYC and then Chicago's. Well, he didn't think he was wrong either.

He said, "I've spent the best years for my life giving people the lighter pleasures, helping them have a good time".

Recently I was working with a group I wasn't getting the results I wanted. I thought to myself over and over again, why aren't they doing this or that, why can't they understand?

Then I thought to myself, what I am doing wrong. At first, I couldn't figure it out, my directions were clear, my expectations didn't seem to be too much.

But I continued to think 'how can I change', 'how can I make an adjustment to get them to response differently'.

The truth is, we never think we're wrong, it's always the other person/people. Many times we're pointing the finger but don't take responsibility.

So here's what happened, I changed my attitude, my perspective, changed the program and you know what. This group changed too. They started doing what was expected, what was asked. The energy changed in the room, they got more out of it and so did I.

Something to think about if you aren't getting the end result you're looking for. Maybe, just maybe, it's not them. It's you.

Kathrine Switzer has long been one of running’s most iconic figures. But when she was inducted into the U.S.A. National Women’s Hall of Fame last year, it was not just for breaking barriers being the first female to finish the Boston Marathon, or last woman to win the NYC Marathon, but also for creating positive global social change. Because of her, millions of women are now empowered by the simple act of running.
